What Will Happen To Your Forum?

Post by Asriel on May 24th 2013, 11:05 pm

OK, so...I am thinking this on a broad spectrum. But picture this, you are 40 year old person, you got married earlier, you have kids, you have a job, you no longer have time for your forum and you are the main admin of the site. What will you do? Razz

I'm currently in that situation, but i make time for my forum. It's all about managing your time. Whether it's a few minutes a day or a few hours. BTW, I'm the only Admin at my board. So , I'm responsible for it. You can always find a moderator to keep an eye on the forum for you also. Wink

I'll add to what I said in my last post.

Generally I'd keep an eye on the forum as I wouldn't give up the founder account right away as we've all read horror threads about what can happen.

So I'd keep an eye on it and give all admins my contact info so if they needed me for anything then they could contact me.

I'll hire an extra admin who has time to act as co-owner. Of course, I'd come on whenever I could to.

I just would keep an eye on the forum since I'm the admin.

You have a few options:

give your founder account to someone else you trust, if they abuse this you can always use the utilities program to restore user account information.

Hire some more admins to help look after the site and check - in when you can

Or you can delete the forum for know until you have time again and restore when you do, inform the other members.

Finally you could create a theme back up of your forum and one of the current admins makes a new site using that back-up

I would hire some staff. Mods to make sure everyone is following the rules, global mods to delete posts and ban users and bots and another co-admin to ensure everything is running well....I couldn't just shut my forum down lol. I've spent too much time getting where it is now to just close it and we are just starting to get enough members where we can do fun things and not just the same people posting!

I have an extra admin on my forum. This person is someone I met on another forum and I we got to be friends on this forum before I ever created my own forum. So I had time to get to know them and learn to trust them before they were given administrative rights on my forum.

Anyway, I had made someone else admin just in case there ever came a time when I couldn't get online for whatever reason.
