for Admin Please
 
Kindly consider the seniority level of all members from old forum. for example I was Top Member there and here I am recognised as new, you can have check with email addresses and give them there old membership status. This is my advice. Otherwise this new Forum is very good in all aspect.

Hi,
 
I have a special issue, I am asking for advise on behalf of a Chinese lady married to a Canadian citizen (2 years ago), but has not returned to her and she needs a copy of his passport in order to get a divorce in China. But he refuses to provide it. Canadian Embassy in Beijing advised they cannot help.
 
Don't know where to post it here...

They married in Chongqing. She already went to the registry office, but for some reason (unknown to me) they would not, or could not provide her with a copy.

Please note: A warning will not always precede an action to block (as best we can) spam or abusive posting. Blatant spam or abusive posting is subject to summary action to protect the site without warning.

A warning is not a threat. It is a courtesy, and an opportunity to continue participating so long as the participation is appropriate.

There are only two options available after receiving a warning: participate appropriately or cease to participate.

I do not personally read all the forums at this site, so I cannot say that all spam or abusive posts will be promptly addressed. We do our best to protect the site. We hope participants here value these forums sufficiently to support this effort. Thank you.

Note: because this site is almost constantly under attack from spam, I will not, because I cannot, make any attempt to judge the merits of posts which consist of little more than links to other sites . . . with some obvious exceptions (in addition to those I just don't happen to notice) for links to primary sources, like a CIC webpage for example (although it would be preferred if there was some explanation or description accompanying the link, not just a bare link).

In just the last three weeks, for example, I have made efforts to summarily block scores of "members" along with deleting and hiding, literally, hundreds of spam topics and posts, for which I have no automated tools, and which is thus a labour-intensive, time-consuming effort for me.

I don't have time to sort through these, or to issue warnings, so I summarily delete, hide, and block spam, without regard to the content of the post otherwise. I suspect this has included, on some occasions, posts by immigration consultants (perhaps even legitimate consultants), but again I do not have the time to screen spam based on content (a post which consists essentially of advertising or a link to a proprietary site is, of course, spam).

For those who are contributing members of this site, please help me in this regard . . . the site is rather liberal in what linking is allowed, so I don't think anyone should be confused about this or unreasonably restrained by this approach.

I would note, for example, that a common approach to spamming this site is to couch links in what might appear to be relevant content for the site. Again, if the post is clearly about advertising or linking, I will not attempt to judge the merits but will summarily delete or hide (and, in 9 out of 10 times, perhaps 99 out of 100, I also suspend the account and attempt to block that individual from making any other posts -- no warnings, I just do it).

New moderator needed

Since this is the only visible post apart from spam in this forum at this moment, I will take the liberty to repost what I posted earlier:

dpenabill is not doing his job any longer.

did not show up for 5 days, forum flooded with spam.

please appoint a new moderator.

suggestions: Eileen or kisunja85

Thank you.

Way too many spammers on the citizenship forum. Can you please do something about it? There are at least 2 spam posts per day!

Unfortunately several dozen spam bots register every day and post just one message, so every one has to be deleted manually.
