What do you like most about Sonic HQ?
According to Google Analytics, most come here for the comics information but I know that can't be all. Is it also for the nostalgia of the site? Music? Something in the HQ Archive? Please let me know!

Nostalgia. Just nostalgia of Sonic's glory days.

Nostalgia... I just started reading the comics again from the very beginning because I had stopped around issue 101. Finding the issues back then was hard because my local comic shop closed, and the nearest place to get the comics was a half an hour ride. As time passed I forgot about the comics, but during this time I used to come on HQ for random stuff. I liked looking at the fan art, liked the music, and downloaded the wallpaper and stuff. Used to go on the forum too.... I think it was during a time when the site wasn't doing so well that I had stopped coming here... Can't remember it clearly now it's been so long LOL... But just yesterday I remembered HQ when I started reading the comics again... I'm probably the oldest person here right now 29 lol... I must say the site looks so different now but I like the look :D...

Awesome to hear! and welcome! If you really want to get a shot of nostalgia, you can enable classic mode in your settings panel. (The settings link is on the side) Of course, it's not optimized for the newer way of showing content these days but it's still neat to check out.

Yeah I may just do that... :) I was looking at the old archives merchandise section... I tried looking up the stuff on E Bay and can't find a thing... All that stuff is rare now... It's hard to believe it... And the comics especially, not much on there either...

Hi! I just stumbled onto the site while searching for a Sonic web comic I really enjoyed back in 2001. I was surprised to see that Sonic HQ is still running! Shame that there isn't much forum activity though. I was last here around 2009 and saw that there was still forum activity.

Welcome! Yeah activity isn't so hot here. I am working on a big site update really soon tho that at least will attempt to fix some of that. It's much nicer.

Wow, this place looks so different now; it's nice. This site is one of the first I remember ever visiting. I'd comb through the sections for little known details about the sonic franchise, before I knew of Sonic Stadium, or wikis were a thing this was the place to start. The cartoon and game sections where what got my attention most often. The pages on Sonic R where detailed enough to serve as a faq guide, and This was the first time I read about SegaSonic Arcade or got to hear oddities like "They call me Sonic" and "King of the Ring", not to mention the "Before SatAM" article.
Anyway I just had a twinge of nostalgia hit me, thought I'd stop by here after visting Lemmy's Land. I'm happy to see this place still kicking.

Yeah, I intend to keep the old stuff around too since I get nostalgic myself (Like here for example)

I hope to make the music section even better soon.

Sonic stuff and fan fun, New Concept Teaser came out have you seen?

This is the biggest Sonic-related data base I've ever seen!
Also I liked your archives and links directory, because I like browsing old Sonic fan sites for some reason xD

Sonic HQ was always my go-to website for news and such when I was younger. Spent tons of time going through the comic scans as I never had a subscription for the longest time. I still find myself making my way to the archive from time to time. It inspired me a long time ago to create my own Sonic webpage. It was and still hasn't been finished, but periodically I will work on it hoping one day it will be complete. Always preferred Sonic HQ to Sonic Stadium or other sites. I remember when the MoFo forums had a decently-sized community of fans if memory serves right.

Yeah I plan to keep this place running as long as I can even thought right now I'm really the only one who updates it. I'm also more of a developer than content writer so I don't really care to reiterate too much what other sites are saying so I've been sticking to more comics and music.
The MoFo did have a good run but at some point got disconnected from the site because the was stagnating but that lead to the board not getting as many new members and ultimately killed it. It still exists here though
