Those of you who read my blog posts on the site will know that I've been spending some time planning for a replacement of Deeproot, the firewall machine for FUMBBL. The old hardware is approaching 10 years old which is older than I am comfortable with.

In order for this to happen, I will need some assistance from you to cover the costs of the hardware. While donations generally speaking cover most of the running costs to pay the bills, donation drives such as this one is needed to replace aging hardware.

While I don't want to set up game-breaking incentives, everyone who participates in this donation drive will receive a Deeproot icon on their overview pages (together with the standard gold supporter badge) to indicate their participation in this event.

Those of you who donated around the time of me posting the blog entries will also be considered part of the drive (let's call it february 1st or later) and be given the Deeproot icon as well.

This drive will be active for two weeks, starting today (ending on the 5th of March). At that point, I will make the final decision on the hardware that will replace Deeproot (possible options mentioned in the linked blog post above).

Save Deeproot


To participate in this donation drive, please click on the "Support FUMBBL" link at the top right of the page. Thank you very much for your support!

A few days ago, someone asked on the forums whether anyone had set up a FUMBBL Discord server. This had already been on my radar for a while, and I already had a server set up, so I figured I would simply link it on the thread and see if anyone was interested. Without any significant announcement, we now have around 50 coaches who joined and I thought it was time to make an official post about it.

What is Discord, you may ask. The people who run it call it an all-in-one voice and text chat that's free, secure and works on both your desktop and phone. It's also a chat tool that is becoming more and more popular in various circles because of its ease-of-use. While there are applications you can download for your computer (and mobile device), it runs perfectly well in a browser window.

To try it out, click on the button below which will take you to the server.

Join our Discord server

When you've joined, there are a few things you may want to know:

• Become a Verified FUMBBL User by sending a private message to BowlBot (on Discord) in the format "auth [site username]" (without quotes or brackets) and following the instructions.

• We expect everyone to use the same nickname on Discord as on the site. Therefore, nickname changing is not enabled on the server. You may contact a staff member to fix problems with nicknames. This should preferably be done at the same time as the user verification process outlined above.

• If you wish to use the voice chat functionality, you are required to use "Push to Talk". At the bottom left of the Discord window, there are three buttons next to your user name. Clicking the Cog shaped one (User Settings) and going to the "Voice" panel will allow you to set a Push to Talk shortcut. We suggest using one of your control keys for this purpose. Once this is done, and you join a voice channel, you will be able to talk to others by holding this shortcut button down while talking.

It's time already for the fourth round of qualifying tournaments in XFL XI.

Our random draw today gave us a pleasant mix of races, meaning that nearly everyone can play this one, regardless of their preferences (except the filthy elfhuggers :P)

Our races are:

Dwarf
Lizardman
Underworld


Bit of bash, bit stunty madness and of course the woderful agility of those sauri!

If you have a [B]lackbox or [R]anked team from any or all of these races you can APPLY on the group page, without any restrictions in TV/TW.

Hi all,

I've just pushed an update to the site that allows you to set up email notifications for private messages. In order to make this work, you will need to do two things:

1. Verify your account email address
2. Enable notifications

Both of these are done from the same place:

Go to your home/overview page. From there, select "Settings" under the "More" menu. In there, you will find a messages section where you can initiate the email verification process (an email will be sent out to your registered email) and once you have completed the email loop process, you will be able to enable the email notifications.

If you are unsure of which email address you have set up on your account, you can check (and update if necessary) by clicking the Account link (top right, just under the donation button) and selecting "Change your info".

This code hasn't been extensively tested, so if you run into problems let me know and I'll try to fix it.
