    Cool, but on the retro skin, the member colors are too neon to be read without squinting.

    Welp, this.
    Retro's pretty jacked up in general right now. I'll need some time to fix it.

    Perhaps I'm a little late. The only thing I'd like changed on the banner is that you use the Sonic and Tails from the S2Beta logo. I don't know why, but I don't like the current one.

    I think we need a Super Sonic[Remix] style of the Rusted Copper now. Only then would this be completely awesome. It's good as it is though, but could be better. :P

    It's still Sonic 2 Beta to me—silly name change be damned.

    All the 'current' logos look scatterbrained. Most likely because it's a grammatical nightmare to try to combine 'Sonic Retro' and 'Sonic 2 Beta' in a title, but also because one is vertical and the other was horizontal in shape. One was colorful and the other wasn't.

    Not the fault of the artist, though—being pulled every which way by a sea of disagreeing voices makes it hard to concentrate.

    Perhaps it'd be easier if the Sonic 2 Beta url/skin stayed the same, and vice versa for the Sonic Retro one. And then you'd have a third skin with the combination stuff.

    But don't change the logo itself over me—I don't want to contribute to its further constant changes, as it isn't my thing to dictate. It'd be a lot easier if it stayed one or another, or a third one in a separate style was made--'cause it's getting pretty silly. (As the guys who made a logo-plastered logo alluded to)

    Also, you don't speak for me, Chimpo.

    Well, there's always the Super Sonic Remix skin (and if anyone changes the logo on it to the combination logo, there will be HELL to pay - I like my forums with the S2B logo, and SSR is the skin I use, so leave it alone =P).

    Perhaps the best method is to have skins with both logos - that way, those who are partial to the S2B logo can keep it while still allowing new members and others who don't care to use the new logo.

    My only gripe, since we have "Rusted Copper" can we please have the old logo on Polished Copper?

    ...WILL YOU STOP BITCHING ABOUT THE LOGO. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA


    On a more serious note, we have a lot of shit to take care of at the moment, and worrying about logo choices isn't exactly one of them. The quiz is still broken, and so is approval... So please, if the logo is so important to you, use GreaseMonkey or something to hack it in.

    Everyone should use "Sonic Retro" anyway!

    :DDD


    Also, I think every skin should have the "Retro" top bar. Otherwise the Wiki is missing altogether..

    Coming in extremely late (and out of the woodwork), but I figured I'd toss my two cents in when my bookmark decided that this was Sonic Retro and not Sonic 2 Beta Page:

    Sonic Retro was birthed by Sonic Classic, which branched off Sonic 2 Beta Page. "Sonic Retro", the name, the site, all of it, is only three years old. Sonic 2 Beta Page is significantly older, one of the earliest Sonic research sites. It's been around a LONG, long time, and both the site and name have a LOT of history behind them. The Sonic 2 Beta Page is the reason several other sites and forums exist today, and I have to disagree with the decision (or trial-decision, or whatever the fuck you're calling it) to merge Sonic 2 Beta Page and Sonic Retro into Sonic Retro. I can't think of an appropriate analogy, but having S2BP and Retro merge into Retro, when S2BP has/had more community-historical significance (including branching off into Classic, which branched off into Retro).

    I honestly think this is a poor idea.

    Sonic Retro should be the Wiki (and a subsection of the boards) and nothing more than that if the website, forums, and wiki are to combine. Sonic 2 Beta has long stood as a research site, whose focus lies within and without Sonic.

    My two cents may not mean much since I haven't been around in a long time, but I will put out the idea (whether it's been said already or not) that Sonic 2 Beta Page remains the name of the site and forums, while Sonic Retro gets a subforum and retains the name of the wiki.

    1. That would completely defeat the point.

    2. ...you're a bit late. It's already done.

    EDIT: Once again, I see bitching about the name. The name DOES NOT MATTER - the content does. I can't stress this enough.
