Pretty simple suggestion; discord has the ability to let users moderate individual sub channels.

Pick one or two persons per group give them mod abilities in their specific channel so they don't need a staff member to pin and organize important resources information for their groups.

This will allow for easier planning, character creation, answering of questions, etc and will reduce the need for staff interference in individual groups.
 
I'm going to have a look and see if I can delegate further with a bot. Currently "Manage Messages" permits pinning, but also the deletion of any message in a channel
 
Manage messages permission is not being handed out sorry!

The bots I've reviewed so far are not particularly useful.

For now you'll need to continue asking staff for pins

I don't really see why it matters if there's a bot. A sub group of users can be made with minimal permissions allotted to them that allow them to manage messages. Most featured groups are run by long standing members of the community and are more than capable of being able to simply pin and unpin things, and should be trusted to not delete things. They also still wouldn't be able to delete admin messages if set up correctly...

100% right now I would trust these members.

However, the principal is that anyone can join, make and active group and become featured. It is not that case that I trust anyone to be able to delete any message in a channel and I don't want to be in a place where this is provided to some but not all featured group leaders.
