    I have lost my wallet seeds but my wallet is up and running on my server.

    Is there any command I could reveal the seeds from the open wallet?

    Or alternatively, is there a way to give up all my live tickets and get back my full balance to the existing wallet, so I could create a new wallet and transfer my DCRs there?

    I don't believe you can get the seed back unless the wallet was created with the --unsafemainnet flag set, in which case you could use the getseed command from dcrctl. It is unlikely this applies to you.

    My suggestion is to keep backups of that old wallet and move the coins which are not locked up in PoS mining to a new wallet to which you have the seed. Keep moving coins as they free up and phase out using the old wallet... There is no way for you to expire your tickets early and move those locked up coins. Patience will be needed.
