I have been having this issue since a couple of days now. Everytime I visit the classifieds section it logs me out. I have to log in again, if I click on anything including new posts I have to log in again.

Thumbs up How about a newsletter!

Every news of the automotive scene unbaised hits Team-BHP first.
So,
How about a Team-BHP monthly magazine in E-book format ?
which will show all the news of the month, at the end in a better organised package.

We can have sections like members speak, long term reviews etc.
and then car reviews that will make a great read !

I will help in any and every way possible

Hi John, the VCCI section has been placed under the "Indian car scene" and hence must hold information relevant to India only. Ditto with supercar spottings in India as well.

!. Introduce a new Sub forum under BHP World Wide, "Vintage Cars and Classics International" or
2. Introduce under Pre-1950 and Post-1950 a new sub forum "International".
Once a certain volume of int'l vintage car information has been archived, we will certainly consider this. At the time being, however, we are extremely finicky about adding yet more forum sections.

Thanks for the headsup. This issue has been sorted. It had affected TSK's thread, in addition to some other older discussions. No problems now.

Rahul, many thanks for the fantastic suggestion. We have initiated discussions on how to go about implementing this.

Not sure if its suggested before, but anyway, Banner of the month.
For some of us who are good at graphics we can give back by designing a simple good looking banner.

This will be for forums, not the site.

This could keep things fresh and isn't change always good?

Could be a new banner for every quarter of the year based on the new cars introduced at the time.

Or maybe like several cars in 1 banner, lined up like A-B-C-D-E, you know how cars are lined up in magazines, that way but the cars would be the hatch-sedan-luxury released in that 6 month period or whatever time period.

That means new banners + people get to see the new released cars in the last 6 months all lined up in a nice little banner up there.

I'm hoping I made some sort of sense.

Anything to remove the skoda banner!

Isn't it good to send a reply to the person who has reported the Post on the action taken, so that the person can know was it right or wrong to report the post.

This is probably because its a wide screen pic. try cropping the pic from sides and make it of a normal resolution and see.

Default ordering stickers - field for handle name

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...ml#post1231106

With reference to this post by 'sumeethaldankar', me too felt that order page stickers should have had field for team-bhp handle name. It would also help to know which members have ordered team-bhp stickers.

gto and mods. i was just going through the test drive section and noticed that some of the info was outdated. eg, the innova - it says there is also a 10 seater option and that there is no climate control etc which has been added after the facelift. just minor things like these. maybe if there could be a report button or something?

Hey mods,

Keep up the good work.
- In the classifieds section, could it be made mandatory for the poster to put in the location of the good alongside its name so it is easier for us to know which goods are in which city.

Thanks!

Gagan, we'd like to keep Team-BHP's brand feel pretty much consistent, so changing the top banner majorly on a regular basis, from different designers etc might not be the best thing.

However, if in the future we do remove the advertising banner - we might convert it into a broadcast banner for the community. Im sure you're suggestion can apply to that banner if and when this does happen!

I think zerocritical might have a point. We will have this looked into, but in the meanwhile can you please try what he has mentioned (quoted below) and then report back on this thread? Thanks.

Mr. gowda79, thank you for being one of the very active members when it comes to helping mantain Team-BHP's quality via the REPORT POST feature.

The mods do take a look at every reported issue, discuss, and act only where they feel intervention is necessary. Occasionally the mods agree to not intervene if they feel no action is necessary for a report - but the report still does serve as a note to the mods to keep an eye out on that thread/post, so there is no such thing as a "wrong" report.
If you are convinced action is necessary for a particular post, you may report it for a 2nd time to encourage us to reconsider, but please, no more than 2 times per post

Bubby, we have a few things on the to-do list before the next vbulletin upgrade.
Chances are that it will be a mobile address, as opposed to an application.

There are currently a handful of cars which change randomly on the main webpage/portal Team-BHP - The Definitive Indian Car Community - Home

We are working on getting the same to apply for the forum section.

As for having more cars - we have tried to limit the number of cars, since if it is a new car everytime, or a very large pool of cars, webpage load times might be affected adversely since the image will not be loading from cache as often.

Thanks sukiwa, we will consider adding that as an optional field to the form.

Akshay1234 - if you could please point these discrepancies out clearly via a message using the Contact Us form, your help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

We are working on a new classifieds software which should make its way public in the next couple of months. This issue shall be resolved at that point as well as a lot of additional features.


Keep the suggestions coming.

Thanks,
