    Greetings from a Wandering Saxon

    Greetings and Wie Geht es Euch.

    Several years ago whilst spending several months house bound convalescing from major surgery; I chanced upon Skadi.net, found it interesting and made it a frequent haunt during my incapacity.

    These days I have not been so much at leisure to indulge in purely recreational Internet activities, so I was caught quite unawares when discovering our Goddess had ascended to Valhalla never to be seen by mortal man again. Fortunately the Skadi.net url is redirecting to The Althing, or I might never have discovered what happened to her.

    It appears that The Althing is Skadi resurrected, reborn from the ashes of her former incarnation, fresh and revitalised like a Phoenix newly arisen. I can recognize many names from the old forum, so I am assuming this is very much the same community under a new guise.
    I always felt Skadi.net was an amasing achievement. It was undoubtedly one of the largest and most active euro-centric cultural forums on the net; if not one of the largest and most active message boards period. I never fully comprehended how it became known to so many; especially Germans, whose government oppresses such activities as ethnic pride for actual Germans who are descended from Alemanni, Saxons, and Franks, rather than Turks and Vietnamese.

    The fact that The Althing seems to be thriving, is a testament to the devotion of Skadi’s many thousands of members, and of the dedicated staff who are carrying on the tradition of the cordial, high quality environment Skadi.net was known for. Congratulations. I am very pleased to see this worthy resource carrying on seemingly undiminished. Skadi was a tonic for the Northern European soul. The Althing seems to draw from the same cup of enchanted meade.

    Skadi was always rather unattainable, and mysterious. Does the Althing maintain this ethereal quality? Is the wise and all knowing father Tiwaz still about? Or has he joined his Goddess among the Aesir?

    Best regards to the community,

    Scear.

    Welcome to this forum Scear. I don't know Skadi but I have been a member here for some time and I like it here very much. It's a place where we can be proud of our culture and heritage without being labeled as racists and haters. Make yourself at home and hope for good discussions.

    Welcome wandering friend, I hope your time here is enjoyable, and your contribution enlightening.

    It has been my experience that this particular reincarnation is but a pale comparison, by the fact that it's resources, as in comparison to Skadi, are lacking.

    I was caught quite off-guard by the fall of skadi, and quite dismayed that no backups of her content remained. I felt we had been dealt a near mortal blow, so much lost.

    I always felt at home upon skadi, it had a perfect balance of reflective and objective inquiry. It wasn't vulgar or distasteful, and insofar as I recall, the community itself was quite polite and well intentioned.

    I always hoped this board would take on that again, but as of yet, it is still working t'wards what skadi was.

    I sincerely hope noone takes these opinions in the wrong manner, and that noone feels insulted or maligned. I was shocked by what happened to skadi, and quite dismayed, so I hope you would bear with me that I have found it hard to entirely adapt to the new community.


    One day she will return,
    One day O beautiful and awe-inspiring inspiration...
    O noble and uplifting grace, the beautiful reflection of thy face
    Gaze once more upon me, once more through me, let two again become one.
    -James

    Hello and welcome, what a wonderfully written introduction I look forward to seeing your other posts!
    Cattle die, kinsmen die,
    the self must also die;
    but glory never dies,
    For the one who is able to achieve it.

    How could I ever forget a name like Blood Axis? Glad to see you still about. I never imagined in my wildest dreams that Skadi.net would disappear into the ether. At least part of her survives in the Althing und in dem Thiazi Forum. Hopefully Skadi is content making snowmen and riding about in her sleigh in Thrymheim, worshipped from afar.

    @Teutonicmensch

    Apparently Tiwaz has made a definitive statement pertaining to the demise of Skadi.net. It doesn't seem completely outside the realm of possibility that she might be resurrected. Statement here....

    Difference from Skadi forum

    One thing which I do NOT miss from Skadi forum is the Hitler-worshippers and their threads about "Our Beloved Fuehrer". I also do not miss Skadi forum's often blatant anti-Semitism and anti-Americanism. These aspects of Skadi forum drove me away from it long before its demise, and into the arms of Blut und Boden forum, a much more gemuetlich organisation where I have felt very welcome.

    The aspects of Skadi forum which made me feel uncomfortable there have been greatly soft-pedalled in The Althing. Much of what was best in Skadi forum has been preserved here. This forum has a stimulating and intellectually challenging atmosphere, as did Skadi. In short, The Althing is what I wished that Skadi forum had been when I was a member.
