Look, I'm not even the owner of the group, it's still Emily's. She had a vision for the group's future when she returned, and she assembled the team to follow that vision. But then all the bad things started happening, to her, to the guys... There can't be a collegiate decision until we have the quorum back. Sorry.
If you want, you could always start a group of your own, you know? Then you won't be constrained by anyone else's problems.
