Permalink New article on clans by Payback June 1st 2002

We have a great new article on the site that is about why most clans fail instead of becomming strong and popular. It’s worth your time to read, and I reccomend it if you are planning on joining or starting a clan. You can find it here.

Permalink Enough with the pet photos May 31st 2002

The pictures section is supposed to be for photographs of you and/or your voice. It was not designed for a place to upload pictures of your cats, dogs, or any other pet you have. A few photographs are OK, but there are way too many now. The last 11 uploads besides 1 are pictures of pets. That is just too many.

This is why I ask that you stop uploading pictures of pets. The current ones will not be deleted as there was no rule against uploading them, but future pet photos will be removed as soon as an admin sees them.

You may discuss this in the following JCF thread.

Permalink Jazz 2 Stuff Archive in Progress May 26th 2002

Source: JCF Thread

Quoted from Wakeman:

First of all, I wanted to update you on the Jazz 2 Stuff Archives. Yes, it’s still coming. The final poll results should be very interesting since I’ve been working on them off and on since last fall. I still need to finish school, but if all goes well, J2S should be back on the Internet a month or less. If it’s not up by the end of June, then you won’t see it until mid July, as I’m going to be away for a few weeks on a mission trip to Italy. I doubt there’s any hype around J2S any longer, but I like to finish what I start — even if it does take nine months. I’ll probably also release a level and tileset I pretty much finished one or two years ago — I’ve lost all track of time.

Along with this, Wakeman is working on a new project based on the Good News section of J2S, which many of you probably still remember. So, go to his post to see exactly what he is up to. :)

Permalink New clan AO and break May 22nd 2002

Minmay says:

“A new clan has just started. It is called AO and has a clan hotel, and a clan level (a level that you join to ask DefostAO to join AO). Anyone can join this clan. Also, the clan AO should be fair, and if you join please try not to say bad words. You may E-mail DefostAO if you have any questions. DefostAO’s E-mail address is minmay@interplus.net so if you have any questions, then let DefostAO know.”

[Update] – DefostAO has decided to not start the clan after all.

I(Fquist) am temporarily taking a break from the jj2 community. Please send all messages/news to other people until I’m back. :)
