Need help, please! (Forum domain and threat of deletion)

Post by MistressKatishka on September 13th 2011, 11:00 pm

This morning, after requesting a renewing of my forum domain name (which I have had for quite a while now), I had a message waiting for me in my administration panel main screen. It says the forum doesn't respect the terms of service and is in danger of being deleted in less then 10 days. But this message also lacks details, I don't know what it is that the server wants fixed or removed. A far as I know my site has NEVER hosted illegal content, or anything that is too over the top even as represent a paranormal romance, international best selling author. I've had my forum community for over a year and this is the first complaint/problem that has ever been brought to mine and my partners attention. I've gone ahead and changed the appearance on a guess that it might have been some graphic content that caught the server attention. But again, its only a guess. Why all of the sudden do I have a problem with the server???

Someone please help! I don't want to lose my forum, my partners and I have worked too hard and too long on it. .

What is your forum about?
Your best bet is to read the Terms of Service

First Mario, thank you for the reply. Second, I have read over the terms of service, my partners and I all have.

Our forum represents the fan community of Author Joey W. Hill. Published, legit and growing in popularity. We've been operating for just over a year now and the content really hasn't changed much so we can't figure out what we're doing wrong now.

If it helps here is the forum addy: http://fansofjoeywhill.forumotion.com

In an effort to try and comform to the guidelines/terms of service, we recently changed the skin but before that there was another. The graphics, because the author writes erotica, were a representtation of what can be found in her writen works. We're guessng right now, or our only guess for this warning from the server, is they were a bit much. We don' know. That's why we're seeking help now

It could be the images of the book covers:
1. sexual images
2. also the covers I believe are copyrighted

Those are some areas you mean want to reread the Terms of Service.

Thanks for the tip, slg. I did as you suggested, removing the book covers an this morning my .com domain name was active again. Does this mean I'm in the clear, the problem is fixed?

Also one more thing: We have permission from the authors publishing house, who owns those covers, to use some of those book covers for this site specifically. Does that make any difference at all?

For whatever content you are posting, add the written permission from site in form of screenshot to avoid the problems in the future.

Edit: Thread is locked, don't make multiple topics about the same problem.
