    Help: Create AFK channel for idlers

    Our clan is in the process of switching from Ventrilo to TeamSpeak3. In Ventrilo we have an AFK channel. It's a channel that when people join it, their mic's are muted, and their speakers are too. Also, the server moves people there if they've been idle for over 10 minutes.

    Now, I've figured out how to create a channel that mutes people when they join by using a talk power of 100 on the channel. However what I'm trying to figure out is how to get the server to move people into that channel automatically if they've been idle for x number of minutes.

    Is this possible?

    I can think about serverquery hook, pulling data every xxx min and moving ppl around.
    Since clientinfo contains idle data.

    nothing yet available for options, only idle time to remove clients from server.

    you could just create a channel and make the talk power 100, that would provide the same result as muting the mics (provided their talk power is below 100). The "Away" feature on the tool bar is also useful for this.

    You obviously didn't read my original post very well.

    in TS2, there was this script called the "TS2PerlMod"

    It could automatically switch idlers that are idle for x amount of time and move them to any channel you want, aswell as other cool features.

    If this gets updated for TS3, this would be the thing of choice

    Ya, I remember that. Something similar to that would be perfect.

    I'm not sure if its possible to get the "idle time" via server-query yet, "clientinfo" doesnt provide that data (yet)

    if you are able to retrieve that data via server query its like 20 lines of code with the "ts3 admin php"-thingie from the addon/script forum.

    So... using an external app, one could monitor the client_idle_time, until it reaches a certain value, then have the app move the client to the "AFK" channel using what? A ServerQuery?

    If you have a root-server a script (that runs at the server) that continusly queries the ts3 server via the ts3-serverqery could do that. cron could run the script on the root-server or the script itself does this. As mentioned above there was is bunch of scripts written in perl for TS2 that do that. So two ways to realize that:

    1. Rewrite Perl-Mod to TS3 compatibility
    2. Propose such a function (including auto-muting) to the devs in the suggestion forums.

    Such a functionality would be very cool in TS3....

    Auto move if idle won't be implemented by devs.

    Correct me if I am wrong but if I don't have a mic I am considered idle as I am not speaking right?

    if this is the case and you have someone who has no mic and is then moved to an AFK channel they will be moved every x minutes.
