GOOD for you! There are several groups out there that have gone to hell in a hand basket because of Absent Admins!

So many abandoned groups have become dumping grounds for just about anything.

I have taken on some.

You are now an equal administrator. Original admins are not removed when someone is promoted by flickr staff. What will your first administrative action be to revive the group that you could not do as moderator?

I have similar problems, been here over 12 years and inherited 31 groups over that time, none which i started myself
I have no problem with groups i am an admin for BUT 11 of the groups i was just a moderator. The major problem there is I cannot change anything, like number of pics allowed for example
the biggest problem and time consumer is when i want to invite a pic to one or more of those groups but the full list of 31 doesnt come up, only the ones I admin.
It is to time consuming to go to the moderated groups one by one to invite a pic, needs to be a full list of all the groups, to make it quicker and easier
