Dungeon Defenders II game Status:
I made a suggestion (http://forums.trendyent.com/showthre...432#post393432) to change the columns in the game/shop selection screens that I think might help reduce this problem. By putting more information about the items available in a shop in the shop selection screen, vendors ought to get a higher number of relevant buyers visiting. So it would then be in their interest to list their AFK shop in the right section.
My friends often browse my shop in the tavern while we are forming a game. I would hate to have my shop disabled if I do not run an AFK shop. Don't punish the good people just because bad apples are abusing the system.
If you're forming a game, then you're probably also typing and moving around. Therefore there is input. Therefore no problem.

Anyway. Yes. "a few hours" is overkill. Make it 60 minutes, and have an appropriate message displayed. "We detected no movement from you for an hour. Your game has been closed. If you wish to host a shop while you're away, please tick the "enable AFK shop" box in your shop interface" or whatever.
Of course, this just means people will run something to spoof mouse/keyboard input if they're really dedicated.
