Hi Sven,

We do collect an email address from people when they register and the 
registration process checks that it exists at that time, but we don't keep a 
check on whether that is kept up to date over time. For example, my own 
email address has changed a couple of times since I registered. This makes 
an email route unreliable. We also commit to not give that address out or 
bombard them with spurious emails, which would be a difficult commitment to 
honor if we provided a messaging option that connected directly through to 
their email address.

There is already a feedback option on the site where registered users can 
provide both freeform and structured feedback that is visible to anyone 
using the search/browse screen. However, for contributors to see this 
feedback they'd need to check it regularly, which seems unlikely since the 
feedback option has only ever been used a couple of times. It's really more 
useful as a mechanism for people to communicate feedback to other potential 

For most things it's probably better to post on this forum. Even if 
someone's email address has changed or if individual contributors have moved 
away from the community you may well find someone who can answer your 
question here. If there are exceptional circumstances then I may be able to 
establish contact with specific individuals.

Chris B.
