Yes, nudging using the "other" option is fine, though agents can turn off the "other" option if they don't want them, so you may not see it in every case.

@Hols95 there are options to send a general message, notify of an offer of rep, and withdrawing your query within the send a message menu, so nudging with the general message should be fine! that's what I do, anyway haha

QM query 3/24/22
Hoping I'm in a maybe pile!

Thinking of nudging, but how do you do that with QueryManager? I feel weird about using the Send a Message, which seems like it's reserved for if you have an agent offer or want to withdraw your query.
