You know, I've spent a lot of time here on the Geek, but it seems like I'm always learning something new. So the idea of this geeklist is to share those little tricks that it took you awhile to figure out, so that others can learn from your experience.

This is a little trick that I just found when Aldie posted the winners for a contest in this format.

Take out the spaces from this: [username = Aldie]

Special Pics/Emoticons
There is a huge range of other pictures that you can add to any post besides the emoticons you see available for selection. All you need to do is add a colon : before and after the following phrases and you get the connected picture...

d6-1 = 1 d6-2 = 2

d6-3 = 3 d6-4 = 4

d6-5 = 5 d6-6 = 6

d10-1 = d10-1 d10-2 = d10-2

d10-3 = d10-3 d10-4 = d10-4

d10-5 = d10-5 d10-6 = d10-6

d10-7 = d10-7 d10-8 = d10-8

d10-9 = d10-9 d10-0 = d10-0

sheep = sheep wood = wood

brick = brick wheat = wheat

ore = ore bluetrain = bluetrain

blacktrain = blacktrain greentrain = greentrain

yellowtrain = yellowtrain redtrain = redtrain

purpletrain = purpletrain coal = coal


I know there are more I'm forgetting. Anyone who wants to add them, please help.

Inline Pictures
If you ever want two pictures to line up next to each other instead of on 2 separate lines just add the word inline after the ID# of the pictures.

Example: Remove the spaces from this
[ImageID = 254419inline][ImageID = 254417inline]

and you get this



instead of this

Re-sizing images
When you post a BGG image into a message it will automatically default to the small size. In order to adjust the size you have to add either square, medium, large, or original after the ID#.

Small/Default



Square



Medium

If you submit a game and want to make sure it is in the queue or you would like to know that the game you intend to submit is not already in the queue, then you need the link for the queue. I still don't know where to find this link, but someone told me and I copied it: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/userqueue.php

You can misattribute quotes by just changing the name in quotes within the q instruction.

Not that I'd ever do that.

If you log your plays on BGG then it's definitely worth asking John to add you to his website because the wealth of charts and graphs is incredible.

This isn't part of BGG but these are links that people are constantly asking for. They're BoardGameSearch and BoardGamePrices, both of which allow you to easily comparison shop online.

(Note, BoardGameSeeker used to be a third one of these - http://www.boardgameseeker.com/ - but it doesn't seem to be operational any more)

Here's where I explain how to add polls to your geeklist ....

Problem is I don't know, and can't find it either, so I'm hoping for some Geek to create a Geeklist with Tricks of the Geek, in which I find a description of how to do it.

And then I'll let you know!

Ever once in a while...not so much as anyone would notice, BGG goes down. Usually there's a bright, friendly message letting us know that there is a place to go to while away the time while waiting for BGG to come back up. Sometimes there isn't. That's when having this handy link in your favorites can save your sanity: http://groups.google.com/group/BGG_Down.

Linking to a Game Page
If you want to link to the page of a game, you can use the following command or the Game button when you are posting.

Take out the spaces from this: [GAMEID = 31260]

And you get this: Agricola

Useful when you want to make statements like:

The game currently holding the number one spot on Board Game Geek is Agricola, which is a game about farming.

I guess, with the wealth of images and QUALITY available, my images don't match up, and are not worthy of being added to the encyclopedia of knowledge that is BGG.

Woe is my forlorn little image from a spectacular gaming session that will never see the light of day amongst Geekdom!

NOT SO! My little moments of customization or artistic genius WILL flourish (well, be available, really. There's only five so far).

If you add the image to your personal gallery, you can slide them into regular posts and Geeklists, even though they aren't "available".


Custom Pocket Civ

I dunno if its a "trick", but I find it useful! (If the OP or a Mod finds this NOT "tricky" please feel free to remove this!)

Quickbar Links
Here is one that may seem too obvious for inclusion on this list, but it was one of those features that I kept looking at and thinking I will find out how to do that when I have a minute or two. Of course on BGG a minute or two is never spent on those intentions and it must of been about 6 months later when I finally got around to using the quickbar.

By clicking on one of the "+" signs on the quickbar list, which is found in the upper right hand corner of most BGG pages, it will save the page you are currently on. Then by clicking on the word "Quickbar" it will allow you to edit so you can give the link a name. Click the "save" button and your ready to go.

There are 10 pages of quickbars giving 100 shortcuts. This also means that links may be categorised. Someone may correct me if I am wrong but as you can put any link into the quickbar you could use non BGG links too?
