Here lie the retired aspects of Sonic HQ. You may recall of such sections like the Encyclopedia, Question and Answer and the old news feed. They live on in this corner of the site but as a shadow of their former self, with no more updates to them. The information contained may still be pertinent (save for the Q&A) so they are searchable through the search box to the left. The sections below are also reformed to fit the new layout of the site.
The original Sonic HQ as seen in 1998. It was before known as Zifei's Sonic Page.
When SHQ started to grow beyond the confines of Geocities, we moved to emulationzone.org on Jan 1, 1999. Unfortunately, we only have this screenshot of that layout.
Introduced in 2000, it is likely what Sonic fans remember most in terms of SHQ's layout and design when it was at its peak.
This is the current SHQ Archive. The layout was introduced around 2003 and used til 2011.
SHQ took this form when it relaunched in 2011.
In October 2013 the site was recoded with Codeigniter as a framework for the backend.
This was a refresh to make the site significantly more responsive and update the look and feel.
Another massive refresh this time using the Sonic Mania aesthetic and departure from "checkers"
The retired SHQ Games page lives on at the above URL.
The old fanart page.
The encyclopedia contains 597 records of data that is highly unlikely to be updated. It was last updated in 2007.
