Is there a way to clear my "Current Status"? I'm done doing what I was doing, and I don't really have a current status that I need to broadcast to my group.

Well, you could just state that you dont have a status at all now! ;)

or that you are done with the work that you were doing and add a url of where it can be found by others in your Cyn.in site or elsewhere as your status. This will change your status and everyone wanting to check out the stuff that you were working on knows where to find it.

Thank you for the suggestions. They are good ways to deal with the inability to just "unset" status. Right now I have to tell users, "Don't type anything into the "What are you doing?" box unless you're ready either to have to keep up with keeping your status current or to look like a slacker because your "Current" status was set 3 weeks ago and you've failed to update it since then." Perhaps it's just that I'm used to Facebook-style status updates (which can be cleared) rather than Twitter-style ones (which cannot).

That's pretty much why I disabled that box. I'm ok with people setting their status, it is a great way to keep in touch with people's activity, but most of us do want to share exceptional events or out of the ordinary things, and in that case, there is no way to reset the status

How do you enable/disable status updates?
