Pardon the Hiccup

Well, it only took a week and a half, but we’re back online! I want to thank you guys for your AMAZING patience here – we had heard comments for months about how sluggish TSS was becoming, so we decided to do something about it. As you can see, the site’s loading a lot quicker now, so we can resume our usual, mental, Sonic fanatical service. Yeah! High five!

While some of the slowdown problem seemed to be with missing entries in the database (leaving WordPress to FOREVER check for the existence of such entries), there was also issue with the site’s design, that I introduced on TSS’ 10th Anniversary. I’ve taken the liberty to tweak it a bit, which has done the trick. What do you think? There’s still a ways to go – some archive pages look a bit generic and I’d like to get a link to the SSMB up there somewhere – but you get the gist of what I’m trying to do. I quite like the dropdown menu. Very nice.

So it’s a good thing we decided to do this now, when the Sonic world is but a dust bowl of news and information. I have a SNEAKY FEELING that this won’t be the case for much longer. Stick with TSS for all the latest news, information and ultimate fandom.
