    Recently a new user, GeorgeB registered and started posting on the forum.

    For those who don't know who George Blankenship is: Vice President of Design and Store Development at Tesla Motors.

    I think everybody is happy with George registering here and participating in this great community, but there is a side-note:

    It's great to see that Tesla reads this forum a lot, so keep posting your great ideas and keep up the discussions!

    But we should however prevent spamming George with PM's and asking him direct questions as he (like he says), for lots of reasons, can't answer them.

    Yes indeed George. And it's nice to know directly that you do hang out here. I know your time is valuable to us all, so we won't burden you with questions until you want to volunteer.

    It is good to see that Tesla Motors is committed to build a great product. I think Mr. B will find some very insightful commentary as well.

    Could we sticky this one? This would be the "Don't ask George!" topic instead of the "Ask George?"

    Now that we know how popular TMC forum is inside of Tesla, let's stand back from cluttering the forum with nonsense posts. The impact on productivity of Tesla employees is putting Model S launch date at jeopardy! :biggrin:

    George Blankenship isn't the only Tesla employee on here. Some Roadster owners have had calls and PM's in the past answering questions or clarifying issues for us. Pretty cool really.....

    I suspect a lot of employees keep an eye on the forum (on their own time presumably) just to see what people are saying. There are a lot of lurkers here. Only 1294 of the 6883 members have ever posted a message. The entire company could be watching and we'd never notice. :tongue:

    I posted something a while ago about not getting information from the original rep I had and I got an apology/new contact e-mail later that day from another rep. Pretty cool. ( I ordered around the time I think they were changing locations in Palo Alto or some other restructuring was going on)
