Hello !

Of course it is.

Tutorial is here.

In your case you need only to read first post.

Warning : Tutorial is outdated if you got for free your current domain name.

Do not send any private message to Leeloo, but send it to Sanket instead.

One issue with this is you require a certain amount of posts to PM, even to PM an admin, causing people who simply want to transfer domains to "SPAM" simply to be able to contact a staff member. In my opinion the way the support works around here is horrible and support should not be provided purely over a forum, you should definitely have a dedicated support section/tool. Is there any other way I can contact someone about transferring a domain without having to spam my way to the permissions to send a PM?

Well, you need to open a topic (better than posting in someone else topic Wink ) -> That makes you 1 post.
Someone will tell you what to do, and maybe you will thank that person for his answer. So you'll send a second post.

2 posts and you can use PM.
This security prevents users to use PM without posting anything for spamming or advertising purposes.
Members can be banned more effectively if they send a single post with their IP and i dont think its really a problem to send 2 posts for guys who really need.

ForumOtion is completely free and having a dedicated support tool would have a cost.

I know this is thread hijacking, but there are PLENTY of free and awesome support tools out there, even a 10$ Jira Installation would be all thats required! I'm not arguing with the fact against the 2 post for a PM (they could maybe remove that if you are PMing a Mod/Staff member), but they could atleast list a contact email SOMEWHERE. No where do they list one, not even in their whois record for their domain or their RIPE record for their hosting IP -.-
