2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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.

icons, reputation, and points
« on: December 07, 2014, 06:18:27 pm »
What do all the different icons under a user name mean? What is reputation? How do I get more? What about "points"? What are they all about? How do I give and receive them? Sorry for so many questions at once. LOL

Doing this off the top of my head, so I may miss a couple of items:

  • Membership Level and Stars - IIRC, these are designations based on your experience points, which are earned for forum activity.  If you go to the Community Tab and click Experience, there a lot of information there regarding points, including some of the ways they can be earned (see the Earn Points tab).
  • Designations for Hosts, Staff, SIG Leaders, and Donors - These badges let you know if someone is a Forum Host, Staff Member, Special Interest Group Leader, or Donor to the site.
  • Achievements - Icons to indicate that you've accomplished certain things on the site.  If you hover over the icon, it will tell you what it represents.
  • Trophies - These are for high scores for games in the Arcade.
  • Reputation Bars - These are based on the reputation points. Forum users can give reputation to posts that they find particularly helpful or informative by clicking on the star at the bottom left of the post.  You also have the option to leave negative reputation if you find a post particularly problematic.
