I was doing my usual business, lurking around the site and updating Featured User today. I had been a little delayed because of various personal problems that caused quite a bit of a ruckus and a distraction. But nonetheless I got it done, and it seems like it's back to lurking and watching the site I love continue to grow and prosper.
....And then I'm told that Bullet Francisco, admin and bureaucrat, has left the wiki and cannot be contacted. Now while I may have had my issues with Bullet before, my first thought is concern for someone who cared about the wiki so much and put so much effort into it. So I go to his userpage to see what the explanation is- if any- and I find this.
So now rather than going to bed, I find myself wondering just w…Read more >
After ten years of being a part of my family and our lives, my dog J.R. was put down... less than an hour ago, actually. Nerve degeneration in the hind legs, heart and adrenal issues, and his right hind leg getting banged up yesterday, meant his body just couldn't keep up with him anymore. In reality, his body hadn't been able to keep up for a while now...
It still doesn't feel real. Even after being told last night that he was going to be put down... even after taking him to the vet with my Dad... even after personally seeing the veterinarian give him the injections... even after seeing his body taken away on a gurney, wrapped up in a blanket... it still doesn't compute. I've already cried and cried, but, it's still just... I don't know... …Read more >
All of this deals with either Sonic Fanon Wiki or real life, but... I truly need someone, anyone who might actually care...
I was avoiding this because it would probably cause me more issues or cost me more. But really... Reputation? Respect? Friends? One way or another, it seems I have nothing left to lose. So, I'm going to lay everything on the table, bias and past transgressions and all.
The first thing that happened this month was Memph, with his parole policy testing. The most warning he gave was coming onto my Xat the night before to suddenly spring this on everyone. No notice, no discussion, no voting. He suddenly made his decision. His test subject was Guyviroth, an elitist snob who gave everyone crap and repeatedly stated he hated thi…Read more >
Before anyone gets upset, this blog involves both me personally and potentially my activity on the wiki.
So, I have a deal with my parents where if I can get all of my classes to 90% completion by the 20th or by Christmas, I get an XBox 360 guaranteed. With this, I could potentially get various Sonic games that would give me first-hand information, allowing me to better contribute to the wiki. If I recall correctly, several members of this wiki's community also play various games on a 360, and as such I would honestly enjoy being able to reacquaint with them over common interests.
However, a few people have told me that getting a PS3 would be better, and there's also the WiiU (though I could wait on that until my birthday), so I want to here f…Read more >
I'm aware many of you probably don't know who "Shelly" is. She's Sonicrox14, one of the wiki's once-prominent bureaucrats, and my best friend. Due to schoolwork responsibilities and having a set plan for the future, Shelly hasn't been able to be on as much as she'd want to be.
But even so, while she may not make such a big deal of it I thought I should make a blog on her favorite wiki to let everyone know that it's her birthday. So go ahead and wish her a happy one!Read more >
