I occasionally turn on my messaging. Yes, I know it can be inconvenient, but too many people refuse to use the EDIT feature correctly. If it goes in a designated field, put it there. If you screw it up, go back to your list of edits, delete it and do it again. Memorial edits and transfer requests do not belong in the messaging system. If you need to contact me about something more general than a specific memorial, just click on any memorial and send it as you would any 'other' edit.
For the time being, edits will be allowed to process automatically in most cases. Those requiring manager action will be reviewed and handled as needed every few weeks.
I have finally resorted to turning off my messages due to misuse. Anything pertaining to a specific memorial that I manage needs to come through the edit tab on THAT memorial. If you have a more general question, you can use the edit tab on ANY memorial I manage but you need to include a link to what you are talking about. If I can't make heads or tails out of it, I am moving on to the next one.
Due to recent policy changes, I will no longer be doing any additional research beyond submitting basic memorials and vetting edits.
