No, you can't use your current password/email

You must use the password and email you used at forum creation

Just a question.
But if you have a admin you find suspicious, why are you allowing him/her to remain as a admin?

As far as couple people registering, it could have been anyone that found your forum or another member gave the link to them. So i dont think a couple new member would really raise anything for concern unless they was put in to admin group without your approval or knowledge.

But may be you will just want to set all account activations for admin to activate only, or even close registrations and you can register any new members your self.

Also check your security logs and see if the other admin changed/deleted anything

yeah well i dont know???
But i think If you were hacked you would know it.
And if you feel you can not trust a fellow staff member or admin,then best thing i can say is just remove them from the group until further notice,

It's your forum and you have to learn how to run it along having many responsibilities, As a Admin you will find you may have to sometimes make some hard decisions,So you have to choose and decide what is going to be best for you, your members and your forum as a whole.
