* "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.

So just an update on this, as it's a week away, does anybody happen to know the admission price?  We should also probably meet at the front gate before hand and have some way to know who is here for our group.  Say like a cloth or something.  Wear red, or something like that.  Thoughts?

Pagan Pride events are, by definition, free (it's part of the requirements) but they normally do a food shelf donation, and a cash donation ($5 to 10ish) would likely be very much appreciated (because the event isn't free to run!)

Per the Raleigh Pagan Pride website, admission is a donation of either cash or a food item. Information on this is listed on their site at the link below.

As for all of us identifying each other... I stick out like a sore thumb, Just look for the huge bald guy with the forked red/auburn beard and an X-Men tattoo on his inner left forearm.

Not all of us can be so... distinguished, hahahaha. So I like the idea of wearing something a specific color or name tags with our usernames or some shit like that.

... Although if I can get Fiancé to come then I'm making him ride so I'll be in a leather jacket with a pink-mohawked helmet. Gods bless motorcycles.

Maybe we should all get silly pink mohawks to identify each other. That would be awesome.

Aha, okay, I hadn't seen that.  I looked for it, but must of skipped over that bit of information.  And I've never actually been to a pagan pride, so it's all new info to me.  Very excited to go, though. 

So what I was actually thinking was either the same colored shirts which could get slightly confusing or just like a piece of red cloth tied around an arm or the waist, something like that.  If done correctly, could look quiet fashionable. 

And I guess it's agreed to meet at the front/main entrance?  I'll be there at or before 10.

Shirts or a cloth could work easily, just not red. Or blue. Sorry, grew up too close to Bloods and Crips territory to not see it as gang signs.


(For those of you who don't know, the Bloods are a notoriously violent nationwide street gang that are in a constant war with the Crips, who wear blue. Mainly they're both in southern Los Angeles, but there are a few territories in southern CT where I'm from that have been bad over the years.)


But any other color. maybe green?

Green works for me.

I was looking at the workshops that they're doing this year, and they're doing an intro to glass blowing workshop.  That'll be a lot of fun.  (I mean obviously we don't have to stay together the entire day, but I'm more than likely coming alone so hopefully someone will let me tag along with them like a lost puppy?)

Not sure if I'm going to be able to make it or not this year. A friend out by Charlotte just messaged me that her boyfriend seems to have gone missing and he was her source of transportation and can't get any help from anyone there. Not sure what all is going on but I may be out that way instead this coming weekend helping with grocery shopping and being generally supportive since she has no other family or friends East of the West Coast.

But if we can make it we'll be there at or before 10AM as well, though I won't be wearing green, lol. I own not one piece of anything green.

Well that's ok.  Hopefully you can make it.  Just say the secret pass code "pickled wombat wings" ;)

I'm going to have to write that one down, lol!

Looks like I'll be able to come after all. He turned up a couple hours ago. Ignoramus didn't bother sending any kind of message or calling.
Just disappeared after work until mid-afternoon.

Some folks, I tell you...

That's it. That's the password to find each other at the meet up. And Fiance is interested in coming so weather permitting we'll be on the bikes.

Although I haven't told him yet that I'm planning to meet up with you guys. I'll probably tell him on the way so he can't tell me I can't go because he's a worrywart hahaha. :ange:

Lol, what's he got to worry about? It's just going to be a bunch of Wiccans, Heathens, and assorted other flavors of Paganry. Most of us don't bite...

I only bite on request.  And we're at least 50% safer than some of the biker bars out there.

Oh I trust you guys, haha. Although I've met some of the one percenters around this area and while completely intimidating because I know what they are they're actually really nice guys.

Hey should we maybe think about PMing each other our real names or something before Sunday? Granted I have no problem saying my name is Sasha since I do it all the time but I know other people are more cautious of the interwebs (I clearly never learned.)
