Well,

Team Bhp should give away the set of team BHP Stickers once a newbie becomes BHPian. Although this should be taken on a case to case basis and not to everyone who becomes a BHPian.

On crossing the 50 post barrier the persons should be analised and quizzed well by mailing him a set of questionair to which he has to reply. If he/she meets the expectations of the mods or the concerned authority, only then he should be gifted with team BHP stickers which he can proudly put it on to his ride.

How about that !!!

Abbas.

Well it should not be the general sticker that anyone can buy. You have to show that you've earned it. So it should be a different design. Just one sticker that is not for sale.

Sorry to say, and may sound rude, but its a stupid suggestion. First off, Team- Bhp does not make money by accepting money from Auto Manufactures and whatever little is earned through google ads and sticker sales goes to run Team-Bhp. Giving away free gifts is for those sites who want readers to visit their sites and attract them with gifts. Team-Bhp is popular enough to avoid such gimmicks.

Instead of this suggestion, it would be better if a person who becomes a Team Bhp'ian buy a set of stickers and show his support to the site.

I agree, you should earn it with atleast 50 posts to be able to buy a set or more.

Giving away a sticker for every Team Bhpian would not make any sense cost/logistics or forum wise. there are so many Bhpians who hit 60-100 posts and just fade away. Have see so many older posts, which people not active any more.

Giving away a sticker/goodies through your City Moderators for becoming a Senior Bhpian is something else and should be strongly considered .

Also how about a different level for someone hitting 5000+ posts. These guys are the 'Team-Bhpian Vetrans/Gurus'

I have seen very very few senseless/pointless posts from guys with over 5000 posts. I look forward to say what these guys have to say on a given thread.

How to you only unsubscribe to email notifications of a subscribed thread? In new ones i now uncheck the email notification but how to do it in old ones? Every monday i land up getting 50 odd mails about thread activity and since i am daily accessing tbhp, i really don't need those notifications now.

The only problem I had with team-bhp is that in some cases posts were deleted saying"Please search before posting".

I am fine with this but since its a discussion,I would want to start a new one and interact with all the persons(which might be different from the earlier thread about the same topic),take their suggestions and then come to a conclusion.

I think a thread is about discussion and getting feedback and for this,the person who is actually posting needs to be involved.

So would be happy if everyone can post.

Otherwise,the site has loads of info and I find it very useful and also people happy to help out

How about having a better search option in the members section, so we can search members by name or location or occupation or cars they own.

It means to say, search for a similar thread and post your query there, instead of starting a new similar thread. Lot of people are already subscribed to those threads and they will immediately help you out with your query.

could be possible, after becoming bhpian, some of the post by this member have been deleted or have been shifted with the thread (to the collection of best threads)

Even if the post is shifted, it still remains his post. So that will not affect the number. Regarding deletion, it's done quite soon. I don't think the mods will wait so long to delete. Probably some bug. Today my posts were stuck at 103 for a long time.
