    I believe I have warned that mindless Hitler worshiping and neo-nazism would eventually be the death of promising Germanic factions as well as fora such as Skadi. Of course the Germanic character is lost, white nationalism and neo-nazism have little to do with Germanic ethnos, culture or language in the first place. It is funny how neo-nazis have been waiting for NS to "rise from the ashes" for decades now. The alternative right is full of zionists. It is not going to lead to a Germanic ethnostate but to a consolidation of zionist ideology and power.

    Do you mean those people get banned or do you mean they just "feel" uncomfortable? You cannot have a discussion with non-differing views. The problem is that most people neglect what others say, they don't even try to understand it, and usually don't even respond to it, they just repeat their views.
    Yet, this is no problem of Skadi, just of idiots in general.

    Yes, you have. However, you fail to establish a connection that this is what actually happened.

    So you are not waiting on anything and are content with the status quo?

    If you want white-hot material, interesting discussion points and all the latest (cutting edge) newsworthy topics, even before they hit the media, 8chan are a seriously out-of-control-bag-of-goodies.
    I've spent my entire time there laughing my ass off and shitposting for fun. Seriously, you need an 8chan conjoined thread on here {expect inordinate amounts of shilling}. I'll make a thread on here myself unless someone beats me to it.
    Why I like 8chan? => Funniest pictures I've ever seen in my life, seriously! Quality content, latest content, they beat the media to the punch. It's filled with operative trolls though.

    Also, to the mods, I couldn't log on here for the longest time. The password recovery mechanism hadn't posted to my email account. As I had browser stored it. Since the upgrade that was lost. I only found my old hard copy password note for here a moment ago. You might want to check the recovery mechanism.

    And how exactly do you do that, apart from expressing yourself civilly? When you have to take extra care tha your posts "don't invite hateful responses", then you're no longer on a board of like-minds.

    Furthermore, we're also talking about newbies, who simply express an opinion and don't know whatever the "consensus" is or whose feathers might be ruffled by simply stating their opinions. Being met with suspicion and hateful responses doesn't invite them to come back.

    I mean both. Either people get banned (or censored, or disciplined in some way) or they get intimidated because of others ganging up on them or pointing fingers at them

    New members especially are treated with suspicion, especially if they have an "unusual" opinion which isn't shared by the current Skadi majority (or certain cliques).

    You cannot have a discussion with non-differing views.
    If you read my previous posts, I welcome differing views. I am simply talking about tone and attitude. Accepting and tolerating other views does not mean entertaining them. Others can disagree, and point out why, which leads to debate and which is good. People either larn new things or consolidate their knowledge. But having a strict, radical and exclusive definition of what falls under Germanic preservation and excluding other Germanics because we do not agree with their views leads to the opposite, to what we have now. Someone posts an article about immigration and you get 1-2 replies of how anti-white it is and how those "muds" should be deported, most people agree and plaster it with a few thanks, and there is little debate.

    There is too much narrow-mindedness here for discussion to evolve, IMO, and people see diversity of opinion as something negative. Why, it's "divisive", it "disturbs the peace". Well, now we have "peace". Hardly anyone asks questions, we gain no new members (the few who register are quickly classified as trolls, not "pure" enough or not radicalized enough) and the old ones have already discussed many topics, so there is little brainstorming left.

    I just did and so did you. You can have a discussion with people of differing views and people with like minded views without inviting hateful responses.

    As members here we should invite new people, however no member here new or old should be anti-Germanic or be pro-multiculturalism.

    There is too much narrow-mindedness here for discussion to evolve, IMO, and people see diversity of opinion as something negative. Why, it's "divisive", it "disturbs the peace".

    I agree with there being too much narrow mindedness, but we should not invite others who want to preach hatred towards Germanics and things that are counter productive to the preservation of our race and culture.

    There is a large amount of diversity among Germanics naturally without interjecting other races and cultures. Take yourself and myself as an example Norman Pride, you are proud of your Germanic heritage and I am proud of my Bavarian heritage, they are very different but within the scope of Germanics firmly. The same goes for members here that have different religions or lack of religion, I don't hate Christians even though I don't agree with them, in fact the only religions I would never agree with being here is judaism and islam for the very reason they are out to destroy us.
    Life is like a fire hydrant- sometimes you help people put out their fires, but most of the time you just get peed on by every dog in the neighborhood.

    Go for it. I only heard about 8chan because of Q. Or was it 4chan?

    Also, to the mods, I couldn't log on here for the longest time. The password recovery mechanism hadn't posted to my email account. As I had browser stored it. Since the upgrade that was lost.

    Are you referring to this vB 4?

    This current site. It would not post out the recovery password to my email account. If you've got newbies, they might be experiencing the same thing.

    I had the same problem but on the other Skadi, before it reverted (vbulletin 5?)

    The system wouldn't take my password, the one that was saved in the browser and with which I always logged in. I clicked forgot password and entered my email address and waited, but there wasn't anything in my email. I checked in the spam folder but nothing. I tried again, checked to see if the email address was correct, waited, and nothing. I had to ask another staff to contact admin to change my password...

    I think there could be a problem with receiving the emails from Skadi.

    Personally, I think blaming the person that gets hateful responses for the hateful responses is scapegoating. Unless someone is trolling or disrespectful, they're not "inviting hateful responses".

    As members here we should invite new people, however no member here new or old should be anti-Germanic or be pro-multiculturalism.
    Who said anything about anti-Germanicism or multiculturalism?

    What I think is that some people are quick to label anyone who doesn't share their ideology as an "enemy".

    I've been accused to be a hater of Germans because I do not approve of national socialism and of certain actions of Nazi Germany. Or because I do not approve of Andrew Anglin's tactics or of violence. Do you think this is reasonable? Because I don't. And if I've been made to feel uneasy, I can only imagine how 19 year old new members who are barely just starting to know the world feel. You do not educate people this way, you turn them away.

    I agree with there being too much narrow mindedness, but we should not invite others who want to preach hatred towards Germanics and things that are counter productive to the preservation of our race and culture.
    I didn't say that we should invite anyone who preaches hatred towards Germanics. I am not a hater, of either Germanics or non-Germanics. I am against preaching hatred towards anyone. I am talking about creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for other Germanics, who come here because they are interested in their heritage, their culture, their people, and providing them with a platform where they can express their opinion without fear, as the Skadi mission statement says.

    There is a large amount of diversity among Germanics naturally without interjecting other races and cultures. Take yourself and myself as an example Norman Pride, you are proud of your Germanic heritage and I am proud of my Bavarian heritage, they are very different but within the scope of Germanics firmly. The same goes for members here that have different religions or lack of religion, I don't hate Christians even though I don't agree with them, in fact the only religions I would never agree with being here is judaism and islam for the very reason they are out to destroy us.
    I am talking about ideology first and foremost, and more specifically not adhering to certain ideologies or ideas (e.g. right wing) that some people are set on believing is the only acceptable definition of Germanic preservation. The alt right is white nationalist, not Germanic preservationist, and not all Germanic preservationists are necessarily sympathetic to NS/alt right.

    I like Skadi but I agree with Bernhard, it seems to go too much in the alt right direction. In fact, that's what made me hesitate to register here at first, because I thought I wouldn't fit in. That's just my personal feedback anyway.
