My story
#1
Hey guys I will be writing a new part of my life on forums every day. Please stay tuned.


Part 1 (The Beginning) :


Last year I joined TTG, I was very known on there with 3k posts by the 5th month. I had the largest GFX shop on the site and had gained the respect of Sean, the owner. I never did anything illegal or to cause harm to anyone. I was a gold member ($6 a month) for almost 7 months. I was warned on the site twice for mini-modding. I was reporting threads and everything, but they took it as mini-modding. I got into an argument about it with another admin, and I was later banned. Six or seven months ago I was bored with my cousin, so we decided to create our own forum. At the time I knew nothing about forums, so I used freemybb.com. I advertised pretty good and by the second night we were up, we were at about 45-50 members. The only staff we had was myself and my cousin. I started needing some other dedicated members/staff so I started advertising on the MyBB forums. That is where I met Jay. The owner of the third forum I went to.



Part 2 (The good Times) :


I joined SPAM after Jay (the owner) convinced me just to join his site and not to continue progress on my forum. After talking to him and learning all of the charges for hosting/ ddos protection for my site, and after making Jay admin on my site, to help me out, he let me know that since I used FreeMyBB.com there were no DB backups or anything. That meant if I wanted to continue on my forum, I would have to start over using a real hosting company with real protection. I finally was convinced to leave my site alone and move onto his. I soon gained positive reputation on there and was deemed "trustworthy" by the owner and most members. I opened a free GFX shop on there. I made many new friends and applied for staff. I didn't receive staff, but I got the next best thing. Within 2 weeks of my stay at SF I became the content manager of the sites YouTube channel. The channel at first had only about 11 or 12 subscribers and just over 50 video views. After I started recruiting users to join, we soon sky rocketed in views and subscribers. After week 3 of my position as manager, we had over 400 subscribers and over 2k video views. The dream of becoming a big YouTube channel was shot down after the account was closed for "Hacking" tutorials. That is when things took a turn for the worst.


Part 3 being added tomorrow.

Well, great story. I was banned/denied support on MyBB.com for having a hacking/leaking related website, so I created another account. Don't tell them that. Seriously, don't.

Also, your story is inspiring because it shows how successful you became and all that. Too bad they cancelled your account. How come there are other videos that show how to hack PayPal that YouTube ignores? Not fair, in my opinion.

This is what I was trying to figure out. I'm not to sure what video was violating the YouTube ToS, but we did get shut down completely.
