Should there ever be a position open for a coven, I have an idea for what kind of coven can be made. A sort of teaching coven for those looking to learn from others as well as normal research. It could be an interesting idea, and could help newer members here grasp the basics a little more sooner. However there are only 2 primary problems. First, there would have to be people willing to teach who know what they are talking about, and would have to be willing to spend some time, not to mention be very patient. Secondly, there'd have to be a method for teaching individual people certain things they'd be struggling with. I still think it would be an interesting idea. Let me know your thoughts on this.
That's actually how many covens on here work. The issue is how far one can teach and how willing someone is to participate. I have run Divine Essence for many years and have been council of a few other covens on the site and from what I've seen most people join a coven to brag they're in it. [Like a badge for their profile] yes, we are all busy and many people can only devote a few hours a week to online covens, but sadly most people don't want to put in the effort, instead they want someone to hand them the answer.
I've been in covens who have monthly meetings, weekly check ins, questions in the forums, study groups, and regular meetings in the coven chat. Good in theory but in practice there's time zones, time restrictions, and a user's interest in any given topic to consider. You could try running your own study group through mail and site forums but it requires a lot of time and energy.
To Neko, what I meant is a coven meant for fundamentals, say for instance, the basics of how spells work, what can they do, what can they not do, what is the astral, what is astral projection, what is the difference between spiritual paths, etc. It would be helpful for younger members or those struggling to grasp the concepts.
