    I believe that having a /afk function on the servers would be beneficial. When someone if afk and someone really wants them, then that person doesn't know and they might spam you with messages, but if you have them get a message saying "This player is afk". Then they should understand that you are away and cannot interact with others.

    You can use that comand to bait people to jump in the pvp zone. I already do it you adding it would make my life easier so why not add it!

    Well let's just say you wouldn't be able to afk in the pvp arenas.

    Sounds like something that players could use to spam chat with "____ is now afk".

    Then in order to combat the spam, maybe a timer could be placed on it so it decreases the spam. For example - "<username> is now afk" can lead to a 10-30 minute timer where they cannot use the command again.

    I'm not meaning it will say it in chat I'm saying is when you do /afk the whenever a player tries to message you it will say "this player is afk". It will not say anything ever in global chat.

    -just a comment adding onto the idea

    It would also be nice if you are afk without using the designated '/afk' command that if you're afk for a certain amount of time that it tells a player who messages you that you're afk.

    my apologies if this doesn't make any sense lolol

    I like that. Whenever I do /level it says 15weeks, but really subtract the afk time and its more like 9weeks or less

    Yeah that would be good and also to have it in the TAB menu too.
