Any chance we can switch up the day or time every once in a while @ucpete ?

Meh, this one was too easy for you anyway! The next three weeks, when the difficulty ramps up, you'll have way more time to get 'er done. After all, the whole raison d'être for the multi-clip MJMs is to get rid of the hit 'n' runs, which gives more folks a chance and time to solve – it totally obviates the first come, first serve MJM, and becomes more of a matter of putting in the time and your jam smarts than when you show up.

One thing that doesn't get talked about that a lot of folks (including myself when I was a player) really like is that regardless of convenience, it's nice to know that you can set an alarm clock to the MJM. Knowing that every Monday at the exact same time, no matter what, there'll be an MJM waiting for you, is something many folks look forward to. And running it on Monday gives people something fun to do on that sometimes brutal first day back at work each week. When the MJM became more sporadic, and you never knew if it was happening, or if it was, at what time, it drove me crazy. Eventually I stopped checking... so since taking over, my top priority has been consistency, hitting every Monday at the same time each week.

All that said, while I would never change the MJM date / time just because it worked better for one person, if enough people speak up wanting another day or another start time (from time-to-time), I'll absolutely accommodate that request. Though I would need to make sure players are aware of the change in advance, and I'd also need to talk with the site team about it, especially during busy (touring) season, to avoid conflict with other blog posts. The blog is generally way more active during tour – it's pretty funny how I've basically taken over the front page the past few weeks – MJM Madness indeed! is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.

This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
