* "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.

Do norse pagans put an emphasis on ritual purification?
« on: April 28, 2013, 08:29:48 pm »
I know that hellenismos requires a constant vigilance for miasma and thus ritual purification, but do norse pagans have similar attitudes to "uncleanness"? Beyond physical hygiene, I don't think I'd found much comments about spiritual purification in norse traditions.

I've never actually heard any mention of ritual purification within Norse Paganism. I think basic personal hygiene would be expected but beyond that, I'd say no.
