I guess I'm used to the Wikipedia community, which has minimum
"notability" standards that should be met before something can be
added to the database.  I figured, if there isn't a single person
besides the designer who is motivated enough to add a game to BGG,
then maybe the game doesn't really belong there.  But it's moot now--
