    Skadi Forum Orientation?

    I've been asked by an admin if I don't want to consider to enhance the potential target audience of Skadi once again.

    In addition, there are several posters who miss a stronger focus on the Anglo-Saxon and British aspect (i. e. including non-Germanic Brits, in particular British Celts).

    While a 'European' orientation is definitely out of the question, others are theoretically conceivable. We actually discussed this once in the Staff forum.

    Including the Anglo-Saxons is the easiest, as they are already included. Anglo-Saxons are Germanic, but maybe one would need to emphasize their particular heritage and significance (about half of the Germanics identify with Anglo-Saxons) by mentioning them explicitly in the forum banner and forum mission statement. There seem to be quite a few people that confuse 'Germanic' with 'German.'

    Adding British is also out of the question because it is not a meta-ethnic concept -- but adding Celtic is not, albeit it would (once again) really need a major restructuring, affecting the whole Staff. If it would be systematic, is another question, but I can understand the many people of Germanic heritage who also have Celtic roots. The two cultures are interwoven to a certain degree -- more so than any others.

    Personally, I'm for leaving things as they are, or for emphasizing Anglo-Saxon. I haven't made up my mind. So I'd ask everyone to vote and to give his input.

    Let the better argument triumph!

    In my opinion, Skadi must remain Germanic. I wouldn't mind seeing an Anglo-Saxon partner to Skadi, though. Just no Celtic stuff.

    AW: Skadi Forum Orientation?

    Maybe the discussion started because the thread by creating an other (an more british/anglo-saxon) Skadi forum?

    In my opinion Skadi is for a huge community of people which are interesting in hundreds of different things. Including all kinds of germanic races, myths and history.

    But instead to make another another anglo-saxonian Skadi or more british or whatever Skadi, we should try to be ONE big community and not splitting away into myriads of little platforms.

    If Skadi needs a new subfora for especially this kind of Skadi users, I'm sure this would be the smallest problem for the admins.

    Anglo-Saxonian people are welcome here and I have not a problem with them. More if they are splitting off the communiy.

    Being a homogenous Englishman, I acknowledge we Brits(incl. English) have alot of Celtic Heritage. This isn't so strong in England, but mainly in Scotland and Wales.

    I don't see Celts as any less than us Germanics. They are largely N.European and i believe are significant in Britain, Ireland, Holland and Belgium.

    I have actually. Maybe they aren't culturally, but i have read sources which suggest a racial component. Please don't ask me to provide this source, I have never saved it to favourites, as i didn't think it was so questionable.

    I assumed this discussion was sufficiently overlapping as such.

    Re: Skadi Forum Orientation?

    I'm half Irish by blood, near enough, but as I said on the "Who is part Irish here?" thread, it is "Cringingly Fashionable" to be Irish, or 'Celtic' in general. Sadly, the term Celtic is liable to attract all kinds of oddballs and New Age types, and would lower the tone of the forum.
    I'm a Russophile, myself, and would like to see more involvement from our Slavonic comrades, in a broader European context, perhaps, but I accept that this would be at the expense of Skadi's very identity. It is good that there is a forum catering purely to Germanic matters, as these are often overlooked in our CeltoGermanic nations of the periphery of Germandom, due to the influences of the above fashion. The fact that the forum is so tightly focused really lets the member know what is expected of him or her, and maintains the clear character of the board.

    As for more Anglo Saxon stuff, well, we've already got a fair few subfora anyroad. We don't need anything else. And keeping us in with the rest of yous might do a little to cure our insular parochial instincts!
