Another use-case for a similar feature can be seen in the route-travel queries section. Usually there are a few posts that detail bypassing a certain hotspot, or directions via a lesser-traveled route, or detailing any similar situation - in incredible detail with map links and POIs etc. But when the thread grows a few pages beyond that point, such posts are lost.

I keep a Google document where I copy/paste such information.

What I'm thinking of (which is in addition to what is being proposed here) is an interface like Quora's. There, a particularly useful answer I can add to my "Reading List" which is linked from my profile page.

I seem to be having problems on Firefox & Chrome. Team-Bhp page doesn't load since the past 2 days. I changed my ISP a couple of days back, the website was very much working even with the new ISP but isn't working now. What could be the issue? I have cleared the cache, still doesn't work.

Some suggestions that flows in my mind -

1. Team Bhp Stickers - Few forum members have shared their views here,
here is my point- if there is a scope - Stickers can be customized and members ID be punched to it. So when a car is spotted with sticker, others will have an idea ( can distinguish non member - member cars ) also adds value for better bonding and publicity as well. Graduate to Monograms.

2. Better Connect - All these years with TeamBhp, its been minimal meets i have appeared, somehow the friendship i developed here makes me continue with folks offline. Should there be a proper channel, where decentralization pertaining to cities, locations, neighborhood is promoted' more members can stay connected effectively ( in my locality, i see cars in compound with Team bhp stickers, dint know who the member is, my interactions weren't fruitful)

3. Support Fellow Bhpians - (has reference with my aforesaid points) Reach out for anything & everything. say for e.g - when you see a member's car in trouble / breakdown or a situation confronting with a cop' fellow bhpians passing that way can lend a support. Whole idea is being approachable & spread unity in this community

4. Number Plates - Similar to IND plates, we can introduce TEAMBHP Plates bearing spectacular character, special material & font in compliance with transport laws

Issue seems to have resolved all by itself miraculously! Pages loading now.

I'm now able to access Team-bhp from my other old ISP provider which is about to be disconnected! Certainly seems to be an ISP issue, is there any solution to this?
ISP is 5 Net in Suburban Mumbai!

What happens when you ping 205.147.110.34 ?

Do you know what your DNS servers are set as? I think changing them to OpenDNS would probably fix this.

I can't get the logic behind "Thanks" button for "Thread moved from the Assembly Line (The "Assembly Line" Forum section) to the XXXXXXXXXXXX" posts.

Any clues.

That's extremely strange carzone. I've never seen this before, and it looks like a deeper (hardware) issue?

Not possible for stickers at the moment, due to the way we print them.

However, do see this in case you missed it : NEW

This is definitely a good suggestion Sidhu_hs!

However, its one that requires a lot of manual effort, and hence we don't make it a requirement.

If members wish to have an "Index" post in their Ownership Reviews, we're more than happy to edit the post and add links when informed by the member via 'Reported Post'.

Example : Condor's Ikon (Duratorq-in' with Josh: Ford Ikon TDCi * 4 years 7 months/43,941 km & Letting Go :()

Nice idea! (Similar to how they have "Numberplate Frames" abroad). Will have to look into the legality of it.

a) The Thanks feature cannot be set per post or even per thread. It is activated/deactivated per section.
b) Sometimes the moderator who moved the post out helped the thread starter a lot by either formatting the post, suggesting what needed to be added to complete the report, etc etc - and the member clicks 'thanks' when the thread is moved out.

Guys I have a suggestion for improving the quality of this forum. Though I don't know how much practical my idea is.

My father has always wanted to buy a Gypsy, and he thinks this is the perfect time. However, I can't find a typical review of this car, though ownership reviews are there. Everytime I read a TBHP review, I am always very satisfied with its quality and details. This leads to me wanting this top grade review of the Gypsy.
We don't have the reviews of cars like the Ford Fiesta 1.6,which has again made it to the enthusiasts car list this year. Also, enthusiast cars which are now extinct but are a good find in the used car market, like the Honda Civic and Accord(not exactly an enthusiastic car) can have their own TBHP review so that BHPians who ate looking forward to buy these cars can have the peace of mind of reading a top class TBHP review and then taking their decision.
Please delete if this is OT or impractical.
