Throwing a thread in here.

Thought I'd use up some space and make sure that this subforum works.

Check out CivicVX.com and leave me some constructive feedback here.

As always, it will be a work-in-progress working on progressing it.

Looks like that will be nice when you get her done.

SVOboy need to throw in a general discussion forum. For things like this or is this the purpose of the soap box forum?

TomO: awesome. What a resource that'll be!

Laz: I agree. Ben & I were talking about this. We need to tweak the forum categories a bit more. I'm with you and think we need a "general auto discussion" type forum, up with the other main ones.

Just coming up for air... I've been skinning my knuckles bloody working on the EM garage. Bit of a learning curve from what I'm used to. But it's coming.

I've been thinking about this and I think you are right that it should be labled "General Auto Discussion".

Looks like you're way ahead of me. Are you planning on making the site all about ECO improvements? I think if you open the forums up to general discussion you'll end up with a bunch of off topic political/social debates(really just name calling) that will just suck the life out of the site.

I'm with you on that. I personally don't care for the way OT stuff.

I don't mind where discussions turn political if they specifically relate to energy or transportation policy.

The guy who runs the EVDL runs it with an iron fist, and the result is a high quality list with a great signal:noise ratio. If it doesn't relate to EVs or how to build them, he shuts down the thread.

I wonder what Ben thinks of this...

I just have to say: I'm getting excited as EM launch day approaches.

I miss talking & learning more about this efficiency stuff.

I like the WAY OT stuff - but I don't think this sub-forum will get too much use until we are rolling a while.

You only like it because you probably won't participate in any of the ON topic stuff!
