I'm a very sad boardgamer.
About a week ago I found out that somebody was offering 10 GG for an English translation of Zoosim ( I desperately seeking Avatar). I made the translation, uploaded it and within two days I received 1 (one) Geekgold.

I realized that the gold was offered under the transcription 'PlayerAid'. So I uploaded my translation under 'Playeraid' and received 0 (Zero)cry GG in return.

Anyone who has an idea what I could have done wrong?

thanks

Gold
When you say translation, am assuming you mean game rules. 1 geek gold is normal. It's the base for a translation.

If you say that the 10 geekgold was for a player aid, than of course the translation is worth 0. A translation is not a player aid.

Yes but when I looked what the details for playeraid were, it said: Rules in English.
That sounds like a translation to me.

Dude who made the offer just made a mistake. From what I see, the two translation on the gamepage of Zoosims is the the same exactly file. The file was uploaded by the other geek first, so got the 10 +1 geekgold. Since you uploaded the same file, I would consider yourself getting lucky for getting that 1 geekgold in the first place.

It was me and myself who uploaded the file TWICE. Because I thought that I made a mistake by uploading it as a translation instead of a playeraid.
The first time I got 1 GG.
The second time I (obviously) got 0 GG.

The thing I'm asking is: 'When or how does one get the gold offered on the Find Geekgold page?'

Greetz.

I my experience, it always takes several days untill you get the gold for the upload! Also this "two days left" status might indicate that you get it in two days or so???

It seems the "X days left" countdown begins when a user submits the item . . . the good news is that submissions do take some time to be reviewed and acknowledged. So you still have hope.
