An outline 

Club Mahindra presents the community portal as a place where you can share your stories, experiences and expertise with other club members. By doing this, we want your holiday experiences and interactions to be inspiring and enjoyable.

General:

1. Honesty – All reviews and posts by members must be honest (including images and videos). Copying other reviews and posting on the community is not acceptable. Misleading stories or information will be moderated.

2. Parental guidance: If you are one of our young members under 18 and have parents as members, you will need your parent’s permission before writing a travel diary.


3. Code of Conduct – Members must keep in mind that the Community page is a platform where all the Club Mahindra members, both old and new, can bond and reach out to one another. Thus, any use of foul language, abuses and obscene comments etc. will not be appreciated.


4. Relevance and Spam – All posts on the community must be relevant so that it is helpful to other members of the community and helps build Club Mahindra. Members must refrain from posting other articles or links to articles that do not concern the portal. Members must avoid posting repetitive messages on Club Talk and the community in general, as this will be regarded as spam and strict action will be taken against such behaviour.

5. We invite you to write about a specific problem or something that requires our reply. Do give us 2 working days to get back to you. Rest assured, we have noted your query and will get back to you at the earliest. We request you to not post the same query on multiple threads and discussions. Our Admin will use their discretion to act upon such behaviour.

6. Be respectful: Rich debate is wonderful, and we encourage you to indulge in the same without being offensive, humiliating or intimidating. We have members from all parts of India with different cultures, following different traditions and beliefs.

As a community, we respect different points of view, journeys, budgets and backgrounds and we urge you to do the same. Please do not take anything personally.

7. No Trolling – Trolls and trolling must be avoided and reported so that Club Mahindra can take necessary action.

8. Non-Commercial – The Community is a platform for members to share their stories and experiences, thus members must refrain from posting links, images, videos or content promoting their own business or service

9. Any feedback, opinions or points of view that you have about the community, are welcome. We would love to hear your thoughts on our services. Anything constructive, or suggestions to improve can be sent to us and our moderators will act on it as soon as possible.

10. The opinions, views and experiences expressed in the content posts are of the members and Club Mahindra takes no responsibility for the same.

Club Talk Guidelines

If you have a question about a particular resort, visit the ‘Club Talk’ section for that particular resort to ask your question.


Avoid duplication, members must first search their concerns on the Club Talk page before starting a thread to avoid any duplication.


Also, members must refrain from posting the same matter multiple times with different images and videos.


Your thread’s title should be clear, informative, and related to the content of your thread.


If you accidentally post in the wrong sub-club talk, ask our moderators to move the thread.


Deleting posts: We don’t allow members to delete a post once it has a response.


Deleting threads: You can delete a ‘reply’ in a thread as long as it does not have a reply chain.
