In progress Moving a forum

Post by mariah111384 on June 11th 2011, 8:07 am

Hello, I'm new here and my friend has a forum here and I was wondering how she can move the forum to another brand new one that I'm going to create? Can you move it to a newer one because people have gotten a hold of it and are spamming the current one and constantly registering to defame and spam? It would really help, thanks! Smile

Hi, it's not possible to move one forum to another forum if that's what you're talking about. The reason is because Forumotion does not hand out its databases. Smile

What does that mean? I can't move it? People are currently spamming and defaming the site. And I just want my friend to have a peaceful forums. Is it possible to change the name? Something?

Thank you, one more question, will that delete the posts and the forums once you change the title?

Changing the name does not delete anything.

Yes it does that I think. You'll need to wait some time before it stops...

So if I wait the original title will erase? But while I wait, the people who spam and defame the forums have bookmarked the new title. How long does it take?
