This may be better suited for a plugin but I have an instance where I’d like to have some form of an indicator on my username/avatar that tells users I’m out of the office. It would help set expectations on when to expect a response. There are cases when I see a new topic created and some frequent back and forth between the OP and others but then all of a sudden the OP disappears for a few days or a week. When they finally do post, they feel obligated to say “Sorry. I was out on vacation.”
This could also be helpful for solo developers who use Discourse who run support categories. It would help users see that they need to rethink expectations on a response.
So I’m asking about some form of “out of office” flag on the username that could be set via user preferences.
