Pagan.World has begun transforming the site, stay tuned for developments.

Pagan.World is for our community to speak as they will, what they will, when they will, where they will.

Dear friends, members, and alumni:

As we discuss the changeover to becoming a 501c3 status, a lot of focus has been that the Witch School site itself, is a drab and antiquated. That over the years while providing a solid education which did not completely keep up with modern graphics and delivery systems. This is why we have decided to become a 501c3, in order to begin the next upgrade and improvement cycle. In order to meet the changes we need to have a structure that is responsive to the Pagan community and not based on mainstream idea of how things should work. We have to do what we do best, and that is provide services to what Wiccans really need.

As a commercial site, Michael Ferrell has done a amazing job maintaining and building the site up, but it has been a singular job. Without advertising dollars (Pagans Hate Advertising) and a lack of desire or mission to create truly expensive classes, we began to see ourselves focus on the core functions, our powerful proprietary Social education engine. This is and continues to be priority 1. In many cases, because we were commercial, we had no access to volunteers or other forms of programmers that we could afford. Buying off the shelf solutions could costs tens of thousands of dollars. Simply put we were surviving, even thriving, but are ability to change and improve was deeply curtailed.

With the 501c3 status we now can accept volunteer help at every level, including web, programming, and graphics. We can also get reduced cost packages to help our programmers. This is important, as memberships will still be the bulk of income, but now assistance can be obtained at reduced costs and even free. If you are yourself interested in helping, contact Charlynn@witchschool.com and Sherry@WitchSchool.com and they will discuss how to help. If you ever thought about it, the time is now.

Now, more than ever, Witch School is needed in the world. We can effect change that is helpful, build up traditions, give a powerful education, and discover new ways to reach out and communicate. This has been the WSI strength, the ability to make boundaries and borders vanish, being global, and continues to be here every day. With the move to Correllian Education Ministries, that ability is enhanced and improved. Now is the best opportunity to create a truly lasting legacy.

Lifetime Memberships have always been crucial to that effort, and are only $49.99 until 11:59 pm, September 30th. Here is the link: http://bit.ly/wslifetime50

Thank You and Blessings

I hope you meant expansive classes where you wrote expensive classes. I usually avoid being the grammar police but the difference between these 2 terms is pretty big and being an educational organization, we need to be careful with spelling and grammar, and edit our work to be sure we say what we actually mean, instead of accidentally saying something quite contrary to what we mean and unnecessarily creating hostility.

I am a web developer, programmer and server administrator for a web hosting company. (I'm not advertising anything, though). I would be glad to help out when possible. I think we can all work together to accomplish your goals. Let me know if I can help. I did mention my skills and offer to help to Rev. Sherry in email recently, so she has my email. I really would love to see WitchSchool continue to be the best Pagan and Witchcraft learning center available.

BTW, just to be clear, any help I give would be separate from my normal job, and I consider it as a hobby/volunteer endeavor as a lifetime member of WitchSchool.
