How do I contact a system administrator?

I've read the faq's and platform guidelines.

I posted a message that's been sent to moderation but I haven't been notified as why, the directions say to contact a system administrator if you think this is in error (I do), but, I can't message anyone, and there don't seem to be any directions on how to contact a system administrator.

Help. I'm sorry if I missed something obvious.

P.S. I keep trying to get verification emails sent, but they never arrive.

Hello
I published your question.
I don't really know why it was put in moderation (the plateform doesn't explicitly state the cause and we have to guess)

Regards,
Sylvain

Thanks :)

It would be good to know, anyhow, since there is supposed to be a process. Typically better not to discuss such things in public.

Hi Sylvain, my post got sent back to purgatory? Is there any chance a system could be created to say as to why? I'm not getting any notification about what I did wrong.

Sorry, I'd send this to the sysadmin if I knew how ;)

Like the rest of us, you are probably not getting any Notification emails.

It seems the email system for this forum has never worked since the forum was launched.

Indeed, we still have the email notifications issue. I'll ask our IT if they could make any progress on that topic. Sorry for the inconvenience (we also struggle with that internally!)

This has happened twice for me now. The first question, it maybe should stay in moderation; you would understand from the topic. The second question is suitable for public consumption.

I'm sorry, I don't understand what you're saying here. Are you talking to me about my questions?


I don't understand what you mean by "the first question". Are you saying my question should stay in moderation? What would I understand from the topic? What topic? What would I understand?

The directions say to contact an administrator if I disagree with it being in moderation. Yet, there's no way to contact an administrator.

So I again ask my question... How do I contact an Administrator?

This is a general question, as my topic made it out of moderation finally.

Hello

Me and @SonantAlpaca are the administrators.
As I explained above, even us are not informed of the reason why a post is put into moderation. Sometimes I suspect it's simply because the post contains links, sometimes I can't find any suitable reason...
Be patient, we review these on a regular basis and publish manually when we don't see any issue.

Regards,
Sylvain
