Warmshowers in France

We have just traveled through Brittany and the Atlantic coast of France. We contacted 4 hosts by email and did not get any replies. Even though these were at short notice we would have expected some responses..
One conclusion we have come to is that hosts are not redirecting requests to their inbox. And not checking warmshowers site for requests. This means we have missed the opportunity to stay with local people and learning more about touring in the region..
If we are right in this assumption could WS redirect requests to hosts nominated emails? And ask hosts to update their status. Mobile phones numbers would also be useful.

E-mail/phone number

As far as I know, requests through the WS-site are redirected to the host's e-mail. Maybe you were unlucky and contacted inactive members?
And I don't think it would be good to display phone numbers on profiles. This is something your host should send you in a private message.
