* "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 "".  If it starts with" (or "") you will get this error because "" is not technically the same website as "". Moving to the more secure "https" means it is more picky about such things.

Avatar Guidelines
« on: May 20, 2017, 05:32:02 pm »
Users who do not wish to see member avatars may disable them in the look and Layout area of their Profile settings.

All members may select any avatar available on our server (even if it does not met the size requirements for uploaded avatars listed below). Over 1200 avatars are currently available in our collection.

Many member groups are allowed to upload an avatar (or use an avatar on the web). For most usergroups, such avatars may be no larger than 128 pixels wide and 200 pixels high and must be 10k or under in file size. Certain usergroups (donors, for example) are allowed avatars with slightly larger file sizes. Animated avatars are not allowed. These limits are normally enforced by the the system.

Members who do not select or upload an avatar will have the Gravatar associated with their email address (if any) used. If they have no Gravatar, a face-like avatar will be generated (from a hash of their email address so the generated avatar should be unique on this message board) and used. Unfortunately, these automatic avatars do not show up in all areas of the forum. If you want to use them, it is best to download the image and upload it as a standard avatar (which will be used everywhere).

The Cauldron's server is expensive and requires monthly payments. Please become a Bronze, Silver or Gold Donor if you can. Donations are needed every month. Without member support, we can't afford the server.
