What Are They?
Put simply, GeekLists are user created lists of items from the database. They are used for VGG related activities and contests, game discussion, and may be humorous and do not need to relate to games at all. They can cover any number of items or subject matters and may be open to public additions or they can be a users personal list. GeekLists are the heart and lifeblood of VGG. Most of the activity will be found there and not in the forums.
How Do They Work?
Every GeekList will have a header with the user name of it's creator and the option to subscribe, tip, and thumb. The description box will contain information on the GeekLists subject and what it is about.
Below the header is the Items list. Each item will contain a game, series, or character from the database, the user who added it, and a description. Users can choose to subscribe too and comment on individual item entries.
