It seems on this board the status within chat-headings doesn't work pretty well. I can't reproduce, neither on master nor on v0.5.x branch so it would be great to have an update.
It often shows a state the user doesn't have, sometimes I've also seen 'null' as state.
Second issue, reproduced on master: If I set my status to invisible and change the page to a topic it shows me within 'browsing' (DéjàVu )
I know it is blasphemy to reply/reopen an old thread, but I think I have some sort of workaround for this. Say that per-category header warning message is 1) not going to be as native functionality, or 2) still waiting for plugin for that, I think a pinned thread atop all threads would suffice.
