[edit] Wikilink on main page to a software-issues page

The main page states that reprogramming "is the tricky part" but after 5 minutes of browsing I can find no further info on that issue. What good is a tricky conversion if the car never thinks to really use what you're giving it? Please include a front-page link to a page discussing the issues, either on the Prius or in general --PriusInGuatemala --201.216.136.95 08:12, 11 January 2007 (CST)

Ok, I've updated the Main Page#Basics section with a few more details. --Rjf 20:20, 1 March 2007 (CST)


[edit] Solar Panel Plug-in

I have not really seen any reference to the combination of Solar Panels and Plugins. I see there are a few people selling solar panels: solatecllc and solarelectricalvehicles are there any problems combining the two systems ?


solar works best in a fixed location facing the sun. A vehicle can't make the best use of the solar. Most people want to park in the shade. It's best to install a grid tied solar system at home and plug-in anyplace and consider you added the clean power at one point in the grid and take some out at another.

[edit] Categories

I suggest Category:Production PHEVs, Category:PHEV conversion kits and Category:PHEV open conversion. One could add PHEV conversion kit installers. --193.145.201.53 04:43, 5 October 2007 (CDT)

Thank you for the suggestion, and for all of your recent contributions to the site. Please request an account if you are planning to contribute to the site in a substantial manner. You do have a good point regarding the need for better use of categories. Unfortunately we currently have some duplicate categorization happening. ie: Category:PHEV, Category:Prius, and Category:Prius PHEV should simply be PHEV and Prius with the addition as you suggest of Category:Conversion, Category:Open Source, and Category:Installer. Another good category might be Category:OEM PHEV or Category:Production, though few such vehicles are available. I think it's important to keep the category titles relatively short and direct, similar to keywords... Let me see if I can't clean up some of the category mess we have going on. Again, thank you for your enthusiasm. --Rjf 04:55, 5 October 2007 (CDT)
I have cleaned up the categories, I've added to the main page some lists of articles based on combined categories. I've added a Production category, and since the majority of the site is about conversions there's no need for that category. I'm still considering adding an Installer category as most of the converters are also installers. I like the idea of the Open Source category, but may wait to add that one later. --Rjf 04:44, 9 October 2007 (CDT)
