Private Forum on Frihost





jipmerite
I would like to make a private forum with my friends. Membership will be by invitation only and users cannot see anything of the forum without signing in. Not even the topics or catagories or anything.

Question is, is this allowed on the Freehost server?
Bondings
Do you mean on your hosting account? In that case, yes you are allowed to host one or more forums on your account. Whether you make the forums public or private, is completely up to you to decide.

Please note that the fact that the forum is private, doesn't allow you to host warez/porn/serials/... on those forums - the same TOS rules apply to your whole account.

If private forums are allowed how does one find out if warez is being hosted on the account or links to warez sites are being given?

Bondings still has access to the ftp and databases of every single account...he'd still know Wink

Okay, that just gives me a doubt. What if the users who sign up on my forums give links to such sites there? Is that allowed? I could delete them when I see them, of course, but what if I am like, away for a few days?

So how does he suspect that a particular site has the warez in it? There may be one or ten or a hundred links in it to warez site.

Even he has to search the databases it is not going to be easy. Also he doesnt have time for coding and stuff. How will he manage to search then?"

That is Cool.

But what if a user links to a porno pic that is hosted in an image hosting site like photobucket? That means that the pic is not exactly hosted on Frih right?
Bondings
jipmerite and saratdear in that case it is your job to remove that post/image as soon as possible. It's usually very easy to see whether it is done by a spammer or condoned/done by the staff themselves.

And scorpio, there are ways to find out those things. Sure it's not always that easy, but eventually pretty much all accounts violating our TOS are removed.

Coming from someone that has used resellers... its really easy to find stuff like this out. There are ways around it. So don't even try it.
