* "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.

RIP Jack Chick
« on: October 28, 2016, 07:52:14 pm »
Jack Chick, the author of the (in)famous Chick Tracts, has apparently passed away.

I have never encountered one of these tracts "in the wild", though I have seen several get the Mystery Science Theater treatment online (such as here). Who knows if the tracts will continue to be printed and distributed, or if something even stranger will take their place.

Oh yeah, I've read a number of them. I went to a fundamentalist high school so they were just...sort of there. Can't say I'm terribly sad at his death. Even ad a 13 year old conservative Christian I found them vapid and shallow....and that was before I saw the real humdingers.

If only his death meant no more tracts... But nope. He was no one-man act. There are heirs and disciples, and the vitriol will continue to flow.

Yup.

He won't be missed from this end (though I do feel for his friends and family who are dealing with the loss, as loss is tough).
