7. Bashing/Personal Attacks: Bashing and making personal attacks against any actor/actress/CVs/members/fan groups/characters etc. is not allowed. Make sure members know the difference between bashing and criticism. A critic is one who discusses things in perspective, never loses objectivity and states things in a logical and constructive way. But a basher is one, who states the points a bit too heavily such that, it no longer looks like criticism but looks like a total attack. Everyone have their own point of view let's respect it. You have right to raise your opinion but one should see lines ain't crossed. Avoid making posts that are abusive, derogatory, insulting or sarcastic enough to affect the sentiment of another member. This is against IF COC and won't be tolerated.
1. Verbal warningIf for some reason you do not agree with the warning you have received in your topic then you need to PM the moderator/viewbie who warned you instead of starting an argument in the forum. If you are not satisfied with the reply given by the DT members then you may take up your issue with the Channel Moderators. However, absolutely no arguments on the forum as that will lead to a direct increase in your warning level. If you have any doubts/suggestions/objections regarding anything then feel free to PM either hinz , munnihyderabad, OR *Resham* (Channel Moderator, Star Plus)
2. PM warning from Dev Team
3. WL Increase.
4. Lead to possible Ban.

Members involved in any of these violation might be subjected to a 20% Warning level rise.
No Moral Policing: Everyone is welcome to express their opinions within the IPKKND...EBP rules and IF COC. We would prefer members to stop preaching on the forum telling members what to do what not. Let the moderators decide what is needed on this forum and what is not or what one member is allowed to do or not. You cannot stop someone from posting in any topic or making new topics. Do not become a moral police on the forum. If you find anyone breaching rules, please Report the topic and or contact the Dev Team via PMs. We will deal with the issue at the earliest possible.
India-Forums is a platform to allow everyone to express their opinions freely within the COC and respectable limitations. Members have the freedom to express their own perspective, which may disagree and or contradict someone else's point of view.
Disclaimers: Any posts that we see with people telling others what to do, to leave the forum because they belong to one fan group, or anything along those lines, will be removed. Any posts that we see with a "PS: Bashers stay away", "Only for ____ fans", etc. containing disclaimers will be edited by Dev Team. If member is found doing the same even after reminders/warnings it will lead to warning level raise.
Discussion of one topic in another topic: Of late, members are found to be posting screenshots of comments and links to the posts of other members in other topics and taking personal digs and mocking the opinions presented by other members, such topics will strictly be NOT tolerated in the forum. These topics will be trashed and members involving in such type of posts or discussions, with an intention, to mock or humiliate or incite the opinions of other members will be subject to severity from the Dev Team
Personal life discussion of actors: Any sort of speculations, assumptions, rumors regarding the actors in the personal life has to be stopped right away. You can criticize and discuss the actors only with respect to the character they play, their look/style and acting alone. Having said that, whom they date, with whom they pose pictures, with whom they DO NOT pose pictures should not be the topic of concern here in this forum. Yes, you can discuss actor's personal life, provided the actors notify something about themselves, until then, NO personal life discussions will be tolerated in the forum.
However, off late members are seen to be involved in camouflaging actor names with character names and discussing actors personal life in disguise of character names. Please be noted, the DT is aware of such posts and topics which are disguised personal life discussions of actors, such topics will be trashed by the Dev Team and due action will be taken against the members involved in such posts/comments.
Name calling or typecasting of members: It has come to the notice of the Dev Team, that most of the members are labeling and type casting others as "negative" poster, for they always criticize the show. This is a forum and criticism are part of discussions. Please be tolerant to different views expressed as part of discussions. However, everyone, please be noted, that typecasting a member and name calling the member as "negative" "hater" will be strictly dealt with and members involved in such comments will face severity from the Dev Team .
Appreciation Threads: These are for appreciation of the actor/character, please refrain from any inciting comments against actors, characters. DO remember actors are not the writers, it's the creatives, blaming the actors for the length of the role in the show or for the TRPs of the show have to be stopped right away. Alongside, discussion of common topics, comments against other fan groups, will NOT be tolerated in the ATs. Members involved in such violations will be individually dealt by the Dev Team, in case there are too many violations across the AT, it will garner a Warning Note to the AT.
