Before I start, this post is NOT targeted at any individual member here.
There have been some issues that have been brought up lately and this
post has been made addressing the same.
Multiple ID's (MID):
If you think a member is using a MID then contact the section Dev Team.
There is no need to accuse someone based on assumption. What we think
might not always be true and accusing someone based on an assumption is
wrong. If you have any proof and evidence with regards to the same you
can get in touch with the Dev Team. They will look into the matter and
do the needful. Any post accusing member of being MID member will get a direct WL raise.
We kindly request members to refrain from
creating MID's purposely to cause chaos and fights between the members.
If anyone is seen to engage in such activities, the original ID will get
a warning level raise and MID's will be banned without further
Personal Attack/Abusive Posts: Making any personal attacks or derogatory names calling against members/contestants is NOT acceptable.
Please avoid making posts that are abusive, derogatory, sarcastic and
insulting enough to affect the sentiment of another member. Members have
difference of opinion no doubt but you can't expect all the fingers of
one hand to be the same do you? India Forums is a platform to allow
everyone to express their opinions freely within the COC and respectable
limitations. Please know the difference between bashing and criticism.
Things can be said in a more civilized manner rather than being brutal.
Having said that, dislike, criticism, disagreement or contradiction is
not considered bashing and everyone is welcome to express their opinions
within the Bollywood forum rules and IF COC.
please refrain from passing comments against a particular fangroup;
comments such as "Oh fans of XYZ contestant/actor are always bashing
ABC, and they expect us to sit and listen" are NOT allowed. Such
comments do nothing except create animosity between the members and
disrupt the atmosphere of the forum. If you do feel that certain members
are acting in an unruly manner, please feel free to present your POV
via PMs to the DT, and let the DT intervene and take the needed action.
Moral Policing: We
would prefer members to stop preaching on the forum. Let the moderators
decide what is needed on this forum and what is not or what one member
is allowed to do or not. There is no need for to tell members what to do
because the forum has an active DT who WILL take action if it is deemed
necessary. You cannot stop someone from posting in any topic. Do not
become a moral police on the forum.Counter Posting: Refrain from making counter posts on the forum. If you see a post
which you feel you do not agree with or believe to be insulting/instigatory or
abusive, then DO NOT create another topic in retaliation to counter
argue the post maker. This only leads to further unrests and more arguments
breaking out in the forum. If you come across any posts which you believe
are not in accordance with the Bigg Boss Forum Rules or IF COC, just REPORT
and let the moderators of the section handle the situation.
Sharing Personal Information: This
has been brought up time and time again. Do not share your personal
information with others on the net. If you are sharing any information
with an unknown person you are doing that at your own risk. The
conversation that takes place in private messages, face book, messenger
between two people is between them and not to be shared in the open
Report Button/Response Time:
Abusive topics are not allowed nor do we appreciate members taking law
in their hands and jump in the topics with their weapons using the same
tone as the poster. That will make no difference between you and the
poster. If anyone sees any comment/thread which is offending posted by
someone, you will NOT take law into your own hands to teach a lesson.
That aggravates matters more and you also become liable for action for
reacting thus. Instead you will simply make use of the "REPORT" button
and report the thread by stating the reason clearly.
in mind moderators are also members. We would also like time to make
our own posts. We also have our own lives and cannot be here 24/7.
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.
If a member sends one PM then wait for 24 hrs
then for the Moderators to come online and reply to your queries/concerns. Don't go around spamming
the inbox of with mass PMs. Instead of mass PMing it would appreciated if one person PM's the
concern DT with regards to the issue. Having said that,
members can PM only on his/her behalf to DT and not on another member's behalf. Third party PM to DT are NOT Allowed.
Issues pertaining the Development Team: The
DT is not allowed to disclose how do we deal with issues/problematic
posts/offending members etc due to confidentiality issues, so please do
not make judgements based on your own perception of what is happening,
as there may be another side to the coin as well. When a topic is
closed, understand that we don't just consider the opening post by the
TM, but we go through the ENTIRE post, read through the replies before
taking a decision of how to deal with an issue.
If you have any
issue with the way an issue has been handled, try and resolve it via
PMs instead of commenting on the thread and/or opening new threads. If
you still feel unsatisfied with the explanation offered to you, you are
free to escalate the issue by taking it up to the CMs/GMs. Also, once a
DT member has posted a note in a thread regarding rule breaking, please
refrain from repeating the same offense and/or dragging the issue into
Reporting and Addressing Issues: Not everyone on the Development Team has moderating powers. Coolbies and Videobies do NOT fall
under the category of moderation as they only provide timely updates to
the forum. The moderation chain is as follows: Viewbies > Moderators
> Channel Moderators > Global Moderators.
point of contact would be the section Viewbie or Moderator as they take
care of the day to day happenings in the forum. If you have any issues
regarding moderation, you can escalate them to the Channel
Moderators/Global Moderators, but any other issues need to be brought to
the Section Development Team [Viewbies and Moderators] first. If you
feel that the response by the Section DT is unsatisfactory, please
address the issue through PMs to the respective DT member or to the
CM/GM, but please don't argue on the post/open new posts and disrupt the
atmosphere of the forum.
The Bigg Boss Development Team is as follows:
Viewbies: souro ,
realitybites , Ishan.
Global Moderators: gk_09 , Aahaana , *Shruti*
We hope all members would adhere to the above guidelines along with Bigg Boss Saath 7 Guidelines and Rules and India-Forums.com- Participation Guidelines & Rules
and make sure to keep the atmosphere of the section friendly. If anyone
is found not following the rules and creating unrest in the section
strict action will be taken against the member. With the increase of warning meters even ban can be an option taken by
the Dev Team. No reminders/warnings PM will be send out.
