Post Forum 'Ownership'  Reply with quote
As you are all aware, we have some big ideas for our little corner of the internet. As we plan to move forward, we are held back by the subject of forum 'Ownership'.

The MFF system basically regards all forums as little dictatorships where the person who created it has full control over the forum. Whilst the other admins have a certain amount of power, we do not have the authority to access the forums logs or (more importantly) transfer the forum to another system.

BritNerf was created in 2011 by a chap known as BNWnerf. He, along with a group of likeminded individuals founded the forum in order to create a platform for the UK community after the more established forums had grown crowded. He is incredibly proud of the forum and so he should be. As is often the way with life, BNW soon found that he nolonger had time to spend on the forum and drifted away from the hobby in general. As such, he has not been active on the forum for many years.

I contacted him recently and discussed our plans and he agreed to relinquish ownership to another admin. He agreed on the proviso that he retained his account for posterity (he remains proud of the community he created). After discussing this with the bods at MFF, they emailed BNWnerf but it seems that progress has ended there. I don't know whether he has not replied to the admins or they're too bogged down at the minute but we need to make some progress now before we loose the forum forever.

What we need to do now is essentially start a coup.

In lieu of a formal request from the forum owner, MFF will recognise the will of the majority and transfer control of the forum to another user. Without this control, we will not be able to transfer the forum and everything the community has worked for may be lost forever.

We're asking everyone to post below if you agree that this needs to happen. That forum ownership needs to be transferred to an active admin so that we can move forward. So far the A&M team have nominated myself as the new head honcho which I am prepared to take on but if you have an opinion on that then please make yourself heard.

For transparency, you can find my conversation with MFF here

I spit in the face of democracy and declare independence.

No not really. I approve this change of ownership
