A big thank you 😊

BGA

Hey all,

I just came across BGA but a little while ago and I just wanted to say that I have found it to be really welcoming and friendly. I have played board games for a long time but only recently started to interact with the wider 'board game community', so thank you everyone (especially those that set this all up) for creating an atmosphere where I (and hopefully others) felt very free to ask questions, discuss games, shared experiences etc. It has been an incredibly positive experience :)

You are all great and appreciated!

Thanks Bob! It’s been awesome having you here too! This is without a doubt the best board game community that I’ve ever been part of too. The discussion is excellent, the company is pleasant, and the forum is easy to use!

Exactly, people are very willing to engage with ideas and topics and I've not seen a single negative (except maybe about a board game) or insulting comment so far!

It's been great having you around! And yes, BGA is a veery positive place to come for board game discussions. Some of the Facebook groups are good at staying calm, but I do love the atmosphere here. And the forum makes it much easier to keep track of things than a Facebook group ever could.

It is handy having it all centralised, easy to get lost on a Facebook page and difficult to refind things

This community is great.  I think the tone was set early by @trentellingsen and @philryuh and a lot of us early joiners have tried to keep it that way. 

I hope it can be kept like this going forward as the site gets bigger and more people join.  It's definitely possible.  Here's to the future of BGA!

Thanks Bob! :D

It's been great seeing all of the new faces and having more diverse conversation topics. I'm sure everyone appreciates being able to jump into a discussion and not having to worry about thinking of a conversation starter!

And in regards to friendliness, it sure helps that we're starting off with just all in general great people with accommodating personality haha. It is a personal goal/hope of mine though, that everything about BGA will help facilitate a welcoming environment even as the community grows expontentially.

Thanks for the encouragement! It's been a long journey building the website with @philryuh. It still feels like we're just approaching the starting line in some ways though. We've got a long way to go still!

I can imagine it being no easy task, I wouldn't know where to start! But at least from the outside it looks great, so keep it up 😀
