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.

Part of the problem is that I really believe in keeping rules.

I believe in keeping rules: so long as it's done by someone else :D:

And you with that quotation from Rumi, too — come on, join us on the wild side. I know that's what the cats would say!

It's a mix of being afraid of getting in trouble, and believing that I need rules or I'll get all out of control and/or set the house alight. If I can remember that I am capable of being responsible for a few candles, I think I'll be all right. :D:

Oh. We may also have told the landlord that we only have two cats.

It's been a difficult time, trying to find a house...!

 
I thought anarchist were allowed to set and follow their own rules.

The Rumi quote is aspirational. :D:

Yep, anarchism isn't against rules, it's just against rulers (read:hierarchy).

It was a joke, not a political manifesto. (I'm not always very good at jokes. There's no reason to point that out repeatedly.)

Oh, I know, I got it :). It was mlt52's comment that seemed a little less tongue-in-cheek.

Yeah, I ignored the ban all four years of college. What can I say, I'm a "those rules don't apply to me" kind of person. :) The trick is to know EXACTLY where all your candles and incense are when inspection time rolls around. And when someone knocks on your door say "I'M IN A TOWEL GIVE ME A MINUTE" and rush around pushing things into drawers.

Exactly. I'd be one of those types too :P And I was never caught! Haha!
Our bedrooms were never inspected but my first set of flatmates had a jarred candle (might have been a Yankee candle) out in the living space and a word was never said. I'd imagine they're safer too :)
They tried to come into the bathroom once when I was wrapped in a towel! I was like 'HELLO! Can you not hear the shower going?! I'm in the nip!' XD Oh college accommodation memories.... :rolleye::

If you know the times for inspection I'd just hide the candles for that, then take them back out when they leave :P Maybe replace them with flowers or LED candles to hide the empty spots :D:

Well, how often are all three in the same place at the same time?  Technically, you only know you have a cat when you can see it.  ;)
