I agree with pretty much every points of BNK. After all what is happening. The higher-ups treat the people here as a burden, if not why we feel so. If this forum is run for members to gather here for any activities, then please make them feel that way. It is like we will have to pay taxes to move here.

Thanks Meli & Vijay for these new GA guidelines. With the ever increasing daily important topics to be prioritized and made accessible , new rules have to be amended as per the changing  IF environment. Glad to see significant changes being implemented.

3 days is a fair time for the actor birthday threads. Heartfelt wishes is posted in this time frame and it does become spam zone out of competition with  rival randoms after the first couple days.  Members must realize , getting a thread GA-ed is a privilege and not a right to be demanded. 

The rules put up are quite generous and acceptable . Since new shows keep coming across different channels on weekly basis, it seems fair only  On air shows get priority , as we cannot accommodate wishes of off air and on air shows at the same time. This is in addition to other important real life events, anniversaries & rules & announcements. Sleepy

Thanks for the guidelines, but really appreciate if you could re-consider rules for off-air shows for their anniversary thread.

Off air show anniversary will be discussed with admin and his decision will be final .

The admin has made it very clear its coincidence the rules were posted today and has nothing to do with Barun's birthday yet many want to continue with the conspiracy theories. Its effective for every upcoming celebrities birthday and were implemented last week itself so Barun's birthday are not the one to be affected by the new rules, Gautham and Mohit's threads were first one to be affected.

Many of you have misconception about global announcements; those GA spots are to be used for important messages to convey the forum members from the admins sides. But lately, celebrations were allowed so it's a privilege and not a right to make those threads as a GA. The actors are important for the respective show forum he is part of and not the entire IF. It is quality rather than quantity that matters. You celebrate someone's birthday to appreciate his/her work, talent and why he/she means so special for you and not to show your fan power. If those stars are supposed to read what the fans feels, he or she will appreciate those hearty wishes and congratulations from the fans and not the amount of the page number!

BNK - if you want to spam, use the chat club forum as GA spots are not be used as spam hub! Your hard work is being appreciated by getting the thread GA for 3 days. Everyone works hard to maintain the forum, Toni. From the regular member who writes down the daily written updates to those who discuss, makes creations, fan clubs, writes fan fiction etc. So kindly do not underestimate anyone's hard work and effort by making the birthday threads sounds like the only way to express ones appreciation toward the actors/actress!

If you want appreciation for the birthday threads, we can for sure arrange forum wide contest to see who had the best birthday thread at the end of the year.

well sir and mam ...

all i know a birthday thread is something that promotes the forum and the show ..since IF is a very popular and well known place people comes to join on those special days ...

and as far as i know we who ever make a thread works almost 24 /7 for about a month just to make a beautiful thread for their fav my case i worked about 2 months on Gautam's thread...a thread like that shows class and uniqueness of the forum but it was out from the GA after 48 hours .. i think thats not fair and somehow it feels our hard work means nothing to u ..

and about music ..thats a part of the thread how can u restrict that !!

then spamming ...well this forum runs for us and by us and we worked hard so we should do what ever we want .. we r not bashing or doing something against the rule then what is the problem !!

about off air show ... well i think those special days r more important for those fandoms then the on going shows ..cox they r still emotionally attached to that show and all. u cant take that one yeah two days away from them ..i know some of them who r here just bcz they cant let go!!

all the rules posted ..with all due respect ... i truly think makes no sense and it will do harm then any good please let us enjoy here not make some school jaha utte bathte rules hote hai </font>

agree with u. It is so frustrating to see these rules just 2 day befor my 2 fav stars bdayCry
