Default Visitor Messages under Public Profile?

I went to my Public Profile, and noticed there were some "Visitor Messages" that had been posted there some time ago. I had not received any notification of them, and I don't go to my own Public Profile very often, so I was not able to answer them in a timely manner. Why are these messages there instead of in my Private Messages InBox? TIA. LM

This is separate from a PM. That is the choice made by the person who sent the message. IT's a little confusing and I too have had messages sit there without my knowing it. I've gotten into the habit now of checking my profile once a week or so.

If you click on your name and get the drop down menu you'll see an option to pm but if someone is on your profile they can choose to send you the message another way (let me go see what that's named)

Ok if I'm on your profile on the click down menu under send a message it's called visitor message. Not sure if there isa way to turn on notifications tho.

Hi there!!

Those messages are different from PMs because they allow unregistered guests to leave you a message. PMs can only be sent by registered members of the site.

It is frustrating that you don't get notified. I have a question in about it, but there's not a setting that I can find to have notifications sent.

You can turn it off. I turned mine off because people were leaving me messages there about swap issues.

ETA: It is under Edit Options. You can uncheck the box that says Enable Visitor Messaging.

Thank you for the help everyone. I went in and disable it, since SCSer's can reach me both via PM and email, and I get notified when they do in those places. LM
