Description of problem

Hi, I used to run a forum, and there's content on it that I need to remove for potential privacy and copyright violations. The forum has not seen use by its members outside of spambots for many years, and I am totally unable to access it to make use of my own user account and admin tools. I lack the means to contact other users as they no longer use the forum themselves, although it is still publicly viewable and riddled with advertising spambots.

I would like to know if there is any way I can regain access, or request a removal from this site.

Thank you for your reply. However, none of these help as I am not a founder, but rather an admin of the forum in question. I am unable to use the forum's feature that allows me to send a new password to my email address, and I do not appear to be banned in any form from it.

My primary motivation is to help myself and other old users remove personal information and images that they can no longer reach. I would like to know if there is any other way of going about this.

Hello sorry but if you are not the founder of the forum we can not help you with passwords and accounts.
on the other hand if you founder of that forum has been away from the forum for 6 months and 1day then we could give you the forum it's self but the problem we still have is you can't get in to the forum to get the data we would ask for and also you would have had to make a thread asking other members if they think you should take over the forum.

So really there is no way to help you on this matter.

also can you post the forum link ?
