[jitsi-users] Events


#1

Hi all,

I'm looking over events here trying to find the one that will signal when someone signs in (or changes status).
Can't spot one; am I missing it?
If I'm not missing it, that's a feature I know lots of other chat programs keep on by default, and I think it would be a good idea to have.

A couple other notices on the topic -- I haven't run into anyone yet who appreciates the "Proactive Typing Notifications" being on by default and I'd really like to talk about having that off by default. I find it a right mess with it on, and all my friends agreed.

Secondarily, I'm wondering if anyone else has feelings on the stacking of events and the length of time they stay. For me, they stay a few whole seconds too long and I think they shouldn't overlap but overwrite one another. Back in the day, MSN switched from overlapping to overwriting and it was a godsend to me (thank God Jitsi doesn't stack them to the top of the screen like it did, though). The reason for overwriting instead of overlapping is because you can't read the one underneath anyway. Final argument for the point, if one contact has an avatar (call her Alice) and another doesn't (call him Bob), when Bob talks over Alice it looks a little like Alice is saying it because the side of Alice's avatar is visible behind Bob's event.

Lots on the topic!
What do we think?

As a counterpoint, I use this heavily to see if someone is responding
or ignoring me during a chat. Or if there is lag between our servers
during a chat. If someone is typing, I'll wait for their response. If
not, I'll flip windows and get something else done.

stacking of events and the length of time they stay.

On linux at least, this is controllable by the user.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your two cents.
On Windows the length of time that events stay is not editable as far as I have found. It'd be a nice feature to have.

Thanks,
Nick
