Solved Regarding Terms Of Service

Post by roddy15 on August 8th 2011, 12:43 am

Hey,

Basically someone posted this below:
http://legozoneforum.forumh.biz/t1082-my-video-game-hacks

I was wondering if this is illegal according to:
http://www.forumotion.com/en/create-forum/terms-of-service.htm

I told them it was but they thought it wasn't. I've owned 2 FMs forums and I'm currently admin on:
http://mlnteam.forumotion.com/forum

Thanks in advance,
Roddy

Right they've changed the topic title and called it "mods" instead of "hacks". Still against ToS?

Well I was wondering if it was illegal to do it. Mean should I report or should I just tell them if it's allowed or not? It is though against the FM ToS?

Just really want a yes or no answer. If I have to report it I will. I just wanted to inform them if it's illegal instead of going reporting their forum to get it deleted.

Well, i don't really understand you.

If you feel they are illegal, you can report them. We as staff members cannot give you a exact picture on it, because we are unaware of what their forum does. The link you posted, has nothing illegal i feel.

Highly doubt it. Hacking video games is the not the same as say, hacking a website or server.

A search on Google for Action Replay or something related brings up hundreds of Forumotion video game hacking forums. There are Pokemon hacking, Wii hacking, Mario cheats, etc.

So sorry, I highly doubt this is illegal, since so many forums have bypassed it. Plus, hacking video games in general is not illegal.

Hi,

Here's a simple answer;

Yes, it is against the ForuMotion ToS, as he is providing a mean to hack something, yes please report it Smile
It's Illegal in many countries.

Devine, anything to do with hacking, for example, hacking a video game, through to hacking the CIA is all under the category of "Hacking" and is thus considered Illegal.
Sure, it's done in a different way, as opposed to sitting infront of a PC compared to a Tv Screen (for example), but it has the same consequences, and the exact same law's apply.
