    I've noticed a lot of threads started in the wrong area. It seems a lot of them end up in the Prius v area, for some reason.

    Any idea why? Is there something about the site's design, wording or layout that seems to be causing such posts to gravitate (at least to me) to that area?

    Shouldn't this thread be in the 'PriusChat Website Questions' forum? :p

    Yeah, I was debating where to put it... but it seems that the above is meant more to ask questions to the moderators or Danny than to figure out whether other people are seeing something that I don't.

    The description for that area is "How to use PriusChat.com, questions, suggestions, problems, etc."

    You were going to get that reply regardless of where you posted your question. I was going to do it, but Hyo beat me to the punch.

    The Prius v will generate confusion for the life of the car. Toyota could not have chosen a more confusing name. Why the Gen I forum is hidden within the Gen II forum is self inflicted by the site administration.

    This four-letter word probably accounts for a lot of it:

    ADHD

    Keep in mind American society according to one doctor has up to 60% behaving as if they have that condition, even if only 7% have it in the strictest sense.
