    HotFudge got a reaction from Wolfy in Where is this song from? PLEASE HELP   
    I am speechless. This is it. This is my song!!!!!!!!!!
    I can't even tell you how much I've longed to hear it again and how long ago it was since I've last heard it. 
    THANK YOU SO MUCH GALABANCE!!!!   
    I've edited the original post with a soundcloud upload if anyone still wants to hear my slightly awkward piano version 
    Used SoundCloud. Thanks

    HotFudge reacted to Nepenthe in Sonic Zone Forum- who here was a member?   
    I was on there was BlizShadow from roughly around 2003 to its eventual death around 2007 or so, and I can tell you that the ire that forum got was wholly deserved. Most of the staff were pretty awful, a mean bunch who I imagine only got to their position of power expressly through connections with other staff members. The owner was never involved and got so distanced from the forum's running that he just sold it off to some guy in Italy who gave even less of a fuck to the point that he vanished completely, and with him so did access to the ACP hence the site's death. I think our very own Chris was called in to try to fix the situation but couldn't.
     
    Also, the threshold for conversation and forum management was just as bad. If there were any grammar rules, they weren't enforced. Same with flaming. I also remember way back in the site's early days that they had a forum expressly devoted to each of the game characters. While I admit it was interesting in hindsight to see how these forums had such different atmospheres due to the congregation of different demographics that enjoyed these characters (the Cream forum was exactly like you'd expect a Cream forum to look like in terms of conversation, and it was subsequently the complete opposite from the Shadow forum), it also bred a lot of competition and resentment between regulars of specific forums and eventually got to the point where they just nixed it completely.

    Even as much as I look back on the site and some of the people there with contempt, I nonetheless recognize that it was my first Internet home and it's where I went through the majority of my growing pains with regards to the Internet. I was undoubtedly an argumentative ass that couldn't really let go of anything without getting the last word in. It's a personal thing I have to shake off every now and again, although doing all of that arguing made me a better debater and conversationalist in the long run anyway. I also met a few good friends on there or at least during that period. Our own D'Metal is one; he was one of the good staffers on there. There was also Archer- an excellent writer and RPer- and an Axel Fire was another, who was joined at my hip as my debating buddy until the forum died. I've been trying to find him since; I'd love to talk to him again, or even wonder if he's still apart of the fandom.

    TailzChao was in the online list. My sister. What a freaking nostalgia rush.
    Hi, everyone...good to see people from the place that basically set my life on its current course. I joined SZF with TailzChao when I was 10, and never looked back as an artist and forum/Internet lover. I was too young to understand a lot of the crap that went on, so my time there was pretty much incredible bliss.
    I began as Razorknuckles, then became Razor_Guardian. I can't remember if I had any other names.
    Possibly my most fond memories come from the sprite comics I made. The most notable was a wondrous piece of crap entitled "The Misadventures of Sonic the Hedgehog". I was 11. I started a STUPID sprite comic. It caught absolute fire, gained tens of thousands of page views, and went on for almost 500 issues. That was one of the best times of my life. I was creating something that I loved, and other people did too. It was a truly beautiful experience, and after that, I never wanted to do anything else other than be an artist. Ever since, I've kinda been searching to relive that feeling. I think my manga can accomplish that. Also, I have dozens of discs with data from my ancient computer, and TMoStH MIGHT be all preserved. That would truly be something. I would probably have to share it, in that case.
    Aside from the comics, I was quite active in the Sonic discussion sections, read fanfics and other comics, participated and created TONS of roleplays (GOD those were fun for me), kept up some sprite and animation commission shops, generally chatted around, and wrote my own fanfictions. By 2007, I thought I was pretty hot stuff. I had accomplished a fair amount as a member, and SZF was the only site I really cared about.
    And yet, when Sonikku gave it up, I wasn't horribly crushed. Perhaps it was the depressing gradual decline the forum had been undergoing from all the hacks. I was very sad, of course, but I moved on very quickly. I had several other forums I frequented by that point, and a steadily rising Youtube account that now occupied the void SZF left. None of the forums came close to the grandeur of SZF, though. None...until Sonic Stadium, eight years later.
    People I remember....this might be rough. I was so damn young. I apologize to all those who remember me that I don't shout out.

    An AMAZING artist who did commissions for people, at one point doing all their characters PERFECTLY in the Sonic Riders style...AAAGGH WHAT WAS YOUR NAME!? (It'd be super awkward if it was one of the above people)
    -
    Oh, no....no, no...I had so many close friends...how could I forget their names!? So MANY people who made my day-to-day not only bearable, but warm and happy. And I forgot them. This feels...evil. I kind of feel like I let them all down. 
    I'm now 21, and a fourth-year music major. Funnily enough, music and composing were pretty much the only things I WASN'T involved in during my time there (aside from my beginnings with trombone). Now I have a position as game composer. Also a major life thing that SZF never saw was tricking. People probably would have flamed killing invisible ninjas anyway.
    I love you all. Time to look through those old CDs.

    I kind of am, I definitely recognize a fair bit of game music when I hear it (plus I almost always like to put on video game OSTs in the background when I'm doing work too lmao)

    Thank you for your efforts!
    Haha. Music tends to stay pent up in my head. I also did listen to it a bunch.
    Are you big on gaming music?

    No problem! I'm actually surprised you were able to get it as accurate as you did in your piano rendition after that long since hearing it.
    Glad my knowledge of video game OSTs was able to help!

    Hi there. I was a member of the Sonic Zone Forum back in 2004. It's been a long while ago but I can't forget about the strong community there. I remember going on that site everyday. I remember the mods and several members. I remember many long lasting topics like Word Association, Caption the Avatar above you, Ask Knuckles The Echidna (and other characters) and many many more. My username was Popcicle7 at first, then I managed to save up 500 rings (remember those?) to change it to the way cooler Blitz. 
     
    I'm a very nostalgic person, and although it's been so long since I've been part of a Sonic forum, I value things from my past so much, and it gives me so much joy to reminisce with people who were a part of the same things. I remember SSMB being mentioned on there a lot, and I'm glad to know that at least this website is still around. I hope I can find a few people to reminisce with.
