Changing Founder Abilities to Different User

Post by Histori on May 18th 2012, 1:10 am

It has come time for me to step down from my head admin position and hand it to a member who is on my forums more than I am. I am highly confident and trust that they will run the forums properly. I would like to hand them the head admin abilities without having to switch accounts. Help please?

For the member to have complete control, you will have to give him/her the founder account.

Histori I am looking for the same help. We don't want to wipe the original founder off the board as described in 1 of the options. Our founder is not absent at all. We want to transfer founder status but only for the "founder tools" that I as the tech support need access to.

I am the founder and agree with lindamarie's post. Is this possible to do?

So you want to give a member access to the Utilities Tool but not the forum's administration panel?

Hello,

I don't think it is possible unless you give them your founder account.
Founders are untouchable, they control everything in the site (Regular Admins are second to Founder)

So like I said I do not think it is possible at all.

I already have access to the admin panel but not to the founder tools. We understand that for tech purposes only we need to change my account to the founder account. However the founder stays part of the board. The instructions on changing founders does not apply to our situation. There were 3 options and none of them apply.

The only way is to give the founder account completely to someone. This includes also the log in information for the Utilities Tool. The original founder can log in to the Utilities Tool and change the account information for the new founder. If the founder wants to remain on the board, he/she needs to create a new account. The original posts by the original founder will remain, but if the new founder changes the username for the founder account the username in the original topics will also change. Posts can not be transferred between accounts.
