Wait for 7 days, lets see if he is just talk or has actions to do it.

If he does anything come back to this forum & retrieve your password.

Then do a restore on your forum by logging into the utilities.

If he has to hack, it won't require 7 days. Just don't get bothered, you can retrieve your forum back.

Let him threaten otherwise, he can't do anything unless he got the admin's password, if some else happens, use the back up tool found on my signature Wink

just ban him if he comes back just keep banning him.
be sure to have a large and complexed pass word as well.
but also make sure it is something you will remember

then you can tell him to come here and try talking that garbage geek

I just love how these so called hackers say I will take your forum over in 7 days. If they wanted your forum or account they would do it right now they don't need to wait 7 days. Just ignore the user and move on. Anything happens just come back here and we will help you out.
