Is there a way to contact a registry set owner outside of commenting on their set?

The "contact user" function on the profile of the user I'm looking to contact is currently not available, so I was wondering if I was missing something or if there was another way.

Thanks!

    Maybe start a thread here with the set name included to ask if anyone knows the owner or if the owner could please contact you via PM. Anything past that might be a bit intrusive, there is obviously a reason the owner of the set has kept private, you might consider respecting that choice.

    When I was looking for a specific coin that was in a non-public registry set (even more restrictive than the situation you appear to be in) I specifically did not publicize the coin (in your case the coin or set) because I wanted to respect that level of privacy that the other person had requested. In my opinion, publicizing the coin or set can then appear or be felt as pressure from outside on the owner and I did not think that was proper.

    Yes, that's why I'm trying to find a way to do it without commenting. I think I have a lead, so I'm going to follow that, fingers crossed!

    Sometimes if people on registry sets don't want to be contacted,
    There is a reason.

    Have a nice day
