Also I am unable to switch from one subforum say Indian car dealership to longterm ownership directly with the forum Team BHP reviews instead I Have to go back to the main forum and swicth subforums. It would be nice to have the subforums displayed in the header so that opening of threads would be a lot more easier instead of opening mutliple internet pages.

While auto refresh would be a server extensive exercise it would also mean un-necessary refreshing for those who dont want it.

The best way to keep a track of all the thread that you have replied to or are interested in keeping a watch is to enable Auto Subscription mode & if you do not wish to receive that many mails select "No emails" option.

Now when you login again go to user cp, you will see all the subscribed threads with latest updates.

Rehan
If you search the way it has been depicted in the screen shot(quick search), the results thrown are not ordered as per any criteria/ rank.

If there was a way to sort the results (like in excel by clicking on the heading) this could be a great feature - i have seen this feature on other forums.

Was wondering if we could have a "hall of fame" kind of thread by the Mods. The thread could include the following

- First ever thread posted on TBHP/ or First ever thread under every forum subtitle
- First Memeber who joined (apart from the core Moderator group)
- First memeber to become senior Tbhpian
- Best rated thread in each sub forum
- Most viewed thread
- Thread with most comments

Well, its just an idea, not sure if this has been discussed before, if it has been then I am sorry, and if it hasn't been then I do not know about the rest but I definitely will be happy to get such information.

Regards

Thats an interesting suggestion Deky, you mean some place where one can see the different milestones of Team-Bhp.

We do have a section which is somewhat on similar lines as in it contains some of the important threads which you have mentioned.

The Collection of Best Threads Section

I meant Milestones achieved by TBhp & Members, yes you have put it right. Thanks!!!

For Eg. I really want to know which was the first ever thread opened on Tbhp when it started. What were we discussing that time.
Another eg: I also would want to know which has been the most viewed thread in a particular sub forum.

Again these are my views only, Lot others might not be interested in the same.

Thanks for listening anyways.

Regards

Yes I understand what you mean, lets see if we can workout something on those lines

You can do this yourself, just go to a section/section & click on Views Link for sorting the list of threads as per number of views & you will know which is the most & least viewed thread.

Since its an old thread

People. those of you who see popups on TBHP, please search for the following file on your computer
FTAPP.DLL
If its there, it means a malware called flashtrack has been installed on your PC. This is what causes popup ads.

How about a separate section where we can start threads on A.S.S experiences exclusively for each Brand .

Considering that this is a prime consideration during and after a purchase , i think it would do well to have such an option. As of now , we are going through long term ownership reviews or complaint threads.

I don't know if this has been asked mods, but some of the gif ads that are displayed just above "New reply" are kinda well, err, flashy and managers in office are asking if I am visiting some risque sites!

Can you check the content on some of these?

My 2 cents:
  • The ownership thread bulges a lot with congratulation, photo requests etc. Can we have dedicated button and users can click on them to say congrats or post pic? It can be like poll vote feature and we can show who are all the user who said congrats etc.
  • We have subscribe to thread, can we include subscribe to user option as well. If I have a favorite review poster I can keep an eye
  • Once I enter a thread it becomes difficult to view photos alone of that thread, need to go back to the thread list and then click on attachments. Can we include this under thread tools?

+1. I have asked for this feature before and asking for it again. The use case here is, I don't want to miss a scoop by sidindica, a travelogue by hvkumar or a review by GTO. Makes any sense?

Default IE 8 problem with t-bhp website

I am facing issues for the last few weeks on the team bhp site.
Typically this happens when I am already on a team-bhp page. I click on an internal link & it seems to hang for a long time.
When I try to move away from the page by trying to go to another site - say click on Google on my bookmarks, I get the following message.

---------------------------
Windows Internet Explorer
---------------------------
This window is busy.
Closing this window might cause some problems.
Do you want to close it anyway?
---------------------------
OK Cancel
---------------------------

I am using IE8 on XP - anyone else face this issue. I have faced this very frequently in the last few weeks.
