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.

    Well, have the spammers won? It looks like site traffic looks to be way, way down from what I recall. It seems that vBulletin would have some resources to deal with spammers. I personally limited my posting after the last major outage about a year ago and the lost of posts. At the same time pretty much every topic has been hashed and rehashed thousands of times, many times by the same people. But, thanks for times past!

    I hope they shut this site down. It's nothing but a bunch of self-righteous arrogant "born again evangelical" ****** spouting their hate toward Christians.

    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.

    They must be paid to do it, though.

    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.

    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.
