Norway claims a part of Antarctica (Queen Maud Land). Why don't you support the Antarctic territorial claims of Norway?

The lack of continental European members of this forum is surprising to me. I'm the only German member of this forum (I'm also the only Kurdish member of this forum). Sir RomanD is the only Russian member of this forum. No Spaniards and Italians are members of this forum, and no Frenchmen are active members of this forum (Hubert Gaston and ContraTerrentumEQR have left the forum).
The following members of the forum are continental Europeans:
Azadi (a German Kurd)
Sir RomanD (a Russian)
Murtagon (a Bulgarian)
InVinoVeritas (a Finn)
Bator (a Norwegian Dane)
DavidV (a Czech Australian)

You would be excused for thinking ContraTerrentumEQR was French, but he was in fact American.

Is ContraTerrentumEQR descended from French immigrants?

I believe so, but fairly remotely is my impression.

This forum is becoming increasingly Protestant. This forum once was predominantly Catholic, but most Catholics have left the forum. DavidV, Sir Roman D, Aaron Traas and Windemere are the last Catholics, who are active members of the forum. A lot of staunch Catholics, such as Jovan, ContraTerrentumEQR and Campeadorshin have sadly left the forum.
A new generation of members have joined the forum after I joined the forum. None of the new members of the forum are Catholics. Murtagon is an Orthodox Christian, In Vino Veritas is a Lutheran and Matthew J Taylor is a Calvinist.

That may not be a bad thing since route to monarchism is easy for Catholicism and Orthodoxy but alas, perhaps due to the massacre of the Hugenots, the Biblical truths of monarchism do not have a close connection to protestantism (with the obvious exception of Anglicanism).
If this forum could help bring more Prots into realising their place under their rightful thrones, it will achieve a great thing.

I'm not opposed to more Protestants joining the forum. I'm merely noticing a significant change to the religious atmosphere of the forum.
Lutheranism is traditionally staunchly monarchist. The Lutheran churches of Denmark, Norway and Sweden retains close ties to the monarchy. But Calvinism has a strong republican tradition. Cromwell was a Calvinist. Calvinism isn't entirely opposed to monarchism. The Dutch royal family is Calvinist.
No Nestorian Christian monarchy has ever existed, but the Nestorian Church was loyal to the Sassanid kings of Persia.

As of this post, the last post made on this forum other than me (azadi) was 16 hours ago.
I think that that is a poor omen for this site.
Do you guys want me to advertise this forum?

I think the issue is more that people aren't posting because there isn't much royal news coming out. I don't remember any real notable event this year outside of the ascension of Crown Prince Naruhito.

It's a shame that monarchist theory or plain conservatism doesnt provide enough conversation

As much as I am a fervent monarchist and am hesitant to mention it, but surely the monarchy has been in the news rather a lot lately.

It can but I just didn't see many threads I felt I could contribute to.
