I wanted to drop a quick private message to an SE member. Email would be fine. Is this possible?

  • Browsing meta and found your Qn. You could try posting a comment on one of their posts, then delete it a short time later. – andy256 Apr 14 '14 at 5:15
  • Thanks @andy256, that's pretty much what I did in the end. This was a guy who had a low score/infrequent visitor and who'd asked a question about 6 months earlier. Wasn't sure if he was still using SE. – PeteH Apr 14 '14 at 9:47

If you look at the member's profile and see an email address or URL, you can contact them via that.

Otherwise, no, there is no mechanism for private messages.
