Also, if you send me a GG I'll let you in on a very tricky and underhanded way to earn GG!
Does it involve a long lost uncle who happens to be an African prince?

Give it 12 hours... GG is not instantaneous and sometimes takes quite a while to come through.

You uploaded them to your personal gallery. There is no GG reward for this.

If you want to get GG rewarded for your images, you have to get them approved by geekmod. You can do this by uploading your images on the game's page. There is an upload button at the top of the image section on the game's page.

But I uploaded my pictures on the game's page and geekmod accapted it.

No, you linked them from your personal gallery to the game's gallery and geekmod accepted the links. But there is no GG reward for proposing links.

The end result is the same though, they show up in the game's gallery. The only difference is that you got no GG reward for it.

The proper way to submit images really is uploading them using the button on the game's page.

Linking images is meant for those occassions where e.g. an image is showing two different games and you want the image to be displayed in the galleries of both games.

Geekmod should never have accepted the links you submitted to link images from your personal gallery to the game's gallery.

Earning geekgold:
You can also go to VGG, and earn your Geekgold there. It doesn't matter where you earned your geekgold, it'll still pay for your avatar.

Example:
if you're not a videogame owner, but do play an occasional web browser game.

One avatar in a few easy days.
Or: how did I earn over 30 geekgold in a few days on VGG.

Day 1
Played a flash game I liked on a random web page. Checked VGG. Game wasn't submitted. Game intro mentioned the publisher. Checked site. Discovered it was a series. Series checked. Not in dB.
Submitted Penguins Attack (series), When Penguins Attack - TD, Penguins Attack TD 2 and Penguins Attack 3.
10 reward for submitting 3 games and 1 series

Next days:
Played the game I already liked anyway on internet and it's predecessors. Took screenshots (Alt/prntscreen), cropped them and uploaded them. The intro screen of Armor Games I uploaded company's page, noting in which game each logo was found.
20

Tot top it off, I added weblinks to each of the 3 games and the publisher's page, for 0.25 a piece.
1

31 earned in a few days, for submitting 3 free flash games anyone has access to. Most time was playing the games, to make the screenshots. Hard work!

You can check my 'Geekgold collected' for reference.

If you are a videogame owner:
Maybe you own one of the games we still want a representative picture for. Scanning and uploading your boxfront will get you 4 geekgold (in stead of the usual 1) Just remember: it must be your own pic/scan, so not taken from elsewhere on the Net. Min size 400x700, max 1400x1900.

Look in this thread for details. Or drop me a mail.

This a great thread. I agree with the fellow poster who mentioned that it'd be a good idea to sticky it. Perhaps include it across the board on BGG, RPGG AND VGG?

MEOW! WOOF WOOF!

It is pinned which I think is bgg version of stickyed.

Unfortunately you still have to find the forum to find it, which is not that simple for new users.

All praise the holy divine spectre of the upcoming revamped bgg... you are our only hope.

But we we will all complain about when it arrives, somewhere around the Rolling Stone's review of Dylan's Self-portrait Album mark

In addition to this post:

There's now a special December'11 bonus:
each and everyone who has never submitted a videogame before and submits his first game now, gets his geekgoldbonus doubled!
Which equals roughly to: you'll probably get a microbadge (8gg) for your first videogame!

Spoiler (click to reveal)
I currently have a game related crossword competition up that will be giving away 100gg to one lucky winner:

BGG Crossword Competition - Win 100GG (closed for entries)

There are far easier ways to make geek gold though

I added a geeklist which has links to places where you can find pictures worthy of BGG. Just ask owner for permission and then upload & download the pictures. Most of the links have multiple pictures. (GG is per picture.)

Hello, Been a member for a few months but trying to get more involved. At the beginning of this thread it says:

"If you vote to approve an image and it is approved you will receive .01 geekgold."

But, I cannot figure out how to approve an image. Is it basically giving it a thumbs up? Something else? Perhaps the images I'm looking at are already approved so it is not clear. Any help with this would be appreciated. Thanks!

It's geekmodding - it's done in it's own special area - see link at bottom but first:

Check out the related guide: Every-Gamer BGG Guides

3 people vote and if the article/image/video/data/link gets through you get 0.01 if refused you get 0.30. If the others vote against you you get nothing.

Please make sure you know the guidelines before modding. Each site has their own geek modding and own guidelines- VGG always has loads of stuff.

How to “earn” geek gold method #2 (auction $ for ) is what I’m interested in.

Sadly I don’t have the time to earn my GG by contributing in al subsequent method’s you state in your post. To busy gaming, organizing game events, helping to run our board game gamers group etc. … oh and earning more money to buy new games I guess.
But maybe also to auction some of that money of to get some much desired GG …. and by doing so maybe “rewarding” someone who did have the time to spend, and chose to invest it in to contributing to the BGG site, with some extra cash.

I have already “earned” a few GG via method 1, becoming a BGG patriot ‘12 to support the BGG site in general.thumbsup But hey, 25GG just isn’t enough to get me an avatar and some micro badges I would really like to add to my name. soblue

So I wonder how auctioning of some dollars or in my case Euro’s would work (“step by step”).
Can’t imagine I am the first one to ask so there must me some previous answers to this question…. I just can’t find them.
So please, can somebody point me towards a “how to… “for this?

Thanks
