My Geek is the BGG page that's all about you. What games you've played, your online buddies, the games you own or want to own or want to trade for something else.
These parts of the My Geek layout appear on most of the My Geek pages.
- BoardGameGeek Preferences: This section allows to set some of your BGG preferences including AdBlocking, notifications, and inclusion in the gamer database
- User Profile for UserName: This section is mostly a spot for you to tell us a little about yourself. It also lets you set your Avatar, buy Geek, ÜberGeek and Micro badges and edit which microbadges are currently displayed.
- Microbadges for UserName: This section shows all the microbadges you own and lets you buy more.
- User Details for UserName: This section has more personal info; you current e-mail, address, phone number, etc. This is mostly optional. If you fill in your address BGG will use the address here as your shipping address if you purchase games through the BGG Marketplace.
LRC, Apples to Apples, Dread Pirate, Pharaoh, Citadels, Carcassonne, Catan, Arkham Horror, whatever.
Games which you own, or have rated or commented or logged or subscribed etc, appear in your "collection".
The game's primary title. Some games have more than one title. If your copy has a different title, too bad. You might mention your copy's title in your comment about the game to help you search and find it in your collection if you have trouble remembering the primary title.

Most of the properties like Owned, For Trade and Wanted are editable from the page of the games themselves. For instance, if you want to add Settlers of Catan to your collection go to the games database page for Settlers of Catan, then go to the Collection section (at the very bottom unless you moved it), click the "Owned" check box and then the Submit button.
