Offensive Advertisement Material

Post by Ahmad Shamil on May 31st 2012, 4:28 am

Good Morning. I'd like to request that a certain advertisement be pulled from appearing on the forums. This is due to the fact that some of the users in my forum @ http://bankideamahperak.forumms.net had informed me that a specific piece of advertisement had offended them. I'm running a forum which caters to a government agency and I believe such imagery is unsuitable. I would humbly request that such advertisement be removed as the nature of the imagery is offensive/pornographic in nature. I enclose here the advertisement in question:



I would be very grateful if swift action can be taken.

Thank you.

Im sorry but forumotion won't remove advertisements, You can purchase credits in the ACP via paypal and other ways and use the credits to help remove them but forumotion doesn't remove them just because of that. Im sorry for this though. Sad

I thank you for your prompt reply. As to the removal of that particular ad, its regrettable I guess. Some members complained the photo depicted looks too much like a nude photo and thus make the browsing of the forums unsafe at work, which in the end defeats the purpose of the forum I had set up.

Could the Forumotion board perhaps notify the web ads provider that the particular advertisement is pornographic/offensive in nature? perhaps the advertisers would be kind enough to remove it.

If there is naught that can be done about it, I guess I'll have to move to another forum hoster. Though I have to say that I truely enjoyed using the system put up here. Its very user-friendly and helped me setup my organization's forums in a small-span of time.

Again, I thank you for your assistance.

I have noticed these issues. As 13+ years old use these site. Advertisements to scams, viruses, dating sites. Are not every appropriate.

The Ads should possibly be able to be chosen by the admin to semi reflect the nature of the site.

Hello,

Yes the ads persist, the only way to remove them is to spend credits for it.

But you shouldn't have offensive or inappropriate ads now. I've checked your forum many times and it seems to be OK.

Hi,

I've been refreshing your forum for about the last 30 minutes and I couldn't find the add either.

Leeloo, can't you remove them? Chris did back in the day, I think he gave the info to the devs...not sure what he did?

What do you mean, remove ads from forums ??
No and it's not allowed, the only way to remove them is to select the option in the admin panel.

The user wanted the offensive ads to be removed from the forum, we have taken steps now, so this issue should be fixed Wink
