For Parents:
The way like minded people meet in a community gathering, say an Apartment Asociation or a Lions Club, Team-Bhp is a community for Automobile Enthusiasts who interact virtually through Internet.

I follow the same approach.

To Tech Savvy - Automobile forum
To Parents & Others - Car Club (to put it in simple words)

A colleague saw the Team-BHP stickers on my car and asked me what is Team-BHP ? Is it a sticker making company ?

I told him that Team-BHP is an online community of automobile enthusiasts. Members sport Team-BHP stickers on their ride, it gives us a sense of pride to be a part of such a community. He found the concept too difficult to digest.

He was really shocked to see me waving at complete stranger on the road. (when I spotted a member with Team-BHP sticker on his Jeep)

Guess what, this guy has even purchased Team-BHP stickers for covering the scratches on his car which have happened because of his rash driving.

In which case, please dissuade him from sticking them on his car. Will make it difficult to explain to people that the website we spend so much time on isn't actually a group of rash drivers, and is actually a forum of people who love their cars to bits and pieces.

Its his car and his stickers, how can I prevent him from using them ?

My personal opinion is that stickers should be available only to members, but the fact is that stickers can be purchased even by non-members, who have no idea about what the community stands for. Thats why so many rash drivers are reported who have Team-BHP stickers on their rides.

Default Disqualified....

Fortunately for me, the awareness of team-bhp is quite high amongst my friends and family (because of my incessant ranting and raving!)

If you have the time, I have the evidence right here!! (be patient to scroll down to the end) -

Good one. Clever Daughter You made it quite obvious.

@Topic - The word "Discussion community" helps me a lot. I don't emphasise on automobiles because there is much more than automibles here for every age group.
