Solved Admin abandoned forum

Post by Summer70 on June 12th 2015, 11:42 pm

The founder admin and all the mods have abandoned our forum, they've been gone for over 2 years now. Is it possible for forumotion to promote a member to mod status or admin? What are our options?

You can't become Admin without the Founder's permission. No if's, and's or but's.

However, you can create a new forum here.

Actually your wrong. You can claim the forum founder account if they and any admins have not been on in over 6 months!

You would be using option 3. I've had to do this with our forums lately tho we still had admins on.

Good luck!

Well I for one just want to say that it may not be that Founder's personal fault, I was away from my forum for 2 years... However this was not my fault as life made it impossible for me to access any part of the web for that period. Not because I abanonded the forum, but because I had no choice and no way to access the web. As soon as I was able I immediately went back to taking care of my forum. I would encourage you to either move on, or wait and be patient. I know how it feels. I know I would have been pissed if someone had hijacked my forum because of a leave I had no control over.

Thats a very valid point. He could just offer it back to the original founder when they come back. We took over ours cuz the original founder passed on the torch of our minecraft community to me and my friend. But never gave us founder access. And until recently when one of our forum admins had a brief security breach on his end, we were like, OK NEED TO DO THIS NOW. We could have lost full control of our forums in minutes and no way to gain it back.
