Special:EmailUser is being removed from Wikia, most likely next Wednesday. Seeing as we don't use Special:Chat or the Message Wall, there's sadly no longer a way to communicate confidentially with another user through Wikia. The following is a quote from a Wikia staff member:
To be honest, yes, we are removing EmailUser. Its use is very, very low and the number of bugs with the implementation we have installed is high. With private messaging on Chat and Message Wall making it easier to contact users on-wiki, we have decided it is best long-term to remove this extension from our wikis. I understand this may upset some power users, but long-term it doesn't fit into our email system, our user communication plans, or our bug-fixing rotation. It's been abused in the past and it's only linked on Monobook. Best to remove it now.
I guess this leaves IRC as the only method for confidential communication. 1358(Talk) 17:11, February 19, 2014 (UTC)
Wish they had at least informed us in an official statement on our wiki. Atarumaster88(Talk page) 15:23, February 21, 2014 (UTC)
