I fixed an incorrect date and someone reverted the edit, thus putting back the wrong date.

I know we're all ipod friendly and everything, but do you guys have a plug for my zune?

Well, I don't know what "disssapwer" means, but they keep getting removed because they're unnecessary. Myself 123 13:41, September 27, 2017 (UTC)

Incorrect issue number

Hi! I just noticed that the main page says that it's linking to the fourth issue of the IDW Comics, while the link, image, and description are for the fifth issue. Could someone change the text "IDW Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 4" on the main page to "IDW Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 5"? Thanks in advance if someone fixes this! Wikikinetic (talk) 21:18, May 30, 2018 (UTC)

Thanks for fixing this, Ultrasonic9000! Wikikinetic (talk) 21:41, May 30, 2018 (UTC)

Dead Link

Someone deleted the TV Shows category, and thus, the "more..." in TV Shows is a dead link. Shy enough? (talk) 20:15, June 27, 2018 (UTC)

Fixed. Thank you for pointing it out. SilverPlays97 (Wall) (Contributions) 21:17, June 27, 2018 (UTC)

Incorrect issue numbers (2)

Hi! I just noticed that the main page says that it's linking to the fifth issue of the IDW Comics and the sixth issue of the same, while the link, image, and description are for Issue 6 and Issue 7, respectively. Could someone change the text "IDW Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 5" and "IDW Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 6" on the main page to "IDW Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 6" and "IDW Sonic the Hedgehog Issue 7", respectively? Thanks in advance if someone fixes this! Wikikinetic (talk) 23:31, June 28, 2018 (UTC)

I don’t know why I keep forgetting that. Anyway, it’s done. DeCool99 (talk) 23:36, June 28, 2018 (UTC)
Thanks for fixing it! Wikikinetic (talk) 23:37, June 28, 2018 (UTC)

List of pages that may have Sonic Retro content

These pages have Sonic Retro listed in the "External Links", are linked in the talk page, or where referenced as a source outside of the (main) space. This is NOT a list of articles confirmed to have SR-copied content.

To find out if a page has copied SR content, compare the SR page to the SNN page and look to see if any written sections are very similar or identical. If you find one, completely rewrite it. If you can not rewrite it in one sitting, leave the cleanup or rewrite template and bold the link here. Once you are done removing any copied SR content from the page, put at <s> through the page listed here. If no copied SR content was found, just remove the page from the list.

Please note images from SR are allowed, but it should be noted they came from SR in the image page. If you are unsure if an image is used fairly, contact an active admin.

It is important we go through this list. This must be done so the wiki can live up to it's own standards. SilverPlays97 (Wall) (Contributions) 15:01, January 8, 2019 (UTC)

I wondering if I'm doing any of these correctly? So at the moment, I've worked on the Deem Bristow and Sonic Ride articles. So for Deem, I rewrote some of the content, and added a note on its image page about it being taken from SR, but I'm not sure if it really is a "free license" or whether I should change that. As for Sonic Ride, where a section was copied from SR, I just added the rewrite template in and left the content on there. The OP doesn't say whether the copied content should be removed immediately or not after adding a template. Kettlon (talk) 18:13, January 8, 2019 (UTC)

Sidebar not showing correctly

The side bar that is supposed to be on the right side of the page is now at the bottom. Can someone find out what's wrong? SilverPlays97 (Wall) (Contributions) 15:38, March 17, 2019 (UTC)

The format hasn't been edited. I'm not sure what's going on there. DeCool99 (talk) 16:38, March 17, 2019 (UTC)
Are you using this script to make pages "widescreen"? (Note that the expand content part is a button) ~Vera (Message me) 17:09, March 17, 2019 (UTC) 
 I don't have this expand content thing. Can we fix this issue quick?
Update: it only happens on the home page, not everything else. Blazerun19 (talk) 20:43, March 19, 2019 (UTC)
Could you post some kind of example of where it's happening? Does it only show up on normal articles, does it show up on all wiki pages with any kind of sidebar (like userpages too), etc? If the exact issue is shown, it would be a lot easier to try and figure out what it is.

EDIT: I fixed it, some tags got accidentally removed from one of the templates on there. ~Vera (Message me) 20:45, March 19, 2019 (UTC)


Comic link error.

Instead of leading to the 16th issue, the news and updates link leads to the 2019 annual. Blazerun19 (talk) 22:52, May 8, 2019 (UTC)

Expand error

Disambiguations appear in the “expand these articles” section of the wiki. Sonicfan200530 (talk) 17:34, May 28, 2019 (UTC)

Sonic 2 Beta Elements

The Sonic the Hedgehog 2 beta elements page just redirects to Sonic the Hedgehog 2 (Simon Wai prototype) even though there’s more to it than that. Could someone possibly fix it? Sonicfan200530 (talk) 22:28, June 17, 2019 (UTC)

IDW Link

The IDW publicing link (if that's what it's called)at news and updates gets you to issue 16 instead of 17. Even though issue 17 came out a month ago and it displays issue 17's image (sorry for my bad English) 

BlueStriker05 (talk) 13:08, June 20, 2019 (UTC)BlueStriker05

Should be fixed now. DECOOL! (talk) 21:13, June 20, 2019 (UTC)

Wrong link

The main page's news and updates link to IDW issue 16 instead of 17.

Who will update image facts?

Who was regularly updating « Image facts » before becoming much less active? That image from Archie Comics wasn’t changed since several months. Will someone else do this? Blazerun19 (talk) 22:03, July 6, 2019 (UTC)

New game header error

In the 3D platformer section, there is the racing game Sonic Forces: Speed Battle instead of the actual 3d one. Blazerun19 (talk) 13:58, August 29, 2019 (UTC)

It needs more than that, the mobile games needs to be sorted under a separate list. But, it is done.
Consider conveying issues regarding the header in this talkpage from now on.--Luma.dash (talk) 15:12, August 29, 2019 (UTC)

No news about Tangle the Lemur being in Sonic Dash?

Why isn't the main page updated so that it says that Tangle appeared in Sonic Dash? Blazerun19 (talk) 22:00, July 4, 2020 (UTC)

Is Sega actually going to improve Sonic Mania 2?

Some people think that Sonic Mania 2 will be coming, I’m only asking to see if it is a rumor, or it is real.

Well, first off, talk pages are not for general discussion. They are for suggesting improvements to their main article. For instance, if I wanted to add a huge picture of Bean to the main page (this is a pretty ridiculous example) I would suggest it here. Second off, Sonic Mania 2 is only a rumor at the moment, with no confirmation whatsoever from Sega.Josiahblazesig.png 21:47, 12 February 2021 (UTC)
