1. Criticism and Bashing : India Forums is a platform to allow everyone to express their opinions freely within the COC and respectable limitations. Constructive Criticism is always welcomed. However bashing is not part of constructive criticism. Things can be said in a more civilized manner rather than being brutal. Please know the difference between bashing and constructive criticism. Constructive Criticism is when a member voices his/her opinions in a civil manner, without using derogatory words and phrases to prove his/her point. He/she is also able to state [without subjugation and with complete objectivity] as to where have they derived their opinion from. Having said that dislike, disagreement or contradiction is not considered bashing.

2. Name Calling : While criticizing something, there are times when members tend to go overboard and use certain derogatory and downright offensive words which shouldn't be used for any celebrity/member/DT member. Please remember that any derogatory references, comparing celebrity/member to animal or name calling any person [celeb/member/DT member] is against forum rules, and strict action will be taken against those who indulge in it. That being said, we do allow pet names and couple names for the celebs, as long as they're not offensive to anyone

3. Discussing and Mocking Members : Refrain from pointing fingers or taking direct/indirect or sarcastic digs at other members. Fans can be passionate towards their favorite celebs, but it does not mean they can be judgmental towards other members/fans. Calling other members/fan groups haters', 'bashers' or"real fans" in a snide manner is also provocative and comes under fandom attack.You cannot say that other members were mocking, and what you did was in retaliation to that. Being part of a the forum you are responsible for your own actions and the circumstances are insignificant there. If you have any issue with regards to any member, contact the section Development Team member instead of choosing to take the action into your own hands. There is absolutely no need to discuss/talk about members/fan groups when the forum is to discuss the show and its content instead of the forum and its members.

4. Personal Attack: Each and every one are entitled to having their own point of view, likes and dislikes. Differences in opinions are bound to exist in a forum like However, this does not permit one to attack their fellow members for not sharing the same point of view. Let us respect our fellow members and refrain from making any provocative statements, which may only lead to unnecessary quarrels.  Members come here to relax and unwind. Quoting some one's post and making a harsh comment begets displeasure. You have no right to post any abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic comments which is enough to hurt the sentiments of your fellow member. All these fictions are not worth hurting a fellow IF members. Please do remember this.

5. Discussing Actors Personal Life and Link Ups: This is yet another important issue. Any thread that revolve around rumors or promote baseless assumptions in terms of non-existing relationship about two co-stars will be strictly prohibited! For example, any particular thread that links two actors in real life without proper official source/confirmation, when they are simply co-stars/professional colleagues will be immediately locked down. However, you are more than welcome to discuss the characters and the actors with respect to the show and their roles thereof, without eaching the boundary.

6. Multiple ID's (MID): Code of Conduct strictly prohibits members from having multiple IDs. Please refrain from making MIDs, especially to bash celebrities, characters and/ or member. If ever convicted with having MIDs, all except the most active ID will be inactivated, followed by a raise in W/L to the active ID. And not every newbies are MID;- some are genuine members so do NOT attack members who belongs to newbie ladder by generalize them as MIDs. If Members suspect MID they are requested to contact DT. We DT will look into the matter but under no circumstances are members allowed to bully newbies or groupbie claiming then as MIDs in the Forum. Furthermore, we request all the members to refrain from creating MID's with a sole purpose to cause chaos, instigate members and disrupt the decorum of the forum. If any member is found doing so, that member will be questionable and the original ID will get a warning level raise and MIDs will be banned without further question.

7. Spamming and Quoting, Unnecessary Chatting: Do not spam with just emotions/numbers/gibberish to increase post count/pages. India-Forums has a Chat Club Forum and it will be appreciated if members use only and only that particular thread for any sort of chatting and any casual discussion. It has been noticed that these days literally EVERY thread ends up with members chatting irrelevant things. The discussions just get lost in the pages due to excessive and unnecessary spamming, quoting and chatting. Members should avoid doing so. If any topic gets deviated from its original premise - from discussion to chat zone, the DT has every right to lock the thread with discretion. Also, Quoting more than required just for the sake of increasing pages will NOT be allowed.

8. Bringing physical attributes into discussion: Discussions on physical attributes mainly to put down a person are strict NO as far as IF rules go. Anyone found making negative posts on physical appearances of a character/actor/fellow member will face strict action, even indirect mention of the matter will not be entertained.

9. Instigating/Entire post in CAPS: Recently we have had a spate of topics opened with the sole purpose of riling up fans and disrupting decorum of the forum. This includes but is not limited to stories, theories, comparisons, images, cartoons or other content which is intentionally sarcastic, mocking and derogatory to cause discontent and rile people up.  At the same time simply because there is an instigating topic does not mean that other members should respond and carry on such a topic.  

- Topics created to instigate fan groups or cause chaos in the forums will be closed and addressed per Devt. Teams discretion.

- The Devt. Team will also take appropriate stringent action based on the level of bashing/rule violation. 

- Regular members are expected to refrain from commenting on responding to such topics and posts. Members who continue to comment and extend such arguments will be held liable for continuing and adding to the instigation.

- If you find a topic to be instigating report and stop at that. Do not reply, argue, or talk back. 

-  Refrain from making counter posts on the forum, for example if you see a post which you feel you do not agree with in believe to be insulting/instigatory or abusive, DO NOT then go an create another topic in relation to it counter arguing the post maker, this only leads to further disrests and more arguments breaking out in the forum.  If you come across any posts which you believe are not in accordance with the Qubool Hai COC just REPORT and let the moderators of the section handle the situation.

Posting in all Capital Letters/CAPS is not permitted. This represents "SHOUTING" on the internet and it also can be viewed as offensive. If u want to stress on a word, couple of words can be typed in Capital but DO NOT type the whole Post in Capital Letters. Comparisons posts or polls which state 'Who was better?' 'Which is a better couple?' etc to do with actors/characters or couples will not be allowed on the forum. 

10. Reporting an Issue: Please do not report the same post more than once. This rule certainly does not intend to discourage the members from reporting but often same post is reported multiple times from the same member. Please do understand that DT needs at least 24 - 48 hours to work on the reported post and simply pressing the report button multiple times will only delay the process. Some situations demand the time and consultation of people and hence take time to get back, but we will surely get back as soon as possible.  

11. External Forum Issues/Promotion: This is hence keep external issues out of this forum and do not drag in fights from Facebook/Twitter/Forum-32 etc. over to this forum. We are not interested in demeaning anyone here neither are we interested in those fan wars so whatever happens on Facebook/Twitter or other sites should be dealt there only and not here. It may sound harsh but that's how we operate here.  Do not promote other sites/forums on I-F. You want to share link of the site with your friends you can do it via PM. Any site or blog demeaning the celeity and link given to the same in the signature or on the forum is NOT allowed. For more information refer - External Content from Social Networking Sites

12. Appreciation Threads:  Appreciation threads are to be used to praise and appreciate particular favorite actor/actress/characters. All discussions related to actor's/actress performance, looks, style and personality can be confined to ATs. Any negative comments/opinion on other characters/actors or on storyline that are not relevant to the thread's topic, scene or actor/characters scene with other characters should NOT be discussed here. Members can discuss relevant scene where other characters are involved but no speculation or hint about non-existent couple/love angle! We are forced to implement this restriction because many members asked for a place where they can discuss about their favorites while being free of the negativity towards them that they might encounter elsewhere in the main forum. Main purpose is bond here with other members who likes the same thing, while being free of negativity towards what they likes. 

Penalties associated with the ATs: If the DT sees more than 3 people breaking the AT rules constantly for a week, the effects of violations will kick start, which go as follows:  

First Violation : Warning Note. 
Second Violation : 2nd Warning Note. 
Third Violation : Another Warning Note + Warning PMs. 
Fourth Violation : AT will be closed for 24 hours (1 day). 
Fifth Violation : AT will be closed for 72 hours (3 days). 
Sixth Violation : AT will be closed for 7 days (1 week). 
Seventh Violation : AT will be moved from the YHM section to the CC section.  

The rules are applicable for multiple violation and not single post as it will be dealt individually! Having said that, please do not assume that every report submitted will be entertained. We will go through the reports and only if we find the report valid based on above rules, then we will speak to the Admins of the AT and action will be taken accordingly as stated above.   

13. Fan-Fictions/One-Shots or Short-Stories and Mature content: To know regarding what is allowed and what is not, kindly refer to || Fan Fiction Forum Rules & Regulations || whereby this rule would be applied to India-Forum wide. 

14. Regarding carrying Signatures in your profile: Kindly do not carry any signatures which are provoking or instigating any fan group or indirectly making fun of any actor or character .If Dev team finds any member carrying such signature in their profile ,then the profile of the member will be edited ASAP and the signature will be deleted from his/her profile and the member will be sent an official warning PM for it . Rest all the rules regarding no. of siggies and size of siggies can be found in this ATTN: Signature/Avatar Size - Guidelines Thread .

15. Report Button/Response Time: Please keep in mind that the Moderators are also members like yourself. We would also want to have the time to make posts like yourself and discuss with our friends; and we also have a personal life. Meaning, we cannot be around to babysit the forum 24/7. Please allow a reasonable time frame of 48 hours before creating a hullabaloo and/or escalating the matter to the CMs/GMs. We try to address issues and respond to PMs and Reports as soon as we can get to them, but we request you to grant us some leverage as well. Instead of mass PMing it would appreciated if one person PM's the concerned DT with regards to the issue.

16. Moral Policing : If there are any topic or comment that breaches the forum rules, members are to hit the report button and state why do they feel the post is problematic. Members are then requested to wait patiently for around 24 hours for the DT to come online and respond to the request instead of making more remarks as making a comment targetting a specific person/groups but still constitutes as moral policing, targeting and name-calling, things which breach the forum rules. It is easier to report, instead of opening counter topics to defend member's stance or moral police/preach to the forum about what to do and what not to do. There is a reason that DT are in this forum, please leave the rule enforcement to us. So please, don't tell members what to do, and what not to do and don't tell members what to post and who to post it on. 

17. Problems/Issues with the Development Team: If you have problems with the Development Team, please PM us and let us know! We DT members are not biased towards any fan group but that does not mean we aren't fans of the leads or any other characters in QH. We have opinions too, about the show, and what improvements we might want to see in the show. But that does not make us biased. Once a problem is reported, it is the DT's worry and responsibility to deal with the problem, and just because someone is not aware of what is happening to the topics they reported, it does not mean that we are not doing anything to stop/help.    

Also, the DT is not allowed to disclose what we are doing with certain threads or what action we are taking so please don't try to make judgments on our decisions because we just don't go through the topics you guys report but through EVERYTHING in that particular thread. Just because we don't highlight step by step as to which action was taken against which member, it doesn't mean action wasn't taken. If you have a problem, PM the Dev Team members. Also once a DT member has posted a note on a thread regarding rule breaking, please refrain from further dragging the matter in the thread. 

If you have questions, and queries that you'd like us to answer, please PM us. We'd be happy to look into it.  

In case you are not convinced by any of the above,you may contact the admin.  

Coolbies and Videobies are NOT included in the moderation team. They only provide Written/Video updates of the show on the forum. Incase you have any issues or problems with certain posts, PM us, the section DTs  BUT please give us sufficient time to respond to them, accordingly. Incase a topic goes totally out of control in our absence, feel free to contact the Global Moderators.   

A reiteration of other minor Rules and Reminders [Above rules including some other reminders.]:

  • Do not make headings or posts in ALL CAPS.

New Rules and Regulations for All Appreciation Threads Across Zee TV Froums

Dedicated Appreciation threads (ATs) for celebrities across all Zee TV sub-forums will be subject to specific rules here onwards.

  • The word "Appreciate" it self means to have a highly favorable opinion of someone or something. You are supposed to appraise the value of the work of the actors and express them in positive light. A thread where all the fans of the Actor/Character/Couple gather to discuss what they liked.

  • In an essence Constructive criticism/Positive Outlook towards Actors/Characters/Jodi must prevail in these threads.

  • Members must understand discussions are restricted in ATs.  ATs are safe zones for the Actor/Jodi fans to exchange information without being subject to negativity. You have the main forum to present opinions negatively and debate...So Discussion of actors/ characters/ performances and story tracks that do not directly relate to the show or whom the AT is dedicated to should be kept to a minimum, in particular when they imply stating negative opinions. However we are allowing harmless Chit-chat in ATs but the chit-chat should be only limited to ATs only

  • Bashing of other Jodi/Actors/Characters in ATs is NOT permitted at all..If members of an AT are caught discussing other actors/couples negatively, then AT will be held liable for it and may be subject to warnings & eventual closure/Ban as follows ...

    If the DT see more than 3  people breaking the AT rules constantly for a week , then the DT is allowed to punish the whole AT by closing it for 24 hours [during which another AT cannot be made in CFC or CC] and then if it happens again then it will be locked for 48 hours after which it will be shifted to CFC/CC?

     This rule is applied so that members and Admins of a AT can  tell their own friends not to  break rules as the entire AT is effected due to the misdoings of   2-3 members
    This may sound strict and very harsh, but unfortunately we are forced to take these measures to maintain peace...
    So remember guys, if you see a friend breaking a rule in an AT, make sure you tell them to stop or else you can say  goodbye to your AT for a certain period of time which the DT finds liable. So in easy steps: Don't break rules/bash and don't allow your friends to either!

  • Admins/Monitors of the AT (Those who are opening the AT will be called the Admins/Monitors) will report who the troublemakers are to the Dev team in a timely manner, so that the AT/other genuine fans are not penalized...Here the Admins have a big responsibility and so we believe them to be totally unbiased as the whole responsibility of a AT is on you ..

  • Constant negativity or repeated discussions/bashing of actors unrelated to the AT in spite of repeated warnings from DT, will result in AT closure and moved to CFC...But dont assume that every report submitted by opposite fangroup will be entertained .. We will go through the reports and only if we find the report valid based on above rules , then we will speak to the Admins of the AT and action will be taken accordingly as state above ...

IMP : Regarding KSG's Replacement

Hi everyone,

I'm sure you all must be shocked/sad over the news of KSG being replaced in QH. However there are a few points which we believe is essential to highlight to keep the forum in a peaceful state at all time.

Multiple topics on KSG quitting the show

Do take note that we have a dedicated sticky thread for all discussions on KSG being replaced to be made. Hence members are to make their discussions only this thread [KSG to b replaced/KSG CONFIRM/Gul-All article/Discussion HERE-DT NT-38] instead of opening multiple threads to discuss the same topic. We will be closing down any repetitive threads hence forth without no closing note

Blame Game & Bashing

It is also noted that the blame game have begun with some blaming KSG as unprofessional and some blaming the PH for this decision of the replacement. What transpired leading to the replacement is not known to us and its best for members not to speculate as there is always two sides to each stories. Hence do not make use of this opportunity to bash KSG or the PH for this decision. Dislike and criticism are allowed but insulting/mocking comments with clear intention to put down in a derogatory manner will not be tolerated and members who are found to have indulged in bashing will get a direct raise of 20% WL.

Bringing in names of other Actor

Since there is possibility of other actor stepping in into the role of Asad, names of other actors would surface and its not their fault if they are going to be accepting a role that comes in their way. Comparison of new actor replacing Asad and KSG is allowed to some extent as long as the new actor is not mocked or bashed. Members are reminded to keep their discussion limited to actors who may fit the role and not mock/bash or give names like (________ will look like a clown in the role),( ____________ is nothing compared to our KSG as this actor can't act... Etc). We do understand that in situations like this where an actor is being replaced, comparisons is bound to happen as the new actor will stepping into the same role done by KSG. We do hope that such comparison and discussions will take place in a civilized tone without any mocking or bashing since the fans of new actor too will join this forum and we should make sure that their sentiments are not hurt. If we noticed any mocking or bashing comments, we will not only stop the comparisons right away but members will get direct WL rise too.

External Websites/Sources

Do take note that external websites such as Forum 32/Facebook/twitter is not not in anyway related to India forums. You may share tweets and news only as long as it has authenticity. Do not drag any issues that happened in external websites onto the forum  creating unnecessary fights between the members or fan groups as strict action would be taken.

We do hope everyone would remain calm and follow the rules of the forum at all time and also ensuring that the decorum of the forum is maintained at all time. Shall you have any enquiries, do send any of of the forum DT's for further clarification. We shall treat that everyone have read this and we would be acting based on this.

Final Warning Guidelines Regarding Actor Bashing/Comparisons

We are well aware that the forum stands divided now after the replacement for Asad's character and to make sure all group of members can co-exist peacefully in this forum , we are putting up some very simple warning guidelines  for all which we hope will be followed from today onwards ..

No Bashing/Mocking/Name calling of Actors whether its KSG or Raquesh allowed : So to keep it simple and straight ,NO  bashing or mocking of the new actor Raquesh will b allowed in the forum ... You can discuss about him both positive and negative only in terms of his acting in a constructive manner but any sort of mocking , sarcasm . name calling or using curse words against the actor will result in direct WL rise and also such posts will be deleted instantly from the forum .. Same rule applies for KSG too ... Just because you are supporting Raqesh , that does not give right to bash or mock KSG indirectly .. In short no actor bashing will b allowed for both actors ...

 Comparison of two actors(KSG and Raquesh) allowed only in terms of acting But NO personallife/professional life comparisons Allowed at all :  Comparison between two actors only in terms of acting will be allowed to some extent since the character of Asad remains the same , however this comparison will be only limited to their acting only and no personal/professional life comparisons will be allowed ... Also dev team will keep a close watch on such comparison posts and if we see any indirect mocking or bashing or personal attacks or stereotyping of fan grps (eg:haters ,fanbots etc) in the name of acting comparison then the post will be closed straightaway and members will be given warnings based on their past records  ...

No Off-screen Comparison or mocking of KaBhi and Raquesh-Surbhi equations will be allowed :  Yes you heard it right ,  Not a single post will be allowed where off-screen equation of Raquesh-Surbhi over KaBhi will be compared or mocked ...Individually both grps can discuss the on-screen/off-screen professional life chemistry of both the Jodis but no comparison or mocking of either jodi based on their off-screen equation will be allowed and such posts will be closed straightaway 
and members will be given warnings based on their past records..

We hope every group of members whether you are a KSG fan or Raquesh fan or Surbhi fan or Asya fan in general or just a QH show fan will follow the above rules and maintain the decorrum of the forum ...

Hi All,

As per the title suggests, there are going to be changes being implemented in regards to Pictures being posted in QH Forum.

Firstly, this is Qubool Hai Forum,  and definitely not a Forum to discuss Personal Lives of Actors/Actresses and make remarks on them. So what sort of offscreen images is allowed or not allowed?

Images related to Qubool Hai.

  • Images of a cast which is related to the show is allowed to be posted as a standalone topic. For example if there is a picture of Surbhi is rehearsing for ZRA whereby its representing Qubool Hai show, this shall be allowed as a separate discussion topic since is related to the show.

Images not related to Qubool Hai.

  • Images of a cast/certain individual which is not related to the show is to be posted in their respective Appreciation Thread (AT). For example if the cast is snapped on the way to somewhere or with some fans or at some event which is not related to the show is to be only posted in their AT. If you are found breaching this rule, your topic will be locked without notice and the first will will be moved to an AT/Picture Gallery.

We hope for everyone's co-operation. For concerns, please feel free to PM us.

Final Warning to all Regarding Link-Up posts 

Dear QH members,

We seriously hate to do this but we are left with no choice where we have recently noticed an increase in some of the issues around the forum and as a result, we are here to remind you of the do's and don'ts in the forum.

This forum allows members  to discuss on the show, which include appreciating the actors, their characters, the scenes and the chemistry among other things. However it all shall only be done within the scope of the show. We had noticed members speculating, 'cooking up' stories about off-screen relationship between Karan and Surbi. Remember to respect the personal life of these actors!

Please understand that you are allowed to discuss about Karan-Surbi as long as it is done within the scope of the show.Members at times cross the line between real and reel by going personal on the actor who plays the characters on screen and the actors off-screen. Karan is married while Surbi is only his co-star of the show.  Therefore any romantic speculations of the two will not be allowed. 

There are times when official article websites release articles for example 'tiff over co-stars'.. etc'. Members are allowed to post the article in the forum but discussion has to be limited to the post and there shall be no reason to open another post just to speculate or blow the whole issue out of proportion. Do take note that these said article posts will be strictly monitored by the Dev Team and if the DT Team comes across any discussion linking up two actors or giving any sort of sexual references, the said comments will be trashed and members will get immediate Warning Level raise without any PM notification

We stress again that members are free to appreciate their characters or their chemistry onscreen, but it does NOT have to be romantic in nature or contain sexual suggestions indicating or implying on their off-screen relationship. Any instances of inappropriate discussions WILL lead to warning level raise for ALL involved. 

Since we have been reminding members again and again, if the DT comes across any post that violates the rules as mentioned above,  the QH Devt Team will either  immediately close the post or immediately increase the individual's WL by 20% based on the severity of the comment made or both at once.

Members are also advised to go through the forum rules to be aware of what sort of discussions is allowed or not : Qubool Hai Forum Rules: Read and Heed!. Also  do refer to the revised and updated IF CoC: Participation Guidelines & Rules

The QH Development Team will assume that each and every member of this forum has reviewed and understood the contents above. These rules are effective now. 

Please feel free to PM us regarding any concerns/questions regarding the same. We appreciate your cooperation.
