In progress Domain name expired - forum not accessible from old url

Post by Paull on January 2nd 2018, 12:47 pm

Re previous;

Old admins let domain name http://www.stationaryengineforum.net/forum expire.
However I can still access http://ryansengineforum.forumotion.com/login.
Given that 'cooling off' period is well passed can I now take over administration and let members access
via http://ryansengineforum.forumotion.com/loginuntil we sort out a new domain name?

Could you please advise on procedure and any associated costs ?

Many thanks - and Happy new Year!

Hello,

I can access the forum from the free url as a guest. Wink

Hi Brandon,

Firstly thanks for your swift reply.

1) I don't care about becoming the founder unless that is necessary to proceed.

2) I have tried to contact the previous admins in the past but get no replies so I don't see how I am going to get their written permission now. Is that a prerequisite?

Well if yes its nessecary cause only founder account has access to domain part of the acp I believe.

If you read the topic, if the founder has been gone 6 months and 1 day, you can request to take over the founder account.

Hi Brandon,

I did indeed read topic but item three states "Simply fill in the same conditions as above, plus this one:..."
which seems to imply that I need cooperation from previous admins
BTW what is acp ?

That is only if there are other active admins on the site. If there are none, then 3 doesn't apply.

Acp is an acronym for the admin panel (stands for administrative control panel to be precise). Sorry probably should have been more clear on that, sorry about that sometimes I forget not everyone knows what it means.

If there is no other staff members, you need to create a poll/topic  on the forum and let the members agree/disagree about the change in the founder.


When your topic has been solved, ensure you mark the topic solved.

Hi,

As far as I can see there has been no activity by the three admins for nearly twelve months. However, a poll might not get much response since most members would not be able to see it as they would use

www.stationaryengineforum.net (now expired)

rather than

http://ryansengineforum.forumotion.com

Any other suggestions?
Thanks
