 It seems all at once my group went from having active members to only 1 or 2 a dad. My admins seem to have falen off the planet, wont return my ims. It is getting really frustrating. I dont know what to do. any advice would be great.

 I've had that happen before. I demoted the ones who wouldn't respond to my messages, and then got new ones.

Write them and say you wanted to make sure everything was ok with them... If they don't respond back demote them. Find new ones.

To pick up in your group on being active try out some games or just posts asking questions.

This is a very busy time of year, graduations, weddings etc...   Keep messaging them & if you do not get a response within the next two weeks, you'll have to get real help!

I must be a hard butt, if my admins (which they have never) didn't work the group with me, and didn't answer my msgs I would definitely demote them. If someone has got to be out of the group for awhile they could at least tell you what is going on. JMO

Ours are doing it too. Frustrating for sure sometimes.

IDK but I think it might just be summer cause it seems a lot of groups are slow right now (which is frustrating too to a group owner! OYE!)

Good luck!

I usually have an MIA post in my Admin forum or encourage my admins to use our group calendar (and set it for Administrators only viewing).  They will usually post if they are going to be away for an extended period of time, going on vacation, had a baby and need some time off, or just won't be around on a specific day.  If it's an emergency - they have my personal email too.

Just make sure they have every opportunity to communicate with you, and if they don't within a week - I would say demote them.  But let them know that you are demoting them because it seems they are too busy for the group and if they ever want to come back, the door is open.
Sometimes people just don't have time to get on the computer, but a week should be enough time to let you know what's going on.

 Nope! That's what I'd do too. Communication should be give and take with the admins. If they are away and won't be around for a while...you should know that too. Demote and Renew! Good luck...that must be frustrating.
