I just joined the site a few months ago to try and get some feedback on my game design, but I believe I'm still a "New User". How do I change my avatar? What are geek badges? What is geek gold, and how do I get it? I assume Geekgold is something I have to use to customize, but I'm so lost.

Hi!

You can use Geek Gold (GG) to purchase an Avatar and Geek Badges.

Once you've purchased an Avatar, you can change it at any time by clicking on "Edit Avatar" (EDIT: On your "My Geek --> Profile" page) and uploading a new image. You can edit Geek Badges basically the same way.

Many of your questions are answered here (you can find these again in the pull-down menu underneath "Advanced Search" at the top of the BGG pages):

Wow. I'm an idiot. I had no idea there was a forum just for this. Thanks!

You're not an idiot (I went through this, too), and you're very welcome.
