Proposal
Disable /stop from working if you're not group leader
Justification
Any use cases for non-group leader being able to do /stop are niche and substantially outweighed by the negative impact the command has
Motivation
Every entertainer who's just starting out learns the hard way: the /stop command stops everyone's performance. This resets the timers of anyone in the cantina who's watching or listening to any of the entertainers in the group - which is usually all of them.
My proposal is simple: disable the /stop command if you are not the leader of the group you're in.

I don't think there are any use cases for this command being possible without being group leader that outweigh the negative impacts it has, and certainly nowhere near as often.

Just about every new entertainer that we bring in and train up learns the hard way that the /stop command stops the entire group - because it's not intuitive that it would do that. It's embarrassing for the new player and it's frustrating for the other entertainers when every patron's timer gets stopped because they didn't know any better yet.

Disabling the command for group members who are not group leader will still allow entertainers to stop their individual performances by moving, unequipping their instrument, or taking a similar action, without disrupting the whole group and everyone who's watching and listening.

This is the bane of our existence when training new entertainers and it is a well known rule that everyone breaches once while they are new. This change would improve the quality of life of the entertainer groups quite a bit since it only makes it so that an unintended command stops the whole group and resets all timers. Changing it would put a stop to all the awkward moments when all timers reset in a rush.

I think it's a wonderful proposal
