Solved FOUNDER HAS BEEN GONE SINCE 2013

Post by F D B March 29th 2021, 11:14 pm

Hello everybody!

So... I posted this thread in 2019: https://help.forumotion.com/t157736-founder-has-been-gone-since-2013#1094005
8 Years have passed since the owner has logged in for the last time.
I've been Administrator of the site since 2007, so I'd like some help in order to remove him as the owner.

I've talked to him via Instagram a couple of days ago and he was willing to help but he can't remember the password, and the email he registered is no longer in use (Hotmail deleted the account due to lack of use), so there's no way to retrive the password since I (as admin) cannot change his password or email.

Forum version : #phpBB3
Position : Administrator
Who the problem concerns : Yourself and the owner.
When the problem appeared : 2013
Forum link : https://seanpaul-lovers.easyforumpro.com/

Thanks in advance.

OK, I'm starting to collect all the data right now.
I have one more question though: We have about 250 registered users but only about 10 of them are currently active, most have left the forum years ago and never posted again.
So when creating the thread you're asking in which members agree to the change of ownership only about 10 of the registered members (the active ones) will take part in it. It'd literally be impossible to get the others to sign because they haven't logged in for more than 5 years (10 in some cases).

Wait a minute! If you contacted the owner, he just need to come here and ask for help with his password. After he logs in , you and him can exactly change the founder information.

I can totally do that!
Does he need to register here with any other email? Because remember he lost access to his registered email as owner.

Here's a screenshot of the chat we had on Sunday about it.
