In order to ensure a peaceful and enjoyable experience for all members of India-Forums, Vijay and the moderators have come up with a Forum Code of Conduct which all members should review and adhere to. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Vijay or any of the moderators.
India-Forums Code of Conduct
Our goal is to ensure that India-Forums's online forums and chat channels are welcoming environments where people can come together and discuss relevant subjects and topics in a friendly and non-aggressive environment. The purpose of this code of conduct is to ensure that users can participate in the forums and chats without being 'flamed', personally attacked, harassed or be exposed to inappropriate materials. India-Forums values freedom of expression on the site, but not at the expense of offending others. We want all members to have an enjoyable and fun experience. With this in mind we have established the Code of Conduct to help us achieve that goal. Please assist us by posting relevant messages that are consistent with the Code of Conduct. In short, we aim to maintain forums and chats with appropriate standards of civil posting behavior and where members respect the rights of others. This Code of Conduct is subject to the Planet India-Forums member rules.
India-Forums appoints moderators to help us ensure that forum post content and chat messages comply with the vision and goals of the India-Forums website forums and chat areas.
You agree, through your use of the forum and chat services, that you will abide by this Code of Conduct.
Please take some time to carefully read and understand the Code of Conduct, and the penalties for violations. Non-compliance will result in forfeiture of your privilege to access the forums and chat channels may result in a permanent ban. The following actions constitute a violation of the Code of Conduct. Please note references to posts in the following includes messages made in chat channels:
19. A very important NOTE:
Direct or Indirect attacks - of any form - including aspersions, sarcasm, snide comments etc - on any dev team will NOT BE TOLERATED. The attacking member will be formally warned with the Warning Meter.
A topic which openly challenges the authority or the decision of any dev team member AND/OR which was created with the underlying motive of creating unrest on the forum shall be immediately closed and deleted. The member creating the topic and any other member(s) involved in the altercation will be formally warned with the Warning Meter.
NOTE: This does NOT include genuine queries posed by members about the working of the dev team, where the underlying intention of the poster is to get answers to a valid question. We still would like this to be an open forum where members can question things which do not make sense to them. However, the questions have to be asked in a polite and respectful manner and sufficient time to be given to the dev team to answer the queries. Any disrespect , contempt or discourtesy shown in this regard will immediately fetch a warning raise. Once a dev team member gives an explanation to a member's genuine query, the topic will be closed and no other queries on that topic will be entertained.
If any member has any issue regarding any decision, they are free to PM the Admin or the Global Moderators.
Violations and Penalties
Violation or infringement of any of the rules in this Code of Conduct may result in the immediate revocation, suspension or termination of the privilege to post on India-Forums's forums or participate in the chat channels. India-Forums reserves the right to vary the severity and suddenness of the penalty based on the nature of the violation. India-Forums reserves the right to refuse to post or remove any posts, material or links that we deem unacceptable, offensive or in violation of the rules without further notice. We also reserve the right to suspend, prohibit or terminate the registration of any user who violates the rules from using the site or site related services without warning.
India-Forums staff and India-Forums appointed forum moderators are the sole arbiters as to what constitutes a violation of the Code of Conduct.
Penalties will be applied in India-Forums's discretion as follows:
Note 1: If possible warning(s) will be sent to the infringing user's email account. If email warnings are bounced, India-Forums will apply a temporary ban on that account until the user contacts us.
Note 2: Account bans may be applied to multiple accounts if the other accounts originate from the same computer and are believed to be aliases of the account being banned.
All administrative actions taken by the moderators and administrators of these forums and chat channels are final. These actions may include but are not limited to: delete/close/move thread/message, banning, kicking, & account reset. The posting of any personal attacks or criticisms directed at the India-Forums appointed forum moderators will not be tolerated. This includes comments or messages posted in the chat channels. Posts commenting on or criticizing forum administrative actions will be deleted. Any complaints or disagreements regarding forum moderation should be made by email to moderators @ india-forums.com
Should you have any questions or comments on India-Forums's Forum Code of Conduct please email moderators @ india-forums.com
Also feel free to contact the administrator or any of our moderators (via private messenger) if you have any conflict, questions, or concerns:Admin: priya.nair, vijay,
