Dreadknux’s Diaries: The Kick-Ass Relaunch

This is a series of personal blogs written by Dreadknux during the formative years of The Sonic Stadium. It chronicles significant events in the website’s early life.

Here I am, uploading all the files through CuteFTP into Angelfire, taking bloody ages because there’s so much new stuff to upload. Then I realise that I have no more room. ARGH! I was in panic, I had one night to upload all my things. Then I noticed Topcities that did 150MB of space. Crikey! I signed up, uploaded, and the day was saved!

The new look Sonic Stadium was launched on my birthday as well. Man was I proud! It took me six months, but I finally got the whole thing sorted! There were many things I had thought of but canned. One was a frame – I actually warned everyone on the tester main page that this would have a frame. But thanks to the top menu below the very top picture, and a little alteration of the main page, I decided it wasn’t necessary after all.

This was the main page on launch. It was cool, but after a month, I decided to change it for the better. Now this site is perfect(ish… alright then, it isn’t. Hmph!) 🙂
