There are actually three ways for you to post a status update:
- Scroll to the “Recent Status Updates” box on the right hand side of the main forum page. There is a "what's on your mind" status update box at the top.
- Open your profile by clicking your avatar anywhere on the site. You can post a Status Update on your main profile page. The status update box is at the top under the "Activity" tab.
- In the header area of the site, you will see "+Create". Click on the arrow and select "status".
