    UT99.org has recently launched in an attempt to consolidate information solely about the original Unreal Tournament. They're just getting started, but it's a nice looking website. They are also currently looking for more staff members with good coding/mapping skills.

    Pet peeve:
    I wish people would stop using the fan-made up "99" suffix.
    The game is called UT, the next two games can be called UT2, especially now the third game is called UT3 and Epic has stated to dislike the yearly naming scheme, not planning on using it again.

    It should be nice to have a UT-specific site!
    It's too early to offer any critique though, as it seems it still needs to fill out a bit over time.
    Good luck Frieder!

    This site has been existed for a while, but it is still cool to see UT1 activity around the web.

    shade,

    like your site, but your div's are borked in IE5 fyi.

    I think it's your float left or right divs are too wide and forcing the right content below your left menu.

    Nice, I'm definitely checking out this site every now and then. :D

    I think calling UT1 "UT99" is just as correct as Command and Conquer fans call the first CnC "Tiberian Dawn".

    Command & Conquer: Tiberian Dawn
    Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun
    Command & Conquer 3: Tiberium Wars

    It fits perfectly in the series naming scherm, and it is an official name.

    UT
    UT2003/UT2004 (Epic: naming/numbering scheme won't be used in the future)
    UT3
    UT4 (Future games will continue this numbering scheme)

    UT fits, or even UT1 if you want to clearly disambiguate between it and the series as a whole.
    UT99 does not, and Epic tends to correct people when they use it.
    In other words, it's not just as correct as the C&C example. :p

    Okay, beside ut99.org, you are able to visit my site with unreal-tournament.net :) I will move the site to unreal-tournament.net soon, so ut99.org will be the alternative domain.
