Are discussions here in the coffee corner the equivalent of status updates in the old SCN?

Or do we still need status updates as a separate thing? I can't decide. What do others think?

    Of course we need the feature back as a separate thing! Steve, come ooon, what kind of question is this?! ;)

      Seriously. How is it different from what we're doing here now? Isn't this the same thing?

        Was it in the old SCN? ^^ I think this is more "open" kinda. And the feature was more... I don't know. Kind of more personal having it on your profile.

        On the other hand: I think we used the "status update" feature not quite in the way it was intended to be on old SCN. So you're right, this is kind of the same, as we had a lot of discussions there. *g*

          Things here are certainly more visible than status updates used to be. Everyone can see them, while before only followers saw them, or people who went looking at your profile.

          And the old status updates looked different in the activity stream so they stood out from everything else.

          And of course there was the "only status updates" view of the activity stream.

          I like your characterisation of them as "more personal" than discussions here. That makes sense to me.

          Hmmm. The more I think about it, the more I think they are different after all. AND WE NEED THEM BACK...
