    Members of DFI as always DFI is leading with new ideas and always give more say to the members , recently to maintain high standards in the forum we had to resort to temporary banning of some unruly members.

    But as we always maintan banning a member id not the solution making the member understand and respect the DFI tolerance levels is important therefore we have started a very first for any forum.we have introduced the PRISON CELL Forum for Suspended members.below are the features.


    1. For temporary banned members the new usergroup is suspended group
    2. Suspended members can view the forum and read but cannot post or make use of any other dfi feature
    3. Suspended members will be able to view a special forum section titled PRISON CELL which will only be visible to them and they can continue posting there and discuss with fellow suspended members as well as understand what DFI stands for and what needs to be corrected.
    4.Prison cell wont tolerate any posts related to the issues of member suspension its for thr member to read and understand DFI and get used to the system here and not to repeat the offences.
    5. suspended members wont have any PM, VM shoutbox rights.
    6. Suspended members are locked from re-registering or making new accounts automatically till the term is completed.


    in addition to the suspended members we have the banned usergroup as before which is for permanent bans for serious offences.


    We are sure members will be happy with this new feature and hope you never see the prison cell forum ever .


    NOTE:- We would like to remind all members that the staff do not discuss any thing related to other member suspensions/ban in the open forum all questions must be addressed via pm and the said member in question must be accountable for his action and ready to present his case to the staff if he wants after completing his term , inciting fellow members against the staff decisions will be dealt with strict action.
    Any threads hence forth discussing staff action related to suspension and ban will be closed without reply to any queries.as the offender will have enough oppurtunities to continue and correct himself in the prison cell.



    Happy to see you all active in DFI

    Generally, the banned poster would like to follow the forum immediately after he/she is banned out of curiosity or out of rage. When the poster is not allowed to follow the forum, they create another account. Sometimes they create another account just to show that they cannot be kept out. All this can be avoided with this new feature....

    I personally feel that Personal Message feature should be enabled for a banned member so that he can present his case. Its very frustrating to get banned and having no chance to present his case. I mean he gets no chance to prove his point of view.

    Shash, DFI staff bans someone only when there is a violation of any rule. So no case there to present any case!!!

    The new suspension feature allows you to post in the prison cell, may be it can be used to present the case if at all to appeal against suspension.

    But this new feature just proves that DFI is not after people and ban them at the drop of the hat. Any ban is deliberated and then acted upon. Its not an instinctive decision though the staff has full power to do that.

    Padded Cell would be more appropriate.

    Their views are fine, but a trifle over the top as far as we are concerned. We live in a societal world with all sorts of opinions, except that of the cuckooland!

    Well while in jail, your number is your name. See old bollywood movies and you'll see the "inispector sahib" calling kaidi number 420.

    Instead of banning for one day or 1 week they should be ghosted so no one can see there nonsense posts and they'll get ignored. Either they'll sort themselves out or leave.

    Ofcourse mods can view there posts but not normal people. Infact this is good idea for new members...first 25 posts should be ghosted so that mods can assess whether this person is worthy to continue or not.

    Yousufji there is much more to it than what meets your mind!

    Its a US invention (Allan Pinkerton - a detective) - Bollywood is far away inventing real stuff!

    Tell me what are the numbers of Bollywood copyrights versus Hollywood, if you may?


    Leaving this charsobisi that is :)

    Those who are sent to the Padded Cell, take heart.

    There is a thin line between lunacy and genius.

    Anyone declared a lunatic can still feel he/ she is a genius!

    And that the world is Cruel!! :tears:
