I have sent an email to update the Plymouth one as its only for Nissan drivers, for site security the barrier goes down out of hours, i have also included a non 0845 number as best to call ahead.

We have just added a list of all the Nissan dealer chargers that we know of.

http://www.evwiki.info/index.php?title=Nissan_Dealer_Charging_Network

This info is already in a number of places but we felt that to have it in a single list form it might complement the fine work done by David Peilow with the Google map he has created.

Also, with it being a simple list there is no complications of having to use maps or do searches on databases.

As always, if you know something is wrong or missing then either sign up, log in and change or add it yourself or email us at [email protected] and we will add it for you.
Hi Paul - The evwiki link doesn't seem to work anymore. Is this a temporary thing or has the site been taken down?

Just looking to see which dealers have chargers as planning hols and at present struggling to sort out the ICE loan scheme car.

Is there another way to access a list? I was looking for such a list to an my ownership model.
Also, is it generally a positive experience (is it a concern that a brand new car appearing on one dealership to charge when it was purchased from another would not go down well).

No error. I pulled the plug on EV Wiki. Since we created it we have constantly asked people to help add to it and we have had no response. I think one person registered and made a small addition but other than that it was just Sally and me.

If no one else was prepared to help create and maintain it then I don't have the time or the interest any more to do it so I pulled the plug on that particular project.

I still have the site moth-balled so if people still want it and are prepared to actually add to it and build it up and do something with it then I will gladly reinstate it but I am not having it take up valuable space on my web server if I am going to be the only person adding anything to it.

I am afraid that this is just another consequence of the general apathy I see on-line to help. People want the services and facilities but only a very small few are prepared to help or contribute. I am not whinging. It sounds like I am but I am not. It is just a fact of on-line life. I have always accepted that people expect something for nothing and until now I have been happy to do it but ultimately someone has to pay. I have done a lot to try to get various projects up and running with little or no help and I am not doing things like this on my own any more. Sorry.

Silly question but why not create the pages on wikipedia, that way no one needs to maintain a site for it
That's what wikia is for.

Wikipedia is odd, big, pretty much self-regulating and often smaller or "less important" wiki pages will just get killed or merged without anything you can do about it.

Not a silly question Jon... I did think about that before I started the EV Wiki. I also looked at the other EV Wikis I could find to see if I should be adding to them instead of starting a new one but like this one they too suffered from disuse and none of them had really got going so I though mine might be different in that respect... it wasn't :(

Wikipedia is monolithic and daunting for a lot of people. You can get lost. You also have to have a vague idea of what you are looking for before you can search for it. By having a EV specific Wiki it is possible to limit the scope so people don't get lost and to tailor the index and menu system to be very specific for particular purposes. For example, we were planning a training path through the Wiki for beginners giving them the basics. This is difficult to do in Wikipedia and we would have to conform to the Wikipedia ways and methods and not be able to tailor them to more appropriately fit the EV world.

There are a lot of interest/product specific Wikis around and they work well for that microcosm and I felt that the EV world was specific enough to warrant a separate site. Just my assessment and decision. Perhaps I was wrong :)

the advantage of being in wikipedia is its searchable from devices using google now or siri and a miriad of other search methods that also search wikipedia, to get to a wikia you need to go via google/bing

But there's a high chance they would kill things like this dead. Nothing to stop folk from doing it, but it could be a very demoralising task to create something and see it then killed by the wikipedia masters.

I've started a new discussion with an alternative list for rapids only (thanks @flipper for the original link) available here: https://speakev.com/threads/nissan-uk-dealership-rapid-charge-network.3396/ which is very much open for feedback and contributions, hopefully that will prove useful.

I've updated the first post to reflect this change too, to try and avoid the confusion of linking to the now deceased EV wiki.

Apologies for the temp. thread closure, felt we were going off topic too much and just adding to the confusion for newcomers of thread title vs conversation topic.
