    Hello there everyone,

     
    The Autocar Forum is a year old. And, I'd like to thank everyone for their support through the months in helping this forum grow. We have been really happy with the way things have gone till now. Lot of members, lot of posts and a lot of information. We have crossed more than 1,600 members and closing in on 35,000 posts. With this kind of activity, the forum requires active moderation around the clock which is why our support team has grown with the addition of the latest moderator - Cyrus43. The team now comprises of FRG, 325i, Zander and Cyrus43. All the Support team introductions will be made in this thread. Lets start with mine.
     
     
    FRG - My real name is Manish Sarser. I currently drive a Tata Safari Dicor 3.0 and Honda City Vtec. Have lived in Bombay most of my life, but originally from Delhi. I joined Autocar in September 2006. Back then, my main job was to handle all the fuel efficiency tests and do research for the articles that were printed. I am also doing the investigative articles for our sister magazine WhatCar? Some of you may have wondered how I came up with my username....well doing fuel efficiency tests was a major part of my job so hence the name. Well thats all for now. Hoping that members go by the rules and regulations so that we don't have to work overtime. Thanks to all members, Its great to be here.

    Hello all,

    The Autocar Forum is growing by leaps and bounds since it started. I've always said that the forum is as good as the quality of its members and you are responsible for what we are today, so as a token of gratitude, I have created a special category for forum members who have provided us with brilliant posts and helped out many members with their problems.
    These select few members will now have a 'Special License' tag to their profile. They will have access to seperate section of the forum called 'Special License Holders Discussion Board' where they can exclusively have discussions. They will also be able to upload images and files directly to the forum and not via imageshack.

    The members who have been awarded the Special License are:

    Of late I've been noticing, the forum is being flooded with a lot of frivilous posts and threads. And it is not only the new members but many active and old members who are also responsible. The least I expect from the members is to atleast do a search before they post up.

     
    There are so many similar threads and posts floating about the forum which makes the task of the support team harder everyday. Members are creating threads without even thinking. How does a car query end up in the bikes section is beyond me. I urge all the members to take time out before posting and creating new threads.
     
    From now on, please be informed, I will personally delete any post which I find unfit and non-value adding without any prior warning. Similar threads will not be merged, but deleted. Please help us keep this community clean and user friendly. Thanks.
