Not exactely new here, but have wondered the last few times I looked in that all the auctions on the frontpage from ebay is warhammer 40k, since not being the big warhammer player, I was wondering if that is normal? or are there some way to filter these out?

It's probably a function of volume. There are just a lot of 40K auctions generally speaking, so, they tend to flood the search spiders.

You could set it to Recent rather than hot, to see what's being added, and get more variety.

And users add the auctions to BGG themselves ...

If you go to Browse, there are a lot of filter options.

And how does one add an auction to the Geek?

Go the page for any game. Look for the eBay icon. Click the word "Add" to the right of the logo. The name is already put in for you, but you may need to change it for some games with alternate names (e.g. Bausack vs. Bandu) or long subtitles that don't always appear in the name of the game (e.g. Descent vs. Descent: Journeys in the Dark). Just click "Go." Finally, check the boxes next to auctions to add them to the list of auctions. (PLEASE make sure that they are actually auctions for the right product!) And you're done. You'll even earn some geekgold for helping out.
