Death of Administrator & Loss of a Forum

Hi. The forum "was" pineapple.myfunforum.org for people who tied decorative knots. Not always the most tech heavy people. The site is now completely shut down. The owner passed away and at the time the people who knew had no idea how to look for and then join this forum and search for answers . . .  Are there any options to resurrect the forum or is the data gone to save server space?

I got involved when I wanted to get some information I knew was on the site but obviously i wasn't a regular user. But I knew enough to try to find answers for others less technically oriented.  Just seeing if I can help others.

TIA

I have reactivated, it is possible to petition for a change in ownership if a forum is abandoned.

A thread would need starting there, cross linking to a thread here.

Request for Change in Forum Owner

I have taken a poll at Allow Change in Ownership/Administration for membership concurrence on a change of forum owner.

All votes have been in the affirmative. Based on the positive vote, I request I be allowed to assume ownership of the forum.

I believe the limited number of votes is due to the period of time the forum was off-line. The number of topic views indicates there are people visiting the forum for information and I believe that is sufficient reason to try to preserve the information in the forum and work to rebuild membership.

Please contact me with any additional requirements, information needs, etc.

Thank you.

In that thread, there must also be a link to this thread, so that anyone who for whatever reason can't post there or gets their comment deleted or edited by a moderator etc they have an opportunity to post here. Not saying there is anything iffy, but it's a sensible rule and needs to be observed.

Ok then, just need to know which userid to make the new owner, then I can change the control panel password.

I suspect my last response was lost in I'm sure a heavy onslaught of messages.  The user name for the new owner, me, is: Shiseiji

Thanks

I hope I'm not close to being banned, but we are starting to pick up junk postings and I can't delete them.
