TLDR; The group's not dead.
I feel you all deserve an official update on the group's current status.
The current founder appears to be AWOL. No concrete news on what happened to them.
The old founder is unable to grant anyone else the founder position because the current founder's account is still technically "active".
I still have a sufficient amount of permissions to keep this son of a bitch going. I ended up unintentionally kind of getting the position I was going for anyway, lol.
