A question.

I see that several persons skip polls altogether when submitting badges. Is this ok in which case I'll skip the polls as well in the future.

Smart way of doing things as your proposals can never get voted down.


Not required, and if there are no comments (yay or any), it will ultimately be up to me. You are not guaranteed to get one in that way.

I don't use polls because of "drive-by nos". I trust that Drew will notify me any errant yellow chin pixels.

I don't think we need more Hate badges around here. Also, can't see what this got to do with hate. More like indifferent to me.

Looks like they do.

I don't always use polls either... Depends on the mood I'm in, I guess
But I trust people will tell me when my badges suck. Oh, and receiving no thumbs is also a sign there's something wrong.
And in that case I start tweaking my designs.

Politically correct answer: don't do like me. Use a poll.


I usually do a poll, especially if I get only a couple thumbs and/or I'm not happy with the design myself and want feedback, but if I get a decent number of thumbs, no criticism, and I'm happy with it. I'll drop it in the queue.

IMHO, lack of criticism is implied approval. If you think a badge of mine should be worked on more, tell me what you think the problem is when it gets posted. I, for one, will always post a poll if there has been any criticism of a badge I'm working on.

Did you read the instructions in the first page:

cscottk wrote:

The new process will be as follows:

1. Search the current microbadges and make sure you are not duplicating an already existing badge.
2. Create your badge. The badge must have a TRANSPARENT background.
3. Upload the badge using the tool (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/microbadge/create), and in the Admin notes, post a link to where you posted your badge in this thread for community discussion.
4. After a period of time (a week or so depending on the amount of discussion), the badge should be approved. Your peers will be driving this process. Not me. I am just a gatekeeper.

Like all things on BGG, this is an evolving process. Please bear with me as we try to streamline this as we go along. I fully expect the first month or two after the re-emergence of badges to be swamped with new ones. We have been without new microbadges for a long time, and folks are suffering withdrawal symptoms. Remember, I am only one person, so the initial backlog may be long. So be patient.

Back to some basics. Here are the current rules to microbadges:

• First, if you do not recall, here is the link to microbadge basics: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/wiki/page/Microbadge
• Before creating a new badge, please make sure it is not already in the system.
• As usual, microbadges should be appropriate for the site.
• Please make sure you are happy with your badge before you upload it. I can fix badges later, but it is a manual process.
• Have fun and be nice to each other.

Yes, I did. I suppose I have a naive expectation that everyone will follow protocol and good practice by posting to this forum first, gaining tacit approval.

Evidently, this in not the case.

IMO, step 3 is arse about. "3. Upload the badge using the tool (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/microbadge/create), and in the Admin notes, post a link to where you posted your badge in this thread for community discussion."

I believe it should read; "3. Post your badge in this thread for community discussion before uploading the badge using the tool (http://www.boardgamegeek.com/microbadge/create). Make sure you include a link to any approval poll in the Admin notes."

The bit about polls notwithstanding, I agree. That really should be more clear about posting a design for feedback before uploading.

The current Toronto Blue Jays fan microbadge uses the terrible logo that the Jays have finally discarded in favor of their updated old-school look. For those who want to display their affection for the sole surviving baseball team north of the border, I've made this.

Whilst I understand there are some experienced and long-standing designers whose badges are of an exceptionally high standard (garion and indigo immediately spring to mind).

However, I believe this forum serves several basic purposes:

1: A standard process new users can easily follow and gain feedback and/or guidance from more experienced designers

2: As a courtesy, to display your badges and skill to the general community (I've learnt a lot from seeing and investigating other people's badges)

3: Visibility of available badges. I've purchased several badges just because I saw them here, otherwise I would never have known about them.

4: Consistency and quality. The peer review process ensure sub-standard badges are rejected or improved before submission.

5: Community involvement. Everyone is able to express their opinion and or vote upon the suitability of proposed badges, not just the quality.

I'm sure there are more benefits (as well as deficits), and I don't want to subvert the submission of new badges by introducing unnecessary bureaucracy, but I think this forum assumes a certain place in the process.

Er, unfortunately there has been some recent evidence to the contrary. Drive-by submissions and ignoring suggestions sometimes work.

I know. I know. Review is voluntary and not enforceable. And it isn't perfect.

There also seems to be a small group of people whose only contribution is to click NO in the polls, probably because it's anonymous.

I just believe you need to set a standard (intangible as it is), otherwise there's no point even having this forum.

I am looking forward to this game!

As for your badges, The G needs to stand out more, but then I think it would be good. I don't think using the box cover works well enough, though; it looks too indistinct.

That's my .02
