How to participate in this community

This topic and wiki post helps you find your way around IZ. We will keep updating to let you know how to use our forums.

Liking posts

Give a like :hearts: whenever you appreciate someone’s post, agree with their ideas or want to support their work. Likes spread love and hapiness in our community. And encourage others when they are posting something nice. It is also a way of earning trust and reputation in our community.

How to unsubscribe from some forums?

At IZ, you may be interested only in following a few forums of your choice and interest. And it may feel cluttered and confusing if posts from other forums crowd your page and draw your attention. Keeping this in mind, we let you mute forums that you are not interested.

  • Go to http://www.indian.zone/categories
  • Click on any forum that you would like to unsubscribe from
  • Choose Mute as shown in the image below (here we are trying to unsubscribe from Cricket Lounge forum and all topics posted within that
  • You may also choose the other options listed, helping you control how much of each forum you would like to see

Following your interests

Forums and Subjects categorize topics here at IZ. Staff level members create both forums and subjects as needed (Yes, you can be a staff-level member too with enough participation). And all members can choose their forum and subjects while posting. As well as ‘mute’ subjects they are not interested in while ‘watching’ subjects that they are keenly interested. Watching or muting can be done by going into any subject and choosing your preference as shown in the image above for ‘How to unsubscribe from forums’.
