Images posted on Team-BHP are hosted on several different photo sites (depending on where the member has uploaded it).
- Imageshack.us
- photobucket
- smugmug
- etc

Chances are that your network / firewall / country or something is blocking a few of those sites.
When you reach a post that should have pictures in it, but you cant see them. Click the "quote" button and see the addresses mentioned, which should indicate which site is being blocked / causing trouble.

Rehaan is right, even in my office I am unable to view images hosted on most of the image sites including Imageshack. The only exception being photobucket.

Every time I login it goes back to main page Team-BHP - The Definitive Indian Car Community which is annoying. I want it to return to the page I was viewing prior to login.

And can we have a small icon along with our avatar to know which car we use? Something like that..

Ok, the new classifieds section needs tweaking. Firstly, can it be a default option that the person posting a for sale or wanted ad gets a PM or e-mail automatically when someone replies to their ad? There are too many threads in which people ask for more information and the seller / buyer just disappears, presumably because he doesn't check that exact thread again. I know this option exists, but can it be made the default?

Question: For picture heavy posters like me, is there a limit to the number of pictures uploaded?

2nd Question: Will images only be displayed as thumbnails, or is it possible to have full sized images as part of the text?

3rd Question: Are we no longer allowed to use imageshack and photobucket?


Note: In relation to https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/announcements/36475-uploading-photographs-directly-team-bhp.html

Sorry, but we have an option to go back to the page you were viewing, only after "logging out". Why don't you first login upon reaching Team-BHP?

This option already exists. When creating an ad, set the "Want to be notified by email when users post replies?" option to YES.

If you want to subscribe to an ad that has already been created, click the "Receive Email Updates" link that is displayed with each ad.

No limit. As long as you don't use up the entire 250 GB hard disk that we run Team-BHP off

Only thumbnails.

Yes. Please use only the attachment function to upload your pics. The problem with imageshack is that photos expire after one year of use. There are so many old threads around, where the pictures don't display anymore.

Picture uploading is yet a new area for us. You can expect updates / improvements with time.

A "lite" version of the forum to allow for easier browsing via mobile phones would be nice. I think this feature is supported by vbulletin.

Hi Chetan, the capacity was increased only recently, upon a request in this thread itself.

Of course it is. Each seller can mark his listing as sold. Do you not see that option for an ad of yours?

Checking it out, spadival. But I can't promise as we like to keep the hack list at a bare minimum.

What I meant was that as you say, it's "Off" by default. Can it be made "On" by default? Not everyone looks at all the options when placing an ad.

Yes, we have already included that in the things-to-do over the next upgrade.

If no one has already suggested it, I think adding further sections in the "ICE, Accessories & Parts" section of the classifieds would be useful.

For example, when you click on "ICE, Accessories & Parts" you can see further categories like

1. Wheels / Tyres
2. ICE
3. Performance mods
4. Styling mods
5. Others.

I feel this will be useful since there are a large number of items there (50), and looking through them all takes time.
