Making detailed menubar status optional

Reported by: Noiz Owned by: incandescant
Milestone: Adium X 1.1 Component: SoC-Psyduck
Version: Severity: normal
Keywords: Cc:
Patch Status:


It has been requested that the menubar status icon to display detailed status such as "away" or "invisible" or others, which is actually a really good function and has already been done in the 1.0 beta2, except that I would hope it would be an option whether to display the detailed status in the menubar icon.

Personally because I have multiply accounts on at the same time with different status, I do not use the menubar icon for the actual status but I use it to be notified whether a new message has arrived or not while using the custom iChat menubar icon so that the menubar icon will display an exclaimation mark when new messages come.

I know some people will benefit from having status displayed in the menubar, and that's why I'm hoping that it would just be an option that can be turned on and off, because I think having the detailed status over the menubar icon kind of ruins the simplicity or aesthetics of the menubar.

Basically, it's like, having the option between the current 0.89 menubar setting, or the new 1.0 beta setting.

I would like to second this post. I rely soley on the menubar icon to inform me of new messages. I find that it is discrete and simple as at work I would prefer less attention to any of my dock items. While I do find the beta options appealing, I would really like for the menubar options to work both ways as specified by parent-author of this post.
