Just like a real community, there will be different opinions, but when people remember a few rules we can help each other grow. Some of the key things to remember are:

  1. Community members may not demean, harass, abuse, threaten, or advocate violence against other members or individuals or groups. Disagreements are fine but try to stick to the facts not personalities.
  2. Community members should remember this board is aimed at a general audience, think of it as a family site. Posting pornographic or generally offensive text, images, links, etc. will not be tolerated and will lead to a warning and these posts will be edited or removed.
  3. Community members should make every effort to stay on topic with the original post and post only in the area closely related to the subject of interest.
  4. Community members may not add members to the group.
  5. Community members may use V is for Voltage Forums for commercial and advertising content of Electric Vehicle related items or content only. Remember to use links when possible. These posts should be placed in the appropriate forum category of our Community Marketplace.

  7. Community members may not use V is for Voltage Forums for personal conflicts, or to contact vendors/dealers in open forums.

  8. Community members may post images on the forum as long as they conform to the above rules and are no more than 100KB with Dimensions no greater than 500 pixels wide.

  10. Community members may post links to published Internet articles but not complete articles. Posting copies of articles on the forum is a violation of copyright law. You may only post a very small portion of an article unless you have permission in writing from the author or publisher.
