Many MMORPGs have an option that tells others you are currently afk.
Some of these games are based on commands, such as /sit, /quit, /sell, etc.
In some cases, you can type in /afk on for example and if someone wishes to 'say' something to you an automatic msg that you specified is sent to them.

something along the lines of
Player A wishes to speak to Player B
Player A sends /say Bedrock "hey whats up dude"
(In this case, perhaps in convo)
Player B has their /afk option on and sends them a polite msg.

However, Eve is not designed based on a console or a slash command type of interface. Instead, mostly everything is based on visual representation of Players. (ie, pictures in corp chat, buddy lists, local, gangs, etc).

So, with that, a visual representation of a person afk should be implemented.
However, I feel this kind of representation should only be applied to Corp Channels, and Gang channels (I just see abuse when it comes down to Local)

Here is what i'm referring to:
When you add someone to your buddy list, they have 2 colors, green or red.
What if I type /afk on:
And within my corp or gang this shows:
Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.

This shouldn't be stored in the server or in the clients machine, but just an indicator that is turned on?

Colors can be anything, obviously, here are some more.
Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.

Please visit your user settings to re-enable images.

so what you think?

Signed, I want this!

It's little things like this, that make the game better, and only take 1hr of developer's time.

This feature is already in-game. If you're playing in windowed mode, it is the little [X] button at the top right-hand corner. If you're playing in full-screen mode, hit the "esc" key, then the "quit game" button. You are now in "AFK" mode.

Excellent idea. I do like the fact it is limited to corp / gang channels.

signed,
alltrough it could aslo be nice if the game would auto detect afk if your just not moving your mouse/screen, after about 2-5 min.
make the afk go back to normal if you move your mouse/ship for more than 10 seconds.

To be honest this is a basic function that should have been included on EVE right from the start....I hate it when you are talking to someone without realising they are AFK
