BGA Feature #48 Community Data Section for Game Pages

Owner

The title for this feature makes it seem like the feature is bigger than it is so I hope it's not too disappointing. I do think it could become an awesome section that grows with some more suggestions of data to put there though, so if you have some let me know!

Anyways, game pages now feature a small area where it shows the number of plays, number of lists a game is on, and who has recently played the game!

Comment with suggestions on other metrics to put here you can think of. One I thought that could be cool would be "best score".

This is a fun addition

This is fun! I like the last person to play it feature.

Mentioned this to you already but I'd like to see a "rank" next to some of the data so that it gives me a better idea of their relative significance. For example, Azul is currently on 903 lists. I'd like to see something like "Lists it's On: 903 (#25)" so that it helps me know just how widely owned it is.

Thanks Trent! It's a small addition for sure, but I really like it and I agree there's a lot of potential.

Of course as far as I know, lists doesn't just include the "owned" list, but the ranks should be pretty close to true either way, if you're wanting to know you're many people own it.

This is only tangentially related, but is it possible to get the # game links shown somewhere on the game page? There's a section for reddit comments that's basically the same thing for reddit, so if that's down there I feel like it makes sense to do the same thing for BGA comments.

For the purposes of this feature, you could include a count of reddit/BGA comments referencing the game.

That makes a lot of sense. It's also a lot more work than it should be. But not as much work as reddit was. Great idea!

Well if it's a ton of work, then maybe it's not worth it. To be honest, I very seldom look at the reddit section anyway, so maybe you should take a poll of users here before implementing it.

I think it'd certainly worth putting in the infrastructure to gather that data. Maybe having it as that specific feature wouldn't be all that useful but it'd certainly be a good set of data to know when games are mentioned.

Makes sense. Cool!

I just went ahead and added a best score part as well.
