how-to unsubscribe to threads
or at least stop all those e-mails i get when somebody replies? Please don't say 1-by-1 as there are about 150 in my subscribed list.
Christmas Theme is here!
Karrie has made it very clear she wants and infact probably needs a Christmas theme with a Christmas tree in the bottom right corner.. so I've created something which may be construed as 'christmas-y'. Available in the theme menu for a limited time,...

Theme link not working?
I've just discovered that in Internet Explorer 7, the "Themes" menu wasn't working. I've identified the problem and IE users are now able to switch their themes. Themes will also soon be selectable via your control panel, but for now it is only available...

Current Status - "is" not mandatory
I saw hermann's status "petitioning to remove 'is'" and it was on my todo list.. Now you're given the option of using "is" or anything else you want.

The Themes Thread
Canadian Content goes web 2.0+ with ajax powered themes! The forums are powered by vbulletin and unfortunately, designing hundreds of different templates to suit each member was not an option, so I created a workaround I simply call "themes"....

Is all of Canada covered by current moderators?
I think not. Two are from the most western provinces, and one we do not know about. In my opinion the forum needs a moderator(s) to represent Quebec and the Atlantic provinces. A lot of good info and posts come from the Atlantic area and they are...
Political Affiliation & Your Profile
Hello! I'd like to announce that I've added 4 new options to the political affiliation section of your profile. The first two are for those who do not consider themselves very political or who think in terms not represented by the mainstream parties...

I'd have replied to your PM, but it seems I'm not able to reply to, or create PMs. Also, how do you delete your own post after it's been saved? By the way, I love the new forum format...:thumbright:

Hey GlenNK - read this!
Look: GlenNK Replying to Thread The Georgia Guidestones...??? This is what the moderators see when we look at our Who's OnLine page....
The colour-code for members means nothing to me. I can't decipher it fast enough for it to make any sense. I can't tell who is a mod and who is a forum leader and who is what. Not that it matters a great deal, but if that's what the colour code was...
Unfortunately, we've experienced much downtime over the weekend. Some problems have arisen with our main web server and now that it's back online, we're doing some investigating to find our where the issue lay. Our apologies for this!
The one millionth post award:
Lone Wolf, congratulations on being the one millionth poster on CC! We are delighted to present you with this award: ...and a big thanks goes to Praxious for creating this award as...
Announcement: ShadowShiv joins the CC mod team.
As most of you have noticed, a bit of change is afoot at Canadian Content. Among those changes is the addition of another person to the Moderation team here. We have invited Shadowshiv to join us and we are fortunate to announce that he has accepted. ...
approaching 1,000,000 posts
Now i'm not sure how many posts CC gets per day, but I noticed today that we're into the 900,000's, which means there's a milepost looming. One day, sometime fairly soon, someone will make the 1,000,000th post. What will the prize be?
Fixed search bug
I came across it myself today and noticed clicking links from forum keywords searches redirects you automatically to the homepage. It's fixed now incase anybody else noticed.
All you have to do is paste the URL of Youtube or Google videos and it automatically turns into a video embedded.

New forums: Climate change and..
There are two new subforums under Science and Environment. Climate Change and Alternate Theories. We would like to keep the main Science and Environment forum for more mainstream science discussions. To discuss science in the news and generally issues...
what's with all the colours?
Blue names, yellow names, purple names, black names... Can I be Mr. White, actually I'd be cool with Mr. Pink too I suppose. So, yah...the colours. I'm gone for a week and the place goes all psychadelic! Groovy.
Individual forum leaders/mods
As you might already know, Talloola is the leader of the new NHL Hockey forum. Talloola has a passion for the game and will lead that forum by helping generate content for discussions and she will also have moderator abilities within the forum to handle...

Forum suggestions wanted
I know there have been discussion before but I'm curious what ideas are out there lurking in the shadows. Are there any specific new forums you would like to see? Examples - US Elections? Healthcare? Conspiracy Theories? NHL Hockey? Photography?...

Two new forums under the "Sports" heading: - NHl Hockey (more to follow on this..stay tuned, it should be fun) - 2010 Winter Olympics (we're only 18 months away from the Vancouver Olympics!) Changes to the "Politics" category: - Unsused forum...

Important: Help shape your Canadian Content
Based on feedback from the past months, I've decided we should all reshape CC into what YOU want it to be. It seems the social networking features have been a real hit, so I want to grow on that. Unfortunately, CC hasn't been that easy to navigate, so I'm...
Reorganising the forum structure
Reinventing the board topics. This is a very important step we should be making to improve the layout and ease of use of CC forums. The staff threads have mentioned it several times in the last months so let's put this also up for talk. Currently: ...
Jun 12th, 2008 by scratch
Hey Andem! I thought I would raise the idea here of an 'invite' option, so that we could invite people who we might think would be interested in the forum. Personally, I don't like my real life people to know where I post, but, there are a few...
Weird time stamps
The weird time stamps have been caused by the fact that some of you are currently using the backup server and some of you are using the old server (which has a questionable stability at the moment). I've fixed the backup servers time to be correct.

Network & Power Outage
Dear Member, As you have probably realised, Canadian Content has suffered a serious outage of over 30 hours which has been linked to an explosion in the data centre where our Domain Name Services server is hosted. Along with that, we also have a...

Karrie has decided to return to civilian uniform at CC. I want to thank her very much for her contribution as a moderator. She has a lot of things on her plate right now. I hope all of them are a roaring success. Good luck with all of your endeavors and...

Private Profiles and Adding Friends
There's been some confusion about how to add a friend if they have a private profile. To get around this, you also have the option to add somebody as a friend from a) within a thread and b) within your control panel. For A: - Goto a thread, click...

PMs are PRIVATE
Private messages on this site or any other site are private and not to be posted on a public forum. The latest thread full of private messages posted publically is against the forum rules.

*Hoax* Forums closing on 30.04.08
Dear Members, Canadian Content has recently been purchased by a Canadian media company well known throughout the country. The purchase was completed during my absense while I was in North America during March. With that, our logo has recently changed...

I just discovered where these live and looked through my list of comments people have left. Interesting collection of crap. A collection of the negatives: What a useless silly feature of this forum. I can see how this feature could create a lot of...

An odd old thread
This thread is weird. The posts appear in triplicate.
