Welcome To Occult Knowledge
Hello and welcome to Occult Knowledge. (Website/Forum Is Best Viewed In Google Chrome OR Fire Fox) I made this forum to help other's gain knowledge into the many topics of the occult. How ? You may ask. By offering free on line books on the subject's. As well as offering on line courses once we get more members and teachers who are willing to help teach when they can. Being an open forum, This also allows anyone to make post's and discussions when they need help regarding the subject's they are currently trying to understand. I also hope to eventually add a theatre here where members can watch documentaries and movie's related to the subjects as well. I am open to all idea's so if any members have any idea's to improve the site or make it a better place I am all ears.
Classes / On line Course's
As for classes you maybe wondering how we will start classes once we get teacher's/members. Once teacher's fill out the application process. The teacher and I/Moderator at the time will work with them to design their board to there liking. If a teacher is teaching a divination method such as "Tarot" there board will be placed under the divination forum. Just as if one teacher is teaching magick, There board will be placed under the magick forum.
Once there board is created teachers will make there own forum rules in there board. Teacher's are given there own boards for helping the students,sharing notes,making announcements ext. They will also be able to pick a background image instead of the dark starry one everyone see's now. They will also be access and control of the website chat room, to hold there classes in. (As of now we are using a shout out box chat in time when more members join this will change). They will also be able to set dates on the website calendar as well as time's with the website clock so students know what day/time classes start. teacher's must put any free books they want there students to read in the library though. This is so all people have access to free knowledge.
( There are two types of "ranks" on Occult Knowledge. One is know as the "Posting Rank". The other website rank is based on your experience and knowledge about the many topics of the occult. Information will be posted below about these two ranks. )
