Hi folks, I can't find any info about this, so apologies if it's old-hat, but I play some games with other BGG members, and so when I log plays I put their username in the relevant fields. However those plays don't show on their played lists.

Does that mean if 5 BGG'ers play a game, they each need to log the game?

If they want to see it in their list of plays, then yes, they need to log it AFAIK.

Generally, you can't affect another person's account (while I know that you have good intentions, there is the possibility that someone would use it negatively). Same reason as microbadges can't be directly gifted to another person.

No. They don't NEED to.

But if they want it show up for them in their list of logged plays, then yes, they would need to log it on their own account.

If/when play recording gets re-written, play-sharing is one of the planned improvements. For more info, see here:

Tomorrow, it will be 3-1/2 years since that thread was started. I would love to see logging (and reporting) improved, but my opinion of log-sharing has not changed: it must be optional.

I get the whole opt-in stuff, but shouldn't be too tricky to say "anything from my 'friends' is allowed, ignore anything else".

Shame about the update-silence. It does seem odd that the premier site for gaming doesn't seem to get any updates ever.
