A few small enhancements will be made to the site in the coming days, regarding Member profiles. . 1. Hereafter, we shall require REAL permanent names of members. Members will have the option of reporting those whose name is fake or not real. An SW will be issued, whereupon the member will have to respond and provide their name. We do NOT check any further - NO aadhaar card, etc. We trust members to report and check each other. We just don't want duplicate IDs with fake permanent names. .... more...
2. Detailed Member profiles: a. Top 5 Trains you have travelled in, how often, etc. b. Top 5 Stations you know very well. These aspects will be used to direct user queries to the attn of the concerned member. . 3. Profile pics: Any valid train/personal pics is acceptable. . 4. Other optional details: Education, Work, interests (ONLY if you want to provide them). . 5. Check-in feature: If you use the Spotting feature and take snaps of the station on 5 different days, then you will be made "IRI Station Master". Thereafter, you will be an authority on all details about that station, including amenities, etc. . Feedback welcome. Thanks.
