Could we see "Message sent" on our "Visitors" page?

Messages and alerts sent through the site occasionally come through late (and sometimes - at least with KudoZ - not at all).

When I check the Visitors tab on my profile page I can see when a freelancer, outsourcer or end client has viewed my profile, CV, etc., and I find this to be a great feature.

Would it be possible to also see when someone uses the "Send message" feature on our profile page?

What do others think?

Best,
Jocelyne

It has been decided not to implement your suggestion due to privacy concerns Apr 20, 2010

Dear Jocelyne,

I just wanted to let you know that your suggestion has been reviewed, and it has been decided not to implement it due to privacy concerns.

At the moment, the identities of profile visitors are not shown specifically to protect their privacy. If it was shown when a visitor sends a message on the visitors tab, the profile owner would know who the visitor is, and the visitor's identity would basically be revealed.

In any case, messages sent to you through your profile should always be received on time. If at any moment you feel you have received a message with a delay, or have not received a message at all, please submit a support request and we will look into it.

Best regards,
Alejandro

Alright... Apr 21, 2010

Thank you for your reply, Alejandro, and sorry to hear that the feature cannot be implemented.

Just a quick thought: when we receive a message sent through our profiles, the sender's IP address appears in the email - and this is the same IP address seen on the visitor's page.

Presumably if someone is contacting us through our profile page, they are not concerned with privacy issues and about revealing their IP address; if they are, it's probably us who should be concerned!

Thanks anyway for taking the suggesting into consideration.

Best,
Jocelyne
