Some users think that toast popups (epecially presence popups) are way too big and stays for too long on the screen. Attached are Presence Popup and Message Popup. It seems that in the popup Spark is trying to show whole image. This could be even worse if someone would set a really big image as avatar. Maybe it should show the same size as set in contact list, or 32x32 at least. And there is lots of space (white under avatar and nickname, blue - the header of popup window) which can be reduced. It would be great if Presence popup would look like Message popups. Though message popups could use some unneeded space reducing too. Also, Presence popup staying time is way to long. You need one sec to understand the change of presence. No need to show it for ~5 secs. It gets really irritating while browsing/editing and trying to scroll down with scroll button. Then you have to wait for these nasty toasts to dissapear. Presence popups could have close button too (unless staying time would be reduced to one sec e.g.)
1. Make Presence Popups smaller, more efficient space use.
2. Make Presence Popups' staying time shorter - ~1 sec.
3. Make an Option in Notifications Preferences - Popups stay until you close them.
3.1. Make a Close button for Presence Popups.
