I haven't been able to figure out how to change's my status. Mine still shows just joined the community. Others seem to have discovered it, but I have not.
To change your status, click on the CREATE icon near the top-right of the screen and then click on STATUS UPDATE.
You can type it in there and even upload a picture if you want. Alternatively, you can type in an update on the activity page: http://community.shaw.ca/activity.
Hope that helps, cheers!
