Hello I have a masternode with masternode.me and I upgraded the collateral wallet to 16 many days ago but the masternode is still 15. Do I need to run some command to upgrade it too?

If masternode.me is hosting your masternode then the upgrade needs to be done there. You don't need to sign anything or take further action from your end (although you should really be using a hardware wallet, particularly since you just announced to everyone that you are running a software wallet for masternode collateral).

I suggest email to try and contact moocowmoo.

Thank you I will try to contact him. Does anyone else use masternode.me? Are all of those masternodes still 15? Should I change to a different one?
Which hardware wallet should I get?

moocowmoo has been difficult to reach for some time now, and I'm not sure about the upgrade status of the nodes under his management. I would recommend looking into other masternode hosting service: https://docs.dash.org/en/stable/masternodes/hosting.html

For hardware wallets, Trezor and Ledger are both well supported. You should be able to sign a message with your owner key to nominate a new operator for the masternode, or generate new keys using DMT: https://github.com/Bertrand256/dash-masternode-tool

I think Trezor and Ledger both support DASH, it comes down to which you prefer.
I suggest you host your own masternode, I have guides on how to do that. If this is really not possible for you, allnodes is doing a good job of hosting dash masternodes these days.

Thank you I will let everyone here know if he emails me or if my node gets upgraded. I am sure there are many masternodes stuck at 15.

I think Ryan Taylor got moocowmoo attention previous time. Maybe he can help out ? It would also be in his interest to get those nodes on v0.16 as soon as possible.
I also wonder how many masternodes are still up and running through masternode.me ? Is that still a significant number of masternodes ?

I have a partial MN with Moocow and payments continue to come in but he has been unresponsive for years. Been trying for so long to get my dash back but he has never responded. Each payment I get just helps a little to repair the loss. Recouped 20% of the initial amount so far, seems like this update will kill that stream.. Not sure what happened to Moocow but this is the risk of using a 3rd party.

I too saw payments come in from a masternode share until 2 months ago. Maybe Moocow is just super AFK and will eventually process emails containing withdrawal requests or maybe he's gone for good.
