      Closing Vendors Only section   06/11/2017

      The Vendors Only section on IVG was started at a time when games retail and e-commerce were pretty much non-existent in India. But with the growing popularity of e-commerce players like Amazon and Flipkart and specialist retailers like Games the Shop, we don't feel a section like this serves much purpose anymore. And even small and new businesses now have easy access to payment gateways and social media to promote their businesses. We've also been noticing a lack of activity in the section over the last year or too. That's not even taking into consideration all the times we've allowed access to vendors who either don't stay in business long enough, or use IVG to commit fraud and cheat members.   So in view of the above, we've decided to close the Vendors Only section from June 30. Starting July, the section will be removed, along with all the threads and posts within it. All users currently part of the IVG Authorised Vendor group, will be moved to the Members group.   That brings us to the topic of how to approach/deal with businesses on IVG.   IVG was started as a community that is for gamers first, so we don't want to see the forums flooded with retailers, rental services, etc using this community for free advertising. So as things stand, retailers will not be allowed to sell their products or promote their businesses on IVG.   Members who come across useful services or retailers that the rest of IVG ought to know about can use the Game Deals section to start a discussion, but this is not to be used by businesses themselves. IVG Staff will close any topics that come across as advertising.   If any would like to use the forums to talk about their business, they would need permission from admins first (you can write to staff via the Contact Us link at the bottom of the forums).

You can use Caps lock at the right places.

 

When you use caps in general talk that means you are yelling at people.

fine now i have pmed the mods and yet i dint get any reply so I am posting here ..

Whats the purpose of following these rules when any random mod can ban you for any random reason.. yesterday some ppl were banned from shout coz flaming some member .. ok thats fine they were being rude , lesson taught now few of them banned again today for no reason .Now you must be wondering why I am posting here .. because I was also banned today from shout because I posted some Gifs in shout .. I dont see that posted here as a rule .. infact many ppl use image tag and post smilies(gif) from other sites so technically they are also doing same thing ..

@gi staff :atleast follow some rules urself when u expect us to follow them ..

dont know why u have been banned over here, so cant comment on it...........

but for others i can say tht, every thing cannot be written down in black and white , there cannot be rules written for showing disrespecting other members and bullying as the inherent nature is not properly defined itself, members should use some basic sense of courtesy and respect when talking to other members and more so if the other member is a lady.

I don't know about the incident, but like GS said, not everything can be written down here. Some of it is implied. As for why you were banned, let the mod that banned you respond to your query.

 

I find it very hard to believe that you're so oblivious to the fact that we don't allow gifs to be posted on shout. It must have been your first time on shout. And nice job bringing up smileys to prove your point
