I recently added a new rule to the Etiquette that I feel is important to know when creating topics and they are allowed to go about their merry way. So please be sure to re-review the rules. Thank you!

Edit: Additionally I've added two brand new sections to the 'Art & Entertainment' section of our forums. One of which is the 'Temple of Visual Adventures'. I am certain both will eventually be used rather frequently, especially one in particular. I did not mention said forums name or purpose because it is not accessible nor viewable by non-members, so please do not speak of it outside of it say in 'The Babbling Brook'.

New sections that have been added:
Science & parascience
Spiritual/Meta Phenomenon
Temple of Visual Adventures
Flights of Fancy - Do not speak of this anywhere but within it or privately.
Shamanism

I also added a new question for the regular FAQ section in regards to an inquiry I felt guests might ask.

Additionally the rank bars have been posted within the 'Rank bar' topic. Check them out and give us your feedback on how you want things.

Be sure to check out these new sections and have fun!

I've noticed things have definitely quieted down since our start. I can't say I'm not disappointed to see things as quiet as they are, especially with the fact we've had some more newcomers and I haven't seen a single intro post from some of them as of yet.
With this in mind, I will be pruning the three users that I spoke of in the Grove's last newsletter since I do believe a sufficient amount of time has been given and passed for them to respond in some manner.

Lunasin and I can't do this alone, we really do need your help (the members). So please, if you haven't done so already, create an intro post or something. Get involved, read some of the topics at hand, comment on them something anything! I beg of you! *pauses* well...maybe not beg...not that desperate yet, but you get the idea.

Over and out!

Edit: In other news the general 'FAQs' have been updated yet again to include more questions or concerns that may arise. Check it out!

As of currently I have given us a new forum section called 'Council of Life' where members can seek much more personal life long advice for when they are in a crisis, just want to ask a simple question, etc.

I have also now given permission to guest to read and view our 'Overall/General' Topic sections within our forum. Let's hope that it brings more new people who are interested in helping us build our community!

Those are the current updates for this month.

I finished the topic on feasible elemental control in the Elemental section of the forums. So check it out in case you were following the topic.

I have well, good news for some. I have now granted new users the ability to create accounts and activate them, themselves. No admin confirmation for the time being. Let's see how well this little venture fairs and if it turns out well enough we may keep it like this.

Yay! More new topics! Check out the general section of the spiritual sanctum. There's also something down below in the, "Those who came before us" section about some of the Celtic gods.

There a new topics all around. So be sure you are scrolling up and down the Grove looking at the dates to see if there is anything new. In the Case Files Section under Reincarnation/Past Lives I have posted a topic related to Otherkin, so be sure to check it out if that is something you are interested in. ^_^

For everyone's information I have done some account purging. Meaning I have manually been going through our list of inactive users and deleting some of them. I will not delete all of them just yet in case the more recently activated new user accounts are indeed used. Eventually, however, I will be purging our members list entirely of non-active users.

Hey folks just thought I'd let you know a new topic has been posted in the " Sanctum of Misc. Information" section under "Temple of Visions". The new topic has to do with dream symbols and dream dictionaries and discussing what signs, symbols, etc are constantly misintrepreted. Check it out and let us know what you think!

Greetings everyone,
I added some fun topics (if you will) in our "Sanctum of Misc. Information" section. I also added a new forum topic section entitled 'Astral Travel / Projection' in this section as well, because I felt there is enough information out there that it could prove useful to have a section entirely dedicated to it.

I added some new ranks today:
Initiate 20
Adept 100
Teacher 350
Grove Master 500
Templar 750
Pryer Of Knowledge 1000
Grove Elder 1500
Ancient 2000
Ascended 5000

I was wanting to reward people for getting to certain marks so I tried to think of other titles they could earn, thus is what I have come up with. I chose Pryer as our "Cleric" type name because I favored the term after watching Stargate SG-1 and the episodes with the Ori. I'm thinking our Templar title is a bit plain though and may consider revising it to something more suitable. Any suggestions or questions about the new titles would be most welcomed and appreciated, just remember to create the appropriate topic in this section of the forums for that.

Hey guys! Smile I just tweaked some things! Check out the main page you'll see a brand new message that now shows up with the title: "Hail and well met traveler". I didn't even know I had this option. I really hope this will help bring some more people in. I also changed our forum category from "Paranomal" to "Community". Technically we are a community but we deal with so many topics it is hard to say where we exactly fit in. I figured switching us to "Community" section for forummotion searches would be even better for exposure. I am very happy and excited! (Can you tell? Does it show?)

In other news I am currently designing rank bars for us. Unfortunately I can't wip anything too terribly awesome up, but no one else seems to be able to give me anything I think would suit us so I am taking matters into my own hands. I'm having to use paint so cut me so slack. I hope to have something for you guys to look at here soon enough.

I've made some changes to profiles. You now have more nifty options to look at and play with.
Additionally, I made it so age is only viewable by Moderators and Admins. In light of realizing that possibly what may be hurting us was people looking at the average age of members here I decided to shut the feature off to guests and members (you should still be able to view your own however). Rest assured this will NOT effect the normal age limit in which one is allowed to join the forums.So check out what's been done and let me know what you think in the feedback section as always.
Bright Blessings and good fortune,
~Lady Ehzra
P.S. Be sure to let me know what you think of this little newsbar to I'm just trying out another tool I didn't know I had. I figure this is nifty for letting people know we are active. Later!

Greetings members,
I just moved the general interest section so it is directly below "The Ring of Elder Trees". So now when the main page loads you will see the general interests section right below it. I thought this would be better and more helpful to those who feel like they can't participate much in the other topic sections. I want people to know we talk about other things as well. Also I have the rank bars done but I ran into a little snag. I will try to enlist the aid of a friend (Azazel who is a new member). I am also considering rewards for those who actively are able to get friends to join that they know may prove to be active members of the community. We shall see. I am still debating on this.

~Namaste, best wishes, bright blessings, and good fortune.
~Ehzra

Well I'm not entirely big on the colors of this theme but I am trying to find us an alternative one. They still don't have any real good nature oriented ones and I have no way of trying to create a brand new theme on my own considering I don't have the tools. This is one theme of several. I'm already seeing some issues with it because whoever created had poor choice in taste for text and legibility.

Honorable Mention:
Is a new user group I created for those members who invite 5 members and successfully manage to get us active ones.

Heros:
A usergroup that I created for members who invite 20 people and are successful in aquiring new active members for The Grove.

Legends:
A usergroup that I created for members who invite 50 people and are successful in aquiring new active members for The Grove.

Epicly God-like:
a usergroup that I created for members who invite 100 people and are successful in aquiring new active members for The Grove.

If you want to be added to any of these groups or work towards joining these groups please let me know in say, "The Babbling Brook" what you are up to. You can even send me a PM if that suits your fancy better. We will need to discuss your progress after all toward these new found goals.

I sent some personal invitations to my friends on Paganspace.net and I hope to see some more activity in the coming weeks if Luna and Lugh so will it. Cross your fingers.

Hey guys wanted to let you know my friend that I asked if he would make us a banner finished it! It's absolutely gorgeous and I will be making a seperate topic for it to explain how you can go about putting it in your signature and what not on other sites or some place on other sites (your journals, profiles, etc). The banner is a bit big so if you have photoshop and can resize it I ask that you please repost so others can use the smaller banner and I will be extremely greatful for the assistance in this matter.

I added some more topics to the "Ring of Oak Trees" Section located within the Otherkin/Otherbeing section. So have a look if that is something you are interested in.
