UK 2nd Half Update

So much mail rolled in, the update has to get a part 2.

***You may notice distortion, bad formatting, errors on new pages***
The new pages SHOULD still be read-able, and the photos able to be viewed. Newgolive demons are murdering these new pages. They must be let alone to break in a specific way so that I can fix them by deleting the bad code. Currently, the code appears on them in a bad area that I cannot remove it from.

This 2nd half is a lot of UK focused items, including more on the very intregueing Sticker Book Modern. It looks like a fantastic collectible for any fan, and the documentation on it just got better with the update. Though where's this "new stock art" it was boasting about?
Getting really in-depth with a detailed item like the sticker book is what SonicGear is all about. Going beyond what other websites may do, and taking a good look at a cool complex item really brings it back to the roots.

Finally seen:
The base to that Sonic lamp shade. It's a bore, but it's good to finally get a look at it. Sort of dissapointed it wasn't Sonic-ish in some way, but maybe that's why everyone always lost the lamp bit...hmm.

Bore of the week:
Sonic cozy robe. TOTALLY LAZY. They didn't even try to make this cool. Mystery manufacturer just bought a license and slapped the first graphic they could find on there. I can't imagine this selling well. It's nearly as lazy as that all black sweatshirt, but at least the 'cozy robe' is an item that's never been made before with Sonic on it...and it comes in a box.

New pages galore:
You'll notice that a lot of the stuff has gone onto new pages. These things take a lot more legwork and difficulty than they used to, so any time merch spills over onto a new page it's always time-consuming. There were quite a few of them this time, but best to spread out the hassle, I guess. There's no controlling it, but it does slow down updates and make them take longer. Yes, it's a 'feature' of newgolive. Ugh.

Spambot assult on the blog:
Thwarted, the chinese porn spammers are now sending multiple bots to spam the blog with stupid comments as they try a different tactic. However, Blogger has (helpfully) added 'mark as spam' option so rather than just deleting, you can delete AND flag it to blogger. Hopefully whoever is behind this gets shut down because nuisance comment removal eats update time.

The update was very difficult this time.
Newgolive making every page go wrong at every turn. Not all of the mail was cleared. Repair update may or may not happen this week. Next week: should see a review of 3in Eggman, and the repair of the pages.
