I'm not sure if this is a bug or a suggestion because frankly I don't know how the system is meant to work.

When you add a play to the Games Played module, you are not automatically added as a player. By default, no players are listed at all. It's not zero, the box is just blank.

I can add the play and no matter whether I add the players from the box on the game page or if I go into Games Played and edit to add players, the number of players listed are only those that I specifically add. So, if I list Steve, Peter and Greg as players, the games played log says three people played the game. Shouldn't I automatically be added to the number of players? I'm logging a play of the game in question, is there any circumstance in which I would not be considered a player?

Also, the previous usernames pulldown doesn't seem to work, but I'll post that over on Bugs.

Some may use a BGG account to record plays at a group and not for a specific human.

Mmm... that's a pretty lame reason. I should be a default player in any game. If I want to delete myself, then so be it.
