Title: Subscriber Status Board ( merged )
Post by: Mike Bobbitt on July 25, 2007, 00:16:41
Some of you may be seeing an [update status] or [edit] link, while others may notice that some users (such as myself) now have a "status" below their name in posts.

This is a new feature that allows subscribers to quickly set a status, to let others know what they're up to. It's still in the early stages, so please bear with me!


Cheers
Mike

Mike,

Thanks again for the new feature. Although, with my own signature... when it comes to my profile, I have used quite a bit of 'quotes' of my own that I like to search for, that the 'status' feature I have been finding a hard time thinking of stuff to write there. Also, I'm pretty much here... there and everywhere in my days that knowing me I would have to change it several times, to keep up!

I've seen some pretty interesting messages in people's 'status' on posts, since you have implemented it, most of which have made me smile... keep up the good work out here.

~Rebecca

Edited to add: My status is now set to 'here, there and everywhere' as stated above. That status definately describes my days  8)

I know this is a silly question and I know Mike is gone for awhile, but I've tried to change my status and I don't know if it is working for me because I can not see my own status. In the space where my status should be, there is a link to "update status".

Just like Transformers, "More Than Meets the Eye", Although my profile does not reflect it, I am a subscriber in disguise.

Maybe your status is in disguise then too.  Because we can't see that you are a subscriber, there might be something behind the scenes that we can't see the status either.

Meh, its not a really important for me anyways, I can wait.

It's not like my status changes much from "Lazy Bum" anyways.  :blotto:

You should have an "edit" button by every post you make, and at the top. If not then I need to revisit things!

Ahhh...that's the software feature that allows you to edit your status, but only if people care what you're doing.
No use complaining to Mike; the software knows.   ;D

OK guys,

It wasn't working for me either until I figured out how to work it!!

Hit on the "Edit" button and scroll up to the top of your page. Type in what you want and then hit "enter."

That's what eventually worked for me.

Folks,

I just added a "recent status updates" box to the main page. It shows the last 10 statuses that subscribers have set, just to give the general populace an idea of what you're up to. ;)

Still needs some work, but it's a start.

How come I can't see anything on the main page called "Recent Status Updates" ??? Is it just me??

Look on the right side of the page, you may have to scroll over. It's right over photo of the moment, an under advertising. Hope it helps  ;)

Mike, just a suggestion on this.  Is there a way to put that status line on our profile page?  If we have had a status for awhile (ex. "is on leave"), it won't show up on the home page.  Yes, people can see it by looking at a recent post of ours.  But if they happened to be looking at our profile to send a PM, they would know then that maybe we would answer or not. (ex. I put in mine if I am working, so people might realize that they won't get a reply back to a PM since we can't send them from the DIN anymore!)

Good idea, I'll see what I can do about that.

It's not under your name on the left hand side of this screen either. Are you a subscriber?? The status thingy is only available to site-subscribers.

If so,

Go up top and click "edit", but in order to make your update "stay" hit "enter" after you've typed it in. Just type it ... and hit "enter" to see if that works for you.

Could have sworn I tried that, oh well it works now and loving it. I'm sure the novelty will wear off in a couple of days.

Thanks

Thanks Mike. Unfortunately, there's still an issue. I changed my status before I went on leave 2 weeks ago and can't clear it/change it at all now. The subscriber piece isn't applicable to me, as my subscription expired a while ago and I haven't renewed it yet....or was it a fluke that I could adjust my status at all then? :dunno:

It’s a bit of a flaw in the system. Only subscribers can change status, so if that status lapses you can’t change or clear it any more. I’m out at the moment but if you’d like I can wipe it when I get back.
