It's here somewhere. Probably near Lyric's Truffles. :D

 
I hope it isn't near her stash of Spam Recipes. :p

I hope so! It's an old Cauldron standby!
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

-Canticle of Trials 1:10

I'm sure they did. However, I hope we will have less need for them. A vain hope, I'm sure.

It's Official. Welcome to The Cauldron: A Pagan Forum's new online home.

 
On occasion of our latest grand opening, I offer this hymn.

I hear a Song of Fire;
see Light in the distance.
As moths to Her flame,
we begin to gather 'round.
We gather around Her
whose ancient home is the hearth,
the center of the family,
the first community.

(I've foung myself being saddened by the lack of recipe need.)
There is no inherent meaning to life.  Stop looking and give your life meaning.

Spammer blocking is hopefully better here.

And that's a good thing.  It's just kind of sad when a tradition fades.  Kind of like when the last kid in the family stops believing in Santa.  It's just not the same.

Wait, you actually WANT a bunch of recipes involving canned pseudo-meat?

I doubt spammer blocking is perfect here. However, in the 2-3 days since we have opened to the public about 125 spammer registrations have been blocked by the Spam-O-Matic mod alone. Mostly spambots.

I've temporarily closed the old board with a message pointing people to this new board. I've also changed most of the links in menus and such on the web site.

It's Official. Welcome to The Cauldron: A Pagan Forum's new online home.

 
Yay! This is awesome, and I love the new look of the forums. More clean and sleek design than the other one. To all you guys who worked and slaved over this new design: Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!

Yes, I am hyper today!

I'm glad you like the new design. It's standard vBulletin styles with some minor tweaking of some of the ones that did not want to play nice by Jubes.

I love the new forum, I'm a fan of vB so it was great coming on here to find that its now on vB. I like that you've had a proper fresh start as well, I found the old forum really intimidating because it was quite so "full" if you see what I mean >.<

Some of the boards I'm occasionally on have millions of posts. The 275,000 or so we had on the old board seem "uncrowded" by those standards. That said, I know what you mean. We'd restarted the board 5 times over the last 13 years and every time it has been good for the board.  This was the first time we had the option to bring the old posts with us. I'm glasd there were just enough issues with the result that we decided not to. The fresh start always seem to help.

Yay! I browsed around the old board for a bit and I must say, this one looks really cool!

Now to figure out all the neat things on this one since I was never a member on the old one.
