« Topic Start: June 18, 2009, 08:15:15 am »

The current version of TCN: The Cauldron Network is being replaced by a new TCN. The old version on Kickapps has been somewhat popular, but it has turned out to have a couple of major disadvantages:

1) I selected it as a place to store member pictures, not as a social network. It's a great place to store pictures, but it is not much as a social Network.

2) It has become a spam magnet over the last couple of months with random Spammers creating profiles to link spam their web sites. I have been deleting an average of three spam accounts a day there -- and have probably missed some.

The new TCN is set up on Ning and is much more like what you are expected if you were expecting a social network. The members who tried the beta love it. It is a closed network. When you sign up, you will have to give your TC membername and a staff member will have to approve your membership before you can do anything but look around. This will stop the spammers in their tracks.

You can reach the new TCN at http://ecauldron.ning.com/  -- it will replace the link to TCN on the menu bar in the next day or so.  The old TCN will remain available (at a new link to be posted here) for a week or two so members can grab anything off of it they wish to.  It is closed to new members as of now, but the new TCN is open now at:

There were typos in the links, I've fixed them - in case you tried them and got nowhere.

Rather than rewrite my bio, I'd like to grab the old one off KickApps...only I don't see the link to the old TCN in this thread. Am I just missing it? Or is the link available somewhere else on the Cauldron?

I don't think Randall has actually posted it in-thread yet, but I believe KickAppsTCN is here:

Currently, it's

http://tcn.ecauldron.net/service/displayHomePageExperience.kickAction?page=Homepage&as=74081

This will be changing sometime in the next few days to a straight kickapps url.

Don't forget to update your TCN ID in your profile if your new Ning TCN id is different than your old kickapps one. Also, if your id has a space in it (like mine "Randall Sapphire"), you will need to remove the space when you enter the name in the TCN ID box on in your profile here -- for example, I used "RandallSapphire"

I made the same mistake and got all panicky, when my rl-name showed up  Cheesy
You can change it.

1) Go to the link in the upper bar where your name shows. (Up, right, corner, next to 'sign out').
This leads you to the ning-profile (seems to be the profile one can use in all the ning-communities - mine even is in German.)
There you can change the 'full' name and the URL.

2) Go to your TCN-Ning-My Page.
There go to 'Settings' in the right side Menue. Here - also - you can change full name and if you scroll down:
Here appears another URL - you can change this too and remove your rl name.

Done.  Grin
