I was talking to Kangie just a second ago, and what we were talking about kinda made me write this thread.

It's simply just your perfect feature from Stuffplug and i'm kinda interested to hear yours. Even if it cannot be done, won't be done ect it still counts. Be as creative as you like / technical as you like.

My perfect feature would be something like a stuffplug widget or something simalar on your desktop and it goes a little like this.

it's not that big, just a standard box. It shows your status, DP, number of emails you may have, statistics such as the number of people online/offline/away/busy number of blocked users and link to the SP homepage. When the widget box loads up the SP logo fades in and stays there if you are not signed in. It would show how many messengers are loaded up (If polygamy is enabled). You can also change your status from it.

The SP widget will always be there, but when messenger is not loaded up it just minimizes into a small rectangle and says "Messenger not loaded up".
When messenger is loaded up the box grows into a larger box with the SP logo for your display pic untill you sign in.

When you sign in the DP would fade into the current one you are using for messenger and the stats will obvouisly update accordingly.

When you hover over, or click on the widget, two buttons will fade in to the bottom of it, saying "options" and "Welcome Screen".

Also, as the sub feature you can drag and drop a picture onto the widget and it will give you two options; set as display picture or set as a custom emoticon (along with tag and stuff).

So yeah that was mine, lets see if anyone has any too, I'll probably look stupid and no one will post though knowing my luck sad.gif.

A stuffplug widget like that would be sweet biggrin.gif! I'd use it if it wasn't a memory hog smile.gif.

I think the feature I'd like most (and I am sureeee it would be possible) is the option to add/remove/rearrange the dashboard icons. If that were ever implemented... I'd be so happy smile.gif.

Having icons that only other countries have (like some phone, and a cell [mobile] phone). Having the option to add links to my OWN programs and/or webpages. It would be awesome smile.gif. I'd loooove that happy.gif.

One can dream smile.gif...

Sweet idea! I don't like the idea of minimizing to a small rectangle though. Possible just minimizing to the system tray, as those sorts of things tend to get in the road (thats why my desktop contacts are at the very right hand side of my screen, and above and below my dp area so nothing is hidden)

My perfect feature, and this applies for ANY program, nice fading and see through effects. I always find those sorts of things look really really cool. So whatever you can spice up using that idea, I say go for it!

blink.gif wow I like this very much !

But can it al be done by SP with short Memory use? (WLM already takes so much)
If this can done, brilliant idea laugh.gif

It's almost an stand alone, if there was one with this feature's... It would be hot

I think you should add that to the suggestions.
That is actually more or less what Windows Messenger has, just a lot more simple. I've been using windows messenger for a while now due to problems which concerns WLM and I think thats one of it's better points.

Maybe have the amount downloaded/how much left should be squeezed there somewhere laugh.gif

Well in another thread we're talking about adding something in between the display pictures. But say you wanted to see the transfer status as well as another part of the area in between the display pictures. This is where this idea could come in. When you choose to display the transfer at the bottom of the conversation the convo is automatically resized to be able to fit the window into view without overlapping things such as the task bar.

As for improvement, well all we ever asked for was a transfer rate and speed with a pause button smile.gif And it seems you've given us just that biggrin.gif

Hmm
I read that topic yes.
But i guess that space between is not enough.

to show pause button and a accurate transfer bar.
and also the rate etc.
I just getting a new idea.
Ill work it out when I'm back from school.

In that case it is possible to show a transfer bar..

Stay tuned.
