I am not new here, but I am not sure where else to put my question.

In geeklists I see a lot of people put inside their comment for the game they are listing other games with the pictures of them. How do they do this? Thanks.

To make a link to a game, you use the drop-down above the editing field, where it says "Insert Geek Link" in its unchosen state, choose "Board Game", and then search for the game you want using the input line -- Tic-Tac-Toe.

You may also input alternate text to say something like "Click here to see Tic-Tac-Toe".

To insert a picture, you use the "imageid" tag and the number of the image -- typing something like (imageid=2497953 small), but using brackets instead of parentheses, will give you this:



Or you could say "medium" and get this instead:




If you click on the "QuickQuote" widget at the bottom of my note here, you can see exactly what I've done.

Ah I see so it is not something special, they are using the actual image for the game and then they link the board game. I thought it was something else, thanks for the clarification.
