What is Create Status in the Forums?

Recommended Posts

Just looking around the Forum settings and options and I noticed something I haven't seen before - on the Create menu, your options are Topic and Status. I have started a few threads before, so I understand Create Topic, but what is Status?

Good question. I just created a Status Update, but I have no idea where the content went. I can't find it anywhere.

I just saw Hzoi's post on this of last August, but I still don't get it.

Hovering over your avatar, I clicked on Content, then Status Updates, then I typed an answer.

 

I still don't get the functionality.

Interesting. That could conceivably be useful if the status updates weren't buried so deep where no one will really see them...

Right.

 

The only way we would know someone posted a status update, would be for them post a comment in the general forums (defeating the purpose of this seemingly semi-private forum) or for us to stock others hovering over their avatars just to see if someone has a status update. Again, I don't understand its purpose.
