Apply to Join Canville

At Canville, we are proud to provide you with engaging and enlightening information on an array of topics. We invite you to help yourself to generous servings of our online hospitality and visit as long as you like–as many times as you like. We do not force you to pay us or hand over your personal information before giving you access to our content. After all, you are our honored guest.

However, we are confident that you will find our virtual home so resourceful, useful, and refreshing that you will keep coming back. We are also certain that you may find our neighborhood so engaging, fun and comforting that you will want to call our little village “home”.

As a tightly-knit community, we’re more careful than most about who we let move into our neighborhood, so here is a little bit about us so you can decide whether you’ll fit right in.

We value family and friends. We want our children to grow up in safe and loving homes, and we want our seniors to enjoy life with the respect and dignity they deserve. We appreciate the joys and companionship our friends bring into our lives and want to maintain our connections with them while also broadening our circle of friends.

Speaking of friends and family, we also enjoy a good meal around the table. We like to cook or grill. We like trying new dishes and discovering new tastes.

We enjoy the wild and great outdoors, as well as the little bits of nature in our own backyards, or even just on our windowsills. We enjoy a good hike in the woods or maybe getting our hands dirty in our gardens or potted plants. And, yes, we do think sunsets are beautiful. (Sunrises too!)

Sometimes, we’re a bit nostalgic. We like things that are antique, vintage or retro. There’s nothing quite like the look and feel of an old toy you've had since childhood or an old book that’s been handed down from person to person, that would have its own story to tell were it able. The good ol’ days? Well, we like every day to be the good ol’ days. We enjoy the past, but we’re also optimistic about the future. At times, though, we do need a little pick-me-up, and are ready to receive (or lend) some inspiration.

Along with that, good humor is appreciated as well. You can’t always take life too seriously, and you might get too many wrinkles if you do!

We’re also interested in saving money as well. We like fixing old things, making them new again and keeping them around a few more years. And, when we buy new, we want to make sure we’re getting a good deal and that we’re buying something that will last. We also like earning a few more bucks on the side, maybe selling stuff online or at the flea market. We want ideas for growing and running our small or home businesses.

Of course, we’re a diverse group of people. You don’t have to share all of those interests to fit into our neighborhood. If you’ve agreed with a few or more of them, you’re going to feel right at home with us. So, please complete the application below. We look forward to welcoming you into our community!

Upon approval of your application, membership starts at only $10.00 per year. (No, we’re not going to tease you with some amount ending in .95 or .97 to entice you to join. It’s ten bucks. Let’s not complicate things. Oh, and that’s U.S. Dollars.)

Please note that our forums are currently in the pioneer level and you may stumble along some virtual loose boards or wayward nails along the way.

Canville Virtual Village
There was a time when the streets were alive with the sounds of children playing, friends gathering, and adults conversing. When the heat of summer met its match in an ice cream bar delivered by the friendly chap in the neighborhood ice cream truck. Or, a rubbery hose would refresh children with the spraying of water into the air. Oh, how times have changed. Where go the little children now? Where now gather the teens? Where chatter away the adults all afternoon? And, alas, what has become of the lonesome ice cream man?

In today’s fast-paced world, where many suffer from information overload, we offer a retreat from the headaches of the computerized world in our own Suburbs of the Information Superhighway, Canville Virtual Village. Click here to jump to our forums.
