Abandoned Forum Issues

Post by Gustav LeGrand on August 30th 2012, 10:18 pm

The forum that I used is clearly abandoned, and it's turned into a spammer breeding ground. I am a moderator on it, and the other two moderators have left. The admin hasn't been absent for the 6 months and 1 day that they have to, and I (moderator) and two other members (regulars) are the only ones there. There's no point of deleting the posts because they'll just re-post it. What should I do, I can't get permission from the other mods because they've left, and so has the admins. There is explicit material everywhere and we can't get this person to leave. Please help?

Happy for Rideem3 for having 4-666 posts!

Anyways. I'm sure he wants to get rid of this spammers and I am guessing he wants to be the founder of the forum since the admins and the founder are gone. So he wants to take over.

Hi,

According to your former/current (other) topic, I can conclude you got no other choices other than telling an administrator about it. Seeing as that the support moderators also are nearly about to say that (I suppose) Wink

Sanket's or Leeloo.

About taking over, you already know the requirements. Wink

Good luck.

I have a similar situation on my forum. I am one of two administrators. The other is the founder of the forum. Unfortunately, the founder has been missing since November of 2011, and I cannot get a response from her through e-mails. I see no other recourse but to take over the forum. There was one moderator, but she had expressed her wish to leave the forum, so I removed her from the mod list.

It seems I need a number of posts in this forum to contact someone here at forumotion, so that is what I am trying to do. If someone can give me any advice I would appreciate it. Thank you.

There's a very standard operation procedure for such a process here. Sometimes much harder than you'd think.
