Solved How many abuse reports does it take for a forum to get banned?

Post by Hunnyluvs on September 22nd 2010, 3:37 am

How many abuse reports against a forum does it take for that forum to get banned?
Does it work that way? Do people get their forums taken away?

-->How many reports of abuse against a forum would result in this?

Hi,

you can have as many "reported abuses" as you desire without your forum being banned.
It's the litigation team, or Online Gardian that can do the banning.
They'll only ban if they see a violation of the ToS, and if it is minor, they will give you a warning to clean up your act before they ban it. However, if it is a not a minor infringement, they will simply ban your forum without notification.



Yes, people can have their forums removed/banned Wink

Thankyou so much for answering.
Our forum has in fact vanished.
Can you tell me...how or where can
I ask to find out out if indeed we've been banned/removed?

yes, of course.

I'm not sure what just happened, but when I went to grab the address for you, Bimboland is back!

I had messaged Typlo. Perhaps he did something?
Or perhaps our founder managed to get back in somehow???

I really don't know.

But the problem has been that
this is our address

http://bimboland.forumactif.com/

and this is the address of the French Bimboland which was occupying our address while our forum was disappeared.

http://bimboland.forumsactifs.com/

The difference is the spurious Bimboland has an 's' after 'forum' and after 'actif', in the address.

What was happening is even if I posted our address manually into the address bar, and hit 'go', it would add the s's and go to the French forum, not ours.

We were being redirected somehow.

I'm still curious as to what has occurred, and also obviously very glad to see our forum back unharmed.

Any thoughts?

Well, only 2;

1) Forumactif = French version of ForuMotion ; closest URL = The French one.

2) The backup may have down'd your forum for an unknown reason, but it shouldn't be doing that at all, otherwise you'll get a maintenance screen

I'm glad to hear it's back now Smile

Since this thread appears to be solved, I will lock this thread and mark it as solved.
