    Skadi in German

    What have I done??

    I must have pressed the wrong button at some point because everything on the board (apart from the actual posts) is now written in German. It's not a disaster because my reading is generally okay but it's still a bit disconcerting, so how can I return it to "English" mode?

    Click on Kontrollzentrum in your top left. Then in the menu on the left, click on Einstellungen ändern. Then scroll down to the end. Where it says Deutsch, change it to English. Conclude by clicking on Änderungen speichern below it. After that, take a beer and sit back.

    Well in fact I decided to do just this, Thusnelda

    It’s reassuring to have the English option but in the end I left it in German AND I even made 2 posts in German later that evening!

    Your German is pretty good

    I've wondered about whether you speak German when I saw you've thanked me on a German post I made some days ago, hehe. Cool!

    Yes, Thusnelda is right. Every Germanic should be capable of speaking German, the most superior of all Germanic languages. Whoever doesn't, is unworthy, this is why we have undertaken the drastic step to force-set it to German for all English speakers, you know?

    Don't worry, using the English setting (I find much of the German version to be rather clumsily translated), some points are displayed in Norwegian. Perhaps that has to do with me being into BM, though?
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    Thanks, Velvet! I used to have a German girlfriend in about 1985 and I learnt a lot of German that way, but nowadays I have to listen to the Deutsche Welle (which is far less fun)

    What you say though has given me the idea of going round all the other language sections thanking people, and before long I'll be considered a genius

    What's that, Sigurd? Not Bondage and Masochism, is it??

    I would guess Norwegian black metal, best in the world they say. Personally I prefer Grieg.

    Btw. Could I get Skandi in Old Norse? It would help in my studies.

    I went there, and here is what I found:

    I really don't want to think about why these apes are learning German.
