* "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.

Good ways to invoke Hades
« on: February 21, 2017, 04:47:07 pm »
How might I go about invoking Hades, aside from libations and pounding my head on the ground? Anyone know of any good resources, link, tools I could use?

Well, I've got a copy of Disney's Hercules...have you tried watching it seventy-six times?

Just trying to be funny; this is not an area I have any personal experience in. Still, looking at the question as an outsider, how would you go about establishing a connection with a fairly well-known but somewhat reclusive human celebrity? In order of increasing effectiveness, this is what I can think of:
  • The direct approach: Write him a letter, and hope that it stands out from the rest of the fan and the junk mail.
  • Send him a nice gift, especially if you have some idea of what he likes. Don't cheap out, here ("Saving the good Scotch for the company, huh?" [/Brad Shirk])
  • Does he have an agent? Particularly if you have some kind of commercial venture in mind.
  • Are you friends with one of his friends? That's probably most effective.

As an aside, in my own walk I have found that personal letters written to Deity are highly effective, particularly if they are then "sent" in some ceremonial manner, such as burning. Note that when I say "effective" I mean, "Conveys my own thoughts and feelings and communicates a willingness to receive same from the other end," not, "Santa brings me just what I asked for!" There is a difference.

Just wanted to amplify on this: When I say "agent" I'm not talking an office, business cards, and "Don't call us, we'll call you." I'm thinking more of a type of personality. An agent is someone you can approach directly and say up front, "I'm looking to set up a meeting with Joe Famous," and have him respond, in so many words, "Yeah, I can do that, but I want a little something out of the deal. Say a nice dinner with the wife at a top-flight restaurant."

A friend is likely to feel offended and used if and when they realize that you have been using them as a stepping stone to the person you really want to meet. An agent realizes, "It's just business."
