How do I ban a spammer without being an administrator?

Post by Gustav LeGrand on Thu 30 Aug 2012, 00:54

There's a spammer on this forum, and he's posting explicit material everywhere. I am a moderator there, and I can't ban them, as the only administrator has left the forums, but since it hasn't been 6 months, I can't take over. The forum itself is of an appropriate topic but this person is going to get the forum deleted.

Please change the title of your topic, that is related to your question/issue, so that other users will be able to find their question/issue using the search engine.

Are there any other administrators?

No, there are only 3 moderators including me. One hasn't been on since December and the other one hasn't been on for a long time either.

You could try to transfer the founder account to you. The forum will have to meet the requirements - http://help.forumotion.com/t81878-recovery-or-change-founder-of-an-account

►The founder must be absent for at least six months and one day.
That is her last connection should go back to that date.
Wed Mar 21, 2012 10:52 am

► If there are other administrators or moderators you must provide written agreement stating that they accept that you take the status of the founder.

Do you see at the bottom of the spammer's profile the link that says Ban Member?

I've emailed them about four to five days ago and I haven't gotten a response.

Sorry, maybe the founder has not read the email.
