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.

    Guessing:

    They might want to establish a reputation with a -hope- to obtain future payment for attacking a hardened target.

    CARM is a very soft target to test their hacking acumen and put their work on their resume. There is no monetary gain in attacking CARM.

      The question I have.

      Would the old forum have been easier for control of the spam situation?

      Can someone answer that question?

      Maybe a Mod. Or Matt.

        The old forum crashed and burned. So, I doubt it. But it is frustrating.

          I would think they are working on it diligently.

              There would evidence. I don't see any evidence.

                These guys spamming the forum are literally human trash. What kind of a person just randomly targets a forum? NO PURPOSE for it.

                Most likely they are possessed by the devil. FIX IT LORD JESUS!

                  If you google "Korean spam forum"...you'll see this is not a new thing.

                    Well we wouldn't see any if it were all being done behind the scenes, off board. I don't know what is going on, but we all seem to be coping with it. I just click on my name in the upper right corner and go to ""See latest posts" and find the threads I was on there.

                      Yes. Tesla has been attacked by this too.

                        There's even mention of sports based forums being used. I don't think it's an attack per say...but rather a vehicle to see their filthy agenda publicized.

                          They must be paid to do it, though.

                              It is fundamentally necessary and healthy for Christians to acknowledge that God foreknows nothing uncertainly, but that He foresees, purposes, and does all things according to His own immutable, eternal and infallible will. This bombshell knocks "free-will" flatů

                                It can be a challenge to overcome this problem. I was a mod of a web site for a few years and we had a problem with spam usually from Russia. We'd delete spam right away get their IP addresses and lock them out but with their use of proxy servers they'd basically get right back in. There are ways of getting around that though. Here's a link of ways of solving a proxy server problem if indeed this is the issue. Folks don't be down about the mods on this. You know they don't want this problem any more than you do.
