The community aspect of Sonic 2 HD is extremely important for us, even if it's quite obvious that at this moment, S2HD Staff members must work independently from the general community itself, for a moltitude of reasons which include Art coherency, speed, program sharing & decisions which would otherwise be dispersed by the mixed inputs and feedback received on every WIP stuff. Quality is S2HD #1 priority, and to achieve that quality the entire Staff is reworking (We're really close to completion for some areas) literally any of the past art, leaving the database more like a "Desired Contributions list", then a real update on our current status. Said this, that must not be misinterpreted as the community should be waiting for us to be done, because if you are an artist, love S2HD as we do and prove to be up to the job, you will surely reach our needs, even by concepts. And if you're unsure on what to contribute you can easily reach one of us to ask directions. "Where there's a will, there's a way".
