Problem with an admin

Post by rostaria on July 2nd 2011, 4:56 pm

Hi,
I set up my board a week ago and I approached a friend of mine who has had experience in designing and running a forum and asked if he would like to join my staff. Originally he was just to be a moderator but, I decided to promote him to admin. The thing is I am really beginning to regret it.

He wont welcome new members, he only responds to topics mainly with the words "I agree" and actually refuses to begin a new topics except when its to show off something he has designed. Also refuses to respond when I am PM him.
The main problem was yesterday I took the board down for maintenance because, I wanted to add some features and arrange my members into groups. I had been working on it steadily for about 3 hours and then glanced at the board and saw that members were still posting. I got very confused because I was sure I had took it off. I went into the admin section and saw that someone had reactivated the board. When I asked him whether he had done it he said no. I informed him that I hadnt done it. He then said well your board must have been hacked. Which clearly wasnt the case.
I am not sure what to do. He has done alot for the board. I.e design the logo, some of the graphics but he just seems to not listen to what I say. What do I do?

Are you an admin to? I think when it comes down to it, the original creator is still the superior admin. If you feel he isn't reflecting the way you want your forum managed, you can always bump him down a peg.

If you're not getting new members, then he's doing your forum more harm then good.

The final decision is up to you, but a forum with no way to get any new members will not last.

Well the one thing no one ever does in any situation is actually confront that said person. Communication, that is the key.
