This the Third geeklist out of three geeklists that intend to make BoardGameGeek(BGG) better.

I: What New Things Would You Like to See in BGG ( http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/16599/page/2 )

II: What Things that People do You like in BGG (http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/16620 )

III: What Things that People do you hate in BGG(link will be here)

In this geeklist you need to write what do you hate that people do so they'll know that interupts you and do whatever they can not to do it again.

Let me also please say that I don't think BGG is a bad place as it is now, I love BGG and I want to thank Aldie for spending so much money and time to gamers around the world will enjoy this exellent website, but if we can improve it, why not?

When people write the subject of the massage in all capitals or say somthing in their mssage in capital letters (assuming they are not explaining an important game rule....) then it really interupts me, I like "quit" posts, and I don't want to hear you "screaming".

I hate it when someone :thumb up: one of the things they did or rate it highly. If you posted somthing you should think it's good (otherwise din't post it) and don't waste other people time checking what you did if you are the only one that thinks it's good... Sorry if this one came a little aggresive.

Please use correct english. I know that at my first month in BGG I didn't do this and I'm very sorry about that, but I think people should use correct english when they post and reread what they write. Of course people that don't speak english well (like me) should just do their best. Also I don't expect perfect english from everyone but just to see that you reread what you post will be nice.

"Haven't played yet, but looks great!"

If you haven't played a game, then you have no business assigning a rating to it. Depending on the game, a single complete play or even a partial play can be enough to justify a numeric rating; after all, I and many other people read the comments instead of just looking at the numbers. But, if we were all to start assigning ratings to games based merely on how much they look or sound like a game that we would like, then dozens of unreleased games would be getting nines and tens across the board, rendering the BGG rating system meaningless.

I make a list. I post simple guidelines for posting to the list. And, then posters argue about my rules. Like it's any of their business. Get out of my head! Surely, I get final say on my own list!angry

6. Board Game: Power Grid [Average Rating:7.90 Overall Rank:34]
N/A
People that play a game once, get the rules wrong and write a review. Extra suckage for reviews that try to offer strategy that isn't valid, let alone useful.

Let's face it, many of us are not up on recording our plays here at the Geek. For some of us, just keeping our collections up to date is a challenge. Sp please do not look at my profile and assume that every game I've ever played on every date is anywhere near approaching accurate (I try to put in plays but often forget).

I say this not because of anything that has directly happened to me, but that I've seen it mentioned in other posts when critisizing someone's opinions or rules knowledge about a particular game.

So I went down do my FLGS today looking for LOTR because I heard it has lots of PI, but they didn't have it. So, I took a trip to TRU, because I heard they their games were BOGOF. Unfortunately, they didn't have it either. However, they did have ASL, which a grognard like myself should love, but after playing it I found the game caused too much AP. I also prefer games with simultaneous play instead of a TBS.

It really frustates me how everyone uses acronyms for everything. Yes, maybe 75% of the people know what the acronym stands for, but there are a lot of people who don't. Is it really that hard to type a few words?

I hate it when people create a forum and just post a link, as though I should run off to another site to read something they found interesting. If you want people to talk about something neat that you read, tell us about it. Don't just point us to it.

What if I created a forum that simply said:

That really neat blue house down the street.

I wouldn't expect you to come trotting over to my neighborhood and then go to BGG and post a reply.

SO, please don't post the following

Interesting: www.strangenakedladies.com

And then post a reply like...

Yeah, I understand. www.yourmotherknowsbetter.com/article52.htm

I HATE IT WHEN PEOPLE PUT BUSEN MEMO ON GEEKLISTS JUST FOR THE HELL OF IT. I mean, even though this game LOOKS great (I'll admit to never having played it), the only thing more annoying than seeing it posted agin and agin are hearing G.W. Bush's godawful speeches. Their getting worse, too!

(P.S., if you don't understand the term, "facetious," please don't bother posting a reply.)
