CANCELLATION OF EVENTS
It is with the greatest regret
that I have decided NOT to publish Events lisings. If the
events listing page is to reappear it will be entirely up
to the contributors and organisers of events to ensure that
listings are submitted on time, not after the event and prior
to deadline (refer
It saddens me, but this decision
was made because of the total lack of consideration of organisers,
lack of participation and lateness of submissions. These listings
were offered and given FREELY at no expense to the organisers
of events and contributors and showed a total discourtesy
to me when recieved mostly late.
Of those who submitted regularly,
only Jenwich and Frances ensured that their listings where
sent to me in advance. Others decided to send me listings
either after deadline or as close to the deadline as could
be. The Cosmic Cauldron Newsletter intitially began as a hobby
and a service to the community. I don't get paid to produce
this Newsletter and the little "pocket money" I
do get through the publishing of banner advertising is spent
to enhance the publication i.e.: domain purchae.
I am NO ones patsy or bunny
and the publication is a passionate hobby contructed to serve
and assist the comminty.
I had one waug write me a
letter saying: "Who needs your events listings anyway.
We can promote our events for free through our MSN forums
and Yahoo groups."
Well ... in case readers haven't
heard the News, MSN have decided to CLOSE all their MSN groups
as they found them to be financially unfesible and cesspits
of illegal and discriminating behaviour and actives such as
plagiarism, copyright infringement, stalking and cyber bullying.
There is also, a very strong
rumour circulating that Yahoo may also be pulling the plug
on the Yahoo groups/ forums.
The Cosmic Cauldron Newsletter,
if approached, may consider having a future events page, however
henceforth, any listings that appear will be FREE for non-profit
organisations ONLY and/ or contributors of Articles, Artwork
and Poetry. The events listing will then appear attached to
the submitted contribution page, at that bottom of the page.
All major events held by other
organisations, associations, covens, temples, groups etc.,
which are NOT non-proft and which are charging for attendance
to their events and if they wish to promote events in the
Cosmic Cauldron newsletter will be charge a basic cost of
advertising/ promotion for the event at a rate of 10 % of
the initial attendance price i.e. If you are the organisers
of an event and you are charging $159.00 per person for and
event then, for me to promote your event in my Newsletter
you will have to pay me a one off fee of $15.00
This does not apply to organisations
who run events and charge a gold coin donation.
I make NO apologies for my
