UserStatus is a script that displays a user's status on their masthead. It could be useful for community-based wikis. It is also configurable.


Changing your status

Your status is stored at User:USERNAME/status on your wiki. You can either:

  1. Type in a status and publish it. There should be no other page content. OR
  2. Use the dropdown menu which appears on your masthead under your bio/info (legacy) or next to the "Edit Profile" button (UCP).

The available statuses are:

  • online
  • away
  • dnd
  • offline

Please edit only your own status. A warning will display if you attempt to edit others' statuses (legacy).


Settings are stored in the window.UserStatusSettings object. It can go into both personal and site-wide JS.

0 means off/false and 1 on/true.

colorBlindMode Colorblind mode; adds icons to status indicators 0/1 1
lightTheme Light themed icons for colorblind mode 0/1 0 Requires colorBlindMode.
