Welcome back to the Christian Teen Forums. We have been upgrading our forum software and it took a lot longer than originally anticipated. Thank you for your patience.

We are still working to bring some add-on features back, so it will be a continued work-in-progress. If you have any questions, feel free to post and ask away.

  1. Important announcement in the announcement forum, take a look! :)

  2. To those who still linger around CTF, welcome! You may be asking..."Who's this Will guy, and why is he making an announcement?" For those of you that don't know me, my name is Will and I've been a member on this forum since 2011 when I was 16 years old. I was a moderator/counselor for a number of years before resigning due to personal reasons. I have been talking with Cary (owner of CTF) for the past year for regaining staff status as an Administrator for a couple of reasons. I still hold CTF near and dear to my heart, as I have formed lifelong friendships on here. Unfortunately the site isn't as active as what it once was, and some spammers/trolls have taken over. Cary has graciously granted me the opportunity to work alongside him as well as the existing staff (yoda and Nicene Nerd) to help somewhat revive the forum. My first thing that I want to take care of is to get rid of all the spam/troll posts to clean up some of the "war zone". Secondly, I know forums are a dying fad, so I don't expect the forum to blow up with 100+ members. My vision for this forum going forward is to create a tight nit community of old members as well as new members who can fellowship in Christ together. I plan to send out an email in the coming months that will hopefully gain the attention of some of the older members to see if they'd be willing to pop back into the forum every once in a while. With that in mind, this site is still centered around teen Christians, but older members are still welcome to come as you please. Many young people can benefit from our wisdom that we've gained now that most of us older members here are in their 20's (or older). And, I'd love to talk to friends that I haven't communicated with for years, so please, join us! The last and exciting announcement that I bring to you is that I am also bringing Boogles back as a moderator. Boogles was a moderator even before I joined this site and has much more experience and relationships than I have gained in the time that I've been here. Let's all congratulate Boogles coming back as a staff member to support us in our pursuit to develop the tight-nit community we once had. This isn't my whole game plan, so expect to see more announcements as plans start to unfold. Best Regards, Will
  3. I want to know your thoughts: Would you find it worth it to re-open a backup forum for CTF that I created in 2013 for the somewhat active members to migrate to? (see below for more details).

  4. Definitely chrome. Used firefox for a time, not too bad, but I like the simplicity of Chrome. Never was a fan of internet exploader or Edge. Only use safari on my Iphone.
  5. Oh hai thar

      Yes! Somebody got it! Haha, I was afraid I was the only one on here who still watched Looney Toons!

  8. I removed it when I was getting background checks for my new job, as I didn't want my email nor face to be tied back to personal accounts
  9. WHOOP WHOOP 'Twas a pleasure meeting you as well!
  10. I'm an ISFJ, so I'm a mega introvert. I love my alone time, but people tend to take that the wrong way. I love everyone that I'm close to and I like talking/spending time with them, but my alone time is much needed.
  11. Thanks! I wasn't expecting to win anything, it's a pleasant surprise!
  12. Aww, thanks Jazzy, I appreciate it! I love da kitties!
  13. It's possible it could be a bad update. You could always roll back that update by going to system restore. Doing a system restore only rolls back system files, so any word documents (etc) should be unaffected. I'd back them up anyways just in case something goes wrong. I'd probably choose a week or so to roll back to to be on the safe side.
  14. My computer is doing something similar. For my computer, my processor is going out and can't processes much audio/video any more (although it does anything else normally). But that may not be the case for yours. In your case it could possibly just be a graphics driver that needs to be updated. You can do this by pressing the start menu, right clicking my computer, and press "computer management" or on some operating systems it's just "manage". If you have windows 8 with no start menu, you can just do a search for computer management. Once there, you can go down on the left hand side where it says "device manager" - left click that. Expand display adapters, and right click > update driver software. And let it find the update via windows updates. If this method doesn't work, I'd recommend using a different video player. Windows media player stopped working altogether for me, so I now use everything via itunes, which seems to work a lot better so far. You can change file extensions and what player they're opened with by right clicking the file and pressing "open with" and make sure to check the box that says "always use this program to open this type of file" when choosing the new program. One optional thing you could do (which I'd save for last) is update your Codec pack (can download codec pack at ninite.com, just find the one that says K-lite Codecs). You can google codecs, but basically they help open files that originally that operating system can't handle well/can't open at all. Codecs can be a pain so I'd wait for last on this one.
  15. I had them reallllly bad on my back in middle school because I grew so fast. Over the years they faded, so yours should fade too. But, I'm fairly certain there's creams to hide them or make them disappear faster.
