I don't think many active members of the Arch community know what that
group is. In fact, I am personally somewhat skeptical of Telegram in the
same way I am skeptical about WhatsApp. (It may not be run by an
unscrupulous social media company, but it is still a closed-source
server model).

What would making it "official" mean? Users are free to reach out to
other users however they would like to personally agree to reach out.
The forums and mailing lists we host on our own website are a special
case, and the IRC and reddit communities exist because many users wanted
them to.
