* "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.

I'm not sure if I was here longer than you, but I can do better than tell the whole story.  I found the link to the original thread it came up in:

linky linky


That one only got me to a Delphi login page, but this one worked.

Y-you mean you don't know that Brighid is Aset's long lost daughter?  You can tell because snakes.

2. If we all would just realize that we're descended from Her, the world would be fixed.


Erm.... what about the Australian Aboriginals who were cut off from other humans for 80,000 years? She insists everyone is descended... clever, that

Maybe at some point you got yourself a Delphi account for TC's incarnations there, and since it was TC, reflexively set it to "stay signed in forever" (or whatever terminology Delphi uses for that)?

Alas, all but the first two (which are both in the list you linked earlier, I believe - ADM and Grey Mists) on Andy's list are for Beehive threads, which means no accessible archive:cry:.  (I actually tried, even though I was pretty sure what would happen, because the Narnia Flounce thread is the one that people kept on chatting in loooong after the OP flounced [which IIRC was on the very first page], until, oh-so-Cauldronlike, the convo turned to food, and it eventually morphed into that wonderful discussion about cookbooks.)

I don't think I have an account there.  I mean, I had no reason to create one....

I miss that thread, too.  And looking at the SMF board, there is just not really enough quality crazy to amuse myself with.  Although that could be because I have more unpleasant emotions connected to them due to being staff for a good chunk of our time there...

Sadly, new version of PHP do not play well with old versions of Beehive -- and trying to update the databases of old versions of Beehive to work with current versions requires 10-15 successful updates. Unfortunately, successful updates are very rare with older versions of Beehive. :(

Some of the highlights of this person's argument:

1. Aset was once a real person and was the first anatomically modern human.  
2. If we all would just realize that we're descended from Her, the world would be fixed.
3.  Tons of words in languages that have no relationship to Kemetic are references to Her simply because they contain letters that look sort of like "Isis."  Because Isis was totally the Kemetic name for Her anyway.  Oh wait.  
4.  Only Aset-worship could have led to the Neolithic revolution!  (I think that's what the author is trying to say, anyway.)  
5.  Jesus was actually secretly one of Her worshipers; millions of Christians have had everything backwards for two millennia now.
6.  The most important feature of anatomically modern humans is having two eyebrows.

 
You know if we thrown in that whole Aset-Ka business, plus a few Dracula references and a dash of Scientology we could have a pretty wild conspiracy theory, or the beginnings of Dan Brown's foray into urban supernatural fiction.

(For those who may not know what I mean by Aset-Ka...hang on to your hats. A link giving the long description. The cliff notes version: Secret society that combines equal parts esoteric ritual, modern day vampire subculture, and some strange mythology about Aset being their progenitor a.k.a. mother of vampires or "vampyres")

Didn't Ann Rice do that already?  I vaguely remember a book in which ritual cannibalism in ancient Egypt or Mesopotamia or somewhere gave rise to modern vampires.

Yep.  Queen of the Damned.  Although I don't think the cannibalism lead directly to the creation of vampires....it's been years since I read that book.

I can't access any of the non-Delphi forum threads either. :(

There is another Delphi thread available though: "Elven goddess of the Earth?" I'm reading through it right now. :D:

Cannibalism (funeral rites for their mother) was occurring in the scene when Maharet and Mekare (the red-headed twin witches) are abducted by Akasha's army, but no, it wasn't directed related to the turning/creation. Mekare convinces an evil spirit to plague Akasha and Enkil for abusing them (won't detail it here), and when the nobles try to murder the murder the monarchs (for all the trouble the spirit is causing) the spirit takes over Akasha and "turns" her into the first vampire as she's laying there dying.

Akasha turns Enkil, one of them turns Khayman, Khayman turns Mekare, Mekare turns Maharet, annnnnd it all goes from there.

Now see, the only thing I clearly remember from that book was the gendercidal lunatic.

Okay, I'm totally confused. I knew that things were getting bad but I didn't think it was this bad. Running to hide under a rock.
