I don't know about Aeternitas or if the forums could ever be separated again.
    Hi! Welcome to Skadi and thanks for everything you do. It's really a great feeling to witness that all the posts and wisdom all these awesome people created on Skadi over 5 years are not buried in a drawer anymore. I assume the same can be said for all the immensely valuable contributions of The Althing which remain accessible.

    But I think I also have to correct something here. I gave you the database "as is" and I don't want it back. If you read the license, I put all the content into the public domain a long time ago anyways, as long as people don't use it commercially. I gave the forum and the domain details to you and I don't want them back. I actually look at the forum more as the common intellectual creation and property of the thousands of people who contributed and made it to what is. If you should ever be no longer able to run the forum (for which reasons ever), give it to somebody (maybe some staff members) who are able, want to continue and have the time and means.

    All what I had asked you was to send me a copy if the forum should ever go totally offline again, so that I can either look for someone else who can and wants to sustain Skadi, or maybe even upload it myself somewhere.

    I hope that clarifies things for you.

    Thanks also to Aeternitas who dumped a lot of garbage posts.

    Keep your head up!

    Welcome, Forseti. I'd first like to thank you for your help in resurrecting Skadi, it is very appreciated. I hope you make yourself at home and become familiar with the place gradually. If you have any questions, feel free to ask any of the Staff members, we will be glad to assist you. I am looking forward to our future cooperation.

    Same here, regarding the Althing database.

    Well hello I did wonder when I saw the name on the forum leaders, I'm totally lost on here too many posts by people I've never heard of and some people have changed names. I'm sure I'll work it all out though hope we don't cause you too much trouble
    Cattle die, kinsmen die,
    the self must also die;
    but glory never dies,
    For the one who is able to achieve it.

    Sayings of the High One.

    Welcome Forseti! I've been longing to hear more about you, ever since you made that stupendous post on the Skadi Rules in the summer of 2002.
