Description David Edmundson 2011-11-18 00:29:51 UTC
There's no need for it, and it just means the plasmoid displays completely nonsense out-of-date data.
Comment 1 David Edmundson 2011-11-25 17:14:04 UTC
A quick update on this.

Presence is no longer saved to a config. \o/

NickName and Avatar still are, so effectively all setting them in the plasmoid does is update a config file and reads from it - and it doesn't actually represent anything on the network.

Imho global nicknames and global avatars simply don't work in practice, and therefore it should be killed to death.
Comment 2 Francesco Nwokeka 2011-12-09 16:08:21 UTC
This will be eliminated with the new changes to the presence plasmoid
Comment 3 Martin Klapetek 2011-12-21 13:27:33 UTC
The plasmoid was pretty much rewritten and lost the popup part. Since this is no more an issue, I'm closing it.
