  • Hello Josiahblaze. Rather than trying to revert your edits with a small synopsis regarding your edit on Sonic the Hedgehog 3, I wish to talk with you regarding this matter so that we do not have an edit-war.

    You said that you are following the format was was existing on Sonic 1, Sonic 2 and Sonic CD and because it had not been bothering anyone. Believe it or not, but I am following the same form or argumentation here, except I am using Sonic Advance, Sonic Advance 2. Tails Adventure and Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (8-bit) as the cores of my arguments; I am following these examples because no one seems to be bothered by them, and these examples have since expanded to Sonic Mania and Sonic Forces as well.

    I admit that I have seen those templates you use before. However, I consider those listings on the Advance titles to be superior, mainly because of how little they tell about them. True, it seems to make little sense here, but to me it makes it easier to manage the articles. It is mainly because making two sections with the same subjects (this here being the Badniks' movement patterns) means having the same information in two places at once. That means that if a change has to be made in the movement patterns, then that means it has to be changed on both the game article and the Badnik article, which means double the work and double the management. The way I see it, by listing the enemies by only names, we keep information about them in one place that people can look up to get the details. That makes it easier to manage.

    In the same way, it also helps future-proofing the format for other articles. For 3D games like Sonic Unleashed and Sonic Heroes, the enemies have much more elaborate movement patterns. If we should list them in tables like you do, it would make the descriptions way too long, and any change has to be carried over to the main article as well, which again means double the work and management. In short, the table would not work very well with more complex enemies. However, a simple listing of them is easy to interpret. And to maintain consistency between between the articles, that means every game that has enemies must follow that formula.

    That is my viewpoint.

    • Don't apologize. This it's my fault for not accepting this sooner. You have the most edits of anyone on here, so you know what you're doing.

      I do have on question, though: Sonic 1, 2 and 3, ect pages feature a wiki box describing Sonic's (and other playable characters) abilities, with a sprite of them preforming said abilities sitting beside.I just want to clarify if this is needed, as I might want to add similar boxes to games lacking them.

    • Well, I think a Wikibox for character movements is needed for handheld and the old console games. However, they are not entirely the same in terms of layout on all articles. You can see them on those you mentioned and those I mentioned. The one on Sonic Advance for example combines all characters into a single box.

  • Guess who's back mate?

  • Is there anything I can do to help you and Mystic Monkey to let others know that you shouldn't post something that's nor related to Sonic?

    • Just inform anybody that posts unrelated fanart that it should only be posted in userspace, not discussions.

      Also, I appreciate your willingness to help. Keep up the good work.

    • Understood. I'll do whatever I can.

  • I can't think of any ideas with the project. You have been great helping people with it and contributing. Do you have any ideas on getting more people to help or organizing the people who are already contributing?

    • Hmm... We could make a badge that's earned for making a certain amount of edits on SU articles. That might encourage people to help. Or is that just a bad idea?

      I'll continue thinking, and notify you if any idea comes up.

    • Hello SilverPlays and Josiahblaze! I hope I can help! I asked DeCool if I could invite users from my own wiki to SNN to help out on some stuff. He said I could so I hope that I can get some of them to help out. That aside, I will also be trying my best to help XD

  • Do you think Lisa Ortiz will reprise her role. or will it be someone else?  Because Ben Schwartz never voiced Sonic before the movie.

  • Hi Josiah. I'm having a really tough time on SNN right now. As you can see, it shows me as one of the 'top editors of the week', but that's not really because I've been editing lots of different pages. Lately, I've been editing SU transcripts, but every time I click edit, it allows me to edit for few seconds, but after that it displays text on my screen saying 'Editing is unabled'. I don't know if this happens to anyone else, but this not only is making the Sonic Underground scripts take so long to get finished, but it is adding to my edits and making my contributions page look absurd. I know there's probably no way you can fix this, but is there any way I can be removed from 'top editors of the week'? This is the true story, I just don't want any of the administrators to get suspicious of me editing few letters at a time. Please share this with them, and get back to me if you can. Sorry if I disturbed you.

    • I haven't had that issue, but I'll try to help.

      When editing a transcript, after your first edit, mark all your future edits on it as "Minor" minor edits do not count towards your editcount, so upon finishing the transcript, your editcount will be up only by one, like it should be.

        Loading editor
    • I just tested it on my sandbox, and it still counts as an edit normally when doing that - both for your normal editcount, and weekly contributions on Special:Community.

    • Try writing the transcript in a writing program, such as Microsoft Word, then copy and paste the contents.

      As for the issue you're having, have you contacted Fandom staff about it?

        Loading editor
    • I've just contacted them right now, although I'm scared, because I'm a bit too young to be doing stuff like this. I might just take a break from SNN for a while because this is all getting a bit stressful. But honestly, I really appreciate all of you trying to help me, that's really generous of you.

  • I don't get why some people are post animes that are not Sonic related. That isn't allowed, right?

  • I finally clicked on 'Why do I like Bean the Dynamite'. LOL I thought it was funny and clever how you said, 'I wish I had more to say here but it really doesn't take much to explain why Bean is awesome'. I must say - That is a great way to write a description for your favorite character!

      Loading editor
    • Some things just don't need to be explained in length. Bean has always fascinated me. He's such an obscure character, but he shares a birthday with Sonic, we actually know who his uncle and father are, and contrary to popular belief, Bean is actually one of Sonic's friends. (His game counterpart, not his comic counterpart.)

        Loading editor
    • Yes. It's cool when family is included. I like Bean too but since I've played Sonic Triple Trouble all the way through, I quite like Fang. Sorry, lol I don't know why I associate these two characters with each other XD

        Loading editor
    • It's because in the comics, he and Nack were on a team. At this point, Bean is probably better known for his comic appearances anyway.
