Title: Forum Owner gone forever and need New Owner
Post by: Agency on December 27, 2013, 04:11:10 am

Hello, I've been a member for about a year and the Owner (http://elwoodcitycentral.createaforum.com/index.php?action=profile;u=1) of the forum left without granting any of us Admin rights. When did he left? He unexpectedly left a year ago. Yeah, this is a very late report. So, how could we have Admins without the owner? And no, we currently don't have a single admin or moderator ever since the creation of the Forum. Is it possible that the Create A Forum Staff could make me the new owner of the forum? We need a Owner/Admin fast because spammers and bad posts are taking over as we speak!  :(

If there is spam I can close the forum and you guys can start a new one that is the only way to go without an admin.

We've done so much this year that we might not want to start all over. Is it possible that you make me Administrator or New Owner, so I could delete the bad posts and ban the spammers?

No sorry due to security reasons it can't be done. Everything with the forum is tied to the account owner. And the owner owns the content.

So, what should we do? Is there a way to transfer the content to a new forum? If there is then that's great! But I don't get this, you are able to delete the forum but don't have the ability control it?

If it is overrun by spammers I can suspend the forum. The best thing to do is create a new forum at this point.

It's not overrun by spammers, yet. But, it seems this is the only option, could we have time to warn others about the suspension? Thanks for helping out.

I have to ask, is it possible to have the same domain name once that forum is deleted?

I request a shutdown of the forum Elwood City Central.
