Background: I promised to answer a question and asked the user to include a "reference" to my name - like . We used the Community contact feature. I believed I would get a notification in my content feed. I had received notifications before. The user is "Last seen: 2 dagar ago", but the content feed is empty.
Problem: Now I've discovered that I don't get notifications in my content feed and that I cannot "write" references in a question. The contact via the contact feature is broken.
Question: I have a full name and an eight digit user number. How can I send a message to the user or search for question from that user?

Searching contributor:"per isakson" https://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/answers/?search_origin=ans_browse&term=contributor%3A%22per+isakson%22 returns over 5400 results for me.
Deactivating the Community Contact feature does not prevent replies. If you still have the email message then clicking on the Reply button will send some tokens and give access to the contact form even if the user does not generally permit contact.
However, if you no longer have that email message with its magic reply button, and the user is not set to permit contact, then you will not be able to contact them unless they contact you first (or under some special circumstances that I'm not going to talk about in public.)

On this page, click "More" and then "Contributors"
On that page, the serch box is for "Search Contributors".
Type in "per isakson", or "Walter Roberson" or "Fangjun Jiang", all return one and only record.
I think that is the best way to find a user if you know the user's name.
