I'm sorry but I enjoy the flame wars in the RSP threads!
I can not convince myself to join in but holy crap some of them are really good and the really good posts from each side are so compelling!
All I can say is keep them coming!

I have found alot of games by reading reviews and session reports that I have thought I would like and I have bought them from absorbing the information that I have gathered from this site!
I can say that only 1 game that I own was a dissapointment to me and my wife and I think that 1 out of 50 odd games is a good strike rate thanks to this site!

While I do enjoy eurovision, I like the contests on BGG better, even though I have not yet won anything I still hold the hope that maybe I will get a free game one day!

I really like the fact that alot of the games that I play are very good and if I have any questions about rules or other things the people who have designed the games are on this site and will more often than not answer any question you might have!

One of my favorite things here are the Games for GeekGold Geeklists. They are a great way to spend some Geek gold with the chance to win a free game. I have already won a game in the first month I participated and now I have posted a game lottery myself in the August version.

Because you've saved a ton of money not buying as many crappy games. I mean honestly, if you take a look at the amount of money you would have spent on games without the comments, reviews, session reports, etc. on BGG a small donation really isn't much to ask. You won't blink at spending $50 on a boardgame, but letting go of $15 to support this website is a struggle?

I love that the BGG community is diverse and includes members of so many nationalities, backgrounds, circumstances, and outlooks on life. For the most part, these wonderful people communicate their views with intelligence, consideration, passion, and humor.

About 2 or so weeks ago, I was in a discussion with a co-worker and the conversation of boardgames came up. I couldn't remember the name of a game I had growing up (Torpedo Run ) and stumbled upon the site.

I was hooked viewing and reading about games that I never knew existed and about games I have played and/or owned. I decided to donate to BGG after spending more and more time on the site.

I also ordered a game (Kremlin) on the marketplace, early in the week, after it caught my eye.

From what I have seen of the community, I am glad to support BGG! cool

Well .. I decided to support BGG, because I like the community here.
Most of the users seem to be adults and those who are not at least know how to behave.
Compared to boards like .. hmm .. pretty much any board dedicated to an online game, you might call this community here "sophisticated":
Users usually know where to post what, there is the RSP for flaming and trolling and having fun in general, but outside you see strict discipline and constructive thinking like in no other board known to me.
Usually I can tell apart people that post broken English as it is not their native language or that post broken English because they don't care. While the sooner are excused, I haven't seen the latter around here much.

Yes, I like the community here that makes visits to the 'geek an enjoyable happening
