Lack of administrators and moderators.

Post by themagus on January 1st 2012, 7:38 pm

Hi, im a member in my forum for several months now and we have no administrators...
well, its not that we don't have administrators, its that they never log in, they probably haven't been online for about a year, maybe more, from what i gatehred from the other users.
We have 1 semi-active moderator, and that's hardly enough.
Is there a way the forum of forums could make someone administrator or moderator? That forum really need more...
Thats the forum: http://horseisland.4forum.biz
If it is possible and could be taken care of immidiately, or very soon, i can offer myself and a staff member, i do have some experience in that, otherwise any other of the active members will do fine in my opinion.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks, though not all of it is simple.
First of - i don't know how to find the founder of the forum, its deep in the member lists and i just don't know who s/he is.
2- The agreement by the only active admin - ok, i got this part and im working on it.
3- I figure i can't get a list of the special users? Since im only a member?
4
Printing screen or a link to a story accessible to guests gathering the various written agreements obtained beforehand.
Does that mean other members of the same forum must agree as well? Or is it only apply for staff members?
Lastly - I don't seem to have enough posts on this forum to PM anyone (following the links in the menual). What should i do?

Edit: The founder was online for about 5 minutes 4 months ago, in august, to make a maintenance but other than that didn't log in for more than 6 months and 1 day, and i have the support of the active staff member on that, will i still get help or the '6 months and 1 day' rule can't be ignored in such a case?

The 6 months and 1 day rule has to happen. I would try to contact the founder.

Thanks for the understanding
I understand that hastening the procedure is a big request... This forun does need more staff though. If confirming this with the active administrator could help let me know so we could work something out.

I'de like it if more of my questions will be answered? :3

Forumotion is not going to appoint any administrators or moderators to someones forum.

It's up to the forums founder and other staff to add who they want to be staff on forums.

Are there any active staff members forum?
If the founder can not be contacted and has not logged in for over 6 months, then another staff member of the forum can come here and make a request to take the forum over as the new founder.

But Forumotion do not appoint forumotion staff members to other forums, You would have to find your own members to add as staff.

Hello, I'm the only active moderator on the site Horse Island. I do back-up what themagus has to say. I have tried to contact the admin multiple times with no luck. The site is big for me to handle on my own and it's even harder because I do not have access to all the mod tools as I was the last appointed mod before the admin went inactive. This was about a year ago. I do honestly would really appreciate it if, you could take this into deep consideration.

Take what into consideration?

To me the it sounds like you want forumotion to give you someone from forumotion to moderate/ run the forum.. LOL no forumotiom dose not do that. You would have to add your own staff once you have the founders account

Pm Sanket and ask him what info you need or how to go about taking the forum over. If the founder is nowhere to be found and has not logged in for over 6 months then you can take the forum over yourself.

If you cant run it yourself then you will have to find a few frinds or trusted members you can add to staff to help run it.

I am pretty sure we just have to send the request with your link user name and email address of the new person to take of the forum to the Godfather
Only the godfather will be able to do this for you. But i am not user exactly what is first needed.So try to pm Sanket and am sure he will know, If not then will justhave to ask Mario.
