Hi there, I've noticed all the "Classic" characters introduced since Generations have been separated to their own page instead of just being put on the same page as their modern counterparts.
Since it's been decided to start the classic separation from Generations, why not go as far back as Sonic 1? As in, every game before Adventure would be considered Classic as well as the Classic events since Generations.
This would make it easier to distinguish the classic and modern eras, seeing as the Classic Sonic now has the exact same design as Sonic pre-Adventure.
It seems like it would make more sense to completely separate the two eras is all.
It is because the Classic character introduced since Sonic Generations are not the same characters as the mainstream characters. They are past versions of the main characters from another dimension. These characters have been proven to be independent character since Sonic Forces retconned that Classic Sonic was an alternate version of Sonic. However, the main characters still have the same past they always had, which means that they do not need to be given their own pages.
I doubt it, they've dodged on verifying themselves. Plus, why are they asking for suggestions on SMA episode 3? Animation takes a long time to do, they're not in the stages of development where they could ask for suggestions. Sega is a big company, they must've known they'd need to verify themselves if they're gonna step into a Sonic community.
I agree. But if he is legit, I imagine his inbox to be full of fanmail to the point it might take awhile to respond (Im guessing @SNN_wiki has sent a private message to @sonic_hedgehog on the matter?) Which could be the same case if he turns out to be a fraud. If he is a fraud though why go through the effort to pose? His questions arn't exactly worming around for anything he can use against us.
Which is why I'm wondering if it's possible to ask Wikia if they can check his credentials for us. After all not only are their Wikia code of conducts against fraud but I doubt Sega's legal team would allow it as well even if it's as minor as someone on a fan site.
As best to my knowledge, our Twitter hasn't contacted them. If they have the time to be here, they should have the time to verify themselves. As for why they would do this, either attention or trolling, it wouldn't be the first time someone's tried to dupe us about official information.
I have no idea if Wikia can do anything to verify the account. I don't see how they would know if it's real or not.
I do not know who is in charge of SNNs twitter account, I think it's DeCool99. If it is him we could ask him to send a private message to @sonic_hedgehog or @RubyEclipse to ask for verification. I do not know if Twitter has a PM system as we're not asking them to proove it publicly if they don't want to.
As for Wikia, well I do not know. I am imagining their legal team getting into contact with their legal team but thats just how I fantasize it, I figure they may have ways to look into it and sort it out.
I myself believe he could be real-deal but will admit I'm growing a bit suspicious myself, but rather see if we can get verification through more direct means than call him out on it and ban someone who don't deserve it.
Sorry to butt in, but I haven't sent any messages to the official sonic twitter or Aaron Webber (and DeCool hasn't either), since it's almost 100% likely that it isn't the real deal. Wikia also can't verify that it's fake since lots of people make fake accounts for things. Wikia can only verify that accounts are real if the accounts in question are (generally) for community reps from companies who contact wikia first.

well crud. Now I feel stupid for believing he was actually the real thing for a second.
To be honest I'm more "not sure" than believe legit or not. I guess if he was the real deal, @sonic_wikia would confirm to us on Twitter or grant as verification at least before second post. Whenever a casual twitter post or a private message.
But would be embarrasing if SNN got roasted on Twitter by Sonic for being unfair.
True. They left a comment on one of my discussions concerning the Mania Plus leak and documentation on this wiki with the kind of snark that sounds like it'd come from Aaron Webber. At the same time though, I find it suspicious they'd be bringing attention to an accidental leak.
He left a nice comment on my "make a badnik thread" which I thought was nice of him, but also he sort of push with the Sonic promoting on various other threads which I don't think he needs to. It makes me uncomfortable to think he's here for business than just to socialise. Trying to advertise Sonic to us is like trying to sell a chair to someone with no legs. We're already consumers, what more do you need?
By "our" he could be crediting the people who made the content that he presents. Though it could be possible Aaron Webber has employees or colleges who help him manage the social media.
Right now, I'm writting out a thread-opener for his Message Wall on validation matters, but I won't post it now because I'm gonna go to bed soon. I would find it scummy of me if I demand such matters and log off afterwards.
I left a message for Aaron Webber on my personal twitter, although I'm not expecting a response since he's an incredibly busy guy. Regardless, I'll let you know if I do get an answer (although I'm still 100% the account here is fake).
That's absolutely true, but for an account that's supposed to represent a huge company like Sonic Team, you'd expect them to be a little more careful, or at the very least have fixed it by now. It also seems to be written in somewhat broken english which seems odd, if we're to assume this is Webber that's behind the wheel.
Oh sorry bout that I think it’s the way I wrote it. I was just mad at the time and couldn’t think straight. The truth is I’m like Silver I admit I can b immature and naive but I feel Forces desperately needs justice and that I’m an optimist. Re-open the way thread
