    Congrats to Trevor, all the great moderators and users who keep this interesting. I started looking at several Model 3 sites about two years ago and this is the ONLY one I continue with, checking in every day. In general I find the discussions here more meaningful and the members here more passionate about Model 3

    I’m sure it’s The Model 3...

    There are a few Tesla forums (not sure if we’re allowed to mention them here...) I joined two others, one I dropped my activity almost immediately, it was far too fanboyish for me, just constant crooning and Elon-worshiping.

    The other I have been active in, but it’s a little combative and too many egos. There was a pretty vicious argument about the break differences between P3D and P3D-PUP... some people just don’t know when to say they don’t know!

    This forum I have found to be by far the friendliest and most supportive. So while the others might attract people quickly, your reputation for a welcoming and supportive forum will win a lot of people over.

    My 2 cents...

    Thanks @TrevP for pouring your heart and soul into Tesla, EVs in general, and always doing what’s right. You have made a big impact on me. I’m glad we all have a place to chat about the ups, downs and everything in between!

    I was going to reply with something to this effect, but didn't want to take that away from you ;)

    So very happy to have found this forum and become a part of it. I appreciate everyone’s contributions and comments, and most importantly the kindness and hospitality shown to everyone by everyone. I’m especially thankful for the tolerance given to an overgrown child like myself when attempting to make jokes and keep things light...though usually way off topic!

    Thank you to @TrevP, all the mods, @garsh @MelindaV @Michael Russo @SoFlaModel3 (am I missing any? Also...alphabetical order, not playing favs! ;) ), all the posters, past and present, that make this place my “social media” fix that I frequent probably way too many times throughout the day and post, read, and lurk.

    Best wishes to all and many happy electric miles/kilometers to come!

    I am really happy that this site has kept the friendly vibe that Trevor set out for it to be.
    When I found M3OC when my reservation was just over 24 hours old, I also started following along with Tesla's forum, TMC and the R/Tesla. This is really the only one that I go to at all any more. One of those others I found way too a-holeish, one a pita to navigate thru (or post for that matter) and the other mostly reposts of things I'd already seen elsewhere. this is the only one I really have had much interest in any real participation and conversation.
    So thanks to you all that have hung out here too, and for putting up with the Mods shuffling your posts to another forum/thread, telling you to not be jerks and to otherwise follow the rules ;)

    I've created and grown many forums, some of them #1 in their category, so I can really appreciate the work that goes into this.

    Keep up the great work, and congrats to the mod team for jelling so well :)

    For Tesla beginners like me, there are lots of hope and peace here.
    I already have been waiting for a long time and I still need a lot of waiting time.
    To tell the truth, I have some uneasiness with Tesla.
    However, as there was this place, I can enjoy the waiting time.
    Even now and future.
    I am looking forward to posting pictures of my delivery at here.
    I am sorry that I am not good at English.
    Thank you so much everyone every day.
    I appreciate your kind of continued support:)

    You have @Michael Russo to thank for that. He set an incredibly friendly tone right from the beginning. It was such a breath of fresh air. So we all do our best now to keep it that way. :)

    A well-deserved toast to @TrevP and all the mods!
    This forum remains the most friendly and welcoming of all Tesla social media.
    Buckle in, because it's still just the beginning!

    I don't know if it's the moderation team or just that everyone here seems to be pretty damn awesome but this is the least-troll-y, most on-topic gathering I've seen. Great work everyone

    There is a lot of good stuff here. It truly is crazy how fast it has changed. Someone posted a picture from the Tesla site from just a few months back that showed the 3 date ranges, First Production, AWD, and SR. I think that was the 3 dates, I can't be 100% sure, and to be honest, that seems like eon's ago. Things really fly around here regardless of how long it seems some wait for a car.

    @TrevP or one of the Mods should document the beginnings. The idea of the forum, selecting mods, how you each came to know each other. I jumped on the Model 3 train day one, and looked for articles and news along the way, but never thought about a forum like this until late 2017 when things started becoming more real. I missed out on good chat, speculation and lots and lots of waiting.
