This is the last straw!
the past few days a number of topics have been reported. They're either
repeated posts, contain bashing, comparison topics or there is nothing
wrong with them and certain group of members just want them to be
Let me remind you that repeated posts, bashing, comparing etc. are not
allowed on the forum. By now everyone is familar with the rules and
we've reminded everyone time and time again and yet this still seems to
be a problem.
Having the same content but just wording it differently/going into more detail does not mean that it's not a repeated post. It is because the content is similar.
we've noticed in the threads that contain bashing, it was due to
instigating posts. There is no need to instigate others and create a
fight. If you don't agree with a thread then simply state your opinion
and leave it at that instead of posting sarcastic remarks with the
intent of angering other members. Instigating is also against the rules
and those who do so will face the consequences but regardless of that,
those who reply back to such posts also make matters worse. There is no
need to reply back and take matters into your own hands. Just simply
click the report button and continue the discussion while ignoring the
Also, making side
notes like " @ bashers" is the same as instigating because you're
allowing others to reply back to you. There is no need to acknowledge
those that are bashing. Ignoring them is good enough.
thing, if you don't agree with a post, don't report the post and giving
an explanation that does not match the description. If you see a
negative post on the forum, it doesn't mean that it's considered
bashing. Members are allowed to post their opinions, positive or
negative, provided that they follow I-F rules. A few members have
complained about other members posting negative comments even though
they don't watch the show. Even if they don't watch, they're allowed to
post their opinion.
This all might sound repetitive but I can't help but to stress all this to you guys. Having said all that, this is a FINAL WARNING
to all of you. We've been patient long enough and have reminded all of
you about the rules and yet they're not being followed. From now on,
failure to follow the rules of the forum will result in a raise in WL. There will be no more reminders sent to members. Enough is enough.
