  • I found a recolor of Shadow and put up a recolor banner. But...if the recolor isn’t removed in (insert certain amount of days here), are they prone to immediate deletion? And what about joke characters? Reason why I ask about them is because I plan on making a Mary Sue version of one of my OCs, which would also be a recolor (or at least, crudely drawn). I wouldn’t want my future page to get deleted, so I’m double-checking on the rules.

    • As far as I'm concerned, no, not really. I typically mark Mary Sue or Gary Stu alternates as being done intentionally, and I would argue that if you state it clearly on the page, or with the admins, then it should be allowed to stay.

      I have never agreed with that rule personally, I find that a lot of gag characters get swept under the rug because of it, and also a lot of newcomers who lack artistic skill can't show what their characters appear like.

    • Okay then. Thanks for your time! (Would still like it if my first question was answered.)

    • Mary Sues and joke characters are fine. Recoloring images, however, is not okay. We don't really care if your character is supposed to look like a red Sonic as long as you try to draw him yourself. As far as our policies go, art theft is not allowed in this wiki.

      In these cases, only the recolored images are removed, not the entire page. However, failure to comply with warnings regarding the recolor could lead to the page's deletion.

  • Hi there! I'm working on Jimmy's backstory right now, and I was wondering if you have a place in mind for where Opfer Biologic Industries is located.

    Also, is it okay for me to mention Dr. Opfer (I assume that's the name of the "mildly corrupt scientist" mentioned here) doing some things, e.g. hiring someone, finding the person whose soul went into Vulcan-18, etc.? If he were up for adoption, I would adopt him, but I certainly don't want to steal him from you.

    Thanks in advance! :)

    • Honestly? Go right ahead, feel free to use any scientist you want, I will give you a heads-up though: Opfer is the German word for victim, so maybe not Dr. Opfer.

      As far as where they are located... they're sort of world-spanning and broad because a lot of their experiments are questionable in legality, let alone ethics, so feel free to have Jimmy and his background located where you want.

    • Wow, okay, thanks! (And I'll come up with another name for the scientist.)

  • Hello. As you see from the title, A new user "editor" kept making an unnecessary edit on my Sonic Game; Sonic Riders: Unlimited. It was not a grammar issue either, The user kept changing one of the consoles I placed from the Nintendo Switch to PC. I was sure it couldn't be an admin since the user kept changing my chosen game console and going against policy. 

    The user's name is Mahimex. I hope you can stop these changes because whenever I change them back to my edits, the user keeps changing them to their edits.

    Thank you for your time.

    • I have checked, which is the entire reason I put the protection up on that page as well as giving him a warning. As I said, those edits were not severe enough to warrant an immediate ban, nor did they go against policy aside for the no editing other people's pages without permission side of things.

      Okay then. I hope it at least it'll keep them at bay.

  • Hi! Like the title says, I need some help figuring out precisely what's going on with the Smuggler's Alliance, a faction that you seem to have created.

    Setup: When I adopted Bopha Channary, I thought that he was the only character who was part of the Smuggler's Alliance, so I treated it as if it were my faction. The only change that I made on his page was to change it from being an interstellar faction that was local to one dimension to being an interdimensional faction that was probably bound to one planet. However, I just discovered that one of your characters, Kurt the Shiba Inu, is also a member of the Smuggler's Alliance, and his history requires that the Smuggler's Alliance be interstellar. This causes conflict between the scope of your Smuggler's Alliance and my Smuggler's Alliance; also, this makes me think that there may be other discrepancies between our versions.

    This leads me to what I wanted to discuss with you, which is: Can we figure out precisely what the Smuggler's Alliance's scope is, figure out any other discrepancies between our versions of the Alliance, and maybe create a page for it, so that these sorts of problems don't come up again?

    (If you happen to be online at the moment, we could discuss the changes in a wiki chat—maybe this one, since it's pretty much always empty and I'm not on Discord—and post the results here, as the discussion may get very space-consuming. Otherwise, we could do this the normal way and have the whole discussion here.)

    • Well; in my mind, the Smuggler's Alliance isn't really defined into a single aspect. Smugglers could be importing between worlds, between dimensions, between countries... if there's a profit to be made by sneaking things through borders and avoiding detection, then there's probably smuggling groups running that business.

      The Smuggler's Alliance is sorta like a glorified thieves guild; so that all those that seek to join can if they make the grade or meet certain challenges. It gives them access to legal assistance and some level of entitlements; like a trade cartel, and also allows them to interact with each other in ways that are less about direct competition. Also means that conflicts between members aren't going to result in everybody killing each other and there's an entity that is capable of at least balancing them out.

      That's how I see it, and I think it would be fairly easy to incorporate both your ideas and mine into the faction; even if it's literally just dividing it into "you focus on this portion, I focus on the other". In fact; if you want to work on a page for them together; I'd be more than happy to work in such an arrangement, and just rework Kurt to suit the new combined idea.

      EDIT: As justification for my theory: some things will be hard to acquire in certain universes, but might be easier to acquire in space. So; say somebody has an interest in Black Arms tech; or maybe things from the Death Egg or A.R.K. Now, some dimensions might have thriving trades in those markets, but it might be easier to acquire those in space, such as on a Black Comet or on the space stations themselves. Also includes locations from the spinoff games like the Twilight Cage, which is both another dimension and a location in space. There's aspects of both dimensional and interstellar that we can work with.

    • Wow, that's awesome!

      Bearing what you said in mind, I'm going to start thinking about a draft for the Smuggler's Alliance article—which I will post here once I have any cohesive aggregation of ideas in prose form—and maybe you can tell me what you think of it once I'm done!

  • yeah sssooo my article is going to be deleted but i think i meet the standards help would be great please

    • I'm not Flash, but I think you're safe, and I removed the "does not meet standards".

      Get his opinion, though.

    • ok thanks man

    • Well; I can certainly say that it meets the standards. Some parts of it I can understand people having issues with; such as the nature of the sprite (namely; it's a very compact pose, and blown up to a point where you can see the individual pixels; not to mention the pose makes it hard to see the sprite edits that distance it from being a simple Sonic recolor with clothes). There's some grammatical issues and a few layout things; but that's neither here nor there.

      In short, I'd say it's totally fine to my view; but you might need a better image in the long run. I'd give it a shot; but my sprite work is nowhere near what it used to be.

  • Pretty much what it sounds like: I noticed the character Bopha Channary on your Character Adoption page, read his page, and found him interesting enough that I would like to adopt him. Would you mind if I did that?

  • Whats with the poll? What do you vote about? Does it change or it is always about users?

    Another question, how many users are there now since people have been blocked for infinite or a large amount of years or they have been inactive? I know there are 111, but I can't believe there is only not much people (should've been thousand people here).
