As you can see, the forums have drastically changed. Welcome to the new SoaH City Message Board! We have been working on upgrading the forums from IPB3 to IPS4 for a while. IPS4 was released last year for public use, however we decided to wait a little while before upgrading as new forums software by the IPS team usually goes through a number of drastic changes during the first few months after public release. We wanted to avoid that to give SoaH City's members a smooth consistent experience.
A lot has changed. The forums are now more accessible than ever. There's a create button which allows you to quickly create new topics, posts, and status updates. The forums are fully responsive and perfectly adjust to your specific display. The friends system has been removed, however a new followers system has been added which allows you to quickly stay up to date with those who you choose to follow.
The standard SoaH City White theme for IPS4 is currently in development. Until it's ready, the default IPS4 theme will remain in place with some slight customization. Highly requested alternative themes are also in development. Stay tuned!
Keep in mind, this is brand new forums software. If you encounter any issues or bugs, please don't hesitate to inform us via the Feedback Box forum so we can address any problems.
Since Sonic Boom is a new branch of the Sonic universe, it gives SEGA plenty of opportunities to basically relaunch whichever characters they want to. So far, we've seen Sonic, Tails, Knuckles, Amy, Dr. Eggman (+bots), and Shadow. I'm fairly certain we're all aware of just how many characters there are in Sonic, so which of them would you like to see make a return in the Boom universe?
Personally, I'd like to see Silver make an appearance with a new backstory. Let's make him a little older (he's 14 right now), why not 16 like Sonic? Let's take out this future stuff to prevent confusion, but keep his epic powers. I think Boom would give SEGA a chance to make Silver the character he needs to be, if that makes sense. Really, he's only appeared with an actual role in '06 and the Rivals games, that just isn't enough for me. Let's bring Silver back!
I'd also like to see Tikal make a return. Not sure why, but I loved her in the Adventure games (even though she was only multiplayer in SA2). I could see Tikal making a good secretary for the Mayor or something like that since she was so good at giving out info in SA1, I think it would fit her kind of well. There's potential for Tikal in Boom, and I don't want to see her character go to waste.
There's my 2 cents. How about you guys?
SoaH City is currently looking for ambitious and driven individuals who have a strong interest in Sonic, SEGA, the community, and video games in general to join our staff team. SoaH City has been around since the 90's and receives thousands of visitors daily for its wide range of content. There are a few positions available. Positions are not paid.
We are looking for individuals to post articles on the SoaH City main site covering the latest news on Sonic, SEGA, general gaming, and the community. News reporters will be required to stay up to date with what's going on. Articles should try to entice discussion with readers. News reporters should also post idle Sonic talk pieces when there's a lack of news. Please include a writing sample when applying for this role and any past writing experience you may have.
We are looking for individuals to post review articles on the SoaH City main site covering Sonic games, SEGA games, and at times other video games unrelated to Sonic and SEGA. You may review games old or new, however it's important that recently released Sonic games are covered regardless. Review articles should be in-depth. Please include a writing sample when applying for this role and any past writing experience you may have.
SoaH City's message board launched very recently and requires a solid staff team.

After being in development for some time, SoaH City's new forums are now open to the public. Thank you for patiently waiting. You may log in/register and post.
Ultimately we decided to start SoaH's new forums using the last working backup of the Sonic Redux/United forums database from the end of 2013. This is entirely SoaH City's new message board, but simply with a head start. Your old Sonic Redux/United accounts from mid November 2013 and before will work here, but be sure to enter your old account information. If you cannot remember your password, you can reset it but you'll need to do so using the email you used on your account from 2013. Otherwise you may contact us at webmaster [at] soahcity.com to assist you. If you were not part of Sonic Redux/United from back then, you can create an account.
We designed the new SoaH City forums with site's history in mind. The unique names for forums have been brought back, as well as the site's unique features. There's a prominent city theme to the layout. Older SoaH users should feel at home.
We hope you enjoy the new SoaH City forums!
