Solved lost control

Post by welan on March 23rd 2014, 2:15 am

Seems we (the admin and mods) have lost access to the admin controls of our forum. We're a generally quiet place that doesn't see alot of activity. Recently a spammer has decided to settle in and just mess things up. We just need to regain control and quietly remove the offender so we can get on with our normal lives (like we really have any).  Mattb4, our fearless leader and the rest of the team (bozo, bdquick and myself "welan") are just not sure what to do since we don't seem to have control anymore. This is our forum http://suseunbound.canadaboard.net/forum

Hello welan,

If the forum is not accessible you can use the utilities : https://www.forumotion.com/utils

Using the creation email / forum URL & creation password you can access the utils and perform backups or reset the founder password.
