This thread is of no use now, take it down if it doesn't affect my profile.
seems to me @ArnavPawarAA is very worried about his profile....
May be that explains the high number of bad advices he is posting... Boosting post count, whatever the value?

to the thread question, if you know the handle  of someone -- say ArnavPawarAA -- and want to send a PM, just google

arduino forum "ArnavPawarAA" site:forum.arduino.cc

or typing that person's handle in the magnifier at the top of the forum

and you'll find some of that person's posts. Then it's just a matter of clicking the nickname of that member and hit "send PM"

@ArnavPawarAA

If you are found offering bad advice via PM's you will be dealt with.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.

I thought that my profile would be affected if this thread gets removed. But this won't happen. And I don't want to boost my post count as I already have posts above 100.

And please would you mind referring me what bad advises I posted?

I don't want to send bad advises or troll people on this forum. I had an idea about the website, and I posted it. Then I realised that this feature is not safe for everyone here. So I am taking back my idea now.

etc ad nauseum

I've seen comments such as
Per, allow moderation rules to ban a user which permanently gives wrong advice?
Do you understand what "non-blocking" means?
(You may wish to take a closer look at UKHeliBob's code - you may learn something)

Just please stop the knee-jerk "I've got this" posts
Oh great 

Now you have made a nonsense of any subsequent comments

Please stop digging a deeper and deeper hole
It's in the ESP32 examples.
Probably the ESP8266 too.
I'm unimpressed by @ArnavPawarAA's negativity.
"I'm a noob, and I can't do it, therefore it can't be done" isn't a sensible approach to advice.
Uno WiFi doesn't work like that. so this another wrong advice from you.
it has a programmer on-board
NO!

How many more times do you need to be told?

Do NOT post pictures of text, just post all the text.
There is zero chance about that, it's not even relevant if you read the question:  It's not about showing line numbers or not, or lines missing in display... it is about adding those extra formatting stars to beautify the code (and which will disappear at the next ctrl -T...)

Asking someone to perform modifications without expressing that you you have no clue if that will work or not and is the first random idea you got might mislead generations of beginners finding out your post.

So If you don't know, don't post in such an Affirmative way (even your text above is affirmative that it can be the problem...). it's OK to explore ideas, forum is about sharing, but make it clear Then it's just half baked guesswork.
or after a while members just decided to be smiling at your comments such as
Sorry, that code should be an unsigned long.

But delay() blocks the processes and millis() used like that doesn't block the background processes running in the Arduino.

Pert in his great wisdom gave you a tip, may be you should think about it
I'll suggest you try something I found very helpful when I first started using this forum. I was new to Arduino, and so not ready to start providing assistance here. What I did was to play a game where I would read a forum thread and then make a private guess as to what the correct answer was, then subscribe to the thread and watch to see whether my guess was correct. In fact, I still play that game here with the threads I'm interested in, but not knowledgeable enough about to participate in.
I'm all for free speech so as I said before, when you don't know, either don't answer, or if you feel inclined to throw in your view, please do it in a way where it's clear you are offering a path to explore but don't make it sound like a fact or general truth when it's not the case, not something you've experienced or tested. That damages the forum's recommendation and value for generations to come.

@ArnavPawarAA

You cannot UN-RING A bell...

Per, myself and others have made some suggestions about standing back until your skills match the topics in question.

Please use the opportunity to take in that advice.

I am LOCKING this post as I think enough has been said on the matter.

It may not be the answer you were looking for but its the one I am giving based on either experience, educated guess, google (who would have thunk it ! ) or the fact that you gave nothing to go with in the first place so I used my wonky crystal ball.
