Guide to Database Corrections

Board Games

Adding alternate game titles and publishers

Please submit a version for the new title/publisher. Once approved, the new title/publisher will float up to the game's header. You do not have to add them as a game correction and then a version.

Adding artists to a game

Please submit a version correction to add an artist to the correct version. If the person is not yet in the database, please see Company and People entries, below.

New default game title

If a game was previously released in a language other than English and now has an English release, or was released in English and then re-released with a different title, the most recent English title should be the default name on the game's page. An admin note can be submitted asking to make the title the default name; the titles themselves should not be edited.

Player count

The player count should be as given on the box or packaging. Note: Official variants may be taken into account to extend the range.

Playing time

The playing time should be as given on the box or packaging. Note: Playing time can only be one number, not a range.

Web published vs. Self-published

If a game is available as downloadable content (such as for a Print & Play), choose Web published. Enter Self-published for tangible output produced by the designer, either directly or on their behalf.

Stand-alone games that are also expansions

Stand-alone games that may also be used as an expansion should not be linked as an expansion. The game description should note that they integrate with the other game.

Base games where some versions contain small promos

Games that are linked as containing other games/expansions are compilations, and are not ranked. A base game cannot be linked as containing another item such as a promo/expansion, or it won't be ranked. Please make a note in the More Info section if a certain printing contained a promo card. If a game is released with an expansion, it may need a separate game entry. Please see When to make a new entry.

Reimplements / Reimplemented by

If a game reimplements another game, only one correction needs to be submitted (reimplements or reimplemented by). The mirror link will be added to the other game's page.

Version nicknames

Please do not submit a correction to add or remove information to make the version nickname not conform to the naming guidelines.

  • The name of the game should not be re-iterated in the version nickname.
  • Version nicknames will commonly be something like First edition, English edition, or Ravensburger German edition 2014.
  • If it is necessary to include publisher, numbering, language, and/or year in a nickname entry, order them: Publisher, Language, Numbering, Other identifying information, "edition", Year.

Release date

Please note the YYYY-MM-DD format. Please use the Override Date only if you need a custom date.

Using the pencil icon to edit existing information

When editing a field, click the gray Ok button before submitting the correction.

Company and People entries

Company and people entries are not approved until they are linked to an approved database item (game).

For a new game, submit any needed people and companies first, and then wait a few minutes for the system to refresh. Then when you create the game, you can link any pending people or company submissions to the pending game entry. After the game is approved, different admins approve the people and company submissions. The pending people/publishers won't be visible until they are approved, but they are there. You will get a geekmail as each part is approved.

The Misc menu at the top of the page has links to add items to the database.

Designers and artists may be added here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/item/create/boardgameperson

Companies may be added here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/item/create/boardgamepublisher

When editing a name, click the gray Ok button before submitting the correction.

Please do not remove a publisher and leave a game or version without a publisher, or with an incorrect nickname.

Web Links

Web Links should be submitted via the Web Link module on the game, publisher, or designer page. Each link page has a Corrections button which can be used to edit the link and the link title, and can also mark a dead link to be deleted. Please see Link Submissions.


Images

Images do not have a separate correction form. If an image is in the wrong game entry, you may submit a game correction with links to the image and the correct game entry.

Users may propose a new gallery (Game, People, Creative) by using the Propose new Gallery link to the left of the image.

Users may propose a representative image by following the steps here: representative image.

Users may edit the captions of their images by using the Edit link above the image, or delete an image that they uploaded using the Delete link.

For more information, please see Image submissions and representative image.

Admin Notes

When referencing another entry, such as a game, person, or image, please include the whole URL, and not just the item's ID.

Example: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/1600000/strand-gamers rather than "Image 1600000"
