removing old groups
Weirdly, I have just gotten two tickets on Redmine that complain about the same thing: a new directory or chair of a CUNY entity is complaining because they have found a group that seems to consist of people in their position, but the group is defunct. I would imagine this has happened before, and my understanding is that we won't remove old groups without an admin request to do so. Is that right?

Is there a way for me to see who the admins are? Some of the groups are hidden. The groups I'd need to contact are:
Please add me as admin to both. Thanks!
As an alternative to removing the groups, could we make the new requesters new admins?

Generally we don't like to make these changes without first reaching out to the existing admins.
The admins of the groups in question are:
cuny-esl-discipline-council - https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/members/pjuza/
cuny-writing-center-directors - https://commons.gc.cuny.edu/members/jschneiderman/
I'd encourage you or the reporter to reach out directly to these admins. If they can't be contacted after some time, let's figure out how to handle group ownership.

We now have a request for removal from one of the admins:
Dear Commons Administrator,
Please remove the “CUNY Writing Center Directors” from the CUNY Commons.
I should have closed the group some time ago, and now it is causing confusion.

Matt, could you please sign off on this before I delete? There's only a single piece of content in the group (a cross-posted announcement from last year), so I don't think there's anything that would warrant a different strategy (like putting the group into some sort of hidden status), but I'd like your OK on this before an irreversible delete.
