  • Fortíð new video! Slays all! http://youtu.be/xC_ptz5mAb4
  • v thanks. But it still strikes me as odd. How is "+i and alt+d (on most EU-keyboards at least) so much of a hassle? For instance: are we expected to rename Månegarm to just Manegarm? Týr to Tyr? etc. I for one prefer the "original" name with the """special""" characters, who do their work just fine and actually make the names easier to pronounce...
  • I asked them on FB about the name and this is what they replied to me: Here's how it goes... Fortíð is the original name and is Icelandic. Fortid is the Norwegian version of the same name. Same meaning, just changed location from Iceland to Norway. Our logo says Fortíð. But online at least (and especially when for writing without the special Icelandic characters), we are sticking to Fortid. There is no right or wrong here basically but regarding LastFM, we would prefer Fortid since that's the one people mostly search for. Thanks for your interest and support! E. Thorberg
