Solved Founder hasn't been on, need admins

Post by Mr. Eddster on February 22nd 2012, 11:44 pm

Hi our site is approaching what is expected to be a busy day (February 27th, NHL trade deadline day), and our founder hasn't been on in 2 months, we try emailing him and all sorts of other stuff, but he lost his password, and can't get on... is there ANY way someone could reset his password? I had the setting that anybody could reset their password on, but when he does it, it says the option is on, even though I quite clearly made it so that the founder and admins can reset their passwords...

Anyways, is there any way someone could reset his password please? We need to add catagories and updates to the site but we do not have any admins anymore...

The founder needs to come here and request a new password: http://help.forumotion.com/t93821-lost-founder-s-password .

Ok thank you. We've been trying to get a hold of him, i've even put a catagory in for him to look at to go to this site, so he's kind of abandonned us. I will try to get him on here.

Is there any way I could send that PM to Mr. Mario or someone else? I am the top poster on the site, and I pretty much made it to what it is today.

Edit: I PM'ed Mr. Mario yesterday about this, and it says he has read it but has not responded. Razz

I've sent a password reset, but was not aware of you weren't the founder. I can't change the founder. You'll need to wait 6 months for founder change.

Ok thank you. You sent the password reset to his email? He said he never uses that email, and that he made it that day...

Mr. Mario I would be well eternally greatful if there was a way you could send his re-set password to MY email so I can access his account. The site needs to be update quite a bit, and it needs admins as were approaching a busy day here soon. If you want I can get a close friend on here to say to you that it would be OK to give me his account info. He actually let me access his account once to do all the stuff to the site, and we were buds until he abandonned us.

I can provide any proof you need, but can you please, PLEASE send me his reset password? All of our regulars would be very grateful Mr. Mario!

If he wants a password reset, he must come here himself and send me a PM.
