Solved Moderators have left the site!

Post by grace8136 on October 18th 2013, 10:15 pm

I am a moderator on one site, but post on another as well. The moderators for that site left in August with no mention of what is going on. If I had access, I would go in and archive and tidy things up. Many of the members have tried to contact the mods to no avail. Who should I talk to at forumotion about this? It's a big site with a lot of members, so it's really surprising!

How many posts do I have to make before I can send a PM?

You need to have a minimum of 2 posts before you can send a PM.

OK thanks! I just sent one to Buttercup. Do you think that's the right person to ask about it?

I believe so, you're requesting a change in the forum founder/administrator correct? How long has this forum been without staff activity?

Since the middle of August. It's starting to get spammers and needs a bunch of archiving. I worry they are getting sued, so maybe I just want to temporarily clean it up for them and not tie myself to it?? I'm hoping someone from forumotion can find out what is going on. If they just got tired of it, there are members that know how to use the administrative panel and are willing to take it on.

Try to contact the founder of the forum. If the founder has been gone for 6 months and 1 day, you can change the founder account.

The mods are the founders. Can we get some administrative help with archiving and spammers in case they don't come back? It has been 3 months. Also, if they own the domain name, does that mean even the 6 months, 1 day doesn't apply? Many of the members have been trying to reach them. It just seems really odd that they aren't responding to anyone.

Sadly until 6 months and one day has passed forumotion aren't likely to be able to do anything.

There are certain things that only the founder can do, so you will have to wait for the time period or see if the founder returns.
