Solved Stopping manual addition of features?

Post by ToTheFuture on October 19th 2011, 2:42 am

I know this is a weird question, but how does forumotion stop good coders from simply REMOVING advertisements, footers, et cetera? I mean, it must be possible somehow, unless it was made so that it isn't. Shouldn't you guys start up some sort of protection feature where that stuff cannot be edited? If you haven't already, I mean...

Its possible to remove those things with coding of course... forumotions plan to prevent this is basically:
'we will delete your forum if you do'

Hi!

I don't know about removing advertisements, but as for the footer removal it is as LGforum says: we will ban your forum. It is against our terms of service to remove the footer. Smile

HOWEVER here is some food for thought.

Regarding the footer links.
Forumotion says you need to include a link if you have a HTML page as your homepage.

First of all, if you have paid to have the forumotion footer links removed... do you still need to include a link in the HTML page, seems a bit silly.

Secondly, this link... there is no specifications about it.
Including this in the page
Code:

<a href="help.forumotion.com"></a>
is technically including a link... but nothing will show up, so is that allowed?

And next, what about if you include a link... but the link is black, and the page background is black, therefore making the link invisible?

As i say, this IS including a link... forumotion just forgot to specify how.

Those are good points...
And I know they will delete it, but how can they possibly patrol?

LGforum; I don't think it's a good idea to take risks like that. It's best just to leave the Forumotion links well alone.

ToTheFuture; I'm not entirely sure of what kind of system they use to 'patrol' forums but members can also send litigation reports to your forum if the links are removed. Wink

Oh okay, because I was just thinking that it would be very easy for some members to take the cheap way of things... But even if a member just removed the link then nobody would know that they didn't pay, and this question did come up when editing my footer and I saw something like protecting the link? I don't know too much code so I don't even know what that was.
Don't worry though, I just need to wait until PayPal will let me use their service. xD I'm still too young lol.
Solved I guess, if that makes sense?
