I don't know if there's a "top out" limit to the number of games you can register, but I'm just getting started and now the site will no longer permit me to enter any more games! This is a great place to keep track of current games, previously owned games and wanted games. What is wrong and what can I do?cry

If you don't mind my asking, what do you mean by "registering" games? What is it that the site isn't letting you do? What error message are you getting?

I would have the same questions about what you're trying to add. There shouldn't be any restrictions on adding things to your Collection here.

There are people with 100's and 1000's of games in their collection, so your 144 definitely isn't capped off.

There's definitely not a limit - I have seen users who have several thousand games listed in their collections. It should be as simple as clicking the 'add game' at the bottom of the game profile, or changing the 'game status' to 'owned' on the list after using the search function. It would definitely be helpful if you included the error message that is showing up.

I'm not getting any error messages, it's just that when I go to "profile" and click on owned games it brings up the "add a game" option, but when I click on it nothing happens.

But when I go to "profile" and click on "games owned", it brings up the option to "add a game", but the site will not allow me to do this. It worked fine in this manner up until yesterday when the site would no longer allow me access to enter games in this manner. Should I be doing something different?

I'm not sure why that isn't working for you.

Try using the search bar at the top of the page - type in the game title, click 'go', and then click on the 'status' box next to the appropriate search result. Check the 'owned' box, and click 'save'. Perhaps that way will work for you instead.

I had never seen that until now either - it's pretty handy!

Try going to the page of the game you want to add and at the very bottom you will see something like "add to my collection". Click on that and you can add that game.

This is a quick way to add games to your collection here on BGG. Another way is to go to a game's page, then scroll to the bottom and click "Add a copy to your collection".

Make sure when you do it this way (I do it this way all the time) that the box "Mark as owned" is checked. If it's not, you won't see it. Hopefully it's that simple.

easier way is to type the name in the search box at the top of the main page, hit the go button, then a list will come up, scroll down to the game, go over to the status area, click in that area, then select whatever suits your needs

Excellent call! He has several games entered as owned and unowned.

BRENT: It will be safer entering your collection through the top menu My Geek (wait for a menu to appear) and pick Collection. OR through the under your name here in the forums then pick Collection. This will give your entire collection, not just owned games.

WClick the here and pick Collection.


To remove a duplicate, click on the red X to the far right.

To change a game from unowned to owned, click in the Status column on the line of that game.

Add a game, you know, and they will show up in this view, but won't show up as owned unless you click the Owned box. You can make them owned as I explained above.

(You probably don't want to quote this message: it's pretty arcane.)

Probably really obvious, but do you have pop-ups blocked for this site ?

That wouldn't be considered pop-up but blocking java-script could do it but he likely at least have some java-script allowed =P

Running No-script? What browser?
