Solved How delete names from forum? (Password-Email forgotten, last login 4years ago)

Post by DuckyWucky on April 9th 2015, 6:34 pm

Version of forum: Phpbb3
Permission Level on forum: Member/Guest; Former Admin
What browsers problem occurs: All
Who does the problem concern: Myself

Once upon a time (2010) there was an admin who cr8 a forum and posted stuff on it. After he didnt post anything anymore for like five years and the only stuff that gets anymore posted is spam he wants to remove the names from someone he knows in real, only problem he doesnt remember his password and the E-Mail account he cr8 it with, so what should he do, he asked himself?

He wrote an E-Mail to forumotion - No answer.
He reported it on the forum site down right under "Report an abuse" for like 10 times - Still no answer.

So he asks himself when will a forum finally get deleted if admin doesnt login?
Does one have to post illegal stuff on it so it gets deleted faster?
Does he need to pay someone for it? (black suitcases!?!)
What should he do anymore so that the names get removed from the forum?

[to show you where the names are in the forum im posting a screenshot from a forum that looks similiar:

Under in this example called "Off Topic", the detailed description under it, is where the names are]


Please tell me what to do. I dont know anymore. Thank you.

p.s.
I dont want to spread the forum link in public here.
Not that the names get even more spread than they already are. Please understand.
Ask it if you can help me by removing the names, I will gladly give it you then.
& yes I saw this thread:
http://help.forumotion.com/t12330-complaint-against-a-forum-how-to
but under the found link there it says:
"After validation, an e-mail will be sent to the administrators of this forum."
So its kinda senseless, admin wont answer, I was the former admin of it and theres no new one.

Hello,

If he is the Founder, following the steps in this tutorial will reset his password for him, then he can go in and delete the forum. http://help.forumotion.com/t127211-password-problems-or-lost-your-founder-s-password

However, he himself will need to create an account here and do it.

Hope this helps,
-Brandon

P.S The 'Report An Abuse' button only sends the report to the acp.... his acp which he couldn't access, it doesn't send anything to forumotion. If he wanted it deleted, all he had to do was come on here, it could have been much faster Very Happy.

that was a quick response, thanks.
Well the problem is former admin cant remember the "E-Mail of Foundation (not even E-Mail provider), Password associated with the admin account", like nothing anymore. His username probably is "admin" at least that he knows or thinks. Cant really remember anything, I mean who would it? It was 4 years ago.
I know this problem is kinda special ^^ sorry to bother you with it but maybe you can help me with it ^^

Well I would then wait for a staff member to reply then, I know with the forum url they can manually delete it from the database, so it may be as simple as a pm. I would wait for them to reply, but the Founder still needs to be the one to submit this request. So ask your founder to create an account on here.

Only the founder can delete the forum, so the founder needs to come here and ask for help.

Well Im the founder/creator of the forum and former admin from there.
Just felt like writing in third person above ^^
So how can we handle it so the names are going to disappear from the forum?
Cuz I as former admin dont have access to it, my brain just cant remember anything from login and E-Mail,etc. from four years ago ^^
The forum doesnt really have to be deleted, theres no activity and such besides spam posts from half a year ago but still the only thing that matters to me is that the names are getting deleted out of there.
Thanks for replying :3

Well as I said in my 1st post, you can have follow the tutorial and reset your password and then delete the accounts, if you do not remmeber your Foundation e-mail then if you provide your forum link, a staff member can look it up from the database and send you your foundation email address via pm, fro which point you can proceed in following the tutorial to reset your password.

No it can be deleted quite easily, but the staff need your forum url to look it up in the database and delete it.

I gave Url via PM to staff but they need me to know the E-Mail I used 4 years ago with which I registered forum. I cant remember it (my brain sucks at remembering stuff), cuz in meantime I cr8ed like hundreds of other E-Mail accounts (one E-Mailaccount for one purpose) so its useless to get it deleted I guess. Please delete this topic or move it to the trash, thanks. Humiliated me yesterday for it anyways already.
