Since there as been a lot of rules being broken here we thought to put of the rules.
-Credit for the write up goes to Jyoti06-
Here are a few Basic Rules Which Need to be Followed by members of the YIH Forum.
For IF Code of Conduct check out IF Codes of Conduct.
- As more & more members are joining the YIH Forum, Please avoid
posting "New Topics" for your introduction eg: "Hey i'm new" "Hi" "New"
etc. Post it in the Introduction Thread! Any separate topic opened will
New Topics -
Before posting a New Topic, please check the first 2-5 pages to see if
there is a topic on the similar subject. Use the search Toolbar
otherwise! 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. Please DO NOT turn the forum into a Fan Club of a
particular jodi / character, try to post variety of topics.
Posting Articles - Before
Posting an Article, Please check the first 2-3 Pages to see if there the
article has already been posted. Do try and provide the source link of
the article. Articles from "tellychakkar" are not permitted on IF and
such articles will be trashed by the Dev. Team.
While posting articles from TellyBuzz, only give the link to the article. Do Not copy and paste the entire article here.
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" etc. will not be allowed, as such
polls just end up in chatting or fights and hurt the feelings of members
of the forum. Moreover comparisons between actors / shows / serials is
not allowed on IF as it again ends up hurting the feelings of members
and also leads to fights between members and forums.
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 Update Requests - Please be patient for the updates. Please DO NOT open topics asking for updates, they will be posted as soon as available.
If you are not assigned to do the updates then please do
not post updates. This is not fair as the updater spends time in doing
the update and when they come to the forum they find it already done and
posted, it puts the updaters work to waste. The schedule of Updaters
can be found here ll~llYeh Ishq Haaye Updates Archievell~ll
No Advertising - Advertising
is STRICTLY AGAINST the IF COC. Advertising other forums thru Video
links is considered as spamming. Such topics will be trashed and a
Warning PM will be sent to you right away. If you choose to ignore the
warning, your Warning Level will be raised.
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 jodi. 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.
- Bashing Dev. Team Members is strictly against IF Rules.
Warning Levels will be raised of members found bashing the Dev. Team. If
you have any issues contact the section Dev Team by PM and sort it out.
No personal attack direct / indirect, abusive / sarcastic, within or
outside the forum shall be tolerated. Do remember that Moderators too
have feelings just like you and any bashing would hurt their feelings.
Lets all live in Peace and Harmony and enjoy healthy
discussions. If you have any problems you can always contact the Dev.
