When looking at my profile, I noticed that there were 26 plays for board game expansions displayed. However, I do not record plays of expansion games. So, I clicked through and it is showing my 26 plays of Settlers of Catan as expansion plays. Is this right? Doesn't seem right to me...

Weird. No idea why it is like that, but it's the same for me:

Yet if you look at the "Expands" line in the SoC entry, it's empty. You can't play it with anything. It's useless! Send me your copies etc.

It's a bug that causes the boardgameexpansion subtype to attach whenever someone links an item as an expansion, even in game item submission. A user mis-linked a Catan expansion the wrong way around, and the subtype attached even though the expansion had not yet been approved. I've corrected the entry, and I will advise the programming team.

We are aware of the bug, but there is nothing we can do about it for now without a wholesale overhaul of the way item submissions are handled.
