Does this Freak anyone else out?
It is quite possible that I am paranoid...but when I scroll down to the bottom of the page to see who is online I see all of these "guests" 8O All of these people who can read what I have to say without ever saying a word, seems kind of like a stalker 8O ...
Marking threads "Read"
When opening the forum front page, after logging in, all unread threads have a star on the left.... If one wants to read it, click on the star and it will take you to the last post before you logged off the last time.... If you have no interest in a...
A Place Pussies
Please create a new section on Canadian Content for the pussies. Name it something catchy like Kitty Korner, The Litter Box or go with a Canadiana bi-lingual name like Chat Chat.

Cannot view next page
If a thread has more than one page I cannot get to the next page. I can see at the bottom of the thread the little boxes with 1 or 2 and this >. When I place my cursor there it goes Kabloohey. Just all jiggly and shaky . At times I can see for a...

I am not against the odd off-topic post but when people come from other forums and fill up half a page of trivial, off-topic and personal stuff at a time it is getting to be a bit much.

Yes, I know, what a delicate flower, but honest to goodness what I want more than anything on this forum right now is the ability to put a thread on ignore. I wish I could describe the visceral reaction, the bile rising, the hands shaking, the tears...

How to Link to a Specific Post?
I would like to link to a post made in an old thread in these forums. Is there a way to link to a specific post within a thread (not the thread itself)?

A FAQ is needed.
A FAQ is needed for CC. Many questions one sort of stumbles their way to, lots of them here for instance. Difficult for newbies to find answers in the threads here though. A specific definition re: 'when is a moderator not a moderator?' is very much...

Please ban inappropriate pics from this site.
I can't remember the CC rules on this, but could we please remove any nuide pics from this site. I like women's breasts and all, but please, could we still keep them off this site. Thanks.

Forum Re-Direct to... What?
Normally in my browser I type "can..." which auto-fills to "canadiancontent.net" to get to these forums..... um... but just a few seconds ago and even right now as I type this, I am redirected to this: Hello, My Name Is Pabst Some site about babies...

We seemed to have run out allocated memory for repairing any database issues. That's been fixed. There should be no more interruptions!

Running some updates - may see short periods of downtime today
Hello folks! I'm running some updates on the forums server today and we might experience some short periods of downtime at some points throughout the day. So if you are writing long posts, I suggest you copy them into Notepad before you hit the post...
I took the day off to play video games and have been at it for around 6 hours. It appears that when I started playing Terraria, the site went down and my phone was on silent (alas, no alerts could be heard!) Anyways, we're back up now. Sorry for the...

Thumbs up and down
Is there a place on CC that keeps track of the total ups and downs for members and is it possible to see the scores of other members? Currently I can see my own ups and downs but there is no running total.
Missed CC today. How long was the site down?

Some Design Modifications
I've been working all day on algorithms and hardcore coding and decided to switch my efforts over to some design changes on the forums. I've been wanting to do it for a while, but I've lightened up thread pages and postbits. Anyone else notice? Comments?
CC going down for maintenance (done!)
I'm going to have to schedule a time to bring the server down for a couple of hours this week (maybe today) because we have some faulty RAM. I'll keep this thread updated. Update: Server will go down for a time between 4pm - 7pm EDT
Boolean logic, can we have it?
Andem, is there any way we could have boolean searches when using the forums search function? Having only the or operator is not optimal for searching, in my experience.
CC is now one of the fastest forums on the net
Is this site "Canadian Enough"?
I've had a couple of reviews from various people after I relaunched the homepage and various people mentioned that it doesn't look Canadian enough. One even said it looked like "the conservative colours". Hrmpf. I added a Canadian flag to the top menubar,...

10 minutes downtime
I've finally managed to push this server to the limits and managed to crash it after around 1 year uptime. Argh. Anyways we're back.

Passionate about a subject?
Since I've completely revamped the home page, I've also put a lot of work into organizing articles submitted by members which cover a lot of different topics. The great thing about the forums is we can discuss opinions openly and talk about what's going...

CC Facebook Page now live
If nobody noticed, I posted a request to members asking them to become a fan of CC on facebook. I don't expect everyone to join in, but its there now! The page will be especially helpful if there's any downtime on here and/or you want to keep up with any...
Threads are now "Live" with Ajax
I've made some slight changes to the way threads are displayed. From now on, active threads (the ones that have been active within the past hour) are now live! That means that new replies will automatically appear after the last post on the page without...
A couple more Forum Leaders.....
With the addition of the new sub-forums in the Science & Environment Forum, we are announcing two new Forum Leaders to take care of them. You may notice that the forums and their new leaders are extremely well suited - aren't we lucky to have so many...
I was just wondering how to see my post ratings. I, of course, see them when I get an alert of a new one but I can't seem to find them later when I want to revisit them and revel in the glory of the 'good' ones and whine and cry to myself about the bad....
When do I get mailbox access?
1. When do I get mailbox access? I want to PM an admin? 2. When can I change my member title? 3. One of my posts went to moderation this morning and I don't see it yet. It's either slow moderation or the post was disallowed. I asked about opinions...
For a limited time, you can use the halloween theme by selecting it from the drop down settings menu at the top of the screen :)
The CBC newsbot is a bit of a spamma
I've noticed since the Newsbot came back to life that it seems to only focus on a couple of news reports.... say two in particular (The UN Security Council thing & the Miners in Chile) I know it's just blindly doing its job, but isn't there a way to...

A new look for CC
Most of you have probably already heard that I had a group of beta testers testing out some new stuff and a lot of you were wondering what rated posts were. Well I've decided today to make this version live and switch everybody over. I'm pretty tired...
Past 10 minutes
If you posted something in the past ten minutes, please excuse me! It is gone.. forever.
Negative rep points
I'm familiar with how the rep system works in general, but I can't seem to figure out which post of mine garnered the negative rep. Is there a way to look and see?
I was just checking my CCF stats; what are referrals?
Deleting a moved post?
How does one delete a post moved into a thread I do not wish to be part of? The now post, which had been a new thread, is now in the thread: Another Tamil ship on its way to our shores. It's heading: Author Goran Simic watches the news of the...
Hope I'm in the correct forum? If not, please move this to the appropriate forum, thank you. Ok, I've tried linking to the image file on an image storeage site - won't work. Copy & pasting it into a post does not appear to be possible, not...
