    Private message them. They can't PM you because they need to make at least 25 posts before they can do that but you can message them and they can reply to you.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    Hi @Caleb1988 and welcome to the community.
    Ordinarily journalists would introduce themselves through our Press Team. Just to ensure the safety of our members, would you mind emailing our community inbox via community@scope.org.uk with some information so that we're able to verify your credentials?

    Until then I've removed your email address, but will be happy to replace it just as soon as we've spoken to you.
