    Please describe your suggestion or bug report
    My suggestion is that spycrabs need a middleman. Almost every time i go to the servers, there is someone arguing about losing/winning a spycrab. If we had a middleman requirement on all spycrabs, it would be easier for all the kids who want to do it.

    Most of the time there is not an eligible middleman on the servers. I've had occasions where I had to wait over half an hour for an eligable middleman. If all spycrabs on harpoon would require a middleman then there would be less spycrabs on the servers because of the insufficient numbers of middlemen.

    harpoon staff cannot focus on spycrabs only there is more things going like micspamm etc etc.
    on on top of that most staff have a irl duty for example school or job.

    while i understand your thought on this imo it is simply impossible to pull off.

    depending on the availablitily of the staff people would have to wait and wait.

    i think staff members would rather solve an arguement between spycrabbers rather then having to focus on middlemanning spycrabs with barerly significant value and abandoning the other dutys for it.

    you have to realize that staff members are humans and not machines they cant be everywhere at every given time

    Thank you for your suggestion, but making it so all spycrabs require a middleman will simply not and never work. While some spycrabs result in people arguing on who won, a staff member can easily check as to who won or lost. Even so, those instances are a result of lack of communication on the spycrabbers part (choosing first to <number> <wins/loses>). Another thing which would be a problem is staff. While we have a great staff team handling the servers and other aspects of Harpoon, adding another task to their plate such as this wouldn't be beneficial, as well as the availability of staff members when the crab is going to occur.
