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 13 Sept 2019: $656 donated. $6 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.

You pick up all the rest of the work, though- like, oh, actually posting in the SIG. Which I never seem to do. :ashamed: So we even out. ;)

To keep myself from getting sidetracked from this project, I'm going to post here when I update the database. Hopefully it will be every few days.

5 added today!

 
Another 5! Only... 200+ to go. :eek:

I feel so poorly read! :ashamed:

Once we've gotten a good number of the resources up, we'll get started on the next portion of the database: the Beginner's Guides to Celtic Religions. We'll have some consensus-made definitions of different paths, information on deities and other spirits, first-hand accounts of practices and festivals, etc. But I want to get at least two-thirds of the extant resources up before adding anything else to the to-do list!

And a big thank you to you, Aster, and the rest of the SIG. We couldn't do this without you!

 
What really sucks is that my Library hardly has anything that deals with the Irish. It's mostly Civil War stuff, than anything. Thanks for doing this for those interested in reading these books.

You may well be able to get books your library doesn't own via either a regional library system or via Interlibrary Loan (which is a slightly more formal method of getting books from elsewhere)

How that works varies a bit from library to library: if you want to PM me your local library system, I can help you dig into what the options might be for you and how to ask more about it.

The one thing about this is that there's usually *some* human interaction in the process, so for people where privacy is a huge issue and who are living in a small town (or where the library staff know your family members, etc.) I always want to give that caution.

(Librarians *should* be really cautious of patron privacy - it's one of the big key professional ethics things. However, especially in very small libraries, that isn't always the case - or just isn't entirely realistic, because of the physical space/staffing/etc.)

You might have noticed that the database is pretty sparse so far. We're working on that, but we could really use your help.

We have a downright massive list of resources compiled by Finn and Aster Breo, but none of us has read all of these books, and there's only so much information one can glean from the internet; this makes tagging the resources a little tricky. And that's where you come in!



I'd like to help with your database. I'm guessing you probably still need help, but haven't seen anything recent about volunteer efforts. Tell me what needs done and I'll tell you how I can help (with my limited tech-know how- though I'd be happy to grow my skill set so I can be more useful)

For quite some time now, Finn and I have been working on creating a database for resources on all things Celtic. (If you were with us before the move to vB, you may remember the short-lived TCN version.) Thanks to Randall, we now have a WordPress blog up and running where we can easily catalog many different kinds of resources and search with ease.

You can view the database here: http://hazelandoak.ecauldron.net/

Comments are currently enabled, but first comments by a poster must be approved by Finn or myself, to keep down spam. We ask that if you do comment on the WP blog, please use your TC name so we know who you are. In each resource post is a link to either discuss the resource here on TC, or request a thread on TC- we strongly encourage you to keep reviews and discussions on TC, and use the comments on the blog for notes about other editions, additional places to find the resource, etcetera.

We have a massive list of resources to add (standing at 219 as of this posting) compiled by Finn and Aster Breo- if you'd like to help out, please see the post below! And as always, if you have any questions or concerns, don't hesitate to speak up!

I cannot get this to open on my PC or my phone. The PC can't find the page, and the phone spits me out Drupal errors. Is it bugged, or am I not using the right browser? I use Chrome on my phone, and Firefox on my PC.

It's some type of Drupal error. Unfortunately, the error will not even let me log in so I can't fix it easily. I'll put it on my list, but unfortunately there are a lot of higher priority items there at the moment. :(

The link to the Hazel & Oak Resource Database is no longer working. I wonder if the Database still exists and can be revived here with a working link. Does anyone here on the Cauldron know anything about the Database? Any information would be appreciated.

Looking into this. I hope it does still exist somewhere, though even if it does, it might be a while before it can be made accessible again. (Thank you, btw, for your excellent phrasing here; it facilitated me going, 'Oh! Looking into this! Good plan!' and suiting my actions to my thoughts.)

The various SIG subsites died years ago for lack of use. I may still have a backup somewhere, but I'm not sure they could easily be revived as the software they were running is (now) ancient and may not work with current versions of php. I will look into it, but I can't promise when or positive results.

As I recall many of the links in this resource database were to no longer functioning sites, however. 

Something like this could be rebuild in our new wiki by interested TC members. The nice thing about the wiki is wiki pages are stored as text files (instead of as data in a database), so it is fairly future-proof. Even if the wiki software is someday no longer functional due to php progress, the data is still easily available in human-readable text files.

Thanks for this information, Randall. I am not too tech savvy, otherwise I would be inclined to look into rebuilding the resource on the wiki pages. I will see what I can do. I have a bunch of writing projects for this Fall, but maybe I will add developing a list of Celtic Polytheism Resources. I will continue to look for books and websites as I have time and energy. Thanks again.
