Very decent of you to consider such attribution. Some of the pirates I have known would merely steal all the ideas they can and then publish them as their own. Arrrgh!
Most user profiles include an email address. To find a user's profile, search for a post by that user, then notice the little
below the title of the post (upper left hand corner). Click on the
part and you'll see the user's profile, in the left side of which you may note a link for email and/or another link for "private messages" through the Forum's own messaging system.
