I completely understand some of the concerns with the redesign and it’s always been my intention to do what is best for the members on here.
However, I felt that the forum needed to evolve a little, just as it has been doing since day one back last summer. The current audience is a very niche audience, and whilst in some instances this can be a good thing, I just felt that we needed to open the site up to a slightly wider audience which would hopefully result in more members, more discussions, and more expertise overall.
The Twizy still has it’s own section which is exactly the same as it’s always been, except for the fact that I’ve moved more EV generic topics to their own part of the forum which I think makes sense in the long run.
Julianh, why do you say this change will drive users to another forum? All of the Twizy information is still here, and if anything it’s better organised and easier to find. The same members are here having the same discussions.
I do get where Bassflex is coming from with the name, but it’s still very early days. Please don’t forget, I’m a one man band who has a full time job. I run this website in my spare time and I have to continue to try and improve the site in my spare time. Some people mentioned that the site was becoming quite slow. I got it sorted and moved the site to a new server within two days. I do this for the members here who find this site useful, and my only intention is to make this site as useful as it can be to as many people as possible.
However, if the majority of you feel quite strongly about keeping the site exclusively for the Twizy, then it is something I will think about and I can maybe look at other ways of evolving the site without introducing different cars. As always, if anybody has any suggestions, please post them and let me know.
