This thread may have run it's course but we haven't heard from any Dev's yet (whether it's even possible or if it's something they will/won't consider). Somehow it made it to the bottom of page 2.

This is a great idea and I won't bump it again but I just wanted to see if anyone else had any more comments to add.

But what if a player keeps playing while he/she is afk? Or starting to chat again? Would the afk sign be switched off? And..can you still read the chat while being afk?

It may well run its course, but I will continue to bump it until a Response is made. It seems like whining only gets CCP's attention. If thats the case, here you go CCP.

9 pages and still no Dev comments (not even a "We'll look into this" or "This is not going to happen").

In fact do Dev's even read this forum?? I haven't seen a post by a Dev since Oveur back at the beginning of November (now on page 6). Prior to that you have to go back to page 16 to the 9 September.

Why does the general discussion forum get so much attention from Dev's while those of us with ideas on game improvements get nothing? I would love to see some comments from Dev's on some of our ideas. This may allow us to start a sticky with links to previous ideas (and Dev responses) that answers common requests such "Skill queues", "Instancing" "First Person Views" etc, etc.

Come on dev's Where's the love???

Too often do I notice that when the server spots no user activity for certain period, it silently drops connection so when you try something you get login screen. It might be a network bug but because it happens only after being afk for a while or keeping client minimized (while being active with the alt account), I see it as a strong evidence that this is intentional - CCP tries to keep server load less by getting rid of afk people, even if unofficially.

For this reason I dont' think devs want you to go afk while eve client is running, so to them putting afk indicator on will mean you should be disconnected from the server. This option is already implemented - just close your EVE client application.

Another proof.
There is an afk button in Windows 2000 (and the like) - you press ctrl+alt+del, you push "lock workstation" and all access to machine is locked until current user's password is entered.
I always do it when going afk for awhile. The problem with EVE is that when I do it, EVE client just closes, effectively refusing to work when it knows for sure that the user is being afk. Pretty self-explaining behavior I believe...

9 Pages with no reply. Why? Is it not possible, too much net traffic, or is it simply that pretty much all staff are working on other things?

BTW, An "I'm in the $*@&" would be nice. And realistic for me Razz
