* "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.

we rise and fall

I gather this is important for more than preventing some smuggler from selling it. But I can't figure out why it is important from the article. I gather it has something to do with the last sentence of the article '“It is a very important relief as it depicts a not yet discovered temple of king Seti I in Assiut,” Ahmed pointed out'. However, I can't see anything about a new temple elsewhere in the article. ::confused look::

The implication in the news coverage I've seen is that this comes from a temple that is not known to archaeologists/historians/etc: i.e. the temple exists, because this is an item from it. (i.e. identification on it does not match known temples). It has been looted (hence the tablet turning up for sale), but there are almost certainly other objects and information that might yet be found by people who will share the results with the world, rather than sell the objects on the antiquities market.

So, good thing/bad thing.

Thank you for the explanation. The excitement makes much more sense now.
