Betrayed by trusted Admin

Post by TerryAhn on September 2nd 2010, 3:04 pm

Hey Forum motion administrators.

I'm Terry, founder of the website www.lolaustralia.com hosted by forum motions. I'm going to cut straight to the point. I've been blackmailed by a trusted admin that I promoted on my site. He deleted my forum account and IP banned me from the ventrilo server that is connected to our website/clan, so I have no way of getting into contact with anyone.

I want to make it clear that I am the founder of this website. I am aware that there is a founder account that controls all other admins. When we made the website/clan, we had 3 leaders, I was in charge of making a website which I did. I created the founder account and the email I registered it with is still within my accessibility. However when the site was first created we agreed on sharing the founder account amongst the 4 leaders, because there were things only the founder admin could do. I agreed and all 3 of us had the ID and PW to the founder account, and I created a new account which was promoted to admin status (which I used as my normal account).

FYI: I just tried to send a new pw and I got the message

The security 'Disallow admin to send new password' is active in Admin Panel > General Admin > Security

He disabled everyway I can get the pw back so I really need an administrator to reset it for me please. There should be no problem if the pw is send to the registered email of the founder account.

As time passed, we promoted another person to Moderator. That moderator then promoted himself to Admin and attained the founder password and ID. He then changed the founder PW, so the original 3 leaders currently don't have access to the founder account. When I got into a conflict with him tonight, he used the founder account to delete my forum account and IP banned me from the ventrilo that is connected to our website/clan, so I have no way of reaching everyone. I managed to get into contact with 2 of the original leaders and they are trying to get the founder pw from him, so I can restore the order.

Basically the I am the founder and creator of www.lolaustralia.com, and the founder account is in the wrong hands and he used his powers maliciously. The only thing I have at this point is the email that is connected to the founder account, which only I have access to.

I need my forum either restored to me, send me an email of a new/reset PW to the email that is registered to the founder account of that website, or please have it taken down.

I am aware of this option but it says I haven't reached the post count to send private message and I don't know what the post count is.

Ah thanks I just realized and sent in a private message.

So as long as I have access to the email registered to the founder of the website, I can get my pw reset correct?

If you have access to the email address that you used to make the forum then yes, you can get the password reset.

You can also visit one place but you have to log-in with the original email and password. This willl allow you change the founder account.

Yup. Original email and original password. Then there's an option to access the Admin CP in case of an emergency. I'm not sure on how to log-in to that part.
