to Welcome Baazi Mehmaan Nawaazi Ki forum . 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!
Currently WBMNK forum is only being moderated by the following:- Channel Moderator: Autumn. Viewbie(s): -Ridzzi- and tannipartner. Bring all moderation issues to the 3 of them.
2. Comparison Topics/Instigating Posts/Plotting
By now, we all know instigating topics and comparison on this forum are not allowed. Some members purposely instigate others and believe they can get by with it and some plan attacks in other places and decide to disrupt the functioning of the forum. Well, it will not happen anymore.
Giving names to other fans 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. It seems like half of the posts are targeted at the viewers rather than the show. Do not pass snide remarks at viewers of the show just because their interest lies in something different from yours.
4) No Moral Policing
Please refrain from engaging in any moral policing around the WBMNK 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 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 WBMNK forum rules and IF COC. Hence moral policing will NOT be tolerated.
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!
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
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 have their own point of view let's respect it. You have right to raise your opinion but one should see lines ain'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 mods feel that your post is no longer critiquing, but is full of sarcasm/attacks... that will be held against you.
8) 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.
9) 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.
*Any 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.
11) 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. 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.
All multiple topics on same subject, like always will either be merged or closed as the case may be.
12) Appreciation threads
We have allowed appreciation threads to discuss about the respective actors. 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 actors(atcress. NO AT can be started without the moderator's permission and do not turn the forum into just ATs, as WBMNK 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.
13) 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!
14) Discussions on Actor's Personal Life
You have right to comment on actors, their participation & their style while being not crossing the line but to comment on actors personal life & people who are part of their personal sphere won't be appreciated here at IF. What any celebrity do in their personal life is their Personal Matter. Its their life & they have complete freedom to live it the way they wants to. We are no one to interfere in it.
Contestants past can not be criticized or discussed here as it has no
relevance for the show, only the contents from the show and their action
on screen can be discussed here!
15) Posting Email Address or personal pictures of Stars
Accounts or email address of stars is not allowed to be posted or revealed unless they them self 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.
16. Picture topics
We have a picture gallery to post pictures. Please do not make anymore topics on episode pictures or normal pics from the show. If you have pictures for a particular special occasion that you want to post on the forum then you may post. We will allow picture topics on special occasion. Otherwise please post all the pictures in Picture Gallery.
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.
18. Using Signatures
As per the rule a member is allowed to use three signature of which one can be animates small. Do not use wallpaper size signature in your signature. To know more in details you can read ATTN: Avatar & Signature Shop Rules.
Signatures bashing actors/members will not be tolerated. If the signatures are not removed at the moderator's request then the signatures will be removed by Moderators themselves and will count as one strike.
19. External links
Any site or blog demeaning the celebrity on OR off the show and link given to the same in the signature or on the forum is not allowed to maintain forum peace. It will be immediately removed and repeated offence will result in WL increased or ban.
Read the link below for further details:
20. Use Like Button
Every often we see members posting thanks or tfs or one liner instead of using the Like button. The Like feature has come in place of Thank You feature so that spamming could be alleviated. Saying thanks, tfs, etc constitutes to spamming. If you have nothing more to say apart from thanks then you can thank using Like button.
21. Help topics
If you have any queries regarding the show then please post it in Help Desk. We will definitely try our best to help out there
We 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.
