Good day everyone, Shadow here with another update.

First of all, I'd like to take this time to announce that both the Fleetway Sonic the Hedgehog comics and the Sonic Manga will be coming back to Scanf! I can't promise an exact date that it will return as we have to make some adjustments to the site first, but I'm sure this comes as good news for most people.

On to the next topic. Sonic Scanf had been publishing the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comics illegally and we have decided to stop uploading them. Most of our traffic were partly thanks to the Archie comics however, so we unfortunately will have to see many people go. But that's where you come in!

We would like to broaden our horizons a bit, and you as the audience can have a hand in what we will do. What new additions would you like to see on Scanf? What do you first think of when you go to a Sonic fansite? We are looking for additions both inside and preferably outside of the forums, so keep the ideas coming and who knows, maybe your idea will be part of Scanf's future!

We as the Sonic Scanf staff will take every suggestion into consideration and will take a serious look at them. Please be considerate and realistic in what you suggest. Examples like official playable Sonic games (not talking about rom hacks/fangames here) on an emulator are an instant no-go. And while we would love to bring every single one of your suggestions to life, we are still humans with fairly average skills in web development.

That's all for now. Be sure to leave your suggestions down below or at the appropiate forum topic!

Good day everyone. We at Sonic SCANF would like to inform you on an important matter that will affect the entirety of our site.

As many of you know, we have been uploading the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man comics on our website for fans to enjoy for free. Unsurprisingly, this is considered on almost any front illegal, as Archie Comic Publications Inc. is not making any profit from us. While we have been considering alternate methods to assist Archie, ultimately we came to a final decision. Out of respect for Ian Flynn and his team, we have decided to stop publishing the Archie Sonic the Hedgehog comics on our website. It would be unreasonable for us to continue uploading them without permission while they are suffering.

What does this mean for Sonic SCANF? We will continue to be around for now, as the News, Forums and Gallery will still be available to everyone. However, we will suffer a massive dent in the traffic as many people only visited our site for the comics. None of us know what the future will hold for Sonic SCANF, but whenever we know something, we’ll be the first to let you know.

Therefore, we would ask you to please accept the statement and not request us to continue uploading the comics. It would be disrespectful to both Archie Comics and us, and our decision won’t change.

We hope to see you stick around. If not, thank you for your time and supporting our website.

The Sonic SCANF team.

Time flies very quickly, and it seems almost incredible that our site has already turned 5 years old, but it has. For some of us during this time it had become a second home , so we wish it further development , a good community and a stable server :). With the latter, unfortunately, there have recently been some problems, but for now, I hope everything will be fine. Of course, we are always moving forward: we have accumulated quite a few plans to improve the site , which you can see very soon .

In the meantime, we decided to finally release the beta version of our Sonic Rush translation, on which Nekit , RedTF , MrCech , Maxwells and SpeedTH have worked. Download it here , and discuss it and at the same time congratulate SCANF happy birthday on our forum . Graphics (especially in the menu) has yet to be finished, but it is only a beta.

And most importantly, happy anniversary, Sonic SCANF!

Maybe you've heard something about Sonic SCANF already, maybe not, but it's time to do it. As you see, we're making an English version, targeted at Sonic Adventure fans.

Why did I use "Sonic Adventure" and not just "modern"? Because Sonic Adventure formula can be hardly called modern now, but there are quite a lot of people who liked it for unique gameplay, interesting and deep story, beautiful music, and, of course, a lot of playable characters. If you feel that you are one of them — join us!
