    I agree with @Blue Spikeball and @Crappy Blue Luigi on this matter.

    If anything, I think a standard description of the lore/story/plot of individual Sonic games ought to be on their respective Wikipedia pages. Sure, some Sonic games have clearly defined narrative links, and this can be mentioned where appropriate on the related games' pages, without veering off into super-detail hyper-fanatic territory. :)

    I finally finished those last two sections and put it up for basic review. We're one step closer to featured.

    Boy, writing that took forever. The word "labor" in "labor of love" certainly doesn't mean nothing.

    Just a bit of an update: it's currently going through the review right now. The review is mostly done (we've gone through the history section and cleared up some inaccuracies regarding the first game, as well as the development of Sonic 3); we've just got "related media" and "reception and legacy" to review. After it's through GAN, I'm planning to submit it for featured article candidacy.

    Another update: the review has been stalled for a little while, but it'll get done eventually. The reviewer is a busy person, and COVID-shutdown-related shenanigans and the like certainly haven't helped. However, it shouldn't be too long, and the reviewer has committed to finishing the review.

    In the meantime, I've been rewriting the Sonic 4: Episode I article to kill time, and just have to finish the Reception section before I submit it for GAN. Here's how it looks right now compared to earlier this month, in case anyone's interested.

    So we are on Sonic Retro forums ... which has three wikis and a central repository... which counts by its hand fingers the number of volunteers it has ... discussing how good a wikipedia page about Sonic looks ?

    The aim of Wikipedia and the Retro project could not be more different (accepting that they're both online wikis). One focuses on general knowledge as relevant for the public to allow a reasonably strong understanding of the fundamentals - potentially even being accessible to people who've never played a video game before, due to the judicious cross-referencing - while the other revolves around specific, deep-dive archivial knowledge that nobody'd care to keep track of if we didn't.
