    Thumbs Up Skadi's anti-depressant properties

    Yep, one more of those rep-point harvesting "how much do you love Skadi" threads

    And yet this is more than the usual brown-nosing and exchange of compliments and blah-blah...

    It is more like my personal rambling about what Skadi means to me.

    Skadi was the first forum I ever registered to. At the time, I did not even know simple things such as how to make multiple quotes..luckily, there were even more retarded people than myself, so I patiently followed the instructions that were meant for Nemo

    At the time there was a greek subsection (and that was quite an experience) and thanks to the trust of the Staff members I became a moderator. That was my first moderating experience ever and it was perhaps the most rewarding one (given the staff structure at the time, and the pleasant atmosphere of fun and cooperation among staff members).

    I have to admit that I much more enjoyed Skadi during its “European Preservation” period. Not so much due to the fact that I am not Germanic myself, but more so because I enjoyed the vast diversity of people, ethnicities, personalities and viewpoints, all of which comprised a perfect pan-European landscape.

    The change of orientation was a rather interesting phenomenon, mainly in terms of observation of the behavior of the non-germanic members. Most of them lost interest quite soon, some of them stuck around for a while, some of them stayed…each one showing with his/her own adaptive properties to the new situation.

    Among the Germanics, I also found some of the best friends online, too numerous too name (they know who they are).

    But there is also one more thing. The last year had been the worst of my life and I have gone through too many hardships. During that time I was less frequently online, and yet I received some very precious help to my problems, when I most needed it.

    There were people that did a lot, such as lei.talk who stood by me like a father during the loss of my best friend. Then there were other people like Raven, Zyklop, Dr. Solar Wolff, Runa, Ewergrin, Thorburn, and many more, who stood by me at less serious yet no less important problems. I will always remember the support that Frans Josef showed me when I was entering the hospital to have an operation.

    Besides all that, I have learned a lot from this forum and I have gained knowledge about stuff I would be too bored to read otherwise Then, in the lowbrow sections I usually find something to make me smile when I am feeling down.

    I am not gonna lie to you: I very much miss the old Skadi and people such as Awar, Rusalka, Johannes, Milesian, Willowsprout and the much more cosier, friendlier atmosphere at that time…
    Yet, even in posters I am much less acquainted with, such as Bridie, Tabitha and Oswiu, Vilay and Fjorgyn, I still find something of that friendliness and feeling “at home”

    All that said, I want to say how precious the Skadi community is. And during the last days that my moods were rather depressed, you managed to lift my spirit

    Great post Blaxis.

    I wish I had been around then.

    Me too.

    Regardless--good stuff Blaxis.

    AW: Skadi's anti-depressant properties

    A very nice posting BloodAxis!

    Even if I wasnt able to experience the old "feeling" of the old Skadi too much (since I joined the forum slightly after/during the change to Germanic Preservation!?), I also have to say that I like this board very much, and I also feel big sympathy for many people here. I was able to gain wisdom to different topics while the entertainment-factor isnt to less, anyway. I understand the world-view of others better now, and I got so much informations to all the world and our own tribe.

    As I joined Skadi, I didnt knew if it was the right decision - and if I will be accepted by the people here. But now I can say it was definately the right decision to join this board full of mostly honest, intelligent and well behaving people! You people...rock! *g*

    The Mountain Negro was a mysterious creature (maybe a hybrid between man and gorilla) that roamed the board until about one year ago and was most famous for endlessly posting his photos in desperate hope to be classified as fully human.
    Not much is known about his whereabouts, most likely he went back to his mirror-clad cave in ex-Yugoslawia.

    AW: Skadi's anti-depressant properties

    Thank you Blaxis for the sweet words. I often feel with you and when I'm very unhappy or depressed some of Skadi members help me to find my lost smile.
    Skadi is not a location for depressing and emotional spam but with the friendships you got while your time at Skadi you get people to talk. And thats good ... that brings the members of Skadi more together and increase the feeling of a community (and maybe of fellowship)


    Feel embraced by me ^^

    Re: Skadi's anti-depressant properties

    I didn' get to experience the anti depressant effects so far. Quite the contrary, some people depress the hell out of me. Some rep points and the funny PM's from Bridie ad Oswiu made me smile though

    Nice post Blaxis!
    I think Awar left well after joined, but I came by some of his posts, interesting fellow.
