    This seems like such a basic question, but I am unclear about the purpose of the "status message" box on the personal details page. Entering text there doesn't seem to affect what's being displayed when I post a message in the forum, as opposed to the "signature" field which shows up below the post. Is whatever text I enter there only being displayed on the personal details page? And what does "status" mean in this context? My guess is that it's not the status level in various frequent traveler program since many people seem to include that in their signature line, but I don't know.

    It just seems to be a place to add more info to your profile. If you leave your profile settings so people can see it and comment on it, and when someone clicks your handle or avatar and gets the popup window about you, your status message will appear there.

    Mainly it's just a little bit of ornamentation.
