Solved Deleting Forum with Founder missing.

Post by Fafnir on October 1st 2011, 9:20 pm

Hello,
Our forum (http://bvscolbertnation.forumotion.net/) has been inactive for quite a while, so as the single admin left, I've decided to close it forever.
After deleting everything, I realized I couldn't actually delete the forum itself since I'm not the owner.

Unfortunately, our founder has been missing for a couple years, and nobody ever bothered to claim ownership in the meanwhile. I've already read the FAQ on switching owners, but I'm posting here because:

1) I don't really care about ownership - forum's dead. I only want it to be closed.
2) I never had a forumotion account before, so I don't even have to post count to send a PM to the managers anyway.

If any admin could please give a way for me to contact them, I'll gladly provide them with every detail regarding the matter. From what I understand, between the review of the case and the transition period it will take 2+ months to delete the forum forever, but that's fine since it really isn't going anywhere.

Thank you.

Hi, yes you are correct in reading our topic on changing the founder account and that you have to be the founder in order to delete the forum. You will need two posts to send a PM so you can reply here and then send your PM.

If your situation satisfies the requirements then the process can go ahead and as the new founder, you may delete the forum. However, if you still know the founder then you can contact them and ask them to delete the forum for you. Smile
