No, the page is linked on registration if the user is unable to solve the captcha.

Observations and suggestions:
  1. When viewing the contact page as a guest, "Your email address" field should be below the "Your name" field, as that's how it usually is.
  2. It'd be better if we could only resize the message box vertically or at least give it a proportional max-width.
  3. We should have a mode to send the message as a private message instead of an e-mail. For v3.2 of course.
  4. It would be very useful to have a third mode to create a new thread - at a predefined forum - for each message. I can explain the why, if anyone wants to know.

I think 2 and 3 would be better as extension. The contact page should be as simple as possible.
And as it has been seen already, the ACP has too many options already.

I assume you meant 3 and 4, right?

There could simply be a dropdown to choose from 3 modes. E-mail, private message and forum post. See how this mod does it.

As per M.Gaetan89, this is the reason why extensions are being prioritized. The contact page, as it exists, solves a problem and is sufficient for probably 99% of forums. If you want a more niche implementation, then that's totally understandable: simply install an extension.
