1/1/2018 - Happy New Year
Posted by SolarT on at
Happy New Year to you all and hope you had a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and so on. Here's to a new year, new adventures and more!

2/14/2017 - Site Broken, then Fixed
Posted by SolarT on at
All PHP related coding across not just SVT, but my entire hose went down. Mainly because 1&1 dropped support for PHP5.5 and auto updated us to 7.1 (even though I selected something else at the time). Something that nothing here supports yet, except for the Oekaki Art board. I rolled us back to a PHP version our scripts do support, so everything should be back up and running now. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Also, Happy Valentines Day!

3/10/2016 - Page Layout Update
Posted by SolarT on at
Seeing how these days a lot of people use 1680x1050, 1920x1080 resolutions, if not higher, I felt SVT needed a little fix as far as how it looks in larger windows.

This is by no means a massive update, but more of tweaking to the current template we use so it scales to some degree, and will fill out larger window sizes better.

That said, don't mind any buggy-nes you might see. That's probably me tweaking and updating things. If anything appears outright broken, however, by all means report it on the forums so I can fix it ASAP.


03/02/2016 - Broken Links
Posted by SolarT on at
Out of the blue, I noticed the Art Section and Oekaki sections were both broken. Like, imploded on it selves broken. Took me a while, but I was able to update both. And in the case of our Oekaki program, fix it with replacement software without compromising the existing database.

Not sure how long both sections were down, since I seldom visit them, but hopefully it hasn't been too long.

Splash Screen No More!
Posted by SolarT on at
I nixed the Splash Screen. Something Tails and I have been meaning to do for ages, but always get distracted by other things. Like the work we're doing behind the scenes to update and revitalize the site.. shiney objects were see on the floor, ect..

Forum Updates
Posted by SolarT on at
Sorry for any downtime you may have experienced between 10:30pm and 10:56pm EST on August 4th

I was updating the boards and moving all data and the database to a new location to better organize the server's data, so took me a few minutes =P

Sorry for the delay!
Posted by SATails on at
I've started university classes. In other words, slower going than usual. I have all but #9 and the latest pages of Ghosts of the Future, which I need to download from Evan's deviantART.

An Update!
Posted by SATails on at
So while Solar is kicking his scanner, I'm finally putting up the rest of Evan Stanley's Ghosts of the Future. It's still ongoing so it'll be updated to #10 and new pages will be added as Evan updates them.

As of now, #4 - Old Flames Act 1 is up!

Thanks again for sending me the zipped pages, Evan! You're a good sport.

Scanner Issues
Posted by SolarT on at
Just in case anyone's been watching Chaotix for updates, I do have a new page done, but my scanner isn't working. I'll have it up as soon as I can replace the scanner or get access to another one. Sorry for the delay

New Chaotix Strip
Posted by SolarT on at
As promised to Tails, and mentioned on the boards, I've begun work on my old Sonic Chaotix comic strip. The first new strip in 5 years has been posted. It's not much, but it's a first step toward getting new content here. Hope you enjoy ^^

Side note: I drew Sonic and Tails at work, so the quality is.. Meh.. It was also the first real attempt at drawing Sonic in over a year. Eggman though.. I surprised myself there. My best yet XD

Comic Template Updates
Posted by SolarT on at
As the title says, I'm updating the comic templates used on each comic. This is so the site is more uniform, and I can fix some areas that looked like a blind folded monkey did the scripting.

As a result, you may get a 404 or blank page loading a comic, but if that happens, wait a minute or two and refresh. It just means I'm updating that current comic.

I apologize for any inconvenience!

Also, special thanks to SA Tails for fixing up the old comic template and improving it!

At Long Last...
Posted by SolarT on at
Finally. Every Comic is functional. The majority of broken down sub-sites integrated into SVT fully. A couple, like That Sprite Comic, are still a sub-site and a little spazzy, but at least works.

With that, the site is more or less, fully functional. That doesn't mean we're done though. Phase 1 is get things working. Phase 2 is improvements. Better scripting, layout fixes, site unification (as in, all comics, for example, will use the same template so you don't see remnants of each version of SVT in each comic's page, lol).

Posted by SolarT on at
Okay, after last night's update, many comics were broken due to my FTP program not properly transfering the comics' main pages when I was moving folder structures around to clean up the server.

It should all be fixed now. Sorry about that!

OMG! News!
Posted by SolarT on at
You heard right, FINALLY I got off my backside and did an update. First, let me apologize deeply for my lack of updates. I won't get into details, just suffice to say, Real Life blows, lol.

Anyway, I -finally- fixed the Comic Other-M. An epic decent sized series that was drawn by the combined talents of many artists. Sadly, it was never completed due to a loss of data, but I've finally restored all 30 issues to the site.

There are a few other bad links to comics that we've never got to fix, but rest assured I'm working on those as we speak. Possibly tomorrow they should be set. Besides re-scripting them to fix bad links from older domain names, I need to reorganize the files in an ongoing process to clean up the server.

Anyway, enough babbling. Happy reading!

We're not dead yet!
Posted by SolarT on at
Sorry for the INSANE lack of updates, but Tails and I are still here, and working behind the scenes in between RL stuff. Progress is slow, but we haven't given up or abandoned you.

Outside that, not a lot to say at the moment, but figured you all deserved an update so you know things are still rolling along Keke

Hey guys!

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from The Irregulars!

Happy Belated Turkey Day
Posted by SolarT on at
A bit late, but hope all our U.S.A. visitors had a happy thanksgiving holiday.

I've added a new comic to the Comics section. Sonic Chaotix. An old comic I worked on years ago, that I hope to pick up again sometime. Fair warning. My art is horrible, but none the less, I hope you enjoy it!

I've been cleaning up some things here and there. Fixing bugs and oversights that existed even before the move.

Things like removing Affiliate sites that no longer exist, or updating links for moved affiliates. As well as removing content from the site that hasn't worked in years (like the old News Feed link in the menu).

I've been tinkering with the eFiction skins as well, trying to get them working. I've gotten all the error message to vanish, but stuff is still broken, so I'll leave them disabled a bit longer.

As always, if you come across any problems on the site, post away on the Message Boards.

Good news, everyone!
Posted by SolarT on at
** Solar is wearing a white lab coat and thick glasses, while hunched over ** I've just invented a new type of server!

Actually, I've nearly completed moving SVT over to the new server. The databases ARE INTACT. Yes, unlike most previous moves, I was able to hack the already setup scripts into using fresh new databases I created, and then restored the database data from dreamhost. ...much easier said than done, let me tell you.

In addition, the domain, is safe and secure. As long as this site is going, it shouldn't become an issue anymore.

Now, a server move is a BIG step, no matter how carefully things are backed up and restored, so be sure to post any bugs you find here and there.

Once things are settled from the move, SA Tails and I will begin working on a site overhaul. Things like organizing the site better, updating the automated scripts, or replacing them completely with better systems.

This update may take a while, and will be done behind the scenes. But we'll also be watching the site and maintaining everything. So don't think we're just ignoring things now that we have the move complete!

We're not dead!
Posted by SATails on at
Long time no post. Domain issue has been resolved and we'll be using from here on out. Now down to the serious business...

Due to issues with having hosting with two companies, we're consolidating servers. Domain name has been transferred, so all we need is to change where it points, once we move all our crap to the new server! Things are looking up, even with hiccups!

Yay! Site issues! 8D

Crossposted from the DA Group

First, the eFiction STILL isn't functioning correctly. We're going to be reinstalling it.

Second, thanks for the first batch of favorites, GroxDevlin. Nice choices.

Anyhow, I have found that in December, the domain is going to expire. What's the big deal, right? Well, I don't know if I can get in contact with the owner to make sure they have the ability or even if they can find someone to pay for renewal.

I have also found that the domain can't even be modified and suspect the account was suspended. I have come to the conclusion that the owner has fallen off the face of the earth.

What does this mean? We're going to preempt this and move back to the domain, WAY before the expiration.

The .net domain was meant to be temporary in the first place, as the original .com expired and went into limbo for a few months afterward. It was retrieved and it's been redirecting to the .net.

Apart from having to fix the information for databases and the parts of the site that connect to them, there shouldn't be terrible interruption.

I could be jumping the gun, but better safe than sorry. This site has gone down too many times.

Comrades, we are still alive
Posted by SATails on at
I've turned on the join function to the SVT Comics Group. Check it out!


Site is currently being reorganized and fixed up.
New design is coming soon.
Currently not accepting comics, though you can post samples of comics you'd like to send, to the DA Group.

Happy New Year!
Posted by SATails on at
Currently we're still reorganizing, but in the maintime, we now have a Group on deviantART! Check it out at It's not fully functioning, but it's getting there!

Forums up!
Posted by SolarT on at
Greetings all. Solar here. Long time lurker to SVT, and new to the staff team. I've been a fan of Sonic since 1992 and a member of the online community since '99. I'll be working with SATails to get this place back in shape.

With my first update for SVT. After 10 long months, the forums are up again! Sorry, but this is a fresh reinstall. Old accounts and posts are down for the count, as I cannot currently access the old database.

Proper backups will be kept though, to avoid this from happening again. Enjoy!

This is your captain speaking...
Posted by SATails on at
All three of you still coming here (who aren't bots), I am now in charge. Still in the process of rebooting, but SonicVerse Team IS BACK ON!!!

If you have any questions, the best way to get a hold of me is through AIM. My name is Akari Shigeru TI.

~ SA Tails

SVT Re-Opened
Posted by RonPrower on at
I have all sections of the site up and running with the exception of the forums. They are still having trouble and will be a bit longer before they are running.

The domain is now in limbo please update all links using .net instead. Please make sure to include www. in all links too it seems the server is having a hard time with that set up.

Once everything is up and running I will be stepping down from my active role and Rocky and SA Tails will officially take over their roles.

We are not dead.
Posted by SATails on at
This is SA Tails, and I repeat: dead we are not! We're terribly sorry for lack of updates lately. We've all got lives and internet/iRL woes like everybody else, so that can't be helped.

In any case, there will be a huge site upgrade and a relieving of the backlog of stuff so people can start submitting comics, links, etc. again. It's going kinda slow, but progress is being made.

Having said that, thank you very much, and please keep on supporting us.


Continued Outage
Posted by RonPrower on at
Due to problems that are now out of my control I still do not have proper FTP access to this site. I will try my best to work through the back-log of work I have accumulated. I apologize to all of those that are waiting to see their work and links on this site.

Notice To Those That Have Submitted
Posted by RonPrower on at
If you have submitted a comic, link or anything else to me in the past 2 months I apologize for the speed at which I am working , lot of personal issues have come up that have prevented me from working on the site, most of which are resolved and I will be trying to catch up this week as best as I can. Once again I apologize for these huge delays.

Posted by RonPrower on at
Well if you're here then you've obviously seen the fact that we have a new domain. We have officially switched over to in order to get our website back up and running since renewing the .com URL was taking far too long. I deeply apologize for the downtime in our website as this has greatly set back a lot of our plans and we are trying our best to get everything back up and running. It's going to take some time so please be patient while we work to correct problems and get our affiliates to update their links.

Also starting today we will be accepting SPRITE COMICS! That's right, to kick this off we are going to have a submission contest. Submit a couple comics to our staff will look over them and pick the 3 best to start being hosted here at SVT. All we ask is that you are able to update the comic at least once a week! Get cracking it's the new SVT Sprite Comic bonanza!

The Oekaki will also have continuing contests going on as we get that ball rolling, be sure to check that out as well and help out there.

NEW: If you have clicked on the news tab up top the past couple of weeks you would have noticed that there was really nothing there. But now we have taken a feed from TSS news and have started posting actual Sonic news there for you. This is a test to see if we are going to start our own news department. If you like it please let us know at our message board.

NEW: Updated the staff page just for everyone's reference. Just so you know who is actually still here and who is not, also updated everyone's bios so give them a read to enjoy.
