    What is Your Germanic Background?

    I didn't see such a thread here and I think it'd be interesting to know statistically how many of us are from where. I call it "background" and not ethnicity because I know there are debates whether American is an ethnicity and so forth.

    This I believe was started when Skadi had a different orientation (European instead of Germanic) and there were many non-Germanics here. It uses broad terms like European without specifying what kind. My point with this poll is to see statistically how well the Germanic countries are represented on Skadi.

    The last few pages are quite recent-ish. Including the page where I give my ancestry in detail more than anyone would probably care to know.

    So, in any case, give an example of what kind of answer you're looking for.

    I see now, the poll wasn't up before...

    Skadi used to be a European forum? I didn't know that... Did they kick out all the non-Germanics then?

    And about your remark about American ethnicity, there is indeed no such thing. Well, except for Native Americans off course. Other Americans are colonials and there ancestry lies elsewhere, no future without roots!

    I have a 75% Baltic (Latvian) background and a 25% German(ic) background. But I like this Germanic board more than the other one because on the other one people are angry and respectless to me because of my opinion on that argument from a few days back.

    The difference between Baltics and Germanics is not that big.

    ^ 75% - 25% as well

    By the way, why are unregistered guests voting in this poll? They're compromising it's validity

    Not necessarily? It could be interesting to see what kind of audience Skadi has too.
    THINK! It's not illegal yet.

    Hopefully, provided those who are voting are real audience and not trolls
