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.

  • Quite the find... wonder if folks will request they be destroyed

    this is quite a find... we have encountered some interesting artifacts when renovating our schools but nothing even close.

    Wonder who will find them offensive and think they should be destroyed.

    Very interesting. My wife as a teacher took our kids to a living museum where they dressed in period costume and re-enacted the old 1 room classrooms, cooked on wood stoves, butchered chickens, boys did blacksmithing. No A/C in the summer. The neat part of these old blackboards is even tying the education into how they lived. On Thanksgiving they went hunting and shot a turkey vs thawing a Butterball 2 days before.

      Who are you suggesting would find them offensive? I cannot imagine anyone not wanting to preserve these relics of the past.

        Those chalkboard images are from a high school? The "lessons" look like elementary school, the basic math and pilgrim history looks like something I was taught in 2nd or 3rd grade.

        Perhaps it was an elementary school that was later converted to a high school. Otherwise, students in 1917 were backward compared to the Baby Boomer era.
