It is time.
After 10 years of community excellence and collaboration - we have hit the wiki's biggest milestone yet.
The Sonic News Network, the world's largest database for the Sonic the Hedgehog series, is now a decade old.
As a user of this wiki for almost 5 years I would never imagine myself saying those words to such a place. Frankly, I would never thought I would be here for this long. lol
From our beginnings as sonic-heroes.wikia.com in 2005, this wiki was no less than a news blog for a Retro oldbie. SNN would be adopted with the help of the co-founder of Wikia and by 2007 we grew a small community of admins and editors.
The golden years of 2010 and 2011 came by and basically the wiki exploded with activity and shenanigans, especially from 'Sonic the Hedgehog', Mewkat14, CesarTeamHYRO, among others. 2010 also called the highly successful Sonic Character Tournament, made possible with the help of the community. 2011 also called for the addition of the chatroom feature as it provides a real time source of discussion, laughs, and drama.
2011 was also the year some of our best known users joined, and are still here today. Just to name a few: MetalMickey272, PKMNtheHedgehog, FreeSmudger, SplashTheHedgehog, ModrenSonic, Bullet Francisco, Uxiea, BlueSpeeder, Journalistic and anyone else who joined in 2011 and are still here but forgot to mention. Apologies if your name is not up here. lol.
With that said, this blog marks 11 September, the day this wiki was created, in Wikia time. Nevertheless let's congratulate ourselves for reaching an awesome achievement on the internet. Good job.
