My theory is that the existing functions for geekmail and forums are changing to the "new look and feel".

It's an exciting announcement, but not THAT exciting.

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Is it a coincidence that the number of badge owners is 0?

Dear readers,

So Octavian made
[microbadge=46399] = Microbadge: Important announcement about BGG communication!

I have two major complaints about this MB.

Firstly, he did not go through the standard approval channels:
Microbadge Request & Design Feedback GeekList 6.1th Edition
&
Microbadge Submissions, Design, and Feedback thread


and secondly, the owner count for this microbadge is always 0*

Just who do you think you are, Octavian?

Disgruntled Matt

* ok, seriously this is well played. I laughed when I saw it. Please tell me it was intentional, and not just a result of pushing it into existence too quickly. shake

I'm decently certain those numbers only update once each day. So just a happy coincidence for early adopters

So where's the thread where everyone discusses what they think the eventual announcement will be?

I just sent the replacement message. I really hope it contains something this time!

Also, if the microbadge wasn't enough, I also designed this cool new avatar, which I've included below this message.

I would recommend sending out a follow-up email stating the earlier one was in error. I immediately thought something might be wrong with my browser, so I loaded up my GeekMail in a different browser that I rarely use. When that didn't reveal anything new, I went looking in the forums until I found this thread. It may save a number of other people a similar hassle.

Re: Geekmail titled "Important announcement about BGG communication!" from the BoardGameGeek account:

Sorry for the small hiccup. Obviously that wasn't what was supposed to happen, but it is what it is.

Consider it a teaser, building suspense for the actual announcement.

Sorry for any confusion.

Game On!

Whew! I was afraid that I was in trouble (and had every reason to believe I deserved to be, so there's a good chance I still am).

This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. The broadcasters of your website in voluntary cooperation with the Federal, State and local authorities have developed this system to keep you informed in the event of an emergency. If this had been an actual emergency, the Attention Geekmail you just heard would have been followed by official information, news or instructions. This concludes this test of the Emergency Broadcast System.

I just realized that I replaced my 99% Invisible microbadge (usually my middle one) with one that is 100% invisible.
