Hi @TrevP. Far be it from me to tell you how to run your site, but... well, I guess it's not far gone from me, because I want to tell you how to run your site. :)

Just a few suggestions on renaming/rearranging the subforums. Feel free to ignore.

Under General Forum:
  • Introductions - Can we move this towards the bottom of the list? I think the "Tesla", "Electric Vehicles", and "Charging & Infrastructure" subforums deserve to be listed before this one.
  • Tesla (TSLA) Investor Discussions - How about just renaming this to be more generally about all of Tesla? When I want to post news about Tesla that isn't necessarily about investing, there's currently no good place to put it. It could go here.
I find that the Important Info category isn't really all that important. I have to scroll down before I get to the juicy Model 3 section that I read daily. I'd like to get rid of it altogether, and move the subforums as follows:
  • Announcements - can we move these to the Site Feedback subforum, as pinned threads? Maybe rename that forum to Site News and Feedback?
  • Tesla Supercharger Map - move this to the Links section.
  • Electric Vehicle Chargers Ontario Map - move this to the Links section.
WDYT?

My '5 cents worth':
Some good ideas I'd go along and support... with couple of comments:
- Can live with Introductions being moved though it still feels right upfront for new members
- I would caution against an excessively generic renaming of the Tesla (TSLA) Investors as you suggest, @garsh , as it may make it less clear as to what the scope is...
- like most of your suggestions for 'Important Info' content with one caveat, now thaf Trev posted our forum rules in there, those are important and should not fall down to the basement... :)
In any case, M3OC remains a real treat! :cool:

Thanks for the suggestions @garsh

I'll go over some of them and do the ones I feel will help. Announcements will stay at the top however since that is where I need to put site and group-related news.
