what about a sub-forum for Alpinid users?

There are a lot of Alpinid Germanics here, and there are cultural sub-forums, so why not subrace subforums?

An Alpinist does not necessarily have to be a supremacist. Not all Nordicsists here are supremacists.

Nordic theory (or Nordicism) was a theory of racial supremacy prevalent in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century, which claimed that North European peoples constitute a “master race” because of their supposed innate racial capacity for leadership. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nordicism)

Could we have a special subforum for dinaricized nordomediterranids with pontid admixture and slight UP influences? :D

A Sub-forum in "Europoid" for the Cromagnid/Upper Paleolithic types.

A Sub-forum in "Europoid" for the Cromagnid/Upper Paleolithic types.

I think that is a great idea. How about Bruenn, Borreby, Ladagon/Others?? What do others think?

Good idea. I would suggest to make up a "Cromagnoid" subforum, which would include Dalofaelid (Bruenn), Borreby (Nordalpinoid), Eastcromagnoid-Westbaltid, Palaeatlantid, Berberid, Berid just to mention the more important types and subtypes.


Ladagon

"Ladogans" (~Lappoid) being already covered by Uralid me thinks and we shouldnt deal with the derivates of Cromagnoids which being already in a different major category (Alpinisation - Alpinoid, Baltisation - Baltid) if the topic is not being related to a still Cromagnoid forms in this new subforum.

I would like to see comments from the administrators, or members who have the privileges to edit the forums. I see no reason to not have a Cromagnoid sub-forum.

Added. Moderators please be so kind to move/split threads relevant to this sub-forum whenever you surf into them.

I can't help but notice the new forum is called "Cromagnoid" - shouldn't it be "Cromagnid" so as to be in keeping with the other subforum titles?

/end nitpicking. :P

Thanks. Cromagnid seems to be more popular on Google, too.

Could be argued, though my idea was to include all types which are still RATHER unreduced and SIMILAR, whereas -id would exclude f.e. Borreby and Westbaltid or Berid, the former two because of their brachycephalisation and partial pyknomorphisation, the later because of the whole reduction. Cromagnid =~ eurydolichomorph and robust Europids which resemble the findings of Palaeolithic and Mesolithic related forms, so Dalofaelid, Palaeatlantid, Berberid primarily.

What about having two for the Eastern Caucasoid types
Example:
Orientalid(Arabid and Iranid etc)
Indid(North-Indid, Indobranchid etc.)

Very interesting idea... But one can hardly consider Arabids as Europeads... Maybe some Iranids and Indids\NordIndids could have their branch, but not Arabs... OBVIOUSLY... Cause next step after Arabs would be Jews... :thumbdown

The Arabs are a Europoid people, what the hell else would they be?. And this is just a suggestion for the physical anthropology section. And if this would be added, all Europid subgroups would be listed there.

Im against that. This is a Germanic online community.

How are they a European people? Morphologically, some Arabs (i.e. Iranians) can approach Europeans, but their pigmentation and behaviour suggests otherwise. They are a Caucasian people, just like Europeans, but you're likely to offend Germanics (and probably Arabs too) by putting them in the Europid section.


Orientalid(Arabid and Iranid etc)
Indid(North-Indid, Indobranchid etc.)

Even the names of the racial types you named should give it away. They are racial types which belong in Arabia and India respectively, but not Europe. They have no place in Europe, no amount of multi-cultural propaganda by Western governments is going to change that.

Anyone can post here, germanic or not, (i'm not of germanic ancestry) but the focus of Skadi is to create a Germanic Online Community not a "European" or "Europoid" community.
In the past i've even seen Japanese posting here and as long as they are civilised and friendly they are tolerated and respected; that's all you can hope for in a forum.
Also, there is Dodona and many other forums which aren't ethnic-specific.

Not being of germanic origns, as portuguese, I do not see what would improve in this forum with an arab or even a iranian section, not only because they are not europeans (iranians are related to us but are not europeans) but also due to the fact that such people would offer nothing of interest for the preservation of germanic and european ethnoculture.:thumbdown
BTW, if you enjoy that ethnical mixture you have the so called PANF forum.:P

Well, my knowledge of physical anthropology is quite limited to say the least, but as far as I know, European and Europid respectively are not quite the same thing. The word 'European' bears what one may term a cultural significance, while Europid is a physical-anthropological term, largely equivalent to caucasian/caucasoid. In this sence Arabs f.e. could rightly be termed Europid, but most definitively not European.

But I do agree with you that there is not much sence in accentuating the likeness between Arabs and Europeans, even if confined to the strictly racial field, by using terms such as 'Europid' when 'Caucasoid' should do just fine, while also avoiding a certain confusion of ideas.

We have physical anthropology sub-forums for all human sub-species.

We further have second level sub-forums for the primary local forms or sub-types (sub-races) of the European (Europoid proper) sub-species because those types are all to one extent or the other represented by indigenous Germanics to a non-marginal degree (with the exception of Uralid maybe but this sub-forum exists due to reasons buried in the history of Skadi).

They are thus, in general, of particular interest to us what is also reflected by an increased post count that justifies further differentiation.

This is simply not the case with non-European sub-types, be they Mongoloid, Congoid or Caucasoid (Europoid in a wider sense); including Uralid; you can go and see for yourself how much was posted there. Thus, I see no need to add specific second level sub-forums for Orientalids and Indids. If somebody has some interesting information about those types, he can as well post them in the Europoid forum.

Exactly my words, Thorburn. By the way, I also wouldn't be opposed to renaming the sub-specifical forum titles Europoid, Congoid, Mongoloid, Australoid, Capoid as Europid, Negrid, Indianid, Australid, Khoisanid, due to nomenclatorical uniformity with the "Europoid" subforums. The name "Capoid" makes me always think of Martin Schulz, member of the European Parliament, anyway. :P
