Blue Line Forum’s fresh start – restored & protected

Hello to all our faithful and engaged forum users. Thank you for your patience over the past week or so. I've tried to reply to the threads calling attention to the issue at hand with this message.

The forum has encountered some spurious activity. To be proactive and safe, we have had to revert the forums back to a former point in history—Aug. 22, 2018, to be exact.

We understand this is frustrating and we apologize for any inconvenience.

That being said, the private forums are still active and available for members. The private forums have not lost data. We are still in the thick of looking at all accounts and removing unused accounts going forward, so please take that into consideration.

We want to make this a free-form discussion about law enforcement in Canada and we will be monitoring it and keeping things cleaner going forward.

If you have any feedback, do feel free to share it in the comments below.

We hope you will join us in treating this as a fresh start.

Glad it's back...

Now that I'm sworn in, wondering if someone could point me in the direction of joining the private side. I can't seem to find the post with instructions on that.

Thanks,

HG

Ditto, I would also like to join the private side.

Why's it saying I'm not authorized to read different threads which I could before? For example, the general CBSA chit chat thread. Thanks.

There is no such thread anymore. Refresh your browser and you'll be fine.

Are they? I just see options for "Public forums" and no private showing. At least as of Oct 13

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.
