I see three ways if the founder wants to leave, but what if the founder wants to stay, and we want to change the founder to a "admin" account?

Well that I believe would not be possible, unless the founder creates a new account for himself & is given admin access.

We have an admin account already(this is another website throug forummotoin, not PIFreef)
the problem we have is when the club is turned over to the new president, the new president won't have access to the buy/spend credit or the founder account in general. To prevent this from happening next time, we set up an account as admin and gave that account admin rights, so every time there is a change of leadership, the old leadership only needs to change the password.

If we were to change the founders name, all of his posts(like 2K) would now have admin on them, and he would have to restart his specific threads.

Is there a way to just have the "founder" lable moved to that admin account, and how do you do it?

Thank you!
