    Hello Alisa!
    Can I ask... What is status? It does not seem to be what I thought it was... Which was perhaps some silly remark that appears next to your avatar. It seems likes its some sort of comment that goes somewhere... but I do not know to where it goes...

    Status seems to be a little blup that appears on the Forum Home page (New Profile Posts) or on the New Profile Posts page. It's also on your profile, or the mini profile that pops up when we click your name/avatar link.

    It's just a little way of saying ... Oh, I'm feeling extra blue today. Or I'm frisky as all get out and have decided to swim the English Channel ... even though I live in the United States and will have to swim across the Atlantic Ocean first.

    That last probably is a wee bit too long for the status field :wink:

    Oh... I get it... No... No, I don't... Wait... Hmm... Maybe... Yeah... Okay... Sort of... I think I'm having trouble trying to wrap my mind around how to express any idea, thought or scheme in under 140 characters.
    I don't think it's possible.
    How many characters is Twitter? Well, whatever, it's too few... That and it's called Twitter. Can't do that. I can't do any social media... Maybe because it's presented weirdly or that the main one is called Facebook and it's not made out of actual faces like the Necronomicon or old phone books used to be... But anyway, I think it was the 140 character limit that threw me.
    Well, in that case, I can probably leave my last status comment there infinitely. Well, maybe not past when the sun finally swells up after expending it's nuclear fuel and shrinks to a red dwarf... I suppose the forums might have changed by then.
    Okay... Thanks for the explanation.

    I think you DO have it McGyver. The "status" post is like a tweet, which only shows up in the New Profile Posts on the Forum's front page until a bunch of other folks "tweet" their own. I did one when I first joined, and now it's gone. I'm just not into recreating it over and over again, but it is interesting to see what others write. :)

    Since I never used twitter, never have texted and don't have a facebook wall (don't post on fb that much anyway -I mostly have it for family and close friends and following places like HW :)), I'd say I'm not a "post your status/current mood person.

    Alpha, you can always take a picture of yourself and use it as your avatar. Mine's a picture of me :p. Yes, the truth is out, I AM just a golden retriever puppy....

    You know Alisa, I always suspected, but never had the nerve to ask. ;)

    :) Yeah, and typing with big paws...NOT easy !!

    Neither is typing with little paws.

    You should see the messages I sent earlier tonight when Tsuki was graciously helping me type.

    Granted, she can't read, so that could be why nothing she typed was understandable.

    Tsuki??? You have a new baby????

    Yes, that's what she named her new kitty. :)

    I hadn't heard that there was a new kitty!!! Pictures, we want pictures (the Mugshot thread is a good place for it :))

    I'm so glad you guys decided to use Gravatar; it's nice to have a sense of cohesion across my accounts--and to spread the love for a certain Cardassian tailor. ;)

    76Yes. I have a new baby. I picked her up from the clinic Wed after she was spayed. She's a libra. (Birthdate is estimated as Octob54er`000000000000000 3, 2015 ... without the extra characters courtesy of Tsuki)

    I put up some pictures in the Anchorage, but will put some in Mugshots.

    Thanks for the guidance. I will add a picture when I find one I like. You know, where the hair is freshly done and all that goes with it.
