Members usually missuse the visitor messages feature, if someone left them a message on their profile they by wrong reply to it in the same profile and not in the other member's. And then wouldn't count as a conversation and the other member won't be notificated that you replied to him. That's why I thought about a solution to hide the editor from your own profile so you don't post on your profile and be able to post on others with a very simple template edit.

In memberinfo_block_visitormessaging

Change the first line:

<if condition="$show['quickcomment'] AND $show['post_visitor_message']">

to


<if condition="$show['quickcomment'] AND $show['post_visitor_message'] AND $bbuserinfo[userid] != $userinfo[userid]">

There is an option in vBulletin that do this:
Usergroups-> Usergroup Manager-> Edit Usergroup-> Visitor Message Permissions-> Can Post Visitor Messages to Own Profile-> No

I just changed the phrase to read "Reply To Sender"-- makes more sense and it solved all the problems on my board.
