The Sonic Stadium is 13 Years Old Today!


I thought I’d just make a quick post about this. Normally I prepare a whole bunch of something to celebrate the site’s birthday, but with things in my personal life a bit out of sorts right now I’ve not really had the chance.

BUT. Let’s celebrate anyway. Today is TSS’ 13th birthday. It was on this day, 13 years ago, when I launched the original website on an account… and was using catchphrases like ‘Stay ICE’… and… and, God, I feel really old today.

We’re using this topic on the SSMB as a catch-all for whatever you want to do to celebrate the site as it enters its grumpy teenage years. Do whatever you like – write Happy Birthday, make a video, draw something, record an audio… thing? Whatever you feel like doing. Just know that no matter how crazy you are in celebrating the site’s age, I still think you’re all very special people. πŸ˜› (in a good way, btw).

Happy birthday, TSS!

  1. Congratulation happy birthday from Sonic Stadium is 13 years old of the website from 2000!

  2. I first joined this site when I was 13 or 14,

    I’m 21 now and It’s still going strong, and I am so glad to see. Here’s to you, TSS πŸ™‚

  3. And from those humble beginnings Stadium has become my go-to source for Sonic information. Let’s hope puberty treats you well, and here’s to another strong thirteen! *clinks glass*

  4. been on this site for a while (a few years), but never made an account. I think now that the site is celebrating 13 years, it’s time i made one: so here i go! here’s to more years of TSS

  5. Happy 13th Birthday, The Sonic Stadium!!!!
    I’ve always loved this site for the up-to-date Sonic news and articles, and I’ve known it for about a few years I imagine. (4 or more)
    Sonic The Hedgehog is my hero, icon, role model, and most favorite Video Game Character of ALL TIME!! So I was so glad that there was a site all about him!
    Keep on running, TSS!!~ ;D

  6. HAPPY BDAY TSS. Ha Im older my bday was 4 days ago and I’m 14 double trump haha. ANY WAY, KEEP ON SPEEDING, if u scuse me im going to play new leaf,, Pkmn x and lost worlds at the same time, thank you European wii u.

        1. Really? You saved a master ball to catch a Fletchling? Why not just use a simple pokeball? 😐

  7. Wishing TSS another bright and blue year of super fun events and way cool surprises. And Dreadknux, I hope you can get everything sorted out soon enough and that whatever you are facing is not causing you too much trouble!

  8. It will only be a matter of time until the Sonic Stadium learns how to drive! πŸ˜€
    Happy Birthday TSS I will keep coming back to this site for Sonic news for many years more! πŸ˜‰

  9. I knew I felt something special about today, your not old! Happy Teenage Birthday Sonic stadium, Classic Sonic age!!!!! πŸ™‚

    1. Would that be how old Classic is (or was)? They never really specified his age back in the day, though I suppose taking 3-5 years off of his current age is a safe estimate.

  10. Happy XIIIth Sonic Stadium! I know that I’ve only known you for about 2 or 3 years, but it feels like the full 13 to me!! May this be the beautiful beginning to the rest of your wonderful life (and not just a series of awkward and sweaty moments)!

  11. Happy Birthday Sonic Stadium!!! I hope you go for another 13 years!!

    And this is kind of off topic but it would be cool if Sega released a game named Sonic Stadium someday, though it sounds like it would be a fighting game or something like that.

  12. Forgot to wish ya a Happy EPIC BIRTHDAY TSS! Also congrats on that MCV 30 under 30 deal too =D

  13. To any moderator who sees this, the US Sonic Lost World commercial just debuted! Please make this an article…!
