Guidelines for Members(Old/New)

Hello Members.

Here are a few Basic Rules which need to be Followed by members of the CID Forum at all times.
For IF Code of Conduct check out: IF Codes of Conduct


CID Forum Information -

Please check the CID New Archive Mansion 2010.  This contains all important information & happenings about the CID Forum.

For videos of Classic Cases then please check Archives: CID CLASSIC CASES[UPDATED] .

For CID related queries  please check CID Queries [NOT Video Requests]

New Topics - Before posting a New Topic, please check the first 2-3 pages to see if there is a topic on the similar subject.  If there is one then please continue the discussion in that topic.  Posting multiple topics on the same subject wastes forum space and also counts as spam.  Any such similar/same subject topics opened will be closed/deleted.

Polls - A Poll opened on any important issue to get the views of members of the forum is fine, but opening polls everyday and about the same thing eg. "Hottest Actor" "Fav. Character" "Who looks better" " Worst Actor" "Worst Case" etc. will not be allowed, as such polls just end up in chatting or fights and hurt the feelings of members of the forum. 

The Dev. Team requests members to open interesting discussion topics, instead of opening comparison polls.  Any such polls opened will be closed or trashed by the Dev. Team. 

No CAPS - Posting in all Capital Letters is not permitted.  This represents "shouting" on the internet and can be viewed as offensive.  In order to stress a word or a couple of words that can be written in Capitals or in Bold, but please DO NOT write the whole post in Capitals or Bold or large font size.

No Personal Attacks / No Bashing - Bashing is NOT allowed here!!! That goes for members, actors, characters and Dev. Team members.  Please keep in mind that when you bash a character or an actor it may hurt the feelings of other members of the forum and can cause conflict on the forum.Some members have the habit of taking pot shots at fellow members including the Dev. Team, especially if they make any post criticizing something regarding the show or a pair. Please DO NOT take personal digs at members including the Dev. Team nor make fun of them or their posts.  Be prepared to hear criticisms as well, to get more participation discussions are needed and not just praises. If you feel the criticism is wrong, reply to it properly within the limits of IF COC. What some of you are doing is breaking the COC.

NO COMMENT - Please DO NOT post comments in Topics labeled as "NO COMMENTS".  They will be trashed by the Dev. Team, and you will be sent a Warning PM and by the 3rd time your warning meter will be raised upto 20%

DO NOT COPY PASTE TELLY BUZZ ARTICLES- Remember someone has given effort while writing and editing the entire article for us but when you lift the article you are depriving the writer off his/her credit. We encourage you to go read the article and rate the post to appreciate the efforts by the authors and reporters.


Fan Creations - While making Siggys and Avis do keep in mind the contents of your signature do not offend a member or does not criticize an actor in anyway. The signatures should be posted in  CID MW/CID SB Creative Corner II  at all times.

Similar Topics ' This is a sincere request to all members.  Please DO NOT open multiple topics on the same or similar content.  This is in no way meant to discourage members from posting topics, but its a request with the view to be fair to all posters and all topics.  Cause if all similar topics come to page 1 then other topics which are equally interesting and important and of varied nature go to page 2 and receive less views and replies and sometimes totally ignored.

Topics of Comparison-Please refrain yourself from creating topics that may lead into fights. Topics like  'Who is better suited for the role' or 'Which show is better' or 'Who looks good' etc. Such topics will be closed down.

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 title 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.

There is separate section named Chat Club you can chat there. Don't post topics that are not related to the CID.  Don't spam any thread repeatedly with emotions.

Edit : There's a new chat thread for CID forum members on the Chat Club. This is the thread.

Expectations - I think the CID cast/producers/directors work as a team and as a family and that is why they are successful in giving us such a good show to watch.  I feel each and every actor in the serial is important and has a role to play and is doing it very well and its all a team effort.

It is understandable that at times the story may not go according to our wishes or the actors do not perform as per our expectations.  Every member has a right to express their views, express them and move forward, instead of holding yourself to that one point, try to enjoy the serial as a whole. But please remember our forum has members of all age groups, therefore please continue discussions that are suitable for all ages.

Remember- CID is a crime investigation show not a show for kitchen politics (hook ups/break ups). You will not see actors getting married or hanging around in parks or singing songs in the rain. You will see some fantastic officers who are fighting against various crimes every weekends. Therefore when you create a fan fiction or a discussion please keep in mind that CID is a CRIME INVESTIGATING DEPARTMENT

These are Very Basic Guidelines which i'm sure most of you should be aware of. Please follow these at all times while posting in the section

If anybody has any Objections/Questions/Queries. Please PM me.

Thanks for Reading,
CID  Dev Team
