1760 AD - John Joseph Merlin created the first known roller skates, which consisted of a small row of metal inline wheels. In the following centuries this spawned an entire way of life centered around the joy of skating. All types of skating offer a challenge of personal skill development, enduring community, and the freedom of riding with wheels beneath our feet. Today hundreds of millions of people skate and find commonality in their love for skating - all types of skating (Inline Skating, Rollerskating, Skateboarding, and other styles). Though we all share similar love for skating we all feel very strongly about our specific passion and niche in the skating world - easily understanding the love others hold for their specific niche. Considering the increased use of emoji's in modern communications, and seeing a number of very specific emojis, (even duplicates for several sports)...let's show that there is plenty of support for an inline skate emoji as part of Unicode's standard emoji set. A Skate Board emoji has been included! A Roller Skate emoji has been included! We'd all love to see an Inline Skate Emoji Soon!

(Formal Proposal for inclusion of an inline skate emoji has been submitted on 03/21/20 to Unicode.org. The support demonstrated by this petition will be specifically referenced to help demonstrate the need for an inline skate emoji.)
