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, but if clicking on forum on 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.

  • Reminder: "How do I" forum is for technical questions only......

    Due to recent questions concerning rules on this forum, this is a reminder again, read the rules and Rule 5. deals with the question, comment issues. This forum is to ask forum posting or technical questions only related to forums. Any comment, question about rules, mods, admins, management are to be sent in email as directed in the "Grievance" Rule. All posters should read the rules when registering but for anyone that may be confused, here is the rule again, if you comment or question mods/admins or rules, management, you must do so in email or receive infractions/suspension.

    Rule 5. Grievances:

    1.Should you have a comment, question, grievance or complaint with the CARM administration or moderation rules, do not post the grievance or complaints, questions on the forum/chat room or visitor messages, private messages, alerts, or you will receive a Grievance violation and possible immediate suspension. Questions or comments on how we approach the daily problems faced on our forums, chat, our purpose, values, supervision, decisions, rules and management of the website should be directed to CARM via email at We will not accept any arguments, comments, questions about the rules, or application of the rules on the forums. You may email a Grievance. It will be considered, but we do not respond to every email or complaint. Questions are answered in the rules, if your infraction not reversed on the forum account, the appeal was rejected. Sending to CARMstuff and contacting Matt/office with forum questions also considered a violation of grievance procedure. If you have questions concerning the CARM positions, policies of the Home Page website and written articles only then direct questions to

    1.Do not argue with the moderators/managers/admin in their enforcement of rules on the forums/profile messages, alerts, or email.
    2.Should you have a complaint, comment, or question concerning the forums or concerning any of the moderators or managers, then please email Diane S. at
    3.Note: Many offering a complaint concerning moderation of the forums have not read the rules or do not realize that the moderators are trained to enforce the rules and that our moderators do document and discuss rule violations with the administration, managers, and other moderators for their review on a private forum. Please first read all the rules again. Should you still have a question or comment regarding the rules, you may not question the moderators. Contact Diane at with an appeal. The CARM administrator in discussion with the managers and moderator involved will consider the appeal. If it is not reversed on your forum account within the week, consider the appeal not valid or rejected."
