#6 of 23 Hybrid Vehicles - weekly chat?
Jun 19, 2004 (7:29 am)
Due to the popularity in this board we are considering adding a weekly Hybrid Vehicles chat. Interested? What night of the week would work? Time (give time zone). We are working on getting some industry analysts and guests in for the chats as well.
#7 of 23 Wow there are now 32 Hybrid discussions ..
Jun 21, 2004 (12:36 pm)
.. besides this one. And that doesn't count the 5 archived hybrid discussions and the one(1) discussion Edmunds staff retired, "Hybrids, Are They Up to the Chore?"
Obviously, these is a direction the car makers are moving towards.

There are so many hybrid boards now that sometimes items are repeated and sometimes is it hard to find something.
How does one post something that adresses more than one forum without cross posting?
How does one search several forums at the same time for relevant items?
How come when posts are deleted responses to the posts are not also deleted. Trying to read a forum after it has had items deleted is very confusing sometimes.

Not THE host, but A host...
Wow, lots of questions there. First, it's "poster's choice" - you can just look at what's been going on recently in a discussion and pick the one that's going closest to the direction of your intended post, or in which there are participating members who you feel are most likely to reply... it's really best to pick only one, since duplicate conversations are hard to follow, and split the conversation up, but as long as you stick with the basic theme of the discussion, you can choose.
You can use the keyword search at the left, of course, and all related items will be displayed. If you use the advanced search feature and want to search the message text, you must select the radio button indicating that you want to search the text rather than just the titles. Then there's a drop-down menu under which you can select all boards, a specific board (like Hybrids or SUVs), or just the discussion that you started in.
Finally (whew!), we do try to delete responses to deleted posts, especially when it's been a flame war situation. But unfortunately, it's pretty time consuming to check each discussion for replies to deleted posts, and then get rid of them all. We'd rather focus our attention on getting the discussions back on track. If you ever see a problem, though, you are welcome to e-mail the board host to alert him/her to take a look.
I hope this helps answer some of your questions!
