Solved My forum deleted? I did not delete it. Need Urgent help please.

Post by Guest on January 5th 2014, 12:11 am

My forum is not online! Just tried to go to it and instead of my link
www.smithchat.com -I wastaken to the page.......
http://www.forumotion.com/en/search/www.smithchat.com

which says....
The forum www.smithchat.com doesn't exist.Verify the internet address you typed : www.smithchat.com,
and try again if there is a mistake.
It is possible that the administrator has chosen to delete it.

I have not deleted it.
I haven't been to the site for a few weeks because busy with other stuff,so don't know how long this error has been occurring, but I paid for the renewal of my domain name with 1600 points on the 17th November 2013. Please could someone look into this as soon as possible? I'm really worried now.

Yes similar I think but I'm in Internet Explorer.
My original url is http://smithproject.editboard.com/
Just tried that and that is working, but I paid for renewal of my domain name www.smithchat.com, which I've had for several years. Has something gone wrong with the re-direct?

I really do not know. We will have to wait patiently until the Pro Admin returns and checks. Keep an eye for the Pro Admin (Buttercup) to reply to that topic.

I have logged into my admin panel via the editboard address.
Its appearing in the "forum address" section thatmy domain name was not renewed,though I'm sure I had renewed it, but the credits are still available. How do I get my domain name back?

Well, then you will need to purchase the domain name, but Forumotion can not guarantee that you can get the same name.

You are looking under the customized domain name tab?

In credits management/ domain name section, it tells me that www.smithchat.com is already taken, so it won't let me have it. But that's probably because it is already mine but I need to make payment again, as the payment in November obviously failed. What can I do, I want the same name.

At that section I entered my domain name but received this error message........
Error
The supplied domain name is not well configured
Your CNAME must redirect to : smithproject.editboard.com


ADDING ANOTHER NOTE -I believe forumotion do the CNAME redirection because you acquired the domain name for me in the first place & not an external host.

So you got a free domain name, and you use 1600 credits in November 2013 to renew it?

Well I believed that I had renewed it in November, and have a note that after using 1600 pointsfor the renewal I had 7 points left. But when I now go to Credit Management History, the renewal on 17th November is not listed - and the most recent transactions are shown as follows..
You have currently 1607 credits

Sun 17 Nov 2013 Additional credits + 1500
Sat 5 Oct 2013 Ads disabled for members and guests Add 3 months without ads - 600
Sat 5 Oct 2013 Disable copyrights 3 months without copyright - 300
Sat 5 Oct 2013 Additional credits + 1000

It shows that you brought 1500 credits in November, but no spending 1600 credits.

Yes I know, but I was sure that I had renewed it, leaving me with 7 points,and that's the mystery, becauseitsobviously given me back the 1600 points(as I now have 1607 and lost my domain name)

Can it pleasebe rectified so that I can have my smithchat.com name back please, and so that I can attempt the payment again?

When I renewed it in November (or thought I had) it was not taken by anyone else, but still showing in my admin panel ready for renewal at that time, though I don't think it was actually due for renewal until a week or two later, but had done it early (or believed I had) because Iknew I probably wouldn't be back for a while. I only discovered tonight thatmy domain name linkwas not working, and that by accessing my admin panel viamy old editboard address, as mentioned above,it is appearing notinfact to have been renewed. When I now, tonight, try to pay to renew it by entering my domain name in the field, it tells me that the name is taken. But in fact yes, it is hosted by forumotion but in my name.

Well if it was not renewed on time, then more likely it was made available and someone took it.

Hello,

All we can advice you is to wait for our pro administrator(Buttercup) to come online(probably by tomorrow), when she gets back to work, she'll be here to review the transactions and provide an answer to your issue. Please wait patiently, thanks Smile

Thank you Jophy,

PS -
Error
The supplied domain name is not well configured
Your CNAME must redirect to : smithproject.editboard.com
I checked status of my domain name at "Go-daddy", and it says it is reserved. I'm hoping that means the reservation is for me, as it has been mine since about 2006-2007. It just needs the CNAME pointer changing back for www.smithchat.com to http://smithproject.editboard.com so that it will again display in my admin panel enabling me to submit the points for a year's renewal.

Hello Buttercup, phew! glad to see you back,
Will try to briefly summarise from what alreadywrote on this topic.

Renewed it in December 2012 (I think the 2nd)
so it was due for renewal about 2nd December 2013.
I believed I had renewed it on the 17th November 2013 after I
had purchased enough extracredits to cover the 1600 credits needed.

However, it appears it wasnot renewed on the 17th November as I'd believed,
andthe 1600 credits still showing as available in my transactions history.
(except I've used 300 of those now to renewcopyright, but will buy 300 more once I know I can now renew my domain name)

As requested by St Gray in last post above, I've now also been to the new "Only Topic"
http://help.forumotion.com/t129617-only-topic-my-domain-name-is-not-available#868374

EDIT - Thanks very much, just discovered www.smithchat.com isOKnow:wouhou:.
