Alibaba’s enterprise efficiency app DingTalk has shut down its community forum for a month, the company announced on Saturday.

On the day of the announcement, an in-app screenshot showed the message “DingTalk Community system under maintenance.” A brief note explained that as a result of official reprimand for problematic content, the company would fix issues and temporarily suspend updates for the feature.

On May 13, the Community forum could no longer be found on DingTalk. As of publication, Alibaba had not responded to a TechNode inquiry for comment.
