I am trying to ask someone a question. I found them by searching for a book. I can't click on their name in order to pm them.  Any other way to get to them?????  I tried looking them up in the directory but they are not listed in there

Sounds like someone who doesn't have a profile. I think you'd need to complete the request and then use the PM button on that.

Folks have to option to 1) not have a profile and 2) not make their bookshelf public and 3) not list in the member directory.  If they have those settings, even finding a forum post won't get you to their bookshelf. 

Some folks aren't aware of the setting choices.  And some folks feel so strongly about the FIFO system that they choose it to be that way.  And I know of at least one member who has security concerns due to domestic violence.

So there is a chance that you cannot get there.  Even ordering the book might not get you to that member.
