*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

FROM SKATELOG FORUM HOST KATHIE FRY IN MARCH OF 2020:
This announcement is to let everyone know that after hosting the SkateLog Forum and its predecessors for nearly 20 years, I have decided it is time to permanently turn the forum over to a new owner and administrator. I cannot think of anyone more suitable to take on that role than my SkateLog forum co-host, Florida skater Jessica Wright. I am pleased to announce that Jessica has agreed to establish and host a brand new skating forum, configured like the SkateLog Forum, but with a new name and a new Web Site. This new forum is 100% owned and operated by Jessica.

NEW FORUM NAME: SkateDebate Forum
NEW WEB SITE: SkateDebate.com
NEW OWNER AND ADMINISTRATOR: Jessica Wright

Default A Young Person Room/Sub Forum

Hi Kathie, Others,

We spent a good time discussing a Seniors (over 40 or over 50) sub forum yet I wonder if we shouldn't have a Kiddies Room to allow for the reckless, free spirited, no consequences banter that occurs within that age group.

I think that this would have to be excluded from general access and it would have to be managed to protect the safety of the younger skaters.

Anyway that's the idea. Keep them skating, bantering, growing, and safe.

Yours in Skating, Life, MA/NY Skating Dave

Gee Dave, considering the way that one turned out, do you really think that's a good idea?

The folks under 18 here seem to behave themselves pretty well. They skate a lot, build rails, post photos, all that cool stuff. I don't see a need to segregate them.

The thing is, the different kinds of word play and co-abuse that happens in this age group that most older people don't remember unless they skate with the young as I do regularly. It does have to be managed to be a safe place.

As we have discussed that >40 or >50 sub forum idea might still have value yet I am still wondering how to get common forum value from those skaters our and my age. Maybe we need a >70 or maybe >68 sub forum. I mean at some age we are finally winding down.
