    Some people talk to each other on the site through profile posts, which is fine, but as of v5 those posts appear in the Recent Status Updates block. This makes the posts in the block meaningless to the people outside of the discussion, and downgrades an otherwise cool feature. Mods, @tj_cool, @Costello, we would appreciate it if you returned the block to its old function.

    +1. It's extremely annoying, especially when like 90% of the "status update" things are practically useless, all caps spam.

    Have to agree here - a lot of this stuff could even be in PMs, something that a decent sized group of users seem to be neglecting.

    I use the PM system.

    Edit:
    I agree, or at least let users choose if it goes on the homepage.

    OH: "Ugh, you're getting so off-topic on your status update conversation, can we just take this lolcat meme discussion to PMs?"

    Moral: just make it like v4 again.

    Hm, I'm going to have to agree here. I don't like GBAtemp easily seeing me communicate with other members while I'm using caps saying "HOW ARE YOU 2 DAY". It's more not explicit.

    I vouch for this.
    It's annoying as fuck indeed.

    I'm okay with users posting on other people's profiles but if they just post meaningless spam and shit, it needs to be removed.

    Like its fine to just have regular status updates, but not profile posts on that section. I want to stick with my 2 DAY trend but not have it shown by everyone scrolling down on the forum; instead by them going around the forum instead. Better way to clarify my post.
