Guys, we have a problem.

I'm really disappointed in Sonic Retro.

There's been some problems we've been running in to in terms of our quality. The thing is: these problems aren't new, and while they've been at times better and worse, it's been an on-going issue. The rest of the staff and I have been discussing potential solutions to these dilemmas for close to a year. Lots of different things have been proposed, and I want to emphasize that we have really looked at the problem from all angles. However, we have finally come to one, unified solution.

And that solution is to get serious.

Over the next two weeks, we will be rolling out our solution to these problems. A few people may disagree with how we do this, but know that these great changes are something we feel the majority here will get behind.

Stay tuned to this topic for more updates as we reconfigure Sonic Retro.

Um.. any chance on elaborating on this? All I'm getting from the topic right now is "We need to change things.. .. not going to say what, though.. yeah.."

.. unless that's the point of the announcement right now, and you're going to tell us as it happens.

Don't worry about it Marc. You're one of the safe ones that won't be affected by the change.

Yes ma'am.
I don't know what you're going to do, but I can guess it may relate to accounts of certain members and some major work on Retro's structure. Retrialing perhaps? Sometimes there are members who need to get shown how to contribute properly and when I was on my 2nd trial back in January '08, I was very careful.
Sorry if this was the kind of post you don't want.

I wouldn't say it's re-trailing. More of uh..."reeducation"...maybe?

Don't worry, once the change comes, you'll see the change.

I just peeked into the secret thread because I can. This really will be the start of a new era, hopefully things will never be the same again. Thumbs up to Scarred Sun.

Thanks for answering. Like I said, I don't know what you guys intend to do but I know it'd be for the good of Sonic Retro.

Aww, just as I loosened up my standards and got used to the occasional crappiness and stupidity around here. Oh well, any change for the better is a welcome one for me.

Indeed, if you (the admins) think this will improve Retro, I'm fine with it. Well, atleast it provides a surprise for the next few weeks nonetheless.

It can't hurt. I'd be happy to see less dWAHHma.

I'm behind whatever the higher ups are cooking up.

Should be interesting to see.

Yeah, the change is going to be awesome. But in the meantime, let's finish this wiki image/file business. Thanks.
