As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Notice to all posters

    I call the attention of all posters here to re read Rule 12.8:

    The numerous accusations of "you are lying," or "you are a liar," or "that is a lie," will stop and no longer be permitted on our forums to accuse posters of a "lie" but by management posters only with documented evidence from admin. Proof that someone has purposely "lied" involves knowing the "motives" or "intent" of the poster to "bearing false witness." Since the majority of posters do believe what they are posting to be true in their "opinion"--even if readers believe the information "false"--it involves too much time in moderator, reading, examining all the threads, evidence. The posters are not to use the "lie" comments to a poster. State your opinions of why you disagree with the poster leaving out the "lie" or "liar" accusations or receive infractions/suspensions for "personal attacks."


    To call another poster that s/he is "dishonest" or "blatantly dishonest" is NOT ACCEPTABLE. Remove those words from your CARM posting vocabulary

    Nor is it advisable to reply to a poster on whom you made an alert. Too often that comment turns into an insult, and we must take action on that insult. To ignore a secondary insult is to abrogate our responsibolities as mods, and we really do not play favorites.

    I had to delete many posts on different threads just because people called others "dishonest".

    I want to commend you on your efforts to remain objective in responding to complaints about insults.
    "I want the truth!"
