Visitor messages (on profile) removed

We have chosen to remove the Visitor Messages function of the profile page for each user. We made this decision with the following in mind:

- A fair amount of Visitor Messages are simply spam, unwanted broker services, etc.
- Monitoring VMs is a pain for staff, if not reported by users
- Some users find the multiple systems confusing in nature.
- There is little real function in the VM system that the PMB or open forums don't already provide.

Thank you for understanding.

Great initiative .

I personally dint liked the VM thing , as mostly everywhere there were broker ad's , contact info's or usually direct queries by people . Many people seemed to be confused between visitor message and private message function . Now things will be easy

Hi, I am new to this forum and I don't have the PM functionality enabled. Can you please let me know how I can get this enabled, so I can chat with other members in private. Visitor message was the only other way, which has been disabled. Sorry if I sound daft but I don't know the rules yet.

I believe a post count of ten is required for that. Visitor Messages were not private at all, fyi.

This is a good move.Members have been misusing this facility.Private message facility is really good one.

It is a good idea to avoid being swamped by one time visitors to the forum. This is a sensible forum and returning visitors would be serious about their posts and try not to spam others.
