* "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.

The Gorsedd is not a Neo-Pagan organisation, but a non-religious academy for Welsh culture. Meso-Druid and Neo-Druid organisations draw a lot of inspiration from them:
http://www.gorsedd.cymru

This one emerged in 1909-1912 (though their mythic history goes further back), and OBOD split from them in 1964:

The Loyal Arthurian Warband has been involved in the public debate about public access to Stonehenge:
http://www.warband.org.uk

The Glastonbury Order of Druids (very inclusive):
http://glastonburyorderofdruids.com

The Druid Network is not an order, but a network - the first Druid one to be acknowledged as a religious one by British authorities:
https://druidnetwork.org
