Admins


The Geek is composed of a volunteer crew who work closely with both the developers of the site and, more importantly, the end users who interface with the database and forums. We are here to help! Really. If you have any questions or concerns about the content of any specific domain, please contact one of the admins for that Area. Below you will find a list of the people who are knowledgeable about the navigation and data entry for the site - use us as resources! If you contact someone on the list below who can't help you directly, they will contact the other content managers and get you the help you need. Don't be shy! The admins also help moderate the Forums, manage content approval not currently covered by GeekMod, resolve community issues, and in some cases write code.

If RPG Geek were a school, I'd be the class clown who, while generally liked by the kids and teachers, is never more than one demerit away from being thrown out.
If RPG Geek were a job, I'd be the happy-go-lucky guy just one rung below you on the work-scale that you would hate to see go because it means you're closer to the chopping block.
If RPG Geek were a small budget musical, I'd be the guy with the two-sizes-too-big shirt and funny accent who wixes up his merds and makes the audience laugh at his never ending ineptitude.

But RPG Geek is RPG Geek. And I'm here to help.

My Personal Goals for RPG Geek

  • To contribute to the worlds largest and most complete RPG database.
  • To help foster a community of vibrant posters to share ideas and information.
  • To promote site growth and provide a warm and hospitable place for people to come and be part of a welcoming community.

But most importantly, I wish to provide legendary service to the RPG community to help grow our hobby and enrich the lives of gamers everywhere.

I got tapped to be an Admin on Feb. 15, 2012, possibly to staunch the number of submissions that I personally contribute; I might as well be doing something constructive on the site as long as I'm here so much.

My main goal is going to try to be as helpful for users who are new to the submission process as Bob was to me when I first started.

Speaking of Bob, he and I work in tandem for most of the new game submissions to the database, especially with regard to untangling often confusing information that may (or may not be) available for a given product. I also try to keep the Image queues moving along briskly as the RPGG Image Admin.

Now that Bob has more or less stepped down from his main Admin duties, I will be performing the majority of RPG database approvals, as well as continuing to act as RPG Image Admin.

I have an extensive knowledge of the site's structure from the point of view of a user, so can typically point you in the right direction for tips on how to use RPG Geek.

Amongst other things, I can help you with:

  • Moderating and editing database content
  • Issuing microbadges (but not moderating or editing them)
  • Moving and pinning forum posts
  • Moderating and moving images
  • Moderating and moving files
  • Approving RPG-related guilds

From an RPG perspective, I am the admin with the most knowledge on gamebooks and LARPs. (I have plenty of experience with tabletop RPGs too.)

I am based in the UK, so my time zone is broadly UTC+0 from November to March and UTC+1 from April to October. I am typically on-line during weekdays, with more limited availability on evenings and weekends.

To get involved in helping improve the site yourself, consider looking at:

In April 2010 I became a regular RPG Geek Admin
until March 2015, I approved most database submissions on the RPGG domain
I have now passed those duties onto Steve Dubya

I will continue my Geek wide admin activities of working in the queues for
company, people and links
and
helping users with linking pending database submissions


I am also the GOB (Grumpy Old Bastard) of the RPG Geek Team, see Tribute to Guy Stuff Gamers

It was January 2012 when I peeked into RPGG, and it was down the rabbit hole with one-way ticket. I've only been playing RPGs since 2012, but the hobby has already brought so much joy and happiness into my life and I can't imagine anything ever taking the place of RPGs in my heart.

I found my home at RPGG and in July 2013 I became one of the RPG Geek Admins. My goal is to help in any way I can to keep the community growing and being as welcoming and amazing as it is. My focus is in forum moderation and I hand out non-purchasable microbadges as well when need be. And help with anything else I can help with.

In addition to dabbling in both boardgame, RPG, and computer game design, I am particularly interested in helping out with D&D 2nd through 3.5 edition, Pathfinder, a variety of independent games such as Everway, and any and all magazines. I'm also the Genre Police, and as you can tell from the state of crime on the streets, a policeman's job is never done. I'm usually friendly, but occasionally cranky (in a friendly sort of way). I really don't mind out of the blue queries although I don't promise to have all the answers.

Heavily into RPGs from the very early days of D&D including being an organiser of Arcanacon, a major Australian RPG convention, until Daughter The Elder was born and we ran out of spare time. Covered lots of stuff last century, D&D everything up to AD&D 2nd edition, Call of Cthulhu, RuneQuest, various systemless and other stuff in convention tournaments. Moved much more into Boardgames since then. General Admin about town, or Admin Without Portfolio on RPG and BGG. Forums, etc.

I've started roleplaying with Advanced Dungeons & Dragons (2nd Edition), followed by Vampire: The Dark Ages, GURPS (3rd Edition) and Dungeons & Dragons (3rd Edition). After that, I've ventured into the realm of a home brew system, URG, created by a friend of mine. I'm still hoping to create the perfect (for me) RPG system, and I'm collecting RPG systems for inspiration (as well as collecting RPG settings for inspiration for my own settings). As a result, I know a bit of a lot of systems, but there's little I know in detail, as I seldom venture past the core books.
I joined as an RPGG admin on June 22th, 2009. Though I try to keep an eye on everything that is going on, I mostly focus on new submissions.
