Sometimes, after a year, if the same thread is visited for research purposes by members or non members intending to purchase that vehicle or to check out the resolution, it takes a bit of effort especially when there are 30 to 40 pages to browse.

Kindly remove this post in case, this has been discussed before.

Thanks
I would suggest a slight change to what you recommend here - instead of including the page number, include the post number.

The reason i suggest this instead of page number is because different members have different settings for number of posts per age; and therefore what I see on page 13 might be different for you - you might see it on page 24 or 25 if you have fewer posts per page in your setting.

Cheers

Unfortunately this is the drawback of the post approval system.

Mods do what we can to approve posts as fast as possible, hopefully making this less of an issue / a rare issue!

Me too, and vbulletin even had a "threaded" reply option, though it was never used as default.

This is a really good idea!

Almost like a "This post has been thanked by X, Y, Z"
> "This post has been quoted in X, Y & Z's posts".

Have made a note of this, though it's a "wishlist" functionality.

Would love to, but we'd need to devise a system to measure (how / from where / which position, etc) and it would be rather complex to ensure an overall accurate and fair output. When on test drives, we really don't have a lot of time to do this.

Also, sometimes non-measurable factors affect space (eg. a scoop or curve here, an intruding armrest there). So as a result, the qualitative description of space we provide does work rather well.

This doesn't sound right.

On what skin / where are you clicking "Last Page"?

Is your forum post viewing order "Newest post first" or "Newest post last"?

Also, are you logged in whilst doing this?

Sure thing. If the title isn't too long, and the thread isn't too short, then we can do so.

Feel free to Report Post for the relevant thread, and the mods will take care of it.

I see what you're saying, but saying "Post #372" means the user will have to do some math to figure out which page to go to!

I'd say a huge majority of users use the default settings - so specifying a page number is usually how we do it (or a direct link to the relevant post within the first post ).

Done.

This should be fixed

Please let me know if you see the same issue on any future mails from Team-BHP!

Hi,

under the "Travelogue" section and its sub-section "Route / Travel Queries" : can we further compartmentalize in "Round The World" or "Cross Country". I believe it would be very easy to navigate in such specific RTW/CC sections. Im sure such travels are gaining popularity, including a small bug in myself!

BTW, the reason I didnt mention to separate into "Domestic / India" and "International", because Team-BHP though has its Indian origin, is actually domestic to each member & viewer across the world, kudos.

regards,
Pranav

Not sure if this has been brought up before.

Could we consider doing away with the "flogging a dead horse" icon? It is very graphic with the blood etc.

While I'm not a big PETA enthusiast, this repeatedly caught my attention due to its graphic nature. I thought that it was just me, until my wife who was looking over my shoulder recently also shuddered looking at it.

Thanks!

Agree. Not for those reasons though, but because it is not used correctly 90% of the time.

Mea Culpa.

The following quote is completely off topic for this thread. But nevertheless, here it is:

Quote:

Definition of Beating a Dead Horse :

Wasting time by trying to accomplish something that is already finished.

This expression is typically used when people keep trying to solve a problem, usually through a discussion or an argument, that has already been solved. A variation of this expression is flogging a dead horse. Flogging is a synonym for beating.

Origin of Beating a Dead Horse


This idiom originates from a literal meaning in which a horse owner or rider would hit a horse to make it go faster. However, if the horse were already dead, no amount of beating would make it move. Likewise, if a decision has already been made, no amount of discussing it will change it.

This expression and its variation first started appearing in writing in the latter half of the 1800s.

This has been suggested a few times, but we think there's probably a better way to arrange the travelogues? Just splitting it into India / Elsewhere doesn't really add maximum value in terms of organization.

Will try to remove the blood from the GIF...

Team-Bhp can consider doing official comparison of the best cars in each segment. The best cars can be selected by creating a poll for the above purpose or they can be selected by the moderators. The auto mags usually crown the newest car in the market as the winner for economic interests. This is where I feel Team-Bhp can step in.

Sorry that was rather outdated! Have removed it.

Yes, this has been brought up quite a few times, and it's something we'd love to do -- but unfortunately we're really limited by time and logistics.

Hey Rehaan! Have you thought about adding an anti-slip/anti-skid mats as merchandise? I am sure it would be simply awesome to have the LTD, GBHP and IDS embossed on a black mat on our dashboards. I am sure you could visualize it and maybe we could help in designs if necessary.

PS - I am not sure if this post belongs here. I tried searching the forum with keywords such as merchandise, goodies, suggestions for merchandise, etc., but all were irrelevant. Please move as necessary.

First thought: If T-BHP did it, they would do it well, with materials that actually work. That would be good.

Second thought: Something embossed could be good, but wouldn't want anything with colour as windscreen reflection is not welcome.

If T-BHP is going to go down this sort of path, then the world's best phone holder would be a winner!

Exactly and that is why I'd suggested.

Agreed! But I am sure there is a way out. Consider this merchandise from T-BHP and its quality. Color doesn't always have to be too bright and colorful. I just want to see the LTD font in yellow on a black mat. The mat material could possibly be blended with 'felt sheet' to avoid glare. LTD glaring on screen is alright
Even our plain dashboards reflect themselves on windscreen. I suppose many of us have adapted to this glare while driving by many workarounds.
To me, a non-reflective film on windscreen would do the trick if necessary.
Moreover the anti-skid/anti-slip mats could be placed strategically in each of our cars' dashboard
