Would it be possible to mark (with a blue dot or something else) my friends who are on line and actually playing a game? That way I can easily see whether my favorite player is playing so that I can watch him/her.
At the bottom there is the row of avatars of all my friends. I was wondering if that avatar could be changed somehow to reflect that a player is playing a game. To get the same effect I open the player's private chat and it says at the top something like 'This player is currently playing a game and might not respond.' That's how I know he/she is playing and then I shoot off to the 'Watch my buddies' games' list, look their name up and watch their game. It would be REALLYcool if I could just click on the blue dot (or whatever) and go straight to that game.
Look, I know that these things need to be programmed line by line and that something that is simply put could well be anything but simple to execute.
