Apparently, as difficult as it may be to believe, there are those who do not understand the cozy feeling some of us get from having a wall of board games. My family has said, "too much". It's possible I may have spent a wee bit too much time, bowing before the shrine.

Anyway, time to let some of them go. My loss is your gain. soblue

ENDS TONIGHT 3/1!!

2/24 - added more games!

2/21 - Added some more games!!

You ask an excellent question! It would have taken me less time to list the 3 of them than the time I spent AGONIZING over which games must go.

However, they probably wouldn't generate as much interest as the games... at least with this crowd!!

I always loved this bit in the original Blues Brothers film, and your comment reminded me of it.

At some point, you just have to let some of them go. Good thing I don't live within driving distance anymore.

auctions don't belong in "hot deals", that's why "geek bay" forum was created

I wonder if it the forum should be called "Auctions" or "GeekBay - includes Auctions" or something else along those lines.

I would find such labelling useful. I think I would have placed it in the wrong forum as well.

Greek Bay - noun -
1.) a loading area for shipping/receiving crates of geeks.
2.) an online site for auctioning geeks.
3.) an ambiguous forum title on BoardGameGeek.

Note: Geek Bay does further specify its intended post types, but only in the forum list--not in the drop down options you see DURING a post.

I think Greek Bay is

1.) a loading area for shipping/receiving crates of gReeks.
2.) an online site for auctioning gReeks - possibly some Hellenic peoples or possibly some recently pilfered artifacts.
3.) an ambiguous forum title on BoardGameGReek - premier website for table top gaming in the .gr domain.

Ha ha. What an awesome typo I had there.

The forum description does that:

Re: Help!! My Family is Harassing me about my game collection!! AUCTION
Sorry I missed that as it was at the bottom of something talking about Greek Bay.

The name of the forum is not meant to be a full explanation of what types of threads can be posted within, it's just a name. That's what the description is for. The page with the post link, displays all the forum descriptions. I believe the idea was that a user would be able to see from that page which forum they would want to post to, then after clicking the post button, they select it from the drop down.

Feel free to make any improvement suggestions in the BGG Suggestions forum. The redesign is currently in process.

Re: Help!! My Family is Harassing me about my game collection!! AUCTION
Oh, mostly we're poking fun.

When I post, I scroll down the Home Page and click [Post] in the Forums box header--which is the most efficient way I have found so far.

From there, all you get is the drop-down options of forum titles which have no descriptions.

A site with such a VAST amount of information is bound to have complex forum titles and some interface obstacles.

I am on the BGG beta! It is looking GREAT!

And done so with any link provided.

I have been a BGG users and supporter for many years and while I fully support the correct use of "place holders" for posts etc. the "moved to Geekbay" tells me nothing!

Where is this fabled "geekbay"?

The continuing self-evident belief held by the Admins that the rest of the user community are as understanding and knowledgeable as they are about the in's and out's of BGG web site is, IMO, somewhere between irritating and unbelievable.

Or is it just me?

Re: Help!! My family is HARASSING me about my game collection!! AUCTION
These posts are actually IN Geek Bay now--the link stays the same unless you type it manually. Moving a thread just affects where the thread title shows up when browsing, but you are still in the same thread now.

Correct me if I'm wrong, others of you.

But, your point is valid; the learning curve is high here.

Yes, the learning curve is high, and the patience of some users can be low. The result for me is I'm left feeling stupid. Although that's not an unfamiliar feeling...
