In progress Lost A lot of Content

Post by Aitchy on June 20th 2012, 1:36 pm

I started a forum with someone a few months ago, he was the founder of the forum but I was running it (He was Awol) had lost interest. I was juggling running a game server and moderating/posting on the forums that we set up.

So long story short, I had changed some appearances on the website since he was awol and he got upset, 30 minutes later he had seemingly deleted all the forum and posts from 9 weeks and over 100 registered users. You can view the post he left which has forced me to found a new forum in the links below,,,, basically the guy is a 25 year old throwing a toddler tantrum about a website he had lost interest in a long time ago.

Yes he founded it, but I had put all the work in establishing the forum and dealing with users, now I have had to start a fresh and lost all the posts/topics we had and having to get users to re join the new empty forum.

If you register on the old forum you will see the post he left, showing you his reasons for deleting all the the posts etc (its pretty pathetic)

This is the new forum I have had to set up
http://projectm.forumotion.org/

I really wish there was someway I could get all the work/posts people had put in from the old site and back on the new site, all lost by a man who threw a wobbler because someone was upkeeping the forum and actually not losing interest in it.

I dont know if he has deleted everything or just hidden it all, either way we wont be using the old forums again........ So sad all the work people had put into it was lost.

For example, he was founder and he had gave me admin access for the control panel... he had 100 posts mostly from the start 2 months ago,, as of few days ago I had 450-500 posts on the website. And was basically the one who was running the forum

Hey !

I dont think that is possible to get them back, i seached and searched on my AP for somekind of a trashcan or something. But i didnt find anything, if he have deleted everything then i am afraid u must just work as hard as u have done and get ut back up again !

If you are wanting to recover lost messages/posts, you have to be the founder to do a back up. If you are wanting to also transfer the lost posts/messages, they can not be transferred to another forum.
