I has wondering if BGG could create a new category (s) under the board game micro badge.

There are men and women who do very good work on games that don't get recognized and I believe they should!

Some of the categories I was thinking of are:

Developers - I think these folks really tie the designers ideas together to make things work.

Artists and/or Illustrators - With the onset of computer driven graphic art software and their talent, maps and the other components are just beautiful now.

Play tester(s) and play test groups - some of the unsung heroes of the gaming world. How many times have you heard some say "Was this POS play tested???"

I don't know how to go about make the badges. As my high school art teacher told me years ago, I can't even draw attention!

Some of the people I wold like to see are Todd Davis, Don Johnson, Dean Essig, Mark Simonitch, Tony Curtis, Nicolás Eskubi,Mark Mahaffey, Steve Paschal, to name a very few.

Let me know what you think. I think these folks should get the recognition they deserve.

Great idea, my friend.

However, I just looked and there already is a Nicolas Eskubi badge. Well deserved, I might add...(just bought it!)

Can't believe there's no Dean Essig badge! A gross omission! Somebody rectify this!shake

Also one for Mark Mahaffey. I own both his and Nicolas Eskubi's. Two very talented artists.
