If I want to directly contact a user, instead of just commenting on a post of his, is there a way a can do that?

This could be useful, for instance, in providing guidance to a new user.

    As a side note, if you would like to provide guidance for a new users, it should be left as a comment so everyone benefits from the advice. Oct 28, 2010 at 16:41

This is a repeatedly declined feature request on the Stack Exchange Network.


You can maybe contact this user by chat using @username. You can find more details on that answer.
