I would like to see a specific user's games for sale/trade. I know the other user's log-in name. I also have a log in name. Where do I go when I first log on to 'the geek'?

Just view their profile, it is all there.

Direct link would be in the form: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/user/voltman

Replace voltman with the GeekID of the person you are interested in. The alternate method - use the Search box above. Change the first drop down from Games to Users. Enter the information in the second box and away you go.

But I don't see where I can input geekid on the home page.

To search for users from any page, you can use the search box at the top. Switch the drop-down menu from "games" to "users."

To update your own profile, go to your profile (click on My Geek). In the various boxes you will see a little pencil icon. This lets you edit the contents of that box.

At the top of your browser window - you should see two lines of menus.

The first one starts Welcome voltman, then has a link for [Geekmail], then has the Search box. It is here you can search for other users (changing the first drop down from Games to Users as I mentioned).

The second line (Dark Blue Background) begins BoardGameGeek then has Browse, then My Geek. Click on My Geek and you should jump to your profile.

Alternatively, you could click on the profile icon under on of your posts in this thread (the first icon that looks like a person). Or you can go to this link: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/profile.php?action=viewmine
