Request: change of group manager for western new york

Hi. There's a movement to change the Manager role for our group from me (@fending) to Nicholas Garafalo (@Eidolon Night) There has been the requisite discussion period and solicitation for feedback posted in our group.

I requested remaining in an admin role to help out, but Manager duties should fall to Nick as noted here and in the discussion: http://groups.drupal.org/node/285678

thanks!/BF

Expanding policy on removing group organizers

Currently, the only policy we have for removing group organizers on groups.drupal.org (GDO) is for abandoned groups. As the community and site grows, it's becoming clearer that GDO also needs a wider policy for removing group organizers. In some cases, we have orgaizers who haven't abandoned groups, but are otherwise harming the purpose of the site, facilitating collaboration within the Drupal community. In other cases, we have organizers of groups with no activity for over a year, clearly inactive, but we're still waiting 2 weeks.

Policy Proposal for Closed (by request) Groups

The Problem
We currently don't have any guidelines on when Groups should be set to "Moderated - membership requests must be approved." On our Guidelines for Forming New Drupal Groups page it just says "Almost all groups should be open. Use other choices only when there is a good reason for doing so."

Change ownership of 'United Kingdom'

Hello, I'm following the 'Abandoned Groups: Policy for Deleting a Group or Changing Its Manager' here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/39596

The United Kingdom group is effectively abandoned, I have followed steps 1 to 3:
http://groups.drupal.org/node/207453

And this is step 4, I now ask if you could transfer ownership of the group to me, and then I can add the other people that would like to be administrators.

Thanks!

Create a new "Jobs" group on g.d.o?

Currently groups.drupal.org has a "Job" content type available for content creators to use.

Due to the number of organizations looking to do hiring, the availability of this content type has resulted in an increasing number of Job content type nodes being posted into groups here where job postings reduce the effectiveness / usefulness of the group. Frequently (almost always?) the job postings are for positions that have very little to do with the subject matter of the group.

Template and sob story about denying vs. deleting vs. merging new groups

A group was in the moderation queue for a number of months and I just merged it with another group. Unfortunately, I did this before explaining in the moderation log what I was about to do. Deleting the group and merging it, of course, removed it from the moderation queue. Oops.

Here's the message I sent phunster, who proposed the group. It's here partly so that I have a template to reuse in the future.

Should all groups be "open"? What are valid reasons to make a group "closed"?

(Cross-posted because this is a g.d.o management issue as well as a g.d.o usage issue.)

I've noticed that several groups on g.d.o are set as closed membership (i.e., g.d.o members can't just join, they have to ask to join or be invited to join).

Very partial list of some closed groups, for illustration
