Hello there - my name's Shay, and I was a lurker/infrequent poster at the older versions of the Cauldron forums. (I always feel a bit awkward writing introductions, so please bear with me!)

I'm nineteen years old, and though I've been interested in learning about various Pagan religions since I was fourteen, it's only been in the past two years that I've been working on herding my eclectic path into something workable and coherent. I am, however, continuing to study various religions - both to help my path work and in an effort to discover a religion which feels like 'home' to me. Consider me an eclectic seeker for the moment.

Some other things about me: I live in a suburb of Vancouver, am the proud mama and head wrangler of two ferrets (Tika and Tasslehoff), will be attending college come September, write, read at a lunatic pace, and drink tea like every cup is my last.

Good to 'meet' you all,
Shay

Welcome back, Shay!

I remember you, too, because of your screen name.  Dragonflies are a "thing" for me.

Nice to see you back here.

Hello there - my name's Shay, and I was a lurker/infrequent poster at the older versions of the Cauldron forums.

Actually, not so infrequent, if I remember correctly.  You might want to check out the introduction thread for beehive members.  If you had more than twenty-five posts on the old board you qualify for 'grandfathering in' to full membership.

Introduce yourself in that thread and someone who can still sign in on the old board (it won't take my password anymore - I sign on as 'guest') can check your post count.

Squeee!!!!!!  (((Shay)))

Intermittent poster, perhaps, but not IMO infrequent.

I was just thinking yesterday (yes, yesterday!) of dropping you an email asking if you were intentionally not on TC because of the switch to SMF (there are a few folks who were posting right up to the switch but didn't change over, whom I suspect just felt that strongly about Beehive), or whether it was just part of the way your online activity has natural wax-and-wane cycles.

As Marilyn pointed out, you have enough posts on the old board to be an "instant" full member here. Be sure and take a look at the new rules -- especially those on quoting -- however, as they are a bit different here than on the old board. Smiley

Thanks for the welcome, everyone!

Actually, not so infrequent, if I remember correctly.  You might want to check out the introduction thread for beehive members.  If you had more than twenty-five posts on the old board you qualify for 'grandfathering in' to full membership.

So I've noticed; I actually really like it, it makes things a lot easier to follow when thread-drift happens. *hope I'm doing this correctly* I did read through the new rules and the like, but I wasn't sure how the grandfathering-in to full membership worked, whether it was a flat post count issue or something else, so I thought I'd be on the safe side and do a general intro. Good to be back, though!

Squeee!!!!!!  (((Shay)))

(((Sunflower))) right back at you.  Smiley

I was just thinking yesterday (yes, yesterday!) of dropping you an email asking if you were intentionally not on TC because of the switch to SMF (there are a few folks who were posting right up to the switch but didn't change over, whom I suspect just felt that strongly about Beehive), or whether it was just part of the way your online activity has natural wax-and-wane cycles.

You've got it right at the end, there; I wasn't even aware of the switch-over until I decided to get off my rear and come back. This past year has been relatively hectic for me, which meant I haven't had the time to be involved with any online groups or even to focus on my path any more than just keeping up with my daily practice (and even that was iffy for a while). Back now, though, and excited about it.
