#9117 new patch

Change close_immediate preference to not be so confusing

Reported by: dlou99 Owned by: deryni

Description

The wording for the close_immediate preference is confusing and ambiguous. From reading the description, it is not obvious what this preference does. Even if the user gets the idea that conversations are hidden for a while, he/she has to guess as to exactly for how long. This feature is not documented anywhere.

The attached patch makes this preference self-documenting by updating the text and changing to a spinbox.

I do have to say I like the approach taken by this patch. I still think the feature isn't needed and that we can correct the issues preventing this from working as desired as currently implemented so as to make it work for everyone.

Well, I'm serious about the confusing description. It would seem that going to a spinbox would solve at least that problem.

I believe both deryni and I think there's a bug there (notices disappearing when they are by default).

Noting for anyone else looking at this, see #9013.
