Three hundred sixty-five days of apathy.

Post by The Doc »

It's been exactly one year since the home page was last updated, making any casual surfer of the World Wide Interwebs believe that we've all fallen off the face of the earth.

Congratulations, Mr. Matte. Your trophy and one free hentai are in the mail.

Matte is a funny last name. I don't know, it just is.

Nice! And since you're so slick and all you'll set about fixing the rest of the site, right?

Wrong?

Kinda sorta?

I remember Gibbon saying that phpbb is too confusing for him, which is why he hasn't been able to fix much (if anything) on the forum and front page.

I was considering making a topic about this, but I felt I would be walking on thin ice if I did.

Ceasing to be cute for a sec...thin ice? Hell man, that ice has had a whole year to harden back over. The worst they've done to me all this time for my complaining is an embarassing custom title and some belittling remarks. Tch! (plus, i've had more bones to pick than just with the lack of updates and matinence.)

I've mostly kept my mouth shut about it up until now out of common courtesy, a lil' appreciation for convenient timing, and that Gibbon bought a few brownie points for himself by finally getting together something that resembles a near-complete encyclopedia...which as far back as I can recall has -never- happened. With the last couple posts, I was trying to squeeze a few drops of entertainment out of this, but at this point there's no excuse not to want answers. Or, if there is it better be great.

So to that end, GG!, anything you'd like to step to the front of the class and share with the kiddies?

I don't really give a shit about updating the front page. I don't think most other people here do, either.

Deal with it.

I also bet it's still possible to, like, update the front page the old fashioned way.

And I have to say, you certainly live up to your custom title and have earned those belittling remarks.

Also, if not having a web forum that lives up to your standards is cause for apathy, you should get your priorities checked. Good night.

Well, atleast those surfers who consider themselves as being part of the Sonic fandom wont forget about this sites existince, since "the GHZ" has (along with SonicCULT) become known throughout the fanbase as a kinda "old school fan/retro-fag"-heaven, or altrenatively, "noob-hell". A place that many a innocent, blue-eyed 14 year olds, who became Sonic fans through Sonic X, have entered in hopes of sharing some fun discussions about Tails lovelife, only to be attacked by its memebers with a barrage of ink-black sarcasm and death threats, causing them to flee home to The Sonic Stadium and break into tears and depression over this horrendous and completely unfounded abuse.

Christ, you people. Are you just scratching for opportunities to take potshots at Flash, or do you honestly just don't want front page updates? Seriously!

Sorry, Jared, but I've been informed by the United States Postal Service that, upon attempting to ship your package, a rabid lobster got to it, destroyed the trophy, then made off with the hentai.

Please accept my apologies.

At this point I don't want them just to see Flash butthurt.

Hopefully a nice, bright red (for the lobster) if it's been boiled sufficiently.

I always assumed the front page (or at least the Museum) wasn't updated because of the general unfun unplayability of the Sonic games post-Heroes. But the new Encyclopedia seems to indicate otherwise.

We should let Flash do the updates. It would be humorously awkward. Or maybe Gibbon could just post screenshots from obscure Famicom games instead of news to make it less tedious.

To be honest I miss those greatest game/most disappointing/best new boobies/worst game/most surprising of the year lists that GG! used to make.
