  1. Happy Birthday to us! ^_^ How do you like the new Sonical + Sonical Dark skins? My aim is to convert all of the existing character skins to this style very soon. Stay tuned!

    1. Teoskaven

      I do, but as i stated here, the news images are still messing up with the layout by making the right coloumn extremely long compared to the main board one (the news section itself was already doing this, but the images are adding more to the pile).

    2. Polkadi~☆

      They’re pretty neat skins, but some improvements can be made. On the profile side of topic posts, the formatting doesn’t seem quite right. And to echo Teo, I said this on your topic post:

      Quote

      Just one minor suggestion, wouldn’t the news articles be better as a row at the top of the boards, like how they are on the main page? It takes too long to scroll down to the new topics and status updates otherwise...

      On the other hand, the boards could use some optimisation, because holy hell, it takes forever to load pages now, as the filesize of each page got bigger. My browser is struggling to keep up...

      I may do some tweaks over time if it's really problematic, but for now it's a design choice to give the forum the same design language as the website (plus to effectively provide the news feed in a way that matches the site). I did listen to feedback beforehand when it comes to the mobile view of the news feed however, so now there's a columned view if you browse the forums with a smaller device.

      Hopefully this won't be too much of a dramatic adjustment to make, but see how you get on. Always open to feedback.

      The slowdown might be related to the issues we're having atm with search/content indexing. Hopefully we'll figure out a fix soon. @Polkadi~☆ can you send me a screengrab of what you mean about the profile side of topic posts? I basically spent a bunch of time re-organising it (it was all a complete mess in the old layout - unaligned icons, ugly looking awards layouts etc) so if something looks wrong I'll take a look. It's probably something browser-specific I missed.

      Here’s such an example.

      I really like the themes, probably the best we’ve had in a long time. The mobile version in particular feels really nice now.

      My only real criticism is as said, I’m not a big fan of where the news is placed, since it pushes new topics so far down. I’ve had times where I’ve totally forgotten new topics as a thing exists since it’s pushed so far down the site now

      My on,y

      @Polkadi~☆ What looks strange about that?

      EDIT: So the thinking here goes (underneath 'member' banner):

      Left side: Reputation Icon
      Right side: Reputation, number of posts
      Next line, left side: Gender/Country
      Next line, right side: Social media profile icons

      Just in case your point is about the social media icons sitting on the right. It's meant to look like that.

  2. Uh oh.

      Finally, it's public!

  3. I am a HUGE fan of Bethesda-era Fallout (F3, New Vegas*, F4) buuuuuuuuuut a $99 annual sub for a broken online game? Whoops.

    1. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      This sounds kind of desperate from Bethesda.

      They'd probably be better off abandoning Fallout 76 and porting Fallout 3 & New Vegas to current gen.

  4. Yeah I've been sick all week, but I've had time to prep something really nice for the site (well, the forums) in time for its 19th birthday. ^_^ So I'm feeling good. Happy weekend everyone!

    1. Pawn

      Pawn

      Happy weekend! And I hope you're feeling better!

      Congrats and feel better man!

  5. Monday thoughts while I'm resting up sick... I really don't mind Sonic Racing on Apple Arcade, but I'd like it a lot more if it wasn't so buggy. Besides constant repeat Achievement notifications, there are connection issues and random crashes all over the place. :S

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      Oh, so the achievements thing isn't just me? I had to outright unlink my Game Center account to stop the game from listing every single achievement you've gotten when you return to the menu. 
      The game isn't great. It's not awful, but it's not worth getting Apple Arcade for if it's all your interested in. Better than Mario Kart Tour though. What bugs me the absolute most though is that it's structured like a regular mobile game with loot boxes and collecting hundreds of cards to upgrade Wisps. It seems quite obvious to me that the game was designed as a regular mobile game first before being slightly retooled for Apple Arcade.

    2. Dreadknux

      Dreadknux

      Yeah the first time I booted it up I thought 'oh this is Sonic Forces Speed Battle... oh wait no it's not'

    3. Ryannumber1Santa

      Ryannumber1Santa

      The achievement thing is the worst right now. It’s insanely annoying.

      The game itself is fairly fun, although I wish they tied level progression to just playing instead of buying and upgrading wisps, it makes it difficult to feel like you’re actually working towards something.

    4. Tracker_TD

      Tracker_TD

      Weird, last I tried the achievement bug had stopped happening to me after I updated the game... maybe it'll start again when I play it again now, uh oh lol 

    5. Dreadknux

      Dreadknux

      It's never stopped popping up for me. I love knowing every five seconds that I upgraded a Wisp. XD

  6. Just added TSS' Anniversary to the Community Calendar (24 October), surprised I hadn't done it sooner! Next year, this whole place will be TWENTY YEARS OLD.............

  8. I'm (very slowly) planning things for a new era of TSS. First we're on a mission to refresh the writing staff. If you want to join, shoot me a DM!

  9. We just did our first TSS Twitch livestream! AAH! Here's a link to the broadcast (and the channel): 

     

  10. Here's the TSS Review of Team Sonic Racing! Give it a read! :) https://www.sonicstadium.org/2019/05/tss-review-team-sonic-racing/

  11. Been a while since I conducted one of these: here's our latest interview with Takashi Iizuka about Team Sonic Racing!

    https://www.sonicstadium.org/2019/05/tss-interview-takashi-iizuka-hints-at-dodon-pas-return-as-master-of-ceremonies/

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Dodon Pa is going to be a recurring character!

      Everyone be nice to him while he checks into his new room. 

    2. Polkadi~☆

      Polkadi~☆

      Well, here’s a pleasant surprise!

  12. SXSW Panel reveal: the silhouette of the 'Movie Sonic' is uncovered to unveil a Crash Bandicoot movie instead. Iizuka goes, "Psyche! Here's the real movie trailer," and it's two minutes of Jim Carrey contorting into balls and gnawing on giant golden rings.

  13. I still don't really get Kingdom Hearts. The story is basically 'Donald Duck is the freaking LAD', right?

    1. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I think it's the game where Goofy dies

    2. Dreadknux

      Dreadknux

      why does everyone have to die

    3. Thigolf

      Thigolf

      @Indigo Rush That's KH2, actually

    4. Dreadknux

      Dreadknux

      I thought KH2 was the one where Squall became Christopher Lee

    5. Ryannumber1Santa

      Ryannumber1Santa

      If by lad, you mean sadistic cunt who watches you die while desperately crying for healing, then yes

      Kingdom Hearts 1: Whenever Kairi isn't on screen all other characters should say 'Where's Kairi?'

      Kingdom Hearts 2: I'm Roxas! No wait I'm Sora! I am also Goofy.

       

      And that's as far as I got.

    8. Bobnik

      Bobnik

      Nah, the story is: Donald sucks cuz he never heals"

  15. Planning a wedding is hard.

    1. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      1: Get Wife.

      2: Get suit.

      3: Get Vicar. 

      4: Find a cave.

      5: Dance like James Bond.

       

      Congratulation. You wedding!

    2. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      ...and ridiculously expensive.

       

      If all else fails you can just get hitched in Vegas.

    3. MightyRay

      MightyRay

      I wish you the best of luck with planning everything out and everything turning out for the best! And to think I get married my partner and I will have to plan two weddings!

    4. Teoskaven

      Teoskaven

      The first point is always the most difficult.

    5. Dreadknux

      Dreadknux

      I’m no marrying in a cave, Dave

    6. Badnik Mechanic

      Badnik Mechanic

      But all boys eventually dress up like James Bond and live in a cave.

    7. Kiah

      Kiah

      Yes it’s hard and expensive but it can be fun and exciting too for it being a joyous occasion. 

      I hope it doesn’t end up too stressful for you and everything else involved and I wish you the best as well as having some fun along the way ?

      @Mightyray two weddings? That’s interesting...

    8. Dreadknux

      Dreadknux

      Thanks everyone - haha @Kiah I will probably die from the stress before too long! Only six months to go :S

    9. Kiah

      Kiah

      Noooo @Dreadknux don’t do that. Please ?

    10. MightyRay

      MightyRay

      @Kiah Yep. I live in Oz and My partner is a Yank. So in order for neither of our families to miss out we'll have two weddings.

    11. Dreadknux

      Dreadknux

      @Mightyray My best pal did that this year, she was from the UK but moved to Australia and had two weddings, one in each country. That must be stressful but so rewarding when both are pulled off!

  16. Might want to take a peek at TSS right now -- we've launched a new skin there ahead of Sonic Mania Week, called 'STK Maniacs'! :)

      Awesome! And I see there are some articles I need to check out so thanks for tipping me off not only on that but the new skin! ?

  17. I'm guessing you all missed me, then. I missed you all too. Is everything where I left it? Looking for my shoebox.

    1. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      We always miss you. Nice to see you post hear.

      Oh yeah, I know I'm a little late but congrats on getting engaged.

      Kiah

      Your shoebox went missing? Wouldn't be surprised if @Zaysho stole it in effort to get banned as nothing else has worked so far! Can't confirm if @Tara's comment is true. Or I won't rather ;).

      And yes! Congratulations on your engagement! :D 

    5. Zaysho

      Zaysho

      It's true.

      I stole it and gave it to Tara because she needed a goldfish coffin.

      I'll pack my bags.

      Naw but seriously, it's an awesome update to the look of the main site. Looks a lot more modern, and should hopefully work a lot more better on mobiles.

  20. OK, maybe this surprise on the main site will have to be tomorrow. Hit a few roadbumps *shakes fist at coding gods*

  21. All part of the plan. I'll be back in action soon, I promise. I'm still tinkering away, behind the scenes. There are many stages to go yet. But tomorrow will be fun. I'm proud of it.

  22. If you like visiting the main site/blog, you'll be in for a surprise tomorrow. :)
