Welcome to Supernatural Section. We sincerely hope you have a great time here. We take this opportunity share the rules and regulations developed specifically for this section with all our members to ensure a peaceful atmosphere. We request everyone to read through these rules and are hoping that all our members will abide by it. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the Development Team Members. We hope you all have a pleasant time here!
**Rules for Supernatural Forum**
Currently SN is only being moderated by Aahaana, so please direct all your queries to me!
2) No Moral Policing
Please refrain from engaging in any moral policing around the SN forum. If you find anyone breaching rules, please Report the topic and or contact the section DT (Aahaana). The section DTs will deal with the issue at the earliest possible. India Forums is a platform to allow everyone to express their opinions freely within the COC and respectable limitations. Members have the freedom to express their own perspective, which may disagree and or contradict someone else's point of view. Everyone is welcome to express their opinions within the SN rules and IF COC. Hence moral policing will NOT be tolerated.
3) Bashing vs. Constructive Criticism
* Bashing: an act of verbal abuse or the use of foul language that can be provocative or offensive!
* Constructive Criticism: any feedback that is purely intended to improve someone else's work in future endeavors!
India-forums.com Code of Conduct strictly forbids members from bashing celebrities, the characters they portray on screen and fellow members! This includes the use of foul language, as well as any personal remarks, i.e. how the actor looks like, as they have no control over it! We welcome members to share their constructive criticism on the absurdity of the series's story line and character, as well as to discuss the actor's talents, however, please refrain from engaging in any kind of bashing, which may have severe consequences.
4) Personal attacks and Posting harsh /hurting comments
* 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 come here to relax and unwind. Quoting some one's post and making a harsh comment begets displeasure. You have no right to post any abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic comments which is enough to hurt the sentiments of your fellow member. All these fictions are not worth hurting a fellow IFian. Please do remember this.
5) Quoting post /chatting
*Please refrain from quoting long posts and/or multiple posts at once, as it lengthens the posts and may also alter the codes, making it difficult for the readers. If you wish to reply to a post by someone else, simply quote the member's post and delete the parts other than the ones you wish to address. You may also use @ followed by the member's name (for example: @Aahaana: your point).
*Please refrain from chatting in the discussion threads, which are meant exclusively for the topics in discussion.
kind of spamming will not be tolerated, and such unnecessary posts will
be deleted without notice. Please try to stick to the discussion topic,
and not wonder off irrelevant issues. Please refrain from spamming to
increase the number of posts!
* Advertising other websites/ forums/ blogs is strictly prohibited on India-forums.com.
7) Repeated Topics
avoid posting the same topics more than once. We kindly request
everyone to check the section (through the search feature) if the topic
you intend to post has already been posted or not prior to proceeding.
The already exciting thread may not have the exact same point you intend
to post but you can always add your view/point and join the discussion.
8) Organizing Contest/Activities/Games
Any sort of contests and activitiy threads cannot be opened without receiving prior permission from moderators. Do PM the moderators for permissions.
9) Writing in caps
The use of capital letters to write the entire sentence is forbidden!!! Please refrain from using all CAPITAL letters as it is considered to be the equivalent of shouting on the internet!
10) Multiple ID (MID)
India-forums.com Code of Conduct strictly prohibits members from having multiple IDs. Please refrain from making MIDs, especially to bash celebrities, characters and/ or member. If ever convicted with having MIDs, all except the most active ID will be inactivated, followed by a raise in W/L to the active ID.
11) Appreciation threads
We have allowed appreciation threads to discuss about the respective actors/couples. So please stick to the topic and do not wonder away with non-relevant discussions. Do not use AT to chat, or talk about other characters/actors. NO AT can be started without the moderator's permission and do not turn the forum into just ATs, as SN is about the show and not just fan club for any particular actors. If any AT is seen to breach the rules, they will be dealt with severity.
12) Fan creations/Video mix/Fan fictions
Please use the creation gallery to post your creations and do not open a separate thread for that purpose. Please avoid quoting creation as it slows down the pages and do not chat there. We will not, under any circumstances accept morphed pictures and creations. check the link for furthermore details: Imp -Imp - Regarding to merging/ morphing
You can however, have your own video gallery where you update your video mix from time to time.
Fan fictions can be posted in the fan fiction section but one shot can be posted on the forum, under one shot corner.
Since this is a public forum, the main means of communication is language. Please pay attention to the language you use. Furthermore, there are many minors here on the forum, hence please refrain from using abusive or derogatory language!
14) Report Button
If you come across any issue on the forum that may require immediate attention, please use the REPORT button to report to the development team rather than trying to solve the matter yourself. The development team will look into the matter as soon as possible!
hereby request our members to abide by the rules. If anyone breaks the
rules, the Development Team will give a verbal warning. If the member
continues to break the rules, they will receive a written warning via
Private Message from the Development Team, followed by subsequent raises
(20% at a time) in warning meter! If the warning level reaches up to
100%, it automatically leads to a BAN! The Development Team members are
always available to help you.
Please feel free to contact any one of us with any genuine problems or issues. We will get back to you at the earliest. We wish you all a pleasant journey here, and have a great time interacting and making new friends here.
