Note: The Campaign is officially closed. Instructions below detailing how to participate are left intact for historical purposes only. The idea lives on - you are strongly encouraged to employ useful titles for all your threads, but the campaign will no longer provide incentives for doing so.

This list is where Patrons sign up and track progress in the Campaign to make the Rules Folders more useful (the primary campaign discussion thread is here, and the thread for individual participation is here). Patrons will take responsibility for cleaning up specific game folders, and will use their entries in this list to maintain records of what they've accomplished.

IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE ADDING ANY GAME TO THIS LIST
Adding a game to this list represents a commitment to become a Patron for that game. By becoming a Patron, you commit to go through that games Rules Folder, send GeekMails to the original posters of threads that have non-descriptive titles, suggest names that would be more appropriate, and pay a 1 GeekGold award to each user who cooperates and responds to one of your requests (if you can't afford to do this, please just lend your moral support). Patrons also agree to list their successful conversions, using the format I've used in the initial post for Defenders of the Realm.

Patrons also agree to conduct themselves in a friendly and helpful manner. We are shepherds, not policemen. Nobody is obligated to comply with our requests - they do so of their own free well. Patrons will not get into arguments with thread owners, nor will they represent themselves in anything but a positive fashion. Remember that the people we contact are the people we hope to serve.

If you can agree to all that, you're Patron material. I'm sure you'll find it very rewarding, but bear in mind that it is also a responsibility and a commitment. Please be sure you're ready to follow through before you sign on.

Selecting your game
The first step is to look in the list and see if your game has already been selected (threads are ordered alphabetically to make that easy). Most games have a manageable number of threads for a single Patron to handle - DotR, which I used to test the method, had 169 rules threads, and I issued 19 requests, which gives you an idea.

Game with huge numbers of threads
Some games have huge numbers of threads, and would require too much time, and too much Geek Gold paid out in rewards, for any single Patron to take on solo. In such cases, we multiple Patrons can select the same game, and be responsible for a subset of that games Rules Question Threads. Since it has already been discussed, I'll use Arkham Horror as an example.

Go to the Arkham Horror game page, click Browse in the Forums section, and you'll see that the Rules folder has 1481 threads (as of this writing). That is too much for one Patron. The folder grows continuously at the new end, so we will take it on starting at the old end and working back to front. We will use the creation dates of the threads to delineate the working areas for Patrons. The threads are presented 50 at a time, with the last page containing any fraction (1 to 50 threads), so using my DotR numbers as a rule of thumb, 4 pages seems reasonable. (We can't go by page numbers, because what's on page 30 today may be on page 31 tomorrow, but it's a useful way to estimate what you'll tackle.).

There are currently 30 pages, so click the last page, then from there work back to page 27, and note that the first thread on that page is dated Feb. 1, 2007, so as the first Patron for Arkham Horror, I would note that I am taking on all threads posted on or before that date, and invite more patrons to join. The next Patron might accept the block posted between Feb. 1, 2007 and Mar. 27, 2008, and so on (see "Formatting your game item listing", below). The final Patron for this game would take everything after the penultimate Patron's block, and would include new threads going forward.

Don't take on too large a block initially! Nothing prevents the same Patron from taking on a block, then taking on a second one upon completion of the first. 2 or 3 Patrons might leapfrog through a big game like that, one chunk at a time.

Transferring your game
No matter how good our intentions, the time will come when a Patron can no longer maintain that game. When that time comes, please announce it and contact me (or whoever may have taken my place by that time), so we can find a new Patron, who would take over responsibility and continue the work for that game. I would even encourage people who want a particular game, and see it already taken, to comment that you would be available should the post ever become available.

Formatting your game item listing
Feel free to add personal touches, but please include the following info in your listing:
The number of requests you've sent
The number of changes that have been implemented
A list of the specific changes (formatted as in my Defenders of the Realm entry - see here

Also, if you're working on a block of threads for a game that requires multiple patrons, list the start and end creation dates for the block of threads you're working on.

Sending requests for title changes
Patrons may want to write GeekMails individually, but having a template to work from can make the job easier. Here's a possible format (change parentheses to square braces for thread link, customize names, change blah blahs as appropriate):


Subject: Rules question thread

Hi thread_owner,

I'm working for the Campaign to make the Rules Folders more useful. Many rules question threads have generic titles that give no hint as to their content, which in turn makes it harder for people to search for answers.

I happened to notice (url=)this thread(/url) of yours, titled blah blah. I think blah blah would be a better name for it, but feel free to word it differently so long as it achieves the purpose of making its contents clear.

It's quite simple to change the title; just follow the link and edit your initial post. If you'd be willing to do that, I'll give you 1 geek gold in token of appreciation. More importantly, you'll be helping others who have questions in the future to find answers more easily.

Regards,
patron_name


Rewarding users who change their thread titles
When somebody responds positively, please use the link (which you've hopefully saved) to visit the thread, verify the change, and tip the initial post with 1 Geek Gold. Tipping there rather than through a user's profile makes it easier to verify that they received their reward. Also, update your listing accordingly (use the same format as in my DotR entry). You needn't do that with each success individually;, feel free to add 5 or 10 at a time in blocks, so that doesn't become a chore, but be sure to get it posted in the end. We want to see what we've accomplished, and where.

If you've read this far, and want to sign up, I'd like to congratulate you. Together we truly will make BGG a better resource for everyone!

I will volunteer to take care of American Megafauna its expansion (American Megafauna (second edition) Expansion Set) as well as Origins: How We Became Human and its expansion (Origins: The Age of Reason).

At quick glance it looks like there are about 25(ish) threads needing attention (among all four rules forums). It should be easy enough.

However, I don't have that much GG so I'd like to take up the offer to have GG provided. Any that I don't use will be tipped back into this list. Thanks.

[3/7/11: I have created a separate entry for Origins to make it easier to see in this alphabetical list]


UPDATE: 3/7/11
There are 6 threads in American Megafauna needing correction. All users have been contacted. Three corrections so far:

Wulf Corbett
Old: I may be getting this wrong…
New: I may be getting this wrong... (Immigrant movement, borderlands & empty Biomes)
link

Karsten Engelmann
Old:Our first couple of plays - a couple of questions
New:Continental Drift & Dogface (omnivore)
link

jackalope
Old:Two Questions
New:Trapped immigrants and Continental drift with no Africa
link

Update: 4/22/11
I'm finally getting back to this project. The three outstanding threads remain unchanged. I'll assume that those users haven't checked in on the site in a while. Let's consider this one done.


There are no threads in American Megafauna (second edition) Expansion Set that need correcting. Mark as done.

I'll gladly patron this game that is new to my collection. It doesn't have too many threads in the rules forum but I'm trying to make sure I didn't crew anything up in my first play through so this'll give a good chance to read all of them.

Initial appraisal coming by end of day tomorrow.

Due to other time commitments I'd like to pass on the reigns for this entry. There hasn't been a lot of necessity for it anyway and having never played the game I found it a bit difficult to know when more specific titles were even necessary.

All right, I'll take this one on. Betrayal is tricky because it has a lot of scenarios, and many questions are scenario-specific, but you want to avoid spoilers in thread titles. The principle I used is that a thread that just says "Haunt 13 question" is good enough, since looking at all the threads for the haunt you're looking for won't give you too many. But if it doesn't have the number, or it has just the number for one that changed between editions, I did my best to come up with a suggestion that also said a bit about what the question was without being a spoiler.

I don't have a lot of time right now, but I can't resist being part of an initiative like this.

So I'll take on my current favorite game, including the expansions.
(And yes, I'm leaving Combat Commander: Pacific to someone else.)

Now there's a metric ton of rules questions for this one, so I'll take it slow and report as the results trickle in.
And if I ever run out of Geekgold (and I will), I'll just come back here and beg for some.

(Seriously, couldn't all patrons receive some sort of sponsorship from the Geek? After all, we're doing all this for the greater good.)

I'll take on the Dragon Expansion as well. I"m adding a separate list item for it, because I don't want to complicate my original Defenders of the Realm entry (which serves as a template). There are only 48 threads in the folder, so this should be easy.

There are other expansions with their own folders, which anyone else is welcome to take on. If nobody does, I'll probably add them one at a time to this post, although it may take awhile as I'm pretty busy with my other duties.

I'll add this one, as I just acquired it and have been looking up some rules clarification anyway!

After taking a look at the rules forum here are some stats:
26 threads in all
11 threads that need editing

status (15th of May 2015):
- threads reviewed: 33
- change requests sent: 11 (need to send 2 more)
- titles changed: 4 of 11 (36%)
- 1 poster (of two threads) hasn't logged in since 2008 so I don't expect him to answer
