Last week, we merged the topics from the Parents/Coaches/Judges forum into appropriate alternative forums.http://skatingforums.com/index.php?topic=3941.0
Skate/boot/blade discussions went to the "Pro Shop," rules and regulations went to "On The Boards" and skating skill topics went to "On Ice-Skaters."
The original skatingforums.com message board had a Parents forum separate from the Skaters forum, but it doesn't seem to be necessary with our current active membership. It was isolating and labeling members in addition to creating duplicate topics that were redundant.
Just a note: the Coaches' Lounge is still active. If any of our coaching or judging members do not have access, please send me a PM.
