    Who all is joining the party on FSU? :D Tell us your SF username so we can identify you. Hope you are enjoying FSU, if you haven't come here before!

    I was vesperholly on SF. :cool:

    Well, I'm not really joining as such, as I've been reading both forums for about five years, although I don't post much. I went to Skating Forums for the adult skating community, and come to FSU for the elite skating news, so it was kind of like they had different purposes. Would be happy to see more skaters posting in this section, but I think a lot of the Skating Forums members will be migrating to the replacement forum that has now been set up. Will still be reading both.

    I'm Bunny Hop on all the various skating boards I read.

    Yeah, I remember when FSW went under/got bought/was destroyed, and how sad I was. It's hard, to lose your main forum.

    The replacement forum is skatingforums2.com. It's exactly the same as the old forum. Please come sign up!! We already have lots of posts going.
    All of our members are spreading out instead of channeling to the new forum, and FSU just doesn't have a big on ice forum :(

    Happy to be a skatingforums refuge!

    FSU is good but am glad for the "new" board for the old members. Kind of comforting in a way...

    Although I haven't participated in the "Parlor" (parlour?") I am curious as to where it is currently housed, so to speak...

    I go out of town for 2 weeks and skatingforums disappears?! noooo! Where did it go? I love FSU, but the two boards seemed to serve different purposes. Will check out the skatingforums2 site. I'm excited to see this part of FSU grow, though!

    skatingforums2 is pretty much skatingforums. They are even importing in old threads.

    Yes, so many people still wanted access to the tech info, that a great effort was made to save and restore it.

    I've been a luker here for a long time but, FSU and skatingforums are my two favorite skating forums. When it was announced skatingforums would be closing in two days I thought for a while and just couldn't let it go. So, I registered skatingforums2 and we continued. The skatingforums link was redirecting until this morning but it is in limbo during the domain transfer. Next week it will all be skatingforums.com again.

    I hope both keep going because they each bring unique things to our sport that are really needed and appreciated.

    Hi! I'm drskater from SF (still the same drskater at the old Sf new site) and am new to FSU! Looking forward to participating more in this forum. It's a little scary to start somewhere new--it took me a year to work up the nerve to post at SF.

    I was je at skatingforums (and will be again). I rarely post, but am a faithful out-of-date lurker at skatingforums. Less so here--so many posts, so little time.

    :lynch: I may throw my sarcastic comments on this board from time to time! I tend to comment more like a Devil's Advocate and pain in the @$$ combined!

    Skating 5 times a week right now...why?

    I used to be LoopLoop at skatingforums, but haven't really been there in a couple of years. This has been my main skating hangout for a while now...

    I haven't been able to get on all day- since early this morning.

    I visit this forum quite a bit, but today really made me realize how much I "need" SF!
