With the rapid GeekGold devaluation caused by "record shattering amounts" given out for financial contributions, it might be nice to acknowledge other types of contributions to the site as well.

Do you feel like there's not enough incentive for people to post mediocre review content as it is?

Besides, GG is only devalued if you're using it for auctions. Any of the fixed-price uses remain fixed-price.

I'd certainly prefer to see incentives that rewarded better-quality reviews, including microbadges that were based on something other than quantity. The current distinction between a mediocre review (1 GG) and an excellent review (5 GG) is pretty minimal.

The attitude that reviews in general are mediocre is part of the problem.

And there are other uses for GG besides auctions, like using it as an incentive or reward for other users. I run a challenge that encourages people to write reviews after playing a game ten times, and I'd like to be able to give away more significant prizes.

Finally, it's just nice to acknowledge people's contributions of all sorts. BGG wouldn't be where it is today without the user-provided content.

I'd like to see the reward for uploading images be a reverse exponential relationship to the number of existing images a game already has.



First one to upload a components shot of a game? 5 GG.


1,425th person to upload random shot of your weekly session with Bob and Larry? 0.25gg (floor)

... thus creating an absolutely horrible incentive to produce haste rather than quality. Very short sighted and wrong headed.

How about if you use some of your windfall to reward the better ones you find ?

If there was a change, I'd prefer to see a range like we have for session reports (.2, .4, .6, .8, 1.0) where each image is voted on for its own quality.

I just read this interview with Aldie where he says that "Reviews are the #1 thing people are looking for these days."

He's probably referring to popular video reviewers who are already getting their hookers and blow, and would barely notice a boost to their GG rewards.
