Indeed a Good initiative.
Hereafter, all door plating pics and videos will be subject to deletion. Yes, many people do and will continue to take such dangerous videos for posting on YouTube, Instagram and other such apps. Such apps will never discourage this practice, as it is good for to their business. However, on this site and also the FmT app, we are now actively discouraging this practice. In the FmT app, there’s a prominent message making users aware of this and they have to explicitly agree to this condition before posting pics. Any future Unsafe videos/pics may be marked to FMs for deletion. Safely taken pics/videos through window, etc. are allowed. All safe pics are allowed.

Yes,

this will lead to loss of interest and disappointment, and members may leave the app/site. That’s fine.

This step is not expected to discourage this practice as users will continue to take dangerous pics/videos for their monetized YouTube channels and deaths/mishaps will continue to happen.

As far as this small site is concerned, we just wish to do our part with a clear conscience.

Thanks.

Since such pictures would be considered safe - no risk of falling, etc. - they would be allowed. This is just a measure to emphasize that yes, railfanning is a good hobby, but lives are much more important.

Hopefully, we can get to a point where we do continue to take pics, but very safely, and are also able to make the safe pics more interesting and popular through our own creativity, instead of risking our lives.
Thanks.

Sir, two humble site suggestions that was noticed in station forum page :
1. No. of originating/terminating trains count is not getting updated when new trains introduced e.g. Bijapur.
2. Some screen design to highlight the station amenities present in the station like retiring room, dormitories, escalators, medical check, refreshment room.
Upon clicking them , reviews related to them can be shown in expanded

Thanks in advance.

    As announced previously, there are a few changes coming to IRI user accounts, based on past practices. 1. As before, you will be able to quickly DELETE your IRI User account at ANY time. However, the menu option for this was hidden in the profile page, and could not easily be located....

    These days, every other day, we are getting requests from members to allow email login to their FB-based IRI account. 10 years ago, we had given the option for users to login through FaceBook - in retrospect, this was a mistake. These days, apparently, users are quitting FaceBook in droves because...

So all of these features will be REMOVED. We'll have ONLY BLOGGING - quick upload of pics/videos/audio, etc. You may attach...

    We are unifying the Bookmark scheme for Blogs & PNRs. Previously, we had different systems of "Followed Blogs", "PNR History", "My PNR Posts", "My PNR Post Predictions", "Stamp Alerts", etc. which were somewhat confusing. Hereafter: For PNRs: 1. You may add ANY PNR to your bookmarks through the "Add Bookmark" link in the...
