The same designs you have for the stickers can be used for t-shirts as well.

Members can order online.

PS: I am in no way connected to them, but have come across their website thru some email chains.

thanks

I have dealt with myntra.com . I got some t-shirts printed from them . The quality was so-so of the tshirt and the print was ok. I can give it a try if you want. I can get one tshirt printed for myself with a team-bhp sticker and can see the quality and then i can let others know in here.

By the way how to update a thread heading after 3-4 days of its creation. for ex. I would have created a thread and after 4-5 days I want to edit the thread name with say EDIT/UPDATE:XXXXXXXXXX. BUt in current situation the editing facility is not given to the owner of the thread. So he has to send a request to the MODs for the editing/updating. Can this be given to the owner of the thread.

The search engine we have pretty much finds everything - except if you are searching for really short words

You CAN find your own posts, and that too with conditions like the time you posted, sub-forum you posted in, etc.

I suggest you look at the advanced search options - Team-BHP - Search Forums

Good one.
We could get more sticker creations from the forum and get them done.

I agree, Being a Data center Junkie, should have given a thought about it .May be I went Over Board with the excitement of a New Kid On the Block, who has just got a new Toy to play with .

Sushil, you can change the skin you're using using this drop down on the bottom left of your screen.

In the example you have cited i.e. 0/1 (4)

0 is the number of warnings
1 is the number of infractions
(4) is the total active infraction points as of that time

I believe we have reach a middle-of-the-road solution that will keep everyone happy.

Type Team-BHP - The Definitive Indian Car Community - Home on your mobile and the regular forum skin will load (auto mobile detection has been switched off).

Two ways to access the mobile skin:

A. type m.team-bhp.com and you will be redirected to the mobile version.

B. Alternatively, on the regular forum skin, go down to the style chooser (left hand side bottom of each page) and choose skin "BHP Mobile".

Some fine-tuning still pending. Expect an announcement once this has been finalised.

The current batch of smilies serve their purpose just as well.

Why not use the numberplate stickers? They are rather small in size?

Please use the "report this post to a moderator" functionality to bring any suspect thread to our notice. If you feel the same should be edited / deleted, you may enter your reasoning for the same. The Mod Team will then decide on the future course of action. For the record, yes, many threads have been deleted as they were baseless accusations / speculation.

Advanced search -> Search by username -> Find Posts OR Find threads.

You may use the "report this post to a Moderator' functionality to request such changes. Suggestion : Please do so only if the thread title change is absolutely imperative. The number of requests can, at times, get overwhelming.

Our forum search engine is very accurate. However, we don't index words shorter than 3 characters for server performance reasons.

Thus, if you want to search Team-BHP for the term M5, best to use google search. More information here.

Wouldn't it be simpler to change your habit? That is, don't click on the free space at the bottom of webpages.

Alternatively, you may use a different skin (as suggested by Benbsb29)

Would it be a nice idea to have a separate section in the forum for futuristic cars? (battery operated, solar operated, bio fuel etc etc). I know we wont have much of inputs as of now as they are still in nascent stage, but atleast we can boast on TBHP that we are the first to look forward from petrol/ diesel and also spread awareness on futuristic cars.

Regards

This might have been suggested earlier. Anyways, here goes. Why not provide the 'Go Invisible' option for everyone?

hey mods, this sounds great. How about adding some merchandise of TBHP like the TSHIRTS, Caps, Keychains. I guess this should be a good gift to all fellow TBHP'ans on the 6th Anniversary of TBHP

How about providing a link to the post that has caused the warning/infraction?

This would help other members in not to commit similar mistakes. May just improve the quality of posts further.

Alternatively, the same could be listed on the member profile. Yes, I know this is somewhat sensitive.

To get the link of the post where you have received a warning/infraction, just go to User CP and you will find it below the Subscribed threads.

Hope that helped
