PAFs online

  • 137
  • 7
PAFs should now be online. If there are teething pains, please submit an S6 ticket

PAFs are now availible via the link in the resources tab at the top of the website, via the link 'https://7cav.us/form/'

The key difference here between the old site and this new one, is how the 'PAF' is handled at the trooper/submitter level.

Now it's just one form (with a convenient link https://7cav.us/paf) where you enter the relevant details. For receiving staff, there is one forum to watch - https://7cav.us/forums/363/

Once you process a PAF using the relevant tools, or just action them yourself, please move the PAF thread to either 'Processed or Cancelled'

If you have any questions, you can reply here. For help or technical issues, please use an S6 ticket.

Announcement MILPACs now Active

Now that MILPACs is now active, I've hidden the Barracks forum area from non-cav members.

Please be patient while S1 works through the list of users. For more information on S1's strategy for processing MILPAC profiles, click here

Usernames and you - what happens with the new forum?

  • 386
  • 3

I've had several questions about usernames here on the new forums, and what happens to folks who were registered on the old forum but have since discharged or retired etc.

As we did last forum move (Jan 2016), any currently active member will be guaranteed their username on this new website. I know there's some difficulties due to MILPAC profiles not being up, but we will get there. This policy also extends to Reservists, due to them being still regular members for the intent of this issue. Finally, Wall of Honor & Arilington usernames are also 'reserved'.

As for Retired or Discharged members - their names are 'in the pool' so to speak. Unless they register here and get a 'basic' MILPAC setup via request, similar to the previous forum, their name is un-reserved and can be taken at any time by a new recruit.

The new ticket system that is soon to be online will have a category for S1 tickets for RET/DISCH members to 'gain' their Milpac back. I will guarantee any tickets being held up due to MILPACs not being ready.

Welcome everyone to the new website!

There are some teething pains with the new version of milpacs, and as such S1 can't process your accounts to give you the right forum permissions until that's done. I'm waiting on some bug fixes from the developer, but that may not come until after the weekend.

In the interim, please do the following:
