Re: Welcome to our new users!
Maybe this is a good time to start a survey about the userfriendlyness (is that spelled rigth?!) of BGG.
For us 'long time' members everything is clear as chrystal, but it wouldn't hurt to ask new members what is clear and what is unclear to them and how this can be solved.

Build it, Aldie, and they will come.

Welcome all the new users - Does this influx mean there are more gamers in the world, in turn meaning there's more chance of me finding somebody to play Twilight Struggle with?

Re: Welcome to our new users!
Ah, but how many frequently visit the site? I'd be interested to know the average addiction level of newly registered people. Do they check the site once every other day, or something more like three times a day? And what about this compared to older geek addicts, did they used to visit more when they were new or less compared to the newer crowd?

Whew! That's a lot of potential good data!

Speaking of that... how is Agricola still #1? It has less reviews (13614 vs 19024) than Puerto Rico, and it has a less average user rating (8.28 vs 8.30). I'm not exactly sure how BGG does their ranking system, but even with all the "fake" votes they use to average scores out, shouldn't PUerto Rico be #1 now? Not that it should ever get #1 again.... Agricola for life!

Oh and I'm on much more than that at the moment, but that's just because I'm currently out of work so a bit more free time on my hands

Hello all,

As a new user, I have been visiting the site roughly twice a day. There's quite a lot of information archived here to read through, and more than a few memories re-kindled by some out-of-print titles.

I have not yet had an opportunity to play either Agricola or Puerto Rico, and I shill for neither .

Woohoo...Aldie is in a generous mood today. So line up newcomers and say hello!
Welcome everybody. Hope you enjoy the site & happy gaming.

@ Aldie: 20k sound like a very large number of new users - what is a "normal" number of registrations over a two-months-period?
