Is it allowable to use the "answers" section to ask an author if he has found a solution to his question (which was posted months ago but only received one reply) but hasn't posted it?

If not is there any other way to contact an author of a question?

Thank you!


Using the answers section for anything except answers is not looked upon favorably.

You may contact them by commenting on their post. Such a query is perfectly acceptable for a comment.

You must earn at least 50 reputation before you are allowed to comment on any posts except your own.

    Thanks for the quick reply! Sadly I haven't reached the reputation threshold for that yet so it looks like I'll need to find some questions that I know the answers to! – Kasheen Oct 10 '11 at 16:51
