While I can't speak for anyone else but myself... I think BoardGameGeek is probably the best website of it's type in this day and age.

That being said... if another site came up that was similar in scope and content... what would it take to get you to leave the geek and go to this one?

My wife asked me this question and I'm not really sure... I think my familiarity with this site means that it would take a lot to get me to jump ship and leave for another.

Your opinions are sought and verily welcomed in this buzzing pot of mine.

For starters, it would have to have at least 50% volume in key areas: general gaming forum; game forums; reviews; game comments.

Given that, any one of the following would make me consider switching: timestamp on game comments; moderation of list content; removal of thumbs/geekgold; an interface that was more friendly to newbies (e.g., cut out at least half of the features).

They'll take my BGG when they pry it from my COLD, DEAD HANDS.

Or if they offer bacon.

Why leave? Two sources of information are better than one, right?

I've been on a lot of different websites, none of them ever had the family feel of the Geek.

And no one else would they put up with my nonsense.

It's fun, it's healthy, it's good exercise. The kids will just love it. And we put a little sand inside to make the experience more pleasant.

Free games instead of geekgold, bacon+steak+eggs for reviews, and more treats.

Really I don't see how any other site could ever grow to rival BGG at this point. The massive amount of user added content, the momentum the site already has and the community mean no other site could build up the content or get people to use it.
