While in the process of writing my 100th GeekList, I started thinking back on my four years on BGG. As much enjoyment as this website has given me, I can not help but think of all the shortcomings that we all deal with on a daily basis. Aldie and Derk, though apparently nice guys, are obviously incompetent. The bottom line is that I would be a much better leader for BGG and if I was allowed to make sweeping changes, I would pave the way for BGG to rival Facebook, Twitter, and You Tube as one of the most popular websites on the planet.

In the following list, you will find an outline of drastic changes that I would make immediately. Feel free to add any other changes that you think I should implement as the new leader of BGG.

would be our Director or Wargaming. He would be in charge of keeping all the weirdos wargamers from creeping over into the forums where the normal gamers are. He could hold classes on chit counting and World in Flames tutorials. I hate to give the wargamers so much respect, but Wif has always been a favorite of mine, so I feel like I need to give him something to do.

From the preceding list, it should be evident that I have what it takes to lead BGG into its promising future. If you did not get appointed to a position at the new BGG, just keep your head up and maybe one day you can move into a position of power. There's always a chance that someone will tick me off or leave voluntarily and since I'm obviously not going to take on any extra responsibilities, I will have to hire someone.

Alas, this is all wishful thinking for the time being, but one never knows what the future may hold. cool

All joking aside, I have a great deal of respect for every individual on this list and many others who aren't. BGG is a wonderful community that has given me so much, while I feel that I have given so little in return. So here's to my first 100 GeekLists and to the hope that I am able to write 100 more and share them with the best group of people on the internet.

In the midst of celebrating my 100th list with many of my friends here on BGG, I could not help but noticing the sad news about the passing of one of our fellow geeks. Once again it reminds me of how much this site means to me and how special the bond is among many of the members.

Please remember Jeff's family and friends during their time of sorrow. If you would like to share a story about Jeff, feel free to do that on this on this list. I would be honored to have this list turn into something so worthwhile.

Please don't forget to visit the following GeekList and express your condolences.


Jeff
