I've been meaning to write this for a while but was waiting to get tenured.

I feel the TeamBHP forum has a major limitation. A limitation of lack of diversity, Gender diversity. Our forum needs more women members. I am not sure how many women are active in the forum but we definitely need to hear their views.

Women today are a large percentage of drivers (and buyers too) and much more in urban areas. They use cars for various purposes which often are different from men - errands, shopping, kids and of course work. Their views on cars and what they perceive to be important features could be interesting.

A lot of discussion on the forum is about performance, road presence, image of cars etc but in today's world of practicality, safety and clean air it would benefit all of us to have women share their experiences and views here.

The mistakes that are commonly committed elsewhere are regularly seen in this forum as well. For example, the usages such as "since two years", "your" instead of "you are", "I and so and so" have become common. Just like the unruly traffic around us, I have learnt to adapt and let them be.

I should first congratulate the Moderator and the administrators for the excellent job they are doing. Building a huge community of unknown faces and getting them abide by pre set rules is an achievement in itself. I think, despite these set of rules (which takes some time to get familiar with), the one thing that keeps our posts flowing is the love for automobiles. I would like to pin point here the brotherhood which prevails in the community (Altroz test drive cars was a classic case to highlight this point). Coming from the media industry, I understand the importance of content curation and you guys are doing your best to keep the forum lovely and lively.

I am assuming you are pointing towards an incorrect usage of the English language. Or is it something else? If it is about the usage of English language, we will need to understand that as a country we are native English speakers and, therefore, it may not be right to expect "proper English" grammar all the time. This is not to mean that usage of slang or other rules applicable to the forum should not be implemented. But maybe just understanding where the person is coming from may help us understand.

I think you mean English is not our native tongue. But ended up saying the opposite.

We can all learn by reading the posts of others, by observing how they use the language and correct/polish our own skills. The learning process and exchange of views need not be about automobiles alone.

I feel spelling and grammatical errors should not be glossed over, and that this quality policy is necessary. This is what makes going through the forum a pleasure.

You are right Gansan. I missed a "not" there.

Also, I agree with your point about learning through observation. The suggestion was just that the errors that one sees could be due to a person not knowing the correct usage.

Team-bhp is an automobile forum and a lot of political discussions are taking place here too. Today, I was going through a particular member's profile. The profile has made 87 posts on various issues but only one or two was related to automobile and the remaining 98 percent was not related to automobiles. In my opinion, it's better to have some rules to restrict posts from such members or to remove those members who has no interest in automobile related topics.
