Community Newsletter Sept/Oct 2007
It’s been awhile and there are soooo many new things happening around the place.
We have had some changes on the staff front recently. Several of our long term staff have gone into lesser action roles or retired. It is with sadness that over the last couple of months we relenquish some or all claims on Decebal, ConstintineXI, Rider, Sparticus, Genghus, and the Diplomat. Good luck guys in all your endevours hope to have you back soon.
On a happier note SearchAndDestroy ,The Hidden Face ,gcle2003 ,Akolouthos and Aster Thrax Eupator have joined the team. Glad to have you with us.
The best news happened earlier this month with the move to our new server. Many of the problems that have plagued the forum for sometime seemed to be solved. No more errors, long waits, and lost posts. Thank you for all your work Northman and Cyrus in making the move so easy and seamless for all of us.
With the new server came additional costs. To cover some of those cost and keep AE ad-less we have gone to a system where we can acept donations. If you wish to help out you can find all the info here. To accompany this new stratigy Northman devised this neat little logo that can be added to your sig ( if you want) honoring all those that so kindly help out. Thanks to everyone involved.
The forum is still growing steadily although not quit as fast and we now find ourselves with a membership of over 6780 or so people. Welcome to all new members!

Originally posted by SekoThat is what I would like to know too. "What, who are you?" I have admiration for someone who can explain this without resorting to a fruitless imagination. Let's eliminate Proto-Bulgars from this picture for the sake of this arguement. Eliminate asian genes too, which one of you is more than gladly willing to do. Eliminate Slavic ancestry. Eliminate Greek relations. Eliminate Avar relations.
Instead let's focus on the Thracians. Not only Dacians, the heirs of the land, or the Romans mind you. Let's go further back in time and include the Cimmerians in this too. Then let's conclude that you have more ancient Thracian genes in modern Bulgaria than all of the latter day peoples put together.
You see how hard it is too believe. Shouldn't ancient graves relate only to those ancients? The rest is theory or wishful thinking. I will play ignorant fo a while and assume that Thracians are the predominant ancestors of modern Bulgars. Happy so far? I don't know why other than they 'llived on this land'. Centuries before todays Bulgars! Being somewhat rational, I wonder, whatever happened to those other peoples, after the Thracians, that lived in Bulgaria? Slavs, Avars, Bulgars, Greeks, Turks, are they not part of today's Bulgar composition?
But I'm not finished. I want to be just as proud of my heritage too. So I will absurdly say that I am Akkadian, Hittite, Lydian, Greek, Persian, Turk, and anything else that gloriously passed my ancestors way. Most importantly I will fixate on one of the most distant and assume I have 70% Hittite genes. Then I would dig up all kinds of ad hoc articles to prove my point. In fact, I will mentally eliminate anyone, after the ancients, so I could sleep well at night!
Who am I really?
Who are you?
The editors of AE magazine are busy getting the next issue ready. It promises to be a great one.
