So I'm currently developing the afk function, it ties into a lot of the other functionality and would like to sort this out asap. I need you, the community to help me decide what to do. At the moment if you afk, you will gain site of both teams etc.. I would like to rid us of this, Below is a brief description of what -afk will do in my version.

-afk typed in the middle of a round as Sheep or Shepherd:
All players on the players team who aren't a computer will acquire shared unit control of said unit.
Once the round ends that player will be added to the afk force

-afk typed during intermission:
You will be added to the afk force.
When a player is added to the afk force they will experience the following:
The player can not be picked until they are back.
They also are unable to see anything until they are back. A message will be displayed to alert the player that he or she is afk and will show a message telling them to type -back.
Once they have typed back, it will alert them telling the player that once the round ends it will allow them to be picked, will also give an estimated time for max time(the time sheep have left).
It will also give that player the max Sheep count currently available.

-afk can not be typed during a round in autohost mode.

Now for those who would like to spectate competitive matches as referees.
At the very start of manual host(The first 60 seconds), Two players will be able to be selected as referees by the host, that is only if there are 12 players and those players accept that they are referees.
Referees can't play ever, they can only spectate, a referee may be assigned host control. Also I'll be adding referee commands later on to get statistics about the game. Referee will also be improved in later versions by being added to a hcl command in hostbots.

If there are any concerns you have, please submit them below. If you think it's a good idea, or perhaps you have other ideas for -afk command, submit them below also.

NOTE: I AM NOT GIVING UP ON THE MAP, IT IS JUST TAKING LONGER THAN EXPECTED! The map will Revolutionise Sheep Tag. Everything I add in terms of game play functionality is subject to changes/balancing. It will be ever changing until a stand alone Sheep Tag is made, even when that is made, ST will still be given the updates on wc3 that the stand alone is given.

I really like this idea because AFK abusing is really annoying for the guys who never do it (me + some others).

Some people are bound to rage about this, though.
We don't need no girls in our DotA team.
