future availability

Is there some way for me to post when we will be available? We are listed as not available but will be soon and for people trying to make plans in advance it would be useful for them to know when we will be home.

If you mean dates (not hours

If you mean dates (not hours of day) you are UNavailable, that can be edited under My Profile" then the Edit tab. Otherwise, it is assumed you are "available", at least not Definitely Unavailable. Note: Remove the password "dots" when you edit or you will get an error message. Best, John

Availability advertizes absence

The paranoid in me suggests that while this is a great idea, it unfortunately also advertises when you are away (though you might be unavailable for other reasons). So currently, if you are unavailable, you don't show up on the map to advertise that fact.

If you are going to be

If you are going to be available at some point in the near future (within several weeks) it'd probably be best to mark yourself available to host. Depending on your location, members can start looking for hosts fairly far out from their intended date of arrival. If your availability status is going to change frequently, you could link to a public google calendar (or something similar) in your profile to show specific dates (after taking into account all the caveats regarding security mentioned in the previous post).
