[Notifications] Adjust indicator for the disappearance
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

(Sorry if this has been already discussed but I can't find anything here on Phab)

I think the indicator for disappearing notifications would be more visible at bottom because the line would be longer and assuming the time to consume it is the same it would disappear faster making it more prominent:

(in the mockup I added some padding to notifications but I see that even more of it has been added in master)

it would disappear faster making it more prominent:

which is exactly the reason against putting it at the bottom. It shouldn't be distracting.

I agree that the indicator doesn't need to be prominent. Because of the notification history it won't be lost if one misses it anyway. I am content with the way it is.

That being said there was already a discussion about this in the VDG chat starting on 4. April. Back then a popular idea was to have a circular indicator around the close button. I liked that idea as well. Back then @GB_2 was working on that but it wasn't easily implementable.

I agree and also like this idea.
