* "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 "".  If it starts with" (or "") you will get this error because "" is not technically the same website as "". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Recently my wife bought we a valknut without knowing the meaning behind it, it tried it on. I've read some places that once it has been worn you have made a commitment to odin.

Just putting it on is not a commitment.

That being said, I honestly wouldn't wear it without a commitment. It's a symbol of sacrifice and binding, you see.  While others may disagree with me, I don't think it is meant to be worn casually as a symbol of Asatru.  

A Mjollnir is a lot better as a casual symbol.
