Hi - I have been part of a Football Forum for years, but due to the Admin getting bored, it appears today that they Forum has been deleted ! Is there any way in which to recover the forum and change the Admin?

Hello, Hello

The founder may perform a back up for his forum to restore it, and then the forum can proceed for a change of forum account. (The guideline is found on my signature)

Hi

Thanks for the replies

Sadly not.. I suspect the founder is not likely to restore it seeing as they deleted it in the first place despite people saying they would run it..
Seems a little childish if you ask me. I could set up another forum but would have no idea how to get in touch with the members who will sadly face the same issue.
Happy to send details of Forum if this would help in any way and open to suggestions

Thanks

Hello,

I'm afraid there isn't really nothing we can do if the founder doesn't choose to restore his/her forum and hand the founder account to someone else.

OK. Thanks. I have dropped him an email and hope he changes his mind.

Is is possible to start a new forum with the same url - seeing as the old one is now deleted - at least the people who try and sign on can re-register and we will start again?

Hello,

I'm not sure. Sorry as I've never heard of a situation like that, however, I think it's possible. You may try since our system will tell if it's not possible during the forum creation. Wink

Tried it.. sadly not Sad

the old Forum was ****.forumotion.com. It allowed me to select this option but then named the forum forummotion.com

Perhaps this will change in a couple of days when the forum deletes itself from your system

I thought the previous forum was already deleted? Either way, I'm not really sure. Sorry, however, as I'd mentioned, the system will tell if it'll be possible or not.
