What if it cost 5 GG to rate something but you got 7 GG 30 days later?

This way people would have a slight incentive to rate games but the number of games they could rate at one time would be a function of their overall reputation here.

That's an interesting idea
I would go with 1GG and 1.01 five days later, or 0.50 to 0.51
for lower entry barrier + more regular access + lower mining value
and you will be building your profile with your ratings, like with MB
(in any case, comments on games would still be free)
besides the user would have to get GG somehow
lets not forget our Swedish ghost account friend here has no thumbs given or received, or any other contribution to the site, but seeding this discord

This is a horrible, user-hostile idea hatched to address a fringe issue people should just let go.

Actually, what could be done with gold? We have a gold system at work that we can redeem for various things, including Amazon gift cards (which means the gold is as good as cash).

But it might be nice to brainstorm ideas for BGG. And I'm sure it's been discussed already, and someone will link us to the thread(s) shortly.

You can think about a system of WEIGHTED ratings, where the weight can be altered retroactively (e.g. associated with a rating giver's account). It does not seem impossible to come up with a function that devalues your rating depending on how you rate (accounting for the frequency and the distribution).

We can even CORRECT for user biases -- not all users interpret numerical ratings into the same subjective ratings -- for some 10 is just "good" for others 10 is practically inachievable "i reserve 10 for a game from outer space" -- this can be fixed with some mathematics and without torturing users.

We can normalize each user's rating to this user's median and/or expected value (let's debate which one is better)

There have indeed been many past threads about new ideas for things to buy with GG. But I don't easily have links to them.

However FWIW I'll now link to the BGG wiki page GeekGold which includes a list of all things you can CURRENTLY do with GG, some of which seem less well known to many people.

Well my take on it is, I have to thank this gaming expert for saving me a lot of money in the future and helping me with my boardgame addiction.

Since I have no reason to believe that he has not personally played all 7200+ games that he has rated, and consequently has provided a 1 rating on all these games with no written reason as to why he rated them as 1, I have to assume that all 7200+ games were so terrible they didn't deserve a comment, and thus are not for me to buy.

I wish I had seen his rating for the nearly 800 that I already own before I bought them. I could have added a new extension to my house several years ago. Heck, I might not have ever gotten into boardgaming to begin with based on his sage advice! Oh where were you then?!?!


LOL!!! laugh

How do i get a bunch of geekBuddies that are totally objective? A 1000+ would suit my needs. Let's get a GeekList going where every1 can nominated themselves, and lets pray to god smjj doesn't turn up to ruin our sh*t.

This doesn't exist, since opinions are subjective. What I do is to pay attention to what people say and see if there is any overlap between my preferences and their own.

Also, since abstract strategy games are a quite a specific niche with few followers (based on the BGG community), I'd start by adding people that post or reply to posts in this forum.

I want the views of actual gamers with hearts and minds, not soulless robots. Human beings are not totally objective, and the ones who try to project themselves as such are doing nobody any favors.

I've got an incredibly good and useful GeekBuddy list, populated by gamers who are intelligent and passionate about their likes and dislikes. I know where their tastes coincide with my own, and where they diverge. I wouldn't trade them for "objective" users, even if I thought it were possible.

Could not agree more! This is exactly my thinking.
