Lack of interest [Suggestion] Change Quick Reply avatar opacity

A while ago there was a request to remove the avatar next to the quick reply because for some it caused a bit of a confusion. The request was rejected, and I think it was the right decision. But... it is still possible to do something to improve this.

So I suggest to give the avatar a different opacity depending on the situation/action.

Normal Quick Reply avatar:

I hope you can see what this does for the user in terms of usability? :)

In the quick reply template, you could add this to the line containing class="avatarHolder":
style="opacity:0.4; filter:alpha(opacity=40);"

Since this is done now for the editor itself, maybe it can be done for the user avatar as well ;)
Easy solution.
Go to your EXTRA.css and put
.quickReply div.avatarHolder {
and it works (sorta). Only problem is when you click in the editor box, the avatar stays opaque.

I know the CSS exists (and it's posted already) the point was indeed the change when focus changes on the editor. I guess a coder has an opportunity here to produce this. :)
