*Rules for JDJ 5 Section*
Credit goes to SkyLight (CM for Star One/Life Ok Channels)

Here are a few rules to keep in mind before posting. Please go over each and everyone of them.

1. Moderation: Not everyone on Dev Team is a moderator. Coolbies and Videobies do not fall under the category of Moderation as they only provide updates. The Moderation chain latter as follows: Viewbie > Moderator > Channel Moderator. Your first contact would be the section's Viewbie or Moderator as they will take care of day to day activities on the forum. If you have complaints regarding moderation those can be sent directly to CMs, but any other issues must be brought to the attention of Viewbies first. In case if any members feels that a warning being given is not justified or there is an error then please pm the DT member,
but do not argue on the respective post and cause disruption. If you are not satisfied with the answer then please direct the concerns to CMs. 

2. Comparison Topics/Instigating Posts/Plotting:  By now, we all know instigating topics and comparison on this forum are not allowed. Some members purposely instigate others and believe they can get by with it and some plan attacks in other places and decide to disrupt the functioning of the forum. Well, it will not happen anymore.

3. Name-Calling/Stereotyping:  Giving names to other fans will not be tolerated. From now on name calling, bashing other fans, or stereotyping will not be allowed. In addition, comment on the show and not the viewers. It seems like half of the posts are targeted at the viewers rather than the show. Do not pass snide remarks at viewers of the show just because their interest lies in something different from yours.

4. Telling others what to do: I would prefer members to stop preaching on the forum. Let the moderators decide what is needed on this forum and what is not or what one member is allowed to do or not. You cannot stop someone from posting in any topic. Do not become a moral police on the forum.
5. Utilizing Report Feature: If anyone sees a thread/post/comment 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 idol. That aggravates matters more and you also become liable for action for reacting thus. Instead you will simply make use of the "REPORT" button, Report and report the thread by stating the reason clearly. As soon as the Dev Team comes online they would take the necessary action and try our best to resolve the issue.

6. Language:  A lot of members try to use code words and asterisk and try to get away with such language. Well, It won't happen from now on. This decision has been made by the Global moderators themselves.
Ex: W*F (What the Fish is a lame excuse so do not try)
      F**K U
      "Who watches this Shit?"
7. Bashing/Personal Attacks: Bashing and making personal attacks against any actor/actress/CVs/members is not allowed. Make sure members know the difference between bashing and criticism. A critic is one who discusses things in perspective, never loses objectivity and states things in a logical and constructive way. But a basher is one, who states the points a bit too heavily such that, it no longer looks like criticism but looks like a total attack. Everyone have their own point of view let's respect it. You have right to raise your opinion but one should see lines ain't crossed. Avoid making posts that are abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic enough to affect the sentiment of another member. This is against IF COC and won't be tolerated.

Keep a control on your sarcasm. If the mods feel that your post is no longer critiquing, but is full of sarcasm/attacks... that will be held against you.

Creating MIDS: Creating MIDs (another account) on IF is not allowed under any circumstances. Wrong usage of creating a different account will result in a WL increase without any warnings as this is a serious issue.

9. Discussions on Actor's Personal Life : You have right to comment on actors, their acting & their style while being not crossing the line but to comment on actors personal life & people who are part of their personal sphere won't be appreciated here at IF.  What any celebrity do in their personal life is their Personal Matter. Its their life & they have complete freedom to live it the way they wants to. We are no one to interfere in it.

10. Repeated Topics:
Check a few pages back before making a topic on the same point. Repeated topics will be closed. Also there are way too many topics requesting CV's for some changes in the track or for any Couple. We have maintained Threads for the Same and all are requested to continue the Discussions on them. We need to keep the forum organized as well.

11. No Chatting/Spamming: Refrain yourself from chatting/spamming on the forum. Don't to start your personal chats in threads opened for various subjects/discussion topics. Please try to stick to the topic when posting replies. If you want to can create a separate thread in Chat Club section & chat there but chatting in discussion topic is a big NO..

12. Updating:
If you want to do written/video update for this show any particular day then please PM the respective updater a day in advance & take their permission so that the updater's efforts don't go in vain. Anyone posting the updates without permission his/her post will be trashed.

13. No Advertising:
Videos from other forums/websites containing the website logo are not allowed. If found doing so the topic will be trashed & a PM will be send.  If you continue to do so even then your warning level will be raised. Also posting links from IF in other forums is strictly prohibited.

14. Posting Email Address or personal pictures of Stars: Accounts or email address of stars is not allowed to be posted or revealed unless they them self give it. Also, posting your email address on open forum is not allowed. Moreover, no personal pictures of stars from facebook or Orkut are allowed to be posted.

15. Picture topics: 
We have a picture gallery to post pictures. Please do not make anymore topics on episode pictures or normal pics from the show. If you have pictures for a particular special occasion that you want to post on the forum then you may post. We will allow picture topics on special occasion. Otherwise please post all the pictures in Picture Gallery.

16. Emotions:
Do not type message or post reply full of emotions only. Emotions are used to emphasize how you feel when words alone aren't enough. They serve as 'add-ons' to your message BUT it doesn't mean that you are to type a whole line of Emoticons alone, without a single word or phrase (e.g. 'Big smile')! Messages containing only emotions  will be deleted.

17. Posting Articles: Before posting any article please check to make sure that the article has not been posted before. IF has launched its own news hub Telly Buzz. We are now in direct competition with IndianTelevision & Telly Chakkar. See to it you do not post articles from these two websites. Do not post articles from Telly Buzz directly on forum. Provide link/source of the articles.

18. Organizing Contest/Activities:
You may not post Contests/Activities/Games/Appreciation-FanThreads without prior approval from the moderators.

19. Promotions:  I know some of you all are very excited that you have become senior member, goldie, IF dazzlers, IF rockerz.. and we are truly happy for you all, but since this is a show forum those topics need to go in Congratulations Post or Meme4u Forum.    

20. Using Signatures: As per the rule a member is allowed to use three signature of which one can be animates small. Do not use wallpaper size signature in your signature. To know more in details you can read ATTN: Signature/Avatar Size - Guidelines of Avatar & Signature Section. Signatures bashing actors/members will not be tolerated. If the signatures are not removed at the moderator's request then the signatures will be removed by Moderators themselves and will count as one strike.

21. Use Like Button:
Every often we see members posting thanks or tfs or one liner instead of using the Like button. The Like feature has come in place of Thank You feature so that spamming could be alleviated. Saying thanks, tfs, etc constitutes to spamming. If you have nothing more to say apart from thanks then you can thank using Like button.

22. Help topics:
If you have any queries regarding the show then please post it in Help Desk. We will definitely try our best to help out there.

23. Typing in CAPS LOCK:
Please do not write in Cap Locks. If you continue to do so it will result in a WL increase.

24. Regarding AT threads: There are Appreciation Threads for all the Jodi's. Please do not create individual threads over little things that can be discussed in AT. Please remember to not chat and stay on topic. All the Physical attributes of the Actors(eyes/nose/Hair) should be discussed in the AT's of the respective Actor. Please avoid opening separate Topics for them. 

25. Morphed Pictures: We do not allow this on IF. So please refrain from posting such pictures.  You can check the below link for more details MERGING/MORPHING - NOT ALLOWED    

26. Promo Updater's:
We appreciate you all posting new promos, but if someone has already posted a promo do not make a new topic on the same promo. If you have a higher quality than post in the topic that is already opened. We will make sure you get credit for uploading better quality.

27. Quoting Posts/Members/Creations/Pictures: Don't quote long posts especially when it messes up the coding which makes it look bad. If you want to reply to someone use the @ format like @A:  , @B: & so on. Only upto 3 quotes are allowed in a post given the fact they are relatively small quotes and not page long essays.

Bashing on Celebrity Fan Page: Celebrity Profiles are monitored so please do not bash there. It will result in a warning as it is against the rules.

Warning Level Procedure
You will be warned as the sequence below. The
Dev Team will keep a running list of members, who will continue to break rules.

Hi everyone,

Don't throw eggs at me! I know, its extremely late but I've just been under the weather. The never ending cycle -.-

Jhalak Dikhla Ja Amended Forum Rules

1.    Spamming - Please review the few first pages of the forum to avoid duplicate topics. Any repetitive topics will be locked and redirected to the similar topic posted earlier. Similarly, avoid one liners and emoticons spamming.

a.     Episode Discussions -Please keep episode related talk in the discussion threads opened weekly.  If you wish to praise or criticize a certain contestant's performance, specific to the episode, this is the place to be.

b.    Spoilers - There is a sticky available where all spoilers are to be posted: All Spoilers Here ! .Please keep all spoilers limited to this thread.

c.     Gushing posts -You wish to dream over a certain contestant, feel free to but please do it in their respective ATs.  Opening a topic saying XYZ is the best dancer is the world will be locked as such comments can be posted in their Appreciation Threads.

d.    Picture Gallery - Please post all pictures, screen shots in the gallery: ::Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa 5 Pic Gallery::No Comments

e.     Chat Club - Feel like discussing something random? Please join the JDJ Chat Club.

2.    Constructive Criticism vs. Bashing- There is fine a line between criticizing and bashing. Criticizing is not bashing. You are free to express your opinion as long as it abides by the forum rules. Saying that you disliked someone's performance or you didn't like his or her attire is NOT bashing. However, calling a contestant dumb for example will not be accepted.  If you want people to value your opinion, learn how to accept theirs.

3.    Instigating and mocking remarks - this includes any instigating topics. Passing side remarks for a certain fan group will only result in serious consequences. Example: calling a group, sick, low lives, stalkers , comparing them to other species etc.

5.    Comparison - however much we wish to allow comparison, sadly, it won't end well. Therefore, no comparison, to anyone.

6.    Telling others what to do - don't become the moral police on the forum. Let the Devt Team tackle the issue.

7.    Personal Life and Other Shows/Celebrities - No personal life or other show talk. Nope. None. That's it. Any topics found doing so will simply be locked. For example, if an article refers to a contestant's personal life, please avoid talking about the personal life portion. Instead, focus on the contestant.  Such threads will be monitored closely and will be dealt with given the situation.

8.    Personal Information - Please refrain from posting personal information about a celebrity (i.e. their Facebook, emails, numbers etc). Let their private life remain private.

9.    Name Calling - from this point onwards, any contestant or related will only be referred to by his or his name. Any other name will not be considered. Name calling only creates chaos as certain names can pass as instigating to another fan group. So lets keep things sweet and simple and stick to their given names.

10. Foul Language - self-explanatory.

11. Multiple quoting - Please limit the quoting to 3.  It keeps the page formatting intact.

13.  Articles from Rival Sites and Advertising -No articles for Telly Chakkar or Indian Television are allowed on India-Forums. Moreover, videos from other forums/websites logos are also not encouraged. Any topics found will be locked without a note.

14. MIDS - One ID per person. If multiple IDs are found that belong to an individual, a warning level will be issued. No questions asked.

15. Help Desk -all questions/concerns/queries should be posted in the Help Desk. New topics asking for help will be merged.

16. Caps Lock -represents shouting on a public forum. Please avoid in posting in all Caps. Caps to emphasis a specific word is acceptable.

17. Creations/Morphed images - please refer to MERGING/MORPHING - NOT ALLOWED 

18. Promotions:  I know some of you all are very excited that you have become senior member, goldie, IF dazzlers, IF rockerz.. and we are truly happy for you all, but since this is a show forum those topics need to go in  Meme4u Forum.    
Warning Level Procedure:
1.     Warning #1 - Topic/PM Wide
2.     Warning #2 - Topic/PM Wide
3.     Warning Level Increase
4.     Possible ban

Problem with the DT? - The DT can only know there is something wrong if we are aware about it. Going to other forums and complaining won't get you anywhere. Mocking the Devt Team in every single post is not acceptable. Please approach us and we'll work something out. We don't bite. Promise. If you have a serious issue with the moderation team, feel free to contract me (gk_09). There is no need to create topics discussing how the DT is doing.
Separate praise and criticism threads are welcome.  Topics will not be closed if there are a lot of topics opened for a particular contestant. We will be looking at the content of the post and comparing it with the above guidelines. 
Wish to organize a contest? Feel free to contact anyone of us and we'll be more than happy to work out something with you.
Articles can create good discussions. Therefore, we feel that articles can be posted separately. With that being said, any relative articles should be and will be clubbed together. For example, contestant XYZ's journey on JDJ has articles from 3 sources. All 3 articles will be merged into one post.
Please use to the report buttonReport. Replying to a war zone type post is like adding fuel to the fire. It will only get bigger. Once reported, the issue will be tackled within 24 hours. Your patience would be grateful.
Also, please go over I-F's COC: I-F Code of Conduct
