locked Re: Group transfers


 

Marlin,

In the process of proving to you that a person is an owner of an
existing group, how would you distinguish between whether the person is
actually the owner or just a moderator?
In Yahoo Groups there's very little distinction between an owner and a fully privileged moderator.

I would bet that there are countless numbers of groups where there are
moderators who would just love to steal the group from the owner.
Perhaps, but in such cases the owner would need to have limited those moderators' privileges just to retain control of the group. If the owner didn't give the moderator the privilege to change group settings then that moderator wouldn't be able to make the change to the description Mark proposed. And an owner that suspected that a moderator might want to steal the group wouldn't likely give the moderator that much privilege.
