    Default AFK

    When someone is AWAY FROM the KEYBOARD (aka: AFK) It would be nice to know. If they could in a NON-GAME situation grey their player by CLICKING something to signify that they are not there, might also be a nice tool for players.

    Great idea! It takes time to log back in - so if you just need to grab a drink or have to answer the phone, it would be very helpful to be able to indicate to others that your character is not active at the moment.

    Sony, are you listening?

    This is a good idea. You should post it on the FR site in the suggestion thread.

    I like it too,... sometimes you are just away for a few minutes and logging back in is a PAIN, but your friends may think you are being stuck up if you don't acknowledge them when they come by to chat. Good IDEA.

    I believe you can set yourself as afk by typing /afk. I don't think it will automatically set you that way though which is odd because every other SOE game has that feature.
