[SUGGESTION] Custom away message

Discussion in 'The Suggestion Box' started by ItsMeMatheus, Jul 29, 2014.

  1. With the upcoming supporter changes, I thought of a simple yet useful new supporter perk: Being able to temporarily change the default /away message when someone PMs you. This would be useful to state when you're coming back or why you left.

    The commands would be:
    /away message set [message] - Changes your away message to whatever you want
    /away message default - Changes the away message to the current one

    For example, if I wanted to change my message to "I'm currently away and will return at 3 PM EMC time. PM me on the forums if you need me.", this is what the message would look like:
    [AWAY] I'm currently away and will return at 3 PM EMC time. PM me on the forums if you need me.
    The [AWAY] prefix is there to avoid potential trolling.

    The message would not persist on logging out (You probably won't be away for the same reason/won't be back at the same time everytime).

    Any thoughts or ideas? Please comment below!

  3. I've been thinking about suggesting this, lol.

    Anyways; This idea is good, if I were the leader of EMC, I would approve.
