All BoardGameGeek Settings in One Place - Text Searchable

This Geeklist is an attempt, quite possibly a Quixotic one, to gather links to all user-settable preferences/options/settings into one place.

Add a comment with other settings you know of and I'll add it to the Geeklist.

The goal is to have a SINGLE-page, text-searchable / string-search friendly list so nobody has to do the same searches for settings on multiple pages. This list is purposefully meant to be redundant.

I put as many search terms as I could think of in gray above the links to increase the chances that you can find what you need. If you searched for one of these settings using different terms, let me know and I'll add it to the wording.
