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 awayNo
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.
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
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.
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.
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 raisedEditing 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
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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 REPORT. By 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.
