This forum is ours to help one another enhance our flying experience on Air Canada.
hear hear! a fresh new start for us AC FFs!
Agree 100% Ab... err MilChap!
No fair .. you changed names.
Which one We both did
BOTH! But I figured out who one of you is..

I'm here ... first impression is that it looks prettier but there will be a lot more scrolling necessary!
At this time, possibly, however remember this is still in very new beta mode, so it is hard to say what the final incarnation will be and what features may be available. Welkomen!
Yes ... let's see how this develops.
This is like a private room right now, with just a handful of people. But others will surely follow, and how will it develop then? Will we have the same newbie posts, same complaints, same endless arguments, same trolls?
Some old friends are here......welcome to them !!!
I wonder if we can still change names. I am having an identity crisis.....
Looking forward to seeing how this site develops. Decided to use my new last-name-less handle, but it means that my FT and MP handles are basically tied for post-count. Hmmm. Good to see a few familiar names! (I'm formerly cam mac*** - avoiding google).
Welcome, mac ... err, c_9!
As have I
It's like a masked party!
this is what I wonder as well.
I am told that these concerns have been addressed.....
Rumour has it that there are a few frequent flyer BBs by invitation only...
I feel like I've walked into a masquerade and left mine at home
I'm interested to see how this goes forward. The thought of ranking people on 'likes' and other performance based measure is intriguing, and I think a far better option than raw post counts. It enables well spoken, knowledgeable newbies to be quickly recognized for their contributions, and it's also a far better way of assessing the credibility of a poster. An extension of the current model would be for 'likes' of high ranking posters to contribute more to someones points, on the basis that quality recognizes quality. It's very similar to trust-based signing systems, whereby you decide to trust an electronic signature based on their relationship with others.
Whether the public forums (like this one) stay civil we'll have to wait and see. The intent is definitely there, though.
And as your rumour says, once you reach a certain status, you'll be able to create private by invitation-only forums.
The other question that I have is on the subject of moderation of the forum.
This is a contentious isssue and led to the creation of another Canadian frequent flyer website.
I guess the future will tell....
There don't appear to be any moderators yet?
it is being already discussed...
