Skadi Forum FAQ

Here you can find answers to questions about how the board works. Use the links or search box below to find your way around.

01 (a). Germanic Heritage

This is a board for people of Germanic heritage. Views, ideas, and contributions that are hostile to Germanics or their heritage are not permitted.

01 (b). Germanic Preservation

The account of Members that are judged to be, even if only partly ethnically non-Germanic, may be unappealably terminated if their contributions, either individually or in combination with the contributions of other such members, either by force of their numbers or their impact, are increasingly considered a risk to the integrity of or a burden to Skadi Forum, its Mission Statement, or its Germanic community.

02. Illegal Activity

02. There must be no instigation to, condonation of, approval of, planning of, or suggestions to illegal activity at the board of any sort. Illegal is considered whatever is illegal under the municipal, state, and federal jurisdictions of this server, as well as what is illegal under International Law. This includes in particular, but is not limited to, slander, libel, illegal defamation, and illegal threats against identifiable persons or groups; and instigation to, condonation of, approval of, planning of, or suggestions to genocide or other criminal measures, whether in the past, present, or future.

03. Ad hominems

Ad hominems, insults, mockery, vilification, ridicule, and the exhibition of any other objectively offensive conduct against Members, even if only in retaliation, are not permitted.

04. Vulgarity

Vulgarity, bawdiness, drunkenness, lewdness, obscenity, profanity, curses, discourteous and ungentlemanly conduct towards female Members, disrespectful conduct towards elder Members, and other objectively unrefined conduct, even if only in retaliation, is not permitted.

05. Ad gentems

Ad gentems, racial slurs, and aspersions against any identifiable group, even if only in retaliation, are not permitted.

06. Incitement

We allow fair and benevolent criticism of all races; subraces; ethnicities; peoples; religious, cultural and social communities; as well as of ideologies; philosophies; or any other ideas; as well as of persons and Members; attitudes; and conduct, if presented in a civil and non-insulting manner. Your attitude and presentation shall determine whether you will face disciplinary procedures.

07. Posting of Personal Information

The posting of images, videos, audio recordings, or any other information of Members, Ex-Members, or, potentially, of other private persons, without their consent, that makes them identifiable as real persons, even if previously publicly shared, is not permitted. The revelation of personal and private information of Members and Ex-Members, or, potentially, of other private persons, that can breach their security and safety, even if such information has previously been publicly shared, is not permitted. Posting links or other access data to such information is equally not permitted.

08. Defamation against Skadi

Defamation and insults directed against skadi.net, Skadi Forum, their Staff, or their respective decisions, are not permitted.

The publication of copyrighted information exceeding the fair use clause is not permitted.

10. Nudity and Pornography

Pornographic depictions and depictions of nudity are not permitted.

11. Non-English Language

The general board language is English. Communications in languages other than English are only permitted in the appropriate language sections.

12. Lowbrow

Posts without a serious message and without information value for third parties are not permitted anywhere but in Lowbrow sections.

13. Off-topic

Posts that are off-topic are not permitted anywhere but in Lowbrow sections. Posts are off-topic if they leave the wider category into which the topic belongs.

14. Trolling

Trolling is not permitted. Trolling is the posting of absurd statements with the intent to provoke reactions. Statements are absurd if they can be empirically refuted beyond reasonable doubt or are logically ridiculously incongruous, in particular if not even a serious attempt, both by evidence and logic, to prove their validity is offered. It shall be presumed you have the intent to provoke reactions if posting of such absurd statements manifests itself as persistent or continual, especially if they recur in related topics.

15. Retardism

Retardism is not permitted. Retardism is contributing little to nothing of value and posting persistently or continually, as far as content, grammar, or spelling is concerned, beneath an intellectual niveau that can be fairly expected from a gifted Germanic teenager that has been exposed to a classical education.

16. Political Acronyms

The use of political acronyms, political set phrases, and political greetings is not permitted for other than reference purposes.

17. Formatting

The abuse of block letters, fonts, colors, other text attributes, and smilies is not permitted. Abuse is constituted by using them for other purposes than occasional accentuation.

18. Signature

Signatures must be pleasing to the aesthetic standards of the eye, and must be compliant with all other rules. Political symbols, political devotionalia, signatures that express an ideological leaning, as well as cruel, sexual, offensive, provocative, highly controversial or plainly disgusting motives are not permitted. You are permitted to use one graphical signature image. Staff has the right to edit or remove any signature as part of its editorial discretion.

19. Avatar

Avatars must be pleasing to the aesthetic standards of the eye, and must be compliant with all other rules. Political symbols, political devotionalia, avatars that express an ideological leaning, as well as cruel, sexual, offensive, provocative, highly controversial or plainly disgusting motives are not permitted. Staff has the right to edit or remove any avatar as part of its editorial discretion.

20. Profile Picture

20. Profile pictures must be pleasing to the aesthetic standards of the eye, and must be compliant with all other rules.

Staff has the right to edit or remove any profile picture as part of its editorial discretion.

21 (b). Forum Defamation

If you just got banned from another forum or don't like its orientation or Staff, then Skadi is not the right place to vent about it. If you are a Skadi Regular, have a good record on Skadi, and think the decision has been unfair, contact Staff, and we might be able to help you by mediation.

21 (a). Forum Defamation

Skadi Forum maintains friendly relations with many other forums and websites. Defamation and insults directed against these sites, boards, their decisions, their owners, and, potentially, their Staff, are not permitted, and will be removed per gentlemen's agreement.
