I have had it mentioned to me that
a) people are, in fact still reading this, and
b) that some of said people would like to have a certain section of the site restores to its... well, if not the primacy and/or glory it once held on these not-actually-hallowed-at-all pages, then at least restored.

I speak of course of the magic "H" word, "Hoaxes". The hoaxes from the self-submitting Web 2.0 reboot of Sonic Vegemite are of course still available here, but we're speaking of the old, dusty archives here.

I'm going to be honest. I was very picky during that time, and yet, not picky enough. A great deal of the submissions I inexplicably decided to place on the page at the time were, looking back on them, awful. Like, really, really bad.

So maybe I could put up some, even the bad ones, if only as a file depository. Maybe I could comment on some again, even. I am doing, somewhere in the depths of my free time, a site redesign, and maybe there could be some inclusion there.

I think two things really ended hoaxing: 1) 3D games and the requisite step up in effort and talent required to convincingly Photoshop in 3D rather than sprite editing, and 2) modding. It's really not that impressive to have a hoax saying "oh look, here is Amy in Sonic 2" when the response will be "yeah great, here is a ROM hack where you can actually do that". I guess anyone who wishes to hoax, really, could start up again on Sonic Mania (and that, in itself, is worth discussion) and just hope that they inspire the inevitable mods rather than imitate them.

If nothing else they would make good Twitter images.

Which gives me an idea...
