Feature Request: Ajax loading spinner
There are a good handful of functions that would be a lot better w/ principles of responsive design either hard-coded in or as a configuration option. For example, clicking the post button, deleting messages, and sending a message reply all rely on AJAX but to the average user (i.e. unpatient non-developers) the site may seem slow, sticky, or broken if they click and button and nothing happens for a good bit of time, depending on how fast your server can serve up admin-ajax.php. Thusly, I propose adding a default spinner that replaces any button that uses AJAX and makes the submit button disabled until a response is receive. I custom coded this for the reply to message button, and would be more than willing to share my code, though I fully believe in the BP developers ability to do it themselves I love BP and hope to see it take over the world one day.
