As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days. 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.

  • dumb question about those little orange bars...

    Does anybody know what those little orange bars are under the avatars? Some are full all the way across, some are full only part way...and I feel really dumb because I can't find the answer. We've been told, I know, that "there are no stupid questions,"....but I'm sure there are, and I'm equally sure this is one of 'em, but hey. I'm too old to care. I just wanna know.

    Yes, they are the bars that were for Rep points collected, that were still set up when the board crashed but no longer working to give more rep points on these new forums but the old bars still there from before they crashed. Will see if there is a way to remove them tomorrow since the rep system does not work, only the bars visible from before. Was hoping the rep system would work again but does not so really not sure if/how the old rep point bars can be removed but will check on it.

      Oh. I had a 'full set' of rep points? Cool. (grin) You don't have to get rid of 'em if you don't want to.

        I may just leave them for now, until we get the first updates or whatever, that might fix the rep system.

          I'm not sure that it doesn't work. It seems my bars have gone up over time, so it must be working somehow. Maybe it increases with number of posts, or maybe number of likes to posts?
