The official chatrooms here are always an option. The interface has a lot to be desired, and it isn't very active, but you can often find someone there to chat with, especially if it's about stack exchange.

I will say, for myself, that I always try to write self-answers to the same level, if not higher, as my other story-identification answers. I provide evidence, quotes, and if possible, how I found the work (although, often, this is a less-satisfying explanation of "Oh, yeah, I remembered this word I didn't mention in the question, and it took me right ...
