Solved My Forum's Been Hijacked. Help?

Post by Wishful on December 31st 2011, 6:15 am

Yes so, I've found myself in a bit of a problem. bwi
Not sure Im posting in the right place either, but it's worth a shot.

I created these forums: http://thecomplex.forumotion.com/
And I ended up giving I believe two people admin powers. (This was a year ago so my memory is a bit fuzzy, but bear with me here.)
I did this because I was going to be away for a while and needed someone to run things for me. And I trusted these two people to take care of it.

Well one of these people, registered on my forums by the name 'Polygon', basically changed my password and made it so that I cannot reset it. I tried to and it simply won't let me. I'm registered on the forums as Bluemist.

Since I was the first user, and made the forums, can't it be proven by my email address that the forums are mine? (I registered on here with the same email address as well.) If so then can the other admins be removed and myself given the option to reset my password? I'm doing this because I've decided to reopen, but forgot that I still can't log in.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did you give them your founder account information?

I don't think so. Hm. What would that mean?
I think Polygon knows my email address, if that's what your asking.
I don't think I'd tell him anything else, he'd have to have found it through the control panel.
