    The future of Scanf: You decide!
    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 news page!

  3. Shadow added a post in a topic Sonic Forces (Xbox One, PS4, PC & Nintendo Switch)   

    I have my doubts about the third Sonic (if that's going to happen) being Boom Sonic. Mainly because Sonic Boom was developed by western developers and are in no way associated with Sonic team. On that note, did Japan ever get the Boom games? I'm not sure on that last statement, but that might result in Boom Sonic not being the third Sonic.
    Which, let's be honest, is for many people a plus.

  4. Shadow added a post in a topic What's your favorite pokemon?   

    Very cliché, but I have to go with Lucario. Everything about that pokemon appeals to me. And I loved him before I became part of the internet, so I'll grant myself a free pass
    Second and third would go to Froslass and Banette.

  11. Shadow added a post in a topic Regarding the Comics   

    You already had your word. We know, you don't like it. Really, neither do we. But we've made that decision and sticked to it, out of respect for Archie.
    If you agree or disagree, that's up to you. Our decision will not change.

    It could be possible they won't make any more profit of it, but there are more things we have to take in consideration. And Status updates can be made in the top right or on your own profile

    We've got multiple questions about the Fleetway Sonic comics and are currently looking into them. I won't make any promises however. Thank you for bringing them to our attention though!

    I wasn't aware of Comixology, thank you very much guys! But yeah, both Comixology and the Archie App are great ways of supporting the creators of our beloved comic series

  15. Shadow added a post in a topic Regarding the Comics   

    I understand both of your concerns, and also thank you for respecting our decision. However, even leaving the old comics on our site would go against our statement, my apologies.
    A great alternative is, like Tiny260 said, the Archie comics app. That is, if you don't mind paying a few bucks for the comics and having to read it digitally. Other ways include the Archie store themselves, and I saw them pop up occasionally on the Official Sonic Merchandise site as well.
    If you want to read the comics for free, they may still be findable through a google and/or torrent search, though I highly advise you to proceed with caution since not every site is safe to visit. I know that there is one site that has all the comics uploaded as far as I'm aware, and it's one of the first google search results you should come across. Feel free to private message me if you can't find that site, but I'm unable to say it in public here.
    This is for now the only options I can offer you. My apologies and thank you again for understanding.

    Thank you both Alfablac and Thire for understanding. We have no plans of closing the forums, so the both of you are definitely welcome to stay if you want :)!
    Good luck.

    Regarding the Comics
    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.

  18. Shadow added a post in a topic Emulators!   

    you are a bunch of pirates.
    While I don't support the use of emulators myself (they do not replicate the feeling you have when playing them on a regular console), I use them when games are either way too expensive (Little Samson for the NES for example, which is easily over 500 dollars), Hacks (Primarily Sonic, Mega Man and Pokemon) or Japanese Exclusive games. Of my backlog (around 500 games excluding Steam), less than 5% of it has been emulated.
    Recently however, I came across a site that may be of interest to you guys, called Retro Achievements. It's a neato site where you actually get achievements while playing games. It's also nice in the way that it can track your progress. The community on the site sucks pretty much, but I've been playing games that I've already played before on there and I'm not having a bad time. Definitely a recommendation if you're planning to be a pirate anyways. The site currently supports up to the SNES and Game Boy Advance, but the N64 and PS1 are in the works.
    In case you're planning to use it, here's my profile on there:

  19. Shadow added a post in a topic Top 3 favorite Undertale characters   

    Moved it to the Countdowns section because it's, you know, a countdown. I'm smart.
    Ehmm.... Dunno my top 3, but would probably be:
    1. Asgore
    2. Mettaton
    3. Undyne/Sans

    Introduction Thread
    This thread is about introducing yourself, as you would have known already by now. Please keep it general and don't go off topic too far, thanks in advance.

    So basically, my name is Shadow, or Cheery, or Bokxie, Or whatever because I got a hundred of names. Well, not really but I still got alot. I'm 20 years old and I'm from the Netherlands. I'm very related to the gaming industry, with Sonic and Tales being my favourite franchises of all time. Also, as you might have noticed, I'm an Administrator here.

    I'm studying at College currently as Accountant/Administrator. I'm in my final year, though I doubt that my school life will end here and that I'll eventually progress. I work at a Supermarket as a supermultitasker. Well, that's what I call myself, because I can work behind the cash desk, magazin/stockroom, vegetables, dairy produce section and the usual job not to forget.

    I do have video making as a hobby, though I've yet have to start making them seriously. I've been making them for a while, but they aren't the quality I want them to be. I go under the name of the Embodiment of Speed on youtube and such media.

    Because I live in the Netherlands, it's pretty much impossible to get the Archie comics unless I get them from an internet site or the Archie Comics App. I don't want to sound like a pirate, but I'm very happy this site exists, giving me the chance to read those awesome comics.

    The comics gave me a whole new view on the sonic franchise, with awesome characters such as Mina and Julie-su. I'm almost done with the main issues, then I've only got megaman and sonic universe left. However, I didn't read the fleetway sonic yet, and I'm not planning to do for a while. So please, don't spoil it for me. Thanks ^^

    Also, for the people interested, I got a huge library of languages. I can speak a total of 9 Languages, being Dutch, English, German, French, Belgium (It is different from dutch, just not that much :P), Japanese (though I still got alot of studying to do on Kanji, or for the people who are unfamiliar with the japanese language, the signs :P), Swedish, Yugoslavia (My ex is from over there :P) and a little bit of spanish/italian. Not guaranteed that I can speak all languages fluently though.

    That's all I've got to say, if you got any questions, go ahead and ask ^^

  23. Shadow added a post in a topic Undertale   

    Guess who finished the Genocide Route and had a bad time? Yup, the game truly made me feel like a being far worse than a monster (the ending helped with that, considering I'm a believer of the theories that go around about it). And for that, I applaud Undertale. There are only a few games that actually made me feel any emotions, and Undertale handled it very well. You reflect on every decision you make, and care about the future that your decisions have created.
    I don't know if I can really call Undertale one of my favourite games (it has great competition), but I can say it's one of the best experiences I had with gaming. And that's enough for me really.
    Also, these remixes are awesome (hidden in spoilers, mostly because it spoils the themes of the later battles, but not the battle themselves):
