Amazingly it's now been two years since I first threw a version of darkSpyro onto the interweb. Who'd have thought this place would still be around, eh?

I meant to finish off the additions to A Hero's Tail by today but, y'know, I'm rubbish at deadlines set by myself. All I managed to do was a Dark Gem page, a Dragon Eggs page and a Light Gem page., ah well. Expect more (actual new stuff) soon(ish).

It may have been two years...but the question is have the been a good two years? Or do you regret this site which I think is awful I hate this place. It reeks of Spyro - the worst videogame character of all time! How can you like that little homo dragon? This site should have been shut to years ago, why it is still here is a probelm even Einstein would be stumped over. Just shut it down already, you fans suck!


Just joking, this site is really, really good and thorough...keep it up!

Hey, dark52, what's wrong with the front page of this site? It's all folders and links!

by the way, darkspyro, how'd you get the spyro font in your logo?

I remember him commenting on how he got the font a while back. Forgot what it was called, though. It was a font very similar to what the developers of Spyro used, but he had to color and add special effects himself.

Congrats on the two years. It seems like only a couple mouths ago you announced the first year of the site running.

Yep, I previously mentioned it nearly a year ago. The font I used is called Boink LET, it seems close enough.

Actually, I was the one who asked you for that font for my own Spyro fan site (which I canceled, because I don't have any time). That means I've been here for almost a year now.

By the way: how did you add those special effects to make it similar to thier logo? Did you use an advance image editor (like Photoshop), or something not as complex like Microsoft Paint? (fat chance)

Heh, oh yeah. For some reason you used the html code for a linebreak for your guest name though. smilie

I believe I actually used Macromedia Fireworks to add the effects though I'm sure it can be done in Photoshop just as easily.

Most likely because someone posted in the news post below.

I'm sorry somebody came and spammed here, I came and saw that, I wanted to post something real...not that spam, somebody must have thought they were helping me out with my forum. This was the real post:

Hey Everyone!

Since you love Spyro, come support the fastest growing Spyro forum on the web!

www.spyroforum.com

...see you there, spread the news!

...I posted this message on another popular Spyro forum to amazingly get it stickied as supposed to being banned, that gave me a new idea:

I am here to propose that we should connect all the Spyro forums - Neoseeker, gamefaqs, VU Games, SpyroFansAnonymous, ours, and the 6 (or so) proboards ... I scoured the internet for Spyro forum sites, and now I want to bring them all together.
I already have about half of the ritual posters at Spyro's Neoseeker forums on our site (some have even officially 'migrated' to our site forever) ... our site being the link in the first part of this post...we don't want to like hijack and overtake your site...I actually have an account here now. What we think is that maybe all the proboard, conforum and any other forum account that is related to Spyro could all be affiliated. I mean a cross-forum behemoth, wouldn’t that be cool? We all link to each other, we all know of each other...I honestly thought SpyroFansAnonymous was THE ONLY Spyro forum until I scratched through Google page after Google page and realized there were a few more, bigger than SFA.
I know we cannot affiliate ourselves with VU, Neoseeker, or gamefaqs...but what if the fan-made forums all link and recognize each other, I have taken care and time to bookmark all fan-made Spyro forums so we can retrace back to them later. I think if we all join ranks...instead of compete with each other, we'll show our true love for the purple dragon.
Spyro could be coming back, 'The Legend of Spyro: A New Beginning' (the next game, coming in October) could save him, with AAA Hollywood actors, and more, Spyro may know the limelight again. So what do you day? Will we all join together...or will we all hang separately? I hope we can affiliate every Spyro fan forum online, ...moreover all Spyro sites, they used to be so numerous, now there are hardly any, and it is because a few bad games scared a lot of fans away permanently.
Come on...what do you say to helping me affiliate all the Spyro fan sites...that means news sites (solely Spyro news like darkspyro...not like IGN or Nintendo) and forums? I think we'd strengthen the Spyro community by working for that goal.

Who here is with me? We should all work for this, who else agrees?

If a mod or admin would like to work further, email me at:

sirnealjames@hotmail.com

Thanks!

Who's competing? And I've no idea why you're saying it was someone else who posted before.

I'm sure I could put links to other websites somewhere but I dunno what else you mean with all of that.

Several others and I are making the site...I had a friend over last night who I told about my idea to link all the Spyro fansites, then he came on here through my computer and posted the link to my site. By the time he told me he had done this I came on here to apologize but all the comments were locked, then this morning they were open.

So it was just some idle idea...I guess everyone hates it. smilie

The only way you can make it work is if you have a) great graphic skills (to make a logo and others pictures professionally) b) great HTML and/or other web-designing skills and c) your active and willing to get through days and days of work.

Don't get me wrong, the Spyro series is great. But there just aren’t enough people over 13 that can participate in posting on Spyro forums. This site is lucky to have as many people as it does, and to be as active as it is.

Of course, if you can somehow merge everyone from this site and others onto your site successfully (which is more complicated than it sounds), then you could *maybe* forum an active community.
