How is the VVi CSAT Forum Going?

Post by Admin on Sat 28 Nov 2015, 21:14

Have to apologise that I have not been as attentive as I should be with this forum. A lot of things on the go.

If there are any problems or suggestions to improve the forum, do not hesitate to contact me at

CJ, things have calmed down a lot, now that the election is over. But Teen has instilled in the site, the need for controlling language and the necessary level of respect for it to remain relevant. So the members on here police themselves for the most part, and may only need a friendly reminder from other members once ina while, when emotions start to get out of hand.

The election, you've got that barnburner right bigrex. CJ, I have seen and feel that we all pretty much self-regulate. Watching our P's and Q's... with respect. That's a very big word.
And being open-minded to other points of view garners... the best foot forward.

I figured as much. Ron did a lot to set the standards here, and I noticed most are also regulating posts.

Very busy on my end between VVi, PPCLI and Airborne associations, I am kept on my toes. I am hoping early in the new year, there will be a couple of additional volunteers on VVi staff. Still have yet to find a Forum Master for CSAT.

My thanks to y'all for helping to keep CSAT regulated.

If you need to contact me go direct to my pers email cjwallace58@shawlink.ca.

Bumpsy, I think that Teen did an incredible job for many years, but I think that CSAT needs more than a single forum master. There should be a handful of trusted members who can make necessary changes or additions. They would also be able to pick up the slack, if someone becomes complacent, or needs to take time away from the site, for one reason or another. Maybe ask the membership for some nominations, along with recommendations from Ron

Great work done by many. Some of you should be representing Veterans issues at the stakeholders mtgs with Minister.
Who are the 'stakeholders'??????? Not a beep from them from the last mtg!

The problem with stakeholder meetings, is that many of these organizations seem to be going into them thinking "how can we use our presence to make things better for our membership?" instead of "how can we use our presence here, to make things better for every Veteran?".

yes bigrex that is something I belive as well . these organizations should have better lines of communication and go into these meetings with a common goal . one that reflects the needs of all vets. same thing goes for any committee meetings .

communicate - have a common goal/goals

keep them simple specific and concise.

have the priorities right as to the needs of ALL vets and the importance of each .

A few thoughts. Teen did a lot CJ.  All the background stuff, legwork, time consuming, fine tooth comb stuff, pro-active, pretty much even keeled. Yup.
But this ain't some obituary so...  HI TEEN !  
Perhaps a trinity like bigrex mentioned?
Someone being mobile and close to Ottawa would help...
I got a whip I could supply... but the ends are frayed. Double Shyte!

Something in the last posts here remind me of something though.
Some communications, organizations, and commonalities that lack.

Kudos to CVA, but I do not like the phrase “One veteran, One standard”
anymore these days. Peeves me off... why?
Because it's just a pimped out bumper sticker by anyone or any GoC.
The essence is always there, always was. Before the bumper stickers,or the phrase.
