Author: Zimeon
When I enter a game, I can choose whether to enter the size in centimeters or the why-are-some-countries-still-using-this inches.

But when I enter a game page, it's displayed in inches. And really, that tells me next to nothing. Sure, I can multiply it with 2.5 but is there a way to make it display in centimeters?

If you mouse over the size in inches, it shows a box that includes sizes in both inches and centimetres.

DUH!

All this time and I haven't noticed that.
It COULD display both (grumble, grumble).

Feel free to start a site in your metrically progressive country.

You mean BGG isn't free to display the metrics that the world uses?
