+1

this was also in my mind but resisted to share. The cars should change regularly and with different models like SX4, Linea, ANHC etc.

EDIT - Mods may use photos of members rides from AUTO IMAGE thread or they may ask us to mail them.

I hope this is not very tedious to implement.

When a newbie quotes someone, the quotee (wonder if this word exists!) gets a PM instantly; while the post is displayed only after the MODS approve it. Is it possible the system could be tweaked so that PMs are sent after the MODS approve the post.

I got a PM about being quoted and was searching all my subscriptions; and then I realized the quoter (again!) is a newbie.

Just realized - is the "PM-when-quoted" feature off for the categories for which posts are not counted (eg. Collection of best threads, Shifting Gears etc)?

We really need a list of reputable mechanics, listed citywise perhaps?

Not only will it be useful for people from that city to find good mechanics, but also people visiting/passing through.

What say?

One of the other forums where I am active is a travel-related forum called Trip Advisor. One excellent feature thay have is a single click to see a list of all your own posts. Each item in the list is hyper-linked directly to the actual post.

This makes it very easy to locate any of your own posts, especially on the threads that have a large number of pages.

Can we have such a feature here too? Or is there a way to do this already which I am missing?

This feature is already present here, for your kind information.

All you need to do is :

1) Click your 'handle-name'.
2) Select 'Find all posts made by 'your handle-name', from the drop down menu that appears.
3) Done.

Alternate method :

2) Select 'my profile' link, from the list of options that appears.
3) Scroll down and you'll see 'Find all posts made by 'your handle-name', click it
4) Done.

Hi, I would suggest that you put a post in the thread too, to publish the thread in public domain. This is along with the Reported post for a quicker action. We can always delete the post containing request for publishing.

While we do try to act as soon as possible it takes time due to various reasons.

Would it be possible to slightly stretch the total number of characters allowed in the signature? The present length limit seems to be too short and I cannot accomodate/list all my vehicles, I know it is a very trivial and specific issue to MY case but there might be others who face the same problem.

Sometimes I wish there was an option to 'Favourite' a post in a thread. Many times in a whole thread there is a certain post that contains information that I'd like to save, a 'Favourite' option would be ideal!

A way of making folders to sort out these Favourited posts, as well as being able to search through these posts, in each individual user's control panel would further enhance the experience.

As an example, in the 'Guide to Eating Out' threads, a certain post might recommend a great place I want to try out! I simply favourite the post and choose for it be favourited under a custom food folder! Later on, it'll be easier for me to find that info when I need it!

I really think this would be a great addition!

A workaround would be to "Thanks" that post. In your profile, all posts that you thanked are shown at one place.

Never thought of that, but I have thought of a [another] solution!

The post number is a link to that individual post. You could bookmark it, keeping a specific "Team-BHP Favourite Posts" bookmark folder in your browser

Yes, I guess this could work.

But, I mean if next to the thanks button there was a favourite button, and when you press it you get a small window that lets you choose under which category you'd like to save it under it'd be awesome!

Yep! This is what I've been doing but thought it'd be neat to keep all T-BHP related material on my account on the site itself
