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.

Is CauldronMUX still around?
« on: June 17, 2019, 04:48:23 pm »
I've seen a lot of mention of it(CauldronMUX) around the site and am intrigued.
Tried connecting a few months ago but it didn't seem to be up anymore.

Does it still exist or has it been retired for the more modern Discord?

You guessed right - 'retired in favor of Discord' is exactly what we did.

As Sunflower said, it's been retired. However, it is temporarily up at the moment for some testing on my end. As long as it is up you are welcome to log in.  You can even use the html5 client I'm using CauldronMUX to test (the old Flash client died with Flash) at https://ecauldron.com/forum/index.php?page=cauldronmux -- I make no promises how long any of this will be available.

I see. Sad, but I'm sure folks find Discord easier to navigate.

Thanks for telling me, Randall. I popped on there and looked around. A lot of fun relics on there. I used to be a builder on multiple MU*s so I've got a soft spot for them. BUT! I'm really diggin' the Anachronism BBS! Reminds me of the new breed of "retro" cyberpunk games that've came out...but if anything it's the inspiration for such things. I've never tinkered with the old BBS stuff before, so I'm really excited. Is it gonna stick around?

If all they want to do is talk, it's much easier. Some folks are asking for a MU* of some type for creating online ritual space, some something may pop up. It's not a high priority, however.

I'll remember that. :)

Perhaps not with the current software, but Anachronism BBS is here to stay. I used to run a BBS back in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and putting up a new one has been a long term goal. Finding time to work on it isn't easy so it is a low priority, but at least I can play LORD. :)
