They've disappeared, and it's been that way for 3 months or more? It goes to an Adfly download...

Hello,

What's your forum's URL?
When you get an Adfly page, it usually means that your forum has been banned.

If I don't quote anyone it means I'm replying to the OP.

And if you follow that link you can see the forum's url.

And no, I'm not the OP of this thread.

Hello,

If you get an AdFly page and then an OnlineGuardian page, it means that your forum has been banned.

I smell something wrong here.. After Battlefield 4 came out, most communities became splintered and we became stagnate, hardly ANYONE posted anything on the site for about 4 months. I checked it every day too see what kind of activity might be taking place, games people were playing etc.. I GUARANTEE you, you cannot point to a TOS violation.. I watched it like a hawk even when we were very inactive... So, where is this "reasonable reason" you are talking about.. I'm all ears here.. Like I said, either Forumotion changed hands or something.. If it's because we have been inactive for a while, SAY IT!!! But 200K clicks going to YOUR credit, is not shabby.. We are getting ready to revamp for Battlefront, and the crew will be there with MANY more clicks.. But to say we have violated the Terms of Service is FALSE!!! I know those forums inside and out, I have monitored EVERY new registration since the inception of www.strengthandhonor.forumotion.net... Go ahead, give me the reason RIGHT on this forum.. We have nothing to hide! Post it.. That's what I thought, YOU CAN'T cause there isn't one.. Also, I would like to know what this "Adfly" thing is that looks like it want's to download Malware???? I CNTRL-ALT-DELETE to get rid of it?

Hello,

If you think your forum has violated any part of the TOU, you free to contest the ban. Other then that, nothing more you can really. I don't know the reasons your forum may have been banned, but I know that if that is indeed what happened, that is the only thing you can do.

Sorry Sad,

-Brandon

Well, I am the lock stock and barrel of that site.. NO PM, NO EMAIL, NO REASON and if you cannot produce one, we will proceed to our next succesfull venture with out you.. You may want to review your policy as it stands.. We strive to instill integrity into everything we do in our community and thus have a great standing with everyone in the gaming world... We will seek a host provider that strives to do the same...

OK, just got out of an emergency meeting with 7 of my admins.. They no longer want to use you as a host but, furthermore, they want me to report you for propagation of a malicious redirect.. You can read it here..http://pcvirusesremoval.blogspot.com/2013/10/remove-adfly-redirect-virus.html

Or herehttp://www.exterminatelab.com/remove-adfly-virus

Or here http://www.game-tuts.com/community/f65/adfly-virus-help-104262/

Or here even http://iridethelines.forumotion.com/t4074-media-fire-adfly
I WILL be reporting you at the behest of my admins.. After ALL the time I put into that site, I can spare a little time reporting you.. I have saved a copy of this conversation BTW.. have a nice day! Smile

UPDATE: Reported to Google.. I'm not done yet though..

The database says that your forum was ban because of spam.

ad.fly has been used for many years with no complains. Sometimes it is the ads that cause the issues. I never press the ads, but the skip ad button that appears at the top right.

It is also used on links to data host sites, like mediafire.

I think you need to clear up in your head what AdFly actually is.

Some hints:
a) it's not a download page
b) the page by itself is not a virus


You have no base for reporting anything as of yet and frankly you are wasting your time. Either contest the ban on the link I posted above or move on to another forum service without the sad attempts at causing drama.

@Klemen

OK, I will find the link you posted to contest the ban.. Number one, I should have been notified, number two, know the difference between "Drama" and "Disenfranchised" There IS a difference.. If you were on the other side of this, you would certainly be upset, don't say you wouldn't.. I spent a LOT of hours working on that website, countless monitoring and tweaking.. I'll check back with you after appealing the ban.. I just hope to see where this spam is supposedly cause, I checked it daily right up til the day it disappeared..

Are you the founder? The reason why I asked is that the founder account last logged on around 4/19/2013.
