Solved Harassment issues.

Post by ineedhelpandstuff on September 4th 2011, 2:04 am

Hi, sorry about the username. I made it a while back when I needed to check some things.

Anyhow.
Currently somebody is threatening to take down my forum because I've stolen ideas and content from them, which I have not. The set up of my forum is a standard roleplayer's set up, and I'm using a free layout, just with some images changed (All of them by me in photoshop). Will I be contacted at all by the administrators he claims to be getting against me? I'm just not sure what to do. Thank you.

If you do get hacked, all you would need to do is go to:
http://forumotion.com/en/utils
and sign in with the email and password you used to create your forum, then restore your site as it was before it was hacked.

Well it's not that I'm being hacked necessarily, it's that he's claiming I've stolen stuff that I haven't and says he's going to contact the forumation administration to get my forum taken down. I'm just wondering what happens next, especially since I've noticed he'd been editing his forum to look more like mine, although I can't check everything cause I've been banned on his. Sigh.

Don't worry about it. Formution won't delete a forum for a few pics anyway, especially if they're yours. Don't worry about it

And FM sites can't be hacked; lies. Ignore this person

I'm not sure if he does, but I know enough about copyright law to know what he's claiming to have copyrighted isn't something that can be. Sadly it hasn't stopped him harassing me on multiple outlets. Sigh.

Thank you for the comments though.

Hi, Forumotion will only delete sites if they break our terms of service. As long as your forum abides with our TOS then you should be fine. This person threatening to hack you is nothing but an angry little kid. Wink
