Smile Re: Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians

Gents,

I've got a bee in my bonnet.

There are some 15 million threads on Team-Bhp right now that are about detailing, washing, cleaning, interior detailing, c-quartz coating etc etc.

Ok, maybe not 15 million, but you get the drift, right?

So, why don't we have a separate section for cleaning & detailing under the modifications & accessories forum?

That way, folks interested in detailing and cleaning can just get all that info under that forum!

I bring this topic to light, because just recently GTO had to condense all that info, and create another thread (Simplified: The Idiot's Guide to keeping your car clean & shiny), about keeping the car clean, even though we already have a 600+ page long thread about that!

Not that I have a problem with GTO doing that, but, wouldn't having a separate forum for detailing and stuff be better?

Oh, and btw, if you do happen to create such a forum, please make sure both the 600+ page thread & GTO's thread are sticky-ed

Just a thought, so please do feel free to comment.

Thanks & cheers!

While watermarking pictures, can we try to incorporate a single line of semi-transparent ( 50 per cent transparency) water mark through the center than having it at the base where it can be cropped off?

It says Invalid thread.

The Mods did actually discuss this just a week back! I think the consensus was that despite their being a lot of interest & information on the topic, it's not quite enough to warrant its own section at the moment.

Thanks for pointing this out!

This was an option when we were considering the various watermarks - however, it was just too distracting and took away from the experience of viewing pics on the forum (eg. ownership reports / travelogues, etc).

For pics that truly need a copy-proof watermark, we do manually add a www.team-bhp.com watermark in the center of the pic. Example.

Do use the Report Post function if you spot any member-posted scoop pics requiring this treatment

Can we have some sort of format for the posts made on this thread (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...our-car.html)? (Team-BHP Stickers are here! Post sightings & pics of them on your car) )

Maybe something on the lines of-

Car- _____
Place- _____ ( preferably area, city )
Registration Number- _____
Followed by the picture (if any).

Currently, most of the spottings are reported only by posting a picture, which won't help in a thread search. Given the volume of spottings that are reported daily, its quite a tedious task to sift through the images to check if one's been spotted.
Including the place and registration number in the post ( in text form) may help in increasing the rate of acknowledgements as an in-thread search will throw up better results then.

Hi there, wish to know if we can start a thread on whether we should have different stickers for members and non members. I am not sure if there's one already

No offence buddy but this topic has been discussed so many times in this thread. Please search for answers in this thread.

To give you an answer in short, it is difficult logistically and feasibility.

Lately, there seems to be a problem related to giving a Rating to a thread. Whenever I go to the "Rating" box on the top-right and click on any (stars) rating, I receive this error in a Pop-up box:

Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians-untitled.jpg

I really hope it's not my computer, IP address or my broadband acting up strangely.

The same has been discussed here (Suggestions for Team-BHP from Team-BHPians). It is probably due to the proxy network.

Thanks, Pawan.

The problem was happening in my computer at home, where I don't have any proxies set up. I access Team-BHP from my home computer and through the Team-BHP app on my iPhone 6 Plus.

I just rated the new XUV 500 Official Review thread and it registered my rating, no problem. Went to J.Ravi's XUV 500 ownership thread and left my rating, and it registered the same as well.

So whatever was causing the problem, seems to have been rectified. Thanks for the same, team.

Hi Mods,

One suggestion that came to my mind right now is to have T-BHP do a video review of cars , discussions on similar topics and partner with a reputed national TV channel to air the shows on TV. There are few international shows like 'Top Gear ' and 'Fifth Gear' which are highly popular. But in the indian context, I see a vacuum which T-BHP can fill in.
Major Benefit that i see is a wider reach, thus customers feeling confident with presence of T-BHP by knowing our reputation for unbiased review and customer protection.
