For those who are new, this is where you can share your feedback on all things related to Board Game Atlas. You can also find more information in this article where I walk through the various features on BGA.
First of all, thank you for all of your feedback on game ratings on the previous post. As you could see, we all have very different opinions/preferences when it comes to this lol. Hope we'll be able to come up with a solution that works for most of you.
Second, we'll be conducting polls on a regular basis starting next week. These polls will be promoted on our home page and on Board Game Prices. The main purpose behind these polls are:
- To have fun discussing various topics and have an easy jumping point for users on Board Game Prices
- Generate poll results that will make for interesting content
- Vote on favorite games/designers/publishers/artists/etc and give out rewards to the appropriate people. The winning game/designer/publisher/artist/etc will have a badge displayed on the associated page on BGA. We're also considering awarding the winner a free promotion on the discover page
- Encourage winners (designers/publishers/artists) to share about the news and help others discover BGA
Those are some rough ideas I have in my head so far. And to accomplish this, Trent is in the middle of upgrading our poll feature to allow users to add options on a poll (so if a poll is about voting for Game of the Year, you'd be able to add an option that you don't see listed in the poll, similar to how Facebook works)
What are your thoughts on this? Also, please suggest some cool/fun poll ideas!
