* "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.

Return of the Pagan Definitions Game!
« on: January 07, 2014, 07:29:40 pm »
I'm sure some of you remember this from the old board. With the never-ending debate about what the definition of "Paganism" is, might as well turn it into a game!

Here's how it works: each poster 'defines' Paganism by comparing it to some item. The next poster then explains the definition, then posts a definitoon of their own. For example:
Poster A: Paganism is like cough syrup.
Poster B: Some people find it hard to swallow

Let's go:

Paganism is like duct tape.

There's a light side and a dark side and between the two you pick up a lot of fluff.

Paganism is like a dog scratching at the door to go out.
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

Once the dog goes through one door, it finds the next door to scratch upon.

No two Pagans will ever want to go in the same direction.

You can still make something yummy out of something stale from yesterday.

Paganism is like surround sound.
Deleted profile. Not playing with the fluffies. Not going to be attacked because someone took offense to a statement about someone else. Seriously.. snap out of it. The world isn\'t about YOU.

There is more than one right answer, and sometimes there is no answer.

Paganism is like a really damn big umbrella.

Flip it upsidedown and you've got a killer raft.

Paganism is like a box of chocolates.

Invariably, no matter how carefully you search, you're going to find into one that is full of nuts.


Paganism is like a bad TV sitcom.

It stays with you forever, but at least you don't get fleas.
