Many of you may not realize it, but on April 28, 2005, Boardgamegeek opened the floodgates to the nicest feature (other than geeklists) on the entire site.

It was 5 years ago today
That Aldie wondered what you play
It's been mostly going out of style
But it might sometimes raise a smile
So let me (re)introduce to you
The best place to hang on BGG
Geek Questions piss-soaked back alley.....


Yes, he created a skeleton system of asking and answering questions. I think he somewhere even said that he modeled it after something called "Friendster." Anyway, it's a neglected patch in the BGGverse, due for some shovel-ready urban enhancements any day now. But it's our urban blight and we love it so.

Here's the glowing hype Aldie used to start the ball rolling (though Octavian actually was first to post a mention of GQ): "Here's a silly little thing"

Aldie also asked the first question: What is your favorite game?.

So that simple question ignited a frenzy. Well, a fad. No, maybe a movement. Or maybe a flutter. Anyway, GeekQuestions is a wonderful feature of BGG which most people are either ignorant of or intolerant to. And that's sad. Sure, it's got a lot of junk in it, just as do ratings, reviews, geeklists, and forums. But there are jewels there, too. This geeklist is a celebration of some of those jewels.

By May 1 of that first year, Aldie had this to say: "Well this is the major problem when we apply a 'free' new feature to 60,000 registered users. I think a lot of people were taking the piss with the system and asking silly, bogus questions."

How prescient! How was he to know that within five short (?) years, silliness would be taken to new levels, not to mention many serious questions? More importantly, how did he know that it would become known as the piss-soaked back alley of BGG?

For one day, it cost a GG to ask a question, as a disincentive for those who were asking silly, nonsensical questions. Apparently, that caused a kerfuffle.

So, Aldie said, "Ok, I've gone back to not charging to ask a question, but I have implemented a filter to hide some of the questions that aren't getting responses."

When questioned about the original "silly" comment, Aldie responded: "There's room for silliness. But I think there's some mean questions in there. Right now you may not get to see a question that has been disabled. Perhaps I can allow you to see every question through a profile flag."

And that is one of the final words on that subject.

Anyway, on with the show. Here are some tidbits about GQs... (data taken late in April, covering inception through 3/31/2010)...

2248 people have asked at least 1 question (not including those who have deleted their accounts)
952 of those have asked exactly 1
2/3 of them have asked fewer than 5 questions
72 have asked 100 or more
The questions alone have generated almost 35,000 thumbs, none of which appear in a user's contribution list. (Probably many, many more such invisible thumbs for the GeekQuestion answers.)

And here's a tutorial in reading this list:

What's in a question's entry...

First, the name of the user in brackets, sometimes followed by where the question ranks (only for the top 100, though here I've added it just for demonstration purposes). there are almost 60,000 questions, so ranking in the top 100 out of that is a Big Deal.


[Nem Menuu] #1721!

Then we see the question's rating, from +5 (happy faces) to -5 (blue faces). After that, you'll see the date and time asked and the number of thumbs received. See, thumbs and answers are the driving forces in determining a question's rating (along with age and length of the question).

(Tue 8/23/05 1:44 pm) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsup

Then, you'll see the question. And, through the wonders of technology (and special thanks to Brian Cooper), you can click on the question to read answers or give your own answer. Go ahead, try it out.

Why hasn't every single overweight person realized yet that the ultimate weight loss program, with no pills, only moderate exercise time, and a 100% sucess rate is to simply eat less? (don't want any BS about "i can't stop eating"or" I just cant lose pounds" because that is just wasting breath that some people would give anything to have.)

Then you'll see some dooflotchies which tell you how many answers the question generated. Toilets represent 25 answers and asterisks represent 1. So this question generated 48 answers.

mb ***** ***** ***** ***** ***

There are a few symbols you'll see from time to time as well. These three indicate OMG, BBQ, and Ignored questions (more about that in the body of the list).

wow bacon snore

When you see this indicator, that means the question was the highest rated among all questions asked on that particular day. (Question of the Day)

QotD

If the question happened to be in the top 1% of all questions asked, it gets this notation

1% Club

And, finally, there's the WTF indicator...

Those questions were, by at least one metric, the best of the best over the 5 years of GeekQuestions. But there were some other interesting grades.

For instance, what was the worst "best Question of the Day"? Well, it came from one of our better questioners, heli, who has asked 319 questions between May of '05 and September of last year.
[heli] QotD soblue (Sun 5/20/07 9:14 pm) Isn't the top 10 games list too skewed toward heavy games? Seems like it would discourage folks coming to the site/hobby for the first time. ***** *****

It is also interesting that for a brief while, GeekQuestions were hot. Everyone seemed to be doing it. Questions routinely garnered 100 or more answers. But that all came to a halt after less than 2 months. Currently, the most recent question to have eclipsed the 100 answer mark was this one from someone who asked questions only in May and June of that first year.

Over time, we've come up with some standards in our beloved "back alley." We've got terms for many of our questions.

For instance, questions which receive thumb(s) but no answers are called "WTF" questions. They're a rare breed. In fact, there are crrently only 27 such queries. They don't last long, because at some point, they are sullied by a response. Here's our oldest such question...

[Randy Cox] (Fri 6/26/09 3:46 pm) thumbsup Since the great geek list, there have been only 5 new answers to the questions in that list but there have been 14 new thumbs! Coincidence?

And the only ones to have 2 thumbs and no answers...
[pwilz] (Sat 8/22/09 7:44 pm) thumbsupthumbsup A priest, a minister and a rabbi, by legend by enemy created, to 3 holy men given, two for centuries Christian, one by fight or death Jewish, by quest sought, never found, but only one joke could join them. What is it?
[pwilz] (Tue 10/13/09 7:01 pm) thumbsupthumbsup Suppose you liked big butts, but your life depended on convincing someone else that you did not? Could you lie?
[gren doogan] (Fri 1/8/10 1:06 am) thumbsupthumbsup [question=54841]http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/639178/gren-doogan??[/question]
[pwilz] (Fri 1/15/10 4:33 pm) thumbsupthumbsup Are Fourier Transforms more than meets the eye?

Interestingly, one of our own was on the cutting edge of discovering WTFish questions with this one, which currently has 6 more thumbs than answers:

Another category of questions we recognize every month are "OMG" questions. These are questions with significant numbers of answers (adjusted based on the age of the question). Many of the Questions of the Day have achieved this level of excellence. Here are a few of the others...

[Phil Fleischmann] 1% Club #32! wow (Tue 2/23/10 1:47 pm) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup Genie in a bottle grants only restricted wishes. For your ninth wish, you get a one time lump sum of cold, hard cash, but not right now. You can get it whenever you want, but one time only, and the amount is $1000 per day you wait. So if you get it tomorrow, you only get $1000. If you wait a week, you get $7000. If you wait three years, you get over a million. How long do you wait? ***** ***** ***** *
[Zedsdead] 1% Club #52! wow (Wed 1/20/10 8:52 am) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup [Serious question, seeking advice] Thinking about canceling my cable TV service. Now that football season is almost over, would I really miss it? I like TV series on DVD; I still have Netflix and Netflix live, and an Xbox360 that gets a LOT of use. Have any of you fine folks cut the cable? What do you miss? ***** ***** ***** **
[MamaRat] 1% Club #53! wow (Mon 8/10/09 1:40 pm) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup Here's a hypothetical for you: Say you and your SO went away for the weekend and stayed at a cozy little B&B. And say you left something in a drawer in your room at the B&B. And say that something was about $45 worth of sex toys. Hypothetically, if this were to happen, which I'm not saying it did, would you call the owners of the B&B and ask them to send you your stuff, or would you just die a little of mortification and pray that they either never found it or never realized whose stuff it was? Theoretically, I mean. ***** ***** ****
[Woelf] 1% Club #53! wow (Wed 1/6/10 8:33 am) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup If for some silly reason you decided to leave BGG forever, would you simply log out and disappear quietly, or would you delete every contribution you've made to the site (thus exacerbating the problem you're using as an excuse for leaving) and then post a big "screw you guys, I'm going home" farewell thread? ***** ***** ****
[Vistathon] 1% Club #53! wow (Fri 1/22/10 2:41 am) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup Ok, it's a new day, I feel refreshed and I'd like to take this oppurtunity to apologise to anybody on GeekQuestions that I may have annoyed recently. Having done a bit of research on the "Back alley", I can appreciate that I may have got the wrong idea of what the actual point was... I guess questioning isn't for me? Or at least if there's a next time, I'll remember to bring some Wellington boots! Erm, how are you? ***** ***** ****
[tankexmortis] 1% Club #81! wow (Wed 3/24/10 10:56 am) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup How did you meet your spouse? Or, for the unmarried: how do you plan to meet your future spouse? ***** ***** ***
[ynnen] 1% Club #82! wow (Thr 4/28/05 6:18 pm) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup If you get to choose your color first in a game, what's your preference? mbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmbmb ***** ***** ***

In fact, heli's question there, with 263 answers, is the most answered question in GQ history.

Whaddayaknow? A question can garner lots of answers and still rate poorly. Like these.

[I hate GeekQuestions] wowsobluesobluesobluesoblue (Fri 2/26/10 9:52 am) [question=57292]Are Geek Questons really just asking dumbass questions in the hope of getting an even dumber answer from your clique buddies?[/question] ***** *****
[Hibikitour] wowsobluesobluesobluesoblue (Tue 9/22/09 9:22 am) How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? In answering this question assume the word chuck refers to throwing. ***** *****
[Woelf] wowsobluesobluesobluesoblue (Sat 10/10/09 9:17 pm) I stopped at my LGS this evening, and saw not one but two copies of Space Hulk (3rd) sitting on the shelf. Why didn't I buy it? ***** *****
[Randy Cox] wowsobluesobluesobluesoblue (Tue 11/24/09 6:45 pm) I'm thinking of adding two new features to this Bean's List--a wtf designation for questions with thumbs but no answers and a "totally ignored" designation for questions with no thumbs and no answers. There are about 7 of the former and almost 100 of the latter. Whaddayathink? ***** *****
[I hate GeekQuestions] wowsobluesobluesobluesoblue (Sun 2/28/10 4:38 am) [question=57350]I got round to reading some of your answers. I'm not really a sock puppet, I had another account since 2005,even used Geek Questions sometimes, but deleted my account eventually for personal reasons. I decided to revisit BGG and reading some questions again I was really struck at HOW UNBELIEVABLY F*CKING BORING THEY ARE. I can't believe I didn't see it before. I stand firmly by my text clowns throwing custard pies analogy. Curiousity satisfied? Keep on stepping in whitewash everyone! For the next 5 years at least! And yes, if it makes you happy the door will hit my ass on the way out. [/question] ***** *****

We also have "Ignore" questions ( snore ) which simply have accumulated no interest at all. That's not too uncommon for recently posed interrogatives. But for old stuff, you'd think someone would have seen and answered it by now. Here are some oldies and not so goodies...

And because there is much baconlust here on BGG, we have a category for questions which have magically garnered the same number of thumbs as answers. We call them BBQ questions. Here are a few from long ago...

[Matt B] QotD (Sat 8/4/07 6:38 pm) Newbie. Impressed with the level of detail on your site. However, haven't the time to spend looking for a game for my 10 year old son. Thinking 2 to 4 players, strategy (not necessarily war), simultaneous gameplay (played diplomacy once - too long), maybe a satisfying result in under ninty minutes. Any thoughts? He plays Risk, Chess, Stratego (the basics) and enjoys puzzle solving. Thanks in advance. ***** ***** ***** *
[ragados] QotD (Sun 10/19/08 8:05 am) Do you read Count Your Sheep? (If not, why not!) ***** *
[DarkWaltz] QotD (Fri 6/22/07 3:40 pm) Does anyone know where i can download a copy of the instruction manual for X-Men Under Siege! ?? ***** ***

[Karlsen] QotD soblue (Tue 12/30/08 7:50 pm) Is it back, is it really back? ***** *
[elcabongo5684] QotD soblue (Sun 10/22/06 1:22 am) Ok I had an arguement with a friend. I need to know the name of a game that you peiced together a game map, one side had a castle and you set up guys then used a cannon with little orange balls to try to take out the other guys? ***** ***** *
[Actorios] QotD soblue (Sat 6/23/07 2:17 pm) Between the 3 available versions of Tigris & Euphrates, which one do you prefer : Hans im Glück, Mayfair or Pegasus ? Why ? ***** *****

But there is so much more data to mine out there (GQ is a big place; remember the big celebration when the 1,000,000th answer was given?)...

Many people think that "Coke or Pepsi?" is the most common geek question (and now that I let the cat out of the bag, someone has asked enough more to make it so). But as of 3/31/10, the most common question on BGG was...

Memes. All sensible people hate 'em. But when did sensibility gain a place at the GQ table?

For reasons undeciphered by scholars, there have been quite a few questions concerning Arlene Dahl (71), Edgar Allan Poe (98), and Wil Wheaton (293). The "best" of each lot...

[Woelf] (Mon 7/27/09 12:04 pm) thumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsupthumbsup Could Will Wheaton ever bloviate about crab-cake-flavored Peak Freans? What if Broderick Crawford supplied him with 42 gallons of BONE SUCKIN' SAUCE stolen from Arlene Dahl's personal supply? ***** ***

You've done the text equivalent of diving for cover behind a sandbag and grabbing a machine gun. Oh no, a non clique member! Give him every bullet boys! You've shared a moment of esprit de corps in a stressful time and are closer than ever. You were lucky to have me around. I might return in a few years time to ask a question about Wil Wheaton or mangos. [/question] ***** ***** *****
