I don't like this feature.
The following changes are being introduced to keep the PNR Forum functioning.
1. A "bookmarklet" called "PNR Refresh" has been created. Just Copy/Paste a small piece of text into your browser bookmarks. The bookmarklet will be available by morning.
When you click on Post/Update/Refresh PNR, you will be taken to the Official page with the PNR field filled in.
3. Enter the captcha to get to the PNR Status page on the Official Site.
4. Just click on the "PNR Refresh" bookmark to post the PNR Status directly to IRI. When you click on the "PNR Refresh" bookmarklet in the Official PNR Results page, your info will be posted to IRI, and you will be taken to the PNR Entry in IRI.
This procedure, although extremely cumbersome, will allow the PNR Forum to keep operating. Sorry for the hardship. We are left with no other choice.
The following policy changes are being implemented in keeping with the above.
1. ALL PNR Numbers and ALL details will be visible to ALL members.
2. All PNRs posted in IRI will remain anonymized like before, i.e., you will NOT be able to tell which PNR belongs to which member. In other words, all PNR info will be visible, but PNR Privacy will be maintained.
ALL members/guests will be able Post/Refresh PNRs using the above procedure. The "PNR Refresh" bookmark will be available by morning.
In the long-term, we wish to continue nurturing the great rail community and friendships we have. Towards this goal, more and more info will be sourced DIRECTLY from members. Indeed, our members have far more information than the official sources.
Also, the site will move and diversify into other avenues and interests. We are all RailFans, no doubt. But we are ALSO well-rounded individuals with many OTHER interests. The site/apps will move to further develop other intellectual interests and pursuits of our members as well.
Thanks to all members for their vote of confidence in the site. So long as our community is interested and enthusiastic, we shall work hard to nurture and grow it. The New Year started with a very RUDE and cold-hearted awakening, but we shall endeavour to make something good out of it.

    @all: Regarding the new SCoR zone, our VSKP and other SCoR members are excited and interested to change the train/station zones. We may let them go ahead with it. This piece of info is NOT critical for trains and TTs which would affect regular passengers - so it's FINE. . We may let them...

    @all: This is a repeat warning to all that: Anonymous posting may NOT be used to directly address regular members -> like scolding them, commenting about their blogging habits, arguing with them, or ANY other personal comment/remark against any other member, EVEN if it is not offensive.

    @all: This is to formally announce the END of the RailCal app. Due to the information blockade, the app has lost its value, and has been rendered completely useless. We are unable to support RailCal anymore. Sorry to disappoint our users. . RailCal has already been taken off the Google PlayStore. So once...
