Has anyone else noticed the tiny greyed-out symbols that sometimes appear in front of the "remove/not interested" for new Qs?

I was delightfully surprised to see the little pencil means that someone is presently composing an answer to the Q. Nice touch, Fluther folks. When did it first appear and who do we thank?

They’ve been here since I joined, which was almost two years ago. I didn’t make them, but you can thank me anyways.

Don’t feel badly. I didn’t notice it until about a month ago and I got excited too until I was told it was an old feature.

@erichw1504 oh silly unobservant me!

Yep! It has been there all along. See the pencil while I’m composing. Now I’m going to hit answer and if no one else is composing, it’s going to go away. Watch.

@AmWiser Oh, I read that as “it’s going to say Go Away”. That would be a rather rude new fluther feature, wouldn’t it?
