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.
12)
...

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.
17)
...
more...
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.

    There are some changes to the Notification scheme. Previously, we had a "Notification Filter" in User Settings. But there was some confusion about this, as it was only used to HIDE blogs inside the Main Forum, mostly to filter out Race Blogs & Social/Congratulations blogs. . Meanwhile, as the site has evolved, there...

    Today, we have implemented a new experimental feature called "RailFan Clubs". Some notes: 1. The purpose of this feature is to encourage RailFan meets at local stations, and to enjoy a shared interest in our hobbies/passions.

    A new feature has been rolled out - "Blog-based ChatRooms". . Previously, we had one-on-one private Chat feature, which was not very successful.

    It has come to our attention that several IRI members have been causing mischief on other social media sites, distressing our regular loyal members. . They have been seen to post confidential and sensitive Govt. information on IRI, and thereafter themselves have been complaining to the Ministry that, "Such RailFan sites are openly running...
