Whats NEW on Team-BHP?
So whats new on Team-BHP? Our software / hardware upgrades have logically provided a safer, faster and more reliable platform. But there’s also the following new value-adding features now:
• Ignore Forums from “New Posts” Search
You now have the ability to exclude a particular forum (which is not of your interest) from the “New Posts” search. To activate this facility, simply go over to your “User CP” followed by “Edit Options”. Scroll to the bottom of the page and you will see the list of forums. A shortcut to that page is here.
• PM on Moderation
You will receive an automated PM at any time that your post / thread is moderated (move/delete/edit etc.). This will serve as a notification from the Team-BHP Support staff.
• Boolean Search
Our search function just got better! You can now search for “Tyre and Honda” instead of just one of the two. Therefore, if you are looking for tyres for your Honda, you can simply use Boolean by typing the previously mentioned phrase. On a relevant note, you can now also choose to view search results as posts / threads without going to the advanced search screen.
• Multi-Quoting Posts
The multi-quote feature allows you to tag multiple posts that you wish to respond to by clicking a small button on each post. Once you click the reply button, each tagged post is quoted. You may use upto three quotes per post.
• Quote Tags Link to Quoted Post
When quoting a certain post, the ID of the post is automatically included with the [quote] tag. When the quoted text is viewed in a thread, a small icon links back to the quoted post.
• Ability to email users.
To solve the problem of PMs not reaching full inboxes, we have enabled the “Send email to user” link. Simply go to a users profile and follow the link. The email address will NOT be visible to you, but you can make use of the provided form. However, if the user has specified that he / she does not wish to receive emails from Team-BHP you will not be able to perform this task.
• Member Infraction System
A comprehensive warning system that notifies users of warnings / infractions against defaulting posts. Please view this thread for more information.
• Better AJAX.
AJAX technology allows you to send and receive information on the web, without the page reloading. Team-BHP has a lot of AJAX features which help you (and the moderators) in various functions. For e.g., if you reply to a thread using the “quick reply” box at the bottom of every thread, your reply will be posted without the entire page reloading.
• Default Thread Sorting Option per Forum
You can choose how threads will be sorted on a per forum basis. Options include the field and direction to sort using.
• Subscribe & unsubscribe to Threads / Forums.
If you wish to follow a certain thread / forum, simply click Thread / Forum tools and click subscribe. You will also have a chance to choose the frequency of email subscriptions.
• Thread preview on mouse-over
When viewing a forum, or a list of threads, take your mouse over the thread title. You will see a short preview of the thread content.
• Members list is back!
The much requested “Members list” has been activated again. However, some 2004 members (who have not yet confirmed their membership via email) are not present on the list.
• Full BCC Support in Private Messages
Like in an email, BCC (blind carbon-copy) allows you to hide the full list of recipients from each recipient. In previous versions of Team-BHP, the “to” field acted like a BCC field. Now, the “to” field acts like the field in an email; each recipient will see all the names in the “to” field but not in the “bcc” field.
• Old Introductions will automatically close after 14 days.
Again, something that was much requested. Introductions will automatically close within 30 days of creation.

Hey this is great
Getting T-BHP back online is like getting one's addiction fix back! You dont realise how dependant you are on it till it is taken away from you.
Great job guys. these improvements look really nice and will surely make T-BHP an even more interesting community.

"http://www.[url]http.com//www.team-bhp.com/forum/announcements/19038-team-bhp-warning-infraction-system.html%5B/url%5D" that link format ..(typo?) is wrong.
and that "view my p g " is good
Edit from Mod - I have edited the link. Thanks for mentioning it.
