Had to turn off ads because the Value Click servers went down and the JavaScript was preventing any Moby pages from loading. Pretty lame when your ad network makes your site unviewable. Once they get their act together we'll turn em back on. We renegotiated our contract for our datacenter. Moby now has three times as much space and four times as much bandwidth. We were growing out of what we previously had and now. Moby can continue to grow and we still have plenty of headroom.

You may have noticed our ads lately have not been very exciting. This is partly due to the terrible condition of the online advertising industry and partly due to our in house ad server currently being upgraded. We should have the new server up in the next couple of days. I bet everyone is just soooooooooo excited.

As life attempts to return to normal, we are slowly starting to get back into the swing of regular approvals. Look for a lot of new entries, et al appearing in the next 2 days, beginning in the next three hours.

Rumor has it that MobyGames was written up in the November issue of PCGamer (should hit newsstands in a week or so).

Well it's been a rough week here in New York. Needless to say we've been a little slow on the approvals. I have a T1 running to our building but it's been down since the attack. Phones are also pretty jacked up so is my dial up access is iffy at best. We will get to everything in the queue. It will just take a little longer than usual. I know the status at Moby is probably not your greatest concern given the situation I just felt we should keep you all posted. If you want to help the relief effort please check out the American Red Cross.

Here's some interesting fallout from the recent events, sent to us from reviewgames.com:

Dear Majestic Player,

EA has temporarily suspended service on Majestic. Given the recent national tragedy, we feel that some of the fictional elements in the game may not be appropriate at this time. We will contact you again concerning resumption of the game.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.

Regards,

The Majestic Team



As much money as it will lose for EA, I think that was a very responsible thing to do, so kudos to EA for not contributing to the national emergency.

No doubt the world is aware of recent events, so I won't go into them right now. But thankfully, the 1/3rd of MobyGames that lives in New York, David Berk, was unaffected by this morning's tragedy.

Well my internet connection went down over the weekend so I was not able to do any approvals for the last couple days. In other news we cleaned up the Links/Searches page. We entered into a deal with Just Adventure to trade links. Should you see a JA+ link it means there is a review on Just Adventure about that specific game. We also removed the Deja News and Alta Vista search links since neither worked correctly. We added Google Groups.

Every single screenshot we've received in the last 48 hours has kicked ass -- proper encoding (GIF for 256 colors or less), proper resolution, appropriate screenshot descriptions, and nothing excessive or redundant. Great job!
