Science and warfare can exist side by side with coziness, just like they do in real life. The ultimate goal of online information gathering is, or should be, to inform action within our specific bonds of kinship and friendship. There we will find men and women with a range of specific talents and interests and we should focus on mobilising and perfecting whatever they bring to the table rather than admonishing them for failing to be someone else entirely.
In the same way, Skadi Forum has traditionally had specific strengths and might develop other strengths in the future and we should accept them as given. One of these strengths has been to draw the interest of women who might otherwise have been lost to Christianity, Social Justice or Satanism, and provide a community for them. The other strength has always been its excellent Anthropology section without which I would never have become the awful person I am today. There is no need to turn Skadi Forum into any of the hundreds of other forums that exist already or perished in the past and we are systematically unable to do it anyway if there are no contributors to make it happen. For better or for worse, we are stuck with who we are and we need to make the best of it.
There is a valid criticism that Skadi Forum ultimately fails to develop male power. But the sources of male power have always been hard work, craftsmanship, physical excellence, combat ability and ultimately male bonding under the aegis of leadership and kingship. All of this is hard to replicate online and it seems that most of us would be better off crawling our family trees for more cousins to recruit into that sort of project.

if that is true it is certainly manifested in the do nothing attitude seen in Europe today concerning the immigration disaster.

I think the foreign anthropology forums are a good earning source for people who take interest in the comparative science of races and subraces. It's a trove of scientific information which can be used as a source to counteract modern day type of science which is politically correct and denies the existence of race. It's actually contradictory, on the one hand we are told there's no such thing as race, and on the other hand we've to believe and counteract racism. Anyway, for this purpose, it's good we have forums for every race and subrace, so we can learn the characteristics of each and bring such arguments in discussions about the science of race.
In which concerns the immigration issue, I think it's stretching it a little bit by saying Europeans are doing nothing. Actually Europe is experiencing a transformation and people tend more and more towards populism. But you've to understand that due to a strong politically correct climate in Europe (laws that punish even speech, we've no 1st Amendment here for example), a unanimous reaction takes time to form and come. There are numerous examples of isolated incidents and I've my doubts sincerely because some are more negative than positive so don't really help the situation. But on a mass level, we now see a turn to the populist movements and there more and more people demonstrating over political matters. I've seen it happen in my country, people taking the streets because their rights and freedoms felt infringed. After this kind of pressure, the socialists in power resigned, for fear of the people's wrath. So it can happen. But honestly, we need more than street manifestations. Because what happens after the resignation? We need politicians, intellectuals, scientists, leaders who can make a difference and get us out of this mess. The refugee topic is a hot topic in Europe and in my opinion this time the politically correct agenda will no longer have the same effects it once used to. People are seeing with their own eyes, and because of the sheer numbers, incidents and policies towards refugees, they no longer shut up and ignore comfortably. Just an example the policy to give them funds, someone said every immigrant should get some thousands euros, well our peoples get an average salary of less than 500 euros, this policy infuriates the average people. So changes are happening, but gradually, in little steps. Another thing is populist parties are gathering record results in elections. Not yet winning results, but in a few years time they will.
I'm not sure what kind of male power is expected to be seen on a discussion forum. Traditionally males would prefer male topics like warfare, crafts, physical matters like training, workout, but there's only so much that can be discussed about it. Some of these things are more action than talking so it's natural on forums we get more discussions about "talk topics" like politics, current affairs, arts or economy.

Thanks for the suggestions. There are some valid points expressed in this thread, that said we chose to leave the classification system as it is. First off, it's the most scientifically correct system. We did consider the suggestion to separate forums between Europid and non-Europid, however, non-Europid isn't really a race and Americanoid, Australoid, Congoid, etc. sub-races to it like Nordid, Alpinid or Atlantid are to Europid. Rather they are each a race of its own, e.g. the Mongoloid race is divided into Tungid, Sinid, Sibirid etc. sub-races. Now we haven't created sub-forums for their sub-races as they are not as widely discussed as the Europid ones but one can find these details if one browses the forums. So from this point of view we do put an emphasis on detail in which regards the Europid race.
Second, it has been noted that these forums aren't very active at the time and serve more of an informational/library purpose. Considering this is true and considering the focus of discussion remains on Germanic topics, having such forums around doesn't do much harm. They serve an informational purpose and present a scientific approach to the concept of race. There are plenty of anthropology forums out there, true, but the original, traditional place one browsed to learn about such topics remains Skadi.
Should there be an overwhelming interest or frequent, preferential posting regarding non-European and non-Germanic topics, our staff are capable and prepared to filter the content and explain the purpose of this forum to those who don't/miss-understand it. Actually here the multitude of anthropology and human biodiversity forums out there comes in handy, so it's not as though we risk to get flooded with non- or anti-Germanics who come here just to get classified or such. Skadi remains a forum primarily for and about Germanics, with the occasional off-topic discussions.
