There has been a lot of chaos in the section in past few days. Below are some guidelines, do read these guidelines
thoroughly. Dev Team is going to see now onward that all follow the same and anyone found not doing so may face serious action. With the increase of warning meters even ban can be the option taken by the Dev Team.
Instigatory /Insulting/Abusive/Bashing Posts: Please avoid
making posts that are abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic
enough to affect the sentiment of another member. Such posts will be
dealt with very strictly. It is very frustrating to see such threads.
But reacting to them is even worse. As soon as you see a thread of this
type posted by someone, you will NOT take law into your own hands to
teach a lesson to that person for insulting your contestant. That
aggravates matters more and you also become liable for action for
reacting thus. Instead you will simply make use of the "REPORT" button
and report the thread by stating the reason clearly. As soon as the Dev
Team comes online they would take the necessary action.
Slangs/Swear words/Curses/ Profanity in Posts : This is a family forum
where we have members from 13 years of age to 70+ years visiting. So
irrespective of how angry you are, or how frustrated you are, you will
not use swear words, curses, slang's, or profanity. Anyone found doing
so will face serious action.
No Name Calling Posts : Criticism is allowed bu while criticizing, remember to not post
anything unsavory that you wouldn't like hearing about yourself spoken
by others. Any derogatory references or name callings against actors
/characters/members/Dev team members are strictly a NO NO here.
Bringing physical attributes into
discussion : Many members have been found to do the same at time even
indirectly. Such negative posts are strict NO as far as IF rules goes.
Anyone now onwards if found making negative posts on physical
appearances of a participant will face strict action, even indirect
mention of the matter will not be entertained.
Chatting in discussion threads :
It has been noticed discussions threads are turning into a
chatting/appreciation thread for contestant. There is a Chat Club &
Celebrity Fan Club section where you can chat/discuss about your
favorite contestant there. Such threads will be closed down by Dev Team.
also read Rules - Read Before Posting :)
Please do check the warning given for the bashing:-http://www.india-forums.com/forum_posts.asp?TID=1196722
We hope all members would adhere to the above guidelines and make sure to keep the atmosphere of the section friendly.
IF Dev Team
