UPDATE: This exchange inspired a geeklist where users can add ideas for ways to improve the spirit of BGG. Please visit that list and add content...

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/22020


This was at first a selfish plea for five thumbs. It has become a pay-it-forward GeekThumb Exchange forum. Feel free to join in.

"I still haven't figured how to link my geeklists to the new BLOG feature. So, two of my more humorous geeklists have washed downstream without much chance at life... "

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/21675

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/21949

"I need(ed) two thumbs on one list and three on the other to acquire a copper geeklister badge. It would mean a lot to me if you could help me out."

"And, maybe, you would tell me if you think that these lists are actually funny, or if I am deluding myself. All I want is to be loved!"

Re: PLEASE HELP! Your thumb needed...
Is this where we ask for help with our unloved geeklists?

I was trying to do a poll for Spiel des Jahres, but it flew off the front page...

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/21950

..and I was trying to amass a list of "import only" games...

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/21915

Save my lists from obscurity too!

THANKS, GARY!!! And I thumbed every one of your geeklists.

GARY only needs a couple of thumbs to get the badge... will someone do him a favor? Most were pre-thumb lists...

Both lists thumbed, and I added my comments for Jahres voting, and an item to your second list...

I thought the copper/silver/ gold were based on number of an item, not thumbs.

Thanks! I really thought it would be cool to get some sort of a poll before the award came out.

In some cases it is number of items with a minimum thumb count. For example, only images with at least 3 thumbs count towards getting an image uploader badge.

That's kind of stinky. I mean, it ignores history. I have dozens of reviews with no thumbs because there were no thumbs at the time, and a ton with like 1 because they were stumbled upon after thumbs, and if posted today, they would have 30 thumbs. I understand you're saying for images, but its the same concept.

Agreed... I will thumb all of your geeklists (which also requires 5 thumbs for 5 Geeklists). Thanks for your thoughts... OH, there was one which I had previously thumbed!

No clue. But, I did thumb nearly all of your uploaded photos, so you are very close to the copper image thumb... if you haven't earned it already.

Okay, so I have decided to try and enable all of the people on my friends list to complete their system awarded microbadge requirements.

And, some other random people who I respect on the site.

I have another suggestion. I am now going to approve & RECOMMEND any good image that is submitted when I mod. If three of us do so, that image counts for that uploader toward the image-uploader microbadges.




Otherwise, so many great images get buried and are not seen again.

And, when I find an image which helps me to see bits, or see what I need to see for a game, I will thumb it. It takes little time. It sort-of pays the deed forward.

Well, if I could be so bold to ask:

My favorite thing to do here is to create player aids and tools. But really, the files section does not get much attention. People download and use, but do not thumb or GG on them much on the page for the particular file. (I am guilty of this as well!)

Files are due for a modernization soon. Categorization, sample shots, etc. One of the problems is that if a new version is uploaded that thumbs and GG do not move to the new file. It is lost when the old one is deleted.

So I humbly submit my player aids to BGG. This is where I keep track of them personally. One of my future projects is to get screen shots of each one for my geeklist and upload them into my personal area, if I can get around to it.

Geeklists of all of my contributions:

Paul, since you specifically mentioned thumbs, I should point out that there is no thumbsup quota on reviews, only GeekLists and Images. Which hampers me somewhat since the majority of my GeekLists are pre-thumb days.
