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.

  • the beatles were overrated

    so my mom had a bunch of old beatles records she thought were worth gillions of dollars. i had to inform her the bad news that there are millions of them around and they arent that valuable unless they are in mint condition or unopened. it got me thinking of how popular they were. so many records, they were essentially a boy band with talent. they were great but ultimately they wrote pop songs. id say easily the best bands of all time

    1-led zeppelin
    2-pink floyd
    3-metallica
    4-the beatles(even though im not a big fan)
    5-rolling stones

      I stopped listening to the radio when the Beatles took over and '60s "rock and roll" died. There are the "Refreshments" though that do it the old way.

        i wouldnt say top 5. they are an all time great band. the british and english really knew how to put out great music. america put out a ton of good bands in the 80s and 90s, but still its amazing how many good bands england and the british produced

          what is the old way? elvis was considered rock and roll was never a big fan of his music. i guess its mostly black singers like chuck berry and little richard? decent stuff but it kind of all sounded the same to me.

            But how many of those 80s & 90s bands do people still listen to?
