I would find it usefull to recomend files just like we can recomend images, geeklist, and threads.

I know that in Werewolf there are many version of the cards to download. It would be nice to see which ones people like better.

I know that in Heroscape there are many senerios posted, it would be nice to see which ones people have played and recomend.

And I'm sure I could think of more usefull expamples if I took the time.

Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it? (James 2:15-16)

I agree! I was thinking about this the other day when I found a link to one of my files on someone else's geeklist.

I think it was because having the ability to recommend files would cause the space-time continuum to implode and go "Moob!"

Wait, that was crossing the beams. I am sorry.

The point is that we can tip files but as users are stingy with their bag this feature is hardly used.
As recommending a file would not cost anything people would prefer using this to show their appreciation.

In an older thread (about Oct. 2005) Aldie said he was working on this but I have no idea with which priority he is doing that.
I hope that now the redesign of BGG is done he will find time to put this higher on his to do list

I always thoguht the tip next to the files was to replace the old Geek gold request feature. (forget the name). Where people would offer for a file submission. This way if you requested it you can just tip it and it is under your control rather than automatic.

I just noticed in my profile under "Other Ratings by Melsana" it has a spot for recomending Files. Which really begs the question of why we can't recomend them and yet it is shown in our profile how many we have recomended.

(I noticed it because it was the only thing in my profile that had a 0 next to it.)

Glad to know it is on your "to do" list... which I'm sure is REALLY REALLY Long.

Thanks!

I'm sure after a month of working full time at BGG, you will be wondering how on earth you did as much as you did for BGG when it was just a side job. I know I've been wondering that for some time.
