Forum Host Death   Administrative Issues

The man who was hosting the forum Breaktime Classic, Bruce, passed away a while back. All the members of the forum I host have come from Breaktime Classic and we all have an interest in it being kept clean from spammers and organized (long sad story).  I have asked his wife, who is active in our forums about the hosting of it, and she has no ability to find her late husband login info nor any interest in hosting the forum. She has suggested I be the host of Breaktime Classic.  

So I am looking for help in the transfer of the hosting, if possible.  Either transfer it to her so she can hand it to me, or hand it to me.  I'm open to other ideas as well.  

Thanks

We are very sorry to hear of his passing.

You are now the host of Breaktime Classic. His widow's approval to transfer the forum to you makes the decision easy.

Thanks Walt.  Will it be a 24 hour process for me to access the controls there or just a log out/login?

You should have access to Controls immediately, but it may take a logout and login.

It's all showing now Walt. Thanks. At first visit it showed me as a host but no Controls tab. How long before it upgrades to a premium?

Forum upgrades are automatic for Plus members, but it only happens once a day in the morning US Eastern time.
