This is a new feature showing the full history of past edits to this Blog Post. All members will now be able to Edit and refine their past and future Blog Posts with NO time limit.
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.

#sitesuggestion
I had posted this earlier too |(#434435 and #449565), but since I'm still not getting a response from the Admins/Mods, I'm once again reposting this, as a private post to you after the suggestion of one of the members: Can we have the timetable for the next 24 hrs in the homepage instead of till midnight? In the present scenario, one has to wait till 12Am to see status of trains arriving between 12AM and 2AM. Its not possible to check status of trains arriving between 12 and 2 AM at, say 1130PM....

My error - it became an open post - but thanks to the Mod for finally replying. Will be awaiting this feature.
Can I also add another suggestion - many trains have time slot sharing with other trains, sometimes with more than one train during the entire course of its journey. Can we have a feature where we can easily spot/identify other trains which share its time slot, in various sections of IR?
