Two weeks ago, a mass deletion of spam accounts was executed. This, unfortunately, resulted in the accidental deletion of GoFoldersAdmin, which was an account formerly controlled by LennStar to manage the GoFolders group ( http://fold.it/portal/node/986119 ). This, as a result, ended up accidentally deleting the entire group. After pointing out this issue in a forum post ( http://fold.it/portal/node/987438 ), the group was reinstated, with *me* being manually assigned as the new admin. The problem is that, since then, the group link can only be accessed by me even though the group is to "open"-- this remains true even after I re-added LennStar to the group and made him admin.

==> Thus, no one can join or leave the group now, which really defeats its purpose. Since I'm not sure what kind of technical glitch is causing this, I would like to formally request the deletion of the group since re-creating the group from scratch seems to be the easiest way to fix the problem right now. [No, I cannot do that myself-- I would receive the "access denied" error. The idea with deleting the group is that LennStar can then re-create a new one later.]

sorry about that GoFolders, ilya.makedon will take care of this.

Thanks for you patience and understanding... hopefully this inconvenience was worth the decrease in spammers.
