So good to have you back BGG! Naturally there are a number of issues but they appear to be being fixed one at a time. I know you guys are putting in some serious overtime and you'll get there soon. Thanks so much; I was getting quite antsy!

Just want to say, that files section isn't working probably. Every .doc file that I download is corrupted.

Well done guys - much kudos. Keep playing with it though - at the moment it's slower than my father playing Monopoly....

The look-up calendar on the "record a play" screen isn't loading properly.

You're back!!!

It took f-o-r-e-v-e-r for the Geek to load for me, but well worth the wait. (I can log in and everything so far.)

Thanks for all the work you guys do (and have always done) to make this community happen.

Actually the more I try the less seems to work;

I can't open mail
Pages lock out and when I click back I end up at the front page.
It seems to be getting slower by the minute.
The inability to restructure the games page, even for those with great breath holding ability is a real balls ache.

At this moment I think the site is pretty much firing on one cylinder and I hope the changes prove to be worth the growing pains and upheaval. Good luck, I think the hard work is about to begin.

Everything is very slow for me too. I tried to go to my mailbox, timed out the first time, got it the second. Don't know if I can open mail yet, it's taking way too long to try.

It was very slow, but I've been able to:

• Record games played via the search-return list
• Change status of items in my collection or remove them completely (again, through a search-return list or from the game's entry page.

But these were VERY slow.

(Using Firefox on OSX 10.3.9)


When looking at my contributions, I love the way "Geeklist items" display entries and comments in an intended outline format. Mini-avatars, too. A space-saving feature.


EDIT: I also like the fact that "The Hot List" is now called "The Hotness". I heartily approve.

I think I've submitted about 3 or 4 right now to the Fogbug thingy. Still going through a lot of testing.

In the recent additions listing, image comments just show the image but not the game title or caption of the image

Awesome, they show your personal status, plays, and comments.

Excellent change.

I had a trade that scheduled to expire on Feb 2, and it is still "active". Dont know whether this is a function of the downtime, or the new BGG.

I'm noticing some definite speed improvements: nicely done! The only thing I'm noticing so far is that "The Hotness" on the left side is blank.

It appears that a geeklist I had sorted by Rank is now no longer sorted by rank. It's in normal order.

Don't know if it's already been posted, kinda drowned after all those pages of combined junkie drool and bugs, but:

If I go to My geek/stats/games owned by year I seem to have loads and loads of games: every game is mentioned in all the different languages....

Oh, and probably wishful thinking: I was kinda hoping that when I clicked on "tags" in my profile, that when I see "related tags" and see the number of combined tags, that clicking there would lead me to just those combined tags. Instead of just repeating the same link in tags.

Ah well, I guess I just keep bitching untill either my favorite "sort by tags" feature returns or just give up all hope of this database getting fully useful for me again and just sticking to my trusty excel file that is available 365 days a year...

Don't know if this is a result of the changeover, but this file from the RISK 2210 files collection comes up corrupt every time I download it (it's the galactic risk variant):

It's probably slow because a gajillion geeks are on it at the same time after all of the downtime.

Great job and thanks for a great site and keeping it up to date. Your hard work is greatly appreciated.

I'm sure this will get lost in the torrent here, but great work to everyone who worked on this. Thanks Aldie, Derk, and Dakarp for all your hard work and dedication.

I guess. The truth is, I don't feel like reading my personal comments every time I browse the rankings. I wrote them; I know what they say. They're largely for the benefit of other users browsing a game's personal comments.

Not a big deal though. I would like the thumbnail for the game's to revert to its former (larger) size.
