Hey now, if we're going with hockey team logos, we need a real team, not a buncha Swedes squatting out there on the left coast

I don't have any problems with how the site is laid out. I think it looks quite sharp!

Just because the name of the site is CanadianContent and there are a number of Canadian members here(of which I am one) doesn't mean that you have to make it an ultra-patriotic Canadian site. I like it how it is right now. We do have a lot of non-Canadian members here after all.

If you decide to add some extra graphics, and it wouldn't be too difficult(or time-consuming) for you, then perhaps you could add a couple of special themes(like the Halloween and Christmas ones) to perhaps satisfy the ones that don't like the look.

And as far as it looking like it was "Conservative"? I'll second your 'Hrmpf'.

Back when I was banned, I did venture to another Canadian Forum that has a pretty good look relating to Canadiaism..... if that's a word.

Since it's technically a rival forum, I'll PM you the link so you can see what they did/do and maybe see if there is anything you think might be something decent for inspiration.

I personally couldn't care less either way how it looks, but since you asked......

The site looks fine - understated elegance. Why adopt an American-style format which would see the site plastered with beavers and Canadian flags?

It can be done tastefully if you know what you're doing & overkill the whole thing.

The fewer identifable "Canadianism" there are the more CC is identified as a Canadian site. Jingoism, chest thomping & kitschy nationalism have not been identified with Canada for most of our nationhood. A Canadian doesn't need to be reminded they're Canadian they just know. Just the site name S/B enough, if not use a maple leaf or a beaver no need to go any further.

To make this site more typically Canadian, more Canadian posters would have to say that they are certainly NOT Americans.

Andem perhaps if you moved back from Europe.

I mean people are secretly talking behind their hands calling you Iggy. "He doesn't really live here. He's not a real Canadian."

Let's face it man, putting on a back bacon jacket and drinking imported Labatts 50 is just not enough when your over there with all those limp wristed Europeans whining about Flipper Pie and Seal Eyelid Bras.

It matters man..

Your Canadian Flag avatar just doesn't cut it dude.
