Simon "that sci-fi guy"
On each game page, under 'user info' is a section called 'Status'. (These are summarised on each users profile page under: games tab->collection.)
* Previously Owned
* For Trade
* Want in Trade
* Want to Buy
* Want to Play
I have a suggestion for two new options:
* On Loan (for games you have lent out)
* To Create/make (for PnP games only)
The first one seems a no-brainer to me. The status section is a great tool for keeping track of a game collection. Games on loan are a part of this.
The second item is because adding a PnP game to a wishlist or want-in-trade list doesn't really work in my opinion. I'd like to be able to track these games separtately. However I dont' think it's a good idea to include this option on all manufactured games as it suggests BGG is encouraging gamers to make rather than buy commercially available games.
If you are not having fun, then you are missing the point.
I agree that "On Loan" is a great idea.
I would like to see
"Owned By Game Group"
When looking at a list of games, I want to see whether I Own the game but also whether someone in my game group already owns it.
When looking at a list of games, I want a quick tick indicating that I have investigated a game and I have decided that I am not interested in this game at all.
