Default T-bhp : Five years from now !

Guys, where do we see T- bhp five years from now ?

I could think of a 24 hour Tbhp TV Channel - news, reports, travellogues.. the works..
or, a FM channel ?

How would the forum be ? Members..1 lakh? How would we communicate with each other ?

cannot stop dreaming..

your ideas ?

Lovely enthusiasm! In 5 years, Team-BHP will continue to be on the sharp end of the grid for Indian automotive communities, and the possibilities are endless. Keep the thoughts coming!

I forsee TBHP getting into the must-refer books of all car manufacturers, and also being widely acknowledged by dealers, as well as accessory shops.

Membership should however be scrutnized.

I just hope that it doesn't become too commercial a site with hundreds of google ads on a page.

The membership will be in lakhs so it will need more stringent moderation.

Because of the growing numbers, it is probable that there would be less personal interaction across the board. However, there may be more sub-groups with more personal chit chat.

Last but not the least, Rtech will still be missed. :(

no offense, but do you work for TCS or did you attend an interview with them in the recent past.

By then there would be some of our own Tiff Needels and Jeremy Clarksons, who would be provided the latest models to test drive and put their reviews and judgement on the site. Like JD Power now, people would refer to the Team bhp reviews and polls as the most reliable base for judging performance.

I see myself as a T-Bhp moderator 5 yrs from now. ;-)

Would love to see a t-bhp magazine. One every quarter or just one every year.

T-BHP awards for best car in various segments and other interesting awards like most customer oriented automobile company, best car to modify, cheapest car to maintain etc. Only awards given by a Non profit, non commercial based company/site/organization whatever. That would be cool.

Just think about teambhp having its own magazine and then the TV channel. Man i would not hesitate to join full time contributing my own (moderators are you listening )

Honestly Magazine first and then a Channel should be on the cards for sure.

Anyway during my college days i struggled to get into the automobile stream but could not. Now after five more years in T-BHP, I can claim equivalent to PHD in Automobiles (maybe PHD is too much, but i will be certainly more knowledgeable).. I claim because I am religiously following the threads of my interest (under, inside and above the car)

love to get hold of my degree...

Regarding TBHP itself ..... needless to say it will be the best Online-Automotive-Engineering-University. Who knows my degree here will be valued as from a esteem university

I think GTO would be in the best position to answer this.

They did not like mine, I did not like theirs.

5 years from now, I will still be Team-BHP's official story-teller. That will not change.
