What is the avowed aim of BGG , apart from total world domination through game brain washing by the deadly duo A & D, what is the plan within the plan ? and should the BGG have a jingling mission statement ? other than

"Serving the Board Game Community Since January 2000"

something more razzy , you know , Phhzziett!!

A Tree is felled to make your splendid game
The designers seeking only wealth and fame
But at the geek a wonderous site we provide
but remember from your wife the credit card bills to hide

I feel ill reading that ...surely someone can come up with a catchy jingle for geek speak radio or some snappy lyric.

We shall endeavour to conceptualize new methods to cultivate and proliferate the boardgame commune to escalate the awareness off our geeky manner.

Hows that for a mission statement?

The short answer is...
...No!

One of the wonderful things about the internet is that it is not (yet) a replication of US television where every single thing is "bought to you by" some company or another, and where every such company feels the need to have a "catch cry".

This is an international web site for an international audience. Adding a mimic of the corporate drone that is the US media would be a worthless exercise - no, actually it would be worse than that, it would devalue an excellent site.

Please please please don't do it!
