This is a sincere REQUEST to all the members of the The Serial Forum
Please do READ and FOLLOW
It has been seen that a lot of similar topics are being opened. Its a request to all the members to please go thru the topics already posted and if there is a similar topic already open to please join in the discussions there instead of opening a new topic on the same or similar issue.
It does not mean that the topic has to be exactly what you were going to write, but if its similar then you can always add your points in there as well.
This is a sincere request to all members. Please DO NOT open multiple topics on the same or similar content. This is in no way meant to discourage members from posting topics, but its a request with the view to be fair to all posters and all topics. Cause if all similar topics come to page 1 then other topics which are equally interesting and important and of varied nature go to page 2 and receive less views and replies and sometimes totally ignored.
Similar topics do not mean it has to be exactly what you are going to write, similar means based on the same content. If you have another point to make on the subject you can easily do it in that same post. At this point i feel it is better that the members decide themselves what is similar and what is not as i am sure it will not be liked if the Dev. Team starts to decide that or takes some other strict action and neither will Dev. Team like doing or taking such measures, but if this continues we will have no other option but to take some action to maintain the proper working of the forum.
ACTOR CHARACTER TOPICS
The cast is chosen by the The Serial Creative Team, and i think they have done a marvelous job. Each and every actor fits the character they are in, be it senior or junior, old or young, some maybe exceptionally good others good, but i feel no one is bad. Hats off to the creatives who give each actor ample screen space and each actor / character has a role to play in any given plot.
A mature and unbiased discussion is fine, but taking your likes and dislikes too far creates tension and an unhealthy atmosphere in the forum. Trying to put down the acting skills of someone all the time is not a good thing. Also on the other hand praising someone over the limit is also not necessary and may tempt others to pinpoint their weaknesses thus leading to fights.
So do try and keep all discussions friendly and no bashing will be allowed. If you have a negative point of view try and put it nicely, i am sure the point will be understood by all. If at any point the Dev. Team feels the discussion is going out of hand or has become repetitive and stagnant they will close the topic, whether members like it or not.
TOPICS POSTED IN THE FORUM
This is The Serial Forum and not a Fan Club of any particular actor, so if anyone is interested in just praising a single actor or want only a few selected members to reply to a topic just to praise the actor then please visit the Celebrity Fan Clubs and if there is a fan club for the actor join that or u can make 1 urself and open it just for a few selected members and praise them there as much as you want. Any topics opened in the The Serialforum are and will available to all members for discussion, and for all points of view.
Only Appreciation Threads are restricted to members who appreciate the couple. All other topics are open and available to all members with all points of view.
Please try to keep the discussions friendly and limit them to the serial The Serial, DO NOT carry ur likes nor ur dislikes too far as that disrupts the normal friendly atmosphere of forum. Everyone has a right to maintain their views, likes and dislikes and express their opinions, but lets not just assert our rights and forget about the feelings of other members of the forum, as this just leads to fights and unnecessary tension. Lets try and keep the forum friendly and a tension free place for everyone to visit.
As mentioned above comparative polls will strictly not be allowed in the forum, any such polls opened will be trashed.
I think the The Serial cast / producers / directors work as a team and as a family and that is why they are successful in giving us such a good serial to watch. I feel each and every actor in the serial is important and has a role to play and is doing it very well and its all a team effort.
It is understandable that at times the story does not go according to our wishes or the actors do not perform as per our expectations. Every member has a right to express their views, express them and move forward, instead of holding yourself to that one point, try to enjoy the serial as a whole.
I just hope that all the members here at IF - The Serial forum can also stay and work together as a team and give IF a good, healthy and happy forum to visit. Enjoy the forum and Enjoy the show.
