With nearly all material transferred from the old site, I have begun begin the ongoing process of filling out these pages with additional content from the Project. A vast amount of new material is already here. The goal remains the same it has been for more than ten years: to gather together in one place every relevant detail about Max, his world and his many appearances. More than that, the purpose here is to validate all that data and strip out the endless errors, mistakes, omissions and guesses, so that what remains here is complete, reliable and, I would hope, moderately interesting to all Max fans and scholars.

This site has existed in one form or another since the beginning of the internet, and there appear to be some precursor file repositories and forums that extend right back to Max's era in the late 1980s. Mindful of that long legacy, I am proud to have this site be the last major stronghold of "things Max" on the web. While the rebuild and refresh and expansion onto this new platform are largely complete, you'll still run into a few unfinished pages and dead ends - I'm working on them, when I have time. As Max would say, "S-S-Sorry. Stay tun-tuned!"

This new platform has made the task of updating, expanding and correcting the contents ''much'' easier. The work continues and for a while you will run into unfinished and stub pages. Most of these have a banner at the head indicating incomplete status. Eventually, all the pages will be "complete" - but the search for more information, the addition of details and the writings about it all will continue indefinitely.

This year, I hope to add in the missing element - you! - with a return of the discussion forums.
  
In parallel with the content, I will be evolving the style to a more Max-like one, and you might encounter some quirks as a result of that. (As Max would say, "Sorry. S-Sorry.") If you're interested in the details of what's going on here behind the scenes, you can keep an eye on the [[And N-Now the News | updates]] page. Since ''ev-ev-everything'' is an update right now, it holds a summary of the overall work process and immediate plans.

Mindful of that long legacy, I am proud to have this site be the last major stronghold of "things Max" on the web. While the rebuild and refresh and expansion onto this new platform are largely complete, you'll still run into a few unfinished pages and dead ends - I'm working on them, when I have time. As Max would say, "S-S-Sorry. Stay tun-tuned!"
