Ok... right off.. this isn't a flaming thread or a trolling type thread either.

I was just curious as the site grows and people come and go and more and more personalities are interacting with each other... that will obviously sometimes bring conflicts, disagreements and disputes. That's not really a big deal... just part of life.... which happens here probably far less than in the "real world" in fact.

Anyway... I just thought I'd ask people here a few q's.. AND NO NAMING NAMES PLEASE.

Just post numbers to give an answer as this is just a poll for curiosity to get an idea what the community as a whole is feeling about the site.

Here's the format:

Q1:

How many users (can include admins etc) on BGG do you specifically "REALLY dislike"... to the point that you hate almost everything they write... basically to the level that you consider them your "enemy"?

Q2:
How many users (can include admins etc) on BGG do you specifically "dislike" but not quite enough to call them an enemy... just that they grate on you with some or many of their comments, actions and general behavior.

Q3:
How many users on BGG (can include admins etc) do you specifically like or feel contribute positively to BGG (rounded off to a ballpark figure on this one (10,hundreds,thousands etc)... as I'm sure some of us like tons of users).

Q4:
Have you ever considered leaving BGG to NEVER come back again because of the behavior, comments or actions of a specific user/users/admins on BGG? Yes= 1 No= 0

Q5:
Do you think BGG is better(1), the same(0) or worse(-1) as when you first came to the site?


I'll state again strongly... [/size]NO SPECIFIC NAMES PLEASE[/size] just so we don't get derailed and off topic into any personal attacks.

So here's my answers and the format to use to answer:

Q1 0
Q2 1
Q3 10,000+
Q4 0
Q5 1






My personal view is that the site has growing pains but gets better over time and the ratio of great community and database contributors far far outweighs the few bad apples or slightly irritating folks that frequent the site. In my opinion this is clearly the best hobby website on the net and one that is invaluable in spreading the word of boardgaming beyond the world of just hardcore "gamers".

Q1 0
Q2 0
Q3 thousands
Q4 1 (after the banning incident, because I oppose banning in general)
Q5 1 (and still improving every day)

My personal view is almost identical to yours.

At times Q2 might have been more than 1, but after a day it dies down. What can I say, I'm a sensitive guy.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Q1: 2 (biting my lips not to name them!)
Q2: 2
Q3: 100+: "really like", 1,000`s: contribute positively
Q4: 1 (I`m with Lajos at this point)
Q5: 1

I would really like to see less LOUD SPEAKERS with cynical comments without much depth but just for the noise.
I would like to see more thinking here.

1) 1
2) 5
3) 20 (rising)
4) 0
5) -1

The site got worse since Barnes and robartin left.
I think this site with its great amount of information on all type of games (even guys from consimworld come here to look at the wargame images) shouldn't have scared off the AT-clique.

[I will delete this post if the "AT vs. Euro" flame starts again.]
