  • Visitor Messages

    I have another suggestion here.My oppinion is to create another section in the profiles of every member of this forum(like Feedback,Statistics,About me...)named Visitor Messages(or something like this) which contain messages from the members that visit your profile.

    That will be a nice way to communicate with your friends in this forum without sending a private message.

    This option could be used from anything starting with a nice welcome and ending with serios disscusions(that can be shown to the public) in the profile of each user.

    Any toughts?

    Do you mean something like 'the wall' in facebook? I don't really see what would be the benefit of something like that.. Then you'd have to check for pm's, for new posts, AND for new wallposts..

      Hy nehpets!I'm not a member of facebook so I don't know what do you mean.

      What I wanted to say is that any member can post a visitor message for a member that he visited.

      This thing doesn't really bring any benefits for the members but at least bring a little more communication for the friends from this forum...

      Also,when you have received a visitor message,you can be announced just like when you receive a private message.

      Moreover,I don't think is that hard to check the newest ads and posts since you last visit.

      Just my oppinion.

        Not keen on this idea, it could encourage midgets to post requests for invites and rep etc. We have enough problems with potential members making unsolicited friend requests (or I do). Nice idea but I can't see that working unless there was a way to lock it down so that only repped members could post a message.

                vBulletin does in fact have this feature, as I've seen it on almost every other forum that uses vB. Maybe it's a default feature and Dave had it removed it?

                    I think this would be a great idea as long as each user gets to decide if they want it on or off for there profiles.

                      This is actually a default feature of vbulletin. However we have disabled it as we do not see it as a feature that is beneficial to this site.

                      PMs and posts in main forums cover both areas very well.

                      Visitor messages only create confusion for new members and less knowledgeable members may expose sensitive data unintentionally. This then creates more work for the staff which i feel is unnecessary.
                      PM me at your own peril.
