#10056 closed defect (fixed)

Status Message Overrides makes it hard to see idle status

Patch Status:


I'm not sure if this is what Ticket #10015 was talking about, but I have found it kind of annoying when my away contacts go idle. The status message first displays that the contact went idle and then re-displays their away message and in the chat windows this overrides the status notification that they went idle so I don't get to see that they went idle. This makes it hard to notice if the person is still at his or her computer unless I specifically go to the contact list to check. And this occurs on AIM.

We shouldn't be redisplaying the away message when the contact goes idle if the contact is already away.

jchang, please clarify this a bit. Are you saying that if a contact goes away at 3:00 PM, the away message is shown... and then if the contact goes idle at 3:10 PM, the away message is shown again?

Ahh - if that's the case, then I definitely agree. I interpreted this as, contact goes idle, then away a few seconds after - the away status will 'override' the idle status in the message window now, so you cannot see the idle change.

Yeah, evands described it properly. The contact is away at 3:00PM, then goes idle at 3:10PM and the idle status is shown but is immediately overridden (and thus cannot be seen) because the away message is shown again because the contact is already away.
