    Site Administration Site upgrade, please report problems

    Are the buttons absent, or visible but not functioning? I don’t have a recent android device to test with but all is working on iPhone.

    Site Administration Site upgrade, please report problems

    Folks, another fairly significant server upgrade went through this morning. So far no reports of issues but if you encounter anything please let me know. Thanks!

    Ukraine - Superthread

    The use of "moronic" was unnecessary and unhelpful. The general message of avoiding inflammatory partisan comments is valid, but I agree the delivery could be better. Thanks for the feedback and the reminder on the rules.

    Completely missed it that time, and of course everything looks fine at the moment. Thanks for letting me know, I'll try to keep a closer eye on things.

    Thanks Edward. FYI things are still looking good this morning, but I will continue to monitor. Next time I'm hoping to have the time to investigate vs. the brute force reboot I did last time. :)

    Site Administration Site upgrade, please report problems

    The database server was overwhelmed with connections. I don't know a root cause, but a reboot fixed it. I'll keep an eye out for trouble, as this could indicate a bigger issue.

    Sorry Wayne, as noted this is not an official site of the CAF or DND, and I have no connection to 709 Sqn. Best of luck with your search.

    Thanks Wayne, completely agree in principle, but as we are not an official site and receive no financial support other than from our members, EV certs are out of reach. Certs would be needed for Army.ca, Navy.ca, Air-Force.ca, and Milnet.ca, increasing the cost. P.S. You may want to remove the...

    The Truth About Army.ca

    Folks, I received an "angry letter" from a user this morning and in drafting my reply, it occurs to me that the same sentiment may be shared by many, so I'm making a public reply in the hopes that I can address concerns beyond the single user. The trigger for the note was the recent banning of...

    Site Administration Major Server Upgrade [12 Jan 2022]

    Unfortunately, when we switched forum software from SMF to XenForo, all of the internal links broke. I did run several scripts to fix old links to point to the new threads, but in some cases that fix didn't work. In your example, the URLs were updated to the new format, but don't point to a...

    Site Administration Site upgrade, please report problems

    Hmmm at no point should a site cause your system to slow down so much you can’t control the mouse. Are all sites like that or just Army.ca? If it’s all sites, you should check the Performance tab of Task Manager, you may be running low on memory or have high disk use. Might also be a good idea...

    Site Administration Site upgrade, please report problems

    The 24 hour window isn't an option in the current forum software. I'd suggest you haven't been able to delete your posts for over a year now. If you're using a VPN, changing networks a lot, or using private browsing, that may cause a 2FA re-prompt ahead of schedule. The system tries to...

    Site Administration Major Server Upgrade [12 Jan 2022]

    I think think everyone gets it as soon as they log in. I've disabled those trophies for now. The logic is pretty limited for those fields, you can't say "award if it has a value" all you can do is "award if present." Even an empty field seems to meet the criteria. Odd that the server OS upgrade...

    So I see you (Bruce) are in fact a counter-example (for Rank at least). I'll take a look when I have a bit of time.

    Site Administration Major Server Upgrade [12 Jan 2022]

    Spot checking shows only those who listed their rank/regiment got those trophies, so we might be ok. If you find any counter-examples, please let me know.

    Site Administration Major Server Upgrade [12 Jan 2022]

    Folks, This morning the site's underlying servers were upgraded. There should be no noticeable change to the site "look and feel" or operation, but please let me know if something has stopped working. Thanks!

    Site Administration Welcome to the new Army.ca!

    You can use the link at the bottom of the site to change your theme, regardless of which domain your using. Most will show Dadaist Style next to the paint brush icon: Use that link to select the theme of your choice.

    Infantry Officer Training and Progression

    Not really, other than a possible change to require AOC before IDCCC but I don't believe that is official yet. Would love to put together a similar picture for Infantry NCM/NCOs but I don't have the authoritative info.
