Lightbulb Visitor Messaging

Most versions of Vbulletin have this automatically so I'm suprised it's not here.. visitor messaging is a function that allows messages from any user on any profile.. who wants this?

We did have it. But it was deleted I think for a reason I can't remember. Ant or Steph will explain all.

As Andy said, you abuse it you lose it. Some people abused it and we all lost it. I find that as being unfair to the members who did NOTHING to lose it. I honestly think we should bring it back. We have enough moderators to monitor what is posted and what isn't, so it wouldn't hurt to bring them back.

Yeah I'm all for the idea really. I doubt the seniors will want to discuss all that again.

There was widespread misuse. It was impossible to control. That's almost guaranteed to occur again.

I assume we could try it again, but idk.

What Adam said is a big role I think.

It's really hard to control or moderate visitor messages at all, because profiles aren't visited as often as posts or blogs or social groups. Really the only people making sure that the comments aren't inappropriate are the user hosting the comments, and the commenter, which makes it hard to find out when somethings going wrong, and when users are potentially endangering themselves or other users.

Maybe special moderators for profiles would be good?

I see.. hmm. Well there's alot to be taken into consideration.
I think it's simply a case that the staff must be strict on users with profile comments.

i think that they should be granted after a certain post count is reached and should be able to be turned on or off by the user

Something like that could work. But it should be at a reasonable post count, say 1,500.

How about more like 500 posts? I think by the time someone has 500 posts, if they haven't been banned, we can trust they won't be leaving inappropriate visitor messages.

I was just about to edit my previous post to lower the count. I'm sure that by 500 posts, a user will have learned the rules and not post anything inappropriate as you said Adam. It would be nice to see these brought back.

i was thinking 500 posts earns it
cos that leaves just over 150 profiles to be checked and that isnt such a demanding task
they should be able to be disabled by the user too
