Suggestion: Increase the maximum number of messages in the PM box.

Question: When I get a profile visitor message, I get a notification. Do they get notified when I reply? Do I have to reply in a specific way? (Do I have to click the "view conversation" link first, and reply on the page that appears?)

Something that annoys me: I tried to delete some profile visitor messages, but the messages don't disappear. All that happens is that the text in them get replaced by "This message has been deleted by Fredrik".

Question: Is there something I can do about that annoying thing. Can I delete them for real? If not, I'd rather restore them to the way they were. There's no point of having a delete feature if all it does is replace the body of the message with "this message has been deleted by..."

Suggestion: If there's nothing I can do about those profile visitor messages, then I suggest that the feature that allows us to "delete" such messages be improved or removed.

Hi fredrik, if you would like me to remove those deleted visitor posts, pm me and I will do it. Mentors can clean that stuff out of your message page.

You are supposed to reply on their visitor message wall which will give them a notification. Like the old facebook when someone would write on your wall, you would in turn right on theirs, and not your own because that is just cheeky.

That will work.

And let me know if you want your page cleaned up.

Also, anyone else that wants a cleanup of deleted messages, just let me know.

Thanks for the replies, and yes, if you could remove the messages I tried to delete, I would appreciate it.
