Forum Ownership Change Request

I hereby publicly request that ownership of this forum, San Gabriel Mountains Discussion Forum, be transferred to me.

The current owner, Travis, created the forum in 2007. His last login was in 2010. He moved out of California and lost interest in maintaining this forum, which is devoted primarily to a mountain range in California. Taco was head admin after Travis left, but Travis did not transfer ownership to him through My Free Forum support. Now, Taco also wishes to step down from active administration, which leaves our forum without an active owner or head admin.

After talking things over with my fellow admins, Hikin_Jim and Dima, we agree that I should pursue ownership in order to gain access to the owner control panel and make some improvements to the forum. We also need to establish an owner-based relationship with MYFF support.

Over the last week or so I've managed to contact Travis. He has agreed to transfer ownership to me and has said so to MYFF admin via email. But he may not be able to satisfy their need to verify his forum account information. He no longer uses the email linked to his account here, and he cannot remember his old password. Thus, I believe my last resort is this public appeal to gain ownership of an essentially abandoned forum.

I will notify both MYFF admin and Travis of this post. Feel free to comment or ask questions. I'll answer what I can.

Edit: Here is a link to the related thread I created at the MYFF support forum.
