Hiya,

I'm trying to add the correct details to the 'Art by:' field for the games I publish. This works fine when the artist already exists in the BGG database, but when he doesn't, I can't get it to work - how should it be done?

Cheers,

Jack

You can create a new 'Person' here:

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/item/create/person

and simultaneously link in the games they did art for.

How is a new "Person" different from the existing types of entry for designer/developer etc ?

For example: Rodger MacGowan already has an entry in the db, but there are no fields that allow the "Art by" links to be added to his page... yet if I create a new person I see the ability to enter Art by info

http://www.boardgamegeek.com/person/71
compared to
http://www.boardgamegeek.com/item/create/person

Do I create a duplicate person or amended the existing data ?

thanks

Tim

There is no difference - a person can be an artist or designer (for now).


The Person correction page should have a way to link in games, but I don't have that yet.

In the meantime you can add the artist to the actual game pages with a game correction.

If it's a lot of entries, you can wait till I add the art links on a person modificatnion.
