In progress Creator closing forum...HELP!

Post by reneasha June 27th 2011, 6:57 pm

Hi. The founder of the forum, for whatever reason, has decided to close down our tribe forum for an online game. I was wondering, as a follow Administrator, is there a way to transfer our threads and members to another forumotion forum? It would be painful to lose all our information that's stored on there. And i'm not sure what time-period we are working with before she shuts it down completely.

Any help/advice would be greatly appreciated.

I know forumotion will not supply the database of threads or members, but if you want them to transfer the databse to another forum then (they might not do it) but you will have more chance persuading them to do it, if you quickly make yourself the new forum of which to transfer the data.

If they won't then i suggest making a new forum and quickly PM'ing or emailing all your members about it.

Thats a shame.
Don't see why not since it is to another oone of their own forums.

Sorry to hear that, good luck getting your members all moved to another forum.

You could mark this topic as solved now.

i would just create another forum and have all members copy their post then post on the new forum. That,s about all you can do, unless the forum founder hands the forum over to another admin ,staff or member of the forum.

You should try to persuade him to give the forum to someone else or at least leave it open to give the members enough time to re-post their post at a new forum,

Please also note that it is possible to give the founding account to someone else should the original founder decide to leave. I suggest that you read this topic: https://help.forumotion.com/t81878-recovery-or-change-founder-of-an-account

...and see if you are interested. Wink
