    I'm not sure if its been suggested before, or if it already exists, but I've seen it on other servers, and I think "/afk" would be nice.

    For example: someone would enter it, and then it would say "(Username) is now AFK". And then you would either enter it again or type something in chat, so then it would say "(Username) is no longer AFK."

    Thoughts?

    Does it really matter? Just type 'AFK' into the chat?

    There are many plans on doing things when you go AFK that are currently being worked on. Standing in a lobby uses resources so we're looking in to ways. :) It will most likely be automatic rather than having to type a command in to chat and I don't think it will be something that shows in chat.

    This thought was so random. Lol. It might be a little pointless but it couldn't hurt (besides possible spam). Thanks for the feedback!! :D

    ya it should be automatic. and when your in afk mode their should be a separate lobby. so when you go into afk, you automatically get tp into the lobby, and when you get back on it tps u back.

    What about an AFk timer? Like if you're 5 mins AFK You instantly be AFK in chat. And if you say someone's name, it will say a private message
    "[Player] is currently AFK".

    if a player is
    muted, they have got muted for spam, or language ect. If someone is muted for spam, they would be mad and spam more by doing /afk.
