We have only one admin for our existing forum and he's abandoned us for several months now. His absence is causing a lot of problems since none of us moderators have access to his admin tools. We only have basic moderator tools. As a result, the other moderators and I wish to form our own forum since we don't think he's coming back. What we want to know is if we'll be able to bring the forum's content with us so that we don't have to completely start over and lose all existing content.
From what I read about importing, I think I can do this, but I don't know if I need access to the existing forum's admin tools to make this happen (which I can't get) or if I actually can do this without those tools. Thanks for the help.
