Chao Island is a minorly known Sonic fansite that started out in 2000. Created by Scott Campbell, better known as 'Mooncow' to users of the forum, the site was originally hosted by Tripod, until it was shut down for major revamping. Gone for many years, it eventually resurfaced in 2008. Currently, the website is maintained jointly by Mooncow and his friend and fellow admin, Fusion. Members have created animated shorts, poorly made video games, and several fanfics about the misadventures of the users of the forums, and the forums themselves get as much as if not more traffic than the actual website.Tropes have been requested to be removed by site staff due to painting an inaccurate and inappropriate image of the site and its community.
