Perhaps a better way would be not to pose for pics or specifically request the shooters not to publish your pics.
Sir my suggestion is to limit access to each and every part of the forum to the general public (non members). From the beginning I knew it's not feasible, but had that concern in my mind which I wanted to share. Would like to thank you for noticing it and I have no disregards towards members publishing pics inside the forum as they were within my consent.

My usual "portal" to the forum is the subscribed threads listing. I have a bookmark that take me to the very page.

Recently I have noticed that the read/unread mark is wrong. I might not have visited the site all day, but the listing shows all but a few most recent threads as read.

I want to unsubscribe from all email notifications I get from my subscribed threads. Almost twice every week, I get a flood of emails from tbhp regarding my subscribed threads, which has become quite annoying. Is there any way I can get rid of it?

I guess you can do it page wise and not all threads at the same time. I could be wrong too.

Also ensure that your default subscription mode is set to "no email subscription" to prevent email subscriptions from newly subscribed threads.

^^Thanks, I have already set it to "no email subscription" mode, not sure if I can do anything else. Would wait for the next flood mail, to ascertain if it works or not.

Can we make the Give Away thread accessible only for members? Many times the coupon codes are being found invalid while checking out. This could be one reason for the problem or am I missing something?

suggestion had been made to members not to post the coupons openly and to provide them to the people contacting them through PMs. however, members still continue to post the coupon/voucher codes openly.

Agreed . But in my opinion, if we are able to restrict the access it will be better. This can make the process faster and more convenient for both the parties.

Could we have a separate thread for coupons and discount codes? Keeping give-aways for actual things?

Hi Thad,

Unfortunately this might be being caused by the App (though I'm not 100% sure). Do you have that installed? Maybe try turning OFF notifications? (I still have to test this myself).

Not sure. There was an old thread here (Usernames of TBHPians elsewhere (BB-Pin, MSN, Skype, hi5, xda-developers etc))

Maybe you can ask again in this thread (Blackberry Phones and Services in India).

The setting you've changed so far is just for future subscriptions. It won't act retro-actively.

See my post here for how to turn off email subscriptions for your existing subs : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...ml#post3109396 (Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians)

Nope sorry. We don't have thread-level control like that.

Do report posts / ask mods to put a bold warning in the thread if you see it being repeated. (I myself wasn't aware of this. It's a good idea).

Update : New thread here (The Discount Coupon Thread - Share them here)

Thank you for looking at this.

I don't use any APP, I only browse the site using Firefox at home.

Oh, that's strange.

The next time you log in and see this issue, look at the top-right of your screen, where it says "You last visited: xxxxx".

See if that time is accurate (within 60 minutes of the last time you actually visited), or if it is some in-between time.

Let me know.

Is there a way to dig up official reviews of old cars? For example the SX4 or Fiesta 1.6S (If it was reviewed)

Is there a time interval at which the android app of team-bhp is updated?
Reason i am asking is because the January update wasn't good and i had to switch back to older version. So, just want to know when is next update scheduled.
