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.

  • Why is this one asterisked out?

    On another forum someone attempted to link to 'got questions.org." Of course, the name of the site does not have a space between "got" and 'questions," but if you attempt to type it without the space, it is asterisked out. Is there a problem with that site? The forum in question is the Mormonism forum, and "Got Questions.org' is NOT a pro-Mormon site by any means. Ordinarily such sites are fine to link to...what's the problem?
    Any forum member can respond to any post here. When I use "you," it is ALWAYS plural, and does NOT refer to a specific person unless I make that clear by writing 'you (specific name) are an (insert opinion)."

    Happens when spam is blocked. If posters or spammers post a link many times in the forum for advertising, we block the links, most likely that was in the list, will be removed when spam lists deleted. If something not spammed for a while, then we do remove it from the lists.

    * "Conduct yourselves with wisdom toward outsiders, making the most of the opportunity. 6 Let your speech always be with grace, seasoned, as it were, with salt, so that you may know how you should respond to each person," (Col. 4:5-6). NASB
