Subject: Why are my image uploads not getting me the 1 GG? rss

I have posted a number of pictures in various threads around BGG. I'm just wondering why none of them have netted any geek gold?

I thought there was 1 GG for each image that is posted here on BGG.

I really want some more fancy microbadges, so it would be great to find an efficient way to get a bit of GG.

Thanks everyone!

Are you posting them in replies? If that's the case then you're not going to get GG.

You get GG when you upload a photo to a game entry. When you check your profile and click contributions, your "image" section is empty, meaning you have yet to upload photos to specific board games. You are only rewarded GG for those photos if it passes the geekmod.

If you click gallery in your profile, you will see all the photos you've uploaded before, probably in various threads. If you want an example, click my profile and click "contributions" and you will see that the 16 or so images listed there do not show up in my gallery (unless I've specifically uploaded them again to the correct game).

I've never posted an image, but I thought that someone would have to tip your image for you to get GG.

The best way to get GG, in my opinion, is to donate $25 or so at the end of the year. You get an additional GG for each person that donates that is in the hundreds and might push a thousand soon.

Anyway, enjoy a microbadge on me.

Are you uploading these photos to your personal BGG gallery and then posting/linking to them in threads?

Or are you uploading the photos into the game's public gallery?

Only the second option actually earns 1 gold per photo. You upload it into the photo gallery for a game, and after it's approved by a geek mod you'll get the GG.

This, you've only uploaded to your personal gallery. To gain GG for images you must upload to an item's (game, accessory, etc) record and have the images accepted.
