  1. I guess I wont be commenting on articles anymore. Im not signing up for yet another account. I understand moving away from Disqus but why couldnt it be linked to our forum accounts? This is just a poor decision.

    I also dont understand the disconnect between the forum and the article comments

    Disqus.. wow ..worst scammy site ever. Cannot get it off my PC no matter what I do. I have deleted so many executables and every little crumb and even a couple of spam/antivirus and notthing can ever get it off the OC

    Forum admin, @Rob Lay explained that InsideEVs was purchased, but not the forums. So the two similarly named entities are now completely separate. The InsideEVs news site removed the link to the forums, but the forums did not remove their link to the news site.

    The most bizarre aspect of this split @Rob Lay reported was, "It is sounding like they [the company that bought the news site] didn't even know the forum existed."

  5. Wow. I wonder if we can expect even more ads. I may have to set Firefox protections back on for the site.

    Edit: To be fair, most websites dont host their forums on a separate domain. Its usually a subdomain. So I can see why they wouldnt know.

    there shouldn't be any more ads on here than the years past, that hasn't changed.

    I'm still trying to talk with the Inside EVS leadership.

    I'm amazed that Inside EVs and the Inside EVs forums would be separate entities when it came to a change of ownership.

    This global info page doesn't mention or (to which links still appear on the US website). What actual corporate reshuffling happened when the InsideEVs forums were orphaned?

    As the blabbiest InsideEVs forum member (other member roll eyes), I'm very happy the InsideEVs forums didn't go away!
