_status Method Family

Notice the difference between a _status and a _notice (or several other method families):

A _status is never an unsolicited event happening, it is always issued as a reply to a request or similar. It contains data that has not changed, but was requested or should be visualized to the recipient.

Like echo and notice a status also indicates that everything is alright. If something isn't fine, then you probably should reply with a warning, an error or a failure.

Typical examples would be _status_version to see the version of somebody's software, or _status_place_topic to see the conversation topic of a place.
