Under "My Friends" on the Forum home page it tells me to 'set a status'...

How does one actually do this ? I can't find any relevant help anywhere on the forum or am I becoming myopic ?

Ron - such as what exactly ? Do I just make something up, or, are there 'standard' status's (stati ?). Where else does it appear on the forum once set ?

Confused of Wiltshire...!

If there's a Moderator around, the posts are now repeating whilst the 'post counter' does not seem to be incrementing

Even more confused of Wiltshire.....(sorry to be a pain everyone !)

Just change mine from 'set a status' to 'Itch, then scratch build.'

Just click on and type.

Never had occasion to set a status, TBH, but I've just tried it out and I'm now shown as 'Chilled'. Having said that, as far as I am aware, only I can see that - unless anyone can tell me otherwise!teeth 2

I don't think I've ever seen a member "On Line" notification on this forum, but, will pay more attention in future !

We live and learn it seems....

Can someone give me a clue as to where to look to see a a person's status?

I don't see anyone's status - do I need to set one myself in order to see other peoples status?

hello dickw,i think how it works is on your hompage for the forum you can send a friend a request and if they accept it you will have their name in your friends box.when you log on to the forum,you'll see the grey button to the left of their name lit up green if they are logged in to the site also....try it,send me a friend request i'll accept it and when i'm on the forum,you'll see my green light-lit up...as for your staus box below your name,just put anything in it,i don't think its of any importance etc....

Thanks for that Ken, now I know why I don't see "status" - I don't have any friends smiley.

Nothing personal against the members of this forum - it's just that I try not to get involved with that sort of "social media process" if I can avoid it.

Thanks again for the info.

Dick

Thanks ED, I'd tried that with a couple of posters and neither had a public profile, so no show!

It works for you, I see!....thumbs up

All very mysterious....status, profiles, public, friends, clicking etc etc. Tutorial anyone ? (I'm not volunteering by the way !).

Thanks to all the contributors so far...

Dave (for testing purposes 'status' = "Improver Mark 1" sadly, no 'friends' as yet)

Have a browse along the maroon top row of the page, Dave. Under Settings you can add a bit about yourself in 'My Profile'. The 'Friends' button will give you a chance to send a request to anyone you know on the forum - it will just show them in a panel on your page and you can see if they're online and gives you a shortcut to messaging them.

The hi-tech here knows no bounds......teeth 2

I was curious about set your status when I joined. But like anything that gives us a constant reminder that it's there (like tooth ache) I decided to copy & paste my Youtube channel URL in there, however, you can't hot link it only copy & paste to get to my channel.sad
