@PatchyBoy- One way I can think of is if we add an "Index" in the first post of the thread with links to the important posts in the thread. Some ownership reviews have started using this method- e.g. 1st service update, leather seats installed update etc.

It is not feasible or even humanly possible for mods to do this to each and every thread, so if you or some other members can compile a list for any particular thread you have in mind, just report that post with the required content/links and one of the mods will take it up.

Which is why, another solution has been stuff like ipbwiki or vbwiki. Or articles on team bhp

Opposed to the now chronological sorting of posts, is it possible to have a sorting of posts by the "Thanks" given? May be among the "Thread Tools" or in the "Advanced Search". This can add value to the threads, in terms of reading the most relevant / liked posts.

The notification link will take you to the edited post so that's not a solution, am afraid. But sometimes the original post may have already been archived by a moderator for reference as is the case in the specific instance that you mentioned. Check your PM

Just to specify, the post you referred to was one where the quoted post had been edited and not your reply. We request members to quote only the relevant part of a large post while replying, so as to not inconvenience our small screen/mobile users, whose tribe increases daily!

Yes, If you compare my post with the original post or the first post on that thread, I had removed the irrelevant stuff . As you saw my post, I was responding to the the lines, I had quoted.

What I didn't do was this.
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/announ...ml#post2765631 (How to MULTI-QUOTE (when replying to a thread) on Team-BHP)

I see there is "wrap quote tags around selected text "button when posting from the website. Just saw it.

But this is very tedious to do from the android app. Any suggestions or improvements ?

Mods - I have stated this issue before too but seeing no response would like to reiterate again.

Whenever my posts are quoted by newcomers or by those BHPians whose posts are yet to be approved by mods, I do get a notification in the form of pop up and e-mail. But when I try to open/view the link/post I am unable to do so. Would it be possible that the notification/pop up is flashed only after the post is aproved by mods.

The 30 minutes Edit time is impossible to manage most of the time due to power failior, no battery, being engaged in other work etc.

It would be most helpful to all if the Edit time is increased to 24 hours and should include thread title as well.

Other than that there should be a seperate link and breakup for travelogues from East West North South Northeast of the country for easy access and future reference purpose

San, 30-minute edit rule is strictly to take care of typos or anything that may have been missed (the typical "Oh no I forgot..." omissions). There is no substitute for composing a post/thread at leisure and reviewing it thoroughly before submission . Suggest you do that!

Of course, you may always report a post (using the report button in the left pane of your post) for any changes required in title thread/post content. Our average response time is 24 hours and often a lot faster than that.

If you are the thread starter, i.e. if you are composing a travelogue or a ownership review or any other informative stuff that takes time to compile, you can always use the the Assembly line section. There is no edit time limitation there. Your thread will only be visible to you and the mods. Once you are done, and happy, you can request the mods to move it to the public view.

More here - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/announ...m-section.html (The "Assembly Line" Forum section)

OT: All your NE travelogues are really good!

There is the following plugin:
https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...eb-slide-show/

If you come across a web page with a number of images, it will create a slide
show automatically for you. It is somewhat smart in deciding which images on
the page to include in slide show.

I wish to revisit several of travelogues with rich photography and enjoy them
again.

Only, sort of drawback is, we'll miss the annotations above the photo. But
pictures will look much nicer as the whole frame will be seen in one go rather
than scrolling it down, which takes away the fun.

No way! Ads promoting any Indian car are STRICTLY prohibited on Team-BHP. Request to please PM me details of such ads in the future so that action can be taken immediately.

Sorry, but it's a software limitation. We could further customise the software but trust us, that has its own complication.

Thanks, that's a great suggestion. We will evaluate the possibility.

Sorry about that Ghodlur. We're doing what we can to minimise the turnaround time with newbie posts. As things stand today, I'm pretty sure 75% of newbie posts are approved (or disapproved) before the one who is quoted gets to them.

Or better yet, visit the Travelogues Section of our Photo Gallery

I can't find the link for synopsis of the car reviews. The one which had an overall summary (for eg- aveo, matiz, cielo etc.). When I search for car reviews, I am redirected to official car review sub forum. Is the link removed or am I not looking at the right place?

Couple of things:
People, if they have to use emoticons, should put a space after the last word before inserting the smiley. Otherwise they get uploaded as 'placestupid', or 'xyzclap' and so on. Punctuation, unfortunately, is also required for emoticons.

Secondly, I have seen senior and not so senior BHPians post lengthy articles about their vehicles, but when you visit the My Garage section, it has nowhere there.

Can the moderators ask everyone to update their profiles with the changes or new acquisitions?
