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 Always have skates put on.

Serious skaters may have skates on their feet more than without ones. Can go almost anywhere with skates on their feet, even forgot to take off the skates before sleeping. Waking up while half dreaming moving on skates without even falling. Prefer to cover the wheels instead of change with regular shoes.

I'm going with the Supreme Courts version:

I may not be able to define a serious skater, but I will know one when I see it...

OR :-)

Any skater that has had a crash, continued skating and only HOURS later learned there were broken bones involved.

That one I actually had happen. Was skating a public session, swerved to avoid someone that cut in front of me, panicked and turned around backwards to go up on my toe-stops (I was on my inline speed skates at the time) and crashed into a wall at almost full speed leading with my wrist. :-/ But kept skating afterwards. 4 hours later I'm home in bed and my wrist is THROBBING. Went to emergency and learned I had broken a bone...a small bone but a break none the less

Skating vert is like being bi-polar. When you are "up" there is nothing like it in the world....but eventually you are going to crash back down.

I think that any skater that feels skate is their avocation. When they aren't on skates they wish they were and when they are they wish it wouldn't end.
