Within the next couple of days, we shall have a lasting solution to these "pic issues" where different members have different opinions as to whether the pic is acceptable or not. For now, please let the matter rest.

Presentation looks nice😍 Excellent suggestion!!
#suggestions #moderator I wish IRI could provide information regarding the platform orientation of major Railway station/Junctions like the one I have uploaded. The picture is of the orientation of platforms of Manmad Jn. I would like comments on it by the members.

There is no such formal rule. But it seems most TLMs and members are following this custom for some time. As such, we may continue this custom, and only assign large boards as TBs.

At the same time, there is no need to "urgently remove" small pics. Removing TBs comes under the category of unnecessay trivial updates, and such TL entries need to be voided.

Good n essential for Cleansing
A minor update, but may impact many members:
Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they receive. FMs will promptly void complaints and issue GW/SW to members misusing the Report feature.
main purpose of a Red Flag is to provide constructive feedback to the creator. Invalid Red Flags include:
1. short comments where the reasons are not clear
2. making impossible demands
3. posting a comment that makes fun of the train/creator and provides no constructive feedback to the creator,
4. blank comments
By tomorrow, an enhancement will be made whereby, a Strict Warning will be issued against the member simultaneously whenever a Red Flag is removed. As SW means the member will no longer be able to rate any trains. Thereafter, the member will have to clearly explain why the Red Flag was given without sufficient reason. If the reasons are not satisfactory, the SW will NOT be lifted.
Finally, all are welcome to use the Red Flag feature, but please provide clear and honest reasons so that the creator of the TT can understand and improve his train, rather than just demoralizing him/her.

Sir, if one were to go through Imaginary train section it will look as though that it has been hijacked by one member (as pointed out by a member-Yash in a fun post a few days back). Anyway if that person wants to create only imaginary trains it's his wish but he is the one always cribbing about Red Flags. I myself have never given one; but the creators need to take feedback in a positive manner. If loco reversal is needed and when we type comments, it isn't implemented. I just leave and scroll on, but the creator simply can't create with wrong data and turn deaf when corrections are pointed out.
clearly we can see fake IDs giving Greats and Greens for one's own train as pointed by one member (IRF) above.
Coming to other problems: Sir please bring about changes in TL updation. 2 things you promised - Dormancy clause for Admins and creating local TLMs are needed. So many TLs pending, so many members complaining about difficulty in updation doesn't augur well for the site. Only TLs of Admins and TLMs are stamped and hardly any concern for others... And any talk about it in forum gets archived, deleted.... Thankfully this is your blog so at least we can talk here ;)

Sir I think he is talking about too much concentration of power in some hands
Someone is admin also, he is timeline monitor also and he is forum monitor also..means 3 major powers to same person.
Iam not pointing out any one personally but some members are there who are very much regular members but they have not been given any rights / duties
think if power is divided into everyone equally then most persons will be happy.

1. Member suggestions for FM appointment are not being taken, as FMship is not some "Popularity Contest" within IRI. When a member is appointed FM, he/she assumes the formality, responsibility and authority of an FM, and makes decisions impartially, irrespective of his/her past blogging, etc. FMs are not expected to be very popular. They are doing a service to this Forum by maintaining order and decorum, and this objective is being met very well. Their service is much appreciated.
2. The previous objection system was not working well because "Qualitative judgements" need
to be made against issues, not just "how many" members filed an Objection. Even if there is one "valid" complaint, it needs to be acted upon promptly.
3. As for Complaints, yes, every member has the right to file a Complaint. There seems to be an assumption that every Complaint is "acted upon". Every single Complaint is "looked at" by an FM. Many, many complaints are VOIDED. A Complaint simply means that the FM will take a look at it, and make an informed judgement about what to do. Just because a member calls for a deletion/archival DOES NOT mean that the blog will be deleted/archived. Not only that, we have a full-fledged communication/discussion within the FM Forum as well as with the Complainant against every Complaint whenever there is any ambiguity or doubt. So, yes, it will not be pleasurable for a member to have his/her blog archived or deleted, but the decision is being made deliberately, and the member will have to accept the decision in this Forum, whether he "approves" of it or not.
4. As for power/freedom, members continue to have all blogging/flagging privileges. However, any activity that is against our guidelines will be acted upon. So please feel free to file Red Flags, but with proper and valid reason. And yes, members do NOT have the "power" or "freedom" to misuse site features. And yes, sometimes, there WILL be disagreement. Members will claim that their activity is "not misuse", their blog should "not be archived", etc, and will instead allege "misuse of power by FM". This is EXPECTED. But in ALL cases of disagreement, members will HAVE to abide by FM directives in the interest of preserving Forum harmony. Members are NOT allowed to argue with FMs and waste their time.
Thanks to all for continuing to be vigilant and ensuring the friendliness/decorum of the Forum.

Useful. Thanx Sir.
Yes, the update was wrong, but even so sometimes it takes a long time to update TTs, and a small piece gets mixed up, and it results in the ENTIRE TL getting voided. In such cases where a difficult TL is 90% correct, then all are request to update the missing piece or correct the wrong part in another TL, and let the current TL remain confirmed.
Within the next couple of days, we shall also be introducing the "Edit Timeline" feature whereby TLMs will be able to quickly correct the incorrect
part, and re-Confirm the SAME TL.

-@all members:
As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also, as of recently, these issues have started flooding the FM Forum - whether the train name should have the tag "SF" or not, whether Regional language should be blank if the train starts from Mumbai and the Marathi name is written exactly the same as the Hindi name, etc.

We need to put a stop to this obsession with getting the name "exactly right" and having long, unending debates about names. Pl. understand that 99.9% of our travellers do not come to IRI to scrutinize train/station names with a microscope. They don't care if you call the train "Abc Express" or "Abc SF Express". If we get the name "somewhat right", then it is FINE. On the other hand, this phenomenon is taking ALL of our focus and energies away from useful and meaningful site updates.
TLMs have been advised that hereafter Trivial name updates should be summarily rejected and voided.
Thanks for everyone's cooperation.

I agree with the points you stated. If this is turning into debate, then it needs to be stopped. But I think, if u had announced about making/ not making changes even before this trend started, then the changes would have been correct or the debate would have been avoided.

As mentioned previously, TLMs are requested to Confirm partially correct Entries, and thereafter quickly fill in the remaining information. While giving credit to the original updater, this will also save overall effort, as the next person just has to fill in the missing information.

-@all: Generally, in cases of partial updates, just Confirm, and then "fill in the partial update" in a new TL. Similarly, in cases of significant TL updates, where a small part is incorrect, you may Confirm stamp the entry, and then quickly do a re-update correcting it. This way, we move ahead quickly.

A. One member do partial update then other member do full update so whole time TLM busy in Mumbai local only.
B. And these updates are USELESS
No one visit IRI to see HINDI or REGIONAL name of Mumbai local
update are used only to RAISE TL count to magical figure of 1000.
C. Please separate Mumbai local updates from updates of other trains
