Dear India Forums Members,

We are thrilled to share some exciting news about the amazing features and enhancements we’re working hard on to make your experience on India Forums even better! Here’s a sneak peek into what’s coming your way:

  1. Enhanced Navigation: 
    We're restructuring our navigation to make it easier for you to find your way around the site. The new design will include a prominently displayed Translate option, allowing you to read the site in your preferred local language. You'll also be able to jump straight to topics of interest directly from the navigation menu.

  2. Cooling Off Period for Account Deactivation:
    We understand that sometimes users need a break. We're introducing a cooling-off period for deactivated accounts, after which the account will be permanently deleted. We're considering a period of 3 to 6 months for this change. More details will be shared soon.

  3. Reorganized and Expanded Categories:
    We’re reorganizing our categories and adding some interesting new ones to expand into newer areas of discussion. This will help us cater to a wider range of interests and make India Forums even more engaging for everyone! We are also changing the page so that its easier to find relevant Forums.

  4. Improved Topic Display:
    We're revamping how topics are displayed to you. You'll have the option to choose between a compact view and a card view. Additionally, you'll be able to see all topics within a specific category in one place. For example, the Star Plus category will show all the topics from the show forums within the Star Plus category.

  5. Profile Image Restrictions for New Users:
    To enhance security and prevent misuse, we're introducing new measures to restrict the addition of profile images for multiple identity users (MIDs) unless they have reached the Groupbie ladder group.

  6. Enhanced Blocking Feature:
    Our blocking feature is getting a powerful upgrade! This has been a highly requested feature, and we're excited to announce that we’ve found a possible solution. Now, when you block a member, their posts won’t just be hidden. Instead, you’ll see an overlay with a message indicating that the post is hidden because you’ve chosen to block the user, with the option to view it if you choose to by clicking the "View" button. Enjoy a more personalized and comfortable browsing experience. Please note, Non-Ladder Group members, which primarily include DT members and Admin, cannot be blocked. Enjoy a more personalized and comfortable browsing experience.

Stay tuned for these exciting changes and more updates as we continue to enhance your experience on India Forums. We appreciate your continued support and engagement.

Warm regards,

The India Forums Team

The new look we are aiming to have it ready by next weekend. Some additional updates like Card View which will have bigger image will follow later as it requires rescanning the whole database and update topic meta data.

Rest of the feature will also be worked upon and we expect to finish them all by end of this month.
