Blog Updates:
The following changes have been made.
1. Paging Button in the Blog & PNR subtabs within the individual Train pages. Previously, only the top 25 Blog Entries were accessible within each Train page. Now, all Train-specific Blog Entries will be accessible.
2. New Blog & PNR subtabs within the individual ΣChain pages. The Blog subtab contains discussions specific to that ΣChain. The
PNR subtab shows all PNRs for any of the trains that are part of the ΣChain.
3. Separate Blog subtab within the individual Station pages. All blogs specific to that Station will now be accessible from within the Station page. Also, a new "Post Blog" link has been added at the top of the station Page. You can now discuss the station, as well as post pictures/videos right from within the Station page.(see pic)
More subtabs will be added soon to the Station page - station amenities, number of platforms, accommodations/hotels/restaurants in the vicinity, taxi/auto details, etc.

9) Member/Chain Statistics may be displayed against chain searches/individual chain page. This would help people judge the authenticity of the chain based on the experience of the creator.
10) Facility to create test chains to help bloggers test various train combinations before "Publishing" a Chain.
11) Facility to choose trains (Starting/Intermediate/Terminating) sharing same time slot on different days. This would help to decrease the existing number of chains.
For station combinations having direct train facility, a comparative map may be displayed to show the route taken by the direct chain (Shortest route out of the existing train/s, if any) and the chain in discussion.
13) For an existing chain, which starts from A to go till E; if the transit station is selected as C, user may be given the option to check for the distance/time against some intermediate station falling in the path of the chain; say B and/or D.
14) It may so happen that if a train is selected to go from A-B, booking for the same may not be possible in reality due to distance restriction. Hence whenever a chain is created, the system should check whether booking for the same is actually possible in reality/Check for the fare in the official website.

Some more:
15) Chains should be displayed in the main station page just like Arrivals/Departures.
16) Also, if you could introduce the running trains as against a station. (Not stopping at that station).
A separate filter for the same (Show Stopping/Passing By/All) may be introduced to avoid inconvenience to other bloggers.
Option to change either of the station/s while making a search.
For ex:- I am searching fro HWH-CSTM.
Then, I intend to search for BBS-CSTM. It is quite tedious to type both the station codes/names and then click on search. Hence option to change just one of the station should be present.
18) Slip trains also appears against ME/SF Tab. They needs to be separated.

19) Final Status should be displayed in the colour same as the stamp.
For ex:- Right now Confirmed and RAC Status are marked by Green, WL and Void by light orange. However the colour of the final stamps are different. Sometimes it creates a bit of confusion while putting the stamps.
Keeping the colour same would make it easier for admins to put the stamps.

    The modification to the TL Update scheme - i.e. the introduction of the new RAC System - has led to some efficiency with TL Updates. More TLs are being discussed, and quickly moved up.

    Often we have some TL Entries seemingly in WaitList forever. Usually, the reason for this is that TLMs have already looked at the TL Entry but are not confident enough to Confirm it or are looking for more inputs from the Member regarding the source, etc. And this delay eventually causes...

    This is to address persistent and lingering questions about FM Appointments: . 1. Being an FM is a service. It is NOT supposed to be some kind of "reward" or "medal" to "deserving" members. The ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE of the process is to promptly handle/look into Reports filed by members, which is expected to...
