Update 7-19-2010 The submissions seem to have fizzled out, but there is still plenty of available for contributors. Be sure to mention this list if you find anyone who still needs an avatar. Thanks!
_______________________________________________________________________
Update: 6-28-2010 After one week at least 36 BGGers now have an avatar, several have the needed GG to buy one, and several more are well on their way to getting theirs! The generosity of everyone has been outstanding and there is still plenty of GG available for active BGGers who are looking to buy their avatar. If you come across anyone who does not yet have an avatar and contributes to BGG in any way, please let them know about this Geek List.
_______________________________________________________________________

Update: Just when I thought BGG could not get any cooler, out of the blue the admins have kicked in 1000 GG towards this cause...I'm not even kidding. This means that we should be able to help fellow geeks get their avatars for a while.

HUGE thanks to everyone who has donated GG to make this possible!

_______________________________________________________________________

Every once in a a while I'll come across a user who contributes something valuable on BGG, yet they don't have an avatar. Avatars are a great way to identify someone and I love seeing what different users come up with. When I was a new user, it took me a while to save up for an avatar and this can be a daunting goal for new BGGers. Now that I've saved up some GG, I thought it would be cool to use some of that GG toward helping new users get their Avatars.

BGG has been a great gift to me and I hope to share this experience with any who might enjoy it. If you don't yet have an avatar and your lack of GG is what is preventing you from buying one, you've come to the right geeklist.

Details:

1. Only those who don't yet have an avatar should add geeklist items.
2. The geeklist item you post should be related to a contribution you have made to Board Game Geek.
3. Candidates should only add one item to this list.
4. Be sure to list the amount of GG you need in order to purchase your avatar.
5. Purchase your avatar when you have enough funds so that we can see who you are and so we can see the success of this drive.


I'll donate at least 100 GG and any GG tipped to this introduction will be distributed to the avatar seekers. I hope that others who have enjoyed BGG as much as I have will contribute to the entries as well so we can show new Geeks what a great community this is!

Alright, well, I suppose I'll list what I've contributed so far.

My Contributions that I can think of off the top of my head:

1) About 80% of the game images for the game "Alien Invasion USA"
2) Some necessary game images (game board maps of better quality, card groups, etc) for both Risk and Risk (Revised Edition) that were oddly missing from the database up to that point (Revised edition had few images before.
1b and 2b) None of my images so far have been of "people" or "creative" yet. All have been of game images, if that matters to anyone.

3) Several session reports, all done with a creative theme after my first one, which just chronicled a really interesting scenario in "Alien Invasion USA.
4) At least over 200+ web links to various game reviews; this was all before geekvideos became available as a feature
5) The children's game "Nino Delfino", which was unlisted before
6) German video reviews and overviews from SpieLama.de and Spielkult.de, respectively (I've done all their videos so far, all with their permission, of course. )
7) Some of the English video reviews done by Board to Death TV
8) I've clarified rules for some people for the game "Alien Invasion USA"
9) I think that's it for now. I do plan on doing both written and video reviews myself in the likely near-future, becoming a monthly or annual patron of BGG, as well as contributing more of everything I've listed above. laugh
9b) I'm not sure if this one counts, but for one G4GG Item, I donated enough GG to get it the GG pool up to the amount necessary to include the bonus game the host was giving away. It was only one time, because it was the only time I had enough GG to do it.
9c) I'm guessing the "contributions" only refers to game-relevant contributions to BGG. If we're also going by forum threads and replies, my list can go on further. laugh


Why I need GG for an avatar, despite doing all that:

Well, here's the thing. I have four priorities involving geekgold:

1) Giving geekgold to people: When I make a personal connection with someone on boardgamegeek in some way or form (so far, this has happened twice), I like to be generous with my geekgold if I have an excuse to give them some, since I'm also that way in real life with money, whether I have a lot or not.

2) Build my boardgame collection (at priority #2, as I'm sure is actually 1 lower than for everyone else here), thus the vast majority of my monthly GG at the current time is poured into the G4GG (because there are mega-bidders in those geeklists, and it's hard for me to compete, even if I put 20-50GG into something I really want ). This will likely continue until I have more games, and start seeing duplicates of the games I already have being listed in the G4GG geeklists more and more.

3) Microbadges (because if I get only 1 per month, I can slowly build my microbadge identity without being rendered unable to bid on the G4GG mentioned above. After all, this is only 8GG per month.

4) And then finally, we get the avatar. Since it's 30GG that I have to pay all at once, this is more like the "holy grail that I'll get eventually". Since it's so expensive, it takes a backseat to generosity and microbadges, and since it's abstract, it takes a backseat to building my game collection. My plan is, if I don't have a chance to get it any other way, eventually when I get enough money to do so reasonably, I'll just buy some geekgold via auctions and get it that way.


Amount I need:

As of right now, I need ~30GG.

I've been lurking around bgg for awhile now. This game is the first which inspired me to make a contribution. Less than a week ago I completed my first session report! All I have is the 2.90 from the session report, so I still need 27.10 to purchase my avatar shake Any help along the way is much appreciated.

The session report is located at http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/535318/easter-in-london-...

I'm really new, first time adding to a geek list, so I'm not sure if this will count as a contribution. I added the Promotional videos made by Fantasy Flight Games to the new video section for the appropriate games; including Horus Heresy, Starcraft, Chaos in the Old World and a few others. I also made a grammatical edit to a game entry.

As you can see from my profile I am real new and have only a few games under my belt. I plan on getting at least a small review up for the few games I have after I get some more plays in. This site has been very helpful in my new obsess...hobby. Now if it could just get me more people to play with.

According to my profile I would need 30 gg to get an avatar. I am willing to not take it if the is someone more deserving.

P.S. What the heck is the quick bar for?

I don't quite know if I'm worthy, but I'd love an avatar. I mostly just subscribe to the forums of games I know and love and answer rules questions when I can, and ask them occasionally. This thread:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/article/5090761

is probably the longest one I've started, getting really down and dirty with tricky rules interpretations. Kind of gives an idea of how I go about things, I suppose.

I also enjoy threads where someone asks for creative input, as I'm a video game designer IRL, so it's nice to use my career skills in new ways.

So if that deems me worthy, huzzah. If not, I'll live. If I were to get an avatar, I'd make it a picture of me anyway, so probably doing everyone a favour to keep me avatar-less

I contribute by buying loads of boardgames. I'm pretty much responsible for every new game my group tries. I even snatch up expansions for games that haven't actually hit the table yet. I leave no stone unturned!

So I deserve a geek gold for helping a crap ton of game designers not have to keep a day job!


11.17 gg...You'd think in six years on the site I'd have accidently earned the thirty gg by now...blush

My son would love an avatar (and I don't have nearly enough GG to get him one), he started a GeekList a while ago which might be considered 'contributing' to the site. He currently needs 29GG.

I guess my largest personal contribution(s) to BGG are my ongoing thread and GeekList reporting on the boardgaming sessions I run at a local school.

I haven't been on the geek for a year yet, but I've been gaming and playing games since my single-digit days in the 70's.

More importantly, I've been introducing people to new games, helping them understand games, helping them make connections to games they might enjoy for decades.

Although at this moment I have not a speck of geek gold, and even though I'm still trying to wrap my head around how to make use of BGG (WEBSITE AP!), I am very excited and ecstatic that it exists!

The post that came to mind falls in line with what I try and do in my offline-life with gaming and friends. Not a big deal IMHO, but can be a huge benefit to an inquisitive would-be-gamer who is struggling to find a path to the social experience they're hoping to find.

My little example contribution on the geek was regarding a first time Arkham Horror player. You can visit to read the post yourselves. Whether or not this qualifies for geek gold, I continue to be more and more inspired by the generous community that I've discovered here, and I look forward to engaging more and more (as time and my other commitments allow!)

Best,
A

My main contribution, which isn't large I'll admit, is adding items to the Wargames on your table geeklist. Warriors of God happens to be my favourite wargame at the moment.

I am another lurker who does not upload stuff just to get GG.

The only three things I care to mention are two session reports and a list of links that I try to paste for all those gamers asking about which games to play with their (non-ASL playing) spouse.

1. I had had my eyes on Fresco for a while and took part in the competition. When a friend bought it I jumped the gun to teach it. We had a blast and I tried to convey that in my report.

2. Our game group somehow got a copy of Carpe Astra and no one knew the rules. I printed out the rules and try to make sense of it (I usually try to practice playing with my animals before teaching a game, but since I did not have the copy it was hard). I was dissatisfied with the first game and got another one in.

3. Maybe not a contribution as such, but I try to post this list whenever I see a discussion about gaming with your spouse (since I love to do that).
Some geeklists that might be interesting:
The Quintessential Wife,Girlfriend and Spouse Recommendation GeekList.
Top 10+ spouce-friendly picks.
Meaty but social 2-player games.
Want your life partner to enjoy games more.
[url= http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/50455/2-player-meta-geekli...]List of all lists pertaining 2 players[/url].

If I, by your measure, qualify as a valid contributor I am going to toss my pride out the window and beg for a whopping 19GG. I am at 19 now but am planning to burn 8GG on a http://boardgamegeek.com/microbadge/2920 as soon as I get married ( July 7th 2010!! ).

I've been a BGG member for a while, but didn't start contributing much until here recently. Mostly I enjoy the whole Print n Play thing. My two biggest projects being the long OOP Magic Realm and Merchant of Venus, both of Avalon Hill fame. They were both a HUGE success with my little brother and we have played untold hours of both.

I recently lost my brother when he come home for lunch and surprised an intruder. Not only was he my main gaming partner but he was also my best friend. I've been thinking about making my avatar a tribute to my brother once I have enough GG.

I am 9 GG short of the required 30.


Edit: Avatar uploaded 7/20/2010. Sorry it took so long - I was looking for the right pictures and I've never made an animated avatar before. Thanks so much for the GG!

I'm fairly new to BGG and board gaming in general. I'm still learning about everything this community has to offer an I'm still in a soaking in phase. I have been learning about miniature painting and plan on adding some of my work to games for Descent and Space Hulk. If at all possible I would love to get myself an avatar, but I may be jumping the gun and need to just wait it out and save up enough to buy one the old fashioned way. As if right now my contributions are mainly just a daily active forum
user.

As of right now I have 2.24 GG which puts me at needing 27.74 GG for my avatar!

In a little over a year of using The Geek I am yet to add much in the way of uploads, although I am the first to admit I have got some tremendously valuable assistance, ideas and aids from other peoples wonderful contributions. I like to think I make smart, worthwhile comments in response to forums and other submissions when they're warranted (and try to keep the dumb, worthless ones to a minimum, even when they're warranted!)

BGG is nearly always my first port of call whenever I jump onto The Net these days, and rare is the day I don't pop on to see what's happening. As a result of that, I determined that I would support it as best I can - becoming a patron this year and intending to maintain that for the indefinite future.

I love using Marketplace and Trades, and I love the community spirit that permeates throughout this site... this list being a prime example of that!

Finally, I nearly always click-through on any advert links (except Tanga, who do not supply to Australia) in the hope that this also helps support the future of a site I really enjoy.

I need 7.58GG to get my Avatar, and some help with that would be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.

I'm just starting to dip my toes into the water around here.

I've already found this place to be an amazing resource for research and also the single best community I've encountered online.

My main contributions up until now have been offline. I'm the main game buyer in our group and I do all of the research for getting new games as well as all the rule learning and teaching. I'm also slowly working on expanding our game group and converting as many people as possible. My latest success was last week when my girlfriend and I went over to another couple's house who I've been slowly introducing to games (this was our 2nd game night with them). I got them hook line and sinker and heard the words: "Where do you find out about all these cool games?" I of course told them about this wonderful community. At which point they said "We'll do the research and buy the next game to play". Ahhhh music to my ears!!!

As my experience with games increases I am feeling confident about making more valuable contributions to this site and am greatly looking forward to doing so. If there is enough GG to spare for a budding user who currently has a few contributions under his belt but is looking for the encouragement to ramp up his contributions, then please send some GG my way (I still have yet to earn any GG so would need 30 modest ).

Well my contribution this far is meager. I have published some picture, done some geek moding and printed a lot of players aids for the games this site inspire me to buy. I also tries to write comments for the new games I play every month in Grimwold´s geeklists: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/54945/item/1303147#ite...

Hopefully will I succed in completing my own boardgame this autumn, because the creativity in writing, designing playing pieces etcetera is, besides playing and owning games, what really gets me going.

I have 3.65 GG so I would need 26.35 for a avatar.

I'm nowhere near 30GG. I've got 1GG at the moment thats 29 more to go. I don't think I'll ever save that much so I'd really appreciate some help to get me there.

My contribution to BGG is my GeekList which is about my thoughts on some of the games I play.

Being officially around BGG since over 6 month, but most of my contributions are geeklist items and comments. So far I only contributed some images and this only session report. And then I spend this GG on microbadges blush

So I am still missing 11.29 GG for an Avatar. And it will take month to get this by GeekMod image trials whistle

Thanks for helping me

HELLO!

I mean, hi. I've been around BGG for a bit, lurking, but I've been somewhat active over the last two months. My contributions are numerous and magnificent:

One session report for Advanced Squad Leader: Starter Kit #1
One review of The Battle For Hill 218
Several witty comments on GeekLists and forums.

That's about it. I am planning a few GeekLists, though. I'm not the kind of person to just *do* something when I first think of it. I have to ponder and dwell for awhile (I have an innate fear of sounding like an idiot).

Anyway, I currently have 2.12gg, thus needing 27.88 to get an avatar. I tried saving up before but I blew a bunch of it on some microbadges and in the games for GG auction. Most of the gg I've collected has come from tips, but I've made a few bucks GeekModding.

...Thanks!

I'm mainly a lurker, but always try and help out in forums with rules queries (only when I'm sure I know the answer!), or contribute when I feel I can add something to a discussion.

My biggest proudest achievement on BGG so far is receiving a thumb on two separate occasions from famous game designer Tom Lehmann, for helping out with some rules queries for Pandemic and its expansion.

I'm currently 7.02 GG away from an avatar. Any help is appreciated.

Hello! I have earnt a bit of GG in my time but I spent it on tempting, tempting microbadges!

I have mostly contributed to the Arcane Legions forum with images and topics but also try and contribute to the other games I love!

I need 28GG to get a (no doubt Ray Harryhausen themed) avatar.

Great list!

I have been on the geek for a few years now. This was the means by which I have become addicted to board games. I know I have gotten far more out of BGG then I will ever be able to give back.

I have written three reviews; Catacombs, Modern Art, & Sherwood Forest. I have also submited pictures from my first game of CC:A.

I am currently at 21.58gg, so I need 8.42 to get to 30.

Hi there )))
I'm brand new at BGG. And I just start to contribute to this site. I created and uploaded some "old-fashioned" photos of Memoir'44. Also some time ago I started to record plays and posted several session reports since then. I don't have an avatar yet and my current balance is 6.25. I understand that I miss a lot, but at least I should try )))
