Hello!

I have a bit of a problem regarding our forum, so i will explain it in a short version. If there is a moderator that is interested in a longer version ill be glad to answer any questions in a PM.

The problem is that the creator of the forum hasnt been as active as he should, and from time to time he comes in and edits some posts and deletes picture wich is frustrating the rest of the members.
We talkied about this problem with all members and we want to try and get this
creator out, but reading alot in this help forum, i see that it is not possible by normal means.

This problem could be easy solved by just creating a new forum with someone a bit more mature, but as many of you know the getting the members to register all over again and not to mention all the posts and category and style has to be done all over again.

So my question is, is there a way to get rid of the creator? and if not
is there a way to do a backup of the topics etc in the forum without the password of the creator?
Because to be honest the posts are much more valuable at this point than getting rid of the creator.

I hope someone could shred some light on this matter, as we all fear that this creator might delete everything all of a sudden and we will probably loose all members and the hard work to get this forum working.

Thankyou for anykind of answer that might help.

Hello.

It's not possible to downgrade or delete the founder since he is the only one who can delete the board and change the address, and he's the only one to know the IDs for the founder's utils unless he gave them to another admin.

About the backup, it's not possible to export it.

If you want to go further, I advise you to go to the juridical section.

Hello Katt!

Thankyou for this fast reply.
It is as i suspected, unfortunetly.
We will have a talk with the rest of the admins on the forum and
decide how to move on without this type of solution.
I think we will have a positive solution though, so once again thankyou
for the fast reply.

Best regards
