Makes you wonder if will BBG upgrade their website to CSW standards.:)

Comment by Bill Wood on April 6, 2013 at 6:29am

The best value I get out of BGG is without a doubt is finding kindred folks and the trade service. Hate to lose that.

Another question - does anyone know if you can easily broadcast a message to all Geek Buddies at once?

I had always thought of the BGG donation/annual beg-a-thon to be guilt driven and not necessary to their success - content given away by our contributions is the meat of the value - donations are dumping money into a Salvation Army kettle for a rich guy.

Go to admit that in the past few months I have considered resetting my BGG presence.

Basically, create another account, gift it with my GG, deck out the new guy in a more 'professional' persona, import my game list, delete Wilhammer completely.

Is their a way to export my game list? Yes.

But is their a way to import it? I don't know.

Interesting. I've donated to them the last 5 years but lowered the amount this year after debating with myself about donating at all. I increased the amount I gave to CSW though.

Tried democratically running sites a couple of times. 

The first, the needs of democracy sickened everyone enough that they voted it out.

The second was a reaction. It was less democracy than pure anarchy. Settled into 

something boring.

Just saw another thread locked by Octavian with the usual missive of, Remember - if you see something you want to react negatively to, flag it and forget it. 

It got me wondering; if everybody red-x`d his post would he unlock it?  Would he pay a blind bit of notice?

Would be nice if there was a mechanism whereby if the majority of people on the thread were not offended they could red-x the moderation as un-necessary.  It would be almost - democratic.

Yes. I donated one time in December 2011 and then BGG went into one if its mood swings in January over the forums, and I immediately regretted donating. I have been embarrassed carrying around that supporter badge. I always figured my session reports were enough donation. After many efforts of trying to D-elim the patron badge, I finally emailed Octavian and asked him how to. I wonder if he  saw my thread about that on BGG. The consensus was that there is no way to remove it. 

Comment by Bill on April 4, 2013 at 8:38pm

was that the only patron badge you had ?

Comment by ER Bickford on April 4, 2013 at 8:30pm

Great News. Octavian got rid of my 2011 Patron Badge for me. All I had to to do was Geekmail him asking if there was anyway to remove it. He said: No problem, I removed it.
