    For those of you who've noticed -- hell, you have to be blind not to -- drx has graced the community with a brand new prototype version (alpha, even?) of Sonic 2! Needless to say this is our forte, and it's imperitive that we remain the primary source for into on all matters related to teh baeta!

    So, we're calling out to you, the community - help us out! The site is in dire need of updating, and we can't do it all alone. So what we want you to do is post in this topic if you're interested in helping update the site material, and what section you're willing to tackle. We'll also need some sort of contact info (PM if you want it kept private), so we can talk to you about it, and send you the appropriate files. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PEOPLE WHO AGREED TO COVER A SECTION IN IRC - POST HERE TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU'RE DOING THE SECTION! I'm not quite sure how we're going to set up the info for the new beta yet, but I figure if we put our heads together, we can figure this out pretty quickly.

    So, post away!

    I have but one question: What are the requirements? Because I know html and all, but I'm sure you'd rather have someone more in tune with the current events them me.

    I posted in the beta's topic, but I'll do the same here.

    I'll go for it. I think I can do this -- I have loads of free time, stuff and willing to contribute, as you can see in the proto's topic. And I'm taking computer classes, so why not be a volunteer here and apply my knowledge and fanatism? Maintaining and updating the site is eagerness and a honour for me.

    Something I am willing to do is uploading/managing the "Prototype zones" of the new beta, and I have started to take interesting screnshoots in gameplaying.

    This one of most important events ever for the Community, and its developing deserves a great effort and unionship. If you wish so, you can count on me.

    No probs, I could afford any section. I appointed that one because I already had some stufz prepared (I can give it to you if you need). I'm on the queue for all research topics that you can lend me.

    Sonic 1 Rehash - I'm not saying its canned, I'm planning on some work on it this summer.
    I can't help with updating, not enough knowledge in HTML, but here's one part of the site that needs updating and is now in accurate: http://www.s2beta.com/tvpics1.ehz

    The map there has a couple of parts that are actually incorrect, of course this has just been learned. Also we have an answer to the was Tails not implanted yet or deliberately disabled. He was intentionally disabled for that level.

    guess_who: Feel free to make a start on the origins and FAQ.
    Lostgame: I think you'd be good for the summary, feel free to download the html from the page and edit it.
    Ambil: You can make a start on the comparisons section, once again feel free to download the HTML and edit it, unless you feel you need FTP access.

    Yah, I know I'am a trial member, but I can take almost every section, but I would like to edit the scans/video info from the timeline to make it compatible with the new alpha.

    I'll leave the content to people more experienced with this stuff then myself. However if you need an extra pair a hands for php/html/javascript/SQL let me know.

    I'm also willing to mirror files on my own web server if needed.

    I've decided to resign from being a maintainer due to lack of motivation and the fact I think someone else could do a better job.
