Guidelines regarding choosing Category of a new Blog Entry:
When composing a post, you see the Category list. If you have a choice between 2 or more categories, choose the Category that is the LOWEST in the list and fits this blog.
For example, if you are relating a personal anecdote about a certain rail journey, this post falls both within "Rail/Travel" and "Rail Anecdotes". Choose "Rail Anecdotes", since it appears LOWER than "Rail/Travel" in the Categories list.
Similarly,

an entry congratulating a member on achieving a certain number of PNR predictions fits both "Site-Related" and "Congratulations/Greetings" categories. In this case, choose "Congratulations/Greetings" since it appears LOWER in the list.
Since "Rail/Travel" is highest in the list, this category should be selected ONLY if the post does NOT fit any other category in the list.
Reason:
The new Blog Categories have been created with the explicit purpose that anyone who unchecks a specific category does NOT receive notifications and does NOT see posts falling in that category.
For example, if a member does not wish to see "Congratulations" posts, he/she will get irritated if this post has been labeled "Site-Related" and he is being notified about it (even though the congratulations are site-related).
The above guideline will ensure that members do not receive unnecessary notifications and get annoyed.
Thanks.

The modification is not enabled to give everyone time to understand the Categories, especially which category to choose if more than 2 categories fit the Blog. Once everyone has read this post, and is clear on the guidelines, it will be enabled.
Thanks.

    There has recently been a lot of frustration among RFs when their Station Pics, Loco Pics, Train Pics get rejected because the "number is not showing", "shed is not visible", the loco/train is at a distance, Train Board is too small, "better pic available", etc. . To address this issue, effective tomorrow, ALL...

    A minor update, but may impact many members: Hereafter, FMs will be able to delete invalid Red Flags on Imaginary trains. Red Flags can be removed by FMs, only against specific complaints filed against the blog. This does not give all members the right to complain against EVERY single red flag they...

    -@all members: As of recently, there has been a trend whereby minor name updates of Trains/Stations - whether such and such regional name should be there or not, whether the train should be called "Abc Express" or "Abc Superfast Express", etc. are threatening to take over the majority of Timeline entries. Also,...

    It has been over 2 weeks since the appointment of the current batch of FMs and 750 Complaints have been handled so far. It gives me immense pleasure in congratulating them for running the team diligently, professionally, competently and above all, without a shred of controversy or bias. The FM position...
