Hello Veers Forum Members,

Before reading the rules specific to this section further, please go through the Code of Conduct  for IF, which is in effect at all times in addition to the following rules.
 

Moderation: Not everyone on Development Team is a moderator.  Coolbies and Videobies do not fall under the category of Moderation as they only provide written & video updates. The Moderation chain ladder is as follows: Viewbie >Moderator>Channel Moderator>Global Moderator.
 
a)  Your first point of contact would be the section's Viewbie/Moderator as they take care of day to day activities on the forum. If you have any complaints or are unhappy with daily moderation by VB or MOD then direct those to CM.
b)  In case if any members feels that a warning being given is not justified or there is an error then please pm the DT member first to sort the issue, but do not argue on the respective post and cause disruption. If you are not satisfied with the answer then please direct the concerns to CM.  
 
For any moderation issues please contact:
Channel Moderator :  *Resham* (Incharge of StarPlus Channel)
Viewbie: hinz ( Looks after  forum on day to day basis, promote discussions & activity ,moderate i.e close/delete/ sticky topics,resolve disputes , increase/decrease Warning Levels)
 

Introduce Yourself : As members join every day, rather than cluttering the forum with "Hi I'm New Here" threads, please introduce yourself in a single  intro thread Member Introduction
 
Help Desk :  Please post all questions/queries regarding the show, the forum, actors or characters etc. in the Help Desk  . Rather than posting new topics asking for something, all questions can be directed there and a fellow member will reply to your query.
 
Updates: Updaters are volunteers who take time out of their busy life to provide one. In case the written update is not posted on any particular day, please be patient for the back-up updater to fill in.Do not post topics demanding updates. Also, do appreciate the updater's efforts by 'liking' them and post a comment to encourage them if possible.
 
If you want to do written update for the show any particular day then please PM the respective updater a day in advance & take their permission so that the updater's efforts don't go in vain. Anyone posting the updates without DT permission, post will be trashed.
 
Organizing Contest/Activities: If you want to organize any Contest/Activities in the section please consult with the Dev Team & take their permission. Don't post any contest or conduct any activities without taking DT's permission.
 
New Topics : Members are requested that before posting a new topic, please check at least 2-3 pages back to see if a similar topic has been posted. This reduces the number of repetitive posts.  
 
Repetitive  topics: Many times it has come to the attention of the DT that members create topics, that have already been discussed. For example, if you see that someone has already opened a post on SBS/ SBB segment, there is absolutely no need to create a separate topic for them as anything related to the segment can be discussed in one thread only which will also keep the forum clean. In such cases, repeated threads may be closed, and you will be directed to existing discussion thread.
 
Chatting/Spamming/One Liners : Chatting , spamming and one liner topics are not allowed. Topics posted on the forum are for the purpose of discussing so stick to the topic at hand. Threads that no longer serve that purpose will be closed. Posting just to say "Thanks", "tfs" , "agree" , using emoticons only etc. is also a form of spamming and instead, use  the "like" button to express your gratitude if you have nothing to say . If you wish to chat or converse with someone, then use  Veera - Chit Chat Club 1 , the PM feature or go to the Chat Club Forum .
 
Advertising: Posting videos from other competing sites as well as anything that contains a logo/link are not allowed and will be trashed.
 
Caps: Posting in CAPS is considered shouting and is therefore not allowed.
 
No Comments: Threads that say "No Comments" on them such as the Article Archive/Picture Gallery/etc. mean only those items are allowed. Any comments found will be trashed.
 
Quoting Posts: Don't quote long posts especially when it messes up the coding which makes it look bad. If you want to reply to someone use the @ format like @membername, @B: & so on.
 
Creations/Signatures : All creations (siggies/avis) are to be posted in Creations Gallery 1 . Signature size are to be 550x500 max. Members are allowed to use three  550x500 siggies as well as one small siggy. To know more in details you can read ATTN: Signature/Avatar Size - Guidelines of Avatar & Signature Section.
 
Please don't carry any signatures which are provoking or instigating any fan group or indirectly making fun of any member , actor or character .If DT finds any member carrying such siggy ,then the profile of the member will be edited to remove the offensive siggy and the member will be sent an official warning PM for it . All hate speech signatures will receive immediate warning level raise.
 
Multiple IDs : Members are permitted to have one ID only. Those found using another ID will have it banned immediately as well as receive a warning and may also receive a raise in their warning level.
If members are found guilty of making MIDs to bash other members, creative, actors, characters or advertise other websites; be assured of facing severe DT action such as straight ban in worst cases.
 
Articles: All articles should be posted here Articles Archives Also, when posting articles, refrain from posting articles from sites such as TellyChakkar as they are in direct competition with I-F. When posting articles from TellyBuzz, post the link only, rather than copying+pasting  the whole article.
 
 
Pictures: All pictures  of the cast must be posted in the Picture Gallery 1 . Unless they are caps related to the show (epi caps, SBS/SBB/interview caps) or from an event during the course of the show (i.e. they perform in an awards show etc), they are to be posted in the picture gallery only. What is NOT allowed to be posted in the forum is, pictures from the cast's previous shows or their personal pictures which would violate their privacy.
 
Appreciation Threads: ATs of the cast/characters are allowed, but keep in mind no bashing or discussion about other actors is allowed in them.  If any AT is seen to breach the rules, there will be consequences including permanent AT closure. Also take the DT permission before opening the ATs.
 
Language: Please refrain from using swear words like 'W*F, WTH, What the Fish, BS, F words etc.  . IF is a public forum where we have members of all ages come to read and discuss their favorite shows .Please do maintain decorum of the forum. We want to invite members here not drive them away with usage of inappropriate language.

Criticism towards a character and the plot are allowed and can be discussed .
 
India-Forums allow freedom of expression and so everyone has the right to speak out and give their POV, but keep in mind, you do not cross lines and get personal in heat of argument. If you disagree with a Topic Maker's opinion , simply state your own POV saying "I disagree with you for so and so reason" instead of saying "Just stop your nonsense" , "change channels" etc which comes under personal attack. If you cannot be civil in a discussion, please ignore that thread, and find another thread to discuss your views.
 
Making indirect attacks on a Member's family or upbringing or questioning their qualification in a particular field during a heated debate just because their views are different than yours will not be tolerated.
 
Bashing vs. Constructive Criticism

Bashing: an act of verbal abuse or the use of foul language that can be provocative or offensive!

Constructive Criticism: any feedback that is purely intended to improve someone else's work in future endeavors! India-forums.com Code of Conduct strictly forbids members from bashing celebrities, the characters they portray on screen and fellow members! This includes the use of foul language, as well as any personal remarks, i.e. how the actor looks like, as they have no control over it! We welcome members to share their constructive criticism on the absurdity of the series' story line and character, as well as to discuss the actor's talents, however, please refrain from engaging in any kind of bashing, which may have severe consequences.

No Moral Policing: Please refrain from engaging in any moral policing in the forum. India Forums platform allows everyone to express their opinions freely within the COC and respectable limitations. Members have the freedom to express their own perspective, which may contradict someone else's POV. 

Privacy : Posting Email addresses or Private information about the cast of the show or members of this forum is not allowed.
 
Actor's Private lifeAny discussion about an actor's life, specifically their past or personal lives issues is strictly prohibited. Discussion of events/articles with valid source post the show launch will only be allowed. Remember we are here to discuss their show not engage in gossip about their private lives, which we have no right to interfere in. We will strive to keep reel and real separate.
 
Fan Fictions/ OS : At all times the most recent rules of the Fan Fiction forum apply to your creative works. Please refer to the plagiarism, graphic mature content & blog rules  *Fan Fiction Forum Rules & Regulations* and get familiar before you start posting your creations.
Don't open multiple threads for writing your single FF or OS parts unless the thread completes 150 pages . When the forum traffic activity increases in near future, then Dev team will be shifting the FF/OS threads to the Fan Fiction section once it crosses 30 pages. Rest assured Writers will get advance notice, when we decide to start moving them.

Issues on External Sites: Please keep away all issues on Twitter, Facebook or blogs away from India Forums. This means that ALL topics which involve members, personal lives of actors, anything that may lead to chaos, they WILL be closed.  
Please see the site admin's note on this concern:External Content from Social Networking Sites
 
 
Last but not the least: If you find anyone violating any of the rules, please use the Report button and refrain from replying back directly as it can add fuel to the fire. 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.

 IMP: Revised Rules


Hi All

The negativity on the forum is evident and for a new member to join the forum has become extremely difficult. We wonder why the forum rank has been decreasing when all we see these days is a tit for tat kind of game between the two fangroups... Veera, Ranvi, Gunjan and Baldev are all equally important to the show along with the supporting characters and so are their fans...As a genuine follower of the show, if I was to join the forum discussions today I'd be confused and put off with the ongoing issues and would first have to pick a side and make sure I stay loyal to it as well?

We totally understand that certain tracks may be frustrating and we encourage topics with healthy and constructive criticism to get through them but taking to unnecessary bashing of characters and derogatory remarks will only make the situation ugly. We appreciate a sense of humor. Sarcasm and play on words are common and fine as long as it does not cross the line over to rudeness/insult.

Dislike and criticism is okay but insulting/mocking comments with clear intention to put down in a derogatory manner isnt. We seldom see topics that are neutral and contain healthy discussions without favouring any one character. Is it so hard to agree to disagree?

Honestly, its not pleasant to see the forum divided into two sensitive fandoms that can't bear even the slightest comments made against their favourites and is a major turn off for the ardent followers of the show who like to discuss it as a whole...There are members who've quit the forum due to the utter intolerance that has taken over the discussions.One can surely express one's view but that needs to be made in a civil and respectful manner.

Kindly co operate with us so we are not forced to close down your threads and help promote positive and healthy discussions that will help with the forum rank and let us enjoy the show and forum in harmony.


Regards

Hina & Resham

Veera Development Team


***************


Below are a set of revised rules that we'd like the members to follow at all times from now on.

1. AT violations reminder: We have observed irrelevant spamming , discussing other fan groups or members, even occasional bashing of other characters. Do not post emoticons or one picture per post several times in a row just to increase post count/bump the thread , with no discussion just to  finish 150 pages and open a new AT. AT is to be utilized to only appreciate the respective actor to whom the AT is dedicated to. Criticizing other characters can be done in discussion topics in the main forum. 

For clarification, chit chat about irrelevant stuff in an AT should not be more than 5-6 pages in a thread. You have a Chat thread/forum to spam non AT stuff.AT admins are expected to report and keep chk on  AT members violations, so the other genuine members are not penalized if we are forced to lock down in spite of warnings(PM/DT Note).
Hence forth, if we come across such reports , we will issue a 48 hour shut down . This warning applies to all the ATs in the forum.

We have also noticed a lot of individual topics appreciating actors...While we allow appreciation posts on special occasions, general appreciation can go in the respective ATs rather than separate topics.

2. Issues with Moderation : If the DT has posted a note in any thread, members are not to question the DT decision or assume they are biased or make rude comments that a particular DT is agent of other fan group in the forum.DT values a members freedom of speech. We DO NOT like posting warnings or locking topics unless there has been rules violation. It is nothing personal towards any member or fan group. All fan groups are equal to us. None is superior to the rest.  If you have an issue with a decision, members are requested to PM and sort out the issue. If still unsatisfied with the answer then approach higher DT( CM/GM) to seek counsel.

3. Personal Attacks/Name calling/Bashing/Sarcasm : Of late there have been many issues with regards to character bashing.To defend one's favorite does not mean to put the other down. If you do it, there is no point expecting the other fan group to be courteous to your favorite. This also extends to calling other members / fan groups:  bashers, haters , fanbots etc. All such name calling, targeting any specific fandom will result in WL raise with NO notice.

Excerpt from previous rules as a reminder:

Bashing or any types of name calling towards a member/actor/character are not allowed. It is offensive as well as disrespectful and can hurt the sentiments of the person/fan groups it is directed at. Anyone found doing so will receive a warning.
 
Criticism towards a character and the plot are allowed and can be discussed .
 
India-Forums allow freedom of expression and so everyone has the right to speak out and give their POV, but keep in mind, you do not cross lines and get personal in heat of argument. If you disagree with a Topic Maker's opinion , simply state your own POV saying "I disagree with you for so and so reason" instead of saying "Just stop your nonsense" , "change channels" etc which comes under personal attack. If you cannot be civil in a discussion, please ignore that thread, and find another thread to discuss your views.
 
Making indirect attacks on a member's family or upbringing or questioning their qualification in a particular field during a heated debate just because their views are different than yours will not be tolerated.
 
Bashing vs. Constructive Criticism

Bashing: an act of verbal abuse or the use of foul language that can be provocative or offensive!

Constructive Criticism: any feedback that is purely intended to improve someone else's work in future endeavors! India-forums.com Code of Conduct strictly forbids members from bashing celebrities, the characters they portray on screen and fellow members! This includes the use of foul language, as well as any personal remarks, i.e. how the actor looks like, as they have no control over it! We welcome members to share their constructive criticism on the absurdity of the series' story line and character, as well as to discuss the actor's talents, however, please refrain from engaging in any kind of bashing, which may have severe consequences.

4. Comparison Posts : There has always been a law in India-forums TV shows sections. No comparisons between actors/TV shows/Characters BECAUSE they lead to silly fan-fights. In Veera forum there has been rampant Vishal is better Vs Shivin is superior OR Veera vs Gunjan comparisons. Enough!!! The show does not run due to one actor. Its a team work. Fighting among fan-groups , proving which actor is supreme is all moot. It is our show , our forum , our members. Be tolerant of fellow members views . Co exist peacefully with your likes & dislikes.

5. Stickies: The following sticky threads are there for a reason and we'd like you to make use of them, any topics more suited for the following threads will be merged without notice.

Frustration Thread- Discuss Here

ALL Spoilers- Discussions and Predictions # 2

Live Updates/ Episode Discussion Thread#1


6. No Moral Policing: Please refrain from engaging in any moral policing in the forum. India Forums platform allows everyone to express their opinions freely within the COC and respectable limitations. Members have the freedom to express their own perspective, which may contradict someone else's POV.

7. VM and FF index: Members are advised to maintain an index for all their VMs and FFs. VMs are to be posted in one single thread instad of a new one each time. The title can be edited everytime to announce a new VM added to the collection.


We hope the above rules are followed from here onwards and if you have any queries or doubts regarding the above rules feel free to contact the Veera Dev Team via PM.
