Show Away Time

Post by snowboardchik23 »

When people put away messages on, could you make it so that you can see how long they have been AWAY, instead of just how long they have been IDLE?:roll:

what would be the point of that, if u really want to know more info about them, u can lower your idle time, to see how long they havnt been at the computer....becuase i find that there is no point of haveing to see how long they are away...i guess i just dont know where your coming from :-?

You only go idle if no one touches your keyboard or mouse for 10 minutes or longer.

Instead, perhaps a more useful feature would be what time he put up the away message. This would be esp. useful for messages such as "bb in 20."

I do actually think that a feature like this would be quite useful. I have a few friends who have the idle time disables, and it would be nice to see how long ago someone said "Back in an hour" so if I need to talk to them, I can know whether or not it is worth it to wait.
Thats just my opinion though. :wink:

it would be an ok maybe useful feature but another server issue because you might be able to do it as a regular feature if maybe you are online 24/7 and timed how long they are away but other wise another server issue
