In progress Forum founder abandoned forum

Post by Unreasonable on June 14th 2013, 7:00 am

Hello, the forum founder abandoned a forum 4 years ago.  He left the administrative duty to me.  However I forgotten my password.  And the founder email is inaccessible, since the founder is homeless.

How can I solve this?

Hello,

There is a process that needs to be done for the founder account to be transferred to you or to someone else.

Let's start first with account, are you still the administrator of the forum(one who has access to the admin panel)? Also, did you try getting a new password via the 'Forgot password' links on the forum?

I am still administrator of the forum, who has access to admin panel.

I tried to get my password via 'forgot password' but cannot remember my email address.

It was 4 years ago since I logged in.

Did you try to check on each e-mail that you used, to find the new password sent from the 'forgot password' link? Check on the inbox and spambox as well.

I have checked my current emails and not received anything.

Ok, when did you use the 'forgot password' link? There might have been a delay of 24-48 hours.

I used the forgot password yesterday. However, I don't know if the request is going to one of my listed emails. It could be going to a forgotten email address.

Sorry, but I don't think there is something we can do about that, you should at least remember all the e-mails that you use and see if the password was sent there.
