Contacting Administrators

Post by sman09 » Mon Jun 11, 2018 3:42 pm

I tried to send a DM (private message) to one of the admins with a query regarding my user account on May-18 th and as it did not go sent it again on May-19 - for some reason, both the messages are in my outbox even as of today.

would any administrator be able to look in to my account please and confirm whether the mail was sent or what else i need to do for the message to move from my outbox to sent items?

And if it would help, the user account i sent the messages to is Alex Frakt, as the profile showed as founder.

If it is in the outbox that simply means it hasn't been read. It was sent.

Thank you for the information. I am glad the message has at least reached.

Whom else other than Alex Frakt should i contact for user account related queries in that case. Being the founder, i am sure they (Alex Frakt) must be a getting a ton of mails and I can understand them not being able to respond/read every message. But is there some other member of the moderators/administrators group i could reach out to.

Thanks.

For the record, triceratop is also a moderator.

Alex hasn't posted since January so I wouldn't expect a reply very soon.

Feel free to PM me with your account questions.

If you want to know whether a recipient has read a PM, see the wiki: Was my private message read?

I sent you a PM last evening. As the message is still in my outbox, thought of letting you know via this forum.

Thank you!

There's no need to post here, I got it. Your query has been taken care of.
