This is just a PSA to remind you that we use the email you have attached to your account to answer contact emails from you (unless you change it manually in the email field on the contact page), and sometimes to get in touch with you if there is a problem with a post or comment, so please make sure that it is a working address. You can change or update your email in your profile preferences under "Contact Preferences," as well as choose whether you want it to be visible to other users, and if you want Mefi mail forwarded to your email.

On our end, we only
use your email to contact you about site issues specific to you, or to respond to a contact form
query; member emails are never used for any other purpose, and never disclosed to anyone else.
Related to this, the contact form is the best, most efficient way for us to respond to site problems and requests since it comes to all of us, so someone can respond right away. Moderator schedules vary, but we answer every legitimate contact form mail from a member (barring occasional, rare oversights or special circumstances) right away. If you contact us via the contact form and don't hear back, check your spam folder to make sure that our response didn't go there. Responses come from the individual emails of the moderators who answer.
