How to PM in warframe ? very simple just type:

Find Whether a player is online or not

In the past you could whisper to see if player is online without actually talking to him with this command: /w playername
But today to whisper in warframe is no longer working and you need to use as in private message (to add something after the username).

If someone is annoying you or from some reason or you want to ignore him
/i username
To toggle the command and stop ignoring him, type the same command again.

How to chat during a Mission

While you are in-game running a mission and want to chat with a fellow Tenno press “T” to open the chat window.
It will appear by default in window on the lower left side of your screen.
While the chat window is active you can not move your Warframe!
To return control of your Warframe press the enter key.

Warframe unstuck command

There are times during a mission that you’re stuck and can’t get out of this no matter what you do.
For this special purpose there is the /unstuck command that can get you out of this by re-position yourself when you get stuck.
Just be aware that you can only use this command once per mission so use it only as your last option.

/profile username: allows you to see the profile of any player by username (including yours)
