These iChat 3 pages are coloured Orange and have the iChat 3 icon on them that was in use at the time, so you know where you are. The icon differs from Version 1 by having the camera logo added and from iChat 2 by having the Running Man removed.

1 Access Drop Down for Editting and Changing
This is the iChat 3 Status Messages Access point.
The Status Messages can be changed.
Clicking on the current Status Message will open this Drop down.
There are two plain presets by defualt that read Avialable or Away and will change your blob from Green to Red or Red to Green depending on which way you are changing.
There is also a Custom option in either secion which gives you access to change the Message currently shown.
As you can see the Custom ones you make can be saved and chosen in the future.
You will also notice that my Away Message for when it is "Too late (for me) to Video" chat has the keystrokes or text equivilants of Smileys that will show as Smileys at the other end.
iChat 3 also offers you the choice to show what is playing in your iTunes if it is Running. Is it an Available option. You can not use it and show as Away. By default it shows Tune then Artist. However this Hint at MacOSXHints can allow you to change this as the purists claim it should be Aritist then Track. Anyhow the message will then change somewhat dynamically as the Tunes change.
An Applesript can be used in the same way to put up multiple phrases one after the other to achive a sort of Scrolling message
