Clicking on a Games Designer's Badge will take you to their Designer's Record in the Geek database. In order to be a Game Designer, there is a multi-step process. (1) The geekmember obviously need an account on BGG. (2) They must also be entered into the system as a Person, with their name linked as the designer for some game in the system. (3) Admin verifies that Game designer wants link, opt in not opt out. (4) Admin lastly links Person and BGG User

Clicking on a Games Publisher's Badge will take you to the Publisher's Record in the Geek database.
