Help Unavailable (chat or form submission)

I am unable to access any of the "help" options on the mint site. The live chat says it's open at 5AM pacific time, but at 9AM eastern time (6AM PST) it is saying they are closed and it rejects the connection.

Then I tried to submit two different problem issues to through the support form, but that appears to be broken too. It doesn't include a captcha entry when submitting the form (it is nowhere on the screen), so when I submit my problem it throws an error because of the missing captcha, but THEN along with the error, it shows the captcha input for the first time. I enter the captcha properly and submit my issue, and I get an error message in response saying my submission failed and that I should try later - and of course it deletes everything I typed.

Also, you can't include a screen shot when you send a support request, but you can add a screen shot here on the message board. That's a little strange.

So I can't use the chat support and I can't submit an actual support ticket. So here I am posting on the message boards. Maybe someone from MINT reads these?

People come to Mint for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
