you could ask them for it back, considering that they're active enough for you to not steal it back, but i believe it only lets the top ranks "steal" it, so, what you can do to prevent future theft of guilds is set it so that only your mules are jr.s, and give lower ranks options to add/kick people

Invite people you trust. This was created so the guild can function when the leader is MIA or on hiatus. You cannot function on hiatus. Didn't you leave the forum?

The feature of guild takeover was added after far too many guilds were stranded by leaders that quit the game without bothering to transfer leadership. It's not for "stealing" guilds, it's for saving them.
The assumption was that a leader wouldn't junior someone they didn't trust.
All I can suggest is that you contact Customer Support at http://support-maplestory.nexon.net.
Personal tip: Try to avoid cursing at them or accusing Nexon of stealing. Politeness has a better chance of getting the GM to want to help you.
Try to show (with whatever screenshots you have) how you properly maintained the guild for years, and how this person who took over it is not beneficial to the guild.

But why 30 days though? and what if I'm going to take a vacation that's like 30 days or almost 30 days? 30 days is just a very very bad decision in my humble opinion.

Jez is not wrong, the 30 day period is a major problem. I'm not comfortable with that being a feature.
The only work-around seems to be along the lines of either not having any Jrs. at all or if that doesn't work we have to kick every member just to go on hiatus? It's not even reasonable. When they did the IGN sweep event they considered players that were inactive something along the lines of not playing since 2015 and being under Lv.35 yet for a guild Leader it's 30 days? That makes no sense at all. For some people 30 days is a vacation + quarantine and your 30 days are already up given the current circumstances.
Unfortunately I do not believe they can help you resolve it; however, I would highly suggest trying to request a guild name sweep for Lv.1 guilds that are inactive as of 'x' year(s) as an example. This might free up good guild names for you at least and might be a good way to start up a guild? If the Jrs. completely took over your guild and refuse to give it back maybe poach the older members you are close to. If enough leave it might convince the rest to move over.

A lowly low rank with virtually 0 contribution can take over the guild if the whole guild is long enough. PROOF: My Kinesis mule took over a guild when it has been deserted for 4 years.

Not saying i don't sympathize with you, but it looks like this was covered in the RISE update [v.214] in 2020. From the patch notes:
"If the Guild Leader is on a long absence of 30 days or more, the responsibility and permissions can be delegated to another guild member."
"If the Guild Leader is absent, the highest ranking guild member can become the Guild Leader. "
"Added notice that explains that 'if a guild leader has been absent for a long time, the permission to change the guild leader will be given to the guild members in order according to the ranks'."
If anything, i guess this is just a tough reminder to keep up to date with the patches : /
edit: apologies if i misunderstood the thread, at first i thought you didn't understand why it happened. but i see now its more that you disagree with the 30 days being the cut off date? 30 days does seem somewhat short for such a drastic measure. What would be the better solution though for inactive leaders? longer exemption time?

Nexon is not going to do anything about it, sorry. Nothing is objectively wrong, you are just taking it way too harshly. Someone in a guild where the leader went inactive chose to acquire the lead position. That's just how guilds work now.
