2019 Donation Drive

It's time for our annual Server Donation Drive! We need to raise at least $650 (same as last year) to keep The Cauldron's server online for another year. Please help! Either hit that Paypal button to the right and make a one-time donation in any amount or set up a monthly Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor subscription. You can find more info in this message!

Donations as of 16 Sept 2019: $660 donated. $10 more our minimum goal! Let's beat last year's total of $99 more than the minimum!


Note: This total is updated manually, usually once a day


* "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.

About the Prayer and Energy Requests Board (Special Rules)
« on: October 24, 2015, 06:27:29 pm »
Board Purpose:

This board is for requests for other members to pray for someone, send healing energy, and such positive requests. Unlike most other boards on The Cauldron's message board, this board is not intended for debate and discussion. This board is not the place to argue with people because you disagree with their request or would handle things differently. Note, however, that polite suggestions that people also seek mundane aid are appropriate if it really looks like the person is able to do so but might not be planning to do so. Any such suggestions must be positive and practical.

Additional Rules for this Board:

1. Please limit requests to serious needs for yourself, your family, and your friends. Only request positive assistance. Requests that the staff considers beyond the pale may be deleted.

 2. This is not a debate and discussion board. If you disagree with a request for some reason (e.g. personal morality, your religion's teachings, etc.) just do not reply to it. Do not lecture the person on their request.

3. Suggestions of mundane ways to help deal with a situation, if presented politely, are also welcome -- but do not assume that a request for prayer or healing means that the person has not or will not seek mundane aid for the problem as well.

4. If you are requesting help, remember that while prayer is good, prayer combined with mundane action -- where possible -- is even better.
