Description of problem

At first I want to apologize if this topic is in wrong place, I tried my best, to choose wisely the best one.

The problem is with founder on our old forum. Because of him we had to move on new adress which is http://deathcity.forumpl.net/. Back to the case - The founder closed forum and probably deleted our posts. There was our everything, and we want it back. Is there any chance to possibly get our old posts from old forum? I had an administrator (name: Elijah), but now I think I dont have it. Everything is just closed. I will be very thankful for all answers.

Hello,


The founder of the Forum is the one with the most power, if he deleted the forum, I do not think it is totally deleted, I think it might still in the database but simply deactivated and taken offline. I would wait for a staff member to reply. They will know more then me, I wish you luck in getting the forum back. Smile

The founder can do whatever with his/her forum. The founder is the only one who can restore a forum. Also data can not be transferred from one forum to another one. You would have to manually copy the information.

Sadly we hadn't any objections in this matter. We wanted members to manually transfer their most important posts to the new address. But now they dont have access to their own posts on old forum. Their hard work has been gone, because founder closed that forum. There is really nothing we can do? some of those people spent many hours on write stuff and now, when founder just took it, we cant get it back?

Not unless you can get the Founder to agreee to it and come on here himself and restore it. The Founder is the person with with all the power, its thier forum, if they coose to delete it, then they can. Sorry your members got caught in this, I really am.

Wait a minute, was the forum deleted or just closed? I asked because the forum loads with a message in a foreign language.

I really don't know, so maybe I will say what I saw:

First: we didnt have access to the forum. I saw a logo, and a message. (translation: on the orders of the most handsome guy in the world.) I lost my administrator permissions, but I was able to log to account, so the other members.

Second: logo dissapeared, and every member lost access to account. message was the same. That was couple of hours after first signs.

Third: today message has changed on big wall of text (particulary that was some hate on me, and the others people, I dont think its need to be translated, but its still there) We dont have access even to our accounts.

+ He didnt do it by himself. he gave his password to one of members of the forum, and that person did this from his account. (dont really know if this is important, but I said to be sure I said everything, just if more u know then maybe somehow we can have our posts back.)

And I want to thank you for all answers, maybe they are not so happy, but thanks for time u gave, trying help us.

Oh so his account was 'hacked' sort of... that is one stupid Founder! Rolling Eyes

I don't know, forumotion cam usually help with hacks (if requested for by the Founder), but in this case, the account was not really hacked so I do not know the policy regarding this. Sorry that this is happening to you and I wish you luck. :|

so this totally remind me one of the of the member account that was admin that gave his password to somebody and it took out the whole academy which is AKA academy. I suggest that you can only be the only admin that can use the admin panel. btw the user that attacked AKA is soulsilver and Krystan ramirez

This was not necessary. Please stop talking about other members and/or forums. It is considered starting a flame war.

The founder will need to come here and ask for help.
