Should we add an AFK button for chat? It would automatically mark you as away, and I'd find that useful, as sometimes people don't know I'm AFK because they may not see me say brb and chat won't mark me as away unless I'm on a different window/tab.

Sure. (Ohmygod123 (talk) 22:17, October 21, 2012 (UTC))

I support. When I'm on a new tab, it takes a few minutes for the chat to say I'm away. An AFK button sounds useful for when you want the chat to know you're away right when you're away. Template:MSig


One does, one can see a button like it on the SFW chat. Template:SpyroSonicSig

I agree! SFW has this feature too. a seperate user can have it. its called chat hacks. 35pxSplashTheHedgehog 22:25, October 21, 2012 (UTC)

If such a feature indeed exists, I don't see anything wrong with implimenting it. Might as well support. Lloyd the Cat"I don't die. I just go on adventures." 22:36, October 21, 2012 (UTC)


This sounds good. I like to see a button like this instead of always saying "BRB" or "Back" all the time. Let's get on voting, why not? Template:BlueSig - 6:31PM-10/21/12

Per Blue. I've really been irritated when my computer refuses to say I'm away...I totally support. --Template:SUsig01:01, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

Per everyone so far. Template:WillSig 03:14, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

I like this idea, as I am often in another tab. Also, might I suggest another option? Would it be possible if the chat could ping you if your username is mentioned, or if you receive a PM? This could make the tab flash or something. Might be helpful, as when I'm in another tab, I never notice if anyone asks me anything or PMs me until it's pointed out to me. Or when it's too late to answer a question. Trak Nar Ramble on 03:17, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

I think there should be a ping whenever someone says something in chat and a Ping for PM. Cause at times Idk when people are talking when Iam on another Tab. But I think that the Ping thing should be in another Forum. Template:WillSig 03:21, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

Per Trak Template:KatHalloweenSig

A ping would be nice, but that might be harder to implement. Since the AFK button seems to have been used elsewhere, that'll probably be quite easy to implement. I'm in favour of both, but someone would need to find out how to do the pinging. -- Supermorff (talk) 07:34, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

I support. Per Supermorff. --Template:BFSig 23:05, October 22, 2012 (UTC)

So, when is this AFK Button going to be implemented? Just asking cause it's been a whlie since someone commented on this forum and I would of thought it would be in the chat by now. :P Template:WillSig 04:51, November 7, 2012 (UTC)

Willaca, anyone who knows how to implement is welcome to do so. -- Supermorff (talk) 10:52, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

Okay. Template:WillSig 10:56, November 9, 2012 (UTC)

I have contacted an admin one the Sonic Fanon Wiki. We will hear from the admin soon. Template:SilverSig 03:00, November 12, 2012 (UTC)
