Lyle,

There seems to be an explosion of new people on this site recently, which is a good thing for sure. Would it be possible to maybe expand the FAQ section to include a run down of what we do know at this point in time, and maybe add to it as new data becomes available? Maybe a combination of a timeline and data pulldown tabs that can quickly educate the new folks on what has been discussed previously?

It sounds like a lot of work to sift and compile the relevant info, but maybe we could reduce the effort by posting here what "the interested masses" need to know and understand about the car.

Marketing this car will be a challenge for GM for sure, so trying to control the misinformation floating around may be a way to help them out a little.

This site is really getting some increased traffic and getting a grip on these issues now may help the site keep its well earned integrity and reputation on all things Volt related.

Good suggestion. There's an easy thing Lyle can do - enable sticky topics. One could be what you suggested. These topics stay at the top of each forum sub-topic (for example News, Engineering, Competitors, etc.) and the reader can quickly spot them. Some of these stickys could be:

1) FAQ - things we know about the Volt - updated

2) Price of Oil/Gas

3) Wind power

4) Battery technology updates

5) Solar

6) Hydrogen

7) Compressed air

Other ideas? I think limiting a few stickys per forum sub-topic is best so it doesn't distract people. Maybe we can all hammer out a list that would best fit our growing community and then present that to Lyle. This would save him some time so he can see some of his patients once in a while. ;)

He really needs someone at least part time to take over maintaining his web site. It would help a lot to have the search function work, and the full-specifications page should be updated as well with new information. It has the Volt concept data, but the production Volt is starting to be quite different.
