Hi all,
Sorry if I missed a thread about this etc.

Am I correct that BGG doesn't count plays to my account if my friend logs the play AND adds me with username, as a player?
This would be handy feature

That's right, you have to log the game yourself as well.

It would be pretty cool though, don't you think?

Edit: The one problem I can see is accuracy. If I want to add game logs saying that I played 500 games of "Foreplay" with Aldie, Derk, and Kuhrusty, then their own game logs would get really screwed up. So there would have to be some sort of verification...

There's a mental image I could have gone my whole life without....

Yeah, it seems like a bad idea to me to effectively let me log plays for other people.

an option 'add this play to my games played' when you see a played game recorded by another user would be very nice though.

I think the best solution would be a toggle in your profile somewhere that said "Notify me when others log a game with me as a player" combined with the "Add this play to my games played."
