It would be useful to have an Order status to go between "Received" and "Complete"
- something like "Queried" or "Querying" - for when I have started a communication
with the vendor - it's almost complete, but maybe a part missing?
Cheers, Ian

For something so specific, why not use the order notes and leave it as "received"?

Yes, this has been suggested several times over the years and it would definitely
have been a useful feature. Also (maybe especially?) for me from a seller's
perspective, because I feel uncomfortable when I've asked the buyer a question
and I am not sure if they are waiting for their order or if they are aware that
I am asking a question first.
I'd call it "awaiting response". Maybe a dual one to make it clear who's
the one who should be responding But I think just one should've worked
too. Could be connected to the green dot notification in the upper right corner,
to the party who's supposed to respond.

Not assuming Bricklink will change anything, but perhaps we'll see it in
some future under a different management or something like that.

Those mostly already exist in the interface - invoiced by the invoice icon, payment
pending by the grand total in regular letters, payment initiated by the grand
total in bold letters (but it's a bit cryptic.. interface could've been
better..).
