  1. I have checked the Chat section in the Already Suggested Items Thread, and I did not see this.
    I have seen multiple players type "afk" into chat and walk away from their computer.
    They probably just forgot to add the "/", or maybe they didn't know there was a command.
    I think that if a player just types "afk", then the server should redirect that message to "/afk" instead.

    This is just something I thought of. It might be a good idea after all, but who knows?
  2. That is a good idea. Maybe if they say 'AFK' or 'afk' only, as it might mistake afk in a sentence as the usage of the command.

  3. People say AFK to let their friends know that they are not around. Most players will just call someone's name out in town chat without checking /p [player], and then they think they are being ignored. So people say AFK to give people a warning.

  5. When i say aft or brb is because ill not be in my keyboard for less than 2 mins, this is for people to know that I'm not reading the chat if they need me

    maybe let AFK not /afk you but just typing afk will
  6. The server should send "afk" into the chat, as well as activate the /afk command. :)
  7. Just curious, what does /afk do?
  8. Well, when I tell someone I'm afk its usually to go use the bathroom. I don't want telling people that I am afk to put me at the top of the list to get booted to make more room. Good idea in theory though I think.
  9. When you /p info* them, it will say they are away. It also displays that they are afk if you try to message them.
