If I posted in the wrong area, please redirect.

Can BGG switch to how they list game expansions? If you register I played Carcassonne with three expanisions it reads (if I click played them all) as I just played four games on that date. If you could instead click you own a game and then within that game you could click what expansions you own IMHO it would provide better metadata and make tracking games played easier. As it is, I never list the expansions.

People actually record their games played?

...I'm too busy either playing games, or being a forum troll.

I don't understand the game play recording thing, either.

I hear Allen, though, and his point surely makes sense.

I recorded games when my collection was bloated (at least it felt like that to me). So I checked what games I am actually playing and how often. Then I sorted through those that were not played at all or only very seldom and decided which I wanted to keep nonetheless. The rest I sold and/or exchanged for new ones.

The thing with the expansion is irking me as well. I do not mind much, but it would be nice to have expansion plays be a subpart of regular played games.

While I kinda agree, aren't there some expansions that can be played as a standalone version? Or where you can mix and match various expansions, possibly without the base game? I'm thinking Ascension or possibly Dominion here. Wouldn't that make it a little tricky?

Moved to Suggestions.

Not sure if I'd like this as a default but I think as an optional customisation it would be handy.

People sometimes put a quantity of "0.1" for expansions when they do play logging. Personally I don't bother, and just note in the comment which expansions I played with.

I will normally record that I played the base game. There are some exceptions; for instance, I will state that I played a specific Power Grid or Ticket to Ride map.
