    Oh, and if you're really remorseful about your old posts, you can PM me and I can give you access to the archive. I don't see why you would want that, but if you want to, eh, why not. This place is made for you, and by you. Who am I to deny you to your history.

    Test

    Sonic Generations Debut Trailer



    From now on every video link will be auto embedded. Not just Youtube, but also Dailymotion and the like. Just copy the URL in the post and the site will do the rest! Pretty much every site works. It's really cool.

    Stuff like Google Maps works too

    http://maps.google.com/maps?q=pensacola fl&hl=en&ll=30.555166,-87.1875&spn=2.005616,3.556824&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=58.164117,113.818359&vpsrc=6&hnear=Pensacola, Escambia, Florida&t=m&z=9

    The portal is also installed now. I especially like the news ticker, it's always up to date & powered by Google news. I'm currently looking into an RSS thread posting bot which might replace that feature though. This is a script that will create automatic threads from the news RSS feed. That way there's a great automatic discussion possibility on every piece of SEGA news!

    I'm aware of the little glitch in the skin on the portal by the way.

    Rss bot installed.

    Working on Facebook integration.

    The next step is finishing the look of the forum. Once that's done, we're taking this to Facebook and get serious.

    It grabs news regarding SEGA from sources from all over the place and posts it as threads in the news forum. It checks hourly for new news messages. That way the latest Sega news is always posted here, and ready to be discussed as well.
