#1515 closed Enhancement (wontfix)

Mac client's peers tab needs a screenshot-friendly way of showing choked, interested, etc.

Description

Currently this information is available via tooltips. That helps declutter the interface, but doesn't scale well for more than a handful of peers, and is particularly unhelpful when mac users report poor upload or download speeds, and take the time to include a screenshot, but it's impossible to determine from a screenshot:

  • if a peer is interested in us
  • if we're interested in the peer
  • if the peer has unchoked us
  • if we've unchoked the peer

etc.

Do you have a recommendation besides quite-confusing letters (that also take up quite a bit of space)?

Well, it's going to keep coming down to space no matter what we choose, isn't it?

Maybe a "detailed information" checkbox on the peers page that, when clicks, adds columns for the different states.

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

the benefit vs. user confusion and ugliness is not worth it
