Change founder?

In progress Change founder?

Post by Jellydonut on April 4th 2012, 1:10 am

When I started my forumotion forum, I was clueless at it. (I still kind of am though soo...)
Right when I made my forum, I didn't know how to change usernames, so I made my own personal account so my username didn't have to be admin. Well, now, 6 months later (yeah it took me that long to figure it out xD) I realize that I CAN change the founder/admin accounts username. But I already have a lot of posts on my personal account, so I don't want to start over.
I read a guide on how to switch founders, but it didn't help, because it was just a matter of changing the email, IP, and password. I want to make MY account the founder account. Is that possible? Or is there any way to transfer my posts onto the Founder, Admin account?

Hi,

There is no way to merge two accounts. Sorry.

The tutorial to change the founder is to change the user who is the new primary admin, current 'founder'.

So, if I'm the founder, but my main account is an admin, I can't switch my account to founder?

Thanks. That's the guide I was talking about, but it looks like I wouldn't be able to keep my main account if I did that.

The only way to change founder accounts is through that tutorial.

Okay
I know I can't merge accounts, but will using that guide let me keep my old posts? Or does it just change the username and email of the old founder?

If it's the same owner, ofcause, there's no issue there Smile

You can always allow one account to lay dormant if you wish...
