Mahabharat forum- Rules & Regulations
Hello Friends, welcome to Mahabharat forum. It's one of the greatest saga of our Mythology, History. Lets get familliar with the way all should participate & enjoy being here. Never forget, always follow these Rules made for all.
1) India-forums Participation Guidelines
3) While participating:
Before starting a thread check in atleast 3 pages, if simillar thread is already made, comment in that thread. Simillar posts will be closed or merged with the one posted first.
Criticism is encouraged-however the Critisism should be strictly constructive and should not lead to things like name calling, bashing, taunting etc of the other members, Actors, Characters, Creatives and the Makers of the show. Instigating other members to fight is not allowed.
Everyone has their own pov. Let's understand the difference between criticism & bashing. Criticism involves seeing things constructively with a perspective, trying to analyse things logically. Bashing is being aggressive, attacking, insulting, making derogatory remarks intentionally.
* While making any topic or discussing one must provide source, referance or link to support your thoughts.
The main version is only one that is by Ved Vyas. Others are interpretations of various writers, who apply their pov which may be different from the original version. Such interpretation at times twists the meaning, compared to the one of the main Version. Follow the main version & what is shown in the show as a base of your discussions.
Moral Policing- Do not preach to other members as on what they should do & don't. Let the moderators decide what is allowed/ not allowed or what is right/ wrong.
Comparing 2 actors should be avoided, as every actor is different from the other. Any member doing so will be warned.
Refrain from chatting/spamming on the forum. Don't start your personal or general chats in threads opened for various subjects/ discussion topics/ AT. Please try to stick to the topic when posting replies. Use only forum's Chat Corner for chatting. Do not type message or post reply full of smileys only.
Typing in all caps is not allowed.
FF should be posted in Fan Fiction section, not in this forum. OS with Mytho stories covered in this show is allowed.
4) Appreciation Threads:
Taking DT's permission for opening an AT is a must.
ATs are made to appreciate talent & hard work of the concerned actor. Refrain from spamming, personal chatting, comparing, bashing other actor or fans of other actors there. This show will have many actors playing important characters. Some may stay till end, some may leave when their part is over. AT of an actor whose role is over, will be moved to Celebrity Fan Club section, 2 weeks after his/ her exit from the show.
5) Posting articles:
Before posting any article please check if that the article is posted before. IF has launched its own news hub Telly Buzz. We are now in direct competition with IndianTelevision & Telly Chakkar. Do not post articles from these two websites. Do not post articles from Telly Buzz directly on forum. Always provide link/source of the articles.
6) Use Report button:
If you find any offensive thread, comment made by any member, Report that post, giving the reason. Do not try to solve it yourself, it may aggrevate the situation. Leave it to the DT to take necessary action.
