Green Car Congress is launching a new forum section for the community of GCC readers to post and to discuss developments in energy, transportation, and sustainable mobility not covered on the main GCC site: research and ideas, questions, analysis, reactions to current events, and whatever else strikes your fancy.
My hope is that these discussions will be heavy on content and light on invective. I have not yet formalized rules of engagement for this forum; again, I hope those will emerge from the community. (And anyone who has some more specific ideas about how to guide this in the right direction, please let me know. I am a tyro at this.)
You will notice that the forum area is not fully integrated, at least at this point, with the daily website. That may change in the future depending upon how this project evolves. But for the time being, you will be able to access the forum by clicking on the “Go to GCC Discussions forum” button in the horizontal menu on GCC pages, and you can return to GCC by clicking on the “Return to Green Car Congress” button in the horizontal menu on the forum pages.
The forum software is phpBB3. Any helpful suggestions as to how to optimize the configuration and make it more useful are more than welcome. To start, we’ll run with a “General forum”; I’ll hold off putting up more specialized forums pending your suggestions and wishes.
Thank you for reading and participating,
Mike Millikin, Editor, Green Car Congress
