May be asking to mail a copy of bill/ transaction would solve this.

In turn, this will also promote buying stuff with bill and warranty - further adding our little share to the govt. revenues in terms of taxes

Feel free to use external hosting (imageshack) for putting pictures in your PMs (only).

Hi Cyrus,

Please reload(switch) the skin and try again.

What browser are you using - i have not been able to replicate the problem in Opera, IE6 or FF2.

One small thing. Can we have this --> smiley on the main reply page. Its used pretty frequently (at least by me) and would be nice if I don't have to click on the "More" link, open a new page and then select the smiley.

This one ()can be moved since I have seen it being used rarely

I was just searching for BMW M5 and it wouldn't let me because of the "M5" was shorter then the minimum number of letters per word. Can that be changed?

I dont know if other people are having this problem, but i am. Since yesterday, whenever i am on the forum, there have been constant SpyWare alerts popping up. It happens only on team-bhp. No other website has this problem. Also, the moment i shut the page, the alerts dissappear....and come back when i reopen the page. Can someone look into it or should I ignore it???

I face similar issues too at times. Although Rush has suggested a workaround using Google to search the forum, it would be good if the search can be improved further.

I think the issue is caused due to flash ads. I had the same experience in FF2.xx version. It covered the quick search box. Had to go to advanced search

GTO, Rehaan : Were are updates carried out on the Garage section? Earlier, when we used to click on a snap in someone's Gallery, it used to open up with a very nice interface with black borders, and a button to move to the next pic. This morning, i observed its no longer there.

EDIT : Looks like a one-off problem, seems to be fine now.

Is there a provision to rate a particular post in a thread as excellent? I know that we can rate the threads. But sometimes even though the thread is average, there is a particular post or 2 which stands out and makes a significant contribution.

Pls ignore if this has been discussed already.

Default identify subscribed threads?

Hi,

Is there any way to identify the subscribed threads, say from the list you get when you list threads with the new posts? It will be good to have that.

Also the starting the date of the thread if visible in the list would be helpful.

This will be convinient.

Has anybody else noticed this with the HP ad : the ad covers the left half of the search dialog box.
@Rehaan, have tried switching the skins, but this still happens. Is it the HP ad ? The Intel ad looks fine.

Or maybe I should ask Ajmat about this ! lol
