This is one of these news posts that don't really fit into any category and i don't like Multiply Categories when it's not REALLY needed.. anyway.. On we go:
) First 4 Figures have reported (it seams) some small troubles with damages to the Super Sonic Statue. If yours was damaged on the way to you, you can get a replacement from them it seams..
) No word on there Metal Sonic statue.. Like i said, knowing how slow Sega of Japan is on allowing stuff, it might take some time.. Also, i think the recent (and still on-going) troubles in japan MIGHT just slow down some matters.. Unsure on that bit, however, since they should have different departments in different areas.
) Summer of Sonic 2011 is coming up, and as normal, i plan to be no-where near it.. again, sorry if my views clash with too many others but.. It's not a Classic Sonic event, doesn't pretend to be.. I don't have interest in Neo Sonic so it's just not an event for me.
) I have often said how i (and others i have spoken with) think that TESP is underrated as a Sonic site, mostly in favour of Neo based (or including) ones OR illegal ones. I do try to work well with the Community that have classic links but most of the time i just get no replies or direct insults. Since i prefer not to list names of people that have treated me like this, i admit i protect them when maybe, I shouldn't. Kinda shows that I'm better then them.
) you might ask, why don't i put my self out there to help others if i expect others to help me? well.. I think i do. basically, If you are nice and friendly and i have an interest in you or your project, I'll help. Sometimes, i might be unable to do anything but cheerleadering work, other times I'll be able to take a more active part. I don't expect help in return, that would be more doing it for the rewards then for just being helpful (I do alot of volunteering work in real life, in fact, I have a Level 2 CAV (Community Volunteering Qualification) and I'm working on the highest level, level 3. as a Volunteer, we don't expect to get help in return, it's just nice. Some projects i support or help, don't seam to see the light of day, others are completed and go ahead. To me, I would prefer to help a project that WILL go ahead, or shows signs of it going ahead, but I will support other projects to help them go ahead.
) Speaking of Fan Supported Project, i think people aren't contacting TESP to support there projects because: 1) they think TESP doesn't have enough views to bring people to there project 2) they don't know about TESP.
Maybe there are other reasons but i don't know about these.. Really, i would LOVE to have the fan Support section larger then it is BUT often, i can't really post news on what is going on with these projects because I'm not told. Oh, also 3) if there project is simply illegal (even if they try to claim it's not) i can't really officially support it, though i might unofficially.. I don't like Illegal stuff BUT there are times when it's very boarder line.. People doing stupid 'Sonic 2 In HD' games are CLEARLY braking the law (and showing a complete lack of information on the term 'HD') and are often trying to hid the fact they are braking the law.. So i can rarely officially support these UNLESS, it's done in the form of an add-on.. For example, I've mess around with Sonic R a bit, I can (if i wanted) release a 'patch' that updates Amy's Breeze Mk2 into a more faithful Breeze Mk1. Is this illegal? well, kinda yes. Its basically hacking BUT, Like with 'fan levels' as long as i don't share sonic R is self, but have it as a patch that you NEED the original game to play, I'm pretty fine with it (as is most of the companies that make the games).
) I'll lost the thread of what I'm saying and talking about here.. Oh well. I'm working on some great new updates for TESP by the way. Updating game Credits to a new system that is 100% compatible with the search engine, which will be upgraded again (I'm probably going to end up removing the options for searching different sections, cause it's getting to a point then that is more of a bane then a plus.. we will just have to wait and see). Also, I'm updating the system for Lyrics.. This includes ALOT of updated SU lyrics. The ones i got were made by me a long time ago, with help of Bluedude and a couple of references made to other sites ideas of what lines are.. I'm going though some of the songs and noticing the lyrics are a bit off where i can work out what they are saying more now, and in fact, the new ones seam to go against Alot of other sites. Probably cause they don't update the lyrics or put as much care into them.. A good example is the song 'We need to be Free'. There is the Line 'Freedom is a golden bird that lets us fly'. After listening to that line over and over it seams pretty clear that it's NOT Bird and the word 'that' doesn't seam to appear.. it's possible but at the moment, it seams to more be 'Freedom is a golden murrma, let us fly' which doesn't make sense.. people take Bird cause it seams to make sense.. Given the Arabic tones of the Episode and Song, I'm wondering about various flying objects in myth and stuff.. Though the word 'Carpet' isn't there, if it was, 'Freedom is a golden carpet, let us fly' does make sense. Fits with the tones too. anyway.. Since there aren't official lyrics (i don't even think the DVDs ever had Subtitles) But the Sonic le Rebelle DVDs do have Song Lyrics. I'm still debating getting them. I'm also looking for the lyrics, as while they aren't just translations, i can HELP alot. anyway, work will take some time, including some the changes and upgrades to the lyrics sections.
I guess that's it for now..
