2018 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise about $650 ($200 less than 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 23 Sept 2018: $737.91 donated. That's $137.91 more than needed to reach our minimum goal!


We've gone noticeably over our minimum for the first time in 5 years. Could we make $750 by the end of the drive on 30 September? It would be wonderful if we could, but the pressure is off thanks to our generous donors!


* "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.

Hello from a lurker!
« on: November 12, 2017, 11:25:34 am »
Hello, everyone!

I am actually a long, long, looooong time lurker.  Recently I have been feeling the bug to comment on posts and realized I have never introduced myself!  I could have sworn I made a small post when I joined but... nope... I don't seem to have any posts~  Well, today I am remedying that! 

Hi! I'm Preyna!

So, firstly, I do believe in an ultimate, Supreme God that embodies more of a yin/yang principle.  I am foremost a Christian, more specifically, a follower of Christ and his teachings of love and compassion.  I personally feel that many of these simple, original teachings have become perverted and twisted through the centuries, creating a hubristic culture of divisiveness and self-righteousness. 

I am also a very spiritually minded individual.  I grew up around spiritual understanding and the "supernatural".  I believe that all things have energy and most things or beings have a spirit/soul.  I acknowledge great beings, gods, do exist but I do not worship them, although I have been known to give them some of my deepest regard and respect.  For this reason I most likely fall under Christo-Pagan, but because I do not worship other deities I have often held back from that status.

I am always interested in learning just about anything and I have enjoyed reading the posts here at The Cauldron for all the wonderful insights everyone has presented through the years.  And I do love how it is welcoming to people of all faiths. 

I will say I hope to start engaging in some of the discussions around the forum.  I'm a terrible lurker, but I will try~!

Hi Preyna!

It's nice to get to know you! :)

Hello and welcome

Thank you both very much for the warm welcomes! 

On a side note, I realized I didn't explain how I'm a "long time lurker", oops!  Many years ago I stumbled on TC looking for insights into some questions I had.  I have a habit of not signing up for a site immediately... so I never created an account.  Then, I finally got around to making one but came up with a random name.  IRL got busy, so I didn't visit for a few years.  When I came back, I couldn't remember the account I made!  I've not yet remembered or figured out what it was, but a couple years ago made this account.
