But as NM I couldn't ask the DAM because he ignores me. My AM had no
idea what the DAM was waiting for so no help there. The webpage didn't
show anything.

Where else was I supposed to go looking?

Whats wrong with noting on the webpages if the applicant is missing?
Why should the sponsor try to contact him again and waste a month
waiting for a reply thats not going to come? (e.g. when the applicant
has been pinged already)

In most cases proper notes are added by the AM or by the
Frontdesk. They are doing a pretty good job there. In cases they
forget I think its not bad if someone notices and inquires.
