On Amazon when you look at an item, it suggests other similar items based on other people's browsing. IMDB does it too. I think BGG should have something on each game's page something like "Similar games recommended by BGG users". Instead of doing it via browsing history, it could be done through user voting, similar to the "Plays best with # number" section. Though instead of a checkbox list, you'd need the "Insert Geek Link" widget. The top 10 games could be listed in rank order somewhere near the bottom of the page or whatever. I think this would be really useful for people looking for new games, it's a feature I'd make much use of.

This feature used to exist, but it was too heavy on the servers to maintain.

Is your correlation tool no longer working as well?

The correlation tool still works but you have to coax it a bit. First try entering 100 as the min number of matches as otherwise it will say there aren't any users with enough matches (even though a lower requirement should obviously result in more matches). When checking against individual users you will again have to raise the number, e.g. if the list tells you there are 200 matches with a user, and you click their name, the tool will try the default of 75 and claim not to find enough matches (even though it just told you there were 200), but if you then manually up the requirement to 150 or 200 it will.

It previously existed, and replaced another system before that until getting dropped.

Here is some now outdated information:

I think the correlation tool may suffer a bit from the way that the XML API works these days, in many cases you don't actually get the results when you first ask for them, just a note that you'll get the results soon.
