Replies To Visitor Messages

In response to a question one person made within a visitor message, I replied and it appeared just above his post in my visitor messages. However, when I just read another message there a moment ago, my response was no longer there.

That in itself doesn't bother me, because it seemed somewhat out of place anyway, but I was wondering how a person would know that a response was made at all, because when I checked his visitor messages, it wasn't there either?

Check in User CP under subscribed threads and see if it listed in subscriptions if you save them.
I keep about 2 weeks worth and then delete them.

Normal practice if someone leaves a visitor message on your profile, you would respond back to them with a visitor message on their profile. That is, as long as they have visitor messaging enabled in their User Cp options. Some may have them turned off for their own reasons. But for the most part, they have it enabled.

Some when they get a VM on their profile from someone, will leave a response on their own profile VM field. Which, IMO isn't a good way to do it, since the one that sent you the VM may never check or not think of checking back on your profile page for a response. And when a response is given back on their page, they should know about as quickly as they see the notification for it.

As to what happened with your VM's, without knowing who you were interacting back and forth with, I have no idea what happened to them. Unless you/and or the other person deleted them right after they were made? I'm sure you would know if you did that though.

I did that accidentally the other day......wasn't until the next day that I realized I had just typed my response above, instead of where the highlight is, like I should have. So then I replied properly.

It's probably the standard template. Don't worry, I've done that as well. I've tried replying to a VM, only to find that I've replied to the VM by VMing myself with my reply.

You need to either post the VM from the recipient's Profile page (new message / reply to message) or click on Reply to sender under the appropriate message on your Profile page (message reply only).

It gets better. I've also done something similar with PMs as well.
