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.

    When I was sent to preach the gospel in Campbell, CA. I had to sell everything I owned until I was totally broke so I was homeless for the 5 years I was living there. After finding hundreds of friends, some who were homeless, some who were disabled and many others who were retired from their careers, I found a few homeless people who were enjoying life more than most hard working people. They had no one telling them what to do or when to do it so they were enjoying their freedom. Once I got used to sleeping in a sleeping bag on nothing but a foam pad, I enjoyed being homeless, too. However, I was given a very strong desire to work hard at preaching the gospel to anyone who read the messages I drew on my whiteboard each morning and came to listen to the words I spoke to them.

      Did your school teach gossip?

        This is one of the downsides of schools. There are a lot of kids that tease, bully and make fun of people. Insults. They learn what they can get by with.

        Gossip.

          No gossip here.
          It is well known that you make extravagant claims about your education, occupational experiences, and achievements without offering the slightest shred of evidence to back them up.

            Just take that sentence and put it in the search engine for thousands upon thousands of examples. Local, Federal, and elsewhere.

              I get out plenty.
              If you disagree with what I said how about posting something of direct substance?
