Well I'm not sure if this is correct to post here, but what do you guys think of this:

I emailed him requesting an explanation, since he is the only person keeping me from having the most plays of Get Hooked this month.

Maybe he is entering data for several months, but doesn't want to take the time to separate it for each individual day.

But seriously, I can't believe you care enough to make a post about it. Do we get some kind of reward for having the most plays of a game?

I came across this user :
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/profile.php?action=gamesplayed&...
1648 games played in one month

I understand that it's a lot of work to log games played on the correct dates, but massive logging like this tends to influence some of the stats (like total games played by month, play graphs by game, ...).

No point in emailing him. If he is playing that many games he will not have time to reply to you

There must be better things to do with one's time than to worry about how many games someone else has claimed to play in any given amount of time. If one has time to care about the number of games played, then one has more constructive things to do with one's time. E.g., to question why others would give a rat's *** over number of games played in a month. goo

This is why the only meaningful stat is the number of unique players, not the total games played.

Well I do kind of care about games played. For example, I can look at my friend's list and see what games I missed out on during their gaming night. Also it is rather fun to check if you have played more of game that month than anyone else. That's what I was doing when I discovered that someone had played Get Hooked 64 times in one day! Obviously this guy is full of BS! These stats are reported for each game, so it does matter, even if it is not terribly important as others have pointed out.

Correct. It's the only one I use. However, it still distorts numbers, as this fellow will make it look like a ton of games were played by one more person in October than was actually the case.

Aldie seemed to think some of these were bugs (as it happens more than it should and with people he knows who don't do this)
