Post PORNO ADVERTISING
Post Re: HUGE ADVERTISING BANNER -Not Resolved at all.

This issue is NOT resolved at all. I most certainly did NOT agree to have porno advertising on my community forum if you don't mind. This is an absolute disgrace! Who or what type of individual in your organisation thinks that it is perfectly acceptable to degrade women in this way ....exploitation is a HUGE NO NO in my world and I DID NOT agree in your terms and conditions to PORNO ADVERTISING!

HUGE ADVERTISING BANNER
Could someone please let me know why there are huge advertising banner-boxes on these freeforums. I had no idea that there would be such intrusive banners on freeforums.org which is supposed to be banner free. The advertising is highly intrusive and disgusting and seems to be exploiting women, otherwise they are advertising escort agencies and the like. Not at all what I expect my visitors to see on the brand new forum I am in the process of setting up. I am advising them to stay away from my new forum until I resolve the issue. Also emails are being automatically sent to registered users without my permission, and I am receiving replies from the people to emails I never even sent out. What on earth is going on here! VERY Unprofessional!

Hello,

Our service is ad-supported, which means that ads are placed on forums so that we can generate revenue to support running this service. I'm not sure where you read that we are "banner-free", as ads come in different sizes, and wider rectangular ads are used at the top and bottom of the forum as they fit the best there.

The emails you are referring to is most likely the 'Inactive Member Reminder" mod, which can be edited, or disabled, from the Mod Center in your ACP. This is designed to increase activity to your forum, so it is recommended to keep it on though.

i didnt know they had those kinde of banners on here... i knew they did things like toyota and things like that, but if any of the dads of my friends saw porno banners on the forum i'd have alot of explaining to do.... if these things do exist how do i keep then from being shown on my forum... i'd hate for my friendships to end over this kind of thing i didnt even know about!!!

Post Re: PORNO ADVERTISING
That is what I am trying to find out too Ryuu. No one has explained as yet. Perhaps they think it acceptable that our forums are a captive place to advertise filthy scum to innocent folk. I wouldn't have mined acceptable text adds and the like, even although all their advertising clearly states...NO ADVERTISENG..EVER!

But to have great hulking flashing adds displayng women's body parts for sale is one big no no .

Clearly their admins couldn't care less...I can't see any explanation here...can you?

well as i am only 15 i cant think why they would advertise this kind of things knowing that kids will go on here. only explaniation i can think of is this: someone hacked them and made that banner... it sounds unlikely but it is possible, and has been done on other forum sites, turst me i know from experience.... but still this kind of thing is unnacceptable, and will lose them alot of people cause of it, so they should get ridd of such banners ASAP.

Good day.

I can assure you that porn advertisements and banners are not allowed on our forums, as they violate the Terms of Service. If you see an innapropriate ad, please send a screenshot of the ad, and the link that the ad links to as well, and we will take care of it.

Reports for innapropriate ads are very rare. You shouldn't have to worry about that. Of course if you were to stumble across one at any time, you know what to do.

Also, if either of you are Staff, you can enable the No Ads For Staff mod in the Mod Center of the ACP, and that will prevent Staff members on your forum from seeing any ads. This of course does not affect Registered Users or Guests.
