It's mad to think there are posters on here that weren't even born when the site kicked off !

I've been infrequently posting since 2005 it seems. However I was registered a few years before that (no idea under what name) and only really used the forum for grabbing the occasional away ticket back then. I remember a chap called Kingston Graham helping me out through here for tickets

Congrats UTJ for delivering such a great environment for such a long time :newthumb:

What an achievement, congratulations to the boss and his team on creating such a great space👏

11 years for me, was on holiday in Tunisia at the time, the hotel shop didn't sell British newspapers, so I signed up to KUMB after reading for a few days to get my daily transfer news fix.

Now I spend way, way, way too much time on here..

A fair amount of tossers on here, but some genuinely brilliant people too..

:heart:

No way.....

Your first Web page couldn't have looked far off something knocked up on a commodore.

I just cannot believe that is half my lifetime ago. But thinking about it I first looked at the site around 2002 I think under a different username and ended up having a rant and falling out.

I grew up a bit and have enjoyed it ever since.

My highlight was an unnamed member of this site who organised discounted shirts for me for my girls who were very young at the time, at his own risk that I would pay up. They're both adults now but I still remember that.

The other thing I like is that we sometimes squabble etc, but when people need picking up or had bad news old scores are forgotten.

Here's to the next 25. :beer:

I've been dipping in and out of the site for years. Probably 15 .
Decided 3 years ago to actually start posting my views and opinions. I think it's good that people from all over the uk and some who live further afield have an outlet to feel part of the West Ham brethren.

We are of course going through a very positive time for the club aswell as us fans of course.

And it's great to read peoples views and opinions about all things West Ham.

Congratulations to KUMB for 25 years of keeping us West Ham fans connected.

KUMB take a bow for helping to make us massive

I used to be a member of a small forum of people that migrated from the old BBC forums and cross posted ITK stuff from here. I think James of Plumstead used to be one of the more reliable ITKs back then.

From what I recall il martello, Hammers Dad, Clacton Hammer, and Leon Rivers were all members of that forum :hamm:

Not enough.

Far more fun than real life, I'd be f*cked without this place and the people on it.

Think I was a member of Westhamfans.org before I joined here, actually.
