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.

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

xx Former B.C. naval officer charged with sex crimes

August 15, 2018, 22:27:54 by daftandbarmy
Former B.C. naval officer who provided acupuncture and massage charged with sex assaults

VICTORIA — A 71-year-old Esquimalt man and former Canadian Armed Forces officer has been arrested and charged with four counts of sexual assault.

The offences were allegedly carried out while the man was providing acupuncture, massage therapy and traditional Chinese medicine, and investigators believe there could be more victims.

Kit Wong is charged with sexual assault against four women who were allegedly assaulted in 2005 and 2006 while Wong was working out of his home business in Esquimalt, said Det. Graeme Leblanc, of Victoria Police Department’s special victims unit.
Wong is a retired navy lieutenant commander with the Canadian Armed Forces, based out of CFB Esquimalt, and a prominent member of Victoria’s Chinese community. As a result of his deep navy ties, many of his clients were military members, Leblanc said.
“These alleged sexual assaults left these women feeling powerless,” Leblanc said. Wong’s former position in the military left women feeling as though they could not come forward, he said.

“It doesn’t matter who the suspect is. We will listen,” Leblanc said.
