Hello and welcome to ‘Ask Slater’, our Support tech’s weekly column where he addresses questions commonly asked by our userbase! Our question today comes from Tibbles from Awesome Site.
I’ve put a lot of hard work into my guild site. It looks great now, but things are starting to pick up at work and I’m not going to have as much time to run things on the admin side. I’m still going to be playing, but I can’t really be the guild master right now.
I’ve already gotten someone to take the leadership reins in-game, but I want to make sure the site is taken care of and active as well. How do I transfer ownership of the site to the new guild master so they can pick up management of the site?”
We all have those times where things start to pile up, so I understand. Fortunately, this is a pretty easy fix (once you know how).
The first thing to keep in mind, though, is that transferring ownership of the site completely to another person means that… well, they own the site. It’s theirs. If this is a temporary hiatus or slowing-down of game time, making the person a Site Admin and Forum Moderator might be preferable to completely transferring ownership.
However, there are certainly reasons to transfer site ownership to another user. On your Admin Panel for the site in question, there will be a link under the ‘Permissions’ tab to Transfer Site.
This link is only visible to the Site Owner. From this screen, all you need to do is select the new site owner and enter “Transfer Site” into the text confirmation screen. Click the button and the site will be transferred to the new owner.
If you have a specific question you think would be perfect for these articles, send us the request at firstname.lastname@example.org and Slater will personally review it and – after answering the ticket so you have the answer – potentially post it here with your username and guild site. If you would rather not have your username and site posted, Tibbles from Awesome will ask the question on your behalf for Slater to answer.
