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.

    NOTE

    Address the issues, posters, and do not attack others especially if they do not live up to your expectations. I do note that there are posters who are close to bickering, so I urge all to be careful not to cause offense, and to not take offence if there seems to be one there. Seek clarification first before jumping to erroneous conclusions.

      There is a single most important thing for any two parents to strive for in their endeavor to parent. The statement, "There's no SINGLE thing..." is incorrect and it doesn't take any condescension to say so.

        There is no "single" thing...it's 18 years of teaching and training in many different things to make a reasonably self-sufficient, independent adult. But, what would I know...I only raised three of 'em.

          That is incorrect .

          It is incorrect because there is one preeminent thing upon which all else will be built.

          It is incorrect because to pit the "one thing" against the additional 18-20 years of training and teaching is a false dichotomy. They work together, not in exclusion of one another.

          It is incorrect because personal anecdotal experience is just that.

          It is incorrect because reasonable self-sufficient, independent adult is not the goal. It is, in fact, a problem to be solved (and I suspect if I told you what a better objective was you'd agree, smack palm to forehead and say, "Yes, of course, that's what I meant!").

          It is incorrect because neither "reasonably self-sufficient" and independence nor the correct objective are not measured by good jobs, monetary income, and marriage (and I suspect you know this, too.).


          And why anyone would think it appropriate to call someone they've never met condescending based on a single post is a problem, one that doesn't work in your favor if the goal is to persuade and prove your position. It's an internet discussion board. It's not personal.


          There is one thing that is preeminent. Everything else will be built upon it. Or not.
