I know I'm a new member, but I was wondering if there was ever any thought or request to have an Asatru/Heathenry SIG?

That way it would also be geared toward Anglo-Saxon and Germanic Heathenry alongside Asatru?

There may have been in the past, I don't remember.  Generally we only create new SIGs when they are in high demand.  Since our sister forum is Asatru Lore (link at the top of the side bar on the left side of your screen), and many of our Heathen members are also members there, an Asatru/Heathenry SIG seems a bit unlikely.

Then again, I think the hosts are ultimately the ones who decide this kind of thing.

There's an Asatru group on TCN as well. If enough Asatruar to keep it active wanted an Asatru SIG, we could certainly have one, but Asatru Lore is already there.

Tangent: I've been wondering if there's enough presence here on TC to start a SIG for Asatru/Heathenry? I know that's what AsatruLore is supposed to be for, but they have a rather different tone than TC at this point... I wasn't sure where to post this thought  Huh
I'm bumping this here, as it came up on another thread. Can we reevaluate this possibly? AL is all fine and good... but it's not TC.

Just a thought...

I'd be interested as I said in the other thread.  Do we have a link to that somewhere?

Any new SIGs would probably have to wait until I can get a new computer (which could be months in a worse case scenario) as setting one up requires web site work as well as forum work. Sad  However, if there is enough interest, we will do one. So far, I'm not sure the interest is there, so those interested do need to post in on this thread.

For info on what I am talking about computer wise, forum members who are logged in can see this thread: Randall's Computer Dead as a Doornail

The idea was resurrected in this thread:
http://www.ecauldron.net/forum/index.php?topic=11137.msg191347#msg191347
(Link takes you to the post where the idea is introduced.)

I count eight people there (including HB and SatAset) who have expressed an interest in an Asatru/Heathenry SIG in that thread.  I've asked them to post in over here as well.

Definitely interested.

Is there a way to have more than one SIG leader-type person? I'd be more than happy to help make sure this SIG runs smoothly, but I've started up college again and help would be most appreciated. Smiley

I can count three or four SIGs at the top of my head that have two SIG Leaders (not counting the Ta Hiera Hellenic Polytheist SIG which as I understand is a special case).  So it is possible.

Not Randall, but:  I believe we've got more than one leader in other SIGs, so I wouldn't think it would be a problem.  Smiley  Thanks for volunteering!  Aside from interest, the other thing we kind of need to start something up is someone to lead it, so...  Wink

Anyone else want to volunteer to help Ellen out here?

I know I have someone in mind, but I think that it would be best to let her volunteer.

I would like to help out anyway I can if an Asatru/Heathen SIG gets started here, but I know there are better options out there than myself for this.
