You're going to lose people if you put 'pagan' in the byline.

I've hung out at a lot of boards over the years. The ones that don't tout any particular religion have better content, they have knowledgeable readers.
The pagan boards generally have "Divination" as a subforum, and it's full of people talking about what decks they have, how "powerful" they are, how they "cleanse" them, what crystals they keep with them. But no evidence that any of these people actually know how to read them. I don't know why this is, since pagans exist who can read cards, etc., but they're not at those boards. And those boards are the pits.

These days, when I'm looking for a forum if I see 'pagan' I just keep looking. I doubt I'm the only one.

I like Michael's most recent version.

I like Michael's too and agree it would be wise not to pick out pagan or any other specific belief systems that will end up limiting the appeal to a particular group or groups.

Yes, Michael's is good. I like that one. :icon_e_smile:

Reading isn't intrinsically religious or spiritual anyway. It can be, but so can anything else. If you contemplate spiritual things or chant mantras when you mop, mopping is spiritual. If you pick up the cards and do a quick throw to see if your parcel will arrive on time, that's mundane, day-to-day stuff.

Well the important thing is that we make a list of what we want the description to be so a poll can be put up and have ppl vote. I removed pagan. And it is in the list thread ALL BY ITSELF nudge nudge wink wink.
