Aldie's Full of Love!

This is the time of year that I reflect on how thankful I am for the enthusiasm, creativity, and generosity of the gaming community. It is your support of this site that has allowed us to continue to reach new heights. None of this is possible without all of you.

Please consider adding a 2017 Patron Badge to your profile if you don't already have one. Each year, thousands of you volunteer to contribute to the fiscal well-being of the site. That fact is simultaneously incredibly gratifying and incredibly humbling for me, and it is something that I keep in mind with every decision made about the site.

People can support the site in different ways. It is not all monetary, but it is all appreciated. No member of the community should ever be made to feel like they have lesser status because they do not have a patron badge. BoardGameGeek, RPGGeek, and VideoGameGeek are all free to use, and your support is entirely voluntary.

If you feel what we do here is worthwhile, then please consider joining in with others in the community and help support the site right now.
Every bit helps. And if you are already a supporter, share why you love the 'Geek by adding a blurb

Thank you all again for your generous support, in whatever form your support takes!

----------------------

With only one month left in 2017, December marks your LAST chance to get the current 2017 Patron Badge and microbadges. Once the calendar turns over to January 1st the current 2017 Patron Badge and microbadges will never be available again.

For $15 or more you get the 2017 Patron badge. If you increase your support to $25 you will also be able to customize what ads you see on the site.

Current Supporters can get the special microbadges for the cumulative total amount supported during the 2017 calendar year by using the following link:

Update Microbadges

Here are the different microbadge levels:
mb Copper: $15
mb Silver: $25
mb Gold: $40
mb Platinum: $70
mb Herculean: $100
mb Ultimate: $200

If you want to contribute but don't want the microbadges for any reason, just don't click that link!

----------------------

As has become tradition during these support drives, when the clock strikes midnight at the end of 2017 we will give ALL members of the community that have a 2017 Patron Badge a hefty chunk of bonus GeekGold! How much bonus GeekGold? In previous years we used complicated formulas to come up with a final bonus geekgold total, but this year we're keeping it simple. At the end of the year, everyone who has supported the site during 2017 will get 1000 GeekGold!

That's a lot of GeekGold!

I'd have a lot more money if it weren't for BGG, but my life wouldn't be nearly as much fun.

Here's to another year of the best site on the net!

Thanks Aldie! I've been here just over a year and love the community . Thanks to you and the rest of the team and volunteers who help run this site - instead of a new game, here's a contribution to you.

I started typing a blurb, and accidentally hit send midway through

What I wanted to say was: because of all the great gamers from around the world I've met here!

AAAAAAAAND WE'RE OFF!

How many supporters will we reach in 2017?

On what day will be beat last year's total of 17254 new supporters?

Will there be bears? Hamsters? Hambearsters?

On which page of the thread will the first concern troll appear, demanding financial transparency as a condition of his support for the site?

For answers to these and other thrilling questions, stay tuned!

So there’s a goal but the 1000 GG isn’t tied to meeting that goal? Or we only get the 1000 GG if the goal is met?

You bet there will! I will doctor up a new animal combination every 2,000 supporters, and to get the ball rolling, here is your request.
