We've had some requests to change the default icons used to represent the different the server communities, so that when new communities are added, we don't show the same icon across the status bar at the top of the client. We are looking into a full refresh of the default community icon set.
Here is one set that we are considering. Do you have any comments on the following? (the preference to show them in the contact list is enabled in this example as well)
We've had some requests to better differentiate the server community icons shown in the My Status toolbar, and the contact list (if you choose to turn them on in the contact list preferences). These are used to help users know which contacts belong to different server communities, as well as what your current status is set to for each community.
Do you have any thoughts about the following proposal:
As a follow-up to the earlier entry on status settings, we would like your feedback on how you use instant message status
information when you contact others in a business environment. This
brief survey should only take a few minutes to complete. Your input is
very important to our process and will be used in combination with other
data to influence additional user experience work.
The Sametime contact list and chat windows display a status bar at the very bottom. This status bar is an extension that can be written to by third parties. I'm curious to know how you may be using this extension and if you could provide examples of the content that you are writing to this space.
We've all been busy preparing our talks, demos, prototypes, mockups, surveys, breakout sessions, and more and we're ready to see you next week in Orlando for Lotusphere 2011. It is going to be great - we are all incredibly excited!

I'm off to pack my bags after one more dry run of the mobile breakout session...
Question for users of Sametime Advanced- Are you using the FAQ feature for Chat Rooms and Skill Tap broadcasts? If so, how many FAQs are you seeing for individual chat rooms and broadcast communities? What are the maximum numbers you are seeing, and is it common for the number of FAQs to grow larger than, say 5, for an individual chat room or broadcast community?
We're hoping to see you this year at Lotusphere! Here is a list of Sametime UX breakout sessions.

Hi, We're looking for input and your thoughts about opening meeting room windows. If you are using the Sametime web-based meeting room manager to find/search for a meeting room to join, do you want to open the meeting room in a new window, new browser tab (if your browser is set to use tabs) or reload the room in your current browser view when you click the join meeting button?
For those of you who use Sametime on mobile smartphones, do you find yourselves needing to connect to multiple server communities? If so could you describe how often this occurs, and how many communities you need to connect to?
The Lotus User Experience Team is looking for people who share files in online meetings to participate in a brief study.
seek your input on what is important to you when you share files from
your local system, Lotus Quickr, Lotus Connections, LotusLive, or other
file sharing applications in Sametime Meetings. Your responses will be
used to assist us as we consider how to improve file sharing in online
meetings. Rate the 16 features at http://tinyurl.com/files-in-online-mtgs
Take a look at the upcoming Sametime IM apps for Android and iPhone, and the Meeting Room app for Blackberry. We have a few look and feel designs and icon sets to test out and we want to know what you think!
