Submitted by newsletter editor on Fri, 02/16/2007 - 20:53
Today marks the 3-month anniversary of the V is for Voltage (.org) Forums website. In keeping with the growth of our site, we would like to invite our readers to become part of our newest element: V-News. A monthly newsletter to better serve our EV community.
The goal of our newsletter is to provide up-to-date and accurate information, a format for sharing and discussing the issues and concerns of EV owners and to provide a place where environmental issues can be examined and discussed. This newsletter is therefore dedicated to the encouragement, growth and development of our community of electric vehicle enthusiasts.

The unique avatars that are used by the V is for Voltage Team is the brain child of Max. Max said that his intention was to have the symbol look like a unique thunderbolt The idea was to let the thunderbolt be a capital V and then mirror the image so as to create a nice frame around the name on the avatar. Lo and behold, his first avatars were born. However, after several days a few of the V is for Voltage members began asking him about the strange framework. He did take a bit of kidding from members who thought it looked evil, as in a horned devil; and, even Batman was mentioned! After a bit of explanation, this was enough to send Max back to the drawing board. With a simple cut between the mirrored images and the insertion of the capital V, Max had outdone himself and the present day avatar is the result. You can track Max's progress and posts by clicking visforvoltage.org/forum-topic/site-administration-and-governance/263-was-avatar-intended-humor-or-warning. By the way, Max is up for producing your personal V is for Voltage avatar.
As we begin our second quarter, the numbers say it all: the member list has grown to 144, 335 topics have been put on the table for discussion and these have generated over 1500 posts by the EV community. Well done! So, tell your friends, tell your neighbors, tell your friend's neighbors that we are V is for Voltage Forums.
