Time flies eh? Another year is coming to an end . While welcoming 2013, India forums will be bringing new exciting sections and implement some necessary changes in regards to forum functioning.
1. Off air shows forums across all Channels will be locked down in a span of three months. Reality shows will be subject to closure in 2 weeks and the daily soaps will not remain open beyond 3 months. Initially we thought of closing down the section in a month's time but we realize it would be too soon and decided to make it three months instead. The reason we have observed is once the show ends, the activity of the forum is reduced to VMs/FF/OS/AT and general Chitchatting. All these can be carried out in Videomix Gallery , Fan Fiction, Celebrity Fan club & Chat Club sections. Any threads members may want to be moved , contact your respective section DT. We would like to inform everyone that shows which went off air before 2012 will be subject for closure in 1 month time and rest will be after 3 months.
2. Many members may feel let down by this news, but we are providing an alternative for those members who would still like to partake in episode discussions about their favorite old/Off air shows. A new "Nostalgia" Section will be opened where any episode discussion threads in the soon to be closed forums may be moved upon request. Further details will be provided by the Dev Team shortly.
3. When an actor leaves the show or his/her characters ends , his/her name will be removed from "popular" cast list to accommodate the new actor and/or other cast. Their names will remain with the overall cast and only the current cast will be featured under the popular list.
And if the Moderators of the forum is willing and interested in managing the off-air shows forum and the forum has activities we can extend this period and review it every 3 months. As we cant leave a forum unmanaged as it attracts spammers.
Let me know if that works?
Well looking at the response from the member I am sure the Dev Team will re-consider and come up with a solution to keep everyone happy. So for the moment it seems the idea is "ON HOLD" till we reach some consensus.
