Default What happened to the website?

I liked the website that was associated with this forum, but it seemed to have disappeared today - and entry of (https://fordfocuselectric.com) in the browser brings me to the forum now.

Is this intentional or an error?

Thanks...

We decided to change the website to be a forum rather than a blog.

All the pages of the site are still accessible except for the main page which is now the forum.

I miss the blogs already, you had just posted a nice one about the tax credit / tax rebate debacle that was very informative. Hopefully you'll be able to get some time in the near future to go back to blogging.

Are there other resources we can research this type of information on to discuss here in the forums? Sites or sources may be helpful.

Thanks for the explanation Admin, I understand. The fact that Ford isn't exactly pushing this car with constant news releases (like GM and Nissan have done with their vehicles) makes it hard for the blog end of things - a bit of a downer for us possible purchasers as well. At least Ford has a car coming (I was really wondering, before they bought the Focus Electric plan from Magna and announced it, if they were going to have to buy Think back again to get a vehicle...).

Maybe everything will pick up after we get closer to production.

I kind of liked the Blog stuff.

Much like the Volt blog site, it will be nice to have a central place articles that give info about the status of the Focus. e.g release/testing status, modifications from the exhibited version (get rid of the hump in back!), etc

Definitely appreciate the support of the blog.

The best thing about the forum though is now we have the chance for hundreds of fans to simultaneously scour for Focus electric news and report it here, as opposed to just one author.

The blog here would be a great way to attract more forum members.

I have mentioned this elsewhere on this forum, but for those interested in digging for news, the Aptera Forum has a pretty good archive of news about the FFEV. For example, http://www.apteraforum.com/showthread.php?t=4167&page=3 is a link to autoblog.com coverage of the CES rollout. Lots of pictures there. There are links to articles by most of the popular EV bloggers. The Aptera Forum is waning thanks to inept Aptera Management. But until they take the site down, there will be lots of FFEV nuggets there to dig up.

I'll try to find a few nuggets and copy them here. I hope others will help me.
