The poll is a lot closer now than it was, does anyone else want to swing their vote?


I thought the fact that we weren't "well known" was because the website still hadn't "gone gold" just yet.

We went as gold as I know how to go with the contest

It's not like I have a degree in advertising or anything.

That's sweet! Do you plan on putting them in mAI's database when everything's sort out?


Yep, just waiting for nick to get me the relevant database files. He seems pretty busy and it's a lot of maps, so it'll probably take some time.

I do agree that mAI has not been a huge success but going back to mAL seems like a step backwards...

All right, seems we have a majority vote then (not over yet but just about)

Today I'll be switching over to Lithium Web Hosting from Godaddy, so the site might be down a bit. Probably not, as the only thing that has to change is nameservers. Note: a few posts may be missing, as the forums ar ebeing restored from a backup made earlier today. Anyway, it'll be cheaper and hopefully more reliable in terms of file downloads.

Switch is (finally, sigh) done! Everything's back the way it was, and the download speeds are excellent now! Plus, paying a good $6 less per month than before. Good stuff.

I vote we use a non-intrusive google ad so we are able to own mAL indefinitely, as per my conversation with PP.

Yay, We are back up. Now I can upload my TF2 map!

Speaking of which, hopefully we can all work on more Portal/ Portal theme stuff rather then us sitting here debating what to call our self's.
