    "Technically" the xBhp police has all the powers that a super moderator has on xBhp, e.g., approving/closing threads, deleting posts, banning members, etc. However, the task ahead of the xBhp police is to maintain the law & order, i.e., performing the tasks that may attract negative feedback from the member/members. It has been observed by our moderators that if they ban somebody or remove their posts they are accused of being partial with somebody or misusing their powers even if their action was based on some valid reasons. And mostly, these kind of hostile reactions came from the 'senior' members.

    and remembe, moderators are just volunteers here, nobody wants animosity from anyone for a thankless job.

    So this dirty task of taking action was given to xBhp police.

    The police has barely acted upon its own, most of the time the action is taken only after a bad post is reported.

    i'd have disagree with you here bud...
    i've seen a few posts that were deleted for less than offensive reasons too.

    for Mr. xPoliceman... being anonymous, allowed him to misuse his "power"... in a few scenarios.

    it's safe to assume that the xPolizia is a duplicate ID of an existing mod.
    and it's actually really easy to find out who that is isn't it.

    keep guessing. Can't it be used by multiple mods/volunteers who want to remain anonymous? It could well be someone who you met during the last G2G

    i dont know if this is the right place to ask the Q but:-
    My sent messages dont get stored in the allocated folder. What could be wrong? Or am i missing something?

    never mind,, i figured out.
    I wasnt checking the 'save a copy of the message to my sent folders' option

    All members should abide by the guidelines mentioned below.

    Few live examples from the forum, which will help you understand and refrain from posting in the same manner.

    Eg 2 Provocative post or post which may hurt others sentiments
    Test driven cbr 250r yesterday and i wasn't much impressed personally.Because It felt too light.The brakes were pretty sharp.It felt more like riding a yamaha r-15 and its nowhere like a ninja, Ninja feels stable and rock steady,a feeling which i never get in yamaha r-15 and din't get in a CBR either.They r nimble bikes, easy to flick around in city traffic.CBR's pick up is better than ninja,but then i feel u don't need so much.Ninja's pick up is just right for our roads..And i definitely dont think a cbr comes anywer close to ninja in the looks department.CBR looks all fancy,Whereas a ninja looks mean .Basically if u like yr motorcycle light,sleek,flickableu'd like a cbr but if u like yr bike solid,stable and planted u'd love a ninja more.
    Seriously dude?

    Ok, so it's a crappy formatted post, but i don't see anything provocative in it. In fact both bikes' target audience is even mentioned. Not sure if this is a real example but does this mean a person can only talk about what bike he likes and not what he doesn't?

    Dear Mods,

    Many new and old members sometimes post false rumors as news in order to gain attention on the forum. They often mention a time period and nothing happens by that period, because the news itself was false...
    Their post sounds somewhat like this (fictional example):

    Guys, I just came back after talking with a senior Yamaha official and I can confirm that YZF250R is on its way to India, by around October 2011. and in fact, it is being tested around roads and we should be seeing spy pics soon.
    So, when by October or even by next year nothing happens, shouldn't action be taken against members who spread the info, specially if they're old members?


    And one more thing, why are suggestion topics never approved? The world ain't perfect and neither is Xbhp. So, why not talk on the subject on the sites (or facebook if you prefer it that way)?
    I recently suggested tieing up with IB website, but it never appeared?

    +1 for an excellent initiative. Much needed intervention after a long time. Lingo and slang terms are unfortunately flooded in every aspect of xBhp, if people just were to just realize that what they're posting is of use for someone miles apart.

    For an initiative like this, I guess the word needs to be spread. Moderators, why don't you guys make it visible in the front of xBhp webpage stating something as important message for all, so that it gets everyone's attention.

    I feel, just an excellent thread like this has high chances of going unnoticed.

    Thanks!
    Vijay
    Once upon a time, a guy asked a girl 'Will you marry me?'
    The girl said, 'NO!'


    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.


    THE END

    They do moderate such posts, they usually close threads until solid information is got about the launch. Till then you have the speculation thread. Also one of these 100 claims might turn out to be true hence it cannot be moderated.

    A fine example would be when a old member (forgot his name) speculated the launch of a new RTR (hyperedge), it dint see the light of day until a good 4-6 months later, till then the thread was closed.

    Xbhp did have a suggestion thread, but it turned out be a place for moderator bashing and stuff irrelevant to development of this site. And i dont think IBA, if that is what you are talking about, associates itself with other biking groups.

    Older members keep telling younger members about minding their language, i dont find so many posts with slangs/lingo. New members obviously will post like that but then they usually stop after being pointed out.

    There are only a handful of moderators but more than 100 or 1000 posts a day. Members like us should inform such erring members about forum rules. I've never seen anyone continue, if they do the moderators will act.
