Would it be possible to have an indicators on the launcher that suggests the consensus of the state of the network?
At the moment, we have ‘Connected’ and then left with subjective experience.
I wonder a user might be encouraged seeing an indicator which suggests the difference between their node and the group they are part of. If there is lag between the node and the rest of the network that might suggest a local issue; where the group is in flux that might suggest something else; if there’s a lot of traffic, that might make the user more sympathetic to delayed responses.
Unclear to me what the options are for making the network more visible and tangible… but perhaps those could follow from average response to GET/PUT/DNS-requests/DELETE/CREATE/etc - a row of red/amber/green lights would do.
