lost admin powers? ( 22:21:19 TueAug 20 2002 )

We had a temporary server glitch a while ago, which resulted in apparent loss of members, posts and admin powers at certain boards.

Everything is back to normal now. However if you can't seem to get into your Admin Center or have other symptoms of loss of admin powers, just do a hard refresh on the board - Shift + Ctrl + Refresh. :smile:

I've done Ctrl+shift+refresh. Nothing. I've cleared my cookies, deleted my history, and rebooted. Nada! I still can't get in. Is there something that can be done on your end??? PLEASE HELP!

One or two people are still reporting difficulties accessing their Admin Center. On investigation, the boards concerned were/are OK.

Please try the following BEFORE posting here:
  • Clear your browser cache
  • Delete the Best Boards cookie
  • Delete your temp files - this will not do any harm
  • Close down your computer and then switch it on again
  • Log in to your board in the normal way - a new cookie will be set
If you've tried ALL these things and you're still having trouble, post in this thread. :smile:

Re: lost admin powers? ( 10:43:07 WedAug 21 2002 )

Hi. Yesterday it appears that I had hackers over at my board (http://azure.bbboy.net/owlsnet). They completely wrecked the place and managed to somehow erase my profile including username. However, using the same username & Password I set up a new board (http://azure.bbboy.net/owlszone) Which now I also have lost my admin rights to.

It kept saying username not recognised, so I tried to register again under the same username to see if that would restore my admin powers, but no such luck. Is there anyway possible to rectify this so that I can once again have admin powers on the newer site as the hackers are likely to attack again at owlsnet.

Please help

Thanks,

Luke

Hi Berksowl,

It wasn't hackers that gave you trouble with your account and board, we had trouble on our end yesterday/last night (I am pretty sure your trouble is related to those issues and not hackers-it included some data loss and loss of admin powers) you are still showing as Admin on both boards though-you still have no powers though?

Have you tried a hard refresh? Control + Shift + Refresh or hit F5? I apologize for the trouble you've had, but BbBoy is working on resolving this quickly. If you do not have powers on the new board after doing a hrad refresh post back to me here. :smile:

Hi, thanks for your reply - I tried the hard refresh and that didnt work. Could this have been hampered because I re-registered the username Berksowl as it kept saying user not found?

I re-registered and it let me as if there had never been another Berksowl!

Is there anyway of you transfering admin powers to the new Berksowl account?

I revoked and reset your admin powers to the Berksowl name, if you can try to see if that did the trick for me that would be great Berksowl. I hope it restored them for you. Let me know either way ok? :wink:

Should be the current one you've set up. Click Shift + Control + Refresh when you load the board and see if that doesn't bring up the Admin link for you. :smile:

Its still not working. Also whenever I try to acces the admin section from the email I was sent it says "you must be an administrator to view these options" or something to that effect.

Is there anyway around this?

No, if you CAN use cookies it is better to go with that-can you try logging in on your board and then refreshing to see if that doesn't bring up the Admin link-you are showing as the board's admin and should be able to access the admin link. I apologize fo the trouble this has been for you Berksowl, but it should be working for you. It might just need you to log in off of your board itself-since it's showing you as a guest.

Still no luck. Its still showing me as a guest, giving no User CP options, no admin options and I cannot even post! What would you suggest now? Is there any way of you guys sending me a new email with an admin link on there or anything?

Is owly_gav your second name? I see that one logged in. Did you set things so only admins and mods could post?

No Owly Gav is a froend of mine. He was a mod on the first board. My second user name was also Berksowl because it allowed me to re-register it as it kept saying user name doesnt exist. It therefore created a new username and password, so the original Berksowl and its original password no longer exist I presume.

Owly gav says he cannot login as it says username does not exist to him, even though it says on my screen he is logged in. He also cannot access user cp as it tells him he is not recognised.

Have you deleted your temp internet files (aka cache) and tried to re-enter the new password you got when you registered? That has to be what is wrong because BbBoy was able to log in as you just now with it and you should be able to as well.
