Happy birthday FUMBBL. Well done again Christer for this excellent site. And Kalimar of course.

15 years old. If FUMBBL was a person, it would be sleeping in until 10:30 and sulking a lot Wink

That archive of the original site is really interesting. A couple of kinda-interesting historical things I dug up:

News post from when FUMBBL was launched

GLN #1

Some things that I struggled to find though:
  • First ever forum post
  • First ever team created
  • First ever game played

Some of this seems hard to find, because the site did exist before Jan 2003, although it seems it was in an alpha form, not fully released. Also, the rulesets that were used back then were different, so if I type 'team_id=1' into the address bar, it just says 'unsupported ruleset'.
