What Does Being AFK In Roblox Mean?

Being AFK means that the user is Away From Keyboard. They may be out doing other things while farming for specific items in a game, or just trying to rake in as many donations as possible in specific experiences. For example, in Pls Donate, players may use an auto clicker or another program to keep their window active so they do not time out, but plan on staying in an experience for as long as possible to rake in plenty of Robux.

With other experiences, however, being AFK means that you should respect their avatar and not attack them. Let us say you are in an intense game of World of Stands, and you come across a player who mentions they are AFK. You could either ruin what they are doing and destroy them, or you could let them be so they can come back to what they were doing whenever they can finally return. Something could be going on that they need to step away from the game for a bit, so do not make things worse than they need to be for them.

There is plenty of slang that is used in Roblox, but AFK is one of the most commonly used. This particular bit of internet lingo has been around for quite some time, dating back to the 1990s. Just be sure to mention that you are AFK if you plan on stepping away from your PC for a little bit.
