Make status comments easier to access?

The status comment feature (http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/CODEGEIST/Confluence+Status+Comment) is great and we have it installed in our instance of Confluence.

But it's hidden away on a tab in each person's profile, which makes it difficult for people to add comments on the fly to a status update or to see when someone has commented. Has anyone figured out a way to make this more visible/accessible?

I looked in Atlassian Plugin Exchange but didn't see any place to ask questions about this feature, but please redirect me if this isn't the right venue.

Email works. You can also raise an issue:

issue page - https://studio.plugins.atlassian.com/browse/STATCOM

The plugin includes a macro you can place on any page

{statuscomment}

Optional Parameters:

size: 10 - An integer representing the number of statuses to show.

who: String representing the users who's status should be shown. Valid values include 'watchers' to get statuses of all watchers of a page or a comma separated list of userIds. Omitting this parameter will result in the status for the current user being shown.

includeFollowing: true,false - Specifies whether to include the statuses of users being followed by identified users.

The "Confluence Status Comment"-plugin was once an entry on the codegeist maybe 2 years ago and the current status of the plugin states: unsupported. I guess that the developer who created plugin isn't activily supporting it anymore, but you could always e-mail him to check.

It happens quite offten to plugins, the original developer can't find the time or motivation to support his entry. It's something to verify before adding it to your instance.

Yeah, I noticed it that it was a Codegeist entry that looked pretty promising. My other hope is that this year's Jitter entry will be made available for Confluence (not just Jira)

drop me an email at me [at] stefankohler dot nl, I working on something that might interest you. Could give early access for some feedback.

On a other note (and not as answer), wat would be a good way to make such funtionality more accessible? Do you have an suggestion for that?

I'm working on a plugin which enables more or less the same functionality but more on a mentions ways (like ie. twitter does)
