Prevent Team deletion by mistake
We currently face often the issue that some team-owners try to leave a team. But for reasons i don't know they sometimes flip from leave team to delete team. And then they tend to not read the following Dialoge and set the checkmark and click delete. Then the Team is gone…
What i have in mind is to ask the user, like in MMORPGs, to write the Team name again manually in a Textbox before enabling the deletion Button. If they mean it to delete the team then it is ok.
If they have flipped buttons they will then read the text more carefully. Agreed?
Seen the problem first hand in our O365 tenancy. An Azure-AD recycle bin isnt enough. The deletion can easily go unoticed for more than 30 days. A Teams policy setting that allows admins to moderate requests for deletion of every Team would be ideal with the default set to ON.

Please remove the ability for team owner to delete the team and make it an archive function instead.
My two cents:-
Remove the Delete Team command completely. Replace it with Archive and only let Teams Admins "delete" a Team.

Same here, to many times I have to restore a Team. I think it is because of the placce where you can delete a Team.
My suggestion would be to place the "delete Team" in "Settings" UX wise. So the "normal" user can't delete a Team as easy as it is right now.

Or as a second thougt: It would also come handy if the Owner needs a confirmation of a second team owner before the deletion is progressed. Keep in mind that the current Process will lead to a deletion of chats, files and plans which could have been prepared in several months or even years and will be gone by "a moron in a hurry". I know we can restore a team, but i would like to prevent this, if possible...
Absolutely. There should be some sort of a small barrier to overcome in order to delete a Team.

User understand "delete" as remove from my Teams App. Make it really clear that it delete the content for all users.
