Re: New OACP mental abilities testing question

Any information they need you to know will be given to you in advance. Asking for any information not publicly available is asking candidates to violate the provisions of confidentiality of the testing process. We will not be party to that.

Problems signing on?

If your user name or password is not working, it could be that your account was deleted when the forum was recently reconstructed. If you email an admin, PLEASE include your old user name! The emails strip off the sender and WE CAN'T DO ANYTHING FOR YOU IF YOU DON'T TELL US WHO YOU ARE. I have been ...

Re: Blue Line Forum’s fresh start – restored & protected

We temporarily lost viewing access to the public when we removed anonymous users from our guest group. This succeeded in preventing non-members from accessing our forum, but it also prevented non-members from even being able to read the forums.

We have now managed to restore that capability.

Re: Any updates from site admins/moderators?

No idea why. There was no sense to what was deleted and what wasn't. It appears police officers and threads mentioning the RCMP were the first ones to disappear.

Our private forums are still up and running and have not been touched during the recent rebuilding. For extra security, we are keeping them hidden from view to all except registered members.

Renee is the Blue Line editor. PM me with your IP address. I checked the one you registered from, and it is not on the ban list.

I'm not seeing the Police only forum when I log on, I assume that's a work in progress?

Re: No more public talk?

Good lord. Is this preschool? Not for long it isn't. Trust me; admins are in no mood for playground antics; "he said," "she said" bull; and "I'm telling on you," whining. Take it to another forum.

Re: Any updates from site admins/moderators?

No one was angry with the forum. It has been a valuable resource for everyone for 20 years. On the contrary, we had officers from around the world and recruiters from major agencies who were all active on here.

We will have an announcement soon. Everyone involved is working hard to restore the forum.

Re: Toronto ETF (the security company)

I am guessing there are lots of pictures in over 30 pages of posts. No need to post duplicates of ones we have seen already.

Lots of information for regulators to look at if and when they choose.
