* "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" Problem Logging In?

If you get an "Unable to verify referring url. Please go back and try again" error when you try to log in, you need to be sure you are accessing the board with a url that starts with "https://ecauldron.com".  If it starts with https://www.ecauldron.com" (or "http://www.ecauldron.com") you will get this error because "www.ecauldron.com" is not technically the same website as "ecauldron.com". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

"User Points" and "Thread Points"
« on: December 21, 2011, 03:16:38 am »
I was really just curious as to how User Points and Thread points were actually accrued?

User Points: Does this have to do with logging on, time spent on the forum, activities performed?

Thread Points: Does this only refer to threads you create?  Do you get points when threads are visited?  Replied to?

Not any problem, just my curiosity about how the system works.

This should explain how the points are given (at least it's what the designers have provided as an explanation -- I don't really knnow any more).
