In progress Threatened with forum closure

Post by pisstazza on November 17th 2011, 5:46 pm

Help please. This message appeared on my ADMIN board yesterday!

7 d 7 h 23 min
Dear "www.mellowspoggeredanus.com" forum administrator(s), it appears that your forum doesn't respect our Terms of service. Our service is free, so we are urged to only display legal content on the forums.

You have have until the 25-11-2011 to be in conformity. After this delay, we will have to delete your forum if it still isn't in conformity.

1) Is it genuine and if so can I discuss the problem with someone ???
2) Can someone please tell me ' what has caused offence ' so it can be dealt with henceforth.


Whilst the forum can be a bit boisterous at times we in no way mean to offend and wish to put things right. Thankyou. Hello

Hi!

Yes, this is a genuine message from Forumotion. Your forum contains content which is breaking our terms of service here: http://www.forumotion.com/en/create-forum/terms-of-service.htm

You will need to go through the TOS and your forum and remove anything which is breaking the TOS. Smile

I presume you have received a complaint. Can I be told what that is so I can deal with it?

No, Forumotion does not specify what has been broken. That is your job; as the forum owner you have the responsibility to know what's being posted on your forum.

I've just visited your forum, and I was actually quite shocked to see such content. So there's a start. The rest you'll have to do yourself by reading our terms of service and removing the offending content. Wink

I am trying to be compliant in order to avoid having our forum closed so could you please tell me what has shocked you.
Also in Forumotions message it states 'Our service is free, so we are urged to only display legal content on the forums.'
I can see nothing illegal displayed on our forum.

More help please Hello

Well, the content on your forum and the language used. That's just me, the rest you'll need to find out.

I just visited your forum. I would remove the images of the women. Also the language is offense to me.

Thankyou for your help Base, but it is very non specific. Is there a member of the Forumotion team that could email me in order to put things right. I agree that there is swearing on the forum, but that is apparent on many Forumotion forums. There is no pornography , no racism and no hatred or criminality. It's basically ' Viz/ schoolboy humour ' and there is certainly no intention to cause offence.
I need some help so I can put this right. Hello

Are you saying these images break Forumotions ' Terms of Service ?' Hello

Double Posting:Posting consecutively is not tolerated unless separated by 24 hours since the last post. In future, please use the edit button. Wink

Like I said, you won't be told specifically what your forum is breaking. I'm afraid this is the case for everyone. While you may find your content to be acceptable, it may not be to other people.

The staff on the support forum do not see ligitation reports. Those reports go to the ligitation team.

You can't speak with the litigation team. Exact details are not given out, no exceptions. We have already told you of the possible offences, the rest you'll need to figure out. Smile

I am considering moving the forum away from Forumotion as I get the feeling perhaps it is unsuitable for it to be hosted here. Is this fairly straightforward and how do I go about it? :wouhou:

You've asked a question, and we've given you a response. It is not fair to say that we have not been helpful when your forum is in the wrong.

As for moving away, that is not possible. Forumotion does not hand out its databases: http://help.forumotion.com/t6668-forumotion-s-forum-databases

How is it in '' the wrong '' please. This is the answer I'm looking for. Not an opinionated answer, but one that refers to Forumotions T & C's. Thankyou Base.
I would remind you that I have paid money to host my forum here and before it is closed down, if that should be the case, then I would like some answers, thankyou. Hello

I don't know, nor does any other staff member here, what's in the wrong I'm afraid since we're not part of the litigation team. This is a free forum host, you haven't paid any money for it to be hosted. Wink

I quote '
when your forum is in the wrong.

You have just said this.

Also I have paid money to have adverts removed from my forum and further monies to remove 'forumotion' from my domain name. It now seems to me you are acting like bullys!

I need your help, not your agression. Hello

Hello,

As Base posted in this topic, he is correct for this matter. Other then one person on this board who can tell you what's wrong, no one else can. This is your forum, you hold the rights to know what on it. If you don't follow the rules you will face whatever is coming at you, as such a banned forum if you don't remove what is needed. Please read the Terms of Service http://www.forumotion.com/en/create-forum/terms-of-service.htm if you need help on figuring this out. I am locking this topic. Please don't create another topic about this.
