THANK THE GODS

Post  spokane89 on Sat Mar 23, 2013 10:12 pm

And here I thought I'd lost you all and was alone in the world. So happy you guys were on the ball and set this up. It's a shame we couldn't grab all the posts from the other forum, guess we will just have to start over eh? Guess it's official though, we lost Tim for good? :/

It wasn't easy, even with the most diligent searching this was still buried under pages of Google search pages. But all's well that end well eh? Smile

I'm shocked you even found it on google, most others here had it referred to them through various chat groups and emails. But like you said, all's well it ends well. Make sure to ask lots of questtions, the more conversation and activity we have here the easier it is to find for others.
Gods bless.

Akhrēlos had to find me through a mutual facebook friend, I think.

I found J_Agathokles' email on your site, Erōdios, and emailed him about it and then he spread the word. The machanics of it are unkown to me, but he is the one that messeged most people on here. Aside from formerly Hellenismos.us and now this, I have no contact with anyone outside my town. tongue

Neither do I, I know there is another follower in a few towns over but I never got their contact information and then Hellenismos.us went down so, that was the end of that, after-thought is a bitter-sweet gift from the Divine.

Does anyone know where Linda is? The nice member lady from Sweden? She'd been on Hellenismos.us longer than I even, I think, and continued posting up until the end.

I hope she shows up.

That was about to be my question until my fone died. I second that notion, she needs to get on here. I really wish I had finished this and posted a link on the old site, as I origionally intended. So many people on there are lost now unless they can find us Sad

I second the thanking of the Gods!
Sheer panic hit when I couldnt bring the Hellenismos.us up. I got so much from that site, and I enjoyed reading posts from serious followers, and not- forgive my bluntness- the 'flutteries'.
I cant wait to follow the topics!

Nice to see you posting, Apollyon. I hope you enjoy it here as much as you did Hellenismos.us. If you don't mind me asking, do you follow Religio Romana? Your path says Olympianism, and your picture is suggestive of that. And luckily we are so early in the Forums hopefully long history that we don't get the "flutteries." Smile Anyway, welcome! Razz

I do what I can to practice...though I confess I am out of sync with some of the faith.
I guess it doesnt help that Im still secretive about it. To the world I am a roman catholic, while in my heart I am a Roman.

Yes Agathokles should get a medal, or at least a cookie. I occasionally read his blog and contacted him to ask wtf happened, and he directed me here.

I hope Linda finds her way here as well. I also worry for the non-English speaking members, some of those language boards were relatively active but I don't know any of the participants. I hope some are bi-lingual and also manage to reconnect with us, they must feel even more adrift.

@Callisto: I am from Germany and often read posts in the section for German hellenists on hellenismos.us. The German section was, in comparison to the others, the most active section.
However, I guess sections for non-English countries are not necessary, as I am (most time) able to read and write in English. If I do not understand a sentence, I can translate it or ask to paraphrase it and if I want to contact German board members I can write messages.
