So, for quite some time I have been confused about the rules which are being followed up in the Indian board. There was Benson back in 2013-2017 who made up the now available unofficial rules, but they have been outdated and many of the new members aren't still following up them quite actively and are making up their own rules for the board. Since the forum on the whole relies on the idea of decentralization and free speech, devising certain specific rules is not really advisable but on the other hand leaving up random spam topics in various parts of the local board would clutter the whole Indian board quite sooner.

There are no official rules and there shouldn't be any official rules forever and this is how a decentralized forum should work based on the inputs gained from various community members. S_D the author of original Unofficial rules of Indian forum is highly inactive and any new suggestions or improvements in forum (like Merit, DT decentralization etc) were never addressed in the topic and has been outdated since then.

S_D's contribution through the topic was certainly great but shouldn't we move forward by having more inputs from community members?

- Scam Accusations and Reputations of a bitcoin based company is being posted in the main board but they do find a place in the Buyer/ Seller Reputations (India) board.

- Similarly, Press & News from India board should consist of news paper clippings which highlights about cryptocurrency standards being followed in India which isn't currently happening. Many newbie accounts are posting stuffs which are being published in newspaper and doesn't relate to bitcoin in general.

- Regional Languages (India) sub board seems to be rotten. Shitposting newbies from various parts of our country are churning out shits in the form of posts. We never have any good discussions going over there in our Indian languages.

India is a complex country where we speak a large number of languages and follow a varied number of traditions. So my idea is to have the main Indian board to be present in English and move our Indian language topics to Regional Languages (India) sub board. What are your thoughts on this suggestion?

- Marketplace (India) : Since, the board is dedicated to India I hope dealing with currencies other than INR shouldn't be allowed. I have seen newbies posting stuffs like selling bitcoin for EUR, USD and other global currencies. What is the purpose of selling Bitcoin other than INR in an Indian board  Huh

What are the community thoughts on framing certain set of new unofficial rules which can make our local board more organised for new members?

Definitely, we should update the guidelines for posting in Indian board but without the dedicated moderator I doubt that guidelines or unofficial rules will be much effective.

And Altcoin board is filled with multiple threads like ANN, Bounties,Exchanges and much more so its better to have child boards as well. Roll Eyes

Exactly the Altcoin is full of utter SPAM and uneeded shitcoin related promotional information. It should either be relegated to an Altcoins (Announcements) sub-board or deleted all together as the amount of discussions in the India section is not much anyway.

Nice thought.

Alt Coins (India) and Regional Languages (India) are two boards which require instant attention.

Currently, Alt Coins (India) has become a regional copy of Annoncements (Altcoin) section. The board doesn't contain anything else than announcement threads of Altcoins/Tokens. It shall have one sub-board. The main Altcoins (India) board shall be used for general altcoin and Indian projects (like Exchanges, crypto projects) related discussion and the sub-board for announcement threads in regional language with a clear cut pinned thread instructing members to not post ANNs in main board.

On the other hand, Regional Languages (India) section has completely become directionless. I don't see much utility in that section. Some members publish translation of popular Bitcointalk threads in that section which is the only good thing I see there. Except that, most of the threads are purposeless.

Although, I am new here and don't know if my suggestions hold any value but I will still try to share my opinion on this.

- Scam Accusations and Reputations of a bitcoin based company is being posted in the main board but they do find a place in the Buyer/ Seller Reputations (India) board.

Agreed. If someone wishes to report a company or a person doing illicit activities involving Crypto then they should post in the above mentioned board with adequate proof.

- Similarly, Press & News from India board should consist of news paper clippings which highlights about cryptocurrency standards being followed in India which isn't currently happening. Many newbie accounts are posting stuffs which are being published in newspaper and doesn't relate to bitcoin in general.

This rule should definitely be put in place. Any thing related to Crypto happening in in India can and should be posted in this section but news that is not related to Crypto in any way should be left out. Or posted in off-topic section for general discussion.

- Regional Languages (India) sub board seems to be rotten. Shitposting newbies from various parts of our country are churning out shits in the form of posts. We never have any good discussions going over there in our Indian languages.

I have never visited the section before but I did just now and you're right, I think regional languages post which are not related to Cryptocurrency should be moved to off-topic.

India is a complex country where we speak a large number of languages and follow a varied number of traditions. So my idea is to have the main Indian board to be present in English and move our Indian language topics to Regional Languages (India) sub board. What are your thoughts on this suggestion?

Totally agree but I just saw the alt-coin section and in it I saw multiple posts in Hindi and/or phonetic Hindi. Should that be allowed? Or should that be moved to regional language section? I think we can set up a rule to post in English in main board and if the person posting is not comfortable with that then allow them to post in their regional language and ask them to post their translation in English below their original post and the title, which can be done using Google/Yandex/Bing translate easily. Either that or add more child boards under regional language section. We can also allow Hindi in main board as it is our national language. But proper Hindi not phonetic. And it can also be translated to English to make things easier as not everyone has Hindi keyboard to reply in Hindi.

- Marketplace (India) : Since, the board is dedicated to India I hope dealing with currencies other than INR shouldn't be allowed. I have seen newbies posting stuffs like selling bitcoin for EUR, USD and other global currencies. What is the purpose of selling Bitcoin other than INR in an Indian board  Huh

Yes, I see no point in allowing people to post trade on Indian sub forum other than INR pair. If they wish to buy USD/EURO for BTC or vice versa, they can post that in main board's currency exchange section.

Tips are welcome! => 1bVp177vXRdbBUb9HXgP3odcdXBXdYr4z   <= BTC

I sincerely think the first and foremost thing is that theymos should appoint an Indian board moderator. It has been without one for very long, I remember Joel has asked for one looking long ago. I think Heisenberg should ask again, start a thread in meta on the issue.

Cause only then can we hope to bring better order to this place.
