In progress Changing Founder Account/Transferring Forum Owner

Post by JEL52895 Mon 15 Aug 2011 - 23:21

I hope this is the right place to put this, I've never posted here. The founder account on my forum was an admin account shared by my co-founder and I. My co-founder has had to leave, so I shut down the forum. I wanted to reopen, but wanted to see if I could do this. Is there a way I could somehow both delete the founder account, and make mine the founder account? If I'm the only admin, I don't want to have to switch accounts all the time to look do certain things that can only be done on that account. It shows that the founder account administrates everything, and the other administrative account is lower. I hope this makes sense.

I did see that, but I was a little confused. So to clarify, my option is to change the admin account's username, password, etc. to make it mine?

Yes, you can do that but it means that your old founder vanishes from your forum - no sign of them. PM MrMario and explain the problem. He might help.

Are you able to contact the founder? If not you will need to wait six months and one day to be able to get access to the founder account.
