Hello Everyone,

I would like to introduce a new procedure that we are adopting in DMG and MJHT forum. Please have a look at the rules, the warning templates, and the procedure below. I have come up with this after several concerns that you all have raised in regards to moderation.

This will be the one opportunity for members to question any rules if you have any doubts, share any concerns, or if you feel something should be edited or added.

Disclaimer/Warning: This is a suggestion post, so please do not expect me to consider every idea as that will not be possible. I will make the final call, but I am open to suggestions and criticisms and will try my level best to accommodate any new ideas if feasible.
This is not a place to take your frustration out on a particular mod. We will TRASH any post that will attack any of my DT members. If you have a complaint against any DT member then please pm me or Preeti and we will work on that matter one on one with you and the DT member. This is not the place for that. This is a place for you all to raise any questions or concerns you may have regarding the rules, new warning procedure, or functioning of the forum.

If I feel this post is getting out of hand then I will close this topic as this post is a sincere and a honest attempt on our behalf to get your feedback. I expect genuine and honest suggestions. I do not wish to read comments that are full of sarcasm and attacks as I do not get paid for this.


*** So let me introduce the new process.
You all will notice that rules (posted below) are numbered. There is a reason for that and I shall explain, but first let me give you all a general layout of the procedure.

1. First Offense - Members will receive a verbal warning on the post.
2. Second Offense - Members will receive a verbal warning, but also a warning pm.
3. Third Offense - Members will receive an increase of 20% in their WL meter with a pm informing them. 
4. Fourth Offense and so on - Members will continue to get an increase of 20 %, which will ultimately lead to a ban.

Check this chart and see the different types of warning layouts.
I am sure a lot of members will like this professional approach that we are taking while giving out warnings. From now on warnings will be only be given out in this format. Each member who breaks the rule will individually be given a warning instead of posting a warning for the whole entire thread. If the topic does not break any of the forum's rules then it will not be closed because of few members, who chose to disrupt the discussion instead they will receive a warning.

Explanation in Green



Warning Note

Dear Member, You have violated Rule(s) # ____ (as i mentioned rules will be numbered for a reason and now you will notice that number will be posted in the warning note.)

Please refer here: Link to the rules

Thank you,

IF Dev Team

Warning PM

Dear Member,

This is to inform you that you have not followed the rule more than once.

This is the link to your first offense:

This is the link to your second offense:

This is just a reminder that failure to follow the rules next time will result in a WL increase.

(Would like to mention to everyone that there will be a running list of all the warnings being posted for every individual by DT. So In this warning pm we will send you a full copy)

Thank you,

IF Dev Team

Warning Level Increase Note

Dear Member,

This is to inform you that your warning level is being increased by 20 % due to failure to follow rules after multiple warnings.

This is the link to your first offense:

This is the link to your second offense:

This is the link to your third offense:

This is a copy of the warning pm that was sent to you:  

If you have any questions regarding this action being taken please contact the channel moderators.

(Would like to mention that DT will also keep a copy of the warning pm that will be sent to alleviate confusion.)

Thank you,

IF Dev Team


Now coming to the rules:

First, let me clarify one thing: We are not raising WLs for violation of  Rules # 11  through 29 unless excessive abuse is demonstrated. We will make that call reason being some of the rules are just to keep our forum organized and there is a tendency that only newbies make those posts as they are unaware.

The rules may be found here as a sticky post and this is an edited version.
Dill Mill Gayye Forum Rules

For right now: I am also posting a copy in this thread. So everyone can go over the new edited version.

Dill Mill Gayye Forum Rules*

Channel Moderator: Gaganjot.S  -Preeti- (Incharge of Star One Channel)
-anonymous- (Moderators, who you approach first for any concerns.)
Viewbie: dmg07  N786  Sano88 (Moderators, who you approach first for any concerns.)
Coolbie: Sano88  shininggal2008 (Provides Written Updates)
  (Provides Video Updates)

*Rules for DMG Section*

1. Moderation: Not everyone on Dev Team is a moderator. Coolbies and Videobies do not fall under the category of Moderation as they only provide updates. The Moderation chain latter as follows: Viewbie > Moderator > Channel Moderator. Your first contact would be the section's Viewbie or Moderator as they will take care of day to day activities on the forum. If you have complaints regarding moderation those can be sent directly to CMs, but any other issues must be brought to the attention of Viewbies first. In case if any members feels that a warning being given is not justified or there is an error then please pm the DT member,
but do not argue on the respective post and cause disruption. If you are not satisfied with the answer then please direct the concerns to CMs. 

2. Comparison Topics/Instigating Posts/Plotting: By now, we all know instigating topics and comparison on this forum are not allowed. Some members purposely instigate others and believe they can get by with it and some plan attacks in other places and decide to disrupt the functioning of the forum. Well, it will not happen anymore.
Ex: "New interns suck... we want old interns back."
      "Which intern do you like the most or who has the most beautiful smile?"

       Or any other posts that may instigate a fight.

3. Name-Calling/Stereotyping:  Giving names to other fans: Sadma, K babez, Gober Fans, Bashers, Haters and etc. will not be tolerated. From now on name calling, bashing other fans, or stereotyping will not be allowed. In addition, comment on the show and not the viewers. It seems like half of the posts are targeted at the viewers rather than the show. Do not pass snide remarks at viewers of the show just because their interest lies in something different from yours.
Ex: "K Babez need to go to mental hospital."
      "Bashers are back just report them."
      "I dont want Gober back"
      "Sadma fans are all fake"
      "Who watches this crap"
4. Telling others what to do: I would prefer members to stop preaching on the forum. Let the moderators decide what is needed on this forum and what is not or what one member is allowed to do or not. You cannot stop someone from posting in any topic. Do not become a moral police on the forum.
Ex:  "Move on.... AR have left"
       "What are the moderators doing? Close this topic"
     "You have no shame and you proved that by opening this topic"

     "Keep out of here if you cant say anything to support this topic"
     "If you are not a fan of ___ then keep out of this topic"  
5. Utilizing Report Feature: If anyone sees a thread/post/comment which is offending posted by someone, you will NOT take law into your own hands to teach a lesson to that person for insulting your favorite idol. 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 and try our best to resolve the issue.

6. Language:  A lot of members try to use code words and asterisk and try to get away with such language. Well, It won't happen from now on. This decision has been made by the Global moderators themselves.
Ex: WTF (What the Fish is a lame excuse so do not try)
      F**K U
      "Who watches this Shit?"
7. Bashing/Personal Attacks: Bashing and making personal attacks against any actor/actress/CVs/members is not allowed. Make sure members know the difference between bashing and criticism. A critic is one who discusses things in perspective, never loses objectivity and states things in a logical and constructive way. But a basher is one, who states the points a bit too heavily such that, it no longer looks like criticism but looks like a total attack. Everyone have their own point of view let's respect it. You have right to raise your opinion but one should see lines ain't crossed. Avoid making posts that are abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic enough to affect the sentiment of another member. This is against IF COC and won't be tolerated.

Keep a control on your sarcasm. If the mods feel that your post is no longer critiquing, but is full of sarcasm/attacks... that will be held against you.
Ex: "Karan is characterless."
      "Phan girls need to move on as their gober is a cheater."
      "CVs are mental and brainless.
      "Why do you come to every single post and make a negative comment"

Also, signatures bashing actors/members will not be tolerated. If the signatures are not removed at the moderator's request then the signatures will be removed by Moderators themselves and will count as one strike.
8. No post on Dev Team working: No post/threads shall be opened criticizing the functioning of the Dev Team. If you have any issues contact the section Dev Team by PM and sort it out but do not create a scene by starting a thread here .No personal attack 'direct/indirect, abusive/sarcastic shall be tolerated.

9. Repeated Topics:
Check a few pages back before making a topic on the same point. There are way too many topics requesting old interns to come back or discussion of actors personal life . We are not saying to forget them or do not discuss them but we need to keep the forum organized as well. Look below for important links where you can discuss these matter as other topic will be closed/trashed without any notice. There has been way too many discussions on this.
Discussions/Suggestions/Requests for DMG Season 1 and 2 ,Old Interns to come back, missing them, Karan-Jenny KaJen/AR, Jennifer back in DMG and DMG ending speculations.
DMG 1&2/KaJen/AR/CV's & Jennifer Back Discuss Here ONLY
Petition to bring Kajen back on DMG
Petition to bring Kajen Back(crossed 1000 mark)
CV Topics: There are way too many topics on CV. Either you all are bashing CV or asking everyone to call them. Enough is enough. We have a petition post as well as Season 1 & 2 posts where all this can be discussed. Its one thing to post suggestions for CVs and one thing to keep creating posts bashing them and asking members to keep calling them. All CV related discussion can be posted here:
Response #6 -Get back our fav doc
we want ksg back-petition 
response+lets go to cinevistaas!
Petition to bring Kajen Back(crossed 1000 mark)
DMG 1&2/KaJen/AR/CV's & Jennifer Back Discuss Here ONLY
10. No Chatting/Spamming: Refrain yourself from chatting/spamming on the forum. Don't to start your personal chats in threads opened for various subjects/discussion topics. Please try to stick to the topic when posting replies. If you want to can create a separate thread in chat Club section & chat there but chatting in discussion topic is a big NO..

11. Updating:
If you want to do written/video update for DMG any particular day then please PM the respective updater a day in advance & take their permission so that the updater's efforts don't go in vain. Anyone posting the updates without permission his/her post will be trashed.

12. No Advertising:
Videos from other forums/websites containing the website logo are not allowed. If found doing so the topic will be trashed & a PM will be send.  If you continue to do so even then your warning level will be raised.Also posting links from IF in other forums is strictly prohibited.

13. Posting Email Address or personal pictures of Stars: Accounts or email address of stars is not allowed to be posted or revealed unless they themself give it. Also, posting your email address on open forum is not allowed. Moreover, no personal pictures of stars from facebook or Orkut are allowed to be posted.

14. Picture topics: 
We have a picture gallery and I want you all to use that. Please do not make anymore topics on pictures. If there are some special pictures that you want to post on the forum then you will have to ask Dev Team before opening a topic on pictures. We will allow picture topics on special occasion, but again only after taking permission. Post all the pictures in Picture Gallery

15. Emotions:
Do not type message or post reply full of emotions only. Emotions are used to emphasize how you feel when words alone aren't enough. They serve as 'add-ons' to your message BUT it doesn't mean that you are to type a whole line of Emoticons alone, without a single word or phrase (e.g. 'Big smile')! Messages containing only emotions  will be deleted.

16. Posting Articles: Before posting any article please check to make sure that the article has not been posted before. IF has launched its own news hub Telly Buzz. We are now in direct competition with IndianTelevision & Telly Chakkar. See to it you do not post articles from these two websites. Do not post articles from Telly Buzz directly on forum. Provide link/source of the articles.

17. Organizing Contest/Activities:
You may not post Contests/Activities/Games/Appreciation-FanThreads without prior approval from the moderators.

18. Introduce Yourself: Members who are new to this section please introduce yourself in Introduction thread instead of creating new post.

19. Promotions:  I know some of you all are very excited that you have become senior member, goldie, IF dazzlers, IF rockerz.. and we are truly happy for you all, but since this is a DMG forum those topics need to go in Congratulations Post or Meme4u Forum.    

20. Fan-Fictions: Please post FF in
Fan Fiction Forum. You may post your update in DMG Creations Gallery

21. Using Signatures: As per the rule a member is allowed to use three signature of which one can be animates small. Do not use wallpaper size signature in your signature. To know more in details you can read NEW RULES & REGULATIONS of Avatar & Signature Section. Signatures bashing actors/members will not be tolerated. If the signatures are not removed at the moderator's request then the signatures will be removed by Moderators themselves and will count as one strike.

22. Use Like Button:
Every often we see members posting thanks or tfs or one liner instead of using the Like button. The Like feature has come in place of Thank You feature so that spamming could be alleviated. Saying thanks, tfs, etc constitutes to spamming. If you have nothing more to say apart from thanks then you can thank using Like button.

23. Video Mixes:
Members can open their own VM gallery which they can update from time to time. This way one can find creations (VM's) by a particular member in one thread itself.
You can share/post your Creation in Media Zone

24. Help topics:
If you have any queries regarding the show then please post it in Help Desk/Suggestion 9 We will definitely try our best to help out there.

25. Typing in CAPS LOCK:
Please do not write in Cap Locks. If you continue to do so it will result in a WL increase.

26. Regarding AT threads: There are Appreciation Threads for all the Jodi's. Please do not create individual threads over little things that can be discussed in AT. Please remember to not chat and stay on topic. All the Physical attributes of the Actors(eyes/nose/Hair) should be discussed in the AT's of the respective Actor. Please avoid opening separate Topics for them. 

27. Morphed Pictures: We do not allow this on IF. So please refrain from posting such pictures.  You can check the below link for more details MERGING/MORPHING - NOT ALLOWED    

28. Promo Updater's:
Final Warning. We appreciate you all posting new promos, but if someone has already posted a promo do not make a new topic on the same promo. If you have a higher quality than post in the topic that is already opened. We will make sure you get credit for uploading better quality.

29. Quoting Posts/Members/Creations/Pictures: Don't quote long posts especially when it messes up the coding which makes it look bad. If you want to reply to someone use the @ format like @A:  , @B: & so on. Only upto 3 quotes are allowed in a post given the fact they are relatively small quotes and not page long essays.
Warning Level Procedure
:  Dev Team will keep a running list of members, who will continue to break rules.
1. Verbal warning
2. PM warning from Dev Team
3. WL Increase.
4. Lead to possible Ban.
If for some reason you do not agree with the warning you have received in your topic then you need to PM the moderator/viewbie who warned you instead of starting an argument in the forum. If you are not satisfied with the reply given by the DT members then you may take up your issue with the Channel Moderators. However, absolutely no arguments on the forum as that will lead to a direct increase in your warning level.   If you have any doubts/suggestions/objections regarding anything then feel free to PM me Gaganjot.S or -Preeti-
