Default The official site suggestions thread

Can we start a suggestions section? I don't mean to be too presumptuous. I know I just got on this board today, but it would be nice to have a suggestions section.

Avatars are on now. As for the topics, I'm hesitant to create a bunch of detail forums until there's a need. How about let's say that when there is over 15 threads for a given topic, we'll create a new forum and move them over.

This is my first experience using a vBulletin forum, and I have to say, it's very functional. I like the rich text options, although I seldom use much more than the occasional <italics> and a very rare <bold> formatting.

Wondering if there is a Spell Checker plugin? I sincerely dislike posting spelling errors, and copy-pasting into Word is an extra step in the process. Since vBulletin tags each editied post with a time-stamp, it's less desireable to go back and edit ~after~ you read your flubs on the forum.

Smile Re: Some topic suggestions

I still think the FORUM needs structure, with catagories for each component/task involved in an EV conversion. This way when a person has a question regarding about something in particular, it's easy to go to that topic and look through the postings, or post a question for an answer.

EV Formulas

Battery Education

PWM Controllers

Contactor Controllers

Rectactor Controllers

Motors

Chargers

Battery Balancers

Instrumentation

Open Source Projects

Video's of EV's, Projects in progress, DIY Videos, etc.

Default What is the difference?

What's the difference between the "All About EV Conversions" board, and the "Technical Discussion" board?

In "Technical Discussion" you'll get dirty!

Forum Suggestion:

I notice that signature pictures are allowed if they are uploaded to the DIYEC server, but [ IMG ] tags are not allowed in signatures, allowing images to be displayed from a remote server. Assuming that our so-far small group didn't abuse this ability, I wonder if it's possible to turn the image tags on for signatures?
