Solved Forum is hijacked what can be done?

Post by TonnyKamper May 14th 2018, 8:10 pm

Hello dear Forumotioners,

Last Saturday when I wanted to login to my test forum http://punt.actieforum.com/ it was completely gone, the url now directs to a completely different looking forum with the same url, on which it seems there isn't posted in years !
So either they hijacked my testforum, or someone has put an old back up to work which overrides our forum url.. On Friday everything was fine my forum was still intact, but on Saturday it was gone..

@SLGray and @APE you can comfirm my forum existed because you both have logged in there a while ago to help me with some problems..

So now I wonder if it's possible to get my testforum back?
I have many tests on there which aren't all implemented yet on my official forum Crying or Very sad

I see now that your forum is a test forum and Don't have a lot of posts, our new system will change the forum address if it's a forum that don't have a lot of members or posts that is why your address was changed and not why I told you in the fist place (my mistake) Our new system will change the URL of sites that are not used that much to a new URL of our's

lots of unused forums will get put on the same system

@APE I have testforums for each version, the others are still having actieforum in the url, will this apply for them too in the future? If so will the url then change to forumactie for each one?

I am not 100% sure it will depend on the number of times you use them and the number of posts on it.

I'm about 50% sure they will move over at some point but if they do then your best way to deal with this is to use the   Forum Utilities of the forum you want to find then use the direct connect to ACP button and you will see the address of your forum if it's moved or you can make a thread here but the faster way is to use the Forum Utilities.

For technical reasons, forums with less than 50 posts have been moved from the main domains (forumotion.com in particular) to secondary domains such as board-directory.net, iftopic.com, darkbb.com, all-up.com, team-talk.net, your-talk.com, bestgoo.com Forum is hijacked what can be done?

Thank you very much @SLGray does this mean I can put the forum back to it's original url? Because that is now displaying that very old forum which is not in use so it seems...

just try to remember you will need to have 50 posts or more on the forum or our system might change it again Sad What I did was to post like mad on it to keep it as a test forum with the old address Wink
