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.

Overview:
  • 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 Here’s a weird one: Purple trades, do you have to wear your element?

January 04, 2019, 05:14:53 by Somerandomfellow
If you’re purple trade and your dress isn’t for operational purposes, can you wear another element’s dress voluntarily?

Example:

If you’re Army or Air Force and you’re posted to a ship, you have to wear the Naval Combats. If you’re at a Naval unit that does not go to sea, such as a base, you can wear your CadPat...

If you’re Navy and you have to do field exercises you then must wear CadPat but if you’re at an Army or Air Force base you can wear NCDs.


My question is:

If you’re a purple trade but are in th Naval element, can you choose to wear CadPat if it doesn’t really matter operationally?

I’m purple and I’m Navy but I hate NCDs to work in, they’re not made for physical activity. I’m doing all sorts of stuff and my shirts always coming out, my black pants always have mud on them, I’m a complete travesty!

I want to wear CadPat to make my job/life easier - and do. BUT I get some strange looks when I walk around with that black, non-armoured beret on whilst in CadPat.

Are there any publications  about the Elements and their dress? It’s quite frustrating being less comfortable than your comrade just because of your element.

Elementasim is what I’m calling it.

Navyca-Ico Home port selection after CT

December 13, 2018, 14:43:01 by navcomm2018
Good Afternoon,

I am a NAVCOMM with an NRD, and I am planning to put in my CT within the next 6 months. I have completed my BMQ, NETP and trades qualification. I am trying to determine if I will have the option to select a home port once my CT has gone through. I have spoken with my chain of command, and to date have not gotten a clear answer. I am trying to weigh my options with my family in terms of choosing where I am hoping to be posted, and would like to know if I will even have an opportunity to request a port, or if one will be assigned.

I have also been unable to determine if I would qualify for the current recruiting bonus that is in place, or if that is only available for previously trained members who have chosen to return to the CAF. I have attempted to perform a search for both of these inquiries, my apologies if I have missed something.

Thank you in advance for any help

xx Time off in Ports

November 20, 2018, 22:22:43 by Navy_Bean
Hi All.

Curious as to what people usually do when they have time off docked in ports...how long usually do you spend at ports?...Does the crew find themselves going off by themselves, or do they stick with their crew mates?....

Thanks so much! ;D

xx Looking for Navy Personnel

September 14, 2018, 22:21:56 by luttrellfan
Good day,

I was wondering if there is anyone on this forum that currently works at PCC in either CFB Halifax or CFB Esquimalt. I was hoping to talk to them about upcoming Naval deployments where a reservist boatswain (me), could try and get on. If so, we could talk more about it through PM as I realize deployments are a sensitive matter. I understand that I should be asking around at my unit, but the person who would know isn't available for the next couple of weeks.

Apologies if this is the wrong sub-forum to post my inquiry on, but I thought I'd give it a try. Hopefully somebody out there has heard a few rumblings, but if you guys could point me in the right direction that'd be great.

Take care

Military Quote
When the common soldiers are too strong and their officers too weak, the result is INSUBORDINATION. When the officers are too strong and the common soldiers too weak, the result is COLLAPSE. When the higher officers are angry and insubordinate, and on meeting the enemy give battle on their own account from a feeling of resentment, before the commander-in-chief can tell whether or no he is in a position to fight, the result is RUIN.
