When viewing your collection, I think the status of a game you own should be Own and not Owned.

Owned implies past tense and it's 'Own' everywhere else you see it - in the popup when you change it, when you click 'Add to Collection' on a game page, etc. Owned is also not long enough that it would need to be abbreviated like 'Prev. Owned' is.

This is so small and it would be ok if it never changed but I just thought I'd comment.

Thanks for everything, I love BGG!

Yeah, when I look at my game I say "that game is own by me"

And another one! Oh yeah, that one is own by me too.

And those other ones on my shelf over there are own by me.

As it's being used to describe the game (not you), owned is an adjective and is the correct form.

Ahh, I get it. When I read it, I think “I own it”, not “I owned it”. Sort of like, “I previously owned it”.

I’m reading it wrong

Actually, since the database is to document games, the idea is to start with the game (ie. The game is owned (by you)).

It will never make sense to me but that's ok.

When you click to set a status, I read it like....

I Own this game.
I Previously Owned this game.
This game is For Trade by me.
I Want (this game) in Trade
I Want To Play this game.
I Want To Buy this game.
I have Preordered this game.
I 'Must have' this game.

And that carries over when I see the status's listed.

I Own this game. Not, This game is Owned by me.
I prev. owned this game. Not, This game was prev. owned by me.
etc.

I feel like this horse is dead already so I'll let it be.
