New Page: The Bounty List!

Owner

I've created a new page for users that want to help with contributing to our database of games! You can find our most important pages that have missing information there! It's a link under our "Games" dropdown if you'd like to find it in the future but here's a link to check out now!

Can I make a suggestion for the page?  I think the trending aspect should be considered. 

There are a LOT of entries on that page which are small expansions or lesser known/older games.  I think it would give the site, and the people working on it, more bang for the buck if they are updating games that are missing data that are being talked about right now.  

Once those get tackled then we can start going down the list towards the less talked about items.

Just a thought.

These are actually in order of the most viewed pages that need information right now. It may seem a bit eclectic but people are searching for those apparently.

Ah cool!  We probably have info for the other stuff then. That's great!

I know you brought this up on the other thread, but what is the legality of me going to Amazon or BGG and copying the image and putting it on here?

I am no expert. I’m also not in the US.  Fair use is complex and you’d need a lawyer who is an expert in this area to be sure about it. 

You could take a picture of your board game and post it up on your social media no problem .  You could probably do the same with the publishers stock box photo.  You could even take that photo that caused the controversy and laugh at it with your friends on Facebook.  It would fall under fair use I highly suspect.  You aren’t making money, stopping them from making money off it etc etc.  

It gets greyer once it is posting on a site like this or BGG without the authors permission.  I don’t know how grey.  

The safest bet is to of course take your own photo, or get permission for an existing photo.  If publisher have  material available for customers to use that is likely free to use. 

I suspect it is entirely safe to use material found on a publishers web site for something like BGA or BGG.   If it wasn’t then eBay would have died a long time ago and sites like BGG and BGa along with it.

 you guys talked to a lawyer.  Any insight to give us?  Am I way off the mark?

How is it calculated? Top of the list I'm seeing is #Raiders of Scythia, which looks to have a pretty fleshed out page.

It's just looking at 2 criteria. It either needs an image or a description.

Ah got it, it was missing a description

Along with a bunch of other "badges" I need to come up with, now I need to come up with a "top bounty hunter" badge 😆.. or maybe it should be an exclusive set of "reactions" you can use?

Premium User4 months ago

And the bounty hunter badge is Boba Fett. Too bad that's certainly trademarked lol.
