Description: An option for a server admin to set an amount of time that after not inputting for this length the user is then marked as AFK. The admin can then select to perform a variety of options on an away player such as moving to an Away channel, muting/deafening.
The idea has been proposed before I'd like to request it once again for the following reasons:
1) Saves server resources if you deafen/mute players
2) Allows others to see that you have not performed input for X minutes.
Now from my understanding this has not been implemented because someone may be watching a movie and be "unfairly" marked as AFK. However, I don't see this as a problem(and am sure many others would agree). If someone has been watching a movie without giving input for longer than allowed by the server, then they probably won't mind being temporarily deafened/muted. After all, they can still be reached by using text messages. Servers with infinite bandwidth allocation may have no problem with not deafening the users but for the rest of us its a waste of a precious resource. I believe its something that should be automated by mumble to allow admins this option(even if its off by default).
