Solved Admin corruption and founder account changed.

Post by Freddy Fazbear on November 15th 2014, 8:40 am

(Is this in the right section?)Hello, I am dealing with alot of corruption among admins.They found some sort of vulnerability in our site, and changed the founder account password and demoted a few of the key admins to take over the site.I do not know if this classifies ad "hacking" but this is definitely a major problem.This is the site.

http://alphaknightacademy.forumotion.com/

I can give you the old founder account email and password upon request.

I have already been stripped of my admin and banned from the forum.Thankfully I do still have the forum's code saved on paste bin.I did notify them of me reporting the site, and that it could be possibly deleted if our admin privileges and founder accounts were not restored.Here is a screenshot. http://i.imgur.com/Xdg9se9.png

Okay, so the people I know who did this are, Vampyre, Führer Lunarnox, and Starfire. Here is proof from them speaking about it on another account, mind you "Eric" is Red-X and Dark Rose, who owns the site."Volk" is me, Freddy Fazbear. https://docs.google.com/document/d/127wd3DS7rQrXRYQvCbyd7t2xG2gCtTboRS4QlnqZqfI/edit

Please restore our site, and make sure only the Red-X account remains intact as admin with the previous email so we can recover the password.We didn't work a year on it for nothing, thank you.

An administrator can not edit the founder account.

Yes I know that, but that's beside the point.The corruption is still there, but even then I said that the account was changed.Don't believe me then use those admin powers of your's and check the old emails, I can provide them including old passwords.We need that founder account back, and it's very obvious that is wasn't our doing that changed it.Personally it is not my fault, more of the founder's, but I can't sit around and let it happen can I?So, where do I go to get help?Well here obviously.

Not to be rude but I must be blunt and state everything clearly.This is serious and I am not backing down until everything is restored.

Sorry, but Forumotion will not get involved when it seems just to be a issue between staff members of a forum. 

Did the founder give the account to someone else?

Yes, to me and one other, but it seems that one, which is Lunarnox, changed the email and password.Dark Rose and I made the forum ourselves, and if it's a problem with staff within the forum, and the people who actually OWN it are robbed of their site, this is where forumotion, by logic, get involved and stops it.If it can't be solved, then there is no point in making a site here at all if we cannot rely on YOU, who has the job to moderate sites and support people with problems, then who?Hackers?No I don't feel like getting banned and arrested.

If you cannot help, and all of us are banned, which we are, then how do we fix it ourselves?Do you see why I came here?I literally have no other options left.

Well, it says in the administration panel to never give out your account information.

Send this information to me by pm:
Code:
Forum Link:
Founder Username:
Creation Email:

I don't want to get involved too much, but I think SLGray's absolutely right on this one. No founder should ever give their account information to anyone. It says so everywhere: when you create the forum, in the e-mail the founder gets, in the welcome message, in the restore tools. IF SLGray can help you, you may find yourself to be a very very lucky dude today!

Well I'm not the one who made that mistake, but I am the one who needs to fix it, so yeah I would be very lucky, even though I do not believe in luck.

Never post email addresses on a PUBLIC forum.   I removed them from your post for safety reasons.

I can tell you that those are not the creation email.  If the founder account information was given out to different people then it is going to be very hard to determine who is the rightful founder.

One of the email addresses you gave was to another forum.

Yeah, he used it for a back up forum in case if any sort of error in coding happens we have a backup to restore it.
