narutorpcenter.myfastforums.org (2/8/16)

Okay so basically this is about the 3rd or 4th time that Naruto RP Center has been hit by a rogue admin/account. So again, we've tried to get up with the actual head admin of the forum (Lavathing9), and again, he is a no show (as Head of Forums run the site in his absence since he usually doesn't come around). So as you can see, majority of the sub-forums have been deleted, I presume by the Editor account, and we'd like to see them restored. We (the members) are already going about ways to cover the rollback fee, though before that moment I felt it in everyone's best interest to know if we as a community can ask for a rollback with the head admin being AWOL? Or would ownership of the forum have to change hands to make that a possibility? Nonetheless, whatever the solution, we greatly appreciate your help in helping us resolve this issue.

Ownership would have to change.
What is it about your membership that keeps on causing this?
The fee for a restore is no where near covering the hours involved in doing it, and the lesson should be learnt first time round.

One would think. But the issue stems from staff changes. Generally when someone goes inactive as a part of the admin team, or are outvoted by other members of staff and the members, they are removed from their admin position. This leaves a bit of venom with some, and due to some...discrepancies of those acting with admin power, they don't end up changing the password on another admin account (the current situation so the rogue still had access to it). And in the past it was sleeper accounts former admins made, or admins quitting and leaving with a bang. Personally I'm just as tired of it happening as you lol, I've been on the forum 10 years in October, and every time it grinds my gears that security in such issues are often overlooked by the upper echelon of the staff team.

Nonetheless, we're going thru the motions to change site ownership. We have a topic up and all that goodness.

Bear in mind though a rollback is just that, posts and member since the rollback are always lost.

That takes us back 7 days from the incident, yes?

Also to note, I've attempted to contact Lavathing9 about this issue. He's yet to respond. (both mburke4@oswego.edu & lavathing9@hotmail.com)

http://narutorpcenter.myfastforum.org/ftopic45882-40.php

You can see that I (Cite) have all of the votes for the ownership transfer by majority of the active member base.

I will email myself, but there is an issue here in that I have to allow reasonable time, hence you are inevitably going to be rolled back something like three weeks. You may be better off cutting losses.

Can you give the date you want to rollback to? backups expire and I need to make sure the particular data is retained. Even now I can't make promises.
The system is not intended for this situation.

About February 6th would be fine, or anything less than that. I know it's probably a burden, and for that I apologize. D:

I have to be "reasonable" and allow 2 weeks for a reply.

I cannot pm the admin this so I've resorted to posting this.

The roll back fee has been paid for, I went ahead and donated to get this fee covered.  Though I'm a total scrub and messed the conversion rate up. No matter.(if you wish to refund the accidental excess amount then that is entirely on you, It was my fault)

1US13377R2222790T is the transaction ID

Either way, it has been paid for all that fun stuff. Enjoy.
