I'm sure this has been asked before, so I hope someone can pint me to the correct thread, but

If I list my games played per month
http://boardgamegeek.com/plays/bymonth/user/moorwild/subtype...

I have 16 games in december in the year 0000 ....

However, when I click to see which games those are (eg by clicking on By Date, or By Game) I don't get any games ....

So, how to get rid of these ghost games?

Cheers!

I have one. My best guess is either test data that was mass loaded at some point and never cleared out, or some issue when recording a play that causes a partial record to be written that gets 0000 as a default year. That year is probably not configured in the necessary table that is used in a query to display your results, so you never get any results when clicking on it.

Weird.

This happens when you enter a play with no date (backspace on the date).

I actually use this to keep track of the way I use expansions so that the plays for expansions will show up when I search for expansions or look at my collection but not when I look at the games I played.

Don't count on this sticking around. Accepting a play without a date might be considered a bug, and could be fixed.
