No Slangs/Swear words/Curses/ Profanity in Posts : The use of foul language is STRICTLY PROHIBITED on the forum. Whether the word is written in its complete format or abbreviated, it is still not allowed under any circumstances. This is a family forum where we have members from 13 years of age to 70+ years visiting. So irrespective of how angry or how frustrated you are, you will not use swear words, curses, slang's or profanity. Anyone found doing so will face serious action.Should members come across such language please do report the post. Use of such language will lead to warnings and warning level raised for repeat offenders.
Spamming/Chatting/Quoting : Refrain from posting single consecutive pictures/creation in the gallery, this can be considered 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 title when posting replies in discussion threads - chatting in discussion topics is NOT allowed.
It has been noticed people are making posts with very long quotes, try to avoid this as it makes the pages lag due to the large amount of quoting and takes longer time for page to load. Instead use the @ sign and write the name of the person you wish to reply to if you want to reply to various people. QUOTING in order to save the evidence is NOT allowed. YES. You can quote/ screen shot but you are NOT allowed to quote and post in a thread you are not supposed to be posting in. If you are found quoting a post and posting it in the forum instead of PMing the Mods, your WL will be raised.
Advertising : Please DO NOT post content from Indian Television, ITvF, urlremoved and TellyChakkar, these posts will be trashed, and repeated occurrences of this may lead to members receiving a warning. Also refrain from posting videos which have site logos on them (i.e watermarked with the sites web address) although we realize that many members are not posting these to advertise the websites, but you are still indirectly advertising the sites by posting video links which are watermarked.
Social Networking Sites : Content from Facebook, Twitter, Myspace etc etc are not allowed to be posted on the forum. This is a forum wide rule that has been implemented by the admin/owners of india-forums.com. Such posts will get closed and repeat offenders may have their warning level raised
Personal lives & Non Qubool Hai Topics : This section is only intended for the discussion of the show Qubool Hai and topics related to it. Any topics or posts about the personal lives of the actors or makers outside the show will NOT be allowed unless it has a clear and direct relationship to the show. Any topics or posts judging or commenting on the personal life of the people who play the characters will not be allowed. While certain issues are related to Qubool Hai, if you want to discuss issues like morality, censorship, marriage and relationships on a broader scope beyond the limitations of the show please take it to other appropriate discussion sections.
Forum Issues : Do not bring forum issues into the threads under any circumstances - if you have any problems with any of the threads on the forum - either report them or PM the dev team members of the forum. DO NOT create posts to discuss forum issues and DO NOT start discussing forum issues in threads already open.
No Update Requests : Please be patient. Do not create topics asking for written or video updates. The updates will be posted as per the updaters' convenience. If you are not assigned to do the updates then please do not post updates. This is not fair as the updater spends time in doing the update and when they come to the forum they find it already done and posted, it puts the updaters' work to waste. Incase you want to update for any particular day kindly PM and take permission from the updater.
No Comments : Do not post replies or comments under topics which bear the phrase 'No Comments' in their title or within the post. As the title suggests, it is not meant to be replied to. If you wish to comment or reply or thank the author, you may PM the author of the post or topic.
Posting Email Address/Personal Information of Actors : Accounts, email addresses and personal pictures/information of actors are not allowed to be posted or revealed unless they themselves give it. Also, posting your email address on open forum is not allowed - it really isn't safe!
Posting Articles : Before posting any article please check the first few pages or use the "Search" bar which is located in the right side of the forum, above the "My Last 10 Topic/Popular Topics" section, to make sure that it has not been posted before. Provide the source of the articles posted from other website.
Articles from Telly Chakkar are copyrighted and not meant to be share on IF. Posting articles from Indian Television and Telly Chakkar are not allowed on IF. Do not post articles from Telly Buzz directly on forum. Post only link to the article from Telly Buzz.
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. '')! Messages containing only emotions will be deleted.
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.
Please 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.
So I guess from this the question arises what is the difference between constructive criticism and bashing, constructive criticism is where a member voices their opinion without the use of foul, derogatory or insulting language and are able to state without subjugation 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 criticism however 'I think Person A could have portrayed themselves better if they had put more emotion into their feelings for example when they stated...' this is constructive criticism and will be allowed on the forum.
Name Calling Posts : While criticizing, 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 characters by Nicks or join names together, whilst this is allowed, please make sure just nicks are not insulting or deemed to be derogatory 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. Members are aksed to refrain from calling members name as well, for exmaple do not call others bashers, haters etc.
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 raised.
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 investigative to cause arguments 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 isn't. 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 parties to out their case forward, but whilst doing that another character is not put down to make your point.
Counter-Posting: 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 Qubool Hai COC just REPORT and let the moderators of the section handle the situation.
In addition to the above mentioned section guidelines, at all times India-Forums.com- Participation Guidelines & Rules will be in effect.
We hope to have everyone's understanding.
