Had to go looking once the site came back on-line.
Looks like in the member lists (?) when you PM or look at a User Profile it shows that you visited there(Cyber Stalkers Alert:icon_razz:) and can leave a Visitors Message, not sure if that will be the same as a PM or just a message that you were there. I think I will investigate further.

Looks like PM's can still be done in the Contact Info of the User Profile.

I sent a member online a couple of Visitor Messages, but I don't think they will alert like a PM. Although I have been wrong before.:shrug: We'll see.

Visitor messages and PMs both show up when you pull down Your Notifications at the upper right. Though I can't understand why anybody would bother with Visitor Messages, or for that matter spend much time at the member list where you apparently have the opportunity to send them.

And just to make everything clear, we did not know about any site maintenance and upgrades. I'm just inquisitive by nature :icon_biggrin: I just had to go poking around.

Further investigation shows that Visitors to your Profile can leave a Visitor's Message, but you will not receive a notification like you do when you receive a Private Message. When you do receive a PM the pull down menu will also show a notification of Visitor Messages as well, that you can then read.

I personally don't see the need for leaving a visitors message that might not be seen (ever) unless you are updating your User Profile or receive a PM.

So the moral of this story will be if you want to make sure a member gets your message Private Message them.

Cheers
