Hello, been a long while.

@  Ishapar : (21 March 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I guess people are complaining about the site being dead. Can't help too much since I no longer have a computer, but I will check up with y'all here and there.

@  Wulfsbane : (20 March 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Both really, though she added more to the latter one over the past weekend

@  Shadow : (20 March 2019 - 08:22 AM)

You mean with the Hermione was black all along, or the Dumbledore was secretly gay?

@  Wulfsbane : (19 March 2019 - 08:14 PM)

I am absoultely convinced JK Rowling is trying hard to stay relevant.

@  furrykef : (17 March 2019 - 02:30 PM)

I mostly just check in to validate new users and to zap spambots. Obviously, we get far, far more spambots.

@  randomizer : (17 March 2019 - 12:08 AM)

I pop in every couple of days but I don't really have much to say so I mostly just lurk.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 11:33 PM)

Not looking for anything particular here, but since we got people checking daily, I thought I'd point out that I posted a new topic in SatAM Chat. Show a guy some love and check it out.

@  wildfire : (15 March 2019 - 10:56 PM)

bout the same for me too. I honestly don't remember at this point.

@  Shadow : (14 March 2019 - 01:50 PM)

I been here since I was 14 years old.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:39 AM)

I lurk, too. Sometimes. Maybe us seniors should just meet up at a retirement village.

@  John Roberts : (14 March 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Hiho Wildfire!

@  wildfire : (13 March 2019 - 10:39 PM)

It doesn't help that everything i post on dies. But seriously, I do try and poke my head in from time to time. FUS was family to me for several years. I doubt I'll ever truly leave.

@  Shadow : (11 March 2019 - 04:43 PM)

I did mention before on the idea of a monthly podcast channel.

@  ShenFNWoo : (11 March 2019 - 06:06 AM)

Yeah, it's that kind of thinking that keeps this place dead, mang :\

@  wildfire : (10 March 2019 - 07:42 PM)

I still pop in from time to time. I'm like a professional lurker. As a senior member I think its fair to say I've earned that right. ;) Miss you guys.

@  ShenFNWoo : (10 March 2019 - 07:18 AM)

Rereading that, a lot of that came out completely wrong. But then again, it is a shoutbox, I don't know what the max word count is on the thing.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:25 AM)

As I've said many times before... IF the problem is that they themselves can't do it, then the guys running this place could possibly outsource in some form or fashion to people with more time to help work on this comic here. There's clearly people willing to pay for it, and even crowdfunding might be an option.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:23 AM)

There's really nothing stopping us. All we have to do is want to do this stuff.

 

Dr. Phil once said bored people are boring. Why a clinical psychologist who admits that most of the problem is of a functional nature within a patient's brain would believe this, I don't know, but there IS truth to that. Those who can't find something to try to work with to have or make a good time are usually just devoid of character themselves.

@  ShenFNWoo : (09 March 2019 - 07:21 AM)

I have a friend that's working on our game concept ideas who has major depression and horrible anxiety, 3 kids and a horrible job that takes up most of his day. He constantly gets on some of our team member's cases (even mine) about how there's 24 hours a day, and how Schwartzenegger's motivational speech can do wonders for us.

It's something I'm toying with in my SatAM universe reboot fanfic.

Actually it probably wouldn't be that heinous considering those early promo comics made the same implication.

While my inner Commissar is threatening to shoot you, no it's not really heresy. 

 

Usually his speed is explained by chaos magic, technology/genetic mutation, or just having a super power.  None of these are bad theories or ideas.  The thing is in SatAM, Sonic is the only one with a super power, so it almost feels necessary that his speed has an origin and isn't natural.

Well the rings were designed for him were they not?   Which even the leads to something more on the unnatural spectrum of things.

Magic makes the most sense. The amount of things you wouldn't believe that would become obstacles and barriers to him running that fast is more than you would think. Apparently bugs would punch holes through him once he gets close to 1000 mph, if I heard that one because science video correctly.

Wasn't one of the theories something along the lines of the chaos emeralds gave him the speed.

 

Magic is also plausible though it could also relate the emeralds... so both?

Posted A week ago

It was always my intention to show Sonic's speed as a byproduct of Uncle Chuck's experimentation following a prophecy from the Minister of Magic before the King dissolved the ministry.  With his brother's permission, he would treat his unborn nephew with a formula he had perfected the year before with the son of one of the King's knights (see my name lol).  This treatment resulted in inherent speed far beyond what any natural Mobian was capable of, making Sonic's abilities unique to him alone.  At least that is, until he had children of his own. ;)

 

As Sonic would have been treated with a more refined formula than my character Wildfire, Max's speed would fall short of Sonic's and may even burn out at some point, leaving him no different than any other Mobian.  I eventually stopped writing SatAM fan fiction as the computer I had it all on took a shit some years ago and the website I had posted it all to had been gone long before that.  I never did get around to posting them here, as much as I may have meant to.  I'm actually still writing these days, but I've turned my attention to more original work.
