Unapproved Visitor Messages?

Nevermind, I think I figured it out, the reason the message isn't showing up is because it hasn't been approved by a moderator, hence the "unapproved", duh.

We (moderators) have no way of seeing moderated messages on a members profile.

I checked into the message you received from Poncho....seems they are a new member and they may have sent the message before they had been approved by posting on the main forum (these moderated posts we do see). Should be viewable now.

If you recieve any more like this or a questionable message, please report just as you would report a post on the main forum using the "report post" button.

EDIT: I stand corrected.....moderators can pull a report of moderated messages. Must have occurred on an software update at some point. I will add it to my "moderation to do" list.

I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it!

know how to clear it.

I have no idea how or if I should do anything with unapproved visitor messages.

The message from Poncho is gone now, and the notification messages is now clear. So I'm good. Thank you.

The message seems innocuous enough. Looks like PonchoP might have used a profile visitor message rather than a Private Message [PM] in trying to communicate with you.

Using the "View Conversation" link on the visitor post list for that particular post displays the visitor post with a moderation action pull down.

Hmmm... That's a fancy way of saying:

"Visit sirwm profile > Visitor Messages > View Conversation > Check Select "checkbox" on right edge of post > Moderation > pull-down "Approve Message" > GO"

Done. You should be able to view the visitor message now.

Yes. That would be true; since ponchoP had not yet accumulated enough posts for his membership status to be promoted, his visitor post remained in the moderation queue. Thus, it required a moderator to approve the visitor post.

I was not very clear--I did perform that action of approving the visitor post, so you should have been able to read it.

Again, it was an innocuous post that was probably intended as a Private Message [PM], so deleting it was almost certainly the correct thing.

Sorry I was not more clear in stating that I had approved the visitor post.

Hope that helped.
