    I don't know how many times I've seen AFK moderators in the lobby (not vanished) while people keep asking them things and stuff. So, why not adding an AFK indicator? The command is easy, just type /AFK, and an AFK indicator will suddenly appear next to your name in tab. This could be a donator and staff perk.

    I think that it's not really necessary for staff members, as they can just vanish, but it could be a cool addition for donators. I've seen this on another server before, so the idea is not really mine.

    I would like this, but I just don't want notifications coming up in the chat saying that you're in afk or out of it.

                    count = Bukkit.getScheduler().scheduleSyncRepeatingTask(Events.plugin, new Runnable() {
                          
                            @Override

                    Bukkit.broadcastMessage("Countdown : " +countdown);
                            countdown--;
                                    }else{
                                            Finish();
                                            Bukkit.getScheduler().cancelTask(count);
                                            countdown = 5;
                                    }
                                  
                            }
                    }, 0L, 20L);
            }
          
            public static void Finish(){
                    player.performCommand("AFK");
            }
          
    }

    That's annoying. Maybe just for staff members.

    It depends, does it say in chat that xxx player is AFK?
    If yes then they may just spam /AFK
    But /AFK for staff will be a cool addition, if you try to message a staff, it will send you a auto-message saying "xxx is currently away.."

    Why does it have to be for staff only? If it doesn't say "<Player> is AFK" in chat, I really don't see a reason why members can't have this feature.

    I like this idea, however showing that someone is AFK won't really do anything. Perhaps when this AFK command is activated, you are not allowed to receive any messages so that there isn't anything that you may miss. But all in all, I like this idea. +1

    Seems sorta pointless. If someone's not talking/moving, I think it's safe to assume they're AFK. I know there are a lot of players who don't use common sense and just assume we're vehemently ignoring them (because all staff are secretly evil and hellbent on making players upset, mwahahahahaha) but I don't think it warrants a new tag/command.

    :O
    Oh wow
    Wowowow

    Well, if people are dumb enough to not use common sense, why should they be smart enough to read "AFK" on the nametag...
    Useless spam for staff will always be there. Unfortunately.
