Should we add more categories/sub-categories to the forum?

@Pradeep,

My full attention is towards forums these days. Don't worry. Will go off the forum only when all the suggestions are implemented. Have compiled a twenty-point to-do list for forums alone. Then there are photos, user reviews and so on. 


On a lighter note and slightly off the topic : I recently saw the movie " Dus Vidaniya".. Protagonist (Hero) of the  film makes so many "To Do List".. @Ban this is not to offend you , Just by seeing the word "to-do list"  I remembered that movie.

@Pradeep,

Offtopic: Yeah, just finished watching Dasvidaniya. What a movie! As far as the similarity between protagonist and me is concerned; he used to make a to-do list daily while this is something that I rarely do. I make to-do list when I am fed up of myself. When I think 'enough is enough'!

Don't worry, this to-do list will be completed too, just the way Amar Kaul did in the movie. 20/20.

It will only cause inconvenience to the askers, as the askers normally have queries on all these aspects/items - while buying/finalising a particular car.  As such, spares, tyres, accessories etc. are basically same category.

 

Besides, if separated (as suggested), this would also lead to posting of wrong queries in the wrong sections - resulting in confusion & intermingling of different items (though same category) - in different threads.

I have got few more suggestions
1- Subscription to a thread option can be added on the Right corner of each thread
2- Can We have something like :" Similar threads", What I am trying to say is that If a new user/Reader is  going through a thread , some Similar Threads may also be displayed on the same page somewhere may be on the bottom,
 as Title " SIMILAR THREADS"
or
May be something like " People who has seen this thread has also seen these threads "
This will increase Interest of the user

@Pradeep,

 

1) It is presently just below the reply box / above the quick reply tab we click to post.  I feel it is appropriately placed - so that it will not go unnoticed.  As such, it's selected/marked as default option - only if you unmark the box, you will not receive the mail-alerts.

 

If you are referring to My subscribtions... it, according to me, is rightly placed on the top of the thread/page along with New Posts, Recent Posts etc.

 

2) I think you have suggested this before & it may have been taken into consideration suitably.

Pankaj,
My 1st Point was adding a tab/button for " Subscribe to this thread" may be on top right side of the thread title , Presently If one sends reply then only he can be Subscribed, and that it is positioned on the bottom , So it is not noticed properly .This I have suggested somewhat similar in another thread. but not exactly the same.
But second point is suggesting  "Similar Threads" to user/reader, if a user is going through one thread of buying swift we may suggest few more links to user.

Sorry, I mistook that.  Banwari has already taken note of it, and is likely to be included in the changes forthcoming.

One more suggestion came to my mind : Can we have a section in Carwale Forum as " Most usefull threads" or " Most Read Threads" . This will help the new users very much and even this may help the old users also .

What I was trying to point out not hot discussions and latest posts , But " Most useful threads" which moderators can decide or "Most Viewable threads" on the basis of no of views by the users.

In my opinion 1st one will be better option as a new user can not go through all the discussions and there may be very old thread which very very useful but may not be noticed by users/readers

True - that serves the purpose in a way.  But I think Pradeep is probably suggesting that we should have these in the forums itself - 'Most useful thread' & 'Most read threads'. 

It is not a bad idea. Let's see - Banwari is following all such suggestions.

Collections of popular threads can be done. But I will take some time to get it implemented.

Related discussions, we can definitely work upon. it's on my to-do list. Let me talk to the team.

Thanks for the suggestion, Pradeep.
