xx The Warning System

April 26, 2018, 14:53:06 by Scott
Next to the Staff turnover last year, the largest change we've had is in how we apply and manage warnings. In the old days, it was by manually slapping a huge banner on a user's account, writing it up and then manually removing it when the time came. The new approach is simpler and more transparent, for everyone. It's also streamlined to keep the Staff from becoming bogged down in managing warnings.

  • A 0% warning can be used if a "warning shot" is needed, with no impact.
  • Users may apply a +5% warning to another user via the MilPoints Assessment screen, this falls into line with our users policing users approach.
  • At 10% a user is added to a watch list for the staff.
  • At 25% a user is moderated (all posts must be approved)
  • At 50%+ a user is muted (they cannot post)
  • Warnings automatically decay at a rate of 10% per day.
  • Each Staff can apply no more than 50% to a given user, on a given day.
  • This means any Staff can mute a user immediately, but concurrence from another Staff is required to keep it in place.
  • E.G. A user with 70% warning will be unable to post for 2 days, and back to normal usage in 7 days.
  • A user's entire warning history is displayed on the warning screen.
  • Staff can decrease warning % at any time.
  • All messages and warnings are logged, this helps any review process.

If you receive a warning that you wish to dispute, PM me and I will look into it. Please do not PM any Staff you see online. We're trying, as much as possible, to streamline how we handle matters like this, and a common approach is what is required.

Any questions, don't hesitate to contact me.

xx Neck pain a debilitating problem for RCAF helicopter pilots

Neck pain a debilitating problem for RCAF helicopter pilots

The Canadian military is looking for ways to reduce the number of neck injuries seen in helicopter pilots, which is attributed partly to heavy equipment. But there is no quick fix for the costly concern.

xx Canadian Forces' senior brass have been growing at a much faster rate...

May 03, 2018, 14:00:17 by Once_a_TQ

"OTTAWA - The Canadian military has been getting heavier up top and not in the muffin sort of way.

New figures show the ranks of the Canadian Forces' senior brass have been growing at a much faster rate than the rest of the military over the last 15 years as dozens of generals and admirals have been added." ......

xx Canada, Australia to send military aircraft to monitor North Korean ships

April 28, 2018, 12:42:00 by Dimsum
The Canadian military is joining Britain, the U.S. and Australia in a new surveillance mission to monitor ship-to-ship transfers of oil and other goods to and from North Korea in violation of UN sanctions.

Canada is sending about 40 support personnel and a long-range patrol aircraft, a CP-140 Aurora, to the U.S. military's Kadena air base on Japan's southern island of Okinawa, a spokesperson for the Canadian defence department confirmed in a statement on Saturday.

The aircraft and personnel are from Canadian Forces Base Comox in B.C.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland and Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan also issued statements saying the aim of Canada's participation in the operation is to "counter North Korea's maritime smuggling in accordance with relevant UNSC resolutions."

xx Anyone train with this guy?

April 25, 2018, 15:54:52 by CBC Diana
Anyone here train with Alek Minassian?  He's the guy who's been charged with the van incident on Yonge St in Toronto on Monday. He was only in St Jean, Que for 16 days last fall before asking to be released. I'm a reporter at CBC in Toronto who's been working on this story.  Reach me here or privately by email:    thanks.

Military Quote
The enemy resembles us. Therefore, he needs to be approached not as an assembly of 'targets' to be destroyed one by one; but as a living, intelligent entity capable of acting and reacting.
