I’ve noticed a group owner has not checked on their group in a long time. Can I take over group ownership?

If the group owner has been inactive for more than three months and there are no active group leaders, you can email to give you the ok to post a discussion in the group to start a vote for ownership. The caretakers will reach out to the group owner to see if they want to come back. If there’s no reply within 7 days or the owner says "Nah, not coming back", then the caretakers will review the thread and make a final decision.

If there are other group leaders in addition to the owner, they have ‘first dibs’ on if they would like to own the group. If you yourself are a group leader, you may have the option to take ownership, so be sure to email the caretakers to find out.
