.Together We Thrive
Most of you do not know me, but I am or was, the new creator of a fellow Ning site, Wiccan together. For any members currently accessing http://www.wiccantogether.net, I have some unfortunate news. The site is temporarily offline until Ning and I can prove that I as the new creator of the site, can remain as the actual creator.
The previous creator, whose name is Eric, was responsible for putting malware on the site. the site was restored earlier this year, by someone who backed out of the deal. I was approached by the previous creator, to pay for the site. I said I would, and that's what we've been doing for weeks. going back and fourth between each other and Ning to do so.
Unfortunately, I had just received the site when he decided to create drama. He went behind my back, and told Ning he didn't authorize my access and completely made a fool of me and my intentions. Even after he personally sent me the verification details to complete the paperwork himself. As a result, he told Ning he wanted the site removed for good without any exceptions. And now this is why I redirected the domain wiccantogether.net to this site, so we can keep in touch while we figure out whose in the right. I apparently hadn't realized this but Ning has a 24 hour period for the previous creator to cancel a transfer. It's been way past 24 hours, and Ning isn't seeing it because of delays and evidence not yet presented to them in their records.
So for now, please use this network to communicate. I will be happy to help you out with anything you need. As a member of this network, we will have a merging of interests and beliefs.
I am sorry for the inconvenience, this should get resolved in a few days.
I apologize to any existing members if this bothers you. Amber Nelson is a member of my site and had approached me to offer a quick solution to my site as it is rather a huge network with lots of members. I have fallen victim to a malicious person and feel as though I am going to need the creative spark energy of the divine goddess to help us through this.
Yet, in return, I wish to get to know you all more. Amber and I have not known each other long, but we do agree on some key values which are important.
I hope you are well and it is nice meeting you all.
My heart goes out to you. I am sorry you are being faced with this problem. Of course you can come here. It would be nice to meet more members of your site and as you say, it is the sharing of beliefs and uniting of interests.
Please keep us posted what happens to you. If you need support from me, just know I am here. We haven't known each other long but this person you obviously have such an affection for, is clearly one who has an agenda. When it concerns innocent people, that's where we both I believe, have an interest to do what we can to prevent this person from making decisions to harm others. If this person attempts to sign up here, they will be banned. You have shared with me their details in private, so I know what to look out for. I am grateful your site is offline right now, as opposed to online with more harmful ads.
I as a fellow network creator would never promote a site to anyone, with harmful content. I wish all members of this site to know, that as the creator, I trust Wiccan Together and hope the best for this outcome to be restored.
Welcome home, Wiccans, Pagans and starseeds.
Thank you so very much for your support, Amber! It is appreciated.
It is possible this is the case. As a site with over 100000 members on it, it was perhaps the biggest online community apart from Pagan Space on the net as far as sites goes. As for its activity level, it was fairly active.
Indeed. Pagan Space has always been online for as long as I can remember.
I do have a quick question regarding Wiccan together. When i used to go on that site, the mod that was there at the time was a real you know what... and banned people just for the fun of it. One day i told someone to "get over it" and so as a result of that comment, since i last checked i have been on a permanent ban. So if you DO manage to get the site up and running again, will all the bans come off and will the perm banned peopel be able to access the site then? just wondering since i am one of them. My ID for the Room was MagikalKat.
Yes. the ban would be lifted by me. as some of the moderation staff were unavailable when I had reached out to comment on the state of affairs when I had inherited the site from eric, I cannot trust their intentions were of sound judgment at this time.
I have no problem, when Wiccan Together returns to reinstate your membership and I apologize for the injust treatment of the previous administration.
Even Eric's actions now do not promote support of a network of this magnitude. The previous creator, Michael Cowen, had also placed ads on the site furthering the decision to not trust certain members of previous positions of authority. I have been reading up on the history of Wiccan together, and apparently since its conception, there has been a few issues with members. Ones I am willing to fix, given time and the ability to actually do something about the issues caused in the past. Of course the same cannot be said for actual scammers or spammers and true troll like trouble makers, but your post suggests you were not one of those. :) <3 thank you for reaching out to me and us! I know this issue is important to you. I am a real person with values of real respect. I believe no situation cannot be solved with understanding of factors taken into account by all sides. Thus, I hope this answers your question! I am here for you if you need anything else. Apologies to existing members if this matter you feel, should not have been addressed in this manner.
ok thanx a bunch. :)
Here's an update on the situation.
1. I've accepted a staff position here at this site. If you need to reach out to me, I'm right here.
2. Wiccan Together is online once more. I may need to go through the transfer process again however I will do my best to keep you informed.
3. I'm changing domain providers, so wiccantogether.net is currently in transition. Please use http://wiccantogether.ning.com to access the site for now.
Thank you and have a great day!
