Ok, now im sure that the posts are not being credited.
This time i kept in mind the no. of posts which was 26 and then made a post here:
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/gadget...s-etc-120.html (The Digital Camera Thread: Questions, discussions, etc.)
They have been accepted and added to the thread but i did not get any notification of the post being approved and nor has my post count gone up.
Its still at 26.
Moderators, please check out this situation. Thank you.



Mod's Note: Posts made in Shifting Gears and in any subforum under it are not counted towards your post count. System is behaving in its intended fashion.

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
Click the "View my garage" link that you see under the members avatar wherever they have posted. (eg. look at techno's post)

At the moment the garage link from the members profile page is not functioning, but the point has been raised before and has been noted.

Can we add another rule to the Classifieds section. Can we stick to a strict format atleast for the title like

Year Make Model Engine Variant(if any) and Trim Level.

For example instead of writing Carb Zen LX 1999 model one will have to stick to 1999 Maruti Zen Carb LX

IMO it would make things a lot more uniform and easier.

Mods, when I change the skin to either of the new ones (hallowYellow / Centra / Saville / Cyclic), in the home page, the Last post section is misaligned left & right across the Forums.

The alignment is fine with Standard Blue & Red though.

Hi Viper

We will add a forum home link to the classifieds in due time. In the meanwhile, click on the Team-BHP logo to come back to the forums.

Fantastic and thank you! This field has been added to the sale form.

Khanak, As much as I would like to, I don't see too many people sticking to the rule. That and the fact that the burden on us support members will increase exponentially.

Whatever fields are important have already been included in the form. As long as the title is sufficiently indicative of the product, no problem.

That is not really out of alignment, but was intended by the skin designer to break the monotony. That is how it will show is most fluid skins (full screen irrespective of screen resolution).

I do a lot of surfing on my phone. Everything works fine, but I can't start a new thread, because "Post a new thread" option is available only in a .. errr.. javascript pull down menu under "Forum tools", which does not work in plain-HTML browsers.

It would be nice to have a "Post a new thread" link more readily available. I can use almost every other feature from my phone.

I may be wrong, but I think a good number of members have posted threads from their phone. And its not available only as a javascript option. Go to any forum listing and you will see the new thread button.

GTO,

For the automobile sections could it be an auto-generated title from the following fields? >

GTO, maybe someone has already mentioned this, but there is no Bikes section in the classifieds.

Is this an oversight or you didn't want a bikes classifieds.

Will require some modifications. But sure, lets keep it on the pending work list. We can attack it in stage two of the upgrades.

Thanks for the headsup! Will have it updated.

But let me tell you why this is happening. The red skin was mated to a far older version of our forum software. Since then, we have upgraded our forum specs several times, but unfortunately, the red skin was not that popular (globally) and its developers never released newer versions to keep up with later developments. Considering how so many of our members had taken a liking for this skin, we took it upon ourselves to keep modifying and make it work with the upgrades. To tell you honestly, it has been a cause of significant headaches

Compare that to the newer skins which are a simple import job (45 minutes tops).

Not my area of expertise. Rehaan will answer your question.

Intentional, epyupc. Let some traffic build up on the classifieds, and we will add a bike section as well.

GTO, so it's a feature! but some sections are too aligned to the right, is it possible to have consistent alignment like in Standard blue & red? I prefer the monotony
