Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Any way to send a personal message to another user?

I recently became a bit more active on Stack Overflow and now have a few questions which I couldn't find in the FAQ:

  • Can I see who upvoted an answer or comment of mine?

  • Can I send a message to a user from his profile?

  • Where should I ask these kind of questions? ;)

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

You may want to consider more descriptive titles to your questions, considering meta.stackoverflow is all about questions about stackoverflow. =) – J. Steen Jan 9 '13 at 10:08
agreed ... wasn't that clearheaded when posting this :) – Hrqls Jan 9 '13 at 12:10
It's generally not a good idea to lump multiple questions into a question post. Your questions have all been asked previously, but we can't close this as a duplicate of multiple questions. – Al E. Jan 9 '13 at 14:37
@AlEverett: if we collaborate we can; half of us close as dupe of one, the other close it as a dupe of another. :-) – Martijn Pieters Jan 9 '13 at 15:41
Also possible duplicate of Is there a way to see who voted on your posts? – Martijn Pieters Jan 9 '13 at 15:43
this made me smile :) you need to collaborate to close a question? ;) .. makes me feel important :) .... i will just delete this question, that's probably the best way :) – Hrqls Jan 10 '13 at 8:30
hmm i can not delete this because it already has an answer ... sorry : no garbage cleaning it seems ... – Hrqls Jan 12 '13 at 9:15

Just to add to the existing answer:

  1. No - explained here
  2. No - But some users list how to contact them through other means (via twitter, mail etc) in their profile description. That's all
  3. You posted here, which is the right place, but I think if you searched a bit, you may have got the answers without asking this question.

Searching... google is there – Krishnabhadra Jan 9 '13 at 8:12

This is the place to ask such meta questions, but you may want to search for previous posts on the subjects first. Specifically, look through the Stack Exchange FAQ post for commonly asked questions.

  • No, votes are anonymous, you cannot see who voted.
  • No, this is not a social network, you cannot send messages
