TL;DR : Should we create a new group, try to improve the current or do nothing?
(update: Option 2 happened.
was able to give me access to everything, planning commences)Have a link to the IRC chat
A year ago this group was founded in order to represent EquestriaDaily and the Dedicated IRC channel for art.
A year later the group sits there abandoned. But alive, as people pass through and leaving their art. But there is nothing beyond that. It's like the Everfree forest, moving along all by itself. The chosen ones who were to control the land has disappeared, leaving a single person with no real rights to keep tabs on the mess.
Should we fix that? or build a new and improved group? or just leave it be?
Recently there has been some talk in the channel. We want to step up the activity, both internally and externally. Starting with this group. But as mentioned the current leaders is absent and I'm the only one who has any interest in running the group. The alternative is to abandon this one completely, make a post now and then to have people migrate to a new group that might not come to exist at all.
In the best case scenario,
will show up, make me the founder so I can help fix the group.
2nd best scenario:
promotes me to co-founder, which hopefully gives me enough power to help fix the group.
3rd and far from best scenario: This group is left behind, activity happens in a theoretical new group and those who didn't get the memo will continue to use this group while all the features, affiliations and activity happens at the new place. Chances are the crew of EQD don't want a new "official" group to represent themself in Deviantart: so the case is lost. It's a matter of getting goodwill in other words.
