Add a way to embed a link in a post or profile to a boardgame family id#.

For instance right now you can type [gameid=___] with the number and you get a link to the game. How about if you typed [familyid=___] or something like that and it game you a link to the family page?

[familyid=124]
[family=124]
[gamefamilyid=124]
[gamefamily=124]
[boardgamefamilyid=124]
[boardgamefamily=124]

or whatever

when it works one of the above, maybe, if I guessed the right format, will link to the GMT MPBS page on BGG...

here is a list of the families currently entered on BGG:

We now have it both in wiki and in thread! wiki style is [boardgamefamily=124] or [rpgfamily=124] (semantically different way to access the same thing ). For threads, use the new dropdown for Musket & Pike Battle Series or using your own text. Yay!

This is now available with the "Insert Geek Link" functionality in threads / replies (by picking Board Game Family or RPG Family as appropriate).
