Non-sucky version of Mojo returns! 17 Nov, 2003, 04:53 / 49 comments

Good God. Five months. Five. It's always right in the middle of our E3 coverage, too, isn't it? Mojo is at the top of it's game, actually managing to provide daily feature stories and news updates when --blip-- all is deleted.

But fear not. We've wasted some no time in getting back to you with an all new site featuring some additions you won't hate! First off, if you don't have a user account, we suggest signing up. After that, you have no choice but to check out the gigantic Game Database, featuring a lot of information you didn't know you wanted to know. Maybe top it off with a visit to the new good news archive, dating back to 2000 (AKA "Mojo 7"). We'll be adding more games, walkthroughs, and in-jokes to the game database, as well as a searchable news archive, in the coming weeks!

Also, don't miss our interview with Grim Fandango and Psychonauts composer Peter McConnell, and our review of Jedi Academy. And finally, if you're incredibly bored, you can find out who's online reading the site. We'll be heaping more content on in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.

Ultimate awesome X-Treme thanks to DJG, Remi, tabacco, and Metallus for helping get all the code and content prepared! Triple ultimate thanks to Spaff for saying he was going to cry tears of joy upon viewing the half-completed site. ?

    Welcome back Mojo, well done to all the mojo staff for your hard work at getting it back online.

    Looking foward to the new material you guys will be putting up. Oh and the new design is very sexy also ;)

    Welcome back Mojo!
  • MonkeyMug on 17 Nov, 2003, 23:30…
    WOOOO!
  • ZeroXcape on 17 Nov, 2003, 20:46…
    think what you want to... mojo is cursed...
  • invisibelle on 17 Nov, 2003, 15:45…
    Congrats, chilluns.
  • Jayel on 17 Nov, 2003, 15:10…
    Hooray! Hurray! Hurrah! The new design looks awesome.
  • Bobo Donkey? on 17 Nov, 2003, 14:35…
    Wow. This is Smegging brilliant. (and for some strange reason I expected this to happen the moment I typed www.mixnmojo.com. This certainly is a wonderful day)
  • Bobo Donkey? on 17 Nov, 2003, 14:58…
    The 'edit' button is missing though but so what, were just glad to have it back

    }:?)
  • Bobo Donkey? on 17 Nov, 2003, 15:02…
    And the little private message thingy, I'll shut up now.
  • Paco on 17 Nov, 2003, 14:20…
    Woo!!!Woo.
  • ED on 17 Nov, 2003, 13:34…
    Welcome back Mojo. I knew you'd return at some point. How does this compare with last times delay between downtime and normality? Do we have a new record?
  • Gabez on 17 Nov, 2003, 13:32…
    :D
  • scabb on 17 Nov, 2003, 13:31…
    Hooray for Papa Mojo.
  • Moosferatu on 17 Nov, 2003, 11:35…
    Looks great guys! Good work.

    Just one thing, could you do something different with the links? They are kind of hard to see.
  • Jake on 17 Nov, 2003, 16:03…
    It will be fixed sometime in the future :)
  • Mad Lord Snapcase on 17 Nov, 2003, 14:55…
    Yeah, please make them a touch lighter... The bolded ones are okay but the standard ones just look like running text unless you look real close.
  • LucasTones on 17 Nov, 2003, 13:52…
    I don't think so.. they're clear enough for me, anyway.
  • Moosferatu on 17 Nov, 2003, 15:08…
    For example, I can't tell the difference between the normal text and the link to the "Who's Online" feature unless my face is a couple inches from my screen. The bold ones are fine, it is just the normal sized ones that give me some trouble.
  • Jake on 17 Nov, 2003, 15:14…
    There are no links in the "Who's Online" section. ?
  • Moosferatu on 17 Nov, 2003, 15:20…
    Not in it. To it. There is a link to it in your update.
  • Huz on 17 Nov, 2003, 15:55…
    Agreed, Moos. I didn't even notice it WAS a link until I read your comment. ?
  • Kingzjester on 18 Nov, 2003, 19:02…
    I didn't even know it was a link! I see no difference between links and text... but then again, it could be the flat plasma monitor's fault...
  • Mad Lord Snapcase on 17 Nov, 2003, 09:50…
    Wow. Good going you people you.
  • BooJaka on 17 Nov, 2003, 09:21…
    Yay! Now I have to scroll down the page to get to the forums link...
  • Jake on 17 Nov, 2003, 09:33…
    Are you running at 800x600 or something?
  • bgbennyboy on 17 Nov, 2003, 09:01…
    Hoorah! The new forum template is quality too.
  • LucasTones on 17 Nov, 2003, 09:20…
    Thats very true.
  • black_sheep on 17 Nov, 2003, 09:00…
    excellent excellent job you guys, and i realllllly like the new MOJO!
  • LucasTones on 17 Nov, 2003, 08:57…
    This is the design that was gonna be up "next Friday" about 3 months ago, right? It still looks sweet, excellent work :D
  • tigercore on 17 Nov, 2003, 08:30…
    Nice design, took you long enough!
  • Marek on 17 Nov, 2003, 06:29…
    I still had this site bookmarked!! Honestly.
  • ThunderPeel2001 on 17 Nov, 2003, 07:15…
    It was still my homepage! :)
  • Jake on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:50…
    Er oops. I haven't re-uploaded the game guide sites yet either. That will come in a few days.
  • PTDC on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:45…
    OMG this is so cool especially seeing as I've NEVER seen it before... ;)
  • ThunderPeel2001 on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:42…
    Hey! How do I make comments to articles (like the Jedi Academy review?).
  • Jake on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:47…
    Adding comments to the JA review now. Sorry about that :)
  • Marek on 18 Nov, 2003, 08:24…
    JA with comments = JA+ !

    Ho... ho...
  • tabacco on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:45…
    Jake Says: it's article-specific, so some articles have comment pages, and some don't.
  • tabacco on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:39…
    ...and as an added bonus, we've fully restored 99.9% of the posts and comments from both Mojo7 and Mojo8. Some of you may remember that the Mojo7 posts never made it back in for the last revision :)
  • remixor on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:39…
    My account was not saved. :(
  • tabacco on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:40…
    Erm... that was intentional! ;)
  • ThunderPeel2001 on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:39…
    Good lord! And I didn't have to re-register! Yippee! Welcome back Mojo!! (I better get my site up, whoops! :D)
  • Metallus on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:27…
    Here's where the staff posts comments before any users do. I'll just say it's because people have to re-register and not because this happens all the time. Obviously.
  • tabacco on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:38…
    Most people shouldn't have to re-register. We saved just about all the accounts from Mojo8.
  • Metallus on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:40…
    Well, all two members who registered after the last Mojo8 database backup then... :)
  • Jake on 17 Nov, 2003, 03:40…
    And yes, banner ads will be coming back in the next couple days. :)
  • Kingzjester on 18 Nov, 2003, 18:59…
    Speaking of which, I need the php codes for both the regular ads and the towers.
  • tabacco on 17 Nov, 2003, 04:38…
    Hooray!
  • Kolzig on 18 Nov, 2003, 14:17…
    Yeehaw
