A THANK YOU from Connect2Edmonton


  • A THANK YOU from Connect2Edmonton

    Hello members!

    I’d like to take this opportunity to personally thank everyone who donated to the Go Fund Me campaign organized by Chris. (chrisvazquez7). I can’t thank everybody by name as there are several anonymous donations, but there are also many users I recognize.

    I’m very humbled by the response like I said before. To be frank, the only written feedback I received to date was that the site was not worth anybody’s time. Thank you very much for showing myself [and many others] that the site is actually worthwhile. Seeing that some of the donations come through was heartwarming.

    If you would like to view the campaign, it is still up at Do me a favour, and reach out and say thank you to the members you recognize. Also, feel free to say thanks to those who donated by posting later in this article.

    I found it fitting that this would be the first article we posted on the new Connect2Edmonton headline page.

    My best wishes to everyone, and now let’s make this site the envy of every city in Canada.

      I would also like to thank everyone for their donations. When I first started the fundraiser, I didn't expect it to even reach $1,000. Well, I woke up the next morning to see it already past that goal by quite a bit. It shows how much people appreciate this forum. I am so glad people stepped up with their money and kept this site open. It is such a fantastic resource, and it's great to have it continue. Here's to the next 10 years! Thanks everyone!
      I am also very grateful to all who donated. I spend more time on this site than any other site by a large margin. I didn't even quite realize it until the site wasn't there anymore. I don't post too much and I do get annoyed at some, but the information is excellent and getting a general feel for what others think is great too. This is the only form of social media that I utilize so its nice to get that connection back.

      I didn't know this site was back up until today!
      Was just curious and decided to see if there was news on this being back up, as the last time I was on here it was going offline, and lo and behold it's back!
      I love this site to get info or just to read about Edmonton (the good and the bad).
      Great job and will continue supporting this site

  • So you hate groupthink?
    by RichardS
    So you hate groupthink? So you think the forum has a specific bias? So you think that one opinion prevails overall?

    You couldn’t be further from the truth. Just because there aren’t a plethora of people posting here opposing a specific position on a building, project, parade, or any other event or project DOES NOT MEAN your opinion on the contrary side is not appreciated or welcomed. The reality of Internet forums is that only certain people will use them. The reality of Internet forums...

  • C2E - powered by YEG TEL
    by RichardS
    YEGTEL is now a key partner in the C2E domain. I must admit the logo is a bit of a throwback! As you notice by the banner, C2E is now hosted by a local company. Having our servers in Canada again has a definite advantage as the previous set up was in Seattle. Patriot act is one, payments in CAD is another... Max at YEGTEL approached me while I was laid up in the hospital, and demonstrated his company's desire to partner. It took some time to make this happen as I knew the upgrade was going t...

  • Edmonton’s future needs fixing; 16-year-old has suggestions
    by NoreneS
    Hi my name is Logan Lehune. I’m 16-year-old student at McNally High School. I would like to give my take on the state of Edmonton and its future. I am very passionate about Edmonton and its future and I am very actively involved with the city to try to do my part to make it better. But I feel that if Edmonton does not change fast we will fall behind on the global stage. Darwin said: "It is not the strongest who survive, but the ones who most adapt to change.” And the world is changing ra...

    New Ideas

    We all know of the challenges that our city faces: urban sprawl, unresponsive government, a deteriorating downtown.
    The citizens of Edmonton expect their elected representatives to be offer innovative and visionary solutions to these problems.

    Here are a few ideas that I see as having significant benefit to our communities.

    Property Tax Reform Presently our taxes are based on the value of our land and on the improvements on that land, i.e.,...
