Could we show if someone is typing on chat?

Consider this scenario

A and B were chatting for an specific answer and why can't we show the specific user is typing when he types the post on a chat?

    -1 I hope not. Typing indicators are only annoying, e.g. when you need to do something else for a few minutes in between and return only to find "Hey send that message already", "What are you typing" and similar responses.

If the person isn't online the avatar will be faded out/not be visible in the list of users.

I don't see why we need another specific check for that.

  • i agree with you and why can't i accept the answer now if i try to accept answer it says you can accept it after 3 mins,now i reedited the question pls review it Aug 14, 2012 at 14:59
  • @vikki you need to wait for a little while before accepting an answer. This is in place to prevent gaming of the system. Be patient and you'll be able to accept in a few minutes. Aug 14, 2012 at 15:25

    It's faded if they haven't been active for a while though, not when they're not online. I've seen my avatar faded a lot of times.
