Technical Details


Forum version : #phpBB2
Position : Guest
Concerned browser(s) : Google Chrome
Who the problem concerns : All members
When the problem appeared : 01-01-2021
Forum link : https://township.forumotion.com

Description of problem

Since the start of this year the link to the Unofficial Township Forum will bring you to The Township (adress: 'https://township.board-directory.net/').
I have been approached by several members of this Forum to find out what is going on, since they no longer can approach there home.
Can anyone here tell me what could be the issue? And if this is not the right place for support please let me know too.
Thanks in advance

In our database, the forum seems deleted and only the founder has the power to delete and confirm by email the deletion of the forum

Another question that arises:
Why is the url 'township.forummotion' now linked to the outdated forum 'The Township'?

Is that something that happens automatically when a founder deletes a forum?

So if we find someone who wants to take over this package they have to contact you about this?
Founder is not been reachable by her Admin team other than on her Forum.

I believe the topic starter was confused.   When a forum is deleted, that forum is no longer accessible.  When you try to go to that deleted the forum, the database will sometimes load a forum that has a similar address, but it is a completely different forum.  Usually when a forum is deleted, you will got a page with the message, "The forum does not exist."
