Status box??
« on: January 03, 2015, 05:58:06 AM »
So I was thinking, maybe we should have like a status box explaining what we are doing. (in meantime I will make my pretend one in signature). But it would be something like this

Status: Writing
Status: Drawing
Status: (insert note here)

I know it sounds weird and we have "Who's Online" but this could describe what you might be doing when not on the forums (doesn't need to be overly detailed because we don't need to know every second of your life). But this could show some people if you might be working on something new or busy at the moment (maybe vacation/etc)

I do believe this was suggested quite a few times  :hmm: But since everyone has their own art thread or writing thread, which most of the time is in their signiture link anyways, it seems a bit pointless. Personally I wouldn't mind it though  :thumbsup:

Hmmm, it might be good to have a thing saying if you're a writer or artist (or both O.o) on your posts, because the only way to tell at the moment is to look through someone's posts until they say :3

You could use your Sig. or the Title thing that goes above your profile pic maybe? I used to use it to show what I was currently watching :P

I know what you mean, it tells people what is your work essentially, but like Ginger said, most just have it in their Signature.

I guess I should better clarify what I meant.  With the status box I meant what we were doing outside of MR.  So you could put a few words down like "School, drawing, writing, sleeping, vacation, etc"

There is a option called " Personal Text " under profile. You can use that to update status.
