    Is that what it's called? The thing that appears under your name, age, gender and location on your little black profile card?

    Anyway, I would love to change this, yet it's only once in a blue moon that I can ever even find the spot to change it. It hides in your settings somewhere. Anyone know how to bribe it out?

    Yes, it's exactly the same thing as a Facebook status message. Unfortunately, it seems to have been disabled forum-wide, so you're stuck with what you plugged in the last time you actually used or filled it with a status.

    Would like it to be reinstated or allow us the option to have it cleared. :sigh:

    Ah, I see, thank you for the help. I guess that's why I never seem to be able to find it. :p

    Yeah, as I posted in another thread, my status says "I can't wait for March 20!" (Referring to the DVD release of The Muppets)

    Now it's more like "I can't wait for 2013!!!"

    This is now what, the third thread we have asking about our status messages?

    No more then the threads about people asking to change their user names.

    We'll be doing some testing on status messages this weekend. If possible, the likely result may be that all status messages are cleared but that seems to be a better option than not being able to edit them. The forum will need to be off-line for a little bit for this to happen though so we'll do this during off-peak hours over the weekend.

    Status messages should now be cleared for all members. Thank you all for bringing up this issue.

    I see that all status messages were just cleared moments ago. Thanks.

    EDIT: Oops, Phillip ziffeled me. :p

    I'm just curious but is there any reason why the ability to change your status message was removed to begin with?

    That explains the down time. Thanks for fixing the issue!

    The status message is tied with some other core components of the software of which we have some customizations. That is why it worked and then didn't. We'll turn it back on in the future if updates allow it to work as intended.
