Renaming "Visitors Messages" for "Wall"

Post by Guest on June 18th 2011, 7:37 pm

This may sound as a silly suggestion, but it may not if you, like me, have this feature enabled on your forum.

It'd be better if "Visitor Messages" were named "Wall" instead. Not just because a short name sounds better, but because, from the newbie's point of view, it'd be easier to know what they are. Also, if you care to look at Profile > Friends and Foes > Foes, you'll find out "Visitors Messages" has already been renamed to "Wall". A little incoherent, don't you think...?

While this is already possible with high levels of javascript, the result is not that good... pages are still titled "Visitors Messages", and your profile settings still use the that label.

You're more than welcome to post your views regarding this suggestion. Hope it gets accepted. Smile

Don't assume stuff on your own. I don't "want it to look more like Facebook" but make it easier for newbies to know what they are. If your forum was hosted on forumotion, you'd, like me, get people asking what Visitors Messages are.

Not only Facebook labels it as a wall. How about vBulletin? XenForo?

You say it can be done through coding. Sure, it can. Do you even know how? Can you change the page's title? Are you capable of changing a profile setting's description? Highly doubt it. Most people can't as they're not that good with javascript.

Besides, this wouldn't be an update but a tweak. It'd take 5 minutes to be done to anyone who has access to the language settings.
