Help YOUR #1 Pagan community grow.

Sorry you finished your invitation limit.
I think I seen a YouTube video about this topic but I cannot remember who did the video. I think that a lot of the issues we see coming from differences in practices and experiences comes from fear. People get so wrapped up sometimes in what they've learned must be absolute truth that they lose all common sense. It's okay to be different. And its ok to be wrong sometimes. Ive never met a person that was always right. They may have been lying to themselves and /or to everyone else. Being full of shit no matter how right you try to convince other people you are, still makes you full of shit, no matter how many times you say otherwise. The experienced person/witch/pagan learns that probably the only absolute truth out there is that everything changes and what works for one person doesn't necessarily work for everyone else or possibly even anyone else. I doubt anyone's sincerity and experience that tries to convince others that their brand of witchery or paganism is wrong. Experience just says otherwise. You say something won't or cannot work? I bet that I can find someone that does make it work for them.
I like your statement about walking on eggshells because other people choose to live in them. So many times you see others bullying those that challenge their beliefs. Anyone feeling the need to do that to anyone is definately living in an eggshell and expecting everyone else to live with them in it.
Ive gotten out of the habit of using a pendulum but I do agree that they seem to almost have a personality all their own sometimes. I've made a lot of pendulums in the feild, using nails, sewing needle, necklace, ring, etc. I appreciate your post as I think that it has inspired me to start working with them again.

We moved to a new platform because we outgrew wordpress. This one can handle many more users online at once without breaking core files during updates, and so that security feature alone is why we had to make the switch. I'm sorry if this caused you any problems, we've got a custom freelance developer hired working on porting over all the data but it takes time and money which we've got so please be patient and we're sorry that we chose such a rudementary platform to start with. Independence is key, but so is unity, and to do both, my expertise were called in to assist with choosing the right option for us which I gladly participated in so we could thrive together. Right now we're using PHPFox and it has a proven track record of hundreds of thousands of users on sites using it, which is where we were with Ning before they decided to play micromanagement games with hosting Pagan Space. So, we're currently trying to export old site data as well over here, to make our community alive once more. Which is why we decided to move, as it is a process to be able to feel like we're truly a community collective in self ownership of equal standing with one another as a place of spiritual growth, homely diversity and a sense of belonging. During our journey moving away from that platform, we've recently outgrOWN GoDaddy web hosting, so we switched to HostIso and we're on a dedicated server. We're currently paying hundreds a month for this setup, but it is needed because of the infrastructure needed to pull off a community setting like the one we had before for a lot less on a cloud service. This way we have more control and can give more to the community because we're creating the ability to do just that, with customization that's been recently made available to us. That's why it is taking longer than usual to setup. I'm a tech advisor here presently so if any major problems happen with the site, I'm usually here to fix things or pass the problem on to the main community managers Mat and Chandler. I do a little development work and research as well, so we're working with several experts in different fields to make this work and feel more professional. Which we thought we were getting before, but we were given the run around, so it's from the ground up this time. In my opinion, due to its ability to hold itself up very well cross server and domain migrations and the ability to easily update or add sections as needed without breaking, PHPFox is here to stay as our community platform and mobile apps are on the way. Things aren't perfect yet, but will be improving because I'm a part of the team that has given over the technical means and the license holding rights to make it happen. Thanks for your interest in the site so far, I am happy to help you if you have any questions.
