Of late I am experiencing a strange problem. Whenever I enter my id and the password, I get the incorrect log-in message. This despite me taking care to enter the right id and password. Sometimes it takes me two or three log in attempts.

My OS is XP with service pack 3, browser is firefox 10

It would be nice to have the links to the 'Forum' in the blue and red standard themes as in the BHP themes.

Well, silly thing actually. Don't flame me for this. AFAIK, MB means Mega Bytes. It says both MB and bytes.

Mods, please don't take this as a question on moderator activity on the forum, but:

I have seen some Newbie posts being infracted for typing....like...this, using SMS lingo etc. Considering that Newbie posts have to be approved by a mod before they become visible, wouldn't it be better if issues such as this are sorted out before the posts appear on the forum and save the Newbies some infractions? For eg: mods could disallow the Newbie's post giving him the reasons for it. This would also keep the Newbies from achieving BHPian status until they start following the basic rules.

Looks like the above quoted issue is now resolved. I am able to post responses via my HD7’s IE now. Not sure if it was an update in the Team-bhp settings, or it got resolved with one of the regular software update for Windows Mango

MODS -

A suggestion -

On the classifieds page, while you select the options (cars/make/model etc) from dropdown, the number of items/page should also be available as an option on the same page.

What happens right now is - the number of items/page option comes up when the query fetches the result from the 1st page.

Thanks.

Hi folks.I have a suggestion to make.
this is with regard to the stickers.Other members have been talking about it too.
As we are a part of members only community which holds a very high reputation,it would be nice if we could distinguish ourselves from non-members.
It feels good to see the increasing number of vehicles wearing Team-Bhp stickers,but at the same time flaunting the name of this community holds a high value,responsibility as does the membership to this community.
There have been incidents where several vehicles flaunting Team-Bhp badges have been seen violating traffic rules and indulge in rash driving etc.In order to preserve sanctity and respect towards Team-Bhp why cant we have a sticker or two which would say member on the prevailing design.
I do understand there are logistics issues related to this but the sale of existing stickers could be kept under the header of non-member stickers and a members set could have the same stickers but with member printed on any two most popular stickers.which essentially means that members set could be sold to members only and the non-members set kept open for sale to anyone.
this way the number of stickers in a set remains same,no re-design issues and a member can flaunt a members badge along with any other stickers of his choice thus not depriving him or her of their favorite sticker. I even had a talk with senior bhpian Sachinj12 and probably he could effectively take it up to the moderators should majority of the people here would want the same.

Very much agree to this point. We are also seeing few taxis sporting these stickers.

Secondly, on a lighter note, these stickers will also make the spottings easier. I have spotted quite a few people here in Chennai and IIRC only 2 of my spottings got a response. So, am not sure if the others are actually t-bhpians.

Now, a suggestion from my side on the Spottings thread.

In this thread, we see quite a lot of posts belonging to Bangalore. On an average, I think at least 12 posts in one page of 15 posts would be from Bangalore-ans. Can't we dedicate one separate thread for Bangalore and one more for all other places put together? Might be my point sounds stupid - but I think there will be some more guys who would agree to my point. Searching this thread is becoming increasingly difficult day by day.

A separate thread for spottings by IronH4wk would be the next!!

@Antorquetik, two points about your suggestion:

1. The non-TBHP-ian will not be able to distinguish between the two. If he spots a rashly driven non-member sticker, he will still see TBHP + rash driving.

2. Not all TBPH-ians will drive carefully. You will still find some one driving rash.

Having said that, I do share the same concerns you have. If there was a way to keep TBHP (stikcers) and rash drivers apart, I'd love to see it practiced.

@condor
with all due respect sir,
our idea here is not to police rash drivers,it is just that member sticker will help us maintain the exclusivity that we proudly seek in this forum.
Secondly i feel it would help the members identify fellow bhpians.I highly doubt that an outsider would even be remotely interested in finding out if a car flaunting Team-Bhp stickers is driven by a member or not.

Dear Mod team,
Recently while logging on to the website, i have noticed that "www.teambhp.com" would not redirect me to Team-BHP - The Definitive Indian Car Community - Portal. (which earlier did)

As a member, i am aware of the exact site name along with the hyphen (team-bhp), but i dont think the guest users might, rather concluding that the site is down with problems.

Cant we devise a way through this ? So that we are not hindering our potential user !

Thank you.

hey, it is indeed redirecting now.
May be next time if the problem persists, will snap a screenshot if the mods need to see it.

Thank you

Sometimes, even though i am logged in, i get 'PRIVATE' written in shifting gears instead of showing me latest posts. I click on it, it takes me to shifting gears just fine.

Wonder what's wrong?

Those are threads in the Assembly Line sub-section (which falls in the Shifting Gears section) being updated. And since they're private until a moderator moves them out of that section, we see the thread name as 'PRIVATE' (i.e only the thread creator and moderators can see them!).
