The real reason is slightly technical - when you joined IREF, you searched something in Google and landed on the site. Google, mind you, is an English language search engine - it cannot read or understand or index pages in Hindi. Since IREF gets a lot of traffic from Google searches, it is necessary for IREF to be English only - so that more of its content gets indexed on Google and more people come to this site and become contributing members.

Compare apples with apples, when you can. Why search a saas bahu serial when you can do this comparison - "Main Noida me ghar dhund raha hoon" vs. "I am looking for a house in Noida".

Well guys, let me chime in here.

When members join IREF if it obvious and clear we are an English forum. Everything on this site that IS the site and not a post, is English. Every post admin make are in English. The rules members agree to are in English, and those very rules spell out that this is an "English Only" forum.

There are probably a number of reasons while this rule is in place, and it has been in place since before I came on board - but I will say a couple things.

Yes, for one of us (me) English is much easier to read through. So in my case it is needed for me to be effective in ensuring posts meet standards and rules and to filter out junk and spam. If we quickly ensure posts are to standard, the quality of our service drops.

Outside of that, though, I think it's important that everyone be able to understand everything. Everyone here understands English, but not otherwise. For various reasons, that point should be held. Have you ever been in a room talking with people, then suddenly two people next to you start to whisper in another language?

It's a fair enough rule to have in place, it's justified well enough, and is clear from the beginning (on signup) that this is how we operate. So, I see no harm in enforcing it. Though, as IGRM has said, no one to date has been punished for it.

Our Admins and moderators are not here to cast blame or choose sides. We can't be expected to research the pros and cons of your personal arguments with one another. We prefer that forum reputation be based on your commentary and dialogue on the issues of importance to all of us.


Off Topic
Please make every effort to keep your posts relevant to the active thread topic. Detours usually take a thread wildly off topic, and invite others to do the same. Off topic posts (and any responses to such posts) may be deleted without notice.


Trolling
Constant harassment of a member, or repeated off-topic and/or rude posts in a thread is not permitted.
Okay, got the message...(if you're referring to my post)

BTW, should the forum not have rules for deleting the posts because the writing is so bad that the report is nearly impossible to comprehend ?
Why do you allow the text containing so many misspelled words, grammar errors and local slangs that it becomes literally unreadable? ‘Monlal’ posts are so bad that the only way I can describe them is that it looks like English translated into Hindi and then translated back to English and he doesn’t follow grammar of either of these two languages.
Isn’t this Forum is an English-only website. Contributions should be encouraged from all volunteers and a bit of text containing Hindi words written in English alphabets is fine. But the general rule should be to post in ‘English’ following grammar rules (at least 90%) and proof-checked for spelling errors and typos.
I’ve sought help on possibilities if I can choose not to see posts from ‘Monlal’. I got no reply.
Look forward to hear from you…

My post is not meant specifically/only for your posts . It is meant for all those who are ignoring the rules .



Yes, IREF is an English-only forum . All content posted in publicly viewable areas of the forum must be written in English . Any News articles being published in Hindi & getting posted are an exception .

A few members are using “Hindi’ and ‘Hinglish’ on the forum. They need to limit its use as we would like to maintain a consistent language across our board .

On the issue of grammatical mistakes/misspelled words/local slang, people from different backgrounds, different educational/financial levels are here in the forum, so it is really not possible to control & edit all such grammatical mistakes, though as i said earlier, use of Hinglish needs to be minimal .

I am forwarding your comment/suggestion to Admin. & lets see what they can do about it .
