    Saving the forum is the reason to do this. Will be able to do a lot more on this site, give it some time.

    There is risk. But we have become totally stagnant and the forums are not conducive to them youngin's and a lot of others. Not sure why. Hoping to some degree for a social media backlash, there damn well should be. This site(s) don't track you, game your attention, use algorithms to fuck with your head ect..... The new site will push the V's. There are a few different ways to do it. The old site/new organization will be seeking out better community relationships from coast to coast. Starting to rebuild that site in the next few days and create a more organization feel than it had before.

    The first step in making some major necessary changes to the Voyageurs, is moving the forum. The major reasons being: Separation of the forum from The Voyageurs as a group to limit possible damage from content. The ability to more heavily moderate the forum without the sense that people are being suspended or banned from The Voyageurs as a group Decrease the view of the Voyageurs as simply a forum, that many people are not comfortable to join. They need to join a group. The divisive nature of inter city bullshit The divisive nature of club soccer Attract those that are soccer fans in this country but do not want to be part of a national team organization and are hesitant to join. Increase in traffic as a general Canadian forum/hub for club and national team soccer can drive more people to The Voyageurs. Drive more traffic to Canadian podcasts and blogs with the forum being integrated into CSN as a general Canadian soccer hub. Impending draconian copyright laws

    I'm behind this 100%. Thanks for making the tough move. Happy to help in anyway, as I continue code literacy to ensure millennials don't steal my job.

    The original idea of CSN was to move the forum there and do what we are doing now and that was years ago. The problem was as soon as there was a forum connected to the writers, they lost their press passes back then. Total bullshit, but it was the case. Doesn't seem to be an issue anymore. Otherwise I have talked about this issue on and off for several years. It isn't new.

    First I heard of this today, but logged in over there and all seems quite smooth! Except I couldn't see any forums for the MLS teams. Am I blind? Looking in the wrong place? Or locked somehow? (Or all of the above )

    Have to agree. This whole arbitrary move by a few without any consultation that I could see, bites. Was there some sort of hidden thread discussing this? My question about where the off topic threads are going is being ignored. I can live with losing a singing nun thread that probably had more views than the Futsal forum combined, I can even live with losing a software thread that I put over a decade of work into and had many thanks sent my way. But what I find unconscionable is if the stadium thread is lost. That is probably the only archive of Canadian stadium construction news and history out there, not just football stadiums but Saputo, BMO and BC Place. And all I've seen as reasons why controversial threads or posts are gone are because of supposed "ghosts" out there who will kill the Vs if we're not politically correct. That is the biggest pile of bullshit I've ever heard and can't fathom anybody believing it. And worse case scenario, even if it were true would you want to be part of an organization that kowtowed to people telling them to keep quiet. WTF? I don't know what is going on behind the scenes here but something's not right and I can only speculate my thoughts, but it is a done deal so I guess it doesn't matter. Never say never but I can't see myself going to the new site, because I feel pretty betrayed, but I feel pretty good about the fact that I've been around longer than most, made some contributions in posting news and keeping/refurbing the Moaca and speaking my mind about what I believed in even if most others disagreed.

    It' is because you already had a CSN account from before. Precedence went to the existing account. I'll fix it now.

    To CSN, and building a general Canadian Soccer Content hub, and making the V's more of a social group to join. www.canadiansoccernews.com
