    Hello, Folks!

    Hello,

    I wanted to introduce myself briefly. I'm from California, born in L.A. but now living in a smaller town in Orange County. I'm *very* happily married, am in my thir... pffft, early forties I fear (but don't tell nobody) and have a lovely wife and three angelic but stubborn daughters, aged 8, 11 and 13. Means I'm living between hell and paradise, depending on the day. Their stubbornness proves my fatherhood by the way.

    My wife is eager to find out the details why I was hiding in my room most of the time over the weekend and I hope she will sign up, too. Professionally, I work for a well-known telecommunications company in the region.

    Politically, I'm a registered Republican and always voted for Republican candidates, but America has become a mess and the Republican party has been almost completely taken over by neo-conservatives. "New World Order" capitalists opposing the mere existence of the United States. Morons who never read the constitution. Sometimes I doubt they can read at all, and it makes me angry. Liberals. Even Socialists. You find almost everything there but traditional Republicans (men like Ron Paul). I should move to Texas. Anyway, that's why I have stopped voting and to support them, but Duke and these people from Stormfront will lead us nowhere either. I'm not a Klansman or a Nazi. I'm just a traditional, indigenous (yes, indigenous!) American who can trace his ancestors back to the early 1700's. I'm a family man who believes in responsibility, freedom, the dominance of Germanic culture in our own Germanic countries and our Constitution. I'm like most indigenous Americans who ain't represented by nobody any longer.

    To make a long story short, I had a longer chat with Thorburn and Aeternitas, and the merge of Skadi and the Althing is the result. I'm very happy that I could help to bring Skadi back (I once, around 2004, signed up under my real name but never posted) and to preserve The Althing at the same time (which was one step ahead of being closed due to lack of resources).

    You don't have to fear that I just came from nowhere and will start to boss you around. On the contrary, please just carry on the way you always did. Use your own judgment and do the best for our community. If you have problems, please go to the staff, as you used to do. My work keeps me fairly busy and I love my family and am not willing to compromise on the time I spend with it. Aaaand... I love my couch more than the Internet; but I'll do what I can to keep this board running and will try to visit regularly. After all, there are laptops nowadays which permit me to combine my beloved couch with the Internet.

    So that's me... tell me a bit about you, will you? I feel a bit being pushed into the midst of a group of people without faces.

    Welcome here, Forseti and it's nice to meet you. I can imagine it must feel strange not knowing all these people. However trust me that I say from my own experience that the Althing (now Skadi) people are very welcoming and friendly. I already felt at home days after I registered me there. Now I want to thank you for offering your sustaining.

    Hello there Forseti.

    Thanks for the resurgence of Skadi. I never had the chance to fully appreciate the Skadi at first. I was too busy with the preparation of my second child's arrival. I was very aggrieved to lose a few threads about the Celts which I had found interesting. The only thing annoying now is locating them again.

    As for putting a face to my name; I am from Somerset, England, and love all things to do with my heritage and cultural history.

    Unfortunately I do not have access to my couch for most of the time as it is usually full of kids and cats. The couch is overrated anyway. Much prefer the pub.

    If it wasn't an American it would have only been a Chinese businessman or a Russian oligarch.

    Thank you for the warm welcome.

    I believe this Introductions forum will be a very valuable resource to learn something about the members. I already surfed through it two or three hours yesterday.

    Anyway, I made up my mind to observe over the next months how things are working here. At the moment, all the options are a bit confusing to me, and it seems I have a lot to learn.

    I think I have to correct something here. I would not call myself the forum's owner, but more its "custodian" or "godfather." I contributed absolutely nothing to Skadi or The Althing, and at least Skadi's owner Thorburn made it clear that he reserves himself all rights to Skadi Forum's content and database as licensed if the forum should ever be closed or disconnected from the Internet again. I don't know about Aeternitas or if the forums could ever be separated again.

    I'm providing the server — a Dual Intel Core 2 Quad (8 virtual CPUs) with 8 GB RAM and SCSI — which should last us for some time. And I am the current "Þeudanaz", i.e. something like the forum's "top admin" (the Witenagemots and the Lögsöguma∂ur are admins, too) which in combination makes me probably currently legally reponsible for the forum, its content and its information. This gives us much more security due to America's strong protection of free speech.

    But what I do not intend is to run the daily affairs of the forum. I also need to get an acceptable overview first, and it would be peachy if the staff continued to help the members, as it always did. Please bear with me, I'm only discovering and exploring this forum and am always afraid I could create havoc by pressing the wrong buttons but the current staff is already training me. Both staff and members appear to be all very nice, educated and friendly people which are conscious of their heritage and roots and I'm really positively surprised compared to what I saw on other forums.

    There is one major change we already implemented (an initial agreement between Aeternitas, Thorburn and me): we banned more or less all European countries but the Germanic countries and many non-European countries from which frequently visitors orginated who disrespected the orientation of our forum. More than 16,000 IP blocks in total. At the same time, Aeternitas was so considerate to remove many threads about non-Germanic ethnicities and by non-Germanic members which are of no relevance to our Germanic culture, roots and heritage. We want this to be a forum focused on Germanic culture, heritage, history, ethnicities, roots and traditions, and do not need people who have no interest in them, who water our culture and values down, who are here to create dramas and conflicts or to offend us. We want to foster and cultivate our culture, learn about our nature, history, problems and values and want to stay as far as possible amongst ourselves.

    We will create a pretty page for people from blocked non-Germanic countries reminding them of the forum's orientation and these facts within the next week.

    This measure might lead to less active members and activity in the beginning, but it is assumed that over time many people interested in their Germanic heritage will join who would not have become members otherwise because the forum appeared too "European", too "pro-white" or too "multi-cultural" for their taste and it should eventually lead to a larger Germanic-focused community, as well as a more Germanic climate and feeling. It will help us to bring us in touch with our roots and to associate with our own people.

    California, eh? Got some friends there. I like it that ya say "folks" and "ain't". Somethin tells me we'll get along.
    You don't know how I often I have been criticized for my "ain'ts" and "howdy's" online but I couldn't care less.

    Hello Forseti, nice to read some informations about you and your life! Nice to meet you.

    Well, I´m Valkyrie and I was a regular on the old Skadi as well as on The Althing. I eventually became a moderator on The Althing and I hope I´m going to do a good job here, too. I´m from Germany (State of Bavaria) and politically rightwing conservative, which means that I have also some kind of dislike for so called "neo-conservatives".

    If you have any further questions feel free to ask me! Currently I´m very glad that the old board with the new topics and posts is back. Yippie!

    Welcome to the new skadi, Forseti. It sounds like you have had a busy weekend laboring away on our behalf. I have been around since 2006 and would like to continue to help as needed. I am a big fan of America's first amendment and the way it is protected here. Having things be US based is a very good idea.

    Best wishes to your family. I hope your wife joins us.

    Welcome once again. I hope this new joint venture works out well for us all - you will know what a great name Skadi once had. It is good to see the show is still on the road.....throughout the entire Germanic World, there is the greatest need for improvements and understanding!
