Solved Founder Inactive, No Admins

Post by Hopalong on October 9th 2012, 2:51 am

Hi, I was an admin on my forum until I tried messing around with groups and accidentally removed all of the admins (including myself). So the only person who is an admin, is the founder. The problem is, he's getting close to Inactive (A little over 3 months since his last time logging in) and is not responding to any emails/PM's I send him. All I would like to do is either be added as an admin again or revert the forum to the most recent version (not sure when that is, so I'd prefer the first). Can anyone help me out here?

Hi,

Do you have access to the Utilities of the forum? Such as the Password/email used when creating the forum? If not, here read this: http://help.forumotion.com/t81878-recovery-or-change-founder-of-an-account

Because the founder has not been gone for 6 months and one day, the best thing to do is contact the founder.

@Sir Chivas - Unfortunately, I do not have the founders information so I do not know what the Founder's password is.

@slg - I figured that was the case. I have sent him an email about it already, but is there any way around having to go through him. I don't really like the prospect of having one inactive Forum Admin for the next 3 months.

Thanks for the help so far Smile

Are there any administrators that are still administrators?

So there is no member that has access to the administration panel?

I see, so then the only options you have is to wait 3 more months & 1 day, that way an Administrator here can take actions.

So the only options for now are that The founder logs in before 3 months and 1 day, or

Okay, can the Staff member confirm that waiting right now is my only option?
