@Marye5 I finally was able to send you a message, hope that you got it. If you didn't here's my profile.
@Chasity2ku I have always agreed with this because there is you and several others that it would be nice to talk to on occasions without having to do such on the forum. It's not like we're going to be discussing the contests themselves or such, I would like to think that most of us know better by now. But even with that if we wanted to contact each other off-site, I'm not sure we'd be allowed to tell each other emails or anything else to be able to do such without going against SH rules the way it seems they are written. I have actually thought about posting a contact thread (and anyone interested would have the choice of sharing or not) in the forum for anyone interested which would just serve as a directory of profile links to the people that are open to receiving messages from fellow creatives for chat, idle talk, general advice, etc (No messages should be sent discussing specific contests or such -- just to remind everyone of the rules, just in case). That way if it's someone active on the forum you may have better of a chance being able to at least find someone with the way things are right now. It took me half hour just to try to track down Marye's profile. So yes, I can agree to how annoying and frustrating it is. And I'm hard to find right now because I haven't entered any recent contests both due to life in general as well as certain frustrations.
