Solved Deleting An Old Forum

Post by BrandonBeckmanBB on March 23rd 2015, 4:03 am

Greetings, everyone!I've been presented with a puzzle, and I would like to see if I can receive some assistance. I have a phpBB forum from 5 years ago which I would like to delete. However, my email address at the time and my username have been deactivated, so there's virtually no way of logging in it seems. In addition, I have a security feature enabled that disallows the admin of recovering the password. Although, I'm fairly certain I have the correct password. Thanks in advanced!

Brandon Beckman

I appreciate your help, Brandon! But I don't think this is password-related. My suspicions have been confirmed; I do have the correct password. This problem has to do with my email and username. Both of these seem to be deactivated, my email being permanently deactivated.

Thanks again!

You do not need to change the creation email. Just change the email to the forum founder account and delete the forum from the administration panel.

Hello,

Just to clarify, you're the founder of the forum right?

I think we could simply the problem by sending me the following information via PM:

Code:
The Foundation Email
The URL of your forum

I'll then put a request for your forum to be deleted, it'll be easier than trying to recover everything. If you'd like to go down that route then let me know.

I already sent a PM to Buttercup. The forum is now deleted. I apologize to cause you guys any work that was deemed superfluous. I'm grateful for the quick responses, you guys are cool in my book Smile

Thanks again!
