@  furrykef : (25 May 2020 - 09:38 AM)

I can handle it, but why do you want to delete your account?

@  Lito290 : (24 May 2020 - 09:02 PM)

How does one request the deletion of their account?

@  VHS : (21 May 2020 - 04:04 PM)

I gotta join that then

@  Shadow : (14 May 2020 - 01:17 PM)

Sure is. A lot more lively than here.

@  VHS : (02 May 2020 - 08:31 AM)

Oh shoot there's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 06:58 PM)

It's a disagreement between two people...n judging what goes on in there sometimes that's a very apt description xD

@  John Roberts : (25 April 2020 - 05:34 PM)

What's a Discord?

@  Nex : (25 April 2020 - 04:15 PM)

Activity is spread across forum, discord 'n the site chat room. There's life, it's just hiding under different rocks :D

@  RedAuthar : (25 April 2020 - 04:13 PM)

It's still slow. We ain't dead. Just close

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Wait, I thought this place wasn't dead, it seemed active

@  VHS : (23 April 2020 - 11:20 AM)

I LIVE

@  wildfire : (22 April 2020 - 10:57 AM)

Ya know John, I wouldn't be surprised if it was me. At least I'm a bit more active these days

@  chief : (20 April 2020 - 05:24 PM)

Discod stays going pretty good

@  Nex : (20 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Is the Discord busy? Still trying t figure out where most of you monkeys hang out.

@  MauEvig : (19 April 2020 - 07:58 PM)

Well, I'll be chilling on the Discord. :)

@  John Roberts : (19 April 2020 - 12:32 PM)

It's just you, Wildfire. You're killing us mate!

@  wildfire : (19 April 2020 - 09:01 AM)

To be fair, there are more rapid forms of communication these days. The Discord server sees a far bit of attention. I remember the IRC too, but that's dead last I looked

@  MauEvig : (18 April 2020 - 08:10 PM)

A shame. And here I'm finally getting back into the spirit of everything Sonic. Well maybe we just need to liven things up. :)

@  furrykef : (18 April 2020 - 06:38 PM)

The forum's pretty dead at the best of times, really.

The guy responsible has also been banned from SAGE apparently.

 

This isn't good; if for some reason people start thinking "Sonic game = malware", Sega may get stricter with their Sonic IP rights and start cracking down on fangame devs and ROM hackers.

 

That being said, Sonic 2 HD originally had some bad coding that made malware detectors think it had some keylogger (it really wasn't a keylogger, just bad programming) and the project got some heat because of that, and Sega didn't react at all to that incident. (The Sonic 2 HD that was restarted relatively recently doesn't have any of these issues, as far as I know.)

 

Also, the ROM hacking community and Sega (at least Sega of America) have some ties... I've been told that Aaron Webber (RubyEclipse) was a longtime member at Sonic Retro before he was hired by Sega, so hopefully this will blow over soon and be remembered as just one specific dev being a douche.

I doubt Sega will get stricter with their IP as the community has been hammering this game for the past 3-4 days on it. A lot of people know the fan games have been pretty good and a lot of people will see how the fans have been denouncing it.

This will most likely be the case.

 

 

 

I wouldnt be surprised if this developer was also trying to secretly install a bitcoin miner too

Yeah, those things are the rage recently. Fortunately, they tend to be easier to detect than other forms of malware since they use up a lot of resources, the GPU I guess in particular.
