Thank you, Rehaan, for clearing my doubts. I always kept on wondering if I am making the comments in the right posts.

GTO, I was wondering why a separate section when we already have one but one visit to the section & I know why

Btw is your Merc really for Sale or yo u testing the Classifieds sections

One Issue though with this change: I had a Subscription to the Market Place section, this allowed me to get a mail as soon as any Sale is put up. Could this be done for classifieds as well ?

Also what happens to those threads which were put up recently in Market Place ?

Just a test ad.

Issue solved. Once inside any classifieds section (Sedans, MUVs etc.), you will see a "Subscribe to Category" link on the top left. Click it and you are all set.

Closed and moved to Shifting Gears. They are welcome to create a new listing in the Classifieds section.

Hey,
i have a suggestion moderators,
How about adding the string of being able to search by user name in the TBHP Garage Section?
I know you can sort them alphabetically and have a look but it would be much more convenient

Thanks GTO, yes its proper buy/sell section so definitely better than before

Correction its on bottom left i.e. below the items list, top left only if no ads are present :-)

Also I am assuming this subscription is of "Instant E-mail Notification" type since it didn't ask for various options which are available for normal thread subscriptions.

Tried to Post an Advert & Wow the format is very user friendly. Kudos to the support staff :-)

I'd guess so.

My posts keep getting approved but my post count does not increase ?.

Plus many a times my posts were not approved and no reason stated and no notification given.

Also I get a notification of post approval sometimes ( I have a post count of 48 now with 5 approval mails in total) but most of the times its accepted without any notification ?

Mods can you please answer my queries

Well if you want to look for a particular BHPian's Garage you can always search for him in the Member List & then click on his Garage in his profile

Hi,

First of congrats on a job well done. I think there is some tiny glitch in the classifieds section. Once there I cant seem to get back to the main forum(home). If you click the home link it goes back to the same page. Is it just me facing this problem.

The Classifieds look great. One small detail might need to get added. An automatic query asked when a product is up for sale is Why? In that sense, "Reason for sale" row would be needed.

Jignesh, The home link is for classifieds home. Similarly all the links on that line are specific to Classified section.

The Bug is that the Team-BHP text on top left screen should be a hyper link to Forum index.

Thanks for the pointer Technocrat.
I think that i am facing a similar problem. My posts get approved without notification and once in a while i get notified.
Perhaps i get notified only when my post is confirmed while i am online.
i have noticed. Is this true?

Also i feel i must have posted more than my count shows but i cant confirm this part so :P

But still, all in all i feel its a job being handled well. Kudos to the moderators and support team for keeping this forum the way it is.

Hi akshat,

Please go through the "Post count policy" in the announcements section, it should answer some of your questions.

Viper & Techno,

We will look into making the text a hyperlink, but for now you may click on the TBHP logo on the top left, it will take you back to the forum listing.

Hey Technocrat,
just tried using your suggestion but it seems that there is no link to the member's garage in the profile. And no, its not a user who doesnt have a garage....

I even tried going to your profile as a test and there is no link to your garage. Is it just me or is this the way it is? You can try going to your own profile from the members list and have a look :P
