Hey guys! This is the IPL forum DT -  WildestDreams &  Viswasruti welcoming you all to have a pleasant time here.

Hope you are all enjoying the Rainy season?  If you are not outdoors, then we bet that you are on IF trying to watch a few Cricket Matches and converse with your friends.  That's great, and we really want you to be discussing  and providing your insights to the different aspects of these ongoing and upcoming Matches. That's what makes this forum  a lot more interesting. That being said, we would like you all to make sure that your posts and comments are in line with the rules of the IF COC. We respect your freedom of speech and expression, however we need to ensure that everyone respects the other's  views. We have rules so that the different threads can run efficiently and fights are circumvented.

Herein lie the rules for India-Forums. Please make yourself familiar with them if you are not already.

Attacks against Fellow Member(s):  Any thread/ post that targets fellow members/ groups of members will be trashed without further question and the respective members who are involved in such activity will be subjected to immediate raise in warning level. Everyone is entitled to their opinion as long as it is done in a constructive manner but that by no means grants anyone the permission to attack others for sharing a different view.  Any member who is seen to hurl curses / ridicules / threatens / wishing unfortunate events for other members or their family members will be dealt with severity!  Any offensive personal remarks concerning a fellow member will lead to an immediate raise in their warning level. If members continue to break rules despite repeated warnings then they will face a temporary or permanent ban, which will be dependent on the severity of the incident. 


India Forums is a family friendly forum and we do not allow any explicit content and abusive / offensive slang. Discussions can be had in a civil manner without stooping down to cheap levels and cuss words. Any post found to be abusive / vulgar will simply be deleted. Members using crass and vulgarity in their topics will be warned or banned as per the situation.

Celebrity Slander: We understand that you are not going to be a fan of all players, but that does not allow anyone to resort to name-calling .We do not want anyone riling up fans of particular players and hence making the section a war zone.  Don't mock fans as it's not a crime to love a celebrity, and do not be sarcastic and pass it off as humor.

Moral Policing: Moral policing by members in any forum will NOT be tolerated. It only leads to unnecessary instigation/arguments.  The section Dev Team Members will do what is necessary when a situation arises.  Members are to simply abide by the rules and not preach others. If you should come across an abusive topic, please contact the development team, rather than taking matters in to your own hands. You can contact the Development team by either reporting the post in question and filling out what the issue is, or by sending a PM with a link to the thread containing a few sentences of what the issue.  When reporting the issues, make sure you use the hierarchy. Viewbie  Viswasruti & Moderator  WildestDreams   are to be contacted first and then up the ladder  Global Moderator (Jayshree, Shruti) and the Admin (vijay).

Criticism:  We repeat this time and again that we allow Criticism . You are free to show displeasure, contradict, disagree and criticize the players and their playing style. However, there is a fine line between these actions and bashing. Please note that point.

Spamming to Increase Posts: Lately, we have come across way too many game threads that simply promote spamming with an intention of raising member's number of posts.  All such threads will be trashed without notice. Please note that point.

Multiple IDs: MIDs are strictly prohibited and anyone who engages in making MIDs will receive a raise in warning level, even if no posts were made ever with the MID. 

Reporting an Issue: Please do not report the same post more than once. A member reporting the same post multiple times will receive a PM warning and if it continues there will be a raise in Warning Level too. This rule certainly does not intend to discourage the members from reporting, but often the same post is reported multiple times from the same member. Please do understand that DT needs at least 24 hrs 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.

Social Media Fights: Please do not bring in fights that happen outside India-forums into INDIA-FORUMS. There is nothing we can do with those issues, and it's best to report those issues through the external website's reporting mechanism.

Warning Levels (WL) and User Restrictions:

Any member who are found to be in violation of our Forum Rules and Code Of Conduct may be given a Warning Level increase as accessed by the Dev Team. Please note with each Warning Levels increase it will also restrict/limit the access to the forum features as given below:

  • 20% - First warning, so members are given a chance, without any other restrictions
  • 40% - Only 15 posts (replies in topics) can be made in a day
  • 60% - No new topics can be created in addition to restrictions of 40% warning level
  • 80% - Restricted PM access whereby PMs can ONLY be sent to Dev Team to resolve issues, in addition to restrictions of 60% warning level
  • 100% - Automatically bans the member

Warning levels can only be reduced after 3 months if the member has been active with no new warning increase and has not violated any of our forum rules. Its not an automated feature and requires the member to send a request PM to lower the Warning Level to the Dev Team member who raised their warning level and in the event the PM goes unanswered for more then a week please contact the Global Moderator.


When posting, please remember to respect and tolerate different thoughts and do not turn any post against your opinion into an unnecessary flame-wars. Try to be composed and collective when posting, as this will stop feeding the instigators. There is going to be a zero tolerance policy for those who just come to the forum to disrupt the activities and discussions. We don't enjoy raising warning levels or giving out bans, but we do want this place to be fun for all

Try to remember this simple mantra to make your time at India-Forums enjoyable


We welcome members to provide us with suggestions and comments, and we will work towards getting them addressed.
