New Feature suggestion - Timed Speed Limit

Reported by: MajereXYU Owned by:
Priority: Normal Milestone: Sometime
Component: Transmission Version: 1.76
Severity: Normal Keywords: Speed Limit


Hello! Sometimes, I will set a Speed limit and turn on the Speed Limit mode while I do something that requires my bandwidth to be available, only to forget Transmission in speed limit mode afterwards. An option offering time limits would be nice. Here is an example of how it could work:

Right clicking the speed limit "turtle" button could open a contextual menu offering preset time limits (e.g. 5min, 10min, 30min, 1hr, 2hrs and a Customize option).

When activated with a time limit, the Turtle icon could sport a little stopwatch badge. Also, the option would be accessible from Transmission's menu bar navigation in "Transfers > Timed Speed Limit > [Time]".

All four people in the development channel voted against this function. The general feeling was that this feature wouldn't be used enough to make it worth the extra code and extra GUI options.
