I had a flash of inspiration this evening while staring at the ugly red circle-minus.
I always get confused when I see it as to what it means, so I put together something a little more descriptive/intuitive.
There are 3 states - Green, Yellow, Red.
Green means all tested permissions are allowed.
Yellow means one or more tested permissions are allowed.
Red means no tested permissions are allowed.
As currently configured, the permissions that are tested are, "send stream items," "comment," and "post to wall". I debated also including, "can chat" and "send private messages," (zmail) but I'm not sure how much those things are used at this point (most of my hubs have those things as unavailable for use anyway). So I chose to stick to things that didn't at all require addons or any thing remotely resembling "advanced" features.
Hovering over the icon will display what permissions the remote allows.
I still have some minor integration work to do to implement it in all the places where the red-circle-minus shows up, but I wanted to ask the consensus of the group about whether I should put in a merge request for it or if there is something obviously bad about this approach or if there were any other thoughts.
My idea is to try to keep it simple, but make it a bit more intuitive especially for new folks.
