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.

As you know, The Cauldron: A Pagan Forum is no longer on a free server and needs monthly donations to pay for our Virtual Private Server.  While we will be happy to accept donations in any amount directly through Paypal, we've noticed that many donations are in the amounts of 5, 10, or 15 US dollars. We have therefore created the Cauldron Supporter and the Bronze, Silver, and Gold Donor membership classes with some minor special benefits for people who make these common donations via the "Donation Subscription" feature in the Profile area (go to your Profile and click on the "Donation Subscriptions" link in the Manage Profile menu).

DONOR MEMBERS

For those willing to make a monthly donation (or a larger annual donation) we have three levels of "Donor" memberships: Bronze Donor, Silver Donor, and Gold Donor. You have the option to donate once  for a month of donor level membership, donate for a full year of donor level membership, or setup an automatic monthly Paypal subscription that will renew your donor status each month in the Donation Subscription area of your profile.

Bronze Donors (US$5.00/month donation) currently get the following special benefits:
  • a Bronze Donor Badge that will appear on your posts
  • access to our private "Donor Board".
  • do NOT see see Forum area ads
  • can see whether their Personal Messages have been read
  • can use use their own avatars (stored off-board)
  • can have larger signatures
  • can have multiple commercial links in their signatures
  • can have an ecauldron email address (and several other ecauldron google apps) -- created upon request

Silver Donors (US$10.00/month donation) currently get the following special benefits:
  • a Silver Donor Badge that will appear on your posts
  • access to our private "Donor Board"
  • do NOT see see Forum area ads
  • can see whether their Personal Messages have been read
  • can use use their own avatars (stored off-board)
  • can have larger signatures
  • can have multiplecommercial links in their signatures
  • an have an ecauldron email address (and several other ecauldron google apps) -- created upon request
  • (available soon) can have a personal Special Interest Board that they moderate (See Personal SIG Rules -- not yet available) on any topic suitable for the board.
  • can have a text ad that appears in rotation on the message board -- ad subject to host approval.

Gold Donors (US$15.00/month donation) currently get the following special benefits:
  • a Gold Donor Badge that will appear on your posts
  • access to our private "Donor Board".
  • do NOT see see Forum area ads

  • (available soon) can have a personal public Special Interest Board (and a personal private Special Interest Board) that they moderate (See Personal SIG Rules -- not yet available.).
  • can have a text ad that appears in rotation on the message board -- ad subject to host approval.

All Donor member benefits last for one month (from the date you donate) -- one year if you elect an annual donation. They can be extended by donating again through the Paid Subscription area of your Profile (or by setting up a monthly donation subscription).

CAULDRON SUPPORTER MEMBER

For those unable to give a monthly donation, but who would like to help, we've created the Cauldron Supporter membership. It lasts lasts for three months ($10 one-time donation), six months ($15 one-time donation), or one year ($25 one-time donation) depending on the amount of your donation. Cauldron Supporter members have all the features of Regular Members plus the following features:
  • do NOT see see Forum area ads
  • can see whether their Personal Messages have been read
  • can use use their own avatars (stored off-board)
  • can have multiple commercial links in their signatures without meeting the 75 message minimum.

If you already have a Bronze, Silver, or Gold Donor membership, you should already have access to all the new special features. I did the updates before making the announcement.

The first message has been updated to remove the "(available soon)" comment from the Donor Ads description as they are NOW AVAILABLE. These ads appear after the last message in a thread if there is more than one message visible on the page.  If you are a donor, see the Donor's Chamber private board for more info.

Note: You can use this to advertise your legal business, your blog, your web page, etc.
