Someone "stole" my forum Empty Someone "stole" my forum

Hi!
One month ago I decided to delete my forum on the web address www.be-politan.own0.com

5 minutes after the deletion, one "smart" member, created a new forum exactly with the same web address.

Therefore the "smart" guy obtained all the members I was tired to gather as well as with the whole "fame" of the community I was tired to make.

I know it was MY decision to delete the forum, but that is exactly the case...I decided to DELETE this and not DONATE this!
If I had some serious personal reason that this address should not exist any more, that guy along with your own tolerance, would be able to put me in serious trouble.....who takes the responsibility for that?

Is there any solution for me?

Thanks!

Hi again!
It seems I have not made myself understood.
I do not have complaints from the forum.
I want this forum to move to another address since the one it has now, has been "stolen" from me.
What exactly shall I report? The thief?

The letigation tool allows you to reporta problem, Theft or copyright

If you have had that URL (Forum Address) previously and they have stolen that then you can add that to the comments about what the issue is regards

The staff will be able to view your complaint and your worries so they will be able to organise something

So yes, report it and and explain what exactly happened

Regards

I do not agree.
The web address goes together with the members who use the address to find their forum.
Instead if he had created a forum with a brand new address, nobody would find him unless he informed some people by email!

So when he "used" the same address (without asking me and with the obvious purpose!) he automatically "took" all members I really tried hard to gather. At least he could have asked me, so I am sure the only thing he used was myself. As I said before, I deleted the forum I did not give it to someone!

Technically this is possible, There is a period where the database keeps the address active before it sorts it into the available database,

The comany i work for just resolved a problem similar with mailboxes

I managed to bag a managers mailbox lmao

However this one is on the line, I would follow through the report and the relevant people will contact you or take the relevant action
