Report on removal of dashboard on GoAnimate in 2015

A month ago, GoAnimate removed its dashboard due to customer feedback. Yeah, customer feedback. They simply just want to make GoAnimate more better since the introduction of its new version on September 16, 2013. Here's, from the forum, how the argument went on:

Why did that dashboard get removed? Now I won't be able to catch up with the latest videos that other users make. Can you provide an explanation on why it was removed? Thanks!

And, the response:

We removed the Dashboard in response to customer feedback, and also as the first step toward creating a data feed that will show new and upcoming enhancements.-Mark Deaton (Mar 25, 2015)
This is how it went. In fact, about how can it occur? Well, let's explain. GoAnimate was launched back in 2008, and it implemented a Dashboard. But why it got removed? Actually because of customer feedback, wanting to respect one bad guy who doesn't like the GA Dashboard at all, and "the first step toward creating a data feed that will show new and upcoming enhancements". The first step toward what? Creating a data feed that will show new and upcoming enhancements? What are they THINKING??!? Ah, yeah. Yes. GoAnimate is in fact working on something that could replace the Dashboard, and that thing could see GoAnimate in court.....but never, as I could say.

Here are more reactions here:

RE: Customer feedback -- Not much of it comes through our forums yet, but we're working on that.

RE: Sending a message out -- We're also going to be solving this problem by implementing a "What's New" feed so that changes like this are communicated more proactively.Mark Deaton (Mar 25, 2015)

What customer feedback? I don't recall seeing anyone complaining about the Dashboard. It is a rude surprise when you have the Dashboard bookmarked. Why wasn't a message sent out?

"Русская версия" part 11 - Fan-pirate

As we ship onto part eleven, I just got time to review onto a bootleg release of a popular hack of Sonic for both Genesis and Sega CD.

Screenshot from the menu of Sonic Megamix.

Sonic the Hedgehog Megamix, or more common, Sonic Megamix, was ported by pirates being the only Sonic hack ever released on the cartridge (Genesis and shit called "Mega Drive Portable"). Despite the game not being Russian, the game was also sold in the Russian market. As, for example, the game was ported possibly in 2010s, because Russians are always meant for pirates, or, they want to make money by doing that. Here's a non-roughly translated, first segment from the back of its cover:
SONIC MEGAMIX - is the remake of the first, good Sonic. In the game, not only Sonic participates, but the black hedgehog Shadow and the armadillo Mighty...
 The cover art. Notice the "made in Russia" (Сделано в России) on bottom left.

Yeah, "made in Russia". Obviously refers to the cover art, but NOT the game itself. Also notice the FPS on bottom left of each magazine "picture". It is however, as I could say, made from Kega Fusion, one of popular Genesis emulators alongside Gens.

Look the right of the cover art. The game uses the modern Sonic art, but the game itself the classic one. As Shadow is modern-born, it looks somewhat like classic one in-game. Mighty is classic-born but looks modern on cover-art. So it could have been made after 2010, but not the hack. Its stable version 3.0 (last one for Genesis) was made way back in 2007.

As the story almost "forever" continues, this segment hasn't already finished yet...but better know that you should be away from pirates as this is COUNTERFEIT!!!!
