*** The SkateLog Forum Has Been Replaced by SkateDebate Dot Com ***

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

Which threads in the SkateLog Roller Derby Forum would you recommend to be included in a list of the most interesting, useful, or significant discussions in that forum? I started by nominating a few threads and I will add more to this list as you guys recommend them:

Tell Us About Your Roller Derby Team

Show Us Your Roller Derby Uniform

Refs in Roller Derby

build a derby skate by price range.
But we do need to do some updating I think. That was such a helpful post when I first got back into skating.
Just a thought.

Default Uniform

Show us your roller derby uniform....a good roller derby uniform is hard to find. I know I just spent the last 2 months coming up with one for my league. Finally got a custom one made at www.ciscoathletic.com.

Can you sticky the Customizing/Painting your skates thread? IT has some great links and useful information.

Picking a derby name and how to see if it's taken (link to the international roster) should be a link. I'm head of recruiting for our league, and every year I get more emails from fresh meat about their skater names than anything else.
