Everyone has noticed the unrest and divide that is very much apparent on the forum for quite some time now, for a while there was an unspoken ceasefire but it seems that there has been an escalation in argument in the forum. This has erupted from fangroups feeling targetted and confusions as to what can be posted and what should not be posted.  The Dev team for the D3 Forum (Juleka and Shruti) have brought together a few rules which we believe if the forum members adhere to will lead to eventual peace and less arguements.

This is the LAST & FINAL warning for EVERYONE and after this if we find ANYONE (be it a newbie or an old member)  trying to upset the healthy atmosphere at this forum, you'll be getting a WARNING METERstraight away

No PM's would be sent giving you all any further warning or anything and nor will anyone be given last chance. Strict action is going to be taken straight away. No apologies will be accepted either.

Do read these guidelines thoroughly. Dev Team is going to see now onward that all follow the same and anyone found not doing so may face serious action. With the increase of warning meters even ban can be the option taken by the Dev Team.


Insulting/Abusive Posts: We have always asked forum members to refrain from making posts  that are abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic enough to affect the sentiment of another member. Constructive Criticism about the show is allowed but avoid bringing in other shows/actors who are not part of the show. Members have difference of opinion no doubt you can't expect all the fingers of one hand to be same do you? You are free to raise your opinions not forgetting limits of decency. Things can be said in a more civilized manner rather than being brutal. If you do not like a character, criticise the character but NOT the actor. Same goes to fans too. If you see a criticism against a character, please do not jump in to defend the Actor/actress, for it is only the character that is getting criticised. If anyone is at fault then it is the story plot.
So I guess from this the question arises what is the difference between constructive criticsm and bashing, constructive criticsm is where a member voices their opinion without the use of foul, derogotory or insulting language and are able to state without subjagation where they have derived their opinion from.
For example ' I think Person A was really crap today and they cannot act to save their life' this is not constructive criticsm however 'I think Person A could have protrayed themselves better if they had put more emtion into their feelings for example when they stated...' this is constructive criticsm and will be allowed on the foruim


Personal Attacks/Sarcastic Comments/Assumptions: If members come across a POV which you do not agree with, try to ignore the post or simply state you own POV saying "I disagree with you for so and so reason" instead of saying "Just stop your nonsense" or 'if you think this then you are dumb'. IF is a discussion forum at the end of the day and everyone is allowed to post their views without the threat of feeling that they will be attacked for their opinions, just like you are allowed to say what you think so is the next person.  But with that in mind you are to make sure your comments are constructive and not instigative to cause arguments on the forum.

Please refrain from making assumption regarding other people an fangroups, comments such as 'Fangroup of A always starts fights and they expect us to take it' or 'fangroup of A always make a ruckus when things dont go their own way' 'Fangroup of A think they are better then us'  comments like this will only leads to arguements and it is for the betterment of the forum that members refrain from making such assumption.

Also refrain from making comments which allude to members of the forum being better behaved/fangroups acting in a manner or conducting themselves in certain manner, this indirectly alludes to state that other members or fangroups are either behaving in this manner or not, which obviously would cause other members to feel targetted and could be seen as an insult.  For example comments such as ' We x fans always appreciate the production house and dont retaliate' or 'we always maintain ourselves on the forum'  or ' we dont indulge in showering the CV's with appreciation'.  Such comments insinuate that other members either do this or dont do this which is making assumptions and would lead to arguments on the forum

Name Calling Posts While criticising, remember to not post anything unsavory that you wouldn't like hearing about yourself spoken by others.   Any derogatory references or name callings against actors /characters/members/Dev team members are strictly a NO NO  here.  On every forum we do like to call charcters by Nicks or join names together, whilst this is allowed, please make sure just nicks are not insulting or deemed to be derogoroty to their respective fans.  So name calling such as 'Miss Ego',  'Nautanki' or 'Miss Mahaan' (these are examples) will not be tolerated on the forum


Comparison Topics/Instigating posts: There is a lot of comparison posts on the forum as of late so we would like to point out what is allowed and what isnt.  Comparison to do with episodes or the track itself is allowed, for example if there are two dance off on the episode if someone makes a posts stating which of the dances they liked best and why, this discussion will be allowed.  But general posts which states who is the better dancer, who has the most fan following, which couple look better, who is more supportive etc are not allowed as these are more general and would ultimately lead to arguments.  But whilst making such a topic the member has to be sure that their posts is without malice or bias and would enable all parites to out their case forward, but whilst doing that another charcater is not put down to make your point.


Couter-Posting
Refrain from making counter posts on the forum, for example if you see a post which you feel you do not agree with in believe to be insulting/instigatory or abusive, DO NOT then go an create another topic in relation to it counter arguing the post maker, this only leads to further disrests and more arguments breaking out in the forum.  If you come across any posts which you believe are not in accordance with the D3 COC just REPORT and let the moderators of the sectio handle the situation
 
 
Duplicate Posts Do check the last 4-5 pages of the forum before making a post to see whether or not the topic has been posted already.  Refrain from making duplicated topic regarding the same issue/point on the forum, this is so discussion can remain consise and the the forum is run more effiecently, also members will not then have to post the same discussion on several threads.  This is also lead to an increase in discussion as its not spread out all over the forum in different threads.  It is not the quantity of posts on the forum but the quality that matters.  All posts of similar nature will be merged with the previous post. Continous disregard will lead to warnings
 

Making MIDs to bash the Actors,Creatives and Characters: This has increased in the last few weeks.There are many members who are creating Multiple IDs just to bash the actors,creatives and the characters.Dev Team can very well find out the members who are having more than one ID and if someone is found guilty then that member might immediately face a straight ban.So its a request that if any member is having doubts on any particular Member ID kindly report it or pm any one of the Dev team member. Creating MID is not allowed and without a justified reason will lead to warning levels being raised


Editing Titles When a title has been amended by a Dev Team or a note has been put into a members posts, please refrain from editting such posts, this will be seen as going against the code of conduct and the members will be reprimanded


Personal Lives of Actors
Refrain from posting comments on the personal lives of actors and what they do in their own time. Their personal lives is just that private and personal and we do not have any right to criticse what that do in their own life and to dictate what they should or should do or who they should or shouldnt be with.  Furthermore making posts about other people connected to the actors should also be avoided.  Unless the actor is doing some sort of promotion or work related this can be posted, but not what they do in their own time


Pictures You are allowed to post pictures in relation to the episodes on the forum, but all other pictures should be posted in the picture gallery instead.  Henceforth all such pictures which are not related to the episodes will be closed and the pictured moved to the gallery.


One Liners Detailed discussions on the episode can be condutted on the Main Forum, please post all one liners/ short sentences regarding the episode in the 
Episode Discussion Thread, This is the reason the thread was created.  This so discussion can be kept consise and will not make the forum look messy having several posts open regarding the same episode.  As mentioned detailed discussion posts can still be created in the main forum.  Henceforth all one liner episode discussion posts will be moved to the Discussion Thread. Continous disregard will lead to warnings


Report Button: If instigating topics are not allowed nor do we appreciate members taking law in their hands and jump in the topics with their weapons to defend their favorites or keep reminding about using report button again and again. If anyone sees any comment/thread which is offending posted by someone, you will NOT take law into your own hands to teach a lesson to that person for insulting your favorite. That aggravates matters more and you also become liable for action for reacting thus. Instead you will simply make use of the "REPORT" button and report the thread by stating the reason clearly.

Please keep in mind moderators are also members. We would also like time to make our own posts. We also have our own lives and cannot be here 24/7. Please allow a reasonable time frame of at least 24 hours before escalating the issue and PMing a moderator. We try to address reports as soon as we can. Please avoid PMing the moderators unless the issue has been neglected for way too long or it is an extremely pressing matter. Instead of mass PMing it would appreciated if one person PM's the concern DT with regards to the issue.

And lastly it would be a good idea if fangroups refrain from posting in each other's topics this will lead to less arguements breaking out, for example if fangroup A makes a post regarding their fangroup and uses constructive critisms against another couple to state their opinion, this is allowed to the extent that they do not use abusive, insulting or derogorty points to make their opinions.  The best action to do here if the respective fangroup not comment on such threads, however if anyone does notice that rules are being broken with the use of profanity or insults to respective couples or fans then please DO NOT comment and just REPORTBy commenting on such posts you yourself are then liable to be reprimanded for your actions.

The Dev Team hopes that all members are able to abide by the above rules for the betterment of the forum and to maintain peace. If you have any queries regarding these rules feel free to PM either me (Juleka) or Shruti.
