Trivia Pages

ok, heres a strange idea that i've come up with. i've seen a few users who have rants about the characters' trivia getting erased. and we tell them to stop, because we dont need the trivia filling up the whole character page, right? well why don't we make a seperate page for each characters' trivia (exept with the characters who dont have much trivia to begin with)? we just leave some trivia on the character's page, then give a link to the trivia page to see more. any agreements or objections?Midnight Wolf Don't be hatin'! 23:58, November 29, 2009 (UTC)

That might be a bit of a problem, because we would have to create a bigger list of links on Mainspace, and I don't think that there is really too much trivia to begin with. I think that the Articles should stay as they are because the amount of trivia that each article has isn't too great.... Genesjs 00:01, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

well, even before i signed up here, there was tons of unique trivia, but it did take up the whole page. i'm just saying, lets let the others decideMidnight Wolf Don't be hatin'! 00:04, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

I hardly gave your idea any thought when I first saw it (Because I was in a hurry to write an opinion down, and I was trying to see if what problems might arise if we made seperate pages. I'm sorry I didn't think about your idea long enough to see it's benefits the first time....-_-'), so I thought about your idea some more, and I think that creating seperate pages for each characters' trivia might actually be a good idea, because it would actually be easier to keep track and manage the information placed in each characters' trivia. If seperate pages for characters' trivia are created, it would allow the characters' normal pages to have more free space, so more non-trivial information about the characters can be written in them. This would allow both users and visiters can have access to additional information about the characters they wish to view on the Wiki. I am going to say "yes" to your suggestion, Sunny.

Chaos from Sonic Adventure in Sonic X-treme?!

Ok I found some cool info here it is-

for more info look at http://info.sonicretro.org/Sonic_X-treme_storylines

Chaos & the DoomVirus

For thousands of years the "ChaosDoom," or Element Legion lay trapped, suspended in a state of lonely silence within the Master Chaos Emerald, watching seasons in the outside worlds come and go, generations birth and die.

Dr. Ivo Robotnik, convinced there was some ultimate power within, succeeded in breaking the Emerald, providing a long-awaited exit for the ChaosDoom. No longer trapped, they waste no time in spreading their evil throughout Mobius and its surrounding dimensions.

Initially (and in this game) though, all that takes affect is the DoomVirus, the poisonous atmosphere suitable only for the ChaosDoom. Any living creature coming in contact with the atmospheric rays of the broken Master Emerald fall into sickness, and eventually wither sway- Unless the Cure is found in time.

Robots and creatures made of Metal, Stone or Wood are controlled by and serve as initial hosts for the ChaosDoom. Even Robotnik's Boss Robots do their bidding. All of these machines are bent on destroying Sonic, for he alone poses a threat to ChaosDoom.

ChaosDoom's main problem is that in order to fully escape the clutches of the Master Chaos Emerald, they need TIME. Not a subscription to the magazine, but maybe a year to fully develop outside of their "egg."

To the ChaosDoom, the longer Sonic can be delayed or even eliminated the more time they have to develop. Protecting the Acts with robots and the Cure Items with big, huge and nasty Bosses will hopefully accomplish this.--S_U_F 19:05, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

Upcoming Products

Can somebaody update are Upcoming Products Comic list now cause you're only showing Comics 203#-206# and Universe #7-#9. So now i think it should show Sonic the Hedgehog issues 207#-209# & Sonic Universe 10#-13# asits Upcoming Comics of Now.

GACF checking in 12/12/09

Hey guys. I haven't been here in a while. It wouldn't let me log in for some reason. Oh well. Hey, guess what. In about three or four years, you guys might have some competition. I just recently upgraded to a full wiki site. It's called "Galactic Alliance Classified Files: The Federation Encyclopedia". I finally figured out how to upgrade to a separate wiki. Scratchpad seemed a little amateur-ish after almost a whole year. I'm trying to transfer everything from my scratchpad wiki to the federation encyclopedia. Last night I transferred three articles and I'm getting on now to do some more as well. Check it out sometime at [1] federationencyclopedia.wikia.com. Hellspawn Shadow is the featured image at the home page as of now. The image is given credit to Fission07 on Deviant Art. I'd like to see you there. Most of it, believe it or not, is about Sonic the Hedgehog, if you don't already know. C-Dawg Pound 20:49, February 5, 2010 (UTC)

User safety

Due to a sudden increase of vandals occuring on this Wiki, I have begun to question whether or not some jerk on the web is leading all of these troublemakers here. One incident of vandalism, in particular, involves one someone vandalising A certain User's User page by changing a comment that User has made into something extremely inappropriate and insulting, and when I saw the edit that jerk has made to this other User's User page, I literally snapped and gave this guy a peice of my mind. So after this incident was taken care of, I have begun to form some theories as to why this User has been attacked by these vandals more than anyone else recently, and I have come up with a theory as to why this has been happening recently. I think that the list of Featured Users that can be accessed in the white box at the very top of the upper left corner of each web page on this Wiki is one of the possible causes. Having a list of Featured Users available to anyone, User or not, could be giving these vandals a list of targets (Users) to attack when they decide to join the SNN. Having Featured User interviews posted the the SNN' home page might have something to do with it to, because all a person would have to do is simply scroll down the page and they will see any interviews of any Users posted there, and the vandals can use them to find out more about that person, so they could be tempted to go attack that person first before they do the other Users. So in other words, I think that the reason that we have had our User pages tampered with a lot by vandals recently is because we are basically putting ourselves up for target practice by posted our Featured User interviews on here and putting a link to a list of Featured Users at the upper left corner (at the very top) of every single web page that we have here, you can see the tag "Featured Users" with an arrow pointing to the right right next to it, you can't really miss it (It's below the search window). Anyway, I can up with a few ideas, but here's one of them: Why don't we move our Featured User's interviews to a more secure location on another page that I, myself, would create, and this Wiki would only be accessible to ong time members of the SNN, or Users from other Wikis that gain our trust, and put all our future Featured User interviews there? That way, no future vandalizers would be able to get information about our Featured Users before they join our Wiki, and they would have trouble picking out what they believe would be a first good target (Users. In other words, us). Making the list of Featured User available to Users only might help too, because the list can be easily accessed from the little white box that has the search window in it (again, it's at the upper left corner of the home page, all the way at the top. It's the white box that stands against the blur background of this Wiki), and having that list available only to Users will make anyone that isn't a User and only wants to join our Wiki to cause us trouble will have that much a harder time figuring out who they should attack first. Doing this might help our protection from vandalizers increase dramatically, if not just a little bit. I know that we can undo any edits that vandals make to our User pages, but I think that everyone would agree with me that we all want to protect our User pages from vandalizers at almost any cost, and I think that doing these things might help protect us, even if it only keep the level of vandals to our User pages to a minimum. Besides, like I just said, the sudden increase in the appearance of vandalizers has me worried... Anyway, that's one of my ideas on what we could do to improve User safety around here (I think, but that's why I wanted to have this dicussion with all of you, so we can figure out something that might work). As I said, I have already thought up a few more ideas, but I want to hear a few your opinions about this issue first, before I suggest them. Anyway, if any of you agree with my idea, then please comment. If not, then could some of you please find some way to take some time out of your schedules and discuss this issue with me and tell me what you think we could, or should do to help improve User safety on here in some other way that might possibly work? Please comment, I really want us to be safe from all the jerks on the web, and I want to find some way to stop those people from vandalizing our User pages too. I'm open to any of your ideas, but please try to think about this issue carefully before you say anything, because I think that this is something serious, and we all need to really think about our ideas and comments before we mention them. Anyway, any comments? Genesjs 02:54, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

you've got a point, but we dont need to create a whole Wiki for it. we just need to make a super secret page (that i guess aint so secret now), that only long time users know aboutMidnight Wolf Don't be hatin'! 02:54, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Well, I don't think this would be neccessary. No matter what a vandal does, it can be undone just as easily, and the vandal banned.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 02:56, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Okay, then let me change the "Wiki" thing into a "page" then, because I was more or less talking about something like that anyway ^_^' Genesjs 02:57, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I think what we really need is to figure out how many new users there are on the Wiki, so each of us can keep an eye one a specific user and see the edits they do. And also, I'd like to point something out: Just yesterday, Another fellow user had his userpage vandalised (he had one of his polls removed) by NNewt84, who has been banned for approx. one week. So, it's not just the admins, beaurecrats and rollbacks being targeted. It's certain users being randomly selected. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 03:12, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Guys, you're making too much out of this. Like I said, absolutely any damage done can be undone in a snap, and the vandal blocked just as easily. Really, what can a vandal do that can't be undone or deleted?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 03:22, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I see. Well, then we have to find a way to protect everyones User pages then. What if we all put locks on our User pages? That way, only we can edit them, and no one who isn't an admin or burecrat would be able to edit them; only we could edit our User pages. Genesjs 03:25, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Well, that might not be so perfect. There are a lot of user pages that would have to be locked, and what if a User had to use an IP address for some reason?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 03:27, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Why would they want to use an IP address? Genesjs 03:28, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Hey, you never know.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 03:36, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

IPs can be of use every now and then, you know. And also, what if we blocked a new user's userpage? Then they couldn't edit it at all! You gotta make a couple edits before you're no longer counted as a new user. In the past week, we've had to ban 3 vandals, and there's probably more on the way! I think Gen is right, some mastermind may be advertising SNN to neanderthals over the web. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 03:45, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, well there are a lot of users that might wanna mess with others. Chaotics Guy, Launchballer, Supremelifeform42; those are just the guys I've probably ticked off! Not to mention iLike. The point is, with every good User or IP that comes along, there are bound to be bad Users and IPs.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 03:52, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I think I might know where some of these guys are comming from. I remember seeing a comment on a certain video on YouTube. And in this persons comment, he/she mentions "Sonic Wikia". So I think that some of these people are coming from YouTube, or some other places, because i'm pretty sure that there is at least a few million people who hate Sonic, and would go out of their way to vandalize anything relating to Sonic that they might know about, which could include Wikis too. So yeah, it's very well possible that someone might be leading these people here and mentioning to them about us. Genesjs 03:53, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, but those same advertizements could be leading good Users here. Look, there's no way for us to completely stop vandalism from happening. The only thing we can do is keep an eye out for it and revert vandalism when we see it. Pure and simple.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 04:00, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, but i'm sure that a lot of good Users on here would want to keep vandalism from occuring on their User pages at all. So maybe we should just allow everyone to put locks on their User pages, allow Users to edit them themselves, without the fear of anyone tampering with their work or information. Genesjs 04:04, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I'd have to advise against locking up everyone's pages. Because only admins/beaurecrats can lock up pages. We can't lock them so that only registered users can edit them, because the last 3 vandals here were registered users! And, of course, we can't only lock them so that admins can edit. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 05:50, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

I have a few comments: first, my name is top of the feature user list on the top-left box and it has not led to my user page being vandalised. Second, if the featured user poll is not on the front page it becomes meaningless - it's to advertise the good work of our users and make the site feel more like a community. For that it needs to be highly visible. Third, if Sunny is being targeted for no reason this month, then the featured user item on the Main Page could well be connected. Fourth, Genesjs, I can protect your user page for you right now if you want, but then you wouldn't be able to edit it. There is no way to allow some users to edit while others cannot. -- Supermorff 20:24, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
In fact, I just agree with Kagimizu. Vandals can't do anything that can't be reverted. You can't protect all pages and you can't block all new users. The only viable measure is to revert vandalism as it occurs and block the offenders as appropriate. -- Supermorff 20:24, December 15, 2009 (UTC)

Well, it's been quite a while since anyone has discussed this issue so, if there is anything left to talk about, then I'll be open to any new suggestions that anyone might have, because I am oficially starting to run out of ideas.... I will listen to any ideas that you have in mind. Phoenix the Cat 05:18, January 4, 2010 (UTC)

Sonic Riders/Zero Grav Canon?

I've heard that most spin-off series aren't official. Is the Sonic Riders series canon to the main series? SEGA Fan BOSS 00:13, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

No, that game is a racing spin-off. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 00:52, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

How is it a spin-off?

Well, Sonic Riders had different gameplay from that of a typical Sonic game. It was just you controlling a character and racing to either the finish line or a certain number of laps. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 03:09, December 20, 2009 (UTC)

It is a spin-off, because of its vastly different gameplay, but I have seen nothing to suggest that it is not also canon. But then, canon is subjective, so it could be argued eitherway. -- Supermorff 17:00, December 21, 2009 (UTC)

Edit Pages

I don't like the new edit pages. I like how it looks, but it's so hard to make proper edits and respond to talk pages. When I have to go to the bottom, I have to scroll down manually instead of just clicking on where I want to go. Can you guys change it back? Sonic & Scrab Master

I have no idea what you mean. My edit pages haven't changed. Check your preferences, because there's probably a way to change back in there. -- Supermorff 14:03, January 15, 2010 (UTC)

Just thought I'd mention, we really need to start writing articles on all the various Sonic comics out there.--Shadow34 21:29, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Contributions, Quotes...

Something that just bugs me -- whenever I wanna add something bigger to the articles on here, a certain someone complains to me that I should consult everyone else here before doing those changes.
Now, one of the contributions in question is a more detailed description of character-roles in the games -- when I edited Sonic's article, aforementioned admin undid one of the longer edits because it was supposedly lengthening the article too much, which I find to be nonsense -- this is a wiki set to collect information about ALL things Sonic. I made a new section on this very talk-page asking whether my lengthy edits, that I put much work in, should be allowed to stay or not. I never ever got confirmation on the subject again.

As you can imagine, that put me off of editing for a while. Now I started something new, adding character-descriptive quotes of themselves or others to the character-articles, which "Kagimizu" sees as too big a change as well. What is up with that and will someone with decision-power at least respond to me this time? Quite frankly, it doesn't make one feel welcome if one is discouraged from adding material. Herman2000 06:55, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

All the edits you have described seem fine to me. Reverting your edit on Sonic's page seems like a mistake too, as the correct response would have been to separate extraneous material into a new page, not delete it outright. -- Supermorff 13:07, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
So, let me get this straight… if I was to describe the doings of the characters in the stories in more vibrant detail, it would either stay, be discussed and/or moved to a new article of it's own? I mean, that's just how I understand it. As for the quotes, I guess I can take that as a confirmation that I can keep working there… now I just need to grab my sources-bag again and we're good, I suppose. Herman2000 19:13, February 10, 2010 (UTC)
I cannot say what will happen, just that this is what should happen. But fair warning to you (and anyone else): keep your story detail factual and encyclopedic, particularly regarding interactions between characters. The wiki is not a place to retell the story, only to document the story. -- Supermorff 10:40, February 11, 2010 (UTC)

Non-Sonic Character Articles

Alright, I'm tired of this. It was previously decided that all non-Sonic characters who have appeared in only one game would not get an article here until they appeared in another game. Regardless of this ruling, certain Users have continued to create said articles. Normally, this would constitute a banning of said Users for repeatedly breaking the rules, despite getting continued warnings. ...However, in order to avoid making the same mistakes I feel certain admins on another wiki make, I am not going to ban anyone. Instead, I want to bring this issue up to all of the Users here on the Sonic News Network once again, and let you decide on the matter. As an admin, I am not a leader or law-maker of this wiki. Rather, I am merely one of the people who carry out what the majority of the Users feel needs to be done. Because of this, I want to hear what the Users of this wiki, regardless of postion, past, or reputation have to say on the matter of 1 time Non-Sonic character articles having a place on this wiki, so that I and the other admins may operate this wiki in a way that would be most satisfactory to the greatest amount of people here. I am not going to act on what I merely feel is best for the Users, but rather, I am asking you yourselves feel is best. To the rest of my fellow admins, I am sorry about bringing this up so suddenly, but this an issue that has been around for quite some time now, and I feel needs to be discussed with the Users of this wiki. So, I am asking you all what you think on the matter of having articles for non-Sonic characters, who have appeared in only one Sonic-related game. However, I am going to make this very clear: anyone who creates such an article before this issue is resolved will be banned, and the article will be deleted until a decision is reached. Now, let's get started.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 19:19, March 11, 2010 (UTC)


well said Kagi. Here is where I stand. My opinion: non-Sonic characters who are not playable such as King Boo and Dry Bowser and Master Hand should not have their own articles. But I think characters who are playable in Sonic games are entitled to their own articles such as the SEGA guest stars and the Mario characters. I think being playable along side sonic should count for something. And if agreed by users and admins, I will gladly take full responsibility in the construction and upkeep of articles for all the All-Stars Racing characters, Olympic Games characters, Smash Bros. Brawl characters and any other cross over titles Sonic appears in. Sonictoast 19:42, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

@Sonictoast: You're not getting any arguements from me. I agree with you completely. Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 19:47, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

Well, SSBB characters are a bit of a side-issue here, on account that while Sonic was present in that game, it was not actually a Sonic game. In fact, the game was not even developed by SEGA at all.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 20:01, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

I do see what kagi is saying. I mean a Sonic Wiki really does not need an article for Lucas and Wolf O'Donnel, Maybe just the characters that have direct contact with Sonic, like Solid Snake and tabuu. But the Olympic characters and the All-Stars Racing characters I still believe should get articles. Sonictoast 22:34, March 11, 2010 (UTC)

Yes well, I'd like to get the opinion of the wiki on a larger scale. Currently I can count the number of Users involved in this discussion on one hand. That doesn't really reflect the majority opinion of the SNN, now does it?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 18:59, March 12, 2010 (UTC)

here's an idea. Let's vote. If you want to allow articles for non-Sonic characters who have only been playable in 1 game, sign your user name under "Yes". If you do not want to allow these articles, sign your name under "no". Let's say first to 10 votes wins? Sound like a plan?Sonictoast 14:59, March 16, 2010 (UTC)

My reason for voting "no" is that even though they have been playable in at least ONE Sonic game, that dosen't make it nessicary to include them on this Wiki. Maybe we could link them to other Wikis, like so --> Mario. But overall, some just aren't related to Sonic at all. -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 05:17, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

Well, this voting thing doesn't seem to be working. Another user started a new Bowser Jr. page today. I don't know how many users, have started a Bowser Jr. page just for it to be taken down. Here is what I now propose, A Character must be playable in at least two games with Sonic to get their own article, with only Bowser Jr. as an exception, so as to complete the roster of Olympic winter Games. Sonictoast 14:20, April 1, 2010 (UTC)

If we did it like that, then there'd still be Mario articles here, because there were two Mario & Sonic games, so that wouldn't change too much. Maybe, say, 4 games? -- Shelly the Hedgehog Amy to ShellyI'm not a monkey! 05:21, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

@ Shelly

4 is too many, the only ones I can think of who have 4 playable appearances with Sonic are Aiai and Ulala, and that's if you count SEGA Superstars where they don't even interact with Sonic. With just two characters theree would be no point for the non-sonic character category. Plus if your whole reason is to eliminate the Mario character articles, there is no point. SEGA has said they are going to continue the Mario and Sonic series, so there is going to be another game, thus the Mario characters will then have 4 games with Sonic. Plus we could already say the Mario characters have 5 games with Sonic if you count the DS versions seperately, they are very different Games from their Wii counterparts.Sonictoast 15:05, April 5, 2010 (UTC)

OK so what's the official ruling

2. 1 interaction and a link to a relative wiki

3. 2 interactions and a link to a relative wiki

Template:58SlugDrones!

Despite my rather ambivalent feelings towards these articles, it's clear that most people are in favour of keeping all characters that have appeared in 2 or more Sonic games. The case for more than 1 game is hazier, so I do not think that we should go down that route yet, but I would not be adverse to a second vote to determine this. That said, it seems clear that the Bowser Jr article will keep being made despite our rulings. Pragmatically, it may be simpler just to keep it. -- Supermorff 17:07, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

Characters with 2 or more appearances with Sonic can get their own article with the exception of Bowser Jr. It Sounds good, but we have to clarify. does a cameo count as an appearance? Like Reala is in Super Stars Tennis with Sonic, and makes cameos in Sonic Shuffle and Sonic Adventure, so does that count as 3 appearances, or do only playable appearances count? Sonictoast 17:38, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

I say 2 playable appearances if it were meBlazeRocks55 20:03, April 15, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, playable appearances are the only ones that should count, while cameos should be acknowledged in the article. As for keeping Bowser Jr, I say: "No exceptions". Regardless of how annoying it is, we shouldn't give in. As far as I'm concerned, it should be treated as any other Unused or Not-needed article, maybe even as spam (though that may be too far), and that anyone who creates the article should be told about this conversation and warned not to do it again, so that they will have to acknowledge the rules, and that further actions would be knowingly breaking the rules. When a person does that, it's simple what we do: ban them.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 02:54, April 16, 2010 (UTC)


Welcome back, Kagi. Honestly, I really do like the Bowser Jr. Article, but I do indeed see your point. The rules are important to follow. Sega has hinted that there will be more Mario and Sonic Games so we can relax, with confidence that someday Bowser Jr. will have a place on this wiki.Sonictoast 05:06, April 16, 2010 (UTC)


Template:58SlugDrones!

I hate the idea. Sonictoast 15:59, April 16, 2010 (UTC)

I agree with Sonictoast, the Mario characters should have their own articles, but only talk about all things Sonic related, like the Brawl page. And it should only be the important ones, and the ones who've been with Sonic a few times.

Example - DK: With Sonic in a Simpsons episode and in the Simpsons Game, Sonic's sneakers cameo'd in DK's 2nd game, with Sonic in Brawl, and was with him in Winter Olympics.

However, I dont like the idea of someone like Baby Bowser getting his own page. Heck I dont even like Waluigi having his own page (only 'cause I dont like Waluigi or think he's important). The Mario Wiki has way more Sonic articles than we have Mario articles, and I think we should keep it that way.

As for other Non-Sonic characters, I think we should keep:

  • NiGHTS
  • Amigo
  • AiAi
  • Billy Hatcher
  • Ulala
  • Alex Kidd
  • Beat (I'm in the process of trickin out this one, just wait and see)

But please dont ban me 'cause of the last one. As of now, Beat and Sonic have appeared in three games together (I think it might be four as I'm not sure if Sonic appears in Jet Set Radio Future). When I'm done with Beat's article, tell me what you think.

SnoopyJoeCool I AM THE LAW! ~ DjWindmaster97 03:30, April 17, 2010 (UTC)

Well, when (or if) Bowser Jr appears again, then I will personally see to it that the article is restored. Until then, I don't think that Bowser Jr should have an article.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 03:57, April 17, 2010 (UTC)

I agree with you Kagi but the problem with that is people keep MAKING Bowser Jr. articles we can't stop that so I think just let Bowser Jr. have a pageBlazeRocks55 12:36, April 17, 2010 (UTC)


Template:58SlugDrones!

Well I disagree Sonictoast. If someone makes a Bowser Jr page, we delete it and explain the rules to them. If they continue to do it, we delete the page and block them. If needed, we should add the results of this discussion to the rules.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 01:55, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

58, there's nothing wrong with your idea per se, but it is completely in opposition to the decision that has already been made. The majority of users have demonstrated that they are in favour of articles for each character.
Kagi, we definitely need to add the results of this discussion to the rules. No question. -- Supermorff 08:41, April 18, 2010 (UTC)

Good Morff, because if we do that, people are less likely to make an article for characters like Bowser Jr. If they still do, they don't have any justification.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 04:25, April 20, 2010 (UTC)

YepBlazeRocks55 13:48, April 20, 2010 (UTC)


I Propose 2 new non-Sonic character articles.

1. Sabrina the teenage Witch

why? Sonic was in an issue of her comic. She was in an issue of Sonic's comic. They both appeared in an old Archie Halloween special comic. That's 3 comics together.

2. Kirby

why? aside from Sonic and Kirby both being playable in Brawl. The game Kirby Avalanche is the exact same game as Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine. The graphics are identical, the gameplay is identical. The only difference is the characters. Both games were adapted from the Japanese puyo puyo game, SEGA stuck Robotnik in it while Nintendo stuck Kirby in their own version. 3rd reason, Sonic and Kirby both have cartoons made by 4kids. 4kids has produced specials such as "super Brawl Weekend" were they paired off Sonic and Kirby to fight (this was years before smash bros. brawl). So even though Kirby only has one playable appearance, I feel like we could still make quite a full and very interesting article about his interactions with Sonic. Sonictoast 06:59, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

1.) Sabrina the teenage Witch's appearances are only in the comics, strictly non-canon at that. Even Mobius Encyclopaedia has no article on her.
2.) You yourself said it; he has only made one appearance in a video game with Sonic, which can't even count because it was not a Sonic game. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine is similiar to a lot of games, so making an article for Kirby just because the gameplay is the same would open up a whole lotta trouble, and constradicts the previously agreed upon rules. Also, the 4kids battle between Sonic and Kirby is irrelevent to either series of games or even the TV shows themselves.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round~ 14:16, June 2, 2010 (UTC)


I totally see your point and I step down from my proposal. Though I do think that just because something isn't canon doesn't mean it should not be documented. We should cover all things Sonic. Just because Mobius Encyclopedia doesn't have an article doesn't mean we can't. Sonictoast 17:40, June 3, 2010 (UTC)

I like the idea. It would be great to get the whole community voting and seeing who the number one favorite character is. Sonic should be excluded because we all know he'd win. I would guess with sonic out, the winner would be one of the more popular characters like Shadow or Wallace A. Ditso. Anyway, I support the idea, I would go so far as to construct photoshopped pictures of the characters fighting for the match ups, but like supermorph, I have no idea how to set up a tournament looking thing.

BlazeRocks55 makes a very good point. If the tournament is going to be a series of one-on-one match-ups, then you need to start with a power of two, that is 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64 or 128. That way, if one person is eliminated in each match, then the other can go on to the next round here there'll also be a power of two, up to the final. Of course, if you don't want to do it this way (with one-on-one matches), then this point is irrelevant and other numbers may be okay. -- Supermorff 05:54, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

64 is not enough. Especially if we use the SEGA characters. There are over 40 playable characters in the Sonic series alone. Plus all the other great characters from the games, cartoons and comics. How bout we double it. 128 characters. If we are gonna do this, we might as well make it great. Sonictoast 05:52, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

Updating things around here isn't very difficult. All you have to do is look around and decide what you want to edit, and then use what information you know to update said articles. If this Wiki doesn't have any of the articles you want, and what you believe should be on here, then simply create the article yourself and fill it with what information you know about the subject. You can just create the name and page of the article and let someone else fill the article with information if you want. Besides, if you're frustrated about some things not being done around here, then why not do things yourself and contribute? It's as the saying goes.

The weird thing is, the gallery pages look all right. Myself 123 12:58, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

We could do something about this, but it'd leave the gallery pages irrelevant. Over at the Halo wiki, you can add to the galleries so you see the pictures one at a time by pushing a button. It works here too.Fairfieldfencer FFF 16:03, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Slideshows. Actually, I quite like the idea of having gallery pages displaying all the images, and just having slideshows on the character pages with a link to the gallery. -- Supermorff 17:49, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is an excellent compromise.Fairfieldfencer FFF 20:37, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

SFW In Danger!!!

Everyone!! SFW needs our help!! A former User of our sister Wiki has notified /B/ of the Sonic Fanon Wiki, and has encouraged them to attack!! I know some people here may not like or approve of SFW, but we have to help our sister wiki!! Whether /B/ attacks or not is unknown for certain, but I and SFW need everyone who's able to lend a hand when or if it happens!! So whaddya say everybody; are you gonna help out our sister wiki, and also show what Sonic News Network Users are capable of!?!?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 04:32, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

????? Vote Blaze!!! 15:26, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

/b/ is the random posting board of the website 4chan. It is frequented by hackers and trolls with a warped sense of humour, and is notorious for the concerted website attacks (e.g. denial of service) launched by its members to the extent that it is now a rule on the board that there are to be no site invasions. Considering /b/ gets something like a quarter of a million posts every day, if there haven't yet been any attacks, then I would think there are unlikely to be any - besides, SFW would seem to be beneath /b/'s notice. And frankly, if 4chan users do decide to attack SFW, then they are in deep trouble and there is nothing a couple of SNN users could do to stop it. In fact, attempting to launch a defence would probably make SNN itself a target. If there is an attack (and, again, this doesn't seem likely at this point), SFW needs to bring Wikia staff in as soon as possible. -- Supermorff 16:37, August 6, 2010 (UTC)

I think everyone (particularly Kagi) should calm down. Getting stressed effect's your judgement. What we do here is simple. We wait for them to attack, and then do exactly what we do with every other vandal; we ban them and revert their edits. It is even possible to wipe another person's edits off the grid entirely using the delete contributions option. What we don't wanna do is tick these people off by trolling and attacking them, otherwise this could turn into a fued and SFW would have a much bigger problem to deal with. What we need here is negotiation. Police-type negotiation, since that is essentially what admins are on wikia. We talk to them calm and orderly, and lightly inform them of what we will be forced to do if they attack us.Fairfieldfencer FFF 08:37, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Glad FFF and Drones are keeping a level head. As I said before, at this point there is probably not going to be a problem. Calm down. Declaring war is only going to make a problem more likely so, again, calm down. If there is a problem over and above the usual sort of vandalism, then do not fight back - tell Wikia staff and let them deal with it. -- Supermorff 10:42, August 7, 2010 (UTC)

Template:58SlugDrones!

I just had a look at 58's skin from this morning. It's okay, although I confess I prefer the one we have at the moment. My biggest issues with it:

  • The colour is fine (not particularly Sonic-y, but fine), although the red does mean we'd need to change the Wikia logo, because it was obscured and Wikia doesn't like that.
  • The background doesn't tile, and the dividing line is very obvious (and, therefore, obvious that it was just taken from some website without being made custom).
  • There's a 15th anniversary logo on it, despite the fact that we're well beyond the 15th anniversary.
  • As a smaller issue, but I might as well mention it, the main body of the image is obscured by the page. While we can see the characters around the edge, it's harder to see the (more important) characters in the middle.

Pretty good for a first try - my own first tries weren't so impressive. -- Supermorff 08:59, August 8, 2010 (UTC)

New voice actors

Ok so I am noticing that both on Wikipedia and on this Wiki, various characters have new voice actors listed including Shadow, Knuckles, the Babylon Rogues, and probably more. Now I can;t find any proof that these actors are the new voice actors for the Sonic series. Is this true? If so could the provider of the info please give a source, if not then I would like to see this problem fixed immediately. Thanks. 74.70.209.222 15:10, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

P.S. Since I know you were asking, I plan to register today. 74.70.209.222 15:23, August 10, 2010 (UTC)


Thanks for repairing the articles, but it seems that these unconfirmed actors are still being listed on the character pages. The user (an admin) also put a source leading to Wikipedia's page for Sonic Free Riders, which has no info on any voice actors. Jacktheinfinite101 19:22, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

If it was false, the admins on Wikipedia would have removed it. Also, news about this is everywhere. Even on Sonic Retro and the SEGA Forum. Sonic & Scrab Master Kaze no Kizu!

He's right. SignitureAdmiral's Salute 20:10, August 10, 2010 (UTC)
Well I can't even find that info on Wikipedia so perhaps they did remove it and not to mention Wikipedia is much lees of a reliable site for information about Sonic than this Wiki to begin with. In addition to that I looked a some of the forums regarding this and they were all merely in the form of speculation based on a Wikipedia article that is not trustworhty to begin with. If there is a announcement by SEGA or a news article that confirms it then it would be 100% credible. At this point, it can only be considered a rumor. If you still want to have these voice actors listed in the articles in question, then may I request that it be noted that this is merely rumored and not confirmed? Thanks.Jacktheinfinite101 20:21, August 10, 2010 (UTC)

Since Its on SEGA's offical site Let Not Keep Debating It TomxThexHedgehog


We know those are true. We weren't debating them. For one thing this debate is over, but I'll explain anyway. The only new voices that are confirmed are Roger Craig Smith and Kate Higgins as your link suggests. However some unregistered contributor on Wikipedia added voice actors for Knuckles, Jet, Shadow, Wave, and Storm. None of these were confirmed but one of the admins took notice and added them here and I tried to remove them, once the info was removed from Wikipedia itself, then it was settled that the info be removed here. So yeah, this debate is over, there are currently no unconfirmed VA's in the articles and there aren't any confirmed VA's missing from the articles. Jacktheinfinite101 11:30, August 25, 2010 (UTC)

Sonic Battle Moves

As of yesterday, I now have Sonic Battle. So, I have a question: Should I perhaps list the moves that all the characters have on their respective articles, so as to give more detail?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 19:06, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

Alright. Any other suggestions and whatnot?--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 22:41, March 27, 2011 (UTC)

My opinion is that moves that don't appear in more than one game are trivial and don't need to be listed in character articles (perhaps a section could be set up within the game articles to list moves?) Sonic saiyan 20:15, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

Well, this wiki is supposed to cover every single aspect of the Sonic franchise. Leaving out the moves means we're leaving out information.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 20:40, March 28, 2011 (UTC)

True, but that info would not technically be left out if put into the game articles (and thus the wiki would still cover every single aspect) - while the character articles will eventually become extremely bloated with such details, many of which will not be important in the future as many of these moves are forgotten. I just don't feel a massive list of moves from who knows how many different games, most of which may never be of any significance again, makes for a good character article, but again that's just my opinion. Sonic saiyan 01:57, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

Took me a while to figure out what you're on about. Sorry, I thought you were talking about the Combat Statistics in Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood page.

Moving from Wikia

Since you guys have planned the move from Wikia, I'd like to ask you guys something. What will become of this Wiki here? Would it still exist? Would you delete all the pages? Because if other Sonic fans come to this wiki, what will become of it?

Hey! Bullet! The Easter Bunny is Here! 15:43, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Dunno just yet. Personally I say delete everything.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 16:47, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Chances are we'll most likely delete everything from this place, once we're completely sure that everything on here has been copied and moved to another location. Although, if we could, I'd say that we should try to see if we can just have the Wiki as a whole deleted instead after we're done moving, because there's a good chance that Wikia will try to use what's left of this place against the new SNN, and may try to get our name lower on the search list on search engines such as Google. There's also the risk that Wikia may try to get us back somehow or merge the new SNN into it's own mainframe, like what they tried to do with Memory Alhpa Wiki. So what's gonna happen to this place is uncertain as of right now, but if planned carefully then we should be able to move successfully without a hitch and not risk having to face any unfortunate difficulties later in the future.

THIS WIKI IS GONNA WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT?? WHY? O_o

Ediskrad327 17:35, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Because of the Skin that Wikia is forcing upon this website. Don't worry about it, though it might still be a long time before the move actually ocurrs.

Hey! Bullet! The Easter Bunny is Here! 17:57, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Oh and also Kags, do you know when you think the move is going to occur, before the new year maybe?

Hey! Bullet! The Easter Bunny is Here! 18:02, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Wikia don't delete their wikis, because they represent advertising revenue. For a wiki of this size and with this level of traffic, they also will not allow the pages to be deleted, and they will take steps to block anyone that attempts to damage the viability of the site. They've done it before and I guarantee it will happen again here. And, seriously, if you guys still want to move then just do it. Forget Nero's offer because the delay has demonstrated that SNN won't get the webmaster's attention it will need to operate - just go over to shoutwiki or something. Honestly, since you've left it so long I doubt you'll get many people jumping ship. I no longer have any intention of doing so, but then there was only an even chance of me going in the first place. -- Supermorff 18:06, March 30, 2011 (UTC)
I didn't want to move, either, actually. I know how many of the users here hate the new skin, but I found it to be quite useful. Let me ask you all something: Ignoring the fact that there is no shoutbox or anything resembling one, what features have you noticed about this new skin that were better than what was on the old one? I've found quite a few.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 21:34, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Shoutwiki requires payment, losing everything we've got and starting from scratch, and no Monaco; waiting for Nero's dad gives us all of these things. Unfortunately it's not up to any of us how long the move takes; Nero's dad has paying clients and has suffered other delays. However, Nero has said that the move will be completed. And with that move, article and User data and history will be preserved, we'll have Monaco, and on top of that, the wiki will be free both monetarilly and from Wikia. We won't have to pay for it, clutter up the wiki with advertizements, and Wikia can't push any updates people don't want, unlike what was done with the new skin. That's one of the main points of the move; the fact that despite overwhelmingly negative response to both Oasis and the mandatory removal of Monaco, they did it anyway, despite Wiki being a "community-driven site". We have no reason to believe it won't happen again unless we move. This new skin is all flash and minimal substance. Most people deal with it because they have no choice; the only other skin option is Monobook, and some people don't know how to use it.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 21:51, March 30, 2011 (UTC)

Well, Akamia and Morff do point out some good things, but so does Kagi.

Hey! Bullet! The Easter Bunny is Here! 04:07, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Thank you. On top of that, we would have total creative freedom; we could make the wiki look however we, the community, wanted. We could add things that normal wikis and any of those standard wiki sites wouldn't have. We could make the SNN totally unique.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 04:16, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

That is true. We could include anything we wanted and wouldn't have to listen to Wikia.

Monobook takes time getting used to, but it works more or less just as fine as Monaco. I prefer using Monobook because I find it easier to naviagte around Wikis with, and I also don't have a hard time finding certain buttons in order to either edit a page or go to a specific page altogether. Even when I have Oasis on for a few minutes or so every now and then, I still have some difficulty remembering/figuring out where everything is because it all seems out of sight. The only reason I'm neutral on this move is because I still have a skin choice that allows me to edit around Wikia to the best of my ability, and at this point I'd only have doubts about leaving unless Wikia decided to kill Monobook as well and leave only Oasis as our only skin choice, and also prevent everyone from being able to modify or create skins for good. As long as there's a skin I can know how to completely use and work with easily, then I'm probably not gonna jump ship anyway. Besides, as Supermorff pointed out, if we were gonna move we would've done done so already, and since we haven't even I'm beginning to have doubts about whether or not this move will ever occur, or even if it's really necessary anymore at all. As long as I can work and navigate around Wikia without any serious problems that'd make it difficult for me to do so, then I don't really care what we do at this point. As much as I'd like Monaco back, you can't help but ask yourself this, especially at this point: Is it really worth still attempting to go through all this trouble just to get a single skin back? Unless Wikia does something really stupid, then I see no point anymore in seperating with them just to get this one skin back. Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 04:25, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Look, we'd also get the Monobook skin, but there's also the fact of how Wikia went about installing the Oasis skin. They completely quashed the negative opinions most people had about the skin. Even when people wanted Monaco to be maintained alongside Oasis, they still dumped Monaco. We have no reason to believe that Wikia won't force more junk on the wikis. And all the trouble we're going through is just a long wait, which happens because Nero's dad does this as a business, not a hobby. He gets paid to make websites, and as far as he's concerned, he's only doing this for his son and his friends; so of course we get the backburner. On top of that, there have been delays such as finances, moving, and blackouts. I hate having to do all this waiting myself, but it's the fact that Wikia disregarded the community and did what they wanted to do. When the wikis move, Wikia won't be able to tell us to do sh**; we will decide the changes made to the wikis.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 04:38, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

You bring up very good points. Which leads me to this conclusion, as far as skins go; How about we go ahead and bring back Monaco, like everybody wants, but also bring along Oasis, for those (like myself) who have grown accustomed to it, and prefer it over Monaco. I realize that such people may possibly be very few, but maybe at least have it as an option.

As for Wikia's forced change decision, I concur; It was wrong of Wikia, and it directly goes against what they claim to be. Perhaps leaving them behind will be for the best.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 10:30, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Seperating from Wikia and using their current skin would probably be a not-so-good combination....--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 13:53, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

I felt more comfortable around Monaco when I was just a Wikia Contributor. When I came back to make an account, I couldn't find anything, we might have to move, Monaco was much better then Oasis.

Kagi, shoutwiki and all of the major wiki farms operate a migration service. We wouldn't lose anything in the transition. Shoutwiki operates a free service, but it has adverts. It also has Monaco, but that would require payment. If that's not sufficient, try WikiSpot or Ourproject.org, or XWiki, or try the wiki-finder tool at http://www.wikimatrix.org/index.php. -- Supermorff 20:19, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Well with regaining the unfairly taken away Monaco being one of the main goals of the move, and with no way to pay that's a problem. Regardless, it's nice to know that we have other options, if Nero's dad really doesn't pan out.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 20:27, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Let me remind the page that the reason for the move was the community's extreme dislike for Oasis, the favor of Monaco, and the fact that Wikia threw us out the window, in a manner of speaking. It doesn't mean we have to throw Oasis out at all. As I said, for those who liked it better, why not keep it for such people? Everyone else, even the wiki itself, without users' own custom settings, can use Monaco as they please. Oasis can be at the bottom of the skin list, for all I care, but at least consider making the skin an option. Besides, by now, I myself would be rather clumsy with Monaco, due to my getting used to Oasis, which I kind of like better.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 23:38, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Look, I hate Oasis and how it came about with a passion, but if possible I'd make sure it could tag along. The problem is, while Monobook is standard and Wikia freely tossed out Monaco, Oasis was made by and is currently used by Wikia; bringing it along could get people in big trouble. Though if we go without adverts and no-one makes a profit from using Oasis, that might be okay...--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 23:41, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

Hm... I see your point. Well, if we can make it work, then okay then. If it doesn't work out, I suppose me and Monaco should get re-acquainted. In any case, your logic is sound. Only time will tell if plans work out.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 23:46, March 31, 2011 (UTC)

I see your point Kagi.

ArchivePage

So, does the wiki community approve? If possible, I'm thinking of also editing the ArchiveList template to customize it more. But that's only if this template is approved in the first place.--Kagimizu-Seeya 'round 04:53, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

I think it looks okay. It's noticable, at least. Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 05:09, April 13, 2011 (UTC0

Design is nice but I think the colours need changing. The red text, green background and blue outline look fine when they are separate, but don't seem to go well together, in my opinion. I'm fine with the idea of archiving talk pages too. -- Supermorff 20:05, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

I don't think the design needs much changing, I approve.

It's good.

Hey! Bullet! The Easter Bunny is Here! 00:47, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Speaking of archiving, I think this page should be archived again.

Sonic Charcter Tournament

The tournament is now over. Shouldn't it be removed from the main page by now? The Master of War Games! Curiously Adventuring! TheWarGame 03:54, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

Probably. I just wonder if the whole tournament will be locked and archieved. Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 03:56, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

New Duplicate Images

I would like to propose something about duplicate images. I've been going through many uncategorized files and I've seen countless amounts of duplicate images uploaded to this Wiki, and I'm beginning to find it a bit annoying to have to go to several pages that these duplicate files are in use on in order to replace them with images which we already possess. So here's what I propose: I think we should make a strict policy on duplicate images which states that any duplicates which are uploaded and identified are immediately deleted, and are replaced with images that we already have on the page(s) the duplicate was previously used on. I think this would be a good idea because it would save some additional dataspace and we don't have to go through the trouble of organizing additional images which we went through the trouble of working with previously. Any agreements or suggestions? Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 18:48, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

I second this.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 22:42, April 15, 2011 (UTC)

How would you enforce that? -- Supermorff 08:27, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

By simply looking at the "New Files" Special Page. Every new file that is uploaded to a Wiki can be accessed and viewed from there. Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 08:59, April 16, 2011 (UTC)

Why don't you just do that now? -- Supermorff 09:10, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
I'm doing that already, but I'm suggesting we make it an established policy so new and current Users will know that any duplicate files they upload could be subject to instant deletion. Besides, I can only do so much to enforce this by myself since I do not have the deletion function present in my current list of abilities. The most I can do is tag images and hope they'll get deleted by an Administrator. Also, why take this responsibility by myself when we have other Administrators that could help me out? Would it make sense to establish a policy like this and just hand over the complete responsibility to enforce it to just a single User? What if that User one day disappears out of the blue and no one else does anything to enforce the new policy just because the expect that User to do so for them? SNN is a team project, so I don't think I should have to do this by myself, which is why I brought this issue to everyones' attention to begin with, because I'm wondering if anyone would be willing to help me enforce this kind of policy. Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 21:16, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
I'll help in whatever way I can.--Akamia(Talk)(Want to see what I've been doing?) 23:59, April 16, 2011 (UTC)
I appreciate that, but I wanna see what everyone else thinks. Meanwhile I'll just handle the duplicates how I have been doing. Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 00:01, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

The upload log would be better for checking new images. Myself 123 19:10, April 17, 2011 (UTC)

I haven't changed the policy, but I have added some text to MediaWiki:Uploadtext, which should appear every time someone uploads an image. Let me know if it's sufficient. -- Supermorff 12:51, April 18, 2011 (UTC)

@Myself: Really? You think so? But with the New Files Special page you can actually view the images that are uploaded themselves, but all the Upload log log really does is just shows a list. And New Files shows how long the file has been on the Wiki just like the upload log does. Personally, I think the New Files page may actually be better at checking new images.

@Supermorff: I think that'll work. Thanks a lot. Phoenix the CatThe flames reborn.... 15:06, April 18, 2011 (UTC)
