New Members - Posting Help

Recommended Posts

Using the search feature in the forum itself gives a lot of useful info, and you may find many of your questions have been asked and answered before. Searching before posting may prevent a number of repetitive threads and would simplify your questions too.

The forum search box is circled in red

Also you could use the tag site:autolanka.com your question here in Google to search through the forum.

As many new members seem to be unaware of forum rules, hope Peri would post them here. For now, the most violated rule seems to be as of recent times --

Advertising of any form is NOT allowed on the forum

I'm also new to Auto Lanka.com. I was also trying to find help link still couldn't find.

1.I want to know, what are these member title? (Newbie, chief bottle opener members etc...)

2. what are the warning points?

3. Any other way to post through a tablet as less options found in typing window.

4. What are those highlighted posts, that you can see once you entered a main topic group ?

5. What will happen if we post on an old thread when it located deep page in a group? (Sometimes those topics are not been followed by anyone).

6.How are those points in profile, calculated?

Thanks.

Welcome. It's nice to see a newbie who wants to blend into the culture rather than rock the boat with bad attitude.

1) I think you go from newbie to member after a 100 posts or something like that. But none of us actually care about that.

2) Warnings are given by the moderators if you misbehave. If your warning level goes too high they will ban you. But you have to be a real a$$hole for that to happen. Your warning is only seen by you (and the moderators MADZ, Periclies, The Don, Supra_Natural).

3) I guess that depends on your browser and tablet

4) The highlighted threads are the ones that have had new posts since you last read/visited it.

5) The thread you posted on will goto the top of the "New content". Normally you bring up an old thread if your question is very similar in nature to that thread, and can help give context or additional help for someone who reads it in the future one day.

6) Each post has a Up/Down button on the bottom right corner. It's a rating. So everytime someone rates you "Up", your points get a +1. And likewise if someone rates you "Down" you get -1. But honestly, that too is a general indicator only, and people's perception of you is based on what you say/do rather than your 'points'.

Hope you enjoy your stay!

Thanks Watchman. That feels as a green light for me.

Regarding 3. I'm using Toshiba tab with android 4.0 and chrome browser, it worked with Facebook but when I type here I can't separate sentences with "enter" key. It shows correctly when typing but when it post they're seen together. The above statement 1,2,3.... Typed separately but seen as above. This is Just to inform.

Im bumping this thread up due to the plethora of new members who have joined autolanka to look for 1000cc options.

Please note that if you are seeking what car to buy advice, please let us know your requirements.

An example for a good question is:

I am looking to buy a 1000cc hatchback car which can carry 5 family members and I normally drive 500km per month. I prefer good fuel economy but can compromise on comfort.

Examples for poor questions are:

1. Should I buy a 1000cc Vitz or Baleno? - no requirements given

2. I need a car that is powerful, good fuel economy, comfortable, cheap to maintain and has good resale value - you cant have everything from one car

3. Should I buy BMW 520D or 318M Sport? - not an apples to apples comparison

Also please don't ask us to choose a car for you. You wouldn't ask your friends to choose your life partner. Expect us to give advise to help you choose. At the end, it's your decision.

Oh... if you seek our advise, you cant compare that with what car sale guys say. This is like going to a kattadiya to seek treatment for arthritis. If you wish to take kattadiya's treatment, don't come to us.
