Stolen Site

Post by Dr.Dreadloc on July 17th 2012, 5:47 am


Hi, I hope someone can lead me too or the direction to help me find answers to my problem.
The matter at hand is awhile back me and at the time friend thought about making a site, it was my idea since i have a couple of forums already. I created and design the site for positive matters and slowly showed the person how to work it since it was for both of us to run it. we had a falling out due to his corrupt ways plus he using the site for negitive slander. before I could correct it he took me off the site, and I can not now control the persons actions. Now it is causing many problems in our area. I feel the person needs to remake another forum of his own, under a different name and design, If he wants that type of forum It needs shut down,in case any legal actions are taken about this forum, that my name will be cleared of its topics and posts. since it was 95% mine, which I have proof that i made it, if someone could look up the past actions from the beginning of the forum you can see for yourselves that I am correct. ty

I use to go by 7_deadly_sins on that one. If one could help I will give info of the site.

I seen that, but after reading it, they send a response to the admin of the site, why would I want the person to know that , it could cause problems for me here. has to be a better solution, why can't the ones in charge read the site , they will see for themselves.

To be honest, it seems like your stuck without a forum, bud.

If you knew the person in real life, it would be different and you could talk it out with the person.

That's why you should make sure you trust someone 100% before giving them admin controls.

Exactly it is sent to Forumotion litigation team not the Administrator. If the team determines that the forum is breaking the Terms of Service, it will ban the forum or give the forum sometime to fix the violations.

Who exactly is the founder of the forum?

Me and a friend at that time thought it be nice to try and help others, It was me who told him I have other forums and that I will create and design it for us to use. It was my concept of the name and design. We decide that we both be admin. After designing the forum I started showing him how to administration work. such as making topics, just the typical info. So what happen, for no good reason at all he started causing problems with my 17 year son. The person became very agressive and causing problems in the area as well. I learn a lession that one should really learn about someone before the word :friend" is used,lol. I guess he felt that if he didn't banish me from the site, I might delete it or such. Many people in our area has ask me many times can I do something about his abuse and slander he causing by the site. I told them that I have nomore access to it, so thats why I made this post. I did see that after I wrote this he change it up, I just want the name of the forum changed, I am the one who created the slogan for that type of site. He can have a thousand forums for all I care, he just needs to not use the forum to slander people.

Thank you, Dr.Dreadloc

You still did not answer the question as to who is the founder of the forum. The one who created the forum & has the account access, is considered to be the owner.

You tell me who the founder is? First, I was the only one at first who knew of this forum site, plus after discusing it with him I created the site under his and my admin accounts, that way if something was done wrong I could fix it. I had both admin and passwords. Of course he is the owner now, I was banned from it. Its not like I can't make more forums if I like, but this forum was reported of before and you guys check into it. All I like is you guys to check in on it from time to time. Trust me, there are many upset people angry over this forum. I was asked to inform the owners of the forum site of the issues, Would it help if "they" would post on this topic, I know that I won't be in no trouble if they legally pursue it, because I was banned, which is a godsend really. I just promise them that I would bring the matters up to the forum owners. We live in a very large apartment complex, so many that is wrote about are either in mangerment or site residents, so I know them personially. So I felt bad due to all that has happen, I told them I can't banish nor moniter any written statements. Like I already stated, I do not want the forum or be part of its topic & posts. I just wanted to include you on the matter. I f he gets in any trouble over it from whom he wrote about, thats on him.
any questions, ask away

Yes he has the account now, It was a joint one, both as admin, ofc I can't be held responsible for his own actions, I have no part in the forum now. I do view the forum to read the slanders and the bullying. Most of the members are multiple names of his children and him self. They ask themselves questions or make statements for either they answer themselves or have the admin to respond. Just last night a person I know who took her children on a cruise, who has been bash for many months on the site, was posted that she sold drugs, called a [Language], and took monies from her x-husband, this is pure maddness, in the past if someone post in their defense, if it was against what he said, he either go in and reword their post or add his own twisted words as it was theirs! There is a freedom of speech, but to use a forum to write nonsense and slander others with lies is hurtful and wrong, esp if a forum owner knows of it and let it continue.

you can see yourself I have been a forum member for 4 years, so I use these forums for awhile, so you should believe me when I say one of your forums is being misused. I am a noble person and I am not trying to cause him trouble because he kick me from my site. Everyone has a right to a forum if done by your terms. This forum was constructed in a odd manner by me using his and my account, this said... I just like the forum to be viewed and readed and the litigation team decide on their own if I stand correct or not. He was warn once from your team about profanity and such...make your own judgements, I think a few he wrote about is about to file a civil suit.

Okay what the staff are asking is When the forum was first made was it your Email address and name that made the forum or was it the other Admin's ? the founder (maker) of the forum has to add there own Email address to make the forum. This is the founder the other Admin is just an Co admin not a founder at all. you can only have one founder to a forum and one co admin.

If the forum was made by you and your Email address and you can still get in to the forum Utilities then you are the forum founder.

You can log in to that account an take it back .

But if you can not log in there then your not the founder and you will not be held responsible for that forum and what is going on in it .

if you wish to report the forum then the staff here are right use this link
http://www.forumotion.com/en/litigation/
This will go to our Staff team to look into not the Admin /Founder of the forum.

Hope this helps a little
