How's it going, everyone? It's been quite a while since I've posted something, and although there's still tons of stuff going on for me, I really want to become a little more active around here again.
Speaking of this community, all of us know which person to thank for inviting us to this great place. Thinking a bit further though, the path doesn't quite end there; of course our drafter once received an invitation as well. And even the inviting person had someone draft him at some point. Wouldn't it be interesting to rewind this whole chain of invitations, and find out to whom our Dribbble existence initially dates back to?
I certainly think so, and that's why I'm kinda proud to present you a little side project I've been working on over the past few days: the Dribbble Draft Rewinder! Simply enter your (or anyone's) username, and it will rewind the previous invitations all the way back to a company member!
Apart from what can be seen in the choppy GIF above, the site also awards you a score at the end of each rewind, depending on how many drafters are included. My all-time best is 17; how high can you get?

I hope you'll have as much fun playing around with this little tool as I had creating it! The API is extremely straightforward and a breeze to work with for little tasks like this one. Anyway, I'd be excited for any type of feedback!

PS: @Alex Hope you don't mind that I used your username for demonstration purposes ;)
Wonderful work Jona, very impressed.
@Jona Haha, no problem. This is really awesome! I've seen other sites like this but the animations here really complete it. Good work!
Dude, this is really cool!
@Eli @Matthew Thanks so much, appreciate the positive resonance!
@Alex Thanks a lot! Do you, by any chance, remember the names of those other sites? I'm asking because I checked myself and couldn't find anything comparable.
Also, small update: Added a Twitter sharing button, whose tweet text reflects your highest score!
Nice work dude :) i rly love this. But i think this whole "app" will be much better if you can generate the link (something like this: http://hellojona.me/lab/drafts/dembsky ) ;)
@Mateusz Great idea, thanks! Shouldn't be too hard to implement, so stay tuned! :)
@Jona The main one I've seen is http://kindddred.com/
Hey there! We used this shot in this week's Weekly Replay. Thanks for posting! http://blog.dribbble.com/post/57183372503/weekly-replay
@Mateusz Try this: http://hellojona.me/lab/drafts/#dembsky
Whenever you enter a username, the link is generated automatically (watch the URL). The only thing still missing is something on the site telling you that those links can be shared.
@Alex Hmm, weird that I didn't stumble upon that myself. The site is a little more functional, but visually quite cluttered. Advantages and disadvantages, as usual. Anyway, thanks for letting me know!
@Susanna Wow, couldn't be more grateful! Thanks a lot!
@Jona now it's great :)))
Cool stuff. Would be fun if you could show forward in time too so you could see how your team/family tree grows.
@Dangerdom Thanks! That's definitely true, but would kinda exceed the scope of this tiny project. Something for another day ;)
This is absolutely amazing!
Wow, this is great @Jona
