|Jimmy Buffett World was started on January 1st, 2000 by Josh Martin in Springfield, Missouri. For nearly four years it resided on Josh’s free AOL Hometown space (see right, top).
On October 31st, 2003 the domain name buffettworld.com was purchased and the site was redesigned (see right, middle). A powerful phpBB Discussion Board was also added. Shortly after the move to buffettworld.com, the wealth of information at BW grew greatly. With the help of Justin (Bamafan), the most comprehensive archive of Jimmy Buffett Set Lists was compiled and added in 2004. The Album Artwork collection was also added during 2004. Throughout ‘04, membership and activity on the discussion board increased dramatically.
In 2005, Justin compiled the Tour Dates Archive, also the most comprehensive on the web. The site got a complete redesign in January of 2006.
In March of 2007, the Video Gallery was added, again the largest of its kind on the internet.
The site was re-designed in January of 2008 and WordPress was implemented as a content management system. Before this, news articles were added using HTML.
A re-design was done again in January 2010. Individual pages were made for each song and for each show.
Over the years, BuffettWorld.com has been mentioned several times on Radio Margaritaville as a source for Jimmy Buffett news.

Message of thanks from Josh:
I would like to thank all those who have worked to make Jimmy Buffett World into what it is today. In particular, I would like to thank Justin for all the hard work he has done and the many contributions he has added to the site. I would also like to thank Tim for his input and contributions.
And I would like to thank the discussion board moderators Amy, Don, Shane, Vinnie, Dave, and Dean for the great job they do moderating the board. Also, I’d like to thank the faithful members of the Discussion Board.
