Solved New owner - Does new owner inherit all old owners posts?

Post by david f on June 27th 2014, 1:20 pm

Thanks for helping us change ownership on our site.

One slight problem is that that the previous owner made '000's of posts which now appear under the new owners name - which is a little confusing.

Is there any way that we could transfer these old posts to a different (new?) name?

Posts can not be transferred between members. You and the former founder will have to manually re-post the messages and then delete the old posts.

Thanks - I see.

For future reference, to avoid this problem, should we ask the new owner to mainly post under a different username? (Presumably they would have to post as the owner at least every 6 months to avoid the Forum changing ownership.)

That rule applies to the founder logging in. If the founder does not visit the forum in 6 months and 1 day, someone could try to have the founder account transferred.
