Status Profile Field -- NEW [#permalink] New post 15 Sep 2010, 07:07
Hi all!

Today we've added a new profile field named "Status". You can use this field to quickly inform all members about what's going on with you. For example, BB is traveling at the moment (at the time this post was written), so he put a short message "Out of the Office - traveling through Fri" in his "Status" profile field.

In order to change your "Status" field info, you will have to go to this page (or navigate to UCP -> Profile) and update the "Status" profile field. You can find it right below the Birthday field:

Don't forget to click "Submit" in the bottom of the page for the changes to take effect :).

Your profile next to your posts in the forum will be updated according to the changes. For me it looked like this:

Attachment:
status_profile2.png

Please note that you can use 3 BBcodes (tags) in your "Status" field:

Code:
[b]some text in bold[/b]

some text in bold

Code:
[i]some text in italics[/i]

some text in italics

Code:
[color=red]some red text[/color]

some red text

You can use all 3 tags at the same time as I did in my example. Inside the color tag, you can use either different color names (red, green, blue, yellow) or HTML notation colors (#ff0000, #00ff00, #0000ff).

One more thing - please don't post URLs in the Status field (spammers tried to do that). Thank you!

I hope you find this new profile field helpful :).

this looks cool, but I'm not quite sure how useful it is other than a way to express themselves (or for more popular members, tell people that they're not around)? Maybe that's the point?

Just thinking outloud here. :)

It is pretty open - fully up to you. I am just like you - I put my Out of Office message in there when I travel for work but others seem to be using it more like a "facebook status"....
