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.

Mourning
« on: March 01, 2013, 06:09:22 pm »
I have a family member who is likely to die very soon, much sooner than I had expected, and I am realizing: I have no idea what the correct protocol is for mourning someone recently deceased, as opposed to honoring your other akhu.  Help?

To be honest?  She's someone I love deeply, and I also feel extremely unemotional about this.  Really I just want to make sure that I'm doing everything I can to help her make her way safely.

The post is old, and my reply is unrelated to the original post, but I wanted to let you know that I found that incredibly healing and helpful. Simply beautiful and very meaningful to me. So thank you.
