Solved Help! our forum is being attacked

Post by kristukas on August 21st 2011, 6:50 pm

I didin't knew where should I write, so sorry if it's the wrong place
I have a huge problem with our forum http://hogwarts.forums.com.bz/. There's few people trying to mess with us, registering, sending messages, stealing other members acc and so one. About few hours ago, they created a new forum -hogvartsoslyvos69.forum6.biz, now all the topics are delated, but everything was exactly same as in our forum - style, topics, members names and avatars. would it be possible to do something, if we have an I.P and gmail of person who's trying to do all these things? Thank you!
p.s. soryy for my bad english

No there's now such thing, if he is being a jerk everywhere he will just keep getting banned anywhere he goes.

Sure,
But what kristukas is asking is if forumotion can ban the person from all forumotion forums.
I am sure if forumotion really wanted to they could add the ip and other information to be blacklisted.
But forumotion is not going to get in the business of doing that, Admins of any forumotion forums would just have to ban the same way as they have always done.

Right..

Since the question has been answered and there is no way forumotion would ban someone from every forumotion forum or blog, i will now mark as solved and lock the thread.
