    Hi all! I've been a "member" here for several years, but haven't posted for a very long time. I just got into the habit of using SkatingForums instead -- not because it was better, obviously, just habit I guess. And I'm enough of an online addict that supporting 2 forums was not going to be healthy for me.

    Anyway, with SkatingForums shutting down (insert very very sad emoticon here), I expect I'll be here more often from now on. I'm sure I'll be welcome. Um, right?

    Most of us came here from afar, at one time or another.

    Welcome home.

    I'm here - in fact, I think I've been on FSU about as long as I was on SkatingForums. We should try to check in on this thread at first, so we know who all is here. My name is the same here as it was on the other forum.

    SkatingForums is shutting down? Bummer. I haven't been active there in years - except for adult skating related threads. Moves in the Field is pretty slow here, and I expect that's where the SkatingForums bunch would land.

    Jayar - be nice. :p

    Why didn't you tell me that? You want me to lift it? Promise to behave? (Yeah, sure!)

    Ooooo - you're an IMPORTED banned user. How continental!
    (I have no idea what that means, it must have be an automated process.)

    Hi Skatingforums folks :) I'm the same Skittl1321 that was over there too. (I've seen a Skittl1312 once on another board. That was creepy)

    There's a rollerblading enthusiast in NYC with my "name." He owns the domain, though, and a few of the popular email sites' IDs. I always have to think about which ones I hold and which ones he (yes, "he") controls or else I try to hack his accounts by mistake, lol.

    I'm the same on here as I am/was on skatingforums. I haven't really posted here as I was so connected and comfortable on skatingforums. Hopefully I can find a home here as well :)

    There's pretty much something for everybody. Only advice: keep a healthy sense of humor.

    You are all very welcome, but do me a favour. If you want to bitch about this place before coming here, then do it privately eh? Just been over to Skating Forums for a look and am a little :rolleyes:. Nobody is forcing you ok? Or to pay (This forum is free) I'd rather people post here cos they enjoy it than feel forced.

    And as for Jayar, he's been on skating forums longer than me! Incl the old FSW so please take his comments the way they are intended rather than cry all over SF that some nasty person on F$U (lol) told you to suck it.

    Then we'll be fine :)

    That's because you like :EVILLE:. You know you do.

    Excuse me, but if a fragile, delicate flower like myself can thrive here, I think anyone can. :drama:

    choke, cough, choke, cough. Must not read FSU while drinking diet coke. You never know what will be :eek:

    :p FSU takes a little getting used to, but it is a lot of fun and worth every penny of the supporter status.

    Wait wait wait!!! Are you saying Skating Forums is the former FSW? :wideeyes: for some reason I always thought of FSU as the old FSW...maybe because most of the people I knew there came here. :lol:

    First there was FSW. Then there was FSWu, followed by FSU. They were both up and running for quite a while.

    Then FSW shut down and most people from FSW migrated here.

    Then Adrian started Skatingforums for some of the people who missed FSW.

    That's the very short and simple version.
