  • [Forum] Former Admin entering and changing his usergroup

    I am running vbulletin 4.1. How is a demoted former admin entering into forums that are member only, and how is he changing his user classification back to "not moderated"? Nothing is showing in the logs.

    I have taken all entries I can see, plus double checked the config php file. No other moderator is leaving tracks as to somene changing it for him...

    I have had a falling out with him and he is posting harmfull things.

    I am puzzled. Any ideas?

    Ban him

      I do not really wish to ban him outright. He is a valid hobbyist. I do not want to get vindictive, and am attempting to "take the high road". Banning would be the ultimate solution.... But how is he doing it? Can that method get around a ban block?

        Tell him to come clean or you will ban him. I can't think of anything unless he has given himself superadmin permissions in config but you say youve checked that

            I can only back up the config php file and if something happens, Only I have server access.

              He just did it again. I am at a loss as to how.

                Have you spoke to him about it?

                  Possibly another admin or mod promoting him, not sure what logs you need to check, someone will know

                      Make sure he isn't a super admin or has rights to delete logs in the config.php file.

                        I checked the super admin in config php. He is not listed as his member number. I am the only one listed who can delete logs.

                          Send him a pm saying there is a problem with his account and you have to delete it, tell him he is welcome to re-register with a new account.

                            Have you checked your access_logs to see exactly what he is doing? (If you don't know where they are, ask your host.)

                              Two questions, 1 are there any promotions in the "moderated" group? and 2 is he a member of another group? If both answers are no, create a new group (that's moderated) and stick him in it to see if he gets out of that one.
