* "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 failed at PBP this year, but I'd like another try. Doing it through TC is a great idea.

 
I was already planning on redoing it, even if it's just on my own, doing it here would be awesome!

I didn't do the PBP this year, but was seriously considering it for 2015.  However, I see on the FB page that Jess has decided to discontinue the project.

I know the Cauldron blog project fizzled this year, but would anyone be interested in doing a 2015 version in a vein more similar to the PBP?
They said that for this year's as well, so I wonder if it'll follow the same path.

I'm more than willing to help do a TC one again. Things got hectic so I stopped blogging. We mostly picked a smaller number to blog every month because most people were doing PBP as well.

It sounds like she's pretty firm on not continuing it, but we'll see if her mind changes.

Maybe between us, we can keep the things going thorough the new year.  If we go with an alphabetical pattern, it should be easier to maintain.  I had a thought: - how would it be assign two weeks per letter and let the individual participants decide how many posts they want to write per letter?  This might give a little more flexibility for those of us who find life suddenly getting hectic.

I like the idea of more flexibility.  We could also maybe do a group topic one week then free topic on the letter on the other week....people could do one or the other or both as they felt moved?  I have always liked the idea of having multiple people writing about the same topic and seeing what was written.

I completely spaced this week on what day it was.  I thought about my blog on Tuesday and sorted out my topic...then forgot until I saw this thread today!  But got a post written anyways :P

I like this idea a lot, if we can get folks who are willing to come up with, and agree on, the themes.  I think that might have been where we ran out of steam with this year's Cauldron Blog Project.

Having a running list of topics that people want to do can be helpful.  When I was working this years PBP, I kept a list in the file I was writing my blog posts in for ideas for upcoming letters.  Sometimes I would just come up with something that I wanted to write about and jot it down so I wouldn't forget.  I always tried to come up with the weeks topic at least a couple days in advance so I could let the idea simmer in my head for a bit before writing about it.

For a group thing, I would say have everyone pool topic ideas, and add them to the list unless someone voices a strong protest to one.  Part of the challenge of anything like this is that sometimes topics might be a struggle for you, but I love that, it makes me think about things I would otherwise shy away from.  If topics simply added to the list (instead of actively choosing what topic for each week) and we go through the list, it will make it a bit less work on the administration side too.

Just going to double-quote here.

I'm sort of a fan in continuing some sort of monthly theme in going forward because there were some of us who liked the idea of having the obligation to post only be monthly, even if we were or weren't doing PBP. If there is some way to continue that going forward as well as allowing people to have weekly posts, I would gladly like to help out.

I think the reason why we petered out was because there was so few of us participating, it was hard to keep the rest going as well, which is why I think PBP has been so successful, y'know?

I'm pretty much good with anything if it can be managed fairly easily.  

What about offering up the following options:
  • Alpha posts - 2 weeks per letter; left up to the individual if they want to do one post per week or per letter.
  • Monthly (or bi-monthly?) theme - To be determined as a group prior to the beginning of each month.

Leave it up to individual participants if they want to do one or both of the options. This would give some flexibility to folks who might not be able to keep up with a weekly posting schedule.

I like dedicating two weeks to each letter and letting each member decide how many they want to do for each letter.

I also like the idea of a monthly group topic.  Again this could be a single post or more if you get inspired!

Having just one monthly topic and keeping the two weeks per letter, would allow people who want to do more to still have a good structure for it, but it also would allow for people who only wanted to do one or two a month to do the ones they feel moved to do.  Plus only having one monthly topic to settle on as a group is much easier I think to keep up with.

I'm going to run with the alpha two-week periods and a separate monthly theme.

To keep from completely hijacking this thread (too late!), I've set up the CBP 2015 thread here.  The basic format is there and we can iron out any details as we go.
