Read the ToS to see what you need to remove.

No one here can remove the illegal content. You or your friends put it in your forum so you should be able to remove it.

I dont know whats illegal and whats not there is some dj mixes on a mp3 player from raves in the early 90,s i didnt think it would bother any one as it is all underground white lable unreleased stuff

Before i delete the site is there a way to back up the forum or zip it into a file for another location ... Or if you show us whats cool so we dont have to close are forum

Well at least you have gotten a warning with 8 days to remove content.
so that means they are probably just minor violations.. but they are still violations and formation litigation's decided to give you a warning/chance and to remove the content to avoid your forum being shut down.

It's not often that forumotion notify people and give them this warning for they are not obligated too.

so i would just go through and delete any post that my be offensive or have to do with file sharing. it sounds more of violations dude to copyrights then anything else.. if it was something real offencive or inappropriate they would not have gave you a warning
( depending on litigation's decision)


You may want to close the forum and put it in construction mode for only staff to log-in so you can clean the board up and create new rules for all your members to see when you re-open it.. but yeah it's your forum and you and your staff to maintain and moderate it.. you should remove any post you think that may be in violation when they are first posted and be sure to issue warnings and or bans on members that are breaking your rules and forumotions TOS.

You can also try contacting forumotion litigation by doing a report your self.
Explain that it is your forum and you have received the warning to remove content in violations within 8 days but you are unsure exactly what they violations are and if they can tell you what the complaint was about.

Other then that just start deleting everthing you feel might be in violation of forumotions TOS.
