    Hail from the Deep Forest

    Hail from the Pacific Northwest!

    I'm here in the Seattle area amid the deep forest (not joking!). Even at noon the light shines greenish. Someone had recommended Skadi.net to me, and I ended up here instead. I am Heathen/Forn Sidr, and my main area of interest is ancient records, documents, and languages of Northern Europe. I have done some work in Old High German and now I'm working on Old Norse.

    I also study the mundane and spiritual aspects of the Runes and other ancient writing systems. I am particularly interested in the deciphering of the Vinca writing and other related scripts. The Vinca writing is a northern European writing system that pre-dates the Egyptian hieroglyphs by over 1,000 years!

    I am interested in all aspects of Northern European culture, and am currently taking Scandinavian folk dancing lessons (both educational and aerobic!) I also enjoy playing ice hockey and hiking around the forests of our beautiful Pacific Northwest!

    So you see I have a lot to keep me busy...

    Welcome Runsinger!

    I did a search and that Vinca script does look interesting:

    Omniglot Vinca
    Old European Script - Wikipedia

    There are many theories about the Vinca writing. I can start a thread on it and give what I know about it. The writing patterns indicate that it is definitely related to the Danube culture, and it may be a root system for Norse Runes, Ogham, Hungarian Rova script and Celto-Iberian script. Greek script does not seem to be related though.

    Under which category would it be the best to start the thread?

    Back on Skadi forum

    I have not posted for a long time, so I thought it I had better introduce myself again.

    I stopped posting here because of some rude behavior by members on the forum. One even accused me of being Jewish for no particular reason. Also, some people who disagreed with me showed a lack of reason in their answer, as well as general rudeness. I don't like to participate on forums where a person says things in their posts that they would be too cowardly to say to a person's face.

    Anyway, the Skadi forum sent me a couple of invitations to come back, so I thought I'd give it a try, as I have a great interest in promoting Nordic/Germanic Culture and values.

    I have updated my profile with an accurate representation of my ethnicity, and I have traced it back twelve generations. Please do not challenge me about it, as some have done here in the past.

    I'm not trying to be confrontational, but I think some people should consider the consequences of their words.

    Welcome back, Runesinger. I have moved your post to your previous introduction thread.

    Looking through your history, I can see that your classification thread was abused by a user trying to make a point. It does not look to me like you were specifically targetted or hounded. Still, if you encounter rule violations, and rude behaviour against you falls into that category, you can always use the report button next to the post in question and we will take care of it.
