Not sure if this has already been suggested yet, Can the threads go into a freeze state if there is no action for a certain period (say 1 month)? It should not mean that the thread is locked permanently. Users should be able to post replies on it, but with moderator approvals. So, any further posts on the thread (after is it is in a frozen state), will be queued up for approval. If found meaningful, it can be approved so that the thread becomes active again.

PS: This prevents old threads from being brought up the in list with unwanted comments or repetitive comments without adding any value.

Can the search be improved? I was looking for the ecosport thread and was not sure if the title was "eco sport" or "ecosport" so i decided to just search for eco. (under search > quick search) well the search did not turn up anything related to ecosport. turns out the title was "EcoSport" and you had to key in "ecosport" and not just "eco" to get the results.

Again, while searching for this thread, i searched for "suggestion" and the title had "suggestions" with an s in it, which did not bring the required result.

can this be fixed, the work around is to use google custom search

How about having designated logins given out to manufacturers, like the official TBHP-Maruti, TBHP-Ford, etc the respective company spokesmen?

We are a very respected forum for them, and they are also co-operating with us with sales data, test drives, etc. If we give a login would it give them a voice in the forum?

In the other hand, it may hamper the neutrality of the forum, if they become too vocal / active, w.r.t. to others or get into propaganda mode (the second can be moderated though). Even otherwise, we would have to ensure that standard replies are filtered out and the messages meet TBHP standards in quality, content and preciseness.

Would be tough thing and am not able to say we should / should not have it!

Exclamation Error while browsing Team-BHP using Google Chrome

I have been using Google Chrome for ages and Team-BHP looked perfectly alright till today noon.

However, today around 1400 hrs, the pages started behaving erratically. None of the forum listing load completely even individual threads not loading with some gibberish characters are being shown. Please refer to the screenshot below.

I tried getting into the generated page source too, but it too contained gibberish characters. Is everything fine with Team-BHP and the application running behind it?


P.S.: Apologies if this is not the right section, but I did a search and couldn't find any such thread. The only thread was about some DB error in this section itself and closed. This can be moved to appropriate section please.

Thanks for reporting.

Server's been misfiring since noon today. We're in the midst of resolving this problem.

I've been getting this weird error since today.

I have to refresh 2 - 3 times for the page to load properly. Is this because of the server issue?

Browser is Firefox 21.

Even the Android app is giving error message on few occasions. I tried on my laptop and there were issues of pages not loading up. I hope we have not been attacked and hacked by some automobile company which has been at the forum's receiving end.

Even I am also facing the same problem. Pictures appear scrambled, weird text appears out of nowhere and page does not load completely.

The android app is showing errors, I had to refresh certain pages even thrice to load. Worst case, once the app crashed. Hope the servers are fine.

Why not add 'comments' in the news section? You could have it moderated in case the reason of not having it is the automated spam comments.

I am also issues while accessing Team BHP from yesterday. Many a times, reloading the page helps, but not always.
In some threads, I am not able to load the last page - the browser goes on and on, and in some cases, I get the 'Page cannot be displayed (HTTP 500)' error.
For eg, I am not able to load this URL - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/indian...deals-234.html (The "NEW" Car Price Check Thread - Track Price Changes, Discounts, Offers & Deals) , but I can load all the other pages from the same thread.
