I think Team BHP should make seperate sticker sets for approved members, and not sell them openly to all.

IMO one set should be made for readers and a special set, with either the User ID or Profile number (similar ID) mentioned in a strip above the current set of stickers. Another option is to give 3 rectangular pieces of stickers (with thier Team BHP ID/Profile No. mentioned) to be pasted above the current sticker set.

This way we can differentiate real BHPians from regular folks. I have encountered many cars (and many = 50+) in the past one year of driving, driven rashly and creating a bad impression of Team BHP. Infact, I doubt even 5 of those 50 would have been real members.

So have I. The one I most distinctly remember was a couple of months ago on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway (when I didn't have membership myself). This guy in a white Swift with almost black tinted windows and a LTD sticker, was driving like an absolute psychopath and being a risk to everyone else around. My first reaction was like, "oh wow is he really a member?!".

I wish there was a way to report such reckless drivers to cops on patrol (I guess we can by dialing 100? But I'm not sure how bothered the cops are as far as reckless driving is concerned)

The maximum sightings seem to be from karnataka primarily Bangalore. Either the city has maximum number of BHPians or the most active members.

More than passive members I would expect most to be non members. It should be the prerogative of members to not distribute it to any and everybody (read stickers on walls etc.)

Got my set of thirteen and loving it.
On the downside, I have lost interest in sticking the LTD's anytime soon as I see tons of fakes plying around - from bikes to auto rickshaws here in my district. These reproductions are mostly smaller and come in duller shades of yellow.

- Same scene at your place too ?

- Will it be a good idea for the forum to change/complicate/register the design only to make it harder to duplicate ?

I agree completely. Great Idea with Profile ID's. It would also help Sighters identify the handle of the member after taking the pic

I am in advertising and have some experience with design. I can volunteer to come up with some fresh designs and ideas for the stickers for the registered community of members.

1. Silver Swift with Gbhp? and reg no MH43R****, you took left towards Thane
2. Silver/white Micra MH01BB****, you took right towards Ghatkopar

Any takers?

I am in advertising and have some experience with design. I can volunteer to come up with some fresh designs and ideas for the stickers for the registered community of members.
Something like a rectangular strip (2cmx10cm approx size) with the username (or profile #) printed on it should be given FOC (maybe) to BHPians and Seniors, depending on the number of vehicles in their garage, 2 for each vehicle.
They can stick it just above the normal sticker set. It would be very beneficial for both forum members and readers.

1. Help in distinguishing true BHPians from regular readers. In fact, one can know exact username and details of the member through his car.

2. Better and sane driving by members. As their usernames are visible and they are representing the community, they are likely to show better road behaviour. Chances of assuming rash drivers as true BHPians will be less, as some non-members have been caught driving badly on roads with stickers on their rides.

3. More memberships. As this sticker set would be exclusive for true members of the forum, non-members or readers would be more than happy to apply for getting themselves registered.

4. Lesser chances of non-enthusiasts sporting stickers as a member will not be willing to give his exclusive sticker to friends or family. Currently one will have no problem in sharing the stickers as it doesn't reveal any information about the lender.

Different colour themes for the rectangular sticker I was talking about can also help. Newbies can have Grey background with White font, BHPians can have Blue background with White font and Seniors can have Orange background with White font. Distinguished members and Moderators can have a chess board like theme - with their IDs mentioned in Orange. I mean, it would be fun to design and use as well. There are a lot of possibilities.

You should PM moderators about your willingness to contribute to sticker designs and ideas. I hope there would be a thread for this topic also.
