    Post GS Updates as of 3/7/13

    Hey folks!

    Just a few changes and updates!

    Golden Skate will not be providing anymore features or event coverage at this time due to company restructuring. This could take several months or longer, however, we will keep you notified of any updates. You can still access previous articles using the "archives" link on the main page.

    In the meantime, we are putting more focus on our growing forums. Here are a few of the updates.


    • We recently moved to a new and larger server after the site crashed twice due to traffic during the Four Continents
    • The main page of GS now reflects the major different parts of the forum so that you can see what's going on in one glance
    • Members can now create Polls


    There is more to come, so feel free to subscribe this thread if you want to be notified immediately.

    Cheers!

    This is very disappointing; the coverage and articles were something that set GS apart and added a lot of interest to the site. I discovered GS years ago via the articles, and I've enjoyed many of them since, especially the ones about lesser known skaters. The articles have been a valuable resource and it's unfortunate that this won't really be a part of GS in the foreseeable future.

    We appreciate any and all feedback, however, this is not a "permanent" change as mentioned above GS is a privately-owned entity with limited resources and has been a "labor of love" for 14 years. Running a "news service" carries a great deal of responsibility, planning, budgeting, and resources, so we must make changes as necessary.

    Thanks so much for your support and understanding as we move forward!
