Solved I need help fixing the new forum for my kids and their friends

Post by Juliery on June 7th 2012, 10:34 pm

I decided to volunteer and create a forum for my kids where they won't get banned. My son requested for it to be a free Pokemon forum where he and his older brother or friends can run the forum without me intervening. I don't want to do any webmaster work as it is for them.

I started creating forums and there's a problem. Everything is being attached to Red, Blue, and Yellow Discussion and I'm trying to make separate sections for each generation of Pokemon. There are currently five generations of Pokemon as I have heard, last time I was aware.

Here's my forum I'm creating. http://pokemonkids.forumotion.com/

I'm having trouble. I'm going to ask to admin someone from here who chooses to help so they can help me move the forums without losing any of their content. My children weren't told about this forum yet.

I am having trouble understanding what your issue is. Please try to explain your issue in more detail. Also this is not the place to recruit members.

Cylex:
There is no need to post your forum address.

Are you creating categories for each generation or forums?

I'm making a fun Pokemon forum and the first person I have on my mind for creating it is my younger son, then his older brother. I created the Red, Blue, and Yellow Discussion forums under the category First Forums and everything is being attached to that. I already made Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Crystal Discussion which is a separate generation from Red, Blue, and Yellow and I'm trying to separate to make it more convenient for the members that play Pokemon.

Then I was planning on making a Misc forum for my older son and his good friend. I haven't made rules yet but the only one rule I have is to not be a bully and to follow the laws of cyberspace. Today on the news there was a cyber attack and I hope that doesn't happen to either of my children or their friends.

My name is Julie and I'd rather be called that. The reason for the extra letters is because my name wasn't available. When I found out Cylex directed me to his forum because he wanted my children to join there, I realized he was only recruiting me so I deleted my post and reported it. I don't like being scammed out of my hard volunteering work while the feds deal with this current cyberbullying issue going on and speak to everyone about what's going on and who's innocent, who caused this, or who's sorry this is happening.

Edit:
Juliery -

One for each generation of Pokemon. There are so many of them now. It's not like I have to make one forum or thread for every Pokemon. Rather, we discuss the games and have less clutter on my kid's forum they'll administrate to the fullest and try to plan on changing rules every once in a blue moon to keep other members and kids safe.

Try this:

Pick the medium one on the bottom row.

I don't see the option for the Homepage or the Structure and Hierarchy. Where is it? Could you tell the difference if I was making one category for each gen of Pokemon or one for each forum because I was planning on making other Pokemon Games Discussion too.

In the administration panel on the first page (Home Tab) that loads there should be two buttons - Simple and Advance. Press the advance button.

Maybe these will help explain it better -

I read it and still don't understand it. I need more help.

I saw your signature. What does reporting forums do and what is it used for? Can my children come and report forums bullying them or do you not deal with those issues?

Reporting forums usually deals with forums breaking the Terms of Services of Forumotion.

P.S. I have sent you a pm.

Most of the forums my children and their friends go on have to do with V Bulletin mostly. Is there a forum to report the issue about the webmasters violating their terms of service and forum policies another admin put up for my son to get on serebiiforums after my other son was banned?

Hello,

Are you try to create 5 different categories?

Example:

First Generation:
Forum1
Forum2
Forum3

Second Generation:
Forum 1
Forum 2
Forum 3

Third Generation:
Forum 1
Forum 2
Forum 3

And so on?

Like this http://www.serebiiforums.com/ from the serebiiforums. Just see their forum index and help me make the Pokemon forums like those. We don't need a chat room discussion or anything unless my kids want an IRC chat room where they can ban members who bully them or falsely accuse them of something they haven't done.

So you want the same thing as they have? Same forums and Categories?

Yes and since that's my son's first priority, we're making those first.

Edit: I no longer see the option on my screen to keep making forums. Can anyone help me show me where it is again?

It seems like the forum was already made and sorted out for me, my brother, all our friends, and the members that will join.

Hi, my name is MichaelXD and I'm Julie's son. She adminned me when I joined last night. Pleased to meet you. Smile

As long as you guys weren't the ones that falsely accused us of something we didn't do and someone we're not, you're welcome to stay as long as it doesn't become apparent on our board.

My mother did have trouble differenciating category from forum because she saw none of us on the serebiiforums due to both of us being banned for no reason.
