In progress Administration of a Forum?

Post by PhoenixWillow on November 20th 2016, 10:19 pm

Hello. I'm a representative of DRF at www.rpgdragons.com

Recently, one of the admins has been extremely abusive and unfair to multiple members, has banned several people for no reason, and has generally been very rude and controlling in regards to the site. She stole the site access from it's previous owner, and now has demoted all other admins, and has monopolized the site. Many of the members want to get her removed, but we are unable to, and thus are coming here for help. Is there any way I can submit all of this evidence and attempt to get her removed? All of the members involved realize that it would be easier to leave, but many of us have been on this site for multiple years, and aren't willing to simply leave. I guess my main question is how to report this, and if we can actually get help at all, or if everything is simply a lost cause.

If it helps, she isn't the original owner. The original owner left a long while ago, and his replacement was replaced by another person. This third person was the one she tricked into giving all access of the owner's account to.

I apologize if this isn't where this belongs, or this is perhaps stated somewhere else. I attempted to find information on this and I either missed it or it doesn't exist, as I couldn't find anything on a situation like this one.

Sorry, but the founder or who has the founder account can do whatever they want. They just can not break the Terms of Service.

She wasn't ever meant to get her hands on it, however? For lack of a better term, it was stolen from the person who was meant to be the owner of the forum. Are we really unable to do anything?

We have contact with the first replacement, and she has contacted the founder. He gave her the founder account, but when she was unable to do anything, he tried to access it himself and found that the password and email were both changed.

We can only help the founder with log in issues. He/she will need to come here and ask for help.
