I'm trying to add the people I usually play board games with to my play statistics. I enter their BGG usernames thinking this will make it appear in their plays too.

It does not seem as if it does. Is this nor supported by BGG and would they have to add the plays themselves?

That's correct - each player has to log their own plays. Sadly.

If it was possible, anyone could log plays for me. This could easily be abused!
That might be the reason, why you habe to record everything yourself.

Well, there's a simple workaround for that - trigger a notification for each user logged as a player, and give them the ability to remove themselves from that game.

Here's a thread that was started almost 5 years ago in which we discuss with an admin possible changes to the play logging system, including some form of what you're talking about. Before you get too excited, the admin recently said that this project is on hold, so I would say it's unlikely to happen any time soon. You can read the thread, though, to see why not everybody wants the feature you describe. For example, I would want the ability to opt out of even being notified. So that makes it harder for the programmers.

Different question on the same subject:
If I log all the plays for another user (in my case, my girlfriend), how can I find the plays I logged for her? (This may include external tools/websites that uses BGG's API to get that data)

Thanks
