BoardGameGeek is a website dedicated to physical board games, with an extensive database of more than 120,000 board games (as of October 2020) as well as an active community of users who discuss, argue, buy, sell, trade and play board games. Each game has its own game entry with information about a game, user ratings, forums for discussion, and a great deal more.
The forums are a good place to explore to involve yourself in the community. If you are completely new to the site, check out the Getting Started page and the Welcome to BoardGameGeek page. To start exploring the wiki, have a look at the Wiki Index, and if you want to learn more about what the wiki is and how to add content to it, go to About the BoardGameGeek Wiki.

Text Editors at BGG
BGG has two basic text editors. You can recognize them from sight using the red boxed regions in the images below for reference.
Forum Editor - Used for editing posts and other parts of the system. The Forum Editor provides support for creating markup in the editor which is then rendered in the actual post.
Wiki Editor - Used to editing wiki pages and other places. For example the game Description and Community Wiki sections are actually wiki pages.
The markup formats for the Forum Editor and the Wiki Editor are similar, but different.See:
