Guild AFK indicator

Didn't find this with a forum search, so I'll start the suggestion thread.

It would be very handy if the guild member list would place an afk indicator by online player's names that have the game minimized to tray or no input detected for 10+ minutes. It's sometimes hard to tell if people don't notice guild chat / quests or if they're afk fishing or whatever.

Yeah there definitely needs to be an indicator of being AFK given how much this game encourages it. A few MMO's of late have the option to type <afk> or even "x is AFK [insert personalized message here]

10 minutes with no input probably wouldn't work because something like fishing might count as an activity and the counter would reset. Or people like myself that grab 500 iron ore and process it then minimize to tray.

They should add a DND (do not disturb) mode also.

By input I meant keyboard/mouse input. The game detects any key press or mouse movement within the game window. Haven't you seen the afk camera float and photo filter swaps?

+1 to both ideas.  With as much AFK as this game allows, it really is needed to help determine if a guild activity is worth doing or not.  The family names will help with all the alts everyone uses for various things in game.

+1. Knowing when someone is AFK is nice.. that way we would know actual numbers for guild missions and if our friends are actually online.

Considering how much this game promotes afk activity it is amazing they don't already have at least the /afk (auto response) feature.

I agree with both ideas as well. As far as the afk feature, I don't even mind if it's manual, as long as it flags as "AFK" to the guild.

I wholeheartedly want both of these ideas.  It is impossible to tell when you want to do a guild quest if you have enough people actually "Online".  I don't care if it is manual or automatic to tell afk.  Plus the family name feature would be great too.
