INTRO & ABOUT US
First off, we'd like to welcome you to TalkingEVs.com and thank you for visiting. This site is owned by Gooda Blogs LLC, which is owned by my wife (@VegasBorn). I am involved as I am the computer nerd who knows tech stuff. We are both very passionate about electric vehicles and what they mean for us, our children, and our planet. We feel that the adoption of EV's needs to happen now if we want to stop destroying where we live, and EV's are extremely fun and exciting to discuss, operate, and work on. While searching for other EV sites, we found that there are very few that encompass all EV's together. Most EV sites we found focus on a single brand or single EV, which we wanted to welcome all EV owners and enthusiasts. Therefore, we created TalkingEVs.com to accomplish this task and hopefully become a top online EV destination.

We have owned 4 electric vehicles since 2017 and are current owners of 2 Telsa Model 3s. You can look into why we sold our previous EVs a little more here (2019 Chevy Bolt | 2015 BMW i3). We both have full-time jobs outside of this site and operate this site mostly as a side hobby. Therefore, we appreciate your patience if you try to contact us.

OUR MISSION
The mission of www.talkingevs.com is to create a quality and informational community for our users to inspire and support a strong community towards electric vehicles. What this means is we want to create a community that welcomes everyone from those just interested in EVs, to those who own and build their own EVs. It also means that all questions are welcomed and users agree to be courteous and friendly with others. EV adoption is already facing strong opposition and a lot of untrue myths, so helping others understand the truth behind EVs is important.

Our goal is to create this community free of charge for our users. Any visitor can register for free and will never be charged anything to utilize this site. However, we do offer premium upgrades to help support and offset the costs of operating the site.

FORUM GUIDELINES & ETIQUETTE
Due to being an online community, certain rules, guidelines, and etiquette need to be explained in order to establish a friendly and inviting space for everyone. Therefore, we ask that you follow and abide by the following:

All rules are interpreted and enforced at the discretion of the site administrators and moderators. If you disagree with any warning received, you may contact us. DO NOT take it out on others.

  • AGE RESTRICTION: You must be 18 years of age, reside in North America, and provide truthful information. Due to different laws and restrictions in other areas of the world, we currently only allow our visitors to be 18 years or older, and must reside in North America. We ask that you provide only truthful information, and use only your own personal information. Please do not use any information of another person or lie with the information in your profile.
  • EVERYONE IS WELCOME. If you fit within the above-described criteria, everyone is welcome. "Newbies", EV owners, and even those who don't own an EV are welcome to join and participate.
  • BE COURTEOUS OF OTHERS: Being that this site is an online discussion community, the majority of the content displayed is user-provided content. Every user has a different point of view and opinion. Please be courteous at all times to promote a friendly community. Do not use any hateful, profane, sexual, or discriminatory language and understand that disagreements can be educational to many users if done correctly. Treat others with respect and expect the same back from them. There will not be any flaming, trolling, attacking, or harassing of users on this site.
  • SEARCH BEFORE YOU POST: As the site grows, it will become harder to tell if your topics have already been discussed. To prevent duplicate posts, you agree that you complete a search for the topic prior to posting your own thread. If you are unable to find the answer to your question or post, then you are welcome to post a new thread at any time. And remember, there are no stupid questions on this site. Every question will be welcomed and if it turns out it had already been asked, then that user can be politely directed to that original thread.
  • DON’T POST CERTAIN CONTENT: Don't post illegal, sexual, religious, political, offensive, or copywritten content. This kind of content is not welcome on this site and will lead to immediate deletion. Remember, you are responsible for any content that you post to include your media and avatars. We will not be held liable for anything which you post. You also agree to not post any material knowingly containing viruses or malicious code. Posting anything illegal is strictly prohibited.
  • NO SPAMMING: No spamming or promoting products/services. There will be no spamming or advertising of products or services on this site, and we don't allow you to encourage others to stop utilizing this site. If you are interested in advertising, please contact us at support@talkingevs.com.
  • NO POSTING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION: Avoid posting personal information. Your content will be displayed publicly. Therefore, don't post any personal information about yourself or others. This includes but is not limited to actual names, DOB, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, etc.
  • PLEASE REPORT VIOLATIONS: Immediately report inappropriate conduct. Everyone can do their part by immediately notifying us of any violations of our rules by contacting us at support@talkingevs.com.
  • NAME AND LIST YOUR SOURCES: Name and list your sources. If you are announcing news, rumors, or any other type of content that you hear from another source, make sure to list the source in your post.
  • STAY ON TOPIC: Please make sure your posts stay on topic. Don’t hijack other threads with unrelated content.
WE HOLD THE RIGHT TO DISABLE AND/OR DELETE ANY TOPIC, POST, MESSAGES, SIGNATURES, AND/OR YOUR ACCOUNT FOR ANY REASON AND AT ANY TIME. WE SHALL NOT BE HELD LIABLE TO YOU OR ANY THIRD-PARTY FOR ANY SUCH DELETION OR TERMINATION OF ACCESS TO OUR WEBSITE AND IT’S SERVICES.

WARNINGS & BANS
Rules are in place to help this community function smoothly. If you violate a rule, you might receive a warning worth a specific amount of points.

SUPPORT US
Despite just starting this site in October of 2021, the costs of operating this site are not cheap. As we stated before, our goal is to offer the site free of charge to every user. However, we do offer 'premium' upgrades to help cover some of the rising costs of the site. If you are interested in helping cover some of our costs, please consider becoming a supporting member.
