This is because your last 3 posts have been in threads in the 'shifting gears ' section. Posts made here do not contribute to overall post count.

No such plans, buddy. Period. Travel is interesting, whether domestic or international and BHPians do contribute with some beautiful travelogues.

It would also lead to less exposure for those international travelogues. Can cite the 'beyond borders' vintage car section as an example; hardly anyone sees the threads in there.

Noted. We have a half-baked solution on similar lines already coded, but somehow it never was prioritised.

No ways! Reported Posts are as much a contributor to forum quality as a regular post on the public forum is.

It's a good idea to thank the Moderator who takes a thread live as it does require some effort (I usually thank all such posts). Plus, many times, the Mod also adds his own reply within this post itself.

Done . Let's have more recommendations for online players, and then we'll create a new section. On Team-BHP, forum sections usually follow the content. There has to be enough existing content for that new section.

Done. We'll make one on this as well as safety sometime in the future.

Very unique idea - will consider if we get a reliable data supplier.

For privacy reasons, I wouldn't like my car's number to be available publicly and I'm sure it's the same for a lot of other BHPians too.

Yeah, it's an expandable ad. Please cope with it for a little time .

I dont know if its been suggested earlier or not, can we have a dedicated button on each post to mark it favourite or "starred" as in watsapp?

Because AFAIK our profile only allows subscription of threads. It will be useful if we can mark some informative posts favourite and can visit those later directly from our profile.

Thanks.

Please change this icon to something more pleasant. It feels odd if this is used for something in a friendly way.

We could do with a red-face embarrassed icon too. At least... I could! <Red-Face>

Pardon me if this has been discussed or suggested before, but can there be news updates on weekends too?

Correct me if I am wrong or missing something, but from what I have observed, the news section is not updated on Saturdays and Sundays.
We have to wait till Monday or refer other sites to know about the happenings in the automotive-world.

By Monday the news is too old to be of any real value and thus we miss many important updates.

As the leading automotive forum in the country, i think this is a huge drawback that only our forum has, as far as news updates on weekends is concerned.
And frankly speaking, I don't know the real reason for these 2 dry days of Team-Bhp every week.
Sorry for my ignorance, but can someone tell me the exact reason?

I would like to humbly suggest that it'd be great if the search option in the teambhp app, could somehow show more results.

For e.g., if I type in "Injector" and search, I get zero results ! Now what I have to do is go back to google, search for "injector, teambhp" and then once it shows me the thread, I look for the path, come back to the App and search for the path and then get on to reading .

So while the app is already amazing as it could be, this little tweak would surely help us

Youjust stole my words.

But on a serious note, request mods to please look into enhancing app experience.

Also, for some reason, whenever I play embedded YouTube videos on the thread, the app crashes. I have to switch to web view to watch the same. I am using iOS app. Not sure if it's only me facing the issues.

Many times, some images that I upload are seen upside down in the posts. Our helpful mods rectify it soon after I report the post. However, I feel it would be useful if the mods share how to avoid this in the first place so that I can take care of it myself from now onwards

As the mods have said many times before in this thread, the app is no longer supported by the developers. So don't expect any updates on that front.

Better option is to use the Web version on your mobile browser. That's the one that gets regular updates and does not hog space on your phone. I use only that and I love it

Not sure if this is a bug.

Recently I observed that even after checking the last post on a thread (Say from the Subscribed threads link) and later you reload the URL the bold highlighting of the thread title still remains. Earlier it would switch back to regular font indicating that the thread has not been updated after you visited it.

Does it make sense to have a thread to talk about the Fixed Deposit rates across various banks at various stages through the year? With the FD rates moving down, it will be good to know where to invest for those who look at the traditional modes of investment.

Is there an issue with the Inbox function in the App? I am unable to access my inbox through the mobile app and it keeps showing loading but is unable to load the inbox. I tried re-installing the app but it didn't help. Even tried using the app on a different phone but the same problem occurred. Any fixes for this?

There are many threads which either mention a problem with the car or the owner. Once the same is solved, the topic of the thread changes to "Edit:SOLVED" as well. But one has to go through many pages of discussion in order to reach the solution post.

It would be great if along with changing the thread name, the link to the solution post is also added to the opening post.


Regards,

Pawan

Isn't it better if the page number where the solution is mentioned be added into the thread title just after "SOLVED" so readers can go to that page directly.

No point in cluttering the opening​ post. What say Sir?!
