    Similar to 'rival whom must not be named' can we have a conversations feature whereby we can see the posts that user X has posted on user Y's wall and vice versa?

    Yeah and it says "View Wall-to-Wall", vB had a similar feature called View Conversations under a url converse.php?u1=xx&u2=yy

    It would be cool, although not essential. :)

    It's not essential but it helps keep track of a person's conversation to another user without having to go back-and-forth between pages.

    Not essential but would be pretty cool. Although, since comments were implemented here and on Facebook...it's become less needed since people tend to just leave a comment and have a conversation there rather than going back and forth from profile to profile.

    Yeah, comments are used more often for this purpose than doing the Wall-to-wall thing. :)

    Sorry but I'm not hip on this suggestion. I couldn't care less what user x is saying to user y. Why would I want that posted in my profile? I don't like it on FB either.
    My only interest is what they have to say to me. That's what I want on my profile.

    Some people just like to spy on other people's conversations. :D

    Profile conversations are a huge hit on one of my forums... So I'd definitely like this too. Kinda gotten used to it now... lol

    I say leave the weird Facebook features to Facebook (and vB) ;)

    The difference between XF and other forums is that you can comment on wall posts (just like Facebook). This is much better, IMO, as it leaves out the whole going back-and-forth to each member's wall.

    I much prefer the way things are setup here/Facebook than with vB.

    vBulletin's visitor messages also use this feature, it's not facebook-exclusive ;)

    Since when can you comment on wall posts in vBulletin? Or am I missing something here... :confused:

    Yup, over at my site users (including me) like to interact via visitor messages.

    vBulletin's visitor messages.. work similar as wall posts.
