Yea my apologies to the one that made the crack on the Priest being male, but I am male. Not really sure how a masculine title fits on a female but whatever floats your tushie.
As Zea has stated this is a more permanent solution to the ongoing issues within the Coven. The thought was to get things going right again then have Tempus slide back in, but apparently he loved the Coven so much that he wiped. I guess I might as well start hanging up pictures on the walls.
But on a better note, yes Neorsa and I have talked for hours on end, and have decided that the best thing for Deep Arts is to put it back together somewhat as it was before all this...swapping of people. Which I apologize for as my original plan was to leave the site permanently. In making those plans I had not realized that the Coven would become such a mess and make so many unhappy. So I apologize and I am here as long as I am needed or wanted.
That brings us to new beginnings, half of the rule list you have seen in previous posts is gone. Use common sense and follow the rules of the site. Its simple, respect, be active, no plagiarism, no role play, and have fun. Though one thing that will toss us in a different category is that we ask that you are not only active within the Coven but also the site. Whether it is helping people in the site chatter or it's forums. Everyone is good at at least one thing or area, even beginners. So all we ask is for people to give back to the site that gave to you.
What do we share, teach and study? Good question, and better answered with what do you study? Deep Arts is similar to COK and other Covens in that we try to be as diverse as our members would like to be or need. If we do not cover something that holds your interest just let us know. We will darn near bend over backwards getting the information you want or need.
Classes are not currently on the agenda, but we do offer open discussions. Which many have found to be much more appeasing as you get to gain information as well as share your own thoughts. Though I believe we will start scheduling some of these discussions to take place in the Coven Chat at scheduled times.
Everyone is welcomed to join, including beginners. There is a short questionaire on our Coven page, this is not to judge if you fit in as it gives us an idea of what you practice and what you'd like to learn. The more we know about each member then the better we can serve the entire group. Keeping in mind we are a very diverse group, with all coming from many paths and traditions.
The Coven itself is ran by a culmination of factors and people. This is in no way a dictatorship, the P/P do not hold their word as law. We are in place to ensure the Coven remains a safe haven for those who choose to reside there. We try to keep the peace and order within the Coven, help guide members along their paths, and make sure the members are getting what they need. We are here to serve the members, without them our positions would not exist.
The Council is in place to help keep the Coven forum, spell book, and ritual book straight. Aide members with any issues they may have and also help guide them in the right direction. Together the P/P and Council work as a team to provide the members with what they need, and as far as our abilities can what they want.
The ultimate idea is to have and run a Coven with the family oriented atmosphere that Deep Arts once held. One based on unconditional love, understanding, open mindedness, and respect for one another as equals. Family whether by blood or by common interest alone is undeniably one of the greatest learning environments possible. An openness to share, teach, learn and grow together.
So if this sounds like the place for you, just let us know. P/P and Council are online daily.
