Hi All,

I wrote a simple utility which is basically a button in the bookmars bar in your browser that can generate a random name for a player:

It's nothing complicated, but I found it handy so thought I could share it Smile

If you would like to give it a try:

* Go here: http://roante.github.io/fumbbl-namegen/
* Drag the boxed fumbbl-namegen text into your bookmark bar.
* In Fumbbl when buying a new player, open the URL address in a new tab.
* Click on the button and enjoy your new random name Smile

I tried it under the recent versions of Opera, Chrome and Firefox so it should work. Feel free to have any comments if it's not working as expected or at all Smile

Cheers!

Yeah, unfortunately in the popup the menu is disabled explicitly by the FUMBBL site (menubar=no parameter). The sole exception is Opera in which it works w/o having to copy & paste the address.

maybe file a ticket to the admin with this and they can pass it on to christer, he may be able to add it to the name window on site?

Dan-Da-Man Which browser you are using? There are descriptions on how to find the bookmark bar here for the different browsers: http://roante.github.io/fumbbl-namegen/

The picture is not accessible via a secure channel (https), hence it doesn't show. Best way to solve it would be to just upload it on FUMBBL as well and link to that version.

Good job, gotta try it! Smile

Roland: Yeah, good idea, I'll add it to the list. The only problem is where to find such names Smile

Where do the names come from and are they race based depending on the team you're naming for? i.e. Orc names for Orc teams?

I suspect that if Christer wanted us to have random names for players, we would already have them. =)
