  1. So! Which of the classic TSS Banners (or old-school SSMB Community-Made Banners) is your favourite so far? :)

      "To all visitors to the Sonic Stadium

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

      See ya in SA3, Sonic"

      And Sonic was never heard from again

  2. Happy June! Did some work on the SSMB header to bring back a rotation of ALL our classic banners. From 2000 to present day! :)

      Including the Christmas ones apparently?

  3. Happy June everyone! We're a little closer to The Sonic Stadium's 20th Anniversary (October 24th) and to continue our celebrations we've adapted the SSMB header so that you can see TSS' title banner evolution over the years. If you are viewing SSMB on Desktop, you'll notice on Sonical 2020 or Sonical Dark 2020, the header area includes a smaller 'TSS 20 YEARS' logo in the corner (always available in case you want a quick-link back to the landing page) and a random banner in the centre background. This area will show you a random banner from our 20 years in operation - from our very first logo from 2000 to our last banners back in 2015. We also have included almost all of our SSMB-user-created banners from back when we marked our TENTH anniversary in 2010. Man, how time flies - it's been ten years since that moment already! Some of the creators of these community banners are still on these forums today. We hope it will draw some positive nostalgic feelings for all of us. The next step here is for us to be open to NEW rotating banners. I'd like to explore ways we can have the community here today create the next generation of TSS/SSMB banners to mark our 20th anniversary. Let me know if you'd be up for getting your artistic hat on, and we'll formally kick off a campaign to create new banners soon!
  4. Yeah, this is quite a surprising turn of events. For what it's worth, I was supporting of TSSZ's coverage/amplification of news surrounding the BLM protests before the 'Sonic Adventure 2/Sonic Forces comparison' tweet happened. I can certainly see the argument that, as long as you're not editorialising anything, letting your audience (who may only know about Sonic depending on what accounts they follow) know about a huge cultural event taking place is important. Even if he did go a bit ham on the retweets, but that's neither here or there. The comparison tweet was a misstep though, and should have resulted in a walkback from TSSZ. Sadly, that didn't happen - maybe it was heat of the moment (always a good reason to take a break from social media every now and then), or lockdown anxiety or something, but the response to community reaction to that particular tweet could have been handled better. It certainly doesn't necessitate a shutdown of the site. For better or worse, TSSZ has been an important part of the online Sonic community and we're all the poorer for it not existing (at the very least, in archive form). I hope Tristan takes a few days to cool off and figure out a new way forward.
  5. OK you guys probably know that the @sonicstadium Twitter account is currently kaput. I've revived my old Twitter account in the meantime, feel free to follow me there: @Dreadknux

      Trying to figure that out with Twitter right now, they're being super slow to respond to anything we send them (likely due to covid delaying everything), but what we do know for sure is that it's not the result of a hack or malicious activity. Something to do with Twitter thinking the account is a 'minor' (in terms of age) or something.

      Confirmed: Twitter has no respect for "minorities"

      The corporate entity of the Sonic Stadium is 20 this year so that's hilarious.

  6. Hi guys - sorry about the weirdness with Sonical Dark 2020 theme there. I've fixed it - please feel free to change back (you may need to reset cache). Let me know if you have any more issues!

  7. @Wraith you might want to avoid making text a certain colour (the text in the quote tags are white), I'm unable to read it in the light theme. This is a total surprise, straight outta nowhere! I mean, we all 'knew' a Paper Mario was coming due to all the rumours... but coming in July? That's quite soon! I know a lot of people rag on the Paper Mario series these days, but I'm one of those weirdos that likes it (I enjoyed Sticker Star, until I got stuck helplessly on the world map with no idea what to do or where to go, lol!). If they tweak the battle system so you're not SOL if you happen to not have a particular item, it should be a much more refined experience.

  9. My teenage years were spent round a mates house almost living and breathing that warehouse. Man, I feel old.
  10. Thanks for the feedback, Solister! All good suggestions - definitely will work on them (although not sure how or why posting is going slow or buggy, might be a code/server thing). The alt themes are going to be deprecated (they already should be - I thought I moved everyone over to the Sonical 2020 theme a while ago but I guess it didn’t take) as some of them are super old and the wonks on them won’t be fixed. Instead we will introduce new versions based on this new design (we just needed to finalise and get it 100% right before we started doing that). I just need to tighten up one or two things (the subforum icons being one of them!!) and we can get to work And yes, the plan is to make sure there is some kind of uniformity between site and forum so at some point I’ll bring STK Maniacs over to SSMB, when I have time.
  11. What’s your favourite quote to pop up in the header? And can you guess where they’re all from (there are some deep cuts in there)?

      "Find the computer room" will always be a classic.

       

      "No way! I can't believe this!" is great too.

  12. First step towards a revised TSS/SSMB design to prep for our 20th anniversary! What do you think? :)

  13. Starting to think of what we can do for TSS and SSMB's 20th Anniversary... anyone have any requests/ideas they want to share? :) 

    1. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      I think it'd be interesting to maybe do some forum events this year. Myself and Motobug staff have already begun work organising our yearly Musical Spectacular event for the board, and hopefully that goes smoothly, but I'd love to see a few other events this year this well, especially during Winter or something.

      I'd also love to see some themes get updated to the new Sonical style. I used to use the Vector theme a lot, because I liked the green/white style, but ended up switching to Sonical 2020 because I liked the modern look it had, so it'd be great to have them both in one theme, and I'm sure people would feel the same about modernising some of the other themes.

      I don't know if its still possible with the current IP Board, but I thought the member-made forum banners thing we did almost a decade ago was pretty neat, and on top of other forum events we had going on, it was one of the most fun times to be on here during the 2010's.

    3. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Oh yeah, I totally forgot about the fan-made banners. IIRC, there was even a special badge or something for making one, wasn't there?

    4. Ferno

      Ferno

      I think there was. Also this tangent makes me even more sad that we lost a chunk of 2014-2015 SSMB when that mini-wipe happened

    5. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Oh yeah, the great SSMB fart of ‘15. Can’t believe that was five years ago.

      and I also can’t forget I’ve nearly been here six years now. Jeez, I’m beginning to feel old

    6. Ferno

      Ferno

      i-i've been on here since 2006 so i feel ancient. hopped on board on and off when the '06 hype discussions were going on

    7. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      It feels weird knowing even though I've been here for over half a decade, and yet I'm still probably a noob compared to some of the longtime members, lol.

      Although I can relate to the hype cycle. I joined right around Rise of Lyric

      My gut tells me I was here around when Shadow the Hedgehog was the latest game, if not Heroes.

    9. Ferno

      Tbh even as old as I am on here, I still feel like a new kid compared to the Heroes-era members, or the ones who were here even earlier than that. That feeling never really goes away, lol

      Lmao I remember the ssmb 2014 fart

      My account got "Thanos snapped" that day

      Great suggestions guys. Yeah, I'd love to plan out some forum-related stuff, and design some new badges too. I like the idea of custom banners like our 10th anniversary too... it might be difficult with the current design. I've been thinking about how I can tweak the header design to incorporate something like that.

      I'm very keen on 'porting' the older character designs to this new look as well, actually. When I designed Sonical 2020, I did it in a way that would be super-easy to make new child themes, so this could be something I could turn around pretty quickly. Might get one done this weekend actually.

      I really liked the community-driven events we used to have on here - the Sonic Stadium Music Album projects for example, or the collab fan art stuff we used to do. Maybe some of us can get together and make some kind of mural or something. :) 

  14. Doing a lot of TSS Legacy restoration work lately, and every time I see old site and SSMB designs I think about rejigging the current look to make it look like those old pages.

    ...And then I come back on here and see the current 2020 Sonical themes and realise it looks pretty boss already. Maybe some things best left to the past?

      You can always find a happy fusion between the two. Add in the best of both worlds.
