Hi everyone, I've been on BGG for a few months now and still Avatarless.... what other ways can I get an Avatar faster? I have been trying to write session reports and reviews but to get to 30 GG seems like a long time more to go. Many thanks in advance!

Stop Buying Microbadges.

You would've had enough for your avatar if you prioritised it.

Good Job with your contributions. thumbsup

The more good reviews and session reports the better. Every one adds a different perspective on a game. Look at the most-thumbed ones to get a sense of what's expected, but then go your own way.

Post a thread in Chit Chat and beg pitifully. And tell them your soul is already spoken for when you get there.

Upload decent images? They can pick up a few per image and you can churn them out if you've got a few games.

Just don't take pictures that are identical to the thousands already out there.

Hi Everyone, thanks for your tips. Looks like no fast way around it....

Will stop buying microbadges... haha... and save money.

I really want an Avatar. And will post more reviews, session reports and pictures!

My great pleasure to be with your company.

You could also give away a game at Board Games for Geekgold September 2010 - Meeple Edition

As you have At the Gates of Loyang on your for trade list, why not take this. It will for sure earn you enough for an Avatar and some more Microbadges.

I found posting images the easiest way. Usually get 1GG per image. Find a game that doesn't have many images.

(Also, a tip I heard, if someone gives you GG, nice to drop them a geekmail and say thanks.) All the best!

Hi Everyone,

Look! I have an Avatar!

Thanks for the tips on getting the Avatar and I have uploaded many pictures that I have taken.

Also, thanks to you (you know who you are ) for transferring the balance of the required GG. Appreciate it a lot.

I love the spirit here in BGG. You guys are great!
