2017 Donation Drive -- Please Help Keep TC Online

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise just over $850 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 November: Only $124 more (after Paypal fees) needed to reach our goal! Please donate if you can.


* "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.

Hi, Sanctum,

Just so you know, I've moved this from 'Pagan Events and Conferences' (which is for upcoming conferences, conventions, meetups, Pagan Pride Days, and other events people might be planning on attending) to 'Holidays and Festivals'.

Interesting. I had never heard of it. Are you from an area where it is commonly celebrated?

It's a Slavic pagan thing, so I'm guessing that's why the familiarity.
