You’re allowed 2 “lifeline” responses per week.

Otherwise you must skip the question.

You write to the person who may know the answer and give them the link and ask them to go to the public question if they have a response. If the question is private then the knowledgable one answers back to you and you forward the answer.
That is correct in the terra firma world so I think the watery world could do so too.

You can always answer with “Someone I know says…”

Man, this is pretty rad!
