Default Print option for posts

i was just reading GTO's post on Safe Driving in the Rains and wanted to take a printout to share with some folks i know who would be benefited, but i didn't have a option just to print that section of the post. to print i would have to print the whole page, which is not what i would have wanted.

can we have a option, like many sites do, to open a post in a printer friendly version, which then can be printed conveniently?

Post Re: Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians

This is with regards to the Team-BHP Stickers (and i don't know if anyone has suggested this earlier).
People have noticed that there are several non-members having TBHP stickers on their rides.

This could be 'cause of the following reasons:
1. members selling their cars (without removing the stickers)
2. members getting stickers for their friends, relatives, etc.
3. non-members being able to order straight form the website

while 1 and 2 (above) can't be controlled, it is certainly possible to put a stop to 3.

I find it imperative to allow only members to order stickers (by making the store accessible only once the user signs in with his/her handle); or else - as several members have pointed out - people may start perceiving the stickers as a symbol of bad driving. I am assuming here that members don't cause inconvenience to others on the road (which is to a reasonable extent, true).

Hi,
In the advice section, after the main article lots of pages are there with posts from members. For a newbie its difficult to read all the pages. Could the initial article itself be periodically modified to add any relevent value additions by members so that it becomes a comprehensive article?
Does the serch function allow use of quotes and '+' as in google search?

Is there any possibility to enable buyers to go in for collective bargains from manufacturers/dealers directly? A thread on 'I am planning to buy' (separate for each manufacturer) just like a poll so that at any point of time one can know how many members are on the verge of buying a particular car. Dont know how you can have live data though. But it will be an amazing feature to collaborate for buyers in a state/city

That goes against the forum's policy of non-commercialization. Mods can clarify this.

Moreover, I doubt the feasibility of such an initiative.

I quite like the 'thank you' feature. I wish to know that if anything can be done to notify a member when his post is thanked like when quoted. I have to check by going to control panel and clicking on 'find all posts that have been thanked' after I notice an increase in thanks count.

Not sure whether it has been mentioned here. I have observed a few times that if a member quotes my post, I dont get a PM. Have not found a pattern, it appears random. Or, maybe, I am missing something. Does it happen to anyone else?

True, and to add to it, the posts are sorted by post date by default, not "when thanked" date. So it becomes a major manual task to find which post has been thanked, once the total number becomes large. Is it possible to incorporate a sort option. Thanks.

Yes, I too have noted that on few occasions I do not receive PMs. It also happens sometimes when my thread or post is moved or deleted.

Red face Re: Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians

I have observed a strange thing, when a member quotes my post, I receive a mail at my e-mail inbox. When I try to open the link the webpage simply keep refreshing and i am unable to read the post at all. The same thing happens when I refresh the BHP page and I get a pop up of the quoted post intimation. Upon trying to open the page, the same thing happens. The page simply keeps refreshing. All I do is wait for some time and then retry opening the page or the link.
Any one faced this kind of issue?

This is a member behaviour request.

I do wish people would stop this "@name" business. It's like putting a hiccough there.

Apparently its [recent] origin is twitter. This is not twitter: we have normal conversation in normal (colloquial) language. The @s are as unpleasant as the u and r and gr8s of SMS/Chat, and I wish the mods would consider them as such.

Nobody needs an @ in front of their name to understand that it is a name, and their name.



ps... hope this doesn't get deleted for using SMS language

I've hit the 'Thanks' button by mistake, multiple times! How can I undo my action?

It comes from java.

I kind of like it. Especially if the person's name happens to be something confusing like musical notes () or like bblost for instance.

At times it happens that updates are made to the threads created by the moderators’ team, due to various reasons. These updates could be text or pictures. For e.g.; If the pricing of the new Fiesta is announced, it will get into one of the section in the review posts by Rehaan. I know this could be difficult, but is there a way to highlight to updates (maybe in italics, or in a different font color), so that there is no need to read through the whole post again?

I don't think there is a way to undo the action. It used to happen many times when this feature was introduced. But once got used to it, the problem kind of died off

The following post:http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offici...ml#post1852373 (Maruti WagonR : Test Drive & Review)

mentions that K10 Wagon R is not available in Duo ( LPG ) variant. But right now, K10 wagon R is available in petrol only, CNG and LPG variants.

Request to update the post.

Default Re: Like Test Drive / Ownership report... can we have service report

aago ; I believe the 'report post' button would help in the cause highlighted above. It would be modified as per request.

Have across forums, where you can take-back your thanks.
