Q: How does the Random Number Generator (RNG) work and are the dice rolls really random?
A: In short yes, but click here to read how the RNG truly works and find out how it is actually more reliable and random than real dice!

Q: I have found a Bug, how do I report it?
A: Click here to report bugs. Make sure you check to see if there is already a bug report for this before you create a duplicate. Also make sure you pick the correct section in the drop down menu at the top of your report when you report the bug. FUMBBL is for site related bugs and Fantasy Football is for bugs in the game/with the client.

Q: What size are the player-images in the client? And team logos?
A: Player images should be 95*147 pixels. They can be gif, jpg or png and must be less than 30kb in filesize. Team logos shouln't exceed 390*450 pixels (the size of your half ot the pitch), and are limited to 100 kb. Tip, use the save for web feature if you are using photoshop to reduce the filesize.

Q: When using Linux with the Gnome Desktop, a white bar appears at the bottom of the screen, prohibiting the use of the chat.
A: This is a known issue with Gnome and the Java JDesktopPane (Internal Frames) in that Gnome renders a toolbar inside the application. One workaround is to use a different Desktop (e.g. KDE) or Windowmanager. Another way to set up a config-file to disable that part of gnome for Javaw can be found here (broken) or here.
