I have been active on a brewing and distilling forum helping other people out, as a member. Now I need your help. Please.
The forum has been severely neglected. There is only one active administrator (maybe just a mod - can't be sure).
The owner has gone absent ( fully off-line ). This first became apparent when Google withdrew captcha. From that point on it was impossible to get new users onboard And the site is in decline.
The site is an enormous wealth of information, however this is soon to be lost. The immediate threat is that the hosting will expire.
The admin, myself and many other members, want to work together to gain control of the hosting and the software.
Any help would be MUCH appreciated. We seem to be in a perfect storm.
PS. I have read a few other posts on this site and we have no access whatsoever to the original PCs/email trials/browsing history/passwords. This is a cold start.
PPS. If someone has already tried this and has proved there is no way forward, knowing that would also help.
