* "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.

Glamour Bombing
« on: July 18, 2018, 12:34:00 am »

Glamour bombing was mentioned in another thread, and it raised a question for me.

I'm familiar with the general concept of glamour bombing.

But, those of you who practice it:  Could you expand a little on the specifics of what you do and why?

I take it you meant my mention?

I never had a regular, serious practice of doing it, but I've done it here and there over the years. Hell, I did it back before I knew what I was doing. My husband even did it regularly for about a year without knowing it: he'd buy bags of small toys from the thrift store and hide them in little nooks and crannies around the neighborhood for people to find. Sometimes it would take weeks for somebody to find them.

To me, glamorbombing is primarily a magical strategy, but it can also double as offerings to genus locii. It's a piece of anonymous art of some sort that's left in a place with the intention to feed spirits, feel human curiosity and imagination, or both. They lift the veil just the slightest bit.

I plan on taking up stickering, as well as maybe making little pieces of collage or art or poetry and leaving them around the neighborhood or under people's windshield wipers. I may combine this with sigil work designed to make the person who found it stop, take a moment out of their busy, mundane life, and consider for a moment that the world is still full of wonder and the unknown. That's why the anonymity is important. Otherwise, it just becomes another PR trick of somebody trying to get famous on instagram or something.
