The list of Martins games on this designer-page is not complete. For example "Tempus", "Sixteen Thirty Something", "Lords of Creation" and other early stuff is missing.

How could one improve that? Are users allowed to edit such a list? Or should I write an email to the BGG-crew?

Abridged list of notable games, so not trying to be complete. It's either a wiki or submit a correction. In either case, hit 'edit'

Besides, if you want the full list you go to the "Linked Items" Module and see all 10 pages of that list. There doesn't need to be duplication. And you can sort/filter the Listed Items in a number of useful ways

I'm a quitter. I come from a long line of quitters. It's amazing I'm here at all.

I can feel bits of my brain falling away like wet cake.

Yes, the abridged list here is 43 games long -- already quite long, as these things go. He's certainly a prodigious designer, but I suspect that the list could use some trimming. Is Clash of Wills: Shiloh 1862 really all that "notable"?

For the full list of 96 games, you can flip through the Linked Items as suggested above, or you could do an advanced search.

As with most things Internet/BGG there's a lack of clarity over what constitutes "notable" designs. Does this mean "highest ranking", "biggest selling", "most innovative", "most influential", "personal favourite", I could go on, but you (hopefully) get my point. Personally, I'd say that the first 20 of Martin's games listed by rank would qualify in one or more of the categories that I've listed. But there are definitely some notables on later pages.

Thanks a lot to you and Bruce Murphy.
Yes, I overlooked the "notable". the new BGG-design still leaves room for improvements in clarity, at least for simple minds like me ;-).

The full list is what I really wanted, and it's there in all of Martins glory.

As I now discovered the "real" list (thanks to you too), which can be sorted nicely for BGG-rank - I would say you question Shiloh rightly.
At least if we us high BGG-rank as being a good measurement for "notable".

Shiloh is in the bottom half of Martins list. While on the other hand Tempus is the best-ranked game missing on the notable list.

But on the whole the notable list consists mainly of high-ranking games and seems to be quite adequate.
