Re: New website development and some forum closures

I've long thought the forums could use some consolidation to counteract the sense of vast, empty halls that has come with the drop in active users over the years, but to not have a general off topic board of any kind is practically asking anyone not a hardcore Chao fan to leave and for new members t...

Re: Favorite Sonic OTPs

My official opinion on SegaSonic is that all shipping is crack shipping. For other continuities, I do ship Sonic/Sally in SatAM/Archie and Knuckles/Julie-Sue in Archie since both are practically canon therein, as well as Tails/Cosmo in Sonic X. As for pairings I enjoy in fanfic and enjoyed in fanart...

Re: The Non-Hero Sonic Chao

To shed some light on the one character Chao of each alignment deal: The game stores a Chao's type(Egg, baby, each first evolution, etc.) as an Integer and uses a lookup table of sorts. Chao of the same stat type(run, swim, Chaos, etc.) but the different alignments are the next to each other in the ...

Re: Unpopular Opinions

Advance 2 was the best of the Advance Trilogy and among the best handheld Sonic platformers. Even if they revisited and perfected the Adventure Duology's formula, including the new and improved Chao Gardens hardcore Chao fans have wanted for more than a decade, Sonic Team should never make a game ti...

Re: Chao mobile game?

If Sega were to make new Chao Gardens, I'd agree a stand-alone Chao Raising game for Android and iOS would make a lot of sense in the current market. As for fangames, technically, all fangames could be considered as infringing on copyright, but since it is up to the copyright holder to prosecute vio...

Re: Should the forums be more child friendly?

I think it worth noting that child friendly can vary drastically depending on whose standards we're talking about.

Probable spoilers ahead.

That to truly master death...

Re: i forgot, is 2018 going to be ten years since this forum has existed like this?

For what its worth, the forum lists Mooncow's join date as being way back in 2005. Granted, there's no telling what form the forums took back then, and for all I know, its trivial for the admin to spoof their own join date.
