    Well I don't really give a hoot about rep points but is there any way we can get an ETA next time the site goes down? That way I won't end up pouring my frustration into Haiku:

    Althing I miss you
    Like the heavens miss the rain.
    Please come back real soon.

    Closed for maintenance?
    What the crap is with this crap

    Went to sleep last night
    Thought I'd see you in the morn...
    Yet still here I wait

    I had about 275-280 reputation points from TheAlthing, and approximately 200 from Skadi. This leaves me with roughly 475-480.

    BTW, is my profile picture okay? I'm trying to be respectful of staff sensitivities regarding 'forum appropriateness'.

    Wow! I wanted to visit TheAlthing forums and was surprised to see Skadi back up.

    Did all my pretty pictures I put into the image gallery disappear?

    Makes me feel like not putting anymore up if they can be so easily done away with.

    Keep Skadi Alive and Growing: Skadi Funding Membership!

    We are currently revamping the page and will have to update the info though.

    Everyone who donated for the Althing (at any time) should have a funding member status on Skadi as well.

    If there is anyone else who donated and they are not listed as funding members, please send us an email via the contact form.

    You will be able to when you become a regular member.

    When do I become a Regular?

    Skadi was closed because its owners and admins lacked the time/resources to continue sustaining it. I started the Althing because there was no other Germanic forum around and because as a smaller forum, I could afford sustaining it. Now we found a new owner for Skadi. So, we decided to merge the Althing into Skadi because there is no sense in keeping two Germanic forums with the same orientation online at the same time.

    The system has retained some old data, so there are members who have retained their custom avatars from the Althing but are not yet Regulars, is this what you mean?

    Could someone explain what are the challenges/arcade games?
    The arcade is a hall of games which Funding Members can play. I am not sure if challenges still work, but if they do, one can challenge another user to compete against one. One plays the game and one's score is recorded. The user receives an email and if he accepts, he makes his game and the score is recorded Then an email is sent to both, establishing who the winner was.

    I also am having trouble viewing profiles as well as with loading the forum.
    What kind of trouble exactly?

    Can I choose a custom usertitle?

    No. Skadi used to be an all-European forum in the beginning, but it changed its orientation to Germanic preservation in late 2004. The Althing, as its successor, continued along the same (Germanic) lines. We like the Germanic orientation and we think it fits us best, so we will keep it.

    And may i ask who the new owner is then? someone we know from the althing or...
    Forseti.

    Not when it's supposed to be a surprise.

    Sorry, I tried importing the gallery but it didn't work out. It is a modification, not a standard vbulletin option. I have all the files though, in case anyone is interested in anything in particular. We have a gallery here too, but yes, we have to start from scratch.

    Great! But just to clarify, Skadi hasn't been existing alongside the Althing has it? I mean, Skadi has only just returned right... and rather than start Skadi up again whilst the Althing is running, you decided to revert the Althing back to Skadi!?

    Hmm, I had 853 reputation points if I can recall. I was wondering what had happened to the Althing.
