yes (adding it to this view would probably be the easiest fix).

Maybe a key (something with ctrl, probably) to jump from the
username question field to that view? Also, it’s pretty hard
to enter the username when there is only one column for one
to type (think typos)…

Maybe make it two-lined:

It might be less work to allow the status line to be shifted left/right
(and though clumsy, would eliminate the problem of a message that goes on
for several lines).

textarea's allow that type of editing.

If that is possible with the lynx code in advanced user mode,
that is.

partly that - also that even in novice mode, there's some assumptions
buried in the code that affect the layout of that line.
