Pass Down Ownership of Groups/Group Deletion

susan 12 Dec, 2018
I would like to be able to pass down the ownership of groups I am currently leader of. I have neither the time nor the inclination to continue moderating groups, regardless of their activity level. I am also a neat freak. Rather than simply ignore them, I would like to remove myself from them entirely.

In addition to, or instead of that, I would like the ability to submit a group for deletion. For example, if it has been replaced by another group, or if the group is no longer active and there is no one to take it over.

I don't expect it to be as easy as the click of a button; it would be a moderated action that would require group owners to provide a legitimate reason for deletion. There might also be a grace period for which the members of the group will be notified of the impending deletion and be able to make a case for a change in ownership, or simply to give the owner time to think over whether or not deletion is their best course of action.

Thank you for your consideration.
