Solved Specifics regarding violating the ToS

Post by wdhebert on March 1st 2012, 6:41 am

Hello. I was "gifted" my forum by previous admins that "resigned." I am not the founder, so I was not extremely familiar with the ToS until my recent violation. I have posted questions regarding the specifics of the violation, (and have read many similar posts regarding the same situation) and all anyone does is resort back to referencing the ToS. Can anyone be more specific? I have deleted everything I THINK is in violation, but I would hate to THINK that, and end up losing my entire forum. I love and adore my forum very much, and I know none of us would disrespect the ToS on purpose.

My site: http://forlaynefans.bigforumpro.com/

Also, I have specific questions regarding our content:

A) pornography: our site discusses some people that have modeled nude in the past. (person is now deceased) She is a huge topic of discussion and her pictures are more "art" than pornography. Can these not be posted at all or can they be hidden with a spoiler?

B) Illegal content: we embed videos from YouTube a lot, as points of reference. This is allowed, correct?

Thank you for any/all responses. I'm just trying to understand how to run my forum better! (and not lose it!)

A) Such content can be considered as disrespecting the TOS.

B) Depends on what kind of videos are you embedding, until & unless you have the rights to distribute that content it would be fine. For example, i capture a video on TV of a football game telecasted by SkySports. Even if i am the creator of the video, i don't have the rights to distribute the video with the Sky Sports logo. So this as well, disrespects the TOS.

Hope this helps.

You have to think that any content on your forum has to be suited for someone 13 years old.

Thank you, I really appreciate all of this information. I most definitely have a better understanding of what can/cannot be posted on my forum.

I will remove any further content that is in violation.
