How do I send private messages to another user on the website? More specifically, how can I send private messages to a moderator on the website?

    $\begingroup$ A relevant response to your first more general question can be found in this post. Regarding your more specific second question, I have seen people successfully get the attention of a moderator through tactful effort in the main chat room, but that is certainly not private. $\endgroup$ Commented Dec 7, 2013 at 3:48
  • $\begingroup$ To expand on J.W.Perry's suggestion, now there exists also a chatroom created specifically for issues needing moderator's attention, see here. It is called Math Mods' Office. $\endgroup$ Commented Sep 20, 2015 at 12:39

If you want to contact a specific moderator: check their profile. Some moderators provide their email address in the profile, and indicate it may be used for moderation-related inquiries. If they don't, then this is not an option.

If you want to contact some moderator, you can use a free-form flag on any relevant post (or, if no such post exists, on your own post). An alternative is the moderators chatroom for maths.SE.

SE does not provide any private messaging system for contacting non-moderators.
