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, but if clicking on forum on 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.

  • Attention ALL Posters:

    Rule 12 Attacking people:

    A. No name-calling, insults, or mockery of a board poster. No negative comments of any sort concerning any board poster. Rule applies only to current forum posters/chatters--does not apply to those not posting/chatting on our forums.

    B. Do not discuss a board poster on the forums/visitor messages/chat, do not comment using their user name, and most important no disrespectful comments of or about our Lord.

    C. Do not post any message that harass, insult, belittle, threatens, or flames another guest personally. Using other websites/forums/chat to attack CARM users if documented to admin will result in immediate Suspension to all parties involved to bullying and gossip of any CARM user.

    D. Do not discuss a forum poster on the discussion boards/messages/chat and do not attempt to moderate or correct behaviors of a forum poster; stick to the topic of discussion.

    E. Send alerts to moderators if noted rule violations.

    F. You may discuss or disagree with another member's belief system/group per the topic of the forum, but there will be no personal attacks on the member himself or herself.

    G. No negative comments of any sort concerning a board user; do not quote or misquote a poster in signature or body of message unless linked to full context of quote as copyright issue since only Super Members may link in signature; quoting of users in signatures not permitted for the average poster. Feel free to quote posters in body of messages to a thread as usual to using quote feature responses with context; do not misquote user; Again, if you begin a new thread with the quote of a poster, must link to the original quote in context. Do not use vulgarity, which includes abbreviations of vulgar terms, offensive nicknames, attack, or insult a poster with nicknames. If you alert mods to a misquote, must link to the original quote for alert to be considered.

    H. The numerous accusations of "you are lying" or "you are a liar" or "that is a lie" or "that is dishonest" or "you are not being honest" will stop and no longer 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" or being "dishonest" 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."
