Either way, I'm not sure what to think about Sega just taking things from the wiki and using it in official products. Because to me, all it says is that Sega does not care enough to keep track of their own franchises
You're only realising this NOW?
Anyway, even assuming that my paranoid fantasy that they're stealing our thoughts
is actually true, it's not like this is anything contentious
. A sensible name for an obscure enemy which may not ever have had
an English official name, and a vanilla term for the planet that will stop spastic namefags from spastic-ing at the script. I agree entirely with Clutch: the potential implication that the developers import the occasional sensible
term like this is a GOOD sign. The reason we came up with it on the wiki was because, contrary to DTL's assertions, Sonic lievs on Mobius teh Sanik Tripple Trubble Manuel sez it so gtfo Earthfag
, but arguing about it endlessly was getting exhausting
And I was going to add another paragraph about how the wiki - an accessible, easy-to-use, constantly-updated resource stewarded by people who actually care
about the franchise and
can recite the levels of every single Sonic game in order on demand - is probably a better repository for Sonic information than whatever system SEGA has, compiled by disinterested wage slaves and temps who don't know or care about the difference between a Giant Ring
and a World Ring
. You all saw that train wreck of a description on the S4E1 website, very obviously written by a time-harried temp who had no idea what transpired in S3&K at all. He'd have known if he'd read our wiki, that's for fucking sure
...yeah, I was going to write that, but then I remembered that we're Sonic fans, and we do this
So no-one should trust us with anything.
