Well I see most of you DL members aint quite used to visitor messaging. A very good example is NeonNick who registered on my forum a few days ago. When Yamoto and I dropped VMs to him, he replied to these messages on his own profile instead of posting them on others profiles. Because of this, I did not even recognize that he had replied to my last message until I checked out his profile again early this morning, sorry about that Neonnick. XD

So, I've looked through quite a lot of your profiles and seems that DL members are indeed not interested in VMs at all. Is this because of the popularity of Xat Chat? Honestly I'd still recommend you guys and gals to use VMs more frequently in case you cannot get online at the same time as your friends. ^^ Just a suggestion, ignore me if you aint interested. ^^

My forum actually has implemented a 'Guest Lounge' where guests can post, non-spammish topics before they decide to join, to see if they enjoy the community.

I don't think people get e-mail notifications about visitor messages....and PMing is just easier once you hit the post limit.

If it's important, I get a PM.

If it's just a random 'hey whats up' it's usually a visitor message.

I see what you mean, Clover. Usually people use Visitor Messages a lot more often on VB forums, since its quite convenient to click on the 'view conversation' button and drop a message on other people's profile. I think Visitor Messages serve as an approach for chit-chat among members who do not get online at the same time. If used properly, Visitor Messages will help a lot with interactions and communications among members. Still, its totally up for you guys and gals to decide whats the best choice to make. Xatchat is fine, I like it too. ^^

Yeah, we don't have a 'view conversation' button o3o;

but there is a single button you can click below a persons avatar to send a PM...which again, is why I think it's the more popular choice.

and also most people don't notice the VM tab either... you click on someone's profile and its the tab to the left but most people click on the tabs to the right...

I see, sounds like it is sorta because of the forum software you are using here that limits the usage of Visitor Messages. XD

I think this is exactly the reason why. ^^

Well the reason why Mysidians use VMs is that they are indeed more convenient and easier to use compared to PMs. For DL, I dont see such an advantage of using VMs, which is probably why members do not use them much here.
