The J2O staff wishes everyone a happy new year. May the community prosper in 2004.
According to the topic here, Shadow GpW has officially announced the first Jazz2Online Capture the Flag 4on4 clan tournament. While details are not yet fully available, plans are beginning to form. From the post:
Welcome to the very first Jazz 2 Online World Championship CTF 4on4.
First of all: We are currently working out on some good and fine rules (http://gpw.gamepoint.net/bla2.html). The rules are far from done, it also needs some favomaps and needs some user rules imput to fine-tune it all for your needs. Give out your call and we will talk about it, how you want it. Your voice is our change they say
Ofcourse we have an IRC Channel. This one is at QuakeNet (#jazzjackrabbit) easy to remember and easy for the people that aren’t known of it. Because in this tournament we need your ip’s to validate if your not a merc/fakenicker. And actually play for a different clan or team. We will look pretty strict on it.
We will also look for CupAdmins and/or extra Supervisors as a help for me and the Jj2 scene. This will be announced how/what and when later on.
Final thing is. What can you win from it is pretty neat I say. You don’t only win the offical title. But the winning team can also win some JJ2 Swagg and autographs of Cliffy B and Arjan Brussee. Now thats cool isn’t it?
So when does it start? We expect to start this in march. But it can also be a tiny bit later. Depends on the people that gives me the swagg.
A new forum has also been created for this. You can view this forum here. Finally, there is also a logo contest; you can read about that here.
I am posting this to welcome our newest J2O administrator, Violet CLM, to the team. Violet will be administrating the entire site, especially the downloads section. His trial (which was accidentally way longer than it was originally intended) went quite smoothly and I’m sure he’s going to do a great job. So, everyone give a warm welcome to Violet!
You may have noticed that the JCF was down for a few hours this evening. This is because iCeD has just upgraded the JCF to the latest beta of vBulletin 3, the Gamma version. The layout has been revamped and there are still a number of bugs to be worked out, but it so far looks pretty good. Sort of.
Be sure to thank iCeD for his mastery of maintaining the Greek alphabetic system on the JCF.
Any issues you have with the new version (besides the layout) can be posted in this topic, which is the same version from the last upgrade:
It slipped by and nobody was informed about it. But our JJ1/JJ2 lead programmer got married at 18 September 2003. The news is now a bit old but I thought it was important to at least let the scene know what is going on with the old staff.
The complete Jazz 2 Online & Jazz 2 Community Forums congratulates Arjan and Saskia Brussee with their marriage.
Eat your lima beans, Johnny.
