What you're seeing at the moment is the early stages of a completely new and long-overdue update to the site on the MediaWiki platform. There is ''much'' still to come, in organization, content and overall style. Everything  is linked, of course, and detailed cross-linking will be an ongoing effort.

This site has been brought live well ahead of being complete, to give visitors access to the material as it accumulates. Much of it is being moved over from the old — ''really'' old — site, which is still accessible via the link at right. If you're browsing, you might want to look at both sites. If you're looking for specific information, some of it might be found only on the old site, for a short while longer.

I hope to have the old material completely transferred to this new site soon... and then I can begin the ongoing process of filling it out with additional content from the Project. A considerable amount of new material is already here, if only in brief or page-stub form. 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's here is complete, reliable and I would hope moderately interesting to all Max fans and scholars. This new platform will make all these tasks much, much easier.

Until then, you will probably run into unfinished and stub pages. I will also 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 everything is an update right now, it holds a summary of the overall work process and immediate plans.
