Hi there,

Thanks a lot for the feedback!

I'm sorry to have been away from the community for a while, but I do
plan to continue contributing in the future!

Oh I see, I just took this screenshot from a Live CD without
configuring Pidgin or anything. Is that a screenshot of the current
version of the code? Or is that something local to your configuration?
The default Ubuntu top-right applet in Intrepid has a red "on/off"
icon on the right, why doesn't your screenshot have it?

I would be in favor for that, yes, for consistency with other
apps/webapps. I don't remember ever seeing status icons on the right
in left-to-right languages, but maybe I haven't seen enough apps :-)

Sure, I can try to mock that up, but I'd like to know a bit more about
these statuses and the above questions.

Thanks again!
