    Aeternitas was so generous to hear my pleas to help us out whenever she has time, and she has been reinstated in her old position as a Lögsögumaður.

    Welcome back, Aeternitas!
    The answer to 1984 is 1776.

    Thank you, Forseti.

    Edit: I see there are some others...but not all of the ones we did have I think. And the biggest thing is I don't know how to get them to randomize from banner to banner.

    I'm a big fan of the banners.
    "Germanic Online Community" was Thorburn's modification of our logo, which we shall keep on Skadi. Unfortunately, I don't have the .psds of most of those old banners anymore, as my PC was severely virused and I had to format and reinstall everything. I think the new ones we have, which were created by a German graphic designer, are much nicer anyway, and they match with our styles. We will probably add a random script sometime in future though.

    I took it down because it was incompatible with PHP 5. i.e. it rendered threads unreadable. I'll try to see if I can find a new version.

    I'll have to ask the members to please have some patience and understanding regarding technical development, as both Forseti and myself are busy atm and we only log on a few times/week.

    I like Skadi better than the Althing as far as content and discussion is concerned, it's more active and lively, but I preferred the name Althing too. The name "Althing" had a folkish, community sound to it, while the name "Skadi" puts a bias on a single deity from the Germanic pantheon. Just my two cents.

    The legend has it that Scandinavia was named after Skadi. As such, I'd say that this giantess, also a goddess of the hunt and winter, is about as Germanic as it gets, IMO ... though I must say that "The Althing" was a name I cherished much too as - in reference to how the Althing first practiced its way in olden days is much indeed in the "folkish community feeling" that I'd say we try to capture, especially in the spirits of the old Germanic values that the ancient Althing (though of course not in its current position as the parliament of Iceland ) represented. But overall - despite taking your point and wholeheartedly agreeing with it ... I still prefer the name Skadi Forum, and in hindsight, I probably feel more at home now that Skadi Forum has returned than on The Althing - even though I felt very much at home at The Althing --- just because it is the original, upon which I stumbled as a young, uninformed 16-year old more than three years back.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)
