    Back.. for Now

    So imagine my surprise the other night when I googled something clicked on the link and realised after a few seconds that I was looking at the Skadi site again.


    Fot those of you who don't know it has been blocked for people in Ireland to access the site for a few years. It suddenly went off one day and a few months after that I found I was blocked from logging in. So I couldn't even read it even though I was posting regulary and enjoyed reading the Anthropology section mostly. I joined the site in 2005. If somebody would like to explain what happened I'd appreciate it.


    I never understood why this was the case. Millions of Negros around the world have access but not Irish people. Never made sense. I never claimed to be Germanic and I have very little Germanic blood (even though I come from a Viking town) but I do think Germanics should preserve their own culture and race because as do I with mine.


    So if I don't get blocked again I'll keep visiting. If I do get blocked then Skadi misses out on my postings.

    Welcome back, I've seen your old posts, so I recongnized your avatar.

    I don't oppose if there are a handful Celtic members, as long as it stays a Germanic forum and they respect the rules. It can be good to hear frome Irish on how the people there think of Celtic and Germanic things etc.

    Welcome back.

    As a non-Germanic member, you should read this announcement in order to get an idea of what is expected of you: A Forum for People of Germanic Heritage. Technically, you could easily have continued to participate despite the block against Ireland by notifying us of your desire to do so.

    Cheers folks! Some of the names look familiar to me too.


    I did send an email some time back but I don't think I got a reply. I've read the rules and not here to rock the boat and as Méldmir said I can give thins from another perspective.

    By the way, why can I now get access to the site? Did Skadi relax this rule?

    Welcome back Dropkick,

    The administrators wrote they had to remove the IP block because it was causing slow loading for the site.
    But Skadi's policies about non-Germanic users are the same. I.e. it only accepts new Germanic registrations.
    However, the non-Germanics who registered on the former Skadi (pre-merge) and at the Althing are allowed to keep their accounts as long as they are interested in the Germanic topic of this site and contribute accordingly.
    So if you have any interests in these areas, you are welcome to stay as any other member.
    Maybe you could tell us about the Viking influences in Ireland because there is a Germanic Influences forum here now.
    The administration just want to avoid Skadi to become a place for off-topic discussions and keep the focus Germanic.

    The new owner Forseti explained it in his introduction thread:
    http://forums.skadi.net/showthread.php?t=100793

    Millions of Negroes didn't register on Skadi, but when it was the Althing many non-Germanics registered and some of them with multiculturalist agendas but thankfully now they're on their own anthro forums spewing their bullcrap there instead. And there were some Irish people demanding an Irish forum because the Irish are apparently Germanic. So I could understand the new owner wanted to avoid these things on Skadi.

    I didn't know the IP block was lifted. Anyway I'm not against the presence of a few Celts here but some Irish people are usually anti-English/Germanic, they even have a forum where they bash the English as a frequent activity. So I'm ok with a few friendly Irishmen here but I wouldn't like to see them in big numbers.

    There's always a loud minority who likes to argue. Liberals are another example.


    I think some Irish people who think they are Germanic might be getting mixed up with what the word means.

    I could have tried something but I didn't think there was any need to 'sneek' on here.
