Do you log online matches here on BGG? Like boardgamearena.com, wargameroom.com, Vassal or mobile apps?
And if the opponentes are AIs? Do you still log?

Nope. Only physical plays against in room opponents.

You can do whatever you like. I've only played a few online and a few more against AI. I meant to log the ones against human opponents but I think I forgot. Some people put the the site/software they used in the location field to make it easier to see which plays were online.

I log face-to-face plays. The only online plays I log are Imperial Assault play by forum campaign missions that take a month or two to complete.

I log everything. Vs human or AI, face-to-face or online. I'm trying to track how much play each game is getting. By limiting it to just face-to-face encounters, what I am tracking is not how much I like a game, but how many friends I have that game or how many opportunities I have to game (which, unfortunately, is below what I would like for both). It just doesn't give me an accurate read on what I am attempting to track.

I log computer plays since it's very similar to soloing through a game with an automated opponent. The only game I do in practice, though, is Acquire, which I play on the PC. I also note when it's played on the computer since I also own it in cardboard and would love to play it more.

I have played 2-3 games on BoardGameArena, but lost interest in that pretty quickly. It's really the people in the gaming experience that I love, not the gaming experience in isolation.

I log my PBEM Vassal plays of wargames as a single play. Those typically take months to resolve.

I don't log online plays against AIs.

It's really up to what you want to do.

I don't log app plays (after playing in the StarRealms online tournament for a few seasons that would make a whack of mostly lost plays)

So physical games solo or in a group. However I would likely log online plays on something like tabletopia(?) if i ever get around to setting it up. I'd probly log PBEM as well.

When I play online against an actual opponent, I'll log it. When I play solo with actual cardboard, I'll log it. When I play solo on the computer, I don't. So what it boils down to for me is if I'm making an effort to play the game. A three-minute game of Star Realms against the app's A.I. doesn't 'count', but when I set up and play Age of Steam alone for an hour, it sure does
