No "Message" Link When I Hover Over My Own Profile Pic.

I've noticed, at least for the last 2 months (maybe longer) that there is no "Message" link available when the little box pops up after hovering over my profile picture. It is still available when I hover over other members profile pics.
I assume it was removed because why would someone send a PM to themselves, but, for purposes of the VCC, it was helpful in creating a clickable PM link to place in your booth.
I have linked below to a post which might help explain more of what I'm talking about.

If it is at all possible to have this "Message" option under ones own profile pop-up put back, it would be greatly appreciated.

"Ignore User" has gone as well, which is a shame as I was hoping to ignore myself :)

 

Get your jokes in now.

I'll put a request in with the folks who provide the updates for this software.

By the way, even though the 'message' button has been removed as Deadone says, you can still create a PM link for your VCC booth. There is a work around. It's not as straightforward as his "How to create a PM link" instructions but it can still be done. Let's see if I can explain it somewhat coherently lol 

You have to know your own user number. Mine is 5158. I find that by going to my profile >> https://www.cgccomics.com/boards/profile/5158-jeffro/ Go to anyone's profile page. Their number is in the URL.

So, if I follow Deadone's instructions and hover over his avatar, right click and then choose copy link, to get his message link >> https://www.cgccomics.com/boards/messenger/compose/?to=12756 I see that his user number is 12756

I remove his number and replace it with mine (5158) and it creates a link to my messenger. >> https://www.cgccomics.com/boards/messenger/compose/?to=5158   I can then continue to follow his instructions and create the PM me link for my VCC booth.

That's awesome, Jeffro, thank you so much. (worship)
