GTO,
Here are may suggestions:

1. Have a moderator to moderate newbie's posts across the other part of the globe too.... It helps in newbie's posts getting on the board real quick.
U know, now, If a Newbie in USA is posting during Indian midnight, that post will get posted only during Indian morning.

2. We need to provide the path (Hierarchy quick link of th website) even on the bottom of the pages.
Example : We are on a travelogue page. We read through from Top to bottom. Once you are at the bottom of the page, u need a way to go back to exit to the upper hierarchy of the page, u need the marked link to be at the bottom of the page too....
See this snapshot. Have this marked link at the bottom of the page too. Helps!

We have always had at least two mods in USA for years.

Samurai!
This was purely my observation, from the time i came to Bellevue (USA), from August 24rth. My posts get posted after moderation only after Indian Sun rise
If it happens quickly thru the US mods, i dont have complaints at all
Thanks for ur response.
Btw, congratulate me... this is my first Un-moderated post... uh hooo!!

Hi Surprise, great suggestion. We have made a note of this for our next round of upgrades.

Please use the "Forum Jump" Menu. It serves exactly the purpose (or close).

Reporting the post to a moderator is the only way to make such requests. However, reporting a post doesn't guarantee action. Only if the mod team sees a need to intervene / make corrections will any action be taken.

Can we have an option to voluntarily send a post to the moderators for approval before it appears in the forum. Many a times, particularly while creating new threads one is uncertain weather or not a post deems a new thread - it can possibly be part of another thread. In those instances if there is an option to proactively seek moderators involvement i think it'll help everybody.

Also, Google's SMS channels can be used effectively during meet-ups and for group communication

Pramod, when a post is waiting for approval the message goes out to the entire support team. Whomever is the quickest to respond can approve the post. That is how the forum software works. Team-BHP internal rules might allow only senior mods to approve posts, so that is why you see delays. As it is, the best way out is to have more than 50 posts

Again, mod action is dependant on our judgement. However, rest assured, EACH reported post is looked into by more than one moderator.

Sure, feel free to use the "contact us" form to get an opinion. Replies are sent out generally over weekends.

Guys, do keep in mind that weekends might slow things down a bit as well. Remember, mods have social lives too

Ankit - your report post was acted upon a few hours back.

this is an earnest request to all, pls introduce some more skins. i am tired of using the standard blue and red and the other two are not to my liking at all. pls something more spunkier but not dark.

Thanks

Any skin but only with a white background will do for me. Please do not remove the standard red, EVER.

Pardon me if this has been posted earlier, but it would be great if the smileys can be hidden and accessed after clicking on a link.

This makes posting in office a lot easlier without having to continuously wring your neck trying to see who's watching and being cautious (there are only around 6 people sitting around me)
