Holaa Everyone ...Welcome to Big Boss 7 Forum
Here are a few rules to keep in mind before posting. Please go over each and everyone of them.

Rules of the Forum :
To all members participating on BB7 forum, we want all of you to co-exist peacefully and have fun.
Introducing Yourself:All newbies and other general Members of this forum ,introduce yourselves in this one common thread Bigg Boss Saath 7 Introduction Thread instead of opening separate intro topics..
Use the help desk: Any queries or doubts regarding the show or the forum or contestents or any other issues , use this Bigg Boss Saath 7- Help Desk thread .Every member of the forum can co-operate their bits in this thread and help the members having doubts
Celebrity Criticism Allowed but NO Deregatory/Demeaning/Obscene Remarks: At BB forum there will be criticism on the actions of a celebrity/host in the show or any content he or she himself/herself speaks about his/her personal life on the show and the highly sensitive fans have to adapt to the real self of the celebrity. While we allow criticism but that doesn't mean derogatory, demeaning or obscene remarks or pics are being allowed, they are a strict NO.
NO Celebrity Past Life/History Discussion : Past life of the celebrity / host will not be talked about when it has no relation to the show...Only if any particular episode has such discussion , it will be allowed only for that Particular Day's Episode..
No Discussion of Past Season or other Random Celebrities : No discussion will be allowed on celebrities who are not part of Bigg Boss this season ...
However 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.
NO Adult Content Allowed: The show may have adult content but that does NOT give members the liberty to create their own perception of it or use it as an excuse to post licentious things. Please do not be so explicit in regards to adult content. Discussing the point is fine but within the decorum of a public forum.
NO Celebrity Comparison : Celebrity on the show cannot be compared to any animal or any other thing which may be considered offensive.
No Fanbase Groupism Or Instigating/Bullying any Member or Fan base :No single fan group will try to dominate or create a ruckus on the forum. Tolerate and learn to respect others choices.Please do NOT rile or instigate any fan base group or member. Name calling or codes names are NOT allowed to any member or fan group. If found strict action will be taken.
No Repitative/Multiple/One liner Topics : All multiple topics on same subject, like always will either be merged in Episode Discussion Thread or closed as the case may be.
Regarding Fun Posts/Remarks: Now coming to fun names or remarks on contestants that are allowed provided it isn't derogatory or demeaning anyone, discretion to the DT. Other than that it also tests the tolerance levels of members here.
Use the Report Button or PM the DT : If members have an issue with a post then report it and if its some urgent issue then pm any of the DT. Arguing in the thread won't help as the differing sides will keep seeing wrong on the other side. Quoting a post and telling the member it is reported, not allowed as it only fuels the argument. No moral policing by members as DT is here to take care of the forum.
Report Button/Response Time: 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. Instead of mass PMing it would be appreciated if one person PM's the concern DT with regards to the issue. We hope all members would adhere to the above guidelines and make sure to keep the atmosphere of the section friendly.
