Because of this, I am not able to locate a thread which I saved as draft. Any work around available?

Also how did you save a thread as darft? in Assembly line? If yes then you can also go to AL & you would see your thread, right there. This will ofcourse require you to be logged in to Team-Bhp.
Yes, the problem was present after logging in (home pc). Thanks Technocrat, the problem now seems to be solved. Now I am able to view my profile after logging in my home PC.
Thanks GTO for the link to my thread in assembly line section, I have now completed the thread and reported the post for requesting to move to an appropriate section.

It's a bug. Have a look at this post http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...ml#post2806825 (Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians) and then subsequent posts.

I am also having same issue.

The bug with BHP Silver theme is back. I'm on Firefox on Mac 10.7.4, if that makes any difference.

Thanks again guys.

The bug was fixed (it was a CSS issue), but over this weekend the stylesheets were re-built, and it came back.

Its been fixed again, and hopefully this time for good

You'll have to hit refresh a bunch of times, or better yet, clear your browser's cache. Let me know if that works.

In the quick reply box? Click on the paperclip icon... just like in the advanced view.

What skin are you using?

Clearing the cache cleared the issue. However, I'll post few cosmetic observations below.

Noticed some posts extending to the right if it contains pictures with extra size, as below.

I am getting an empty blank post frame just after the first post, if I am not logged in.

Hello

1. Where multiple pictures are posted, especially in the Pre-War, Post-War sections, can the uploader of these pictures add titles and/or descriptors?
Right now all we can see is the uploader's name.
Information and tags can be added to them.

2. Also I have noticed that a lot of people have written their ownership reports but are 'forgetting' to update their vehicles in their profiles.

3. In the member's section, the vehicles are listed in a column, can this column be made searchable? For example, today I was looking for owners of a type of car and had to do a general search and read posts to figure that they may not necessarily own them but were just commenting on the vehicles. Knowing this information is crucial so i can ask the right people my doubts quickly. So if Point 2 is taken on and people update their cars/bikes, zeroing in on fellow owners would be really useful. This of course applies to vehicles people want to disclose. And my thinking is that if their replies, ownership reports, pictures anyway mention them voluntarily, then this information is not really a secret.

4. Keep up the good work!

All images uploaded using our attachment system are re-sized to 800 pixels wide. This is done so that users on low res screens do not have to scroll side-to-side (which is a real pain!)

In the screenshot you've posted, chances are you are either using a resolution lower than 1024x768 OR you've set the browser zoom to something above 100%.

This post sometimes contains an ad banner. Its only visible to guests. When there's no ad banner in the slot it shows up like in the screenshot you posted.

Its up to the member if they want to post descriptions or not. We do allow the ability to post pictures in-line and then add text to each one - but not everyone does this when uploading several images. (Also, as an aside, check out our PhotoGallery if you haven't already seen it.)

Hmmm.. true, but can't really force people to do this. Though we do have some future plans that might help this issue.

It is currently searchable. On the members list page, click "search" on the top right, and select "advanced search". You should be at this page : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/memberlist.php?do=search

Fine Though the browser zoom is 100%, the maximum resolution on my Inspiron mini is 1024 X 600.

1024 x 600 should be fine (since its the same width).

In the screenshot you posted, the image hasn't been posted in-line, therefore it has that additional "attachments" border around it. This is whats making the page about 20-40px wider than the minimum we accounted for

This is regarding moderation of posts of newbies like me.

I understand that first 25 posts of a newbie needs to be moderated. but since any posts under shifting gears section would not be counted, those would not be added to arrive at the number 25.

Wouldn't it be better idea moderate first 25 posts of a newbie irrespective of the section it is posted to. This would also save efforts of moderators, as most of newbies post on introduction's threads initially.

True. 1024 pixels account for the width, I forgot. But then how do images come not in-line? When quoting a post that contain an image, I guess? When I randomly counter checked few pages from the images thread and saw post #3260 at http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...hread-218.html (The Auto-Image thread), with an image in-line, went outside the intended width.

EDIT : Ok, I guess by in-line we mean the images that are posted in between the texts, attached using the Attachments button in the Message menu in the Reply to Thread frame. The other way is to use the Manage Attachments under the Additional Options frame, right? But, don't we want to align all the post frames to a specific width, whether it contains in-line images or not? Not much of an issue, but that would have looked better

@Rehaan,

Thanks, upon refreshing the screen was normal.

Regarding the attachment of screenshot, as per your suggestion I would still have to save the screenshot in a word doc and then attach using the paperclip icon. I tried direct pasting in the new message window and nothing happened. Pls advise.
