If a Faction owner goes inactive and cannot be reached, is there anything the designated leader can do except sit and wait for the Owner to come back online, or try and pull enough assets and/or members out of the faction to dissolve it? Is it too much to hope there is some length of time that can go by before an admin can intervene and change ownership?
It has been 10 days since I have received any communication from the Owner that appointed me leader and I am not entirely sure what to do about this weird limbo state.
In the very distant past, the ASims would sometimes transfer factions if the owner was inactive for a month or longer. I am unsure if that is still done, but you could discuss the situation with Gav or Arete when the time comes. Ten days is far too short for any action to be taken, though. If the owner has left you crippled, you are just stuck in that situation for the time being.
Typically, as Syn stated, after a month with no contact you could ask the ASims to look into it. They will usually then email the owner to see if they can return to retain ownership, or just make it over to the leader.
Thanks for the responses. Just for the record no I didnt believe that just 10 days was a long time to wait, I was just curious about the possibility (especially because he hasnt responded to emails or texts) and no one seemed to have a straight answer so I figured I'd go right to the admins.
