What is the Real Magick and Occult Forum?
The Real Magick and Occult Forum is a Free online forum stored on Yahoo servers for practitioners of all styles of Magick. Members are able to post messages, upload self-pictures and other pictures relevent to the forum, post helpful links in our links page (please no spamming), and chat in our free chat room with other members. The primary language used at this forum is English.
Who is allowed to join?
EVERYONE! Everyone who is a practitioner of magick and the occult arts, that is. Beginners with serious questions are also welcome. Obtaining a Yahoo I.D. so that you may participate in all Yahoo forums such as this one is completely free, fast, and easy to do.
The types of practitioners typically found at our forum are Ceremonial (Golden Dawn and related), Enochian, Shamanic, and Chaos magickians. There are probably more than can be listed since each person is too unique to catagorize.
Left-hand path and Christian practitioners alike are extremely rare at this forum though not unwelcome so long as they can maintain acceptable behavior and a tolerant attitude toward other members. The vast majority of our current members are either pagan or non-religious.
This is NOT a forum for role-playing games.
What are acceptable topics for discussion in this Forum?
Anything pertaining to Magick, the Occult arts, States of Consciousness, etc. It can be serious or humorous. More often than not the topics are of a more serious nature, but we're all pretty open-minded. Topics in the past have even included discussions of controversial subjects such as entheogens and psychedelics in magick and the nature of evil, so pretty much everything is open game.
What types of Behavior are Acceptable?
The type of behavior that is encouraged at this forum is an attitude of tolerance and respect toward other members. We try to address and attack the ISSUE being discussed, NOT an individual personally if at all possible. Obviously with so many different types of people in the world it's unlikely that everyone will get along or agree, but by maintaining a respectful and open-minded attitude, we'll all at least have a chance to understand the other person's point of view and be tolerant of it even though we may never agree with it.
The use of profanity is never a problem here and all words are accepted. This isn't a childrens' forum.
What types of Behavior are Unacceptable?
Intentionally insulting or verbally abusing other members in an unprovoked manner is unacceptable. Also, if you have a bad case of Magusitis we'd all appreciate it if you'd NOT join since you'll only be deleted in a short time. Egocentric power-hungry and/or status-seeking jerks are NOT welcome here and will be deleted. (If you think you're the smartest, best, and most powerful magickian since Aleister Crowley then you've got the delusional ego disorder known in occult circles as Magusitis.) Such individuals ruin the atmosphere for everyone, drive members away, and therefore will not be tolerated.
Joining for the sole purpose of spamming your website link and then leaving again is NOT acceptable and is extremely poor internet etiquette. Any inconsiderate spamming activity such as that may result in termination of your membership to this forum. At the very least your spammed post will certainly be deleted.
Something else that may prove unacceptable is the intentional use of overly intellectual and wordy language (ala 19th c. medical textbook style) with the intention of making oneself out to be intellectually superior to anyone who is incapable of understanding his/her writing. Most members have found this rather boring to read as well as incredibly insulting - especially when the motive is clearly toward belittling other members in an effort to enhance one's own ego. (Such behavior would also fall into the catagory of Magusitis.)
Discrimination based on race, religion, sex, and sexual orientation is completely UNACCEPTABLE.
With the above information in mind, I invite all serious practitioners of Magick and the Occult Arts to join us and freely discuss your theories, methods, practices, and anything else you'd like to discuss on the topic in our positive and open environment. Knowledge of the Arts cannot advance unless we're willing to interact with each other in a place we can call common or neutral ground. It is my hope as founder and organizer of this forum that you will find such an environment condusive to learning and personal growth here. I've learned much about other practitioners of magick and myself from participating in this group during this past year. I've also met a few very good friends.
