Though our moderators have said in the past about dispatching stickers as small batch size, I feel we should find a solution. The reason why I am saying is, I have seen two guys who are not members of the forum but their cars have Team-BHP stickers. They did not tell me the souce but hinted that some one ordered and got ten stickers. The person who ordered used one or two and remaining he distributed among friends/relatives. Though the practice is ok as per Team-BHP guidelines, I feel the stickers should be member's identity.

Here are my suggestions.

- Reduce the lot size from 10 to 5 or 2.
- The available 10 nos set of stickers can be divided in to two or three sets and sell them seperately.
- If segregation is a labarious job, we can do this activity during a next meet up or get together..:-) or we can even meet once for this activity.


I tried to go through the pages to find out whether some one has already suggested this, but could not succeed as the page count is already 1280+.

Mumbai spotting: spotted this bhpian on the Eastern express highway a couple of minutes back near Somaiya ground In his Santro . Must say the placement of the stickers on the hood and front left door were unique

And while I was taking this snap another bhpian zoomed past in his black alto which has LTD sticker on the right side of the rear bumper and redlining sticker on the left side of the rear bumper.

Bhpians who are you ?

I spot this i20 very regularly at Mahavir Nagar Kandivali (W).
White i20 with black flame type vinyls on the side, blue headlights and drls in the front bumper. Also has a spoiler. There are many team-bhp stickers on the car.
Who are you bhpian?

I tried to go through the pages to find out whether some one has already suggested this, but could not succeed as the page count is already 1280+.

The best and only way I can see to avoid non-members getting a hand on the bhp stickers is to sell it only to members. Team-bhp store should be available to only those who can log in to the site and not be open to everybody.

This may still lead to people sharing the stickers, but the count of fake bhpians using the stickers could come down by a huge margin.

Not sure if somebody has already suggested this.

Please explain to me what a 'fake' bhpian is.

Why do we have to be a close knit community? It took multiple attempts for a few folks to join the forum. Speaks volumes of our quality standards.

Maybe some people do not qualify and hence can't be one of us. But they are fans so why can't they sport stickers? You don't have to be Rooney to sport a Man-U sticker.

I am sure 60% of clicks on this web forum are from non members.

They might not be BHPians but that doesn't mean they don't love their machines.

Sorry for interrupting, couldn't resist.
To me, whoever doesn't follow street/ Tbhp/ social norms and rules is a 'fake' Bhpian. He may be a member or not, to me he is definitely not a Bhpian.
That said, members should exercise caution while passing on the stickers, as they represent us and should always give right signal.
Maybe one or two training sessions would suffice. I am sure after the sessions, only true material would remain interested.
Cheers,
Abhijeet.
