(This might mostly be Second Life related, but conforms to pretty much any fandom I guess)
EDIT: Since someone on FA decided to name out people from the SL community I am placing this here.
Next time I say I am not gonna name people, don't think it's just A-OK to name them yourself. That's how drama starts.


Please note:
Anything said in this is strictly observations I have made about the Second Life Sonic Community.
This is in no way meant to defame/slander anyone, nor will I be mentioning names.

I am going to state right now, that I still love the Sonic community. There are genuenly still good people within it, but alas, with the good, there is also the bad. Sadly, it seems though as of late, the bad has started outweighing the good. Between the people who "claim" they care about the community, but then turn around and start attacking those who actually care, users from all communities copybotting stuff, and so on, things have just declined in the years since I first joined the community, both on SL and various Art sites I reside on. I honestly feel like the community is split in half, and has no idea how to bridge the rift and begin the process of putting it back together.

Then there has been the daunting question of "How can we repair it now", and this is the only thing that I can think of.

"We can't... or at least not as easily as some would hope."

In the last 6 years (7 come July 4th), I myself have grown after being in the community. I've learned new things, made my mistakes, gained new skills and hell, have even begun making content for Second Life and have branched out into Opensim as well as a few other online games to get a feeling for new territory. It was part of the sane/good/logical side of the community that helped me become what I am today. An artist that loves creating content for users and who also wants to help contribute to the community, but after all that I have seen in the last week that has happened... things being taken out of context, slander against other users and flat out accusations that are not true, it's made me want to distance myself, and I won't lie. I have wanted to in the last few months, and more-so over the last week... but I haven't. I still honestly believe that the community can regain solidarity, regain itself and even rebuild its reputation as a whole. And in hindsight, there have been some friendships as of late that have been rekindled and are being worked on. Which is proof that there is still something left of the community that is salvageable.

I seriously believe that the community doesn't want to die out, I truly do, but the friction is too great to make any progress either way. I hope above all else, that the community will one day become something to be proud of.

Gah, I need to put something here don't I, well lets see...


I am the founder of Sonic-Shift and I have been a deviant for around 6 years now. My old account before I moved was Dark-Amy-Rose
I mainly draw sonic and Anthro related stuff. AnthroArtLovers is my Anthro art group, and love to play video games, I am full of random things, and at times can break out into a hyper attitude, not ADHD just who I am.
I enjoy watching peoples styles of how they draw grow with time and experiance.

And that is about it.

My DA Family (short but I love all of them!)

:iconjasonthedemon: A really cool dude and aspiring artist, I am most welcome to help you any time Jas~


May my friend Loki Blackfang rest in peace In loving memory by LilithCorthaine
