I have recently come across situations on this site that I would've liked to ask and bring up to SE managers/creators without it being to the public or raising a flag. I specifically would like to have a conversation with the SE about a specific question/user that has been deleted. Is there some way I can do this? If not, can I make a request for all users to have the option/a way of contacting SE?

The first order of business is to find if you want to contact site moderators or community managers. These are disjoint groups of people: the former are volunteers, the latter are employees of Stack Something.

Moderators can be contacted using a flag, or you may be able to catch them in a chatroom. If you want to ask about a deleted question, it's more likely to be a question for moderators than for community managers.

Community managers can be contacted using the bold link contact us in the footer of every page.

That said, don't expect

to have a conversation with the SE about a specific question/user that has been deleted

They don't have time for chatting in general, and do not disclose why a user was deleted for privacy reasons.

    All of this. Moderators (and employees) can make a chat room private and can create one for you if necessary. – Andrew Leach Nov 4 '15 at 1:42
  • @AndrewLeach where do you click to have/ create a chat room – anonymous Nov 4 '15 at 1:56
  • @anonymous See How do I chat and its duplicate. There may be other answers too. – Andrew Leach Nov 4 '15 at 7:46
  • @AndrewLeach I understand that, but where may I find the chat room. I don't see anywhere where there would be an option to chat. I know I already got the privilege to chat because of my rank, but where may I go to find the chat room on the site? – anonymous Nov 4 '15 at 15:38
  • @AndrewLeach Never mind I figured it out – anonymous Nov 4 '15 at 15:55
  • @AndrewLeach How do I make my Chat room Private so the public can't gain access? Can you do that for me? – anonymous Nov 4 '15 at 15:58
  • @anonymous Yes. If you invite the moderators to your chat room (so we can find it), any of us can do that. I can't find a room created by you in ELU, though. Inviting users is also covered in the MSE posts; unfortunately it may not be straightforward because chat user ids are not the same as site user ids. – Andrew Leach Nov 4 '15 at 16:40
  • @AndrewLeach done – anonymous Nov 4 '15 at 16:46
