* "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.

Quote from: veggiewolf;87948
I use Neb - specifically, Neb.y - when addressing Set.  Then again, we have a relationship where my use of "My Lord" is completely appropriate.

 
What's the significance of Neb.y vs. just Neb?
Maker, though the darkness comes upon me,
I shall embrace the light. I shall weather the storm.
I shall endure.
What you have created, no one can tear asunder.

"Neb.y" is "my lord".
as the water grinds the stone
we rise and fall
as our ashes turn to dust
we shine like stars    - Covenant, "Bullet"

Opener of the Ways. I'm not trying to be pedantic here. I just want to point out that he is a god who can open *all* the ways, not just one of them. :)

 
I think I got it from this website, actually.

Quote from: Devo;86942
Sometimes, when Set and I are in serious mode, I use "sir".

Epithets are technically the best way to go. If I'm not mistaken, Rundle Clark states that epithets were almost always what was used in antiquity. That saying the actual name (Osiris, Bast, Aset, etc) was too powerful to be used just any ol time. So epithets were almost always used instead of the actual name. YMMV, but it's something to consider, at least.

I never thought about this at all......This will give me something to think about.
