to add to Gunter's advice, that is why we urge hosts to designate a host "just in case" and write to Gunter or Walt and let them know your wishes and or write about it in your forum.

Yes, we have two private forums.  We were forced to take that position due to excessive trolling and possible data mining by hundreds of "unknowns" accessing our forums.

So, if I correctly understand what you stated, even if my Wizard transfers the forums to me (and even if I upgraded from Advanced to Extra) and I could "manage" with less controls, all our members would lose access to all of the forum because there is no Wiz?

Right. You would need to upgrade to DelphiPlus, then transfer to you, to make private forums work.

What about old private forums that were plus forums where the host has been absent for years and they don't answer emails to the addy listed. I was pretty active and there's a lot of stuff in there that some of the old timers would like to see again for the history. I even have an unread message in one that shows next to it. I can't remember the group codes though

I'm afraid there's nothing to be done with old abandoned private forums until someday they'll get wiped when there is a cleanup.  It takes the Host's permission to make any changes.

It's a good idea for Hosts to plan ahead and let us know what is the happen in cases like this, especially in active forums.
