I am not sure but I think the site started really on the first of february of 2002.
(For US-residents, on February, the first of 2002).
CONGRATS TO RICHARD !!!
I just see that game number 1 was a monthly cup game in march…
Start date:2002-03-05 17:54
from http://fatphil.org/lg/faq_full.html & http://www.edcollins.com/golem/
How long has the site been running?
With a minor exception or two, Little Golem has been up continuously since March of 2002.
p.s. now it's .net but it was .org
If the date's in dispute, we should celebrate both. I'll take an excuse to eat birthday cake twice. And maybe a third by celebrating early.
Happy Birthday, LG!
From what I can tell, the first tournaments were go9, go13 and go19 and they started on March 5,2002. Game #1 was go13. The first registered players were all on March 6, 2002 (so the day after the first tournaments began). the lowest member # is #6 (Richard is #1002), and player #1 is “system” (There are no players 2 thru 5). (Hjalti, where did you get Feb. 1 as the start date?)
Littlegolem it has been part of my life (i bet im not the only one)
I have been playing about 17 years here.
Best wishes for the next 20 years.
It is true that there are a lot of new websites of boardgaming, but LG has a mysticism. LG it is a community.
PS: Please bring back the Team-Tournaments - This contribuite to the “community” factor.
I'm not active atm, but I will be back one day and surely hope littlegolem will be around for another 20 years at least!
