Condor Am not sure if such a change could be done may be GTO can update but personally I have never seen such option on any other vBulleting board.

Condor, I have some very good news for you . If you want to:

1. Search Thread Titles only: Enter your query (e.g. Cedia) in the portal search box, that you will find right below the Red RS (BHP Silver & Black Skins). This will perform a title search without the need for you to go into advanced search mode.

2. Search entire posts: Use the forum search box, and then "show threads" or "show posts" as per your preference.

GTO, as can be seen from the image I've posted, I use the standard blue skin. Like many, I find this less conspicuous for use in office.

My point was directed to the search options available from the main menu bar since the Search forum > Show Posts option is not normally used much. I'm checking on the possiblity of substituting that feature with one that is used more.

For a while in between, I noticed that Mods were very active in preventing "spam" - as in people posting separate replies to separate posts on the same thread within the editing timeline & not using the multiquote feature.

However, of late, there has been a steep increase in certain threads where a lot of spamming is taking place, whether intentionally or unintentionally I'm not sure.

Please look into this aspect as the post count needs to go up uniformly for all. Please feel free to PM in case you need examples.

cheers:

Thanks

Please see the 2nd post in the thread on Advertising in the Announcements section.

Please use the REPORT POST button to report such instances.
(Do note that if the posts are >20mins apart, they are not considered as multiple consecutive posts.

Often, a post for the sake of posting. See this being done by a lot of people.

Hi Suman. As per the previous replies, please use the "report this post to a moderator" button for getting any such messages to our attention. With 19 of us screening 2,000 posts per day (on some days), inevitably some will pass through our filters. It would be great for the entire member base to support us in maintaining our firm stand on quality.

Also, can we have a separate ad category for ICE & Alloys & Wheels ? These - esp the ICE - are getting drowned amongst the other items in accessories section.

Just wanted to let you know that a separate ICE category has been created.

Hello Mods! Someone might have already raised this concern and if not, please check that after viewing Classified sections if am trying to check the BHP Garage I am getting the following errors.

Warning: require(/usr/www/users/rushabh/forum/classifieds/vbpicgallery.php) [function.require]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /usr/www/users/rushabh/forum/vbseo.php on line 1129

Fatal error: require() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/usr/www/users/rushabh/forum/classifieds/vbpicgallery.php' (include_path='.:/usr/local/lib/php') in /usr/www/users/rushabh/forum/vbseo.php on line 1129

Thanks in advance

Mods, is this a problem? I posted a reply on Sudev's 50000 km. update and on the main page, the same thread is under two different sub-forums.

no its not becuase long term is a sub forum of the reviews forum. and since it was the last replied thread in all the sub forums of the review forum and the long term section it would come under both.

Mods, why not consider a section for "to be launched in India" cars. Scoops and other info of the cars can be posted there. Once it is launched, either it can be locked or moved to the appropriate section.
