Proposed UI for displaying accounts with different/error statuses
Submitted by Will Thompson
Currently, if you choose Hidden from the status menu but one of your accounts doesn't support being invisible, the status menu shows you as Busy even though (in the worst case) all bar one of your accounts is Hidden. (In a world where everyone has an auto-created Salut account, this will always be the case since Salut doesn't, and cannot, support Hidden.)
When an account is trying to sign on, the only information you have is that something is happening, based on the Writhing Toes of Torment animation. You have to open the Accounts dialog and scroll up and down looking for a flashing icon to see what's going on.
These two cases, and the case of an account having a connection error, seem like similar conditions: the status box shows one status, and some accounts differ from it. To me this suggests something looking like this:
I'm not sure how best to work the account names in.
