Secrets of Sonic the Hedgehog is quite possibly the first Sonic Secrets website. Andre Dirk founded it after finding a game of his friend's that he called Sonic 2 Beta. The site took off and eventually merged with Andy Wolan's site, the SSRG. Secrets of Sonic the Hedgehog was eventually passed on to Knuckles the Echidna who updated twice and then disappeared completely. It was later briefly brought back by Nayr T'nargh and NiktheGreek, but quickly fell into obscurity again after technical difficulties. The only successful revival of it was owned by Rlan under the name Secrets of Sonic Team.
