    How'd you find Golden Skate?

    How did everyone find Golden Skate? The new forum has been around for about a week now, and it seems as though there are a lot of new folks here. I think it's wonderful - new opinions/ideas are great - but how did it happen so quickly? Why didn't you post on the ezboard version of Golden Skate? Just curious.

    Well, I've been reading the Golden Skate since it was at the old about.com page. (How many years ago was that now? ). So, there are some people's thoughts that I've been reading for along time now. I didn't actually register until the old ezboard, because you had to be registered to be able to mark forums read. I was too lazy to click on each forum to decide whether anything had been posted since the last time I visited. I finally started posting about 6 months ago, because the "Word Association" thread was a lot of fun. Now I'm past the 50 post mark and have even chosen an avatar! :D I mostly lurk but post upon occassion!

    I found Golden Skate, originally because of the Newsletter and Contests. I am an avid reader of the articles and newsletters, but I am an active messageboard poster. I didn't post on the GS ezboard very much, but I checked in for new news, and posted updates about my fav skaters sometimes. I recieved an email that this new forum was being started, and I decided to join and post around. Usually during the school year I am very busy with my classes. I hardly find time to watch my own board, let alone post. But right now, since I have the extra time, I am enjoying the privalige of checking out other forums. I hope that I can manage time once classes begin tho, becase I am having fun!

    I started at the old about.com board. I found it just before Paula moved to ezboard. I don't recall my 1st post, but it's been fun ever since.

    I also started at about.com (although, mostly as a lurker). It seemed as though most people from about.com went to the ezboard. People have come and gone since then; however, it seems like there are already a lot of new people on this board. The fact that it happened so quickly surprised me. Don't get me wrong, I think it's great, but I was just wondering how it happened so quickly? Where were they before? Maybe I'm making things up

    How'd you find Golden Skate?

    Actually, it was called About.com figure skating when I stumbled onto it. It was merely by accident. I was looking up sites about my favorite sport of figure skating when I saw this site that featured articles about the fs world and then I started to read the posts - just out of curiosity. I registered to answer a question about a piece of music Michelle Kwan was skating to at the time and I ended up hanging around. I had intended to "bow out" at some point, but here I am still!

    I found the old GS on one of the links from Yahoo Sports Coverage.

    I'm another one who found the about site and have hung around ever since.

    Reason? Because the Golden Skate posters are the nicest and the site least acrimonious and least biased. Makes reading the posts much more enjoyable without name calling and continuous harping for or against certain skaters. We can all benefit from that. Thank you, Paula!
