BGG Guide to Publisher Corrections

Use this guide when submitting corrections:

  • For correcting publisher data
  • When adding a new publisher to an existing game and/or version

What is a publisher?

Typically a publisher is an entity who has offered a game for sale. Other examples would be:

  • A company who is giving away a game for promotional purposes and the game is logoed only by them.
  • A designer who has not only designed a game, but offered ("packaged") a PnP version.

Who is not a publisher?

The following would not be "publishers" in their own right.

  • Designer - Person who thought up the game
  • Artist - Person who designed graphics for the game
  • Copyright Holder - Person who holds copyright for printed rules and such.
  • Retail Vendor - physical store or web-based store who has bought game wholesale and is selling it retail.
  • Gamer who made a copy of a PnP game. (In this case the creator of the PnP package would be the publisher.)

None of these "made" the physical copies of the game.

How do I add a new publisher to the system?

That is a different process. From the menu bar in BGG select "Misc >> (Add to Database) Publisher".

When should I submit a correction to/for a publisher?

What is the workflow for making a publisher correction?

PLEASE FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES TO MINIMIZE ADMIN EFFORT
The Administrative effort to support the site is almost totally done by volunteers who are game enthusiasts too. There are few of them, and many users of the system. So please follow the proper workflow to minimize everyone's effort.

Case 1 - Using an existing publisher(s)

Case 2 - Using a new publisher


How can I see "unapproved" companies?=

  • "Pending" company list
  • "Pending" publisher list

Form Sections

Names

  • Pencil line - Used to edit the primary name of the game.
  • Green circle with plus - Use to add one or more alternate names

Board Game Credits

  • Red circle with "X" - Use to delete one or more existing games from the publisher
  • Green circle with plus - Use to add one or more existing game to publisher.
This just adds the publisher to the main game entry. There is no way currectly to select the version too. Add that information in the "Note to Admin" section.

Accessory Credits

  • Green circle with plus - Use to add one or more existing accessories to the publisher.

Board Game Issue Credits

This is "For periodicals only" and since BGG doesn't use periodicals, this section should be ignored for BGG corrections.

Note to Admin

This field is for things that can be useful for the admin reviewing the submission. The purpose is to explain and justify your correction.

  • Notes about how an entry is different from an existing entry. Submissions are checked against existing database entries. If an entry seems to be the same as an existing entry, it may be returned with a question or a revision request.

A link to a webpage or images of the game for reference.

When including a link to an image, thread, game entry, etc., it is helpful to include the entire link so that it is clickable, rather than the ID number of the item. For example, https://www.boardgamegeek.com/image/265476/monopoly rather than "Image 265476".
