#3810 closed Enhancement (invalid)

Indicate when temporary speed limts are set even when backgrounded

Temporary speed limits are great. On a constricted line, I toggle them on and off frequently. Sometimes I forget to toggle them back off, go out for lunch and find that my download has not advanced at all when I return.

Solution, 'remind' forgetful people like me that speed limits are set by changing transmission's icon (maybe blue), both on panel- and in notification- areas. Also adding a simple text string to the window tile might help.

I know about Ticket #3685, but which ever way you go regarding implementation, I think this small idea would be potentially very useful to those who don't have the transmission window open all the time.

(I use gtk-client, if other clients already do this, I'm unaware of that fact)

I see your point, and thanks for making this suggestion.

In this instance, I don't think it's a frequent enough problem to warrant a high-visibility solution like this. Also, I agree that #3685 is going to limit the number of people who would see the desktop icon in the first place.

I'm going to close this ticket as a wontfix, but appreciate the ticket.
