**Rules for Thangam Forum**
* Members are forbidden from
posting any sort of spoilers and titbits before the update is posted. We
agree at times it kindles the interest but the up-daters are dissuaded
by the spoilers. They do not want to do detailed updates as the spoilers
initiate discussions and the time and effort of the updater is
disregarded. Please keep in mind that our updaters have merely
volunteered to do the updates, so we kindly request everyone to
appreciate their time and effort.
*We welcome all those who are interested in updating to join
our updaters team. Please feel free to contact the Section's
Development Team Members or any of the serial updaters via Private
Messages ahead of time. Your help is highly appreciated!
2. Bashing versus constructive criticism:
* Bashing: an act of verbal abuse or the use of foul language that can be provocative or offensive!
* Constructive Criticism: any feedback that is purely intended to improve someone else's work in future endeavors!
India-forums.com Code of Conduct strictly forbids members from
bashing actors, characters or fellow members! This includes the use of
foul language, as well as any personal remarks, i.e. how the actor looks
like, as they have no control over it! We welcome members to share
their constructive criticism on the absurdity of the story line and
character, as well as to discuss the actor's talents, however, please
refrain from engaging in any kind of bashing, which may lead to severe
3. Personal attacks/posting harsh /hurting comments.
* Each and everyone are entitled to having their own point
of view, likes and dislikes. Differences in opinions are bound to exist
in a forum like India-forums.com. However, this does not permit one to
attack their fellow members for not sharing the same point of view.
Let us respect our fellow members and refrain from making any
provocative statements, which may only lead to unnecessary quarrels.
* Members come here to relax and unwind. Quoting some one's
post and making a harsh comment begets displeasure. You have no right to
post any abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic comments which is
enough to hurt the sentiments of your fellow member. All these fictions
are not worth hurting a fellow IF ian.
4. Writing in caps
The use of capital letters to write the entire sentence is forbidden!!! Please refrain from using all CAPITAL letters as it is considered to be the equivalent of shouting on the internet!
5. Quoting post
Please refrain from quoting long posts and/or multiple posts at
once, as it lengthens the posts and may also alter the codes, making it
difficult for the readers. If you wish to reply to a post by someone
else, simply quote the member's post and delete the parts other than
the ones you wish to address. You may also use @ followed by the
member's name (for example: @Atina: your point).
*Any kind of spamming will not be tolerated, and such unnecessary
posts will be deleted without notice. Please try to stick to the
discussion topic, and not wonder off irrelevant issues. Please refrain
from spamming to increase the number of posts!
* Advertising other websites/ forums/ blogs is strictly prohibited on India-forums.com
Since this is a public forum, the main means of communication is
language. Please pay attention to the language you use. Furthermore,
there are many minors here on the forum, hence please refrain from using
any abusive or derogatory language!

immediate attention, please use the REPORT button to report to the
development team. The development team will look into the matter as
soon as possible!
9. Private Messages
It is perfectly alright to flood the inbox of your friend but
please refrain from flooding others, especially the DT's! Please feel
free to send PMs to any Developmental Team members with your questions
or concerns, however, we kindly request members NOT to spam their inbox
with unreasonable demands! Believe us, we find it difficult to keep
afloat amidst all our tasks of updating, policing and maintaining peace

this section. You may use Tamizh, English or Tanglish to update or
comment while in india-forums.com Tamil section. At times, members do
write in Manglish (Malayam combined with English) since the language is
closely associated with Tamil or in Malay to greet fellow members
(though not extensively used). Such posts (written in Malay or
Manglish) can easily be monitored as we have Development Team Members
who are well versed in these langauges. However, any other foreign
languages are not allowed!
