Question Re: Express your interest in a non road going subforum

Hi; I don't really understand how threads and forums operate ,but would all posts to any forum still show on new posts? I find a variety of items of interest{ except hydrogen} and learn much from the oddball threads.

Yes, new posts would still show as normal.

However, due to the increasing number of non road going builds if there were sufficient interest a new forum could be made and populated with most of the existing non road going threads and new threads would then be started in there in the same way as the other existing threads.
It would be similar to the EV Performance and Electric Bike forums but maybe nested as a sub forum of the All EV Conversions and Builds forum.

I have a great friend, who may not be here on the Forum yet, with a deep concern for ALL forms of post-fossil power. His site is http://www.solarcarandtractor.com/Home.html

so, I'll leave it at that since I do not have the time to delve beyond daily transportation (cars and bikes) at this time.....

Hi Pop,

It would just be an easier way for folks with non-road EVs to find threads of interest to them and to get responses from members with like interest. I am one of those folks. And it is very difficult for me to refer new posters back to previous threads concerning similar vehicles because those threads are mixed in with all the on-road EV cars. Like for example: Search for tractor.....you get every response Woody has ever made because he has tractor in his signature. All 2,653 of them

Regards,

major

if there is a particular Forum you want to follow any new posts on, check the 'thread tools' drop-down, if you want to watch an entire forum ofr new threads and replies, then back up one step and use the drop-down to be notified of any new posts in a forum...

the hierarchy is (one) forum-> (many) threads -> (many)posts

I don't think that is required. If it wasn't your sig, it would just be something else. And I like your tractor thread I was just using it as an example, not picking on anyone How many people actually search for tractor?

I agree on the non-road going sub-forum. Lots of great ideas to add to and learn from.

Here's a current thread which might fit the new subforum. Sounds non-road-worthy. http://www.diyelectriccar.com/forums...ad.php?t=54929

Cheers,
