Other Electric Cars & Plug-In Hybrids - time to re-org?

Sun Feb 16, 2014 12:22 pm

The Other Electric Cars & Plug-In Hybrids sub forum front page is almost entirely filled with stickies making it difficult to find any other topics - you have to go to page 2 to really find other topics. Proposed solutions:

1. Create dedicated sub-forums for popular EVs. Any current thread with more than 10 pages of posts might be worth splitting into it's own sub-forum. Of course, nearly all of the stickies fall under this category...

2. Un-sticky all the "Official" threads. Then the popular threads will stay near the top as people post to them.

3. Some combination of the above - Perhaps if we raise the threshold to say 25 pages, that keeps the number of sub-forums down to a reasonable number. Or perhaps instead of a sub-forum per vehicle, a sub-forum per brand?

Thoughts?

That's my preference - perhaps along with #1. I'll start unsticky-ing threads for cars that get to be more than a month or so old - or maybe when it becomes older than the oldest thread on page 2.

Thanks!

Would it be worth it to link to other EV forums right on the main page under the 'Other Electric Cars & Plug-In Hybrids'?
Or are subforums a better idea (like the regional section) so that people don't have to leave this forum for another one?

If we do find that a particular brand/car becomes popular enough to warrant more room, I personally would prefer a sub-forum. I don't need more accounts to log in to. If I really cared about that particular brand/car (eg, if I owned one), then I'd probably register/visit that particular forum.
