    Thanks for the images, do you have a script blocker in place?

    In case of old scripts, try clearing out your cache, it might help.

    I see that IE is reporting errors.

    I see the identical problem with Opera 10.10 on OS X.

    Is the TMC selling add space? Why am I getting advertisements for singles sex adds on the entry banner, and bottom trailer?

    err.. there are a few small adds using Google Ad sense. All the ones I see are car ads. However, I do believe Google tailors the ads based on your browsing and search history... :redface: ahem...

    No not here, and it was on the initial login at the first redirect. Never seen any adds there before. No big deal.

    Doug, some forums offer "premium" memberships to help bring in rev. Might be an option. Have a yearly or lifetime option. Little badge by your name and no ads. I use tapatalk so I don't see ads, but for those that do, they might like an option to NOT see them and still support the community.

    Sounds like you've picked up a hitch hiker on your browser; you're being served ads from a plugin or some malware.

    Right now, the site is served up from spare hardware resources and time. It's existence is enough for me. Plus, right now, you get what you pay for... up or down, accidentally deleting the 'Hydrogen v. battery' thread or not :)

    If we charge, we set service level expectations that I'm not ready to commit to yet.

    Hi Michael,

    I just want to thank you for this wonderful forum.

    It runs circles around the official Tesla Motors forums, a point I have recently posted on their forum.

    Thanks.

    Larry

    Indeed, +100. I don't know of another place on the internet that wouldn't have devolved like Usenet on WELL day over that amount of time. It takes time and attention to keep the level of discourse high.

    Well said. Compared to other forums, this community is very polite, educated, well informed, and articulate.

    The moderators, past and present, are absolutely top notch as well.
