Could you make it so people you make admins can't remove the site owner as admin? Or if they do, the site owner has to approve it with an email verification? I find other admins be able to remove you from being an admin an issue.

I tested it with a membergroup I made that I called admins;they are separate from the default admin group. I used an alternate account to test removing my site owner account and I could remove the account from the default admin group. I am not sure about the site owner account not being able to be deleted, not planning to try.

Just to clarify, remove users from the default admin group or remove the whole member group admins?

I added my alternate account to the default admin group and then just clicked remove for my site account. I refreshed and everything and my site account was no longer a default admin.

In the moderation center, then looking at member groups, then clicking on the default admin group, and then removing my site owner account.
