I've been with IF for 7 months now. I've been having a great time here and have made some good friends. I have been only with CID forum  most of the time. For a few days I was invited to Debate Mansion and had a good time there too, but then time constraints forced me to stick to CID forum. Also, I don't watch anything else on TV with so much dedication, that's another reason.
Before I signed up with IF, I was a silent non-member for several months. Just used to read and enjoy the posts. I later realised that there were updates of old episodes which I couldn't read without signing up, so I decided to join. Because I was reading the posts for several months before signing up, I had an idea of what posts were already there and what I shouldn't be posting.
Inspite of that I made a few blunders when I was a newbie here and was reprimanded by some seniors back then.LOL Now I find that many of the people who were active then are no more active now - the only person I remember who is still here is Debayon.
Often we find new members joining here and posting redundant threads which annoy senior members. Please look back - haven't we made the same mistakes?
Now  please let everyone know what was your experience as a newbie in CID forum? How did you discover IF and why did you join the CID forum? Did you join with a BANG and start posting or were you silent for several days before posting? Are you on other forums as well?

I discovered the forum sometime in late 2005 and joined in 2006. I was mostly a silent reader because that was the CID Special Bureau era and most people posting then were fans of the soap stars acting in it, so the gossipy topics there weren't my cup of tea. Then SB ended and the forum became quite inactive, but I still kept visiting it sometimes.

The life began once again sometime in 2008 thanks to members like Debayon and Shruti (luna_lovegood) who began discussing the new episodes of CID once again. The activity reached a high level during the Beherupiya days, and we also had many new members join and I started getting involved in the discussions again. Big smile

I don't watch any other show on TV so my activity has mostly been in the CID forum here, and sometimes in the Debate Mansion. I think I didn't really make much mistakes as a newbie, because I have been a member of quite a lot of international forums and know the general approved discipline of forums. But even then I made a stupid mistake which got me a warning, thankfully I managed to get it revoked. LOL

I joined IF in feb this year... This waa mt xams days! So wasnt able
to participate much indiscussions but went thru some posts.. Slowly it bcame like an addiction that everyday i used to go thru IF threads! For me IF meant only CID forum.. Still it is so. Big smile

initially i made a blunder! My first Poll was something like Next Acp if Acp Pradyuman leaves for some reason!!! LOL now it siunds so funny that i hate such topics!!!! On top of that, i had allowed multiple voting!! Got a bad response, but then i stopped opening topics for some days as i wanted to get the hang of the forum.. In the mean time my xams got over..

Then slowly, i was able to participate in healthy discussions... Got addicted to CID even more. Then slowly i made some frnds here... Day by day Got to know many ppl personally!

Finally came the sig camp... This made me a complete active member here! Was able to connect wid so many ppl personally! Got involved so much that day n night i was on IF! After a lot of hard work by many of us, sig camp came to an end! But my relation with IF and members was now too deep!

In the meantime, due to some personal probs i had to leave IF completely! Thats what i thot i wud have to... But situations were under control widin few days n i was bak to IF!

IF has brought me closer to my favourite show n my favourite ppl... In a way my meet wid CID team is also bcos of IF!

IF has made me a creative person!!      LOL otherwise i wud have never imagined myself writing stories... Soo many! I m glad that i cud get so many gud frnds, IF n everyone associated has become an integral part of my life now!!! Will miss IF a lot when my college strts n i get less time to come online!!! Cry

My experience with IF has been lovely and interesting.It started just casually just like I started watching CID casually.When I was very new to CID,I wanted to know more about the show and while searching I came across IF and since then it was lovely,before becoming an active member on the forums I used to be a silent member and used to read the discussions out here and loved them totally,I was actually quite inspired by Prabha di,Visrom and Drilabh and loved their discussions,moreover I wanted to know more about the characters and I really liked Abhijeet sir but didn't know why he used to be so serious,for how long these people have been a part of CID etc. I started watching CID on friday nights only in 2010 before that I used to just watch the reruns so I didn't know ki Asha had left CID and got to know of it here,moreover I got to know about Abhi sir's memory loss,then Daya sir being an orphan only,then I realised that the best part of this forums is that everyone's opinion is counted and the discussions are quite healthy out here and once I got to know quite well about CID I joined this forums,I've not been a part of any other forum because CID forums takes most of my time as I enjoy being here the most,I even remember my first post,I posted a pic from Nanhi Gavah to ask which episode is this from and Visrom was the first to answer,I really got involved in this forum only because of Prabha di's and Bento's videos thanks to which I got used to CID.
SO CID forums has indeed been a lovely experience,I enjoy being here,discussing our favourite show and actors,love u CID forums !!

Its been 7 months I joined IF. I was silent member here for about a month then joined in. Although as silent reader then also. I am mainly at CID forum. batak ate hai lekin pahunchte yahin hai. Slowly slowly I started participating. As a newbie I never got any warning may be because I speak too less over here. I was regular visitor here read all threads and participate but not so actively.  Then suddenly time came around February-March that that new sunny came to IF (I still believe) I became quite open here. Then suddenly one Thursday I wrote story and uploaded on Friday. It was type of dream to me I wrote it. I never imagined myself writing full fledged story. This continues for about 3 weeks every Thursday I got time to complete story uploaded on Friday morning. Then I realized how expressing yourself really helps you enjoy situation. I was enjoying myself.

Then journey was all smooth. Particiapted in Story Contests, sig camopaign was there, enjoyed every moment. I made so many friends here. and today I became Goldie never realised I have come so far with IF.

Sometime during the re-runs, I had suddenly gotten so obsessed with CID, I was going crazy. I wanted to talk my heart out, about CID with someone.

And one day when I was just casually searching for CID episodes on google, I came across IF- CID forums! It was as if I had found some kind of treasure trove or something. I was really excited and joined IF straight away. But, just like Bhinder and Ravi have said, even I'm used to lots of international forums. So, I knew the mannerisms and conduct of participating in the forums. So, fortunately I didnt make any bloopers as a new member.

I remember, when I joined, there was a strong notion going on in my head. "Why not make a movie based on the CID tv series?", yeah that was the first thread posted by me. I remember lots of you agreed with me and some didnt. But, all in all, I had this really good feeling for days after that thread. Because, I finally got to discuss the topic and that too with soo many people!

It's been 3 and a half months since I joined and my passion for CID is only increasing everyday, thanks to IF and thanks to all you CIDians! Love ya'll Heart
