Can you demote the founder?

Post by AndyDS on November 6th 2010, 9:00 am

On one of my other forums, I'm an admin but not the founder.
Lately, the founder has been breaking the rules a lot and the rest of us admins think its not such a good example.
So is there any way to demote the founder?
Or even move the forum (with all the statistics and nothing changed) so that someone else could be a founder?

--Message me for the forum link, in case the founder just happens to be watching this post.

I have the problem that it is a club who have my forum and it was one member who was assigned to start it. The problem is that he did it in his name and not the name of the club. Is it then possible to overrun the founder of the forum though it is obvious that it belongs to the club?

He/She just needs to give you the password to the account for the founder tools and the forum account (Number one account) Then you change the email and password.

im having problems with the founder. we made fourm as a meeting place for an online game, long story short we fell out and he left our clan/alliance but is the founder of the fourm.

we post alot of information about the gameplay on the fourm and as he has access he has an advantage in the game. as silly as this may sound but this is a problem.

and before any1 asks i am aware of the 6month rule, thing is the account has been active today and we fell out over a month ago.

Please help Sad

You would be out of luck but you can try to contact the founder to give you the account info.

The only way to do it is to send him a specific keylogger o.O
(Don't take it seriously, but that's the only "illegal" way Very Happy)

thanks for all the replys

we treat all our members as equal's and do a majority rules vote on anything. we decided to give him the founder account as the original founder left... bad move i guess

i guess i will have to get a new page he will not give up the pass. he says he will delete the page unless we play nice.

Sad

time to get to work.... took me a few hrs to get the page the way it is now :@
