VGG Site History

Site/Feature Related

BoardGameGeek is founded.
- GeekCoins were issued. They were never re-issued and are now obsolete.

- A "game recommendation" (you liked this game so you may like this game...) algorithm was implemented and then removed. It did not function well.

- Added "Families"; identical to categories but more nebulous.

- RPGGeek is founded.

VideoGameGeek is founded. Starts off with admins:

The "VGG Council" is formed; a group where users and admins discuss features and site related problems. It lasted until around 2012 when it was replaced by the "VGG Cabinet" - an admin only group that still exists. The Council was disbanded because it proved ineffectual and achieved little. Site related topics are best spoken out in the general forums with all the users instead by a 'select club' of users behind closed doors.
