"Degraded" systray icon decoration

Reported by: mmindenhall Owned by: EionRobb
Milestone: Component: unclassified
Version: 2.6.6 Keywords:


I frequently switch computers, going from my work PC to my home PC, to my laptop (mix of Win7 and WinXP). I have Pidgin installed on all of them. When I switch from one computer to another, I sometimes don't remember to double-click the systray icon in order to re-enable my 4 accounts (AIM, MSN, Yahoo, corporate Jabber) on that computer. Hence, I can end up working for hours without realizing that I'm not reachable via IM.

I think this situation would be helped greatly if there was a systray icon decoration to indicate a "degraded" level of service (i.e., one or more accounts is disabled). Upon seeing the modified icon (instead of the green icon which seems to indicate "all is well"), I would be reminded to re-enable my accounts.
