Dead Hyperlinks

All of this material you see on my blog archive has been moved from its original place. This means that whilst I have preserved the old blog, many of the links have been broken. In the course of time, these will be repaired. However, you will most likely be able to find articles that are linked by using the search function – since most of the broken links are internal links to Yorkshire Viking. So if you find, for example, that a link to the logo does not work, write “logo” in the search field. That may be a good temporary fix until the old links can be updated.

Terms and Conditions

Conditions of Use

Welcome to the CQD Yorkshire Viking Norway blog! Together we are a community of bloggers! For the benefit of everyone, we have a few “house rules”.

This blog is an agreement you enter should you choose to use any of our blogs. It is therefore important everybody understands what that agreement entails. If anything should nevertheless be unclear, please use the contact form at Support so that you can query the matter.

Traditional Rules of British English

If we mean that something is non-negotiable, we shall often use the word “shall” rather than “will”. This is always true in the Address and Third Person. However, we do the opposite when we are writing in the First Person. If we say that we will do something, this is also non-negotiable. If you think this be complicated, we suggest you refer to the traditional rule for “will” and “shall”.

What Is Expected of You

There is nothing especially unreasonable we expect! However, you agree that you shall not behave in an unacceptable manner. You shall always abide by the Law.

      • We expect you to use common sense! If you write things that could be libellous – either in your own country or here in Norway, then you understand that you terminate your right to use our blogs.
      • You shall respect both the blog owner and other users. That means that you shall not send them unsolicited email and/ or correspondence (what constitutes “unsolicited” shall be determined by the same common sense referred to above). If you do so, we may terminate your right to use our blogs. We will always terminate your right to use our blogs if the recipient has specifically and previously requested that correspondence not be sent.
      • Please note that such unacceptable behaviour on any blog whose owner is a member of our community – and not just on this particular blog – shall likewise result in termination of your right to use our blogs.

If any of the above is a problem for you, then it is probably better you do not use our blogs. Otherwise you are more than welcome!


In order to enforce this agreement registration is sometimes necessary. Sometimes (because the system already “knows” you) you will not be asked to register and you can browse our blogs as an unregistered member. If you are asked to register, we shall only ask for enough information as is necessary for that purpose.

You are asked to use your real name. However you yourself can configure your account such that you write under another name if you so wish. You do not have to give your full address BUT you agree not to use deception. If you are registering yourself with our blogs and should reasonably understand that you are unwelcome because of your previous behaviour, your deception is in itself a violation of these Conditions For Use. We also regard every circumvention of our security as deception for the same reason (electronically or otherwise).

If you nevertheless do not wish to register your real name, providing you do not fall into the category of someone whose previous behaviour makes you unwelcome (see the point about this immediately above), you may use the contact form in the support section – give us your user name, and a short note stating that you are a bone fide person of flesh and blood, and that you agree to our terms and conditions.

Registration has to be approved. If your registration is not approved, find yourself another blog. The decision of the administrator is not open to any discussion, and is final. Therefore should your membership be rejected, you will not receive any formal message to that effect. You will simply be unable to access our site.

Anybody who violates these terms, as set out here, shall be removed from our blogs immediately their violation come to light. Exclusion shall be permanent in every case.

These Terms and Conditions may be amended at any time.
