Away Message (Discussion)
Instead of a player simply leaving their status as away, they should be allowed to customize their away message. This could be compared to away messages received while using an instant messenger. Though this is a minor change, it would help the overall experience that a player receives when joining the Guild Wars community.
- Why this is a good idea
- Helps when trying to contact a specific person or a group of people. A player can communicate without actually being there, such as "Back in 5 minutes" or "I will be back at 6 pm".
- Allows much more customization for every person and lets them communicate their personality, similar to an answering machine message.
- Why it may not work out
- Inappropriate language may be used in messages, but this could probably be avoided through use of a filter.
