People just need to calm down a bit! Yeah call me preachy or whatever! People are making those posts against 'negativity because somewhere along the line we seem to have crossed over the line of decency! Why do you think khushi ( mod) had to make a post about going personal! If you see closely the discussions are no longer carried out in a civil manner! Who does it, why it happens I don't want to get into that!
Yes, the show is rocky! Things are not fine anymore but can't we all stand together and just chill! Have a good time here at the forum?! Things are too messy here! I have no objection with constructive criticism but it's going on in circles! The cv's are not listening anymore!
I came here to the forum during Sobti's leave and it was fun back then! No cold wars, no issues with members there was a good time you know! And let me remind you that time everybody was equally fed up of the kidnapping track!
Sure voice your opinions but are we turning it into a war?' even the people who defend should tone down their words! It's coming out too strong! Blaming people for not having same views! Good that people are seeing the good in the bad but please don't expect the same from others! Don't try to impose your views on the entire forum!
We all need to know that at the end of the day we all want the same thing! The show to do good! Nobody wants to' bash' the show! It's completely alright to voice your opinions but in a manner! We all are highly educated people, come from different backgrounds, country but we log in here to discuss how much we love this show!
I repeat, we all want the same thing.
Your question about what's killing the show? The Cv's are! They have a great story some beautiful tracks and if played out correctly it can do wonders!
As for the forum- yes it's disheartening to see the posts but hey one can always chose to ignore it! But I am also concerned about the reactions from the channel and PH! They could either actually listen to us and rectify the mistakes or choose to end it! That's all I am worried about!

Hi Jameelah, thank you for posting. This is how I see it. Every member is entitled to air their views according to the forum rules. They have to be respectful towards one another.. but that is not what I often see... the tone, the punctuation (exclamation marks) the fonts and colour all indicate otherwise.. There is definitely room for improvement there..</font>
<font face="Comic Sans MS, Times, serif" size="2">I believe that everyone is entitled to their opinion when presented in a respectable way .. they should not be told to chill or calm down because the forum exists to discuss the serial...Members' view may be favourable to a character or the show or may even be criticising one of the characters or the show. That is perfectly alright. But their posts should follow the rules stated on IF.. Criticism does not kill a show.. I believe in the saying "Our critics are our friends for they do show us our faults"</font>
<font face="Comic Sans MS, Times, serif" size="2">You have mentioned you joint the forum when ASR was away and found it to be calm. To be honest I have never seen a calm forum.. even then, there were those who did not like the character Bubbly or Masala Maama.. There were many posts against them... There was also those who were bored with the Kidnap track and the ever prolonging absence of of the male lead and the lack of Arshi scenes. </font>
<font face="Comic Sans MS, Times, serif" size="2">However, what worked in favour of the PH was, at that time we understood their predicament. We knew nothing much could be done when the lead was away and both the Male Lead and the CVs were trying to do their best with the resources they had.. The PH house too had the communication channel open between the fans and them .. In fact that was the time when 4Lions posted a message on the forum...</font>
<font face="Comic Sans MS, Times, serif" size="2">Now tides have changed. The PH does not take it kindly to feedback (perhaps because of all the bashing on the Social networks) ... </font>
People were sure unhappy during the kidnapping track but like you said we understood the circumstances. Right now, I truly don't know what's the main cause of this mayhem they are creating for the show?!
I am all for criticism. If we won't give them te needed feedback who will? We take out time from our busy schedule and give them the required feedback! They should listen!
My problems not with the views it's the way it's being said. I am no moderator but there is a line of decency, you cross that there is no point in discussing it further.
People have been asking me- why do I take it to heart? Why do I always react when someone is being called names well my answer to that is that we spend here most of the day! I have come to know alot of people! I've made friends here! And just a month back if you remember someone use to post topics about how stupid this show is ( newbies) they use to make account for the sake of bashing the show- at that time people stood up united! That day I realized we share the same passion! We love this show! And that's why it matters to me how the comments come out! We are talking about real people here not just a character on the screen!
If everyone is complaining then the PH needs to listen! They can't just ignore it! People have made their choices, the show is losing its viewers,ofcourse the PH needs to be blamed for such displeasure amongst the viewers!
I am Sorry I got carried away!
