* "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.

Interested? Get FIT!
« on: September 11, 2012, 05:02:53 pm »
Now. To begin. I am an exercise fanatic. I love to workout. I love trying new things. I love physical activity. I also love competition, and even I, someone who enjoys working out, needs a bit of motivation from time to time to get me going on my sluggish days. I was thinking about creating a forum devoted to friendly, competitive (games, competitions and such) fitness/exercise. You will be able to earn badges by exercising and getting healthy and fit! Before I go full swing and add this, however, I would like to have an idea. Is this something you guys would join up and participate in? Or not? It's honestly up to you guys if you would like me to do this. I definitely want to, but I would like a little assurance a nice group of people are on the same page as me. I was considering making a whole forum for this, as I had a lot of ideas for competitions and games. A fun way to exercise. Ever hear "fun" and "exercise" in the same sentence and it be the truth? Sound good?

Note: I could not find the rules about advertising. If this is considered that, then a mod may of course delete this. I am in no way just trying to advertise or "gain people". I really would like to get a little community together to get fit while having fun and being healthy. So no offense taken if this is taken off because it is not allowed here.

Thank you everyone who takes the time to read this. I really appreciate it. I think together we could really make something fun!

I think there was a TC fitness group on some fitness/exercise web site for a while. I don't know if it is still active.

Was there? That's really cool! The web needs some fitness games to go around. There's a slew of websites promoting exercise and fitness, however, none really that get you up and motivated.

I'm pretty sure there was -- emphasis may be on the word "was" unfortunately.

Ah, that's a shame. :/ I did go and make the forum though. I don't believe I can advertise it on this forum though, can I? I do not want to post the link here, as I do not want to turn this into an advertisement thread, I know that isn't allowed (or that's what I gathered from the rules).

You can post a one-time announcement in the Member Announcements board.

IIRC, it was on SparkPeople.

We also have (had?) a "Healthy Living" group here.  I think it fizzled out shortly after it started.  Also, it was a moderated group and I'm not sure that the moderator for the group is still hanging around TC.

Ah! That must've been really awesome while it lasted! Well, if anyone happens to be interested, I posted a link in "Member Announcements" here. :) Suggestions and ideas are more than welcome.
