To celebrate the 10th anniversary of Unexplained Mysteries we've put together a collection of screenshots that illustrate some of the changes in the design over the years, those of you who have been with us for a while will likely remember some of these.

Which design were we using when you first joined ?

Me too (early blue/gray debut), and I'm kinda glad I did. Boy did that pre-launch design stink. :P

Embrace the impossible.

Blue-grey for me too.  What I miss most about it is the side bar with the news stories on it.  That format grew on me for some reason.   Happy Birthday UM! :tsu:

In the beginning there were only probabilities. The universe could only come into existence if someone observed it. It does not matter that the observers turned up several billion years later. The universe exists because we are aware of it.

UM, home from home.
I get a real "GRUMPY-HEAD" on when things change, just like when you're settled in your favourite armchair and asked to move by some little squirt...like a Bugs-type... then I forget all about the previous lay-out and just when I'm getting compfy again....

"Pre-launch original design"

I think you should encode that MIDI music file onto every page all week to mark this mile stone occasion.
