Default The Team-Bhp Story

Boggles the mind when you think of it. Over 12,000 petrol-heads were online, at the same time, on Team-BHP this Monday. And while on the topic, here's another record : In the last month, 12,12879 unique visitors (that's over 12 lakh) made their way to read some topic or the other on our community.

To all those of you who have contributed to the Forum, a heartfelt Thank You!. It's you who has made Team-BHP the definitive resource on the Indian Car Scene. The most unbiased, as well as the most comprehensive....we must be doing something right

Thanks especially to the Mod Team - .Anshuman, Aah78, Ajmat, Amartya, Bblost, DerAlte, Dippy, Eddy, Flyingspur, Jaggu, Khan_Sultan, Mobike008, MPower, Navin, N_aditya, Rehaan, Rudra Sen, Samurai, Stratos, Technocrat, TheMAG, TSK1979, V12 and Zappo - for keeping our home clean. All of you together make a formidable team of Moderators; it's an honour to be a part of this group.

I guess we'll need to beef up our servers, yet again, in the near future.

Lines.
Lines can keep you in.
Lines can keep you out.
Some lines you don't understand...
Some lines you can erase.
Some, you cant.
Some lines you wait for.
And some lines, make you wait.
Lines can keep you live.
Lines are with you till the end...
But the only lines that matter...are the ones you make.
And the lines that we made.
And a never ending line made by 64,280 and growing members.
A line called the community of BHPians.
In other words, its the biggest community of BHPians on the biggest democracy on Earth. India.

Everyday. Many Roles. One Community.
Call it a community of mad fuelheads.
Or call it TEAM-BHP.

For life's winners, the real competition lies within.
The biggest challenge is to compete with one's own self, to strive for excellence even while being ahead of others.
To seek newer horizons, to raise the bar and achieve new benchmarks.
And enjoy every moment of this relentless quest to go beyond.

Its the circle of life.
A wheel of fortune.
A leap of faith.
This spirit of taking joy in meeting life's challenges and emerging victorious is the result behind the creation and evolution of a revolution called
Team-BHP - The Definitive Indian Car Community - Portal.

So when did you start to settle?
For potted plants in the window sill.
For a glimpse of the horizon behind the window blinds.
For theme parks and flavoured popcorn.
Worse still, when did you mistake it for the real thing?
Its time to listen when your heart murmurs its discontent.
Its time to get out there and live.
Its time to celebrate.
A result of 7 years of collective hard work and painstaking efforts of all the moderators and BHPians.
Proud to be part of this closely knit family.

ARE YOU?

Default re: Team-BHP turns 7 on Valentines Day!

Sid! Thank you for beating me to the birthday announcement by 4 hours . The celebrations just don't seem to stop, do they? After all, we've only recently celebrated 12,234 users online.

In the progression from a small community in one corner of the internet, to India's largest, I am especially proud of the fact that our core values & belief systems haven't changed. We're still a bunch of car-crazy petrolheads who strive to maintain the unbiased, all-encompassing nature of our cherished community. If anything, with our growth, our quality has only improved. Kudos & congratulations to all contributors.

A very Happy 7th Birthday to Team-BHP. This year has some very exciting developments in the pipeline; wait & watch.

Keep (high) revvin'

Default The Team-Bhp Story

Do you need more flexibility in compiling that really comprehensive car review, exotic travelogue, technical report, or any other thread with lots of text & pictures? We're going to give you just that!

About the Assembly Line section:

• Located as a sub-forum of Shifting Gears, here is a link to the Assembly Line forum. You must be logged in to be able to access.

• Take your own sweet time to format your thread, add text content, multiple attachments and back-to-back posts in a private forum.

• Only you (and the Team-BHP Moderators) can view your W-I-P thread. Compose in full privacy.

• Ability to EDIT your post over an indefinite period of time. Come back to add more attachments / content / posts to your work-in-progress thread after 4 hours, 4 days, 4 weeks or even later.

• Ability to delete your own posts (all, except the opening post). Simply click on the EDIT button and then Delete.

• Once your thread is complete, you may report the post (Report Posts : Contribute in Maintaining Team-BHP's post quality), and a Team-BHP Moderator will move your thread out to the public forum.

• After your thread has been taken public, you are permitted to bump it up once to bring it amongst the new post listings.

We hope you find this initiative helpful.

Thanks to all those of you who requested this feature in The Suggestions Thread (Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians).

Wanted to be on top of all those posts where you have been quoted?
Posted a question, and wary of missing the answers? Even if it's an older thread?
Want to ensure that the BHPian who you've quoted looks your post up?
Replied to a BHPian's query, yet unsure if he'll see your response?


No sweat

Introducing the "You've been quoted" enhancement on Team-BHP! Simply put, each time that you have been quoted, you will receive a notification PM of the same. With a direct link to the relevant post!

Screengrab:

Of course, you also have the option of switching this feature off. Head over to "Edit Options" within your User CP, and click the "No" radio button, under the "Receive a PM When Quoted" category.

NOTE:
  • Please use the Thanks button, instead of posting a one-liner for exactly the purpose. Going forward, all one-line Thank you posts will be treated as SPAM.
  • Every BHPian's "member profile page" allows you to search for his / her Thanked posts.
  • Guests have the ability to view the list of BHPians who have thanked a post.

Happy New Year BHPians!


The Team-BHP Gallery is the first of several amazing new features that Team-BHP has lined up for you in 2012.


We've got a whopping 6,00,000 (yes, thats 6-lakh) pictures in our collection, diligently uploaded by BHPians like you. Thanks!!.

What better way to drool over super-cars, get dirty off-roading, sneak a peek at scoops, feel nostalgic about vintages and travel the roads of India - than in an easy to browse visual format. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, and this community has a high quality discussion for each and every one of those pictures too.

See Team-BHP in a whole new way :

>> The Team-BHP Photo Gallery <<



Like it, share it and enjoy it!

Thanks,
Rehaan

Default The Team-Bhp Story

This day in 2004, 10 die-hard car enthusiasts came onboard Team-BHP to start its engine. Yep, Valentines day of '04 saw exactly 10 registrations to our community. The only thing that mattered to us was having a solid platform where we could share information on every aspect of the Indian Car space, and say it like it is. Some things, I guess, will never change.

We BHPians have come a long way in the 8 years since. 14.49 lakh visitors, predominantly from India, came to read what you shared on your Team-BHP in January 2012 alone. And without any active marketing or advertising at all, calendar year 2011 saw 1,42,77,567 visiting our home on the internet. That's 1.42 crore visitors reading what you had to say!

We're here to learn, we're here to share and we love to help; there are 25 lakh posts attesting to this fact. Each & every BHPian who has chipped in with even a single post has played his / her part in building this all-encompassing knowledge base. It's giving back to the Indian Car Scene that we so dearly love.

In an industry that takes orders from advertising rupees, here's to nobility. Team-BHP hasn't and will never run a car advertisement. The Moderator Team commits to things staying that way. Team-BHP has an identity that is too strong, a philosophy that is driven by ethic and a core that insists on the neutral, unbiased exchange of information. We hold our independent spirit close to our heart. Team-BHP prefers to continue driving on the "different" road, and serve only the Indian car owner & enthusiast.

Thanks to our 28 Pillars of support : the outstanding, incredibly talented and steadfast Moderator Team that takes Team-BHP to ever-rising heights. .Anshuman, Aah78, Ajmat, Amartya, Bblost, Benbsb29, DerAlte, Eddy, Jaggu, Karlosdeville, Khan_Sultan, Manson, Mobike008, MPower, Navin, N_aditya, Noopster, Rehaan, Rtech, Rudra Sen, Samurai, Stratos, Suhaas307, Technocrat, TheMAG, TSK1979, Vid6639 and Zappo : We owe you for all that you selflessly give to Team-BHP. Between the 7th birthday and today, you've ensured that our forum quality continues to set new benchmarks for communities. And the fresh initiatives, oh boy! The Team-BHP Android & Apple Apps, the Assembly Line (The "Assembly Line" Forum section), our Photo Gallery, Thank You function (The "Thank You" Feature of Team-BHP), the you've been quoted feature (You've been Quoted!) and more...it's only possible because of your indomitable support & love. Thank you guys! We've come some way for sure, yet there is a long, fast highway ahead for us to redline on.

Happy Birthday Team-BHP, and Keep Revvin'
