The Sonic Stadium News Group – It’s Coming, Baby…

The Sonic Stadium News Group – It’s Coming, Baby…

Hee hee! The time is almost upon us! SSNG is soon to be unveiled in a matter of a month! Here’s the lowdown for those that don’t know what SSNG is: There has been some rumours about a new Sonic site emerging. The first announcement of this came from TSSZ, when Sonic News and The Sonic Stadium, both very respected Sonic fan sites, closed down for no apparent reason, unexpectedly.

As far back as last month however, we (being Sonic_Hedgehogs and Dreadknux) happily announced that Sonic News and The Sonic Stadium were not dead – far from it – in fact, they were going to MERGE the two sites together, which is great news for everyone.

This project is still in production, and is due to be unleashed to the public later next month – in June. The name for the new website is called The Sonic Stadium News Group – or SSNG for short.

This will be a Fan Site, but not just any fan site – people who have had small peeks at it have been so confident in its success, they have said it to become one of the most popular Sonic Sites in no time! That’s some praise.

Sonic_Hedgehogs and Dreadknux, being good pals for a long time anyway, decided that there wasn’t much point in a possible competing contest with each other, so instead they are teaming up, and are leaving no stone unturned.

You may be wondering why this event will be very important, and many people talking about it? Well, here’s just a small selection of the new features, and merged features that will be present in the MASSIVE site:

  • Dedicated SSNG NewsDesk, straight from Sonic News, which will get you the top stories in the Sonic community!
  • Exclusive SSNG Interviews with the people who count in the Sonic online community, such as Dan Drazen and Artie of all people! Chats with the greatest that you’ll only find at SSNG!
  • SSNG Specials, where every event is placed into a large feature.
  • A Games section (where would a Sonic site be without one of these?) including info on EVERY single Sonic game, and Sonic Team game created. No exaggeration.
  • Cheats, Codes, Guides, FAQs, and an exclusive Ask Dr. Dre(ad) panel if visitors get truly stuck on something Sonic.
  • The largest collection of images in the known universe. Well, maybe not, but there’s a fair few. 😉
  • Comics, downloads, and much more!
  • Not including EXCLUSIVE items only found at SSNG, such as Sega Sonic Radio (the most popular newcoming Sonic Radio Station), The Sonic Site Awards, and the Sonic Fan Club, where ANYTHING that fans can make in fandom of Sonic – Fan Games, Art, Hoaxes, Fics etc – go, and the largest Fan Fair to date!

If you like the sound of that, think of a really cool looking site, splash a load of blue colour and coolness in it, and you haven’t even got half of SSNG! SSNG’s current page can be found the same way as you used to access Sonic News and the Sonic Stadium:

Keep checking there for the Latest News and dates.

If you are a webmaster who is interested in promoting SSNG in anyway possible, all you need to do is place this HTML in a place that can be seen easily on your website to show the banner. If you are not a webmaster, but would still like to spread the word of SSNG, then by all means place this HTML in your Message Board signature, or anywhere else where you would like to put it.

If you run a Sonic News Station (i.e. TSSZ, or a section of your site that does Sonic news), then please announce this special occasion on your News section also. This would help tremendously. Thank you very much indeed.

If you have any questions, or want to support SSNG’s launch, then please email me back – I’m never busy to chat! ^_^ I just really hope you will enjoy SSNG when the site is launched next month.

Just a side note – on June 30th, it is The Sonic Site Awards, The Sonic Fan Club’s, and Dreadknux’s birthday – The SSA and SFC would have been entertaining the Sonic Online Community for a whole year!

Sexy founder of The Sonic Stadium, and creator and co-organiser of the Summer of Sonic fan convention. By day, I'm a super-fantastic games journalist, el professionale. By night, I'm the mother-loving Sonical Batman. I keep the site ticking, look after the TSS Network, and get all excited about Sonic games so that you can too. May contain nuts.
