Can admin2 take over and shut out admin 1?

Post by Webmister on October 26th 2013, 5:29 pm

A well known troll and forum owner, who have been very hostile to and chasing a very large forum, got some help and flattering from a new member as was appointed as a another admin. After a short while they fucked up her forum, erased all other members, made a new skin and new subjects.

Admin 1 blaims it on an innoncent opponent in a courtcase, but renewed her old blogg after 8 months, one day before her forum was shot down. So it may all be trolling, since she doesnt write a sad word about it and seem to be happy instead.

But if its real as it seems to be, I guess they can change her password and she can always get one back, but also need a backup or have to start all over?

Other administrators can not ban or edit the founder's account. The only way the founder account can be changed is if someone gains access to it. Also it can be changed if the founder has been gone for 6 months and 1 day if someone on the forum wants to be the founder.

I went in as admin 2 myself i 2 forums and can ban or delete admin 1.

I would just appoint a moderator to be safe.

If they delete her, can she regain it via you?

So am I, she claims she has been hacked and thrown out. I am trying to figure out what they did and what she can do. They claimed they have erased her name- and hacked her admin -accont.
I saw it may be easy as admin 2.
How can she come back?

If she has forums hosted by Forumotion then she is the one that needs to come here and ask for support.

Since this has to do with someone else, it will be better for her to ask for help. The reason why is she would know information that no one else would know.
