Want to take ownership over abandoned (as seems) team

Postby pasaf » Sat Mar 23, 2019 9:55 pm

Hello,

I would like to take ownership over Folding@UA (#224627) team if anyone don't mind, as I see it was inactive for a while and I can't find any stats on its current owner (iota6manny).

Is that possible?

This team appears to have only one member, and that appears to not be you. Unless you can show a connection to the team, it will not just be given over to you.

P.S. In the case of this team UA does not appear to be related to the origin of your post.

Ok, now I'm member of the team. What's next?

I am going to recommend you create your own team if you want one connected to your country. Or join one of the ones that already exist.

The person who created and named the team did so to link their folding contribution to a particular organization which is not your country as you appear to assume. I hinted at that in my first post, now I will be direct - you have no prior connection to the team and I will not forward on your request to the PG members who would assist in giving control to a team to another member if the founder was no longer active. They also would see no prior connection. UA in this case refers to an airline that I would assume username "manny" may have worked for, not Ukraine.

Maybe you don't understand that, but on your decision to not help may rely my decision to fold.
I don't want to create group with different name, because idea which captured me completely relies on exactly that name of the group.

Then, I will be blunt - don't fold if you need a specific name belonging to someone else. Basically what you are wanting to do is take the product of someone else's work and use it as your own.

Then the best thing you can do, is contact the owner of the group, and have him pass on the group's password, so you can register yourself as the admin;
or become just a member of this group.

If you have no way to contact the owner of this group, I would believe FAH would never transfer the group to you, because it would violate the ownership rights, of the owner of that group.
Or something in lines of that...
I'm not affiliated with FAH, just a member like you.
