Hello Fellow NB lovers,
Welcome to The Nach Baliye Season 5 Section. We sincerely hope you have a great time here. We take this opportunity share the rules and regulations developed specifically for this section 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!
Not everyone on Dev Team is a moderator. Coolbies and Videobies do not fall under the category of Moderation as they only provide updates. The Moderation chain is as follows: Viewbie > Moderator > Channel Moderator. Your first contact would be the section's Viewbie or Moderator as they will take care of day to day activities on the forum. If you have complaints regarding moderation those can be sent directly to CMs, but any other issues must be brought to the attention of Viewbies and Moderators first. In the case of a member feeling that a warning being given is not justified or there is an error then please pm the DT member, but do not argue on the respective post and cause disruption. If you are not satisfied with the answer then please direct the concerns to CMs. Our Active DT is as follows:
Channel Moderator: *Resham*,
2. Comparison Topics/Instigating Posts/Plotting
By now, we all know instigating topics and comparison on the forum are not allowed. Some members purposely instigate others and believe they can get away with it and some plan attacks in other places and decide to disrupt the functioning of the forum. This is all unacceptable and will not be tolerated!
Giving names to other fans/fan groups will not be tolerated. From now on name calling, bashing other fans, or stereotyping will not be allowed. In addition, comment on the show and not the viewers. Do not pass snide remarks at viewers of the show just because their interest lies in something different from yours. Also, no nicknames for the celebrities will be tolerated (unless DT permission is granted)! You either use their real first or last name or their initials.
4. No Moral Policing
Please refrain from engaging in any moral policing around the NB forum. If you find anyone breaching rules, please Report the topic and or contact the section DT. The section DTs will deal with the issue at the earliest opportunity 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 with and or contradict someone else's point of view. Everyone is welcome to express their opinions within the NB rules and IF COC. Hence, moral policing will NOT be tolerated.
5. Report Button/Response Time
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! Please keep in mind that DT cannot be here 24/7 as they too have their personal life. 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.
A lot of members try to use code words and asterisk and try to get away with such language. Well, It won't happen from now on. This decision has been made by the Global moderators themselves.
Ex: W*F (What the Fish is a lame excuse so do not try)
"Who watches this Shit?"
7. Bashing/Personal Attacks/Sarcasm
Bashing and making personal attacks against any actor/actress/fangroups/members is not allowed. Make sure members know the difference between bashing and criticism. A critic is one who discusses things in perspective, never loses objectivity and states things in a logical and constructive way. But a basher is one, who states the points a bit too heavily such that it no longer looks like criticism but looks like a total attack. Everyone has their own point of view, let's respect it. You have the right to raise your opinion but one should see lines aren't crossed. Avoid making posts that are abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic enough to affect the sentiment of another member. This is against IF COC and won't be tolerated.
Keep a control on your sarcasm. If the DT feels that your post is no longer critiquing, but is full of sarcasm/attacks... that will be held against you.
8. Multiple IDs (MIDs)
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 members. If ever convicted with having MIDs, all except the most active ID will be inactivated, followed by a raise in WL to the active ID.
9. Quoting posts/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: @luvya4ever: your point).
Also, please refrain from chatting in the discussion threads, which are meant exclusively for the topics in discussion.
10. Repeated Topics
Please 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.
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. If any AT is seen to breach the rules, there will be consequences including and up to permanent AT closure. Also, if an AT admin fails to respond to the requests of members and/or make the next AT in a timely manner, the DT reserves the right to remove their AT admin rights.
12. Writing in capitals
Please refrain from using all CAPITAL letters as it is considered to be the equivalent of shouting on the internet!
13. Discussing an Actor's Personal Life
You have the right to comment on actors, their dance & their style. But you CANNOT comment on an actor's personal life and people who are part of their personal sphere. What any celebrity does in their personal life is private and not up for discussion on IF.
14. Posting Email Address or Personal Pictures of Celebs
Accounts or email address of stars is not allowed to be posted or revealed unless they themself give it. Also, posting your email address on open forum is not allowed. Moreover, no personal pictures of stars from Facebook or Orkut are allowed to be posted.
15. Using Signatures
As per IF rules, a member is allowed to use three signatures, of which one can be animated. Do not use wallpaper size signatures in your signature. To know the exact details you can read ATTN: Signature/Avatar Size - Guidelines of Avatar & Signature Section. Signatures bashing actors/members will not be tolerated. If an inappropriate signature is not removed at the moderator's request, then the signatures will be removed by Moderators themselves and will count as one strike.
16. Use the Like Button
The "Like" button doubles as a simple "Thank you" to limit spamming. Saying thanks, tfs, etc. constitutes to spamming. If you have nothing more to say apart from thanks then you can thank using the Like button.
17. Help topics:
If you have any queries regarding the show then please post it in the Help Desk. We will definitely try our best to help out there.
18. Rules regarding FB status/Tweets:
NB5 is a new season and we have a dedicated forum to discuss the current on air show. Keeping this in mind DT would like to make it clear .
a) Tweets by the past contestants or celebrities related only to the current season NB5 will be allowed .
b) Any other random tweets by the past contestants which has no relevance to the NB5 will be closed/trashed.
c) Any personal tweets by non-celebrity members / forum members even if it pertains to NB5 are absolutely not acceptable in this forum .
We respect IF members privacy and would prefer members social interaction outside the India-Forums ( FB/Twitter/LinkedIn,G+,Myspace,Pinterest etc) is not brought into this forum. Any such posts violating a member's privacy will be trashed immediately and a warning level will be increased.
d) An official Twitter thread may be opened , where members can post new tweets pertaining to the current season and its contestants.
19. Previous Seasons Contestants:
Past contestant(s) can be mentioned as a side note or a reference to prove a point in a discussion about current season. Making the whole topic based on past contestants as center point of discussion won't be allowed.Whether the discussion is allowed to continue or not will be left to DT's discretion.
Members are requested not to post spoilers randomly. To reduce the clutter of repetitive threads and make it easier for members , the DT will open and maintain the spoiler thread. All nonessential posts or chatting will be deleted.
Moderation issues will be entertained only
by PM to DT.
Reminding again: remember NB is a different show than the regular soaps/serials and hence don't judge the celebrities keeping in mind the characters they played on some other show.
Seeking everyone's cooperation. For further queries, please feel free to contact any DT members listed above.
