Hello all

As you may know, I ran this message board for several years but had to hand it over the someone else due to work commitments. It isn't now being administered at all and the result is loads of spam messages.

Unfortunately the current administrator has forgotten the admin password and also the password of the email account I set up for the purpose, so they can't clean up these messages or even hand the role to someone else. As a consequence it has fallen into disuse.

To cut a long story (and a great deal of work) short, I have now managed to gain access to the email account. I've also received an assurance from the organisation that owns this and other message boards that, if enough people request it, I can be given back admin access to this board.

While I maybe not be able to do the role long-term, if I can get back admin access I can get rid of the spam messages and ban the users concerned, and generally get the board back to a state where someone else can run it.

If you think this is a good idea, all you need to do is to post a reply to this thread supporting the request. Don't start a new thread, just reply to this one. If we get enough then we should have the board back to normal pretty quickly. For those who are interested, the discussion I've had with the people who run the forum is here http://forum.myfreeforum.org/about22912.html

Many thanks.

Martyn

Hello again

Just to keep you all posted, the forum hosts have emailed the original owner of this board to let them know they are going to transfer ownership. They don't expect to get a reply but have to wait for a couple of weeks to give them a chance to respond before actually passing it over to me. So that should be the beginning of next week.

Martyn
