IMPORTANT: Cleaning up +1 posts from all Forums

Posted: 2 years ago
Hi All,
We are in the process of removing low quality and +1 type posts like "thank you" / tfs /  Smiley .
Which is basically pushing quality posts to deep pages for other members. So some members will be seeing drop in their post counts. I hope you will understand and co-operate with us on this.

There are major changes coming to the site as we prepare ourselves for the launch of the India Forums app. Our android version is already in Alpha and we are inviting testers to help us test it. I will be posting the details on a separate topic.


This was informed to our members last year also:

Hi All,
We are making a few changes to improve the content quality in our forums. We would like to encourage members to use the "Like" button instead of posting "TFS", "Thanks" or other +1 kind of replies to a post. We would be removing such responses from the Topics and this might bring down Post counts for some of the members. 

This will improve the visibility of meaningful responses and reduce the number of pages a member has to browse to read them.

We would be removing them from the entire site gradually and would like to seek your co-operation in this matter. 

In order to combat Link spam we now have an in-house resource to handle this so that our moderators can take care of the more important stuffs.

I hope you all will agree that it will improve our Forums considerably in the long run.

Please do not post "TFS" / "Thanks" kinda response until you have something more substantial to add to the discussion. Use the "Like" button instead.

Currently we are scanning our entire database with over 40 million posts for Links and Images which no longer works.
In our next step we will be removing the same from the Posts so that rest of the content remains intact.
