Status updates are an interesting feature that we've dabbled with here in the past. It's not necessarily content you'd post in the forum, save for maybe the Good Morning Thread, but it's a way to check with members of the community on your status.

Like Twitter, you have 140 characters. So help me give it a go. Post your status today.

To help spur activity, I'm taking over the sidebar throughout the forum today. This is only temporary to help make folks aware of this new, yet old feature.

Like it, hate it. Unsure. Feedback as always is welcome.

I like the idea but not the implementation, if I am honest. Since I have a 15" screen, the browser page is small enough, and now with the status update tab, even the threads are like half of the page and very small. It would have been better if the Status Updates bar was, perhaps, expandable or something like the Notifications bar in Mountain Lion, if you know what I mean? As in it doesn't have to be visible at all times, but can be by the click of a button that would expand and then contract. Just a suggestion.

Wow.. I actually forgot how to update my status. Any help? :D

EDIT: Just checked this but apparently I don't have that status box that is mentioned. I am using Chrome on Mac.

Chris,

I am Pacific std time but my updates seem to show Eastern std time. Do all status updates log in as Eastern std time? Disregard I should have checked the status post. The time was corrected.

Thanks
