1) Will it be encouraging for BHPians to have a one or two BHPian-of-the-month in a section in the forum main page, below the 'Today's Birthdays' section? The ones who have contributed to the forum maximum this month, of-course apart from the moderators? Also, may be, the most valuable contributor to the suggestions thread, decided by the moderators alone.

2) Won't the posts be less cluttered if we remove the thread title provided in brackets when we post URLs of a Team-BHP post?

3) This seems to have been asked before, but I think this is a bit different. Can we have 'Like' buttons instead of the 'Thanks' buttons in the sections like 'Shifting Gear'. The Likes need not add up to the Thanks or to anything. Can't this be easily implemented by bringing back the Thanks button to these sections, renaming it and not adding to the total count? Thanks and Like is such a hit in today's online world and we just need something to hit or press upon without commenting.

Work around for this for e.g;

I thought otherwise; polish, to take of the thinnest layer of paint would have to contain some abrasives. And here is one post that I came across searching the forum for Sonax Car Polish, which made me more apprehensive as a first time user of a polish.


All you have to do is post the POST NUMBER not the direct link in this way below.

Wow, that was super quick and just what I wanted. Thanks Wildon! Will do that from next time.

I think we have to have a POST /POST button too in the editor sometime sooner

Sounds Brilliant GTO, I have a suggestion for the name of the section as well, we can call it The 5 star Club. More than anything this move will greatly increase our access to great articles people will now aspire to have their articles as a part of the 5 star club thus increasing our already rich compendium of quality and rich material. Thanks again.

I found using the 'Search' drop down with the 'Search Titles Only' checkbox suiting my needs the most. But my guess it that this is not driven by the google search. I tried something like 'car+new' to look for the new car prices thread. But instead the result was any thread that had either car or new in the title.

I appreciate all the work by moderators and the time they dedicate to this forum, but my thread is complete and has been sitting there for 2 days now, and i have already reported it twice, Just to make sure it wasn't missed.

Is there any other way to communicate this to mod's without spamming them?

GTO, can we introduce something like a 'Go Live' button which might only be present inside Assembly line threads? Once the thread is complete, the composer can just choose (say, from a drop down menu like the forum-jump option) which section the new thread should go into (Travelogues / ownership reports / whatever), and click on the 'Go live' button.

This would free moderators from the hassle of moving threads from Assembly line for each and every new article. Why not pass the responsibility to the composers themselves?

Just a casual idea.

I would like to search pictures on TBHP. I have been unsuccessfully searching for an XUV 500 pic which was posted by one of our members and tweeted by Anand Mahindra too .

Any thoughts ?

1) Go to: The Team-BHP Photo Gallery

and choose:

A lot of knowledge is being captured in the various threads, I was just going through the AC vents cleaning thread, where at least three different products were being discussed, and several other methods of cleaning the AC system were being discussed. The products, the processes and their outcomes need to be tabulated somewhere so that people can instantly know which works, or which doesn't.

Can there be a method where such a tabulation can be done from the members' posts? One easy way is to add a poll to the thread so members can vote for the products and their results. But this would be a very simple method.

A similar problem arises when searching for new cars. There are several reviews, the official as well as unofficial reviews, ownership threads and so on. But what would be great is a consolidated page where the criteria for rating a car are listed and each car's score captured against it. This score would be captured from the individuals posting either test drive reviews or ownership experiences. For e.g. if I were to write an ownership review of my Nano, I would mandatorily have to answer a set of questions. These questions could also cover the age/ownership period, so there would be a question set for the immediate ownership, another for 1 year ownership, another for 3 years, and yet another for post-warranty ownership. This would create a knowledge base which can be used much more effectively by prospective owners trying to narrow down their choices.

Any particular reason due to which a quoted post doesn't trigger a PM to me?

This post did not trigger a PM to me. There is no change in my user settings. Any guesses for this?

I think it was of this guy's car. Check this thread.

Anyway as someone correctly mentioned searching @AM's tweets would be faster.
