In progress how do I know if I'm the founder

Post by wow99 on March 25th 2012, 1:56 pm

I have always assumed I was the founder of the forum as I have run the forum since 2007. The forum confirms I'm the founder. Does that make me the founder. I have to explain, when we set this forum up a friend of mine did the actual setting up of the forum as he was trying to help me, then handed it over to me. I do not remember how this was done back in 2007. Do we need his original password (if he remembers) to change the founder and get into utensils? as I can't get in with my password. He is still a member but no longer involved and I don't want to ask him for help how to sort this (although I have asked if he remembers the original password). He hasn't been involved since 2008. If we delete him as a member does that make things easier?

The forum confirms I'm the founder.

If you are the founder of the forum. Example: http://i.imm.io/k56f.png or check it in AP > Users ad groups > Special users

And you can't get into utilities you need to do this:

Thanks I am the founder after all.

As far as I know I have never changed the password (for the reason that I would probably forget).

Can I just confirm that:
I either need my email address? which I've tried both gmail and googlemail as I've changed it over the years.
I can use the forum's 'forumotion' name?

For the utilities you can use for the login: FORUM ADRESS
For the password: CREATION MAIL (the one you used to create the forum with).

If you don't know it follow that link I posted up to get a new pass.

You'll need to know the founders mail to get the new pass and the pass will be sent to your founders mail.
