Solved Forum hijacked ???

Post by Darkside Dave on February 27th 2012, 3:27 am

What is happening?
Lately my forum has been plastered with multiple banners covering everything up so you can't see hardly anything. They are repeated panels with TINYPIC plasted all over everything. I get the impression that my forum has been hijacked. How can I report this to get it fixed?

I know your problem. It seems that TinyPic removed the images that were on your forum, and so you see the "TinyPic Image Removed" picture. This may not be the problem, but possibly is. If this is the problem, you will need to choose a new theme.

Also, can you provide a Forum URL so I may see?

Thanks!
Wink

The URL is www.DarksidersRealm.com I guess I just want that crap gone. I did some checking and found that TINYPIC is owned and operated by Photobucket. It would seem to me that Forumotion has to have some hand in all of this by putting that stuff on my board. I would really like to know how to directly e-mail the people at Forumotion about this. They seem to have well insulated themselves from complaints.

As Dradra44 stated, the images have been either removed and/or the person who created the skin has used up the bandwidth allowed by tiny pics.... I suggest installing a new theme/skin ..once you have done so, copy all the images in sites skin, and replace them with your own image url's .. if u have trouble let me know and i'll assist you. Please find a little relief in knowing your site hasn't been hijacked..

This is why i do not recommend people to ever use tiny pic for forum/web creations. If tiny pic comes a cross a pic hey feel is in violation they will delete all images ever uploaded from any given ip addresses, It would not matter if the other images where not in violation or not.

So all you can do is re-upload all the images and replace them in the proper places where they need to be. Or go with a new skin.

On your forum, I do not see "Image Removed" anywhere.. If this is solved, mark it solved. Wink
