Perhaps I can help you understand why your thread was removed from the other forum. Your thread was moved to this forum because it is the most appropriate for your concerns. The Site Discussions Forum is for the purpose of Q&A regarding WetCanvas! Features: content, forums, new features, Tech support,....
Several staff persons are doing their best to answer your question which is a technical one and I regret that you are not as yet satisfied, but you are getting straight answers to the best of our abilities. If you still have concerns you might want to go directly to ownership which is F+W Media .
You have several options before you now and which of them you choose is up to you.
I hope you will continue to enjoy WetCanvas.

Re: Please help

My request was, is, to have everything I have posted on Wet Canvas be removed. As I've requested twice.
Thank you.

Re: Please help

Wet Canvas is not a secure site which is easily determined by the lack of HTTPS (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol Secure)at the beginning of the URL. As such, users are more likely to encounter problems after or during sign-in to the site than they would be using a secure site. The recent attack on Wet Canvas servers/site with members being redirected to a pornography site is ample evidence of the problems that can arise. The reported message is factual and probably should not be seen as a problem but as fair warning. Perhaps the real fix would be to ensure everyone signing in sees the message with a member choose-able option to not see it again

After reading through the thread in its entirety it is obvious the OP had some concerns that were, basically, brushed aside as problems of his own making despite a post by an administrator that the problem still exists on the Wet Canvas side of the portal. OP's frustration is understandable and only became obvious - without any apparent disrespect- as a human response to how he was treated. Any disrespect seems to be directed at OP.

Altruism: unselfish regard for or devotion to the welfare of others (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/altruism)

That said, I think you volunteers do a pretty good job most of the time.

Re: Please help

I'm afraid the problem is with the site owners and operators. They know of severl problems with the site and are considering updating it.

The voluntary admins and moderators have no access to the site.

Re: Please help

So, Yorky. . . if an "Admin" doesn't have access to the server. . . what, in fact, differentiates a mere Moderator from an "Admin?"

The voluntary Admins don't have access to the server, only the management functions which enable us to administer registrations, ban spammers etc. Moderators have even less permissions.

F+W have a technical team who do that.

Re: Please help

Hey Yorky,

The issue I've been having--not being able to post internal or external links, does not seem to be limited to any one forum. A few minutes ago, I tried to post to the "What Are You Listening To?" thread a link to a YouTube video of Roxy Music's cover of John Lennon's Jealous Guy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hRzGzRqNj58

Then, the post automatically went to what I've been calling "Moderator Jail" and didn't show in the thread. It seems to be specific to my account.

You Admins don't have access to the server. But, as it has been pointed out by others, WC is running an OLD version of the vBulletin software.

Could it be that the server has been compromised by holes in the outdated code?

Thanks,
DLL

Re: Please help

The moderation by-pass is not limited to your account, it is affecting many users randomly. Moderators are doing their best to check post and threads awaiting moderation regularly throughout the day. I just validated 4 posts including one of yours.
