Not possible, because reviews are done my members who also have to earn their daily bread. All admins have other lives and things that keep them busy.
And a team-bhp review is probably more exhaustive to write than it is to read I can hazard a guess that it goes through multiple reviews before it available to us members.

Your suggestion would be perfect for professionals who draw salaries to write reviews.

I always wonder how they manage to run this forum with so few ads.

.
It seems that either I could not convey properly or you read it hastily
I said 'Tata Hexa: Official Review (Expected on....)' i.e. give a tentative date so that members do not keep on posting about review every now & then.

One Suggestion is to actually order which post got thanked in a way even if an old post is thanked, it comes on top of the view list.

It gives a kick when you see you made an useful contribution for something. Just a thought.

Guys, not sure if anyone else has this problem. I am seeing an extra box between the first and second posts on every page on the forum.

Me too, and it's not just between first & second posts. Happening on some pages between random posts too.

Guys,

We don't permit a discussion on ads, but just clearing up a doubt here.

Ads will serve on http & https, both. This particular ad has a frequency cap, so regular visitors won't see it all the time.

Thanks for the response.

I am a frequent visitor : 7 am - 3 pm on desktop (chrome browser) and 6 pm- 9 pm on app (old apk).
Not sure what is the logic implemented in the code.

I get the ads twice a week on desktop browser.
On app its is there all the time. Everytime I browse on app, there is an ad which covers 20% of my 5" mobile screen.

I understand the reason for ads.
Hence, not complaining, just highlighting.

Just as I suspected. Your company firewall is doing deep packet inspection of https traffic. Which means they can see everything you do from office connection, wired or wireless.

Team-BHP serves ads on both http & https, but your company is also capable of injecting anything they want since they are in between.

If not, the certificate will say it was issued by RAPIDSSL.

Thanks Samurai for the analysis. So does that mean that if I use http instead of https, the company firewall would not be able to do deep packet inspection ? I understand the company tracks all web usage. I do browse tbhp a lot at work and don't want them coming to me asking what is it I am browsing so much !

I don't suspect company injected ads, as this is a banking client and is a very secure environment.

I will do a check of my home laptop to see what is it showing over there.

Doing DPI on http traffic is too easy, obviously it will be done if they have taken trouble to do it on https.

That is the least of your worries. Your company potentially has the ability to log very sensitive information like online banking/trading passwords, personal email account access credentials etc.

Setting it up is way too easy nowadays and there are no legal protections in India (as far as I know) that prevents companies from doing this. You are SOL most likely if your netbanking password leaked because of this and you suffered financial consequences, for example.

If you go to your certificate store you'll find the CA that the company installed there.

Abit OT :
Dear members, please try to also put more realistic pics of cars (in reviews particularly). This corner angle, upward angle etc confuses poor souls like me.

When I read the Renault Kwid review I couldn't properly quantify the size of the car. Moreover many members kept telling it's got an SUV stance.

In real life when I saw it, it was like same size / a little bigger than Alto, just different design.

I know it's subjective & people have a right to their opinions etc, but please try to also put up some aam aadmi pics of the car. Like from a height of ~5ft, simple side angle (standing perpendicular to the car) & front angle, would be great! For creative freedom even photo effects are okay, but minimal.

Exclamation Is this a part of Team-Bhp?

I did a google search 'teambhp' and was surprised to see a website with a simiar name as Team-Bhp ending as the top searched result link. On clicking, it it was a 404. Any idea mods?
