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 related comments and Fanwars:
Kindly refrain from posting mocking comments about members, fans and fan groups. There have been instances in the past few weeks where some of them were targeted in the threads just because they had different opinions. We have talked with the members abt that and any more in the future please report their posts rather than quoting them and counter arguing with them. It doesnt serve any purpose except making the threads more messy.
Opinions are always welcome, but kindly refrain from posting instigatory comments just to rile up the fans
Regarding the fan wars... Things did go overboard in the past few weeks. We have come up with some solutions and the warring groups are aware of that and they have agreed to co-operate. We do appreciate their co-operation:)
No point in opening discussion threads months before the movies release. The threads end up getting filled with chats and off-topic discussion. Either way the new articles, new updates related to the movie are posted in a new thread. Members can discuss the movie in those new threads. For chatting please make use of the chat thread that is a sticky.
Discussion thread should be opened on the same day the review thread is posted so that simultaneously members can start discussing the movie.
The whole point of the discussion thread was to have the review thread free of chatting and arguments. That makes it easier for members who look up the thread just for the reviews. After a week of movie's release, the discussion thread will be closed.
Any more discussion/posts related to the movie can be discussed in the review thread and chatting can be continued in the chat thread.
Not all movies need a discussion thread. Major movies that have a potential to reach many pages because of fan wars and arguments, discussion thread can be opened. Rest of the movies, the topic opener can reserve a post on Page one and add an index for easy access to specific reviews.
Chatting in the main threads:
Yes, we understand that many of us get carried away sometimes and we end up chatting in the main threads:) Few posts of chatting here and there we understand. All of us do that.
But in recent times we have seen pages and pages and pages of chatting going on in the threads. There are many members who want to discuss the relevant topic, pages and pages of chatting is disruptive in such threads.
General chatting, hello hi, bye bye, flirting etc... There is a chit chat thread that is a sticky for everyone's convenience.
Birthday prep threads for celebs and members:
Birthday threads are always welcome. A day or two before the birthday, thread can be opened here and we will sticky the thread. But the prep threads that are opened months before the actual date should be posted in the members lounge or the CFC section.
A day or two before the actual date you can request the mods of that section to move the thread here and we can sticky the thread here.
Rest of the rules are here. Please read.
Any more concerns/queries abt this post or anything related to the section, please feel free to PM the DT of this section.
