  1. Are you sure you have time to talk? I replied to our PM a couple of weeks back, (Before my current downfall.) and having finally sorted out a password issue, I sent a message from Discord today and haven't had a reply from either of them yet.

    Or maybe I did something wrong?

    1. Kiah


      I’m sorry. You didn’t do anything wrong. I had no idea that you PMed me and I apologize. I just took a look at my inbox and the same day you wrote me I had to deal with an urgent matter so missed your message as a result, sorry. 

      As for Discord, I’m not on it anymore like I was for several reasons. If you need me on there you need to inform me here via PM and I’ll hop on. 

    2. DanJ86


      Oh, I see. Those were the only two ways I knew how to contact you.

    3. Kiah


      Yeah well it’s one at this point as far as reliability and accessibility is concerned. Maybe end up nixing Discord altogether. 

  2. How's it going (PS I was going to leave a message about you winning the day yesterday but apparently the system is weird.  But I still thought I'd say hey B)

    1. tailsBOOM!


      @Coyote (Ogilvie) actually won (But if I used a custom date it said you won... I don't even know)

    2. Kiah


      I was about to say I didn’t win anything yesterday...and I don’t know what that’s about but thank you anyway 🙂

    3. tailsBOOM!


      See here's the side by side comparison (You should get this checked out):

      (Custom Date)


      (Past Leaders)


      ... Well congrats on winning in one version lol

  3. @Kiah: A sad remix of "Happy"


    1. Kiah


      Why? Do not want.

      Anyway here’s a more important question: how are you fairing with the hurricane?

    2. tailsBOOM!


      Pretty good.  It won't stop raining... But the college has enough food and water (And the electricity and wifi is still on).  All the college's energy supply has been refocused (Primarily) to the residence hall I'm in.

    3. Kiah


      Well the rain won’t be stopping anytime soon seeing this is a hurricane you’re dealing with. 

      Glad you have what you need, still have power and most importantly that your safe. Hope that continues on all accounts. 

    4. tailsBOOM!
    5. TailsTellsTales


      The storm will be over eventually and it luckily did weaken before impact though I did overheard record storm surge but not certain of that.

    6. tailsBOOM!


      @TailsTellsTales I'm pretty glad about that...  I'd rather not have dealt with the so-called "Storm of the Century" or whatever it was they were billing it as.

  4. Hey @Kiah you aren't in the path of Florence, are you?  Because I am and my college is cancelling classes for the rest of the week.  If you are I hope you stay safe!

    1. Kiah


      Even though where I am is in the path of Hurricane Florence the potential impact has yet to be determined here. Just have to wait and see yet be prepared and definitely hope for the best. 

      And thank you! I hope you stay safe too!

    2. tailsBOOM!


      @Kiah  it's so bad that I received an email from my aunt who is currently refusing to talk to me to stay safe...  I'm not even on the coast but we are in high alert still.  And what sucks that due to my unique circumstances I have to stay here since I have nowhere else to go...  I'm just hoping for the best.


    3. Kiah


      Well try to consider the positive in all this-your aunt did reach out to you out of concern for your safety. And I hope where you are that you’ll be safe. I’m hoping for the best too. 

    4. tailsBOOM!


      Thanks @Kiah!  I'll remember this advice!  I'll give you updates on my condition!

    New Moderators

    New mods?! Wait...I mean new mods! Yeah, new mods! Yay! I'm slipping when it comes to my manners, lol. But seriously WELCOME to the team @Blacklightning, @Pawn, and @Strickerx5! I am certain you will get the hang of things in a Sonic second and you will do just fine! Among the things you'll get used to among dealing with @Celestia and @Zaysho's constant shenanigans being mods is sleeping on the floor. Sorry, but that's protocol for rookie mods per the rules! Also for immediate advice: the ban-hammer is NOT A TOY! Be very careful when you handle, swing or even threaten members with it! Jokes aside, CONGRATULATIONS on your promotions gentlemen and I really look forward to working with you all

    Per the rules in Showcase, we require that all criticism is to be of a constructive nature. Comparaing artwork of a member to someone else does not only constitute as such but it comes across as rude and tactless. We want to encourage our fellow members to share their works and do so freely without any concerns of insults or criticism that isn’t constructive in the slightest even in effort to help them improve. Be more thoughtful when giving your opinions and feedback.
  7. Time to wrap things up here! That includes the giving out of badges and some final words from me. My apologies for the delay on both accounts. The quality from the artwork to the banners and the videos was outstanding and was a real delight to look at. There are some very talented members of the Motobug crew and SSMB for that matter! The dedication and hard work put in by everyone involved ought to be commended as you all put on a great show. Thank you for that, and thank you very much for your thoughtfulness, dedication and hard work in once again doing something fun and entertaining for the community. It was great with the first event and you all made it a point to go above and beyond last year and definitely this year with the Sonic Musical Spectacular 3. Per usual with any event that I sponsor I like to come up with some statistics: 41 members participated! This was the highest amount of participants ever for this event! All the participants came up with 163 awesome Sonic songs! The Sonic game with the most requests was Sonic Mania with 9 songs Sonic Unleashed was second with 6 songs Sonic Forces rounded out the top 3 with 5 (there were other categories with 5 requests but they were in groups. Forces was the only game to have 5 all by itself.) We weren't able to get a official count of those that attended the stream. Guess we were too busy enjoy that awesome music 😉. As for the stream like last year, I was out of town for a quick weekend trip but I was able to join in via mobile just in time for that Sonic Mania goodness 😎. It was short and sweet and I had fun hanging out with everyone on the stream. The badges have been awarded at this point. I hope you all enjoy them 🙂 A big THANK YOU to all involved from the hard working creators to the enthusiastic participants and everyone in between, your contributions and collaboration in this community event was a success. May this success continue between changes-both already established changes and changes yet to come no matter how significant-between now and the next event. So until then...that's a wrap!
  8. blessed be kiah hows your day been?

    1. Kiah


      I’m doing okay thanks. Hope all is well with you 🙂

    2. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      yeah life is starting to get a lot better

    3. Kiah


      Oh that’s great to hear! Hope that continues for you!

    4. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      yeah I hope so

      the computer's been acting up of course this is an old computer 7-8 years old in fact

      so that's why it seemed like I vanished

    5. Kiah


      Oh I see. That sucks. Hopefully you will have something more reliable soon. 

    6. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      yeah I hope it holds up

    7. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      yeah and living in Oklahoma has taught me 1 thing the weather here is nuts

      like 1 minute its a nice sunny day

      the next minute its storming like mad

  9. This event isn't even a full 2 days old but several issues have made themselves apparent to where something needs to be said. First off, it is the responsibility of each participant in this event to check the OP to see which Sonic games have slots available for song requests as Ryan is trying to be up to date as much as possible updating the requests as will I when he is unavailable to do so. This isn't guaranteed to always be up to date due to the fact we are both very busy people and we can't have an eye on this topic 24-7 as that's impossible to do. That said, we ask that you take a look at a few recent posts to ensure that remaining spots haven't been filled by these recent posts in the instance that the OP isn't up to date. Also, when submitting songs do not post extensions of the song. We know Sonic music is way past cool* but because there will be so many songs played on the stream which will amass to a huge amount of time overall it's not appropriate nor accomodating to post 15 and 30 minute extensions of the song. When participants do this it brings about more work for Ryan to track down the non-extended versions and relink them in the OP and that's both time-consuming and really not fair to him. This project created some amazing results the past 2 years as well as a lot of fun for the community and in order for that to happen again everyone's cooperation is needed. That includes following the directions and requirements as indicated in the opening post of this event to guarantee its success and fun for all involved. Now that that's out of the way... Another year, another Sonic Musical Spectacular! The first two were a blast so naturally I'm looking forward to this one. Here are my requests: Sonic Colors-Planet Wisp Act 2 Gotta show some love for my favorite Sonic Soundtrack in Sonic Colors! I requested Act 1 in the first event and requested an amazing Planet Wisp remix for the second event so why not continue requesting the awesomeness that is Planet Wisp? 😉😉 Sonic Mania-Press Garden Act 2 We should just play the entire Sonic Mania soundtrack. It's absolutely glorious! Semi-joking aside, this track is my love and threatening to overtake Sonic 3D Blast/Flickies' Island (Saturn)-Rusty Ruins Zone Act 1as my favorite overall Sonic track. It's fantastic! Sonic Lost World-Club Needlemouse-Windy Groove (Windy Hill Remix) Came across this groovy gem while trying to find a remix for a slot that wasn't already filled...I had already liked the original but this remix in my opinion has it beat! SatAM-Robotnik's Theme Unfortunately there isn't much music from the cartoon to choose from overall with my favorite cartoon of all time but here we are! *SSMB should know by now how much of a SatAM fan I am! And no, I'm NOT sorry for using that SatAM reference earlier! 😋
  10. hey kiah I hope you feel better soon

    1. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      my prayers are with you

    2. Kiah


      I was wondering how you knew I was sick but I guess I said it the statuses enough and is even indicative via my profile lol. 

      Anyway, I’m much better now bar me coughing still but thank you very much for your care and concern 🙂

    3. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      yeah the statuses gave that info away

      I feel bad for acting the fool while you're sick

      so I was going to post a prayer for you

  11. Sorry to hear that you're sick while on vacation. I'm hoping for your optimum recovery!

    1. Kiah


      I see what you did there. Thanks Jova!

      Perfect timing as I just rode a Transformers ride! ?

  12. Knock it off with the fanboyism and the condescending tone as we have tolerance for neither here at the SSMB. Obnoxiousness aside, not at the rate you're going in all honesty will this ever happen. Staff is real sick and tired of talking to you about the way you talk down to your fellow members at times and it's bound to get you banned from here unless you seriously shape up and learn to talk to people with an actual sense of respect even when you disagree with them. No one should be considered to be "delusional" for having an opinion that you disagree with or even find to be seemingly impossible to have. Especially since we all have opinions that can and actually do vary. Not only should this be acknowledged, but contesting said opinions should be done so respectfully and not in dismissive and insulting manner. Not only is it counterproductive to constructive discussion but it puts you in line for disciplinary action if this happens again. Do not do this.

    You were told to drop this as this has nothing to do with the topic at hand and is derailing it and we don’t take either obnoxiousness nor insubordination towards Staff lightly. For this you can have a strike. We are going to tell you once again to drop it and get back on topic in a calm and constructive manner as opposed to throwing temper tantrums if you choose to post here. Otherwise you will get another strike and a lengthy suspension to go with it. That’s enough.
  14. Today marks my 15 year anniversary at my job. Usually on Saturday nights I work both Customer Service and bookkeeping. I go in the bookkeepers’ office and find this on the counter: 


    I was so surprised and happy to see this gift-especially the socks as I’ve been looking for Sonic socks for a while. The orange cupcake is of significance because orange is my favorite color. I knew right away this was my friend that left this for me as she was the opening bookkeeper this morning and she has bought me Sonic-related gifts several times. 

    So yeah-15 years! It’s been quite a journey with me being a shy 19 year old that had second thoughts about taking this job to a 34 year old that talks too much and enjoys her job. And my coworkers are a huge reason why as they are like family to me. 

    1. MightyRay


      Congrats on your 15th anniversary! That's really wonderful that your co-workers care about you so much!

    2. TheBlueGuardian


      Congrats for working at your job for 15 years, I'm glad you finally got what you were looking for (the Sonic socks), shows how much your co-workers cares about you.^_^

    3. Failinhearts


      That is so nice! It's awesome how much your coworkers understand you for this, and you deserve it! Happy 15th anniversary!

    4. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

    5. Mr Loopone

      Mr Loopone

      Well done for working for 15 years in the same job, not many people these days are lucky to stay in a job and its great that one of them gave you gifts. You should be happy and so am I.

      Sorry for the delay as I had to work overtime tonight and I’m just now getting a break so I can get back to you all but thank you very much! ?

      First and foremost I am extremely thankful to even have a job that allows me to support myself let alone one that I enjoy so much. Especially with the awesome coworkers I work with as we are always looking out for and doing nice things for each other. The Sonic gifts just happen to be the best part of all of that ?.

    10. Eurisko


      That’s awesome!!! There are very few places from what I gather that would do this for a work anniversary.

      you clearly have some lovely Co-workers. You’re very lucky. And well done :)

    11. BlueSky


      Congratulations for the anniversary. :D

      And the socks.

      And the cupcake.

    12. tailsBOOM!


      That reminds me of my birthday.  My family got me a shaving kit, my foster family a shirt they said they knew I wouldn't like... But my friend surprised me on the bus with a Sonic plush, which made it all better (And he's a Mario fan, so I took it upon myself for Christmas to get him a stupid Luigi plush (Can't say Luigi without putting stupid))!

  15. hey Kiah I have a question

    1. Kiah


      Sure. What’s up?

    2. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      okay i'm sorry if this reply came late I was thinking on my question

      is it okay to post stuff like lists for decks for status updates?

    3. Kiah


      Sure that’s fine. Just keep in mind if it’s a long list it’s better to put it in spoiler tags so as not to stretch the status page and not irritate your fellow members. 

    4. Prince Weiss

      Prince Weiss

      my list are never that long

      if I have multiples of one card then I put 4 (insert card name here)

      to save time and space
