Not Supported Template Edits  

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.

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