Normally on a forum there is a way to private message another member, or a profile that has their email. I can't seem to find anything like that here.
So how do you contact another hubber here if you want to ask them something?
Hey bill, simply visit their profile and select "Contact [USERNAME HERE]" and they will receive your question via email providing they have enabled this feature
Hope this helps.
When you're on your own profile page logged on you can't see your own contact button... If you were to go to my profile page or view one of my hubs you would notice a contact katiem2 button below my profile picture along with the follow button click the contact button to contact that person via email.
Note if your not logged in you can search your profile name and check out your own profile to see your contact button that way...
Wow Bill didn't we have a contact button on our profile page. I don't know whether it is because I just got out of bed, have rubbed my eyes twice, but I am certain mine is gone on my page.
Very good question.
I don't see any contact button, at least not on the hubbers I want to contact. I do see a "ask so-and-so a question, but that is the public question button. Strange.
Yes apparently the hubber can choose whether to be contacted or not by allowing the button on their page.
I am unsure how you would go about it if it is not there.
Best luck I am off to have a feed, need some morning energy lol.
Morning!!! It's 6:10 PM here, you must be on the other side of the big pond. I'll figure out a way to contact them, thanks and enjoy your morning meal.
Upper line in the block with "ask..". Providing hubber in question wants to be contacted - one can disable it on profile settings
Ohhh ok, I see now. You have to enable the contact link. So hubbers that have none have decided to not let others contact them, bummer.
Ok then, move along, nothing to see here folks,,,,
I have "Allow others to contact you" checked, but the option is not on my profile.
Contacting thyself through hubpages does not make much sense, so it is not there
Whaddya mean? I talk to myself all the time..
Yeah, that does make sense. I never noticed that before.
I want a button to let me contact myself!
How else am I gonna know if I'm OK or not.
Some people in other forums have suggested as one way to contact another Hubber, that you post a comment to one of their Hubs, since so many of us have set our preferences to approve or deny comments. If you post a comment to the effect that you would be interested in additional conversations with them, they could let you know how to do so, but then deny the comment so that it doesn't appear where others can see it.
Of course, there's always the danger that they might approve the comment, when you didn't really mean for them to. So, if you want to try doing this, you need to come up with a comment that is both obscure and specific at the same time. Or you could just ask outright - in a comment - "How may I contact you for further information or discussion about this?"
Thanks, but I was thinking of just leaving a fan mail post. That way they will get it but it only shows on their profile. So they can delete it later. Good suggestion however.
But fan mail does show for anyone to see. I just went to your profile page and saw three fan mail entries. If I had gone to other followers, I could have seen what they wrote too.
Maybe you should just respect their wishes and not contact them.
Many hubbers remove their contact button because they get too many people spamming them.
You can deny fan mail when you receive it, not sure about deleting it afterwards though, I am sure there is a way, just never tired it though!
*Edit* ust realised someone had answed this!

It would be delightful if there was an easier way to contact some of the Hubbers. I have not done that often, since transferring from Squidoo, however - each time I wished to, I had to remember how to do it. When I am on my profile page, and someone shows up who I am following, the message in blue...

This is not so much for discussion, rather, I need an immediate help from any experienced Hubbers. I am a new member and have just posted my first Hub. I am ready to share with friends, but there is no Follow button on my profile page. Instead I see Edit Profile where Follow button should be. I...

Is there anything you don't you like about the new hubpages profile pages?I believe changing over is irreversible and ultimately inevitable for all hubbers but for all those who find change difficult :-) it would be good to hear of any negative observations regarding the new profile pages that you...

Do you like the suggested hubbers feature on the new Profile page?I think it is a great idea but think it would be nice if we could pick the suggested hubbers. I know it is a great feature and can introduce us to hubbers we don't know so I was wondering what others think.

I know that you can choose to display your idle hubs on your profile page, but I don't, because I don't want Google to see them at all and get confused by all those "do not follow." What this means is that my idle hubs are not available for anyone to see, and I have to actively...
